Trump to declare Jerusalem as Israel's capital

From ABCnews.com:

Quote:
In a momentous shift of United States foreign policy in the Middle East, President Donald Trump is set to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday and initiate the process of relocating the U.S. embassy to the city from Tel Aviv, according to senior administration officials.

The president is expected to officially announce the policy changes in remarks at the White House at 1pm on Wednesday.

A U.S. official and a source close to the White House told ABC News that official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital is expected to be intentionally broad and not meant to preclude the possibility that the Palestinians could claim part of the historic city as a capital of a future Palestinian state. The president does not want to "prejudice" the outcome of any future peace negotiations for a two-state solution, one source familiar with the plan told ABC News.

If this is a pro-Israel move, I heartily applaud it. But I'm a little confused. How can Trump dictate what Israel's capital is? Shouldn't that be up to Israel?

It's about where our embassy is.

It's a diplomatic thing, similar to how we've never formally recognized Taiwan as an independent sovereign country, but continue with the One China policy to avoid escalating tensions with mainland China.

It's "pro-Israel" in posturing, but "anti" in reality. Nothing of substance changes, if this actually happens, except seeing more dead Israelis and Arabs from the new intifada that will likely be set in motion.

The US has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital since 1995.
We promised to move our embassy there then, but for diplomatic
and other reasons, we delayed the move for six months, and then
after six months delayed it again for six months, and on and on it
has been delayed until now. Since the most recent six month delay
was ending soon, trumP made a big deal about acknowledging Jerusalem
as the capital (as we have officially for 22 years already) and then
guess what, trumPlickers? HE SIGNED ANOTHER DELAY EXTENSION.

Grin Grin Grin Grin

But you losers fall for it every time. Face it, you are all part of a cult.

Well, looks like Trump is going to make this long overdue move tomorrow. So he’s doing what Clinton, GW and Obama didn’t have the guts to do. Another reason to reaffirm my vote for the Trumpster.  Smiley

What "long overdue move" are you talking about?

Another six month waiver/delay?
Just like Clinton, Bush and Obama did?
That'll sure take a lot of guts.

Damn, you trumP cultists are a gullible lot.

so you'd rather kick the can, further down the road, instead of doing what Congress voted to do in the 90's    Shocked

Even CNN is calling this a big deal, Bama. The palestinian desert primates are even calling for “three days of rage.” So Trump must be doing something right.
