And? None of this has any bearing on whether not moving the embassy is a success. Calling it such is premature at best.

It successfully takes away the Palestines veto card that they were using to stall the peace process.

The US Senate has periodically voted in support of the 1995 Bill they and the the House both sent to President Clinton's desk to "demonstrate" their continued support for moving =our Embassy to Jerusalem.  The last vote was 90 to zero!  They do this to appease AIPAC and keep those Jewish-American donors sending them checks....

Standing with our friends instead of stabbing them is the back is sadly considered a success after 8 years of Obama.

As the former chief of Israeli military intel said "Trump's recognition of Jerusalem shows Palestinians have no veto in peace negotiations, should not hold out for "better deal."



What veto?  They are powerless.  They shouldn't hold out for a better deal because Israel is taking what it wants?

Why should the palestinians jump to the negotiating table when the new premise is that they will get nothing?

This makes no sense.

The arab-israeli "peace process" has been going on as long as I can remember.  There's nothing there.   This is one of those intractable issues that historically have usually been resolved by war.  The embassy thing sends a message to the arabs:  if you don't come to terms, it won't work out well from your perspective.   Time is not on your side.

This makes no sense.

Back in 1995 Yassar Arafat had a deal for a Palistinian State at the Camp David Accord. Israel had given up everything they asked for including the 'occupied' territory.  Arafat got to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom at the Whtehouse, but this was his only real accomplishment.  When he got back home he couldn't sell his deal to the Terror Supporting Islamic Assholes.  They would not agree to the one demand of Israel; They would not recognize Israel's right to exist!  The move of our Embassy has been postponed through eight years of Bush and eight years of Obama (following the Clinton years) with evey COngress passing the concept of moving our Embassy whenever some President sings the stinking thing. The Palastinians are not bargaining in good faith.  They feel like they have nothing to lose and can eventually drive the Jews into the sea!  Wrong Assholes!  Angry

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.

Trump, like always, will have his ducks in a row before he moves it. Be patient.

ahaa ahahaa hahaha ahahahahaha hhahahahaa!

Trump is not a "ducks in a row" kind of guy.  He is a disruptor.  His M.O. is to blow things up and position himself as a power broker when the players are all looking for safety.

It is interesting that ANY nation has to go through the UN to determine it's capital.  Simply put, the UN has no authority over any soveriegn nation.  Israel has every right to declare what ever territory under their flag as their capitol.  Just a body of nations trying to establish their one world authority on us or Isreal.  We do not recognize this authority and Trump is simply executing a law passed by Congress.
  


"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."
