Trump to Announce Embassy Move to Jerusalem Tomorrow?

Hat tip Breitbart

It looks like the Palestinians won't be passing out candy and celebrating in the streets tomorrow. They only do that when they've murdered innocents. According to Breitbart, it looks like President Trump will announce the move of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday.

Of course, we won't be surprised if we see violence from the Arab/Palestinian world in response. It doesn't take much to set them off into a murderous frenzy as we all know. Then again, they don't even need a reason.

Yeah, sort of like if Britain moved its Canadian embassy to Detroit.

Gary Fouse said...

We would not like that. Detroit is not our capital.

Siarlys Jenkins said...

Furthermore, it is not within the boundaries of Canada.

You should research the Muslim claims on Jerusalem. They are based on Islamic scripture that Mohammad traveled on a winged horse to the farthest mosque from whence he flew to heavan to confer with previous prophets.The Jews' claim is based on solid historical fact.

Muslim claims on Jerusalem are irrelevant, just as there is a difference between Jewish claims and Israeli claims. What is relevant is that east Jerusalem is territory seized by war (a perfectly justified military action) and the final political settlement has yet to be agreed to.

What I think would be best is to ban either the future Palestinian republic or Israel from maintaining national government functions there, ban all embassies to either country from being located there, and develop a distinct municipal government which acknowledges and accommodates all religious interests in the city while cooperating with the national governments of both republics. Perhaps law enforcement could be entrusted to a special force of Northern Irish Catholics and veterans of Inkatha.

Muslim claims on Jerusalem are, more than anything else, 'We took if from the Byzantines, with the help of the local Jewish population, reverently gathered the fragments of the Temple destroyed by the Romans, incorporating them into a place of honor in our newly built mosque, and we've been there ever since, except for a bloody episode when some Germanic Christian converts briefly seized the city, slaughtered all the Muslims, Christians, and Jews they could track down, and held it for a little while.'

That is also true of the West Bank and Gaza.

What makes you think the US will move the embassy to East Jerusalem?

Palestinians have no objection to anything that might happen in the portion of Jerusalem that existed within the boundaries of Israel prior to 1967. But to both the Palestinians, Christian as well as Muslim, and to Israel, particularly the Jewish population of Israel, what is important is East Jerusalem, the old walled city, the ancient site with all the religious shrines. Moving the embassy to East Jerusalem would be an affront.

Nobody has proposed to put the Embassy to Israel in the West Bank or Gaza.

I am sure they will put the embassy in West Jerusalem. The problem is the Palestinians want it all-all of Jerusalem and all of Israel. From the river to the sea.
