Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and will move the embassy.

Got to give him credit for following through on his campaign promise.

Have no idea what this will do to the region, but it will be interesting to watch.

Reality on the ground was that Jerusalem was capital for a very long time.  Muslims threats of terrorist violence should be met with security and willingness to take out their terror networks where the stand.

Hopefully this allows the peace process to get to more realistic grounds.  Muslim always start the peace process with a statement about turning Jerusalem back over to Islamic control.   Since that is just never going to happen, peace is stalled.

You think this would stop them from saying that?

Very naive.

nope.  But hopefully starts a process.  They been stuck in their current state for 60 years.  Probably going to be stuck for another 60.  

What is not naive is keeping the war over on their ground, not here on ours.  We have to remain ever diligent and continuously improve our stance in this regard.   2002/2003 was war in Iraq.  This last year it as been root out ISIS and destroy them, missiles on Syria,  Travel ban, and extreme vetting.  Iran learned long ago, you can never stop improving in this regard, we need to do the same.  Next year will be something new.  

Just happy we have a President that is showing some interest in keeping us safe.

trump recruiting for terrorists again. There is no advantage for us taking this position now. While it is probably realistic to accept Jerusalum as the capital, it really pulls the rug out from under Kershner's attempts to get a peace accord. Israel, a very valuable and dependable ally, is the only beneficiary here. We get nada.

Multiple Presidents have called for the moving and President Obama clearly stated that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.  

Nothing but cheap shots from Fresh.  No substance as usual.

Guess who said these:
“repeatedly challenged Israel’s sovereignty over a united Jerusalem” 
“Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”

Obama was no friend of Israel. On that count we differ.

Following the US, the Czech Republic just formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, breaking from the EU. This is huge in Europe.

The Senate voted 90-0 earlier this year to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Europe.  Not sure why Democrats like Fresh are so upset by this.

I'm not sure if this is a spelling admonition, but the capital of California is Sacramento.  As opposed to the Capitol Building in D.C.

What?? A better question is why the US gives money to the Palestinian Authority so that they can promote terrorism.
