Tel Aviv to Jerusalem


#1

Trump’s announcement. What do you think will be the outcome?

Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do

After more than two decades of waivers, we are no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result

High time!

The Arab Street may put on a little hissy fit. Don’t think they will attack any of our embassies now that there is a new sheriff in town. Long term message to the Arab world: Jerusalem is NOT on the bargaining table. The President’s speech was one of his best:

Yet another example of a President who actually DOES what he promised to do during the campaign! Clinton, G.W. Bush and Obama ALL PROMISED to do this during their campaigns.

I think this is excellent news.


#7

I’m indifferent to it. I agree that decades of waivers to keep out of Jerusalem is stupid. So far as upsetting the “peace”, that’s an irrelevant joke.


#8

This will give the Islamists another excuse to commit more violence, which is what they want to do anyways.


#9

Trump’s done a brilliant job so far in building Middle Eastern alliances.

Let Trump be Trump. If anyone can magically pull a peace deal with Israel and Palestine out of a hat, it’s him. The one thing I’ve said from day one, is you can never say anything is impossible with him. Unlikely, but not impossible.

While this perhaps may be a catalyst, nothing will happen of any profound significance until there is a rather large battle and a certain someone steps in to create a peace treaty.

Me? .


#12

Hardly!


#13

Macron?


#14

Uh, I’d check on that…


#15

Interesting video but …your point is what???

Did you watch all the way to the end?
