Such a Bad Deal: Trump and Jerusalem (prospect.org)
Trump’s strange slurry speech
During his announcement today he was talking through his teeth often, even slurring the words “United States of America.”
Trump slurring his speech more than usual? Something strange going on with Trump at the end of this speech dedicating even more U.S. tax money to build new buildings in Israel while America’s infrastructure and programs suffer from underfunding. [1 min]

[Trump is the] Same as Hitler. Replace Jews with Mexicans and Muslims as the scapegoats for the problems in society.
Watching it live it looked like he had something loose on both sides of his mouth, and afterwards when he sat down to sign he was moving something around in his mouth. Is that indicative of dentures?
I am beginning to believe the Mossad have something on him from Epstein’s Island (I hate to say.)
God bless the United Shtytsh.
FULL SPEECH: President Trump declares Jerusalem as capital of Israel (11 minutes)
It’s coke. He sniffs a lot, has a dry mouth, slurs and babbles. Plus he is a rich white businessman who doesn’t drink alcohol but stays up late, doesn’t sleep much etc.
Arabs, Europe, U.N. reject Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital (yahoo.com)
“Trump moving the US embassy to Jerusalem could lead to war and him suspending elections, amount other conspiracy theories.”
What are possible, probable, and improbable results of the United states recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving the embassy there?
It seems Russia and Israel have similar “rogue” status according to international law. Israel didn’t get penalized to the extent Russia has in retaking Crimea (which was a part of Russia and is populated by Russians for over a hundred years). Jerusalem proper has been majority Jewish over a hundred years too according to Wikipedia. Both were retaken by force. But Israel at least did it after aggression against it, while Russia was the aggressor in retaking Crimea.
What are the pluses and minuses politically for this change?
What good is for the US to spend so much on a new Embassy with little positivity to come from it? It’s as wasteful as Trump’s Mexican Wall.
BTW, when will the wall be erected?
And for a lot of that base this is all part of the plan to bring on the Armageddon war and the second coming.
For decades, conservative evangelicals have been longing for this recognition. They believe it is necessary in order to regain control of the Temple mount. That is important because rebuilding the Temple is the event that will spark the events of the Book of Revelation and the End Times…They’ve been waiting for this, praying for this. They want war in the Middle East. The Battle of Armageddon, at which time Jesus Christ will return to the Earth and vanquish all God’s enemies. For certain evangelicals, this is the climax of history. And Trump is taking them there. To the promised judgment, to their sure victory. The righteous will be ushered to heaven; the reprobate will be banished to hellfire.
Trump didn’t seem to have complete understanding of Jerusalem decision: report
White House officials have already acknowledged this will likely hurt the peace process.(http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/06/politics/jerusalem-peace-process-white-house/index.html)
Of course he doesn’t understand. His narcissism dictates that he must have the best of everything around. That’s a starting point for everything. Now, if you wanted to know why recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was a bad idea and didn’t know, a normal person would do some research. A few minutes of googling would turn up some very good reasons and Trump has access to the US Intelligence community – even better than Google.
However, for him to need to learn this from people means that they knew more than he did. That can’t be allowed so Trump goes on what he already knows about the situation. In his highly uneducated state, he can’t see any downsides and decides that, he being a genius and all, everyone else just never thought of doing this. So he blindly stumbles forward, declaring himself smart (SMRT!) while not seeing or caring about how idiotic he looks as long as his “I’m a genius” mental bubble isn’t popped.
Trumpers also tout that Senate voted on this, and there is no language in the bill that supports this.
He can’t even point to where Israel is on a map.
Over 400 Palestinian villiages destroyed by Jews to make way for the ‘great nation of Israel
Just because the Palestinians have not been allowed to as you would describe it “form a sovereign” state does not make the map bullsh*t. It is an area of land that has been occupied by the Palestinian people for thousands of years and the map gives an indication of the shrinking land that is theirs. I guess the American Indians didn’t have and nation either because it didn’t follow as to what you believe a nation or a country to be. To be something it has to be “declared”.

“This is the coffin nail for the GOP. Enough evidence to support it, but their self interests and fear killed this. While I don’t think the vote was proper at this time, it was a political statement and more powerful than assumed. Rep Green just forced a hand, and the GOP lost.”[SH]

Israel is the problem. But instead of this fabled Zionist lobby we have been taken over by seditious pro-Russians.
Why Is Trump Recognizing Jerusalem As The Capital Of Israel?
Jerusalem is the center of the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Israel has called Jerusalem its undivided capital, while Palestine claims the eastern half of the city as its capital.
In 1947, the United Nations worked to create a homeland for Jews in the Middle East with the idea that Jerusalem would be a separate “international city.” However, the war to establish an Israeli state led to the city being divided.
In 1949, the “Green Line” (a border created through negotiations at the end of the war) was established, giving Israel the western half of Jerusalem and Jordan the eastern half.
That arrangement lasted for nearly 20 years until the Six-Day War in 1967 at which time Israel occupied East Jerusalem and has kept it since then.
In 1980, Israel passed a law stating Jerusalem was the united capital of Israel.
While Israel claims Jerusalem, the rest of the world has refrained from assigning capital status to either side until and unless Israel and Palestine can come to an agreement on who owns what. Resolving that issue is perhaps the most difficult part of finding a peaceful end to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The United States keeps its embassy in Tel Aviv, like most other countries. Also, like other countries, the U.S. has a consulate in Jerusalem.
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will move the U.S. embassy to that city in the near future.
Trump’s decision is likely to incite unrest in the region where for more than 70 years most countries have stayed out of the dispute over who owns one of the most significant religious areas in the world.
What happened Wednesday?
Why is that causing so much commotion?
Why hasn’t the embassy moved before?
Who would be in favor of the move?
Who would be against it?
What is the reaction from the rest of the world?
- Speaking to reporters in Moscow, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the “the situation is not easy.” He said Putin discussed the issue with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas late on Tuesday and expressed his concern about “a possible deterioration.” Peskov said, however, that the Kremlin would refrain from commenting a decision that has not been announced yet.
- British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is calling on the U.S. administration to present a Mideast peace plan because the decision clearly “makes it more important than ever that the long-awaited American proposals on the Middle East peace process are now brought forward.”
- Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has condemned Trump’s imminent recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The state TV’s website quotes Khamenei as saying that “when they (U.S.) claim that they want to declare Jerusalem as the capital of occupied Palestine, it shows their inability. ”
- China has expressed concerns over “possible aggravation of regional tensions” in response to the expected U.S. announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Geng Shuang, a spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said on Wednesday the China would monitor developments on the issue.
- Syria’s Foreign Ministry says Trump’s expected announcement to recognize of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a “dangerous step” that will fuel global conflict. The ministry in Damascus issued a statement on Wednesday calling Trump’s imminent move the “culmination of the crime of the seizing of Palestine and the displacement of the Palestinian people.”
- Two leading Lebanese newspapers have issued front page rebukes to Trump over his expected announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The An-Nahar compares the U.S. president to the late British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour, who a hundred years ago famously promised Palestine as a national home to the Jewish People, in what is known as the Balfour Declaration. The paper’s Wednesday headline reads: “Trump, Balfour of the century, gifts Jerusalem to Israel.”
- Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says the “whole world is against” Trump’s move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and eventually move the U.S. Embassy there. He says that moving the embassy to Jerusalem would be a “grave mistake.”
- Morocco’s King Mohammed VI, writing as head of the 57-member Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s Al-Quds Committee, also expressed his “deep personal concern” and “the great concern felt by Arab and Muslim states and peoples” over the moves in a letter to Trump Tuesday. “The current step is likely to negatively impact the prospects of a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict,” the letter said.
- Pope Francis is calling for the status quo of Jerusalem to be respected and for “wisdom and prudence” to prevail to avoid further conflict. “I pray to the Lord that its identity is preserved and strengthened for the benefit of the Holy Land, the Middle East and the whole world and that wisdom and prudence prevail to prevent new elements of tension from being added to a global context already convulsed by so many cruel conflicts.”
