President Donald Trump will announce Wednesday that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, senior administration officials said
The U.S. will move its embassy to the city, but that could take "years" — possibly three to four — and there is no location yet for the new facility, officials said

From the article:
"Trump notified Arab leaders on Tuesday that he intends to make the major change in calls to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Jordan's King Abdullah, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Saudi Arabia's King Salman. Many of the leaders warned that unilateral U.S. steps on Jerusalem would derail a fledgling U.S.-led peace effort and unleash turmoil in the region."

Derail peace efforts? With terrorists? LOL. It's not possible to make peace with Arabs. It's a waste of time.
My message to Arabs and Muslims who hate us.....Fuck You. We don't exist to make you happy, we exist to make us happy.

Oh, by the way.....why would we want to support the Arabs, and go against Israel? When have you fucking Arabs ever done anything good for us and mankind? Israel gives us life saving drugs, technology that improves our standard of living, and have never threatened us or anyone who wants to live in peace. You fucking animals hate everyone, threaten and hurt everyone, send your lunatic suicide bombers to kill our children, and have done nothing in modern times to help mankind. And you want us to support you? Really? You inbred wackos have very little intelligence, are lazy as hell, and the only talent you possess is to kill and torment others, just like your beloved child molesting Mohammad the "perfect Muslim"
We don't need you, the world does not need you. Please please kill each other.
God bless.

The "peace process" in the Mideast has been going on my whole life. All process, no peace.

Peace in the Mideast is never going to happen.

The peace process that never brings peace will continue regardless of what we do. May as well do what is in our interests.

And moving the embassy will serve what purpose? Be a benefit in what way? How many other countries have embassies in Jerusalem?.... I wonder why that might be...

The Knesset, Supreme Court, Prime Minister's office/residence, Foreign Affairs and most government offices are in Jerusalem.

Under every conceivable "peace deal" big chunks of Jerusalem were going to be Israel's capital. Why wouldn't are Embassy be there? It has been US law for over 20 years.

In terms of "other countries" treatment of Israel. I don't think Europe, Russia, China and the Muslim/Arab World have a great track record when it comes to dealing with Israel and the Jews.

Peace won’t come from appeasing the Arabs.

Netanyahu and Trump are the first ones willing to shove a middle finger at the Muslim nations...and might finally achieve some level of peace.

What? There’s no purpose or benefit to it precisely because it angers so many countries. And if you don’t know why that is the case, then perhaps you need to educate yourself more about the region.

Fear of Arab oil embargo.

If Arabs sold Parsley, Plastic Washers, and novelty X-ray Glasses instead of Oil, the embassies would have been in Jerusalem decades ago.

Sudan, Myanmar, Pakistan, so many countries where human rights are violated and so many murdered all the time. The UNHCR is only interested in Israel.

The Palestinians go to the peace process, are offered 95% of JEWdea and Samaria, then flounce in a huff and declare an intifada.

This is a wonderful gesture that's ALREADY BEEN APPROVED by the USA as punishment for walking away from negotiations.

For 2000 years, Jews said "Next Year in JEWrusalem." not "Next year in Tel Aviv" which didn't even exist until recently. ALL of Jerusalem will be Israeli. Historically, Arabs have closed the city on a whim when they were butthurt, shookdown Pilgrims, they simply can't be trusted with it's administration.

Israel's words are backed with nuclear weapons, so any talk of the Palestinians who bred like rabbits from a few hundred thousand into millions over a few generations moving in and voting is an absolute non-starter. We don't need another Lebanon. The Paleban moved there and ignited a Civil War.

I don't know why people are so opposed to this, it's been the law and approved by an overwhelming majority of both Dems and Republicans for 20+ years.

All Trump is doing is refusing to issue a National Security Waiver to postpone it yet again.

If it's so horrendous and unpopular, surely Congress will withdraw their own legislation.

Oh it angers other countries, like the Muslim countries that terrorize us. Their terrorist activities angers us even more, so fuck them. We ain't giving in to their threats. Who the hell do these 7th century barbarians think they are, ordering us around.

Not to mention that virtually all of Israel's capital government buildings have been located in Western Jerusalem for decades.

Are all the Western ISIS lackeys who are all butt-hurt over moving the US embassy to Israel's capital really foresee a future where Israel uproots the Knesset and Supreme Court from West Jerusalem?

Is Trump going to build an embassy there, and use that for leverage to give half of Jerusalem to the Palestinians later? The only way he would have time to complete such a plan is if they get to building and build quickly. Otherwise, he might as well let Jared go skiing for the 3 yrs. He'd have as much luck negotiating peace from Aspen's slopes as anywhere else.
