    Maybe he's trying to smoke out the last of the diehard jihadists while we've got them on the run. Thay won't be able to resist the bait.

    Stump I sat on the arbitration board regarding contracts with teachers a number of years ago. One demand the teachers wanted was simply not practical nor fiscally responsible. They however felt it was paramount. Once it hit arbitration and they knew the outcome would not involve that demand, things went quickly.

    Even though they are saying this is not the reason for it, I believe in large part it is. Takes it off the table on peace negotiations. The Muslims want the old city back period, anything short of that means no deal. So Trump says hey this area is not one either side is willing to give on, we could sit here another 100 years and it will not change. Making it clear that the city is part of Israel takes a lot of huff and puff away and might even give Israel a way to return some portions of the eastern part back to Arab control. Otherwise it is like watching two three year olds fight over the last donut. The adult ends the skirmish by taking the donut away! In this case essentially that is what he did.

    So you want the US to intervene all over the world in each of these situations.

    Why exactly are we giving Israel money we don’t have? What’s our big for Israel? All I have to say is their military is top notch(Their tank is one of the best if not the best out there) and their women are smoooooooking hot.

    Eel then what does it matter then . You are trapped by your own argument, one being it' Ok to deny it, but It' not our business?
    The fact is thus is racism support for genocide and capitulation to enemies of free western democracies.

    Dems don' like Jews just their votes,

    This is exactly how you deal with such demands, now let the negotiations begin.

    Folks are caught up in the myth that conflict resolution has to have a win-win outcome. Nothing could be further from the truth. So what if every one doesn't feel good. There are always lessons to be learned. This represents a classic learning opportunity.

    That's the point. I couldn't care less where Israel says it's capital is. The US can put its embassy wherever. But the US has no business saying what a countrys capital is. The US should shut up and let the country say whatever it wants.

    Eel we are not, we simply are acknowledging it! Just as we acknowledge other countries. You are just against Jews and Israel because it is predominately Jewish!
