U.S. Officially Recognizes Jerusalem As Israel's Capital

On December 6, US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He also announced plans to relocate the US Embassy there.

“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,” Trump said from the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room. “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.”

According to experts, the US move will only further contribute to the growing tensions in the region.

Governments across the Middle East – Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia Jordan, Iran and others, have already spoke against the decision.

    The Rothschild mercenary terrorist neocolony ISISrael and its puppet Trump are celebrating early Hanukah this year. Should be a reminder for those trusting in their “Western partners” and expecting them to honor deals they sign.

    • Rob

      In the Middle East America have allowed Israhell like an unchained dog to bite as many people and land they can.

    • Rob

      Who are terrorists in the world now?

      Hezbollah or America and Israhell that systematically intruded into the Middle East region and demolished thousands of mosques in the Middle East and now control two man mosques of Muslims faith.

      • Nigel Maund

        The answer Rob is very simple: The UK, USA and Israel and the puppet EU. These are the global terrorist nations.

        • Rex drabble

          Hello Nigel,perhaps you could help me with my Question directed to Rob or any one here on this site.I know all about the deep state, one world govt but I dont get the importance of this issue.

          • jade villaceran

            Jerusalem is palistine, that is the answer

          • Rex drabble

            Thanyou.So The US is actually going against Israel by doing this,given that Palestine is basically Israels enemy.If that is the case it is music to my ears.

        • You can call me Al

          I shall try and defend my Country, the UK. Whilst we have made dreadful decisions, we have done so under duress.

          We made peace with the locals in Helmond, Iraq.
          We intentionally disobeyed orders from the US in Libya and didn’t kill thousands.
          We have walked out of Syria.

          Do not lump us in with both of those vile creatures.

      • Rex drabble

        What is the real core issue here?How does this affect a persons personal faith?
        If I was a muslim living in NZ what difference does it make that Mecca is in another country versus in the street I live in.Isnt it about Faith?
        I may well be naive as I dont have a belief in anything other than myself and my own abilities.Perhaps you could enlighten me.I would appreciate it.

        • Rob

          Let say I am a Christian, a Muslim or a Jew or any other faith follower, right. Now I am unable to go to my worship house where I could worship to my God because the government stop me that worship place is closed or during my prayer police or army comes and jump on my prayer tables or come and step on my prayer mate. Look this is a very sensitive matter. America and Israhell demolishing their prayer houses not only of Muslims but of every single faith Christian, Jewish etc. This is evil and against humanity. You tell me for what purpose America and Israhell taking control of the Middle East countries? Every single country in the world hate Israhell and America because they are terrorists.

          • Politolog Externista

            we had something like that after communists takeover, lots of clergy were tortured and some outright killed when they felt threatened. Murrica needs chaos, they need more refugees to fill europe. They want terrorism in Europe to wipe out Christians for them. Because brainwashing isnt enough. Ziofreemasons + saudis at work.

          • Rex drabble

            I agree they are both terrorists but how can they enforce this decision?Is the next step to invade Palistine?Is Palistine obligate to allow the embassy move,if not then where is the problem?They only have to refuse and this will go no further.Is this not about enraging people with words alone?

    • Justin

      Trump is doing Deals with Israel and Jewish Elite so that he can “make America great again” and to also “drain the swamp” in exchange for Israeli wishes!
      I think trump would be dead by now if he wasn’t conforming to Israel’s wishes!
      But this also goes against Saudi Arabia! How can Saudi Arabia (and secretly ISIS) be Israeli allies now that Jerusalem (the most holy city in the world according to all religions) is in the hands and control of Israel and the most powerful nation in the world!

      from this, I would consider Saudi Arabia’s alliance with Israel could not be formed as the Muslim demand within Saudi Arabia from Sunni’s AND shiia would REVOLT against MBS if he were to continue aligning with Israel! He already has powerful enemies in the princes he jailed! how is it possible that Saudi Arabia can deal with an Iranian / youth / shiia threat AND a muslim revolt if they are to allying with Israel and the US after this current news!

      his could almost ally all muslims of all sects against Israel and the USA!
      Maybe this was the master plan after all?
      Maybe this is complete back fire?
      Maybe Israel and the USA wants to have Saudi Arabia completely dependent on them for survival but also stuck with a fucked up situation! MBS met now choose between risking the entire Saudi Kingdom to a revolution for aligning with Israel OR capitulate under Iranian pressure.
      This could drive MBS into the arms of the USA and ensure that Aramco is traded on the US stock exchange and ensure that KSA’s oil is traded in US dollars!

      OR KSA und into the arms of Russia and China and trades its oil in the new Petro Yuan!

      This is a Very significant moment in history we are witnessing!
      what will the islamic world do?
      We all know that Israel plans to take back the Dome of the rock (I think the 3rd most holy place in islam where Muhammad died and ascended into heaven) and build its temple for the “holiest of holies”which apparently MUST be built exactly where the dome of the rock is built!
      I mean exactly which means the structure must be destroyed!

      I could easily see it being destroyed by a missile and blamed on Lebanon Hezbollah!

      Either way, sit is going down!

      Anyone who is alive today is likely to be living for the next world war!

    Trump unwillingly brought the ONE state solution closer to emerge as the only good solution

      Not unwillingly he is a Zionist stooge like the rest, only with family links to Zionist Jews, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, etc., which makes him more of a rabid Zionist

      • matt

        Without apartheid sure! About the refugees: Most died allteady, their children and grandchildren should be given the choice to go back or get the nationality of their current residence.

    So, how do all the Sunnis that fight with USA feel ??? XD

    Like I have said so many times. Sunnies are very stupid.

    • GroundlessAir

      Only Wahhabis and Salafis are. I love how Trump fucks with their feelings though.

    • Rob

      This is not the matter of Sunnis. There are traitors like King Salman that work for America and Israhell.

    • Without USA or Israel you idiot Muslims would still kill each other off, Sunni vs Shia, even Ali, Hasan were killed like dogs by fellow Muslims, you disbelieve? well, crack open a Koran and see for yourself what murderous cult you fools follow.

        Dont understand why you call me a muslim. XD. You amlerican nazi just don’t talk to me and don’t try to gicve me advice ok ? Where are the Amerridians ? Who did industrial slavery ? Who is genociding the Palestinians ?

        American nazis don’t talk to me. I have no respect for you. Less than a dog poop.

      They are traitors. They are more happy on the victory of America and Israhell because they work for them.

      • Serious

        Sunnis trusted them. They make wars against palestinians friend states.

  • GroundlessAir

    God bless Donald J. Trump. This would’ve never happened under Hitlery Killton, which instead would’ve launched more regime-change operations and blockades. I just love how POTUS isolates America from traditionally staunchest allies of the regime, MSM and certain western countries. I certainly hope this trend continues cause everybody is sick of US hegemony since 1990.

    • Rodger

      Yup, he just gave 100’s of useless Arab allies the finger.

    • If you mean Arab allies then you are very much right, The Saudis, Qataris, Kuwait and other rich Arab countries don’t give a fuck about the Palestinians, they have a bigger problem encroaching its borders from all sides…IRAN!!!

  • Serious

    US will loose world hegemony because of israel.

    • Rodger

      Wouldn’t want to be a CIA operative going to a meet right now, that’s for sure.

    • Rob

      Already US have lost their ancient power in front of Russia and China. Now US has become an old man.

      • cortisol

        I always like to symbolize USA with a steroid user, who has been using almost most of his life. In the end the crash comes and he becomes weak, senile and impotent within a short amount of time.

        USA is a bubble built on controlling half of the world. If it loses even the slightest of it, the sudden crash process will start. They are now reduced to controlling these vassals with mere bribes and threats instead of mutual respect and understanding, which are the long term sustainable options. In essence they are now rapidly completely now devouring, feeding and killing their subjects to survive.

        This is the accelerating process, where the steroid user crashes.

  • Serious

    Go. fight Assad, fight Hezbollah and fight Iran !!! XD

  • Rakean Jaya

    Thank you Trump, at least you have put US mask off, the US was indeed controlled by zionist. From now on, remove US from peace mediator roles as Israel always wanted to.

    • Palestinians don’t want peace, if they did they would have gotten it since when Israel offered land for peace but they rejected it…now Jerusalem does not belong to them again…Foolish Arabs!

      • Rakean Jaya

        No need to argue with ‘kid’, better for you to start distancing from MSM, then came back here.

        • Palestine is lost, they can never have Jerusalem, that dream is gone forever, you Muslims can cry all you want but nothing is gonna change that fact!

          • Rakean Jaya

            Ok i have to educate you then. First, read UN Res 181, the creation of Israel with Tel Aviv as capital, proposed in the chaos situations of WW2 aftermath. Israel with her ISIS (haganah, Irgun)at that time terrorized it’s surrounding neighbours. with help from international zionist crime organization in form of modern arm, intelegent and militias/mercenaries from most of eastern europe – Czechs especially, they make wars( provoke and terrorized or false flag) every 5-10 years, all israel wars were war by design (except 1973 war)since they knew those Arab countries are weak militarily, but Israel naratives in MSM was ‘Israel got attacked’ and it’s Arab faults. Second, the UN Res 242, to prove the story above, that require Israel to reverse its crimes action. Third, Camp David I (Egypt-Israel), it’s required Israel to settle (retreat from Palestinian territory’s) within 3-5 years. Forth, Oslo Accord, Quartet Recommendations, Arab Peace Initiative (ignored by Israel). You know what? ISRAEL HAVE VIOLATED ALL OF THEM (UN Res and Peace Accord’s). Israel is the culprit, the thieve who should make an actions first, the thieve who should give the land back to legal owner, the thieve/invader who should abide law.
            That’s all for know kids, get educate please.

          • If you think the garbage you wrote is meant to educate me then I think you must be retarded, learn proper grammar before you think if educating anyone.

          • Rakean Jaya

            Ok sorry for my writing, since i’m not English native speaking. But i believe you are not an idiot, and still got the point. That the Israel is the culprit, and you have been brainwashed so long, that makes you became a near idiot.

          • No one brainwashed me pal, I read and get my information from multiple sources, I an not even Jewish, don’t have any Jewish friends either but I strongly believe they need a homeland right there in Israel!

          • Rakean Jaya

            Ok maybe you still get wrong media sources. I respect your position regarding Palestinian-Israel conflict. If you believe Israel need homeland so do i, the problem is in which boundaries, 1948,1967,2017 borders?. and also please do not throw false accusations or false claim, here is yours “Palestinians don’t want peace, if they did they would have gotten it since when Israel offered land for peace but they rejected”, When Israel offering land for peace? in 2000,Barak-Arafat negotiation? and whos land in the first place?
            Israel should not offering land that not belong to them, Israel should make peace agreement and just leave it, like they did with Egypt when they returning Sinai back to Egypt.

  • RichardD

    The US UNSC veto should be bypassed using UNGA Resolution 377 A to admit Palestine as a full member of the UN using the 67 borders. So that they’l be in a stronger position to implement all of the UN and other international law resolutions that Israel is violating.

    • Shy Talk

      “whats in it for them” is the endless cycle of hate and violence that they seem to feed on, and that their countries economies depend on, and the ability to set up a false flag attack in Jerusalem and blame it on Iran, bringing an attack on Iran one step closer, so the cycle continues

    • zman

      My thought is that since the US/ISrael couldn’t goad Russia and Syria into a war, this is their way of causing unrest in the Arab world and instigating violence, the only thing the US and Israel is good at. When there is unrest throughout the Arab countries that the US/ISrael controls (or at least sleeps with), then their cohorts can use it to unleash martial law in those countries. This can be used to foment further unrest and possible conflict throughout the rest of the Arab/Muslim nations…which is exactly what they have been going for. This was not just another idiotic move by the Buffoon in chief, this is a calculated move on behalf of his masters. This is plan B.

      • Thegr8rambino

        yes i have thought about this. but this move seems to be uniting the arab world against israel and the US, with the violence being directed pretty much all at them

  • Nigel Maund

    We all knew Trump was an out and out Zionist, further underscored by his Zionist – Israeli son – in – law, Jared Kushner. The Rothschild’s and their Ilk will be celebrating in spades as they achieve the culmination of the deal they pulled off with British pro – Zionist Prime Minister Arthur Balfour before WW1 which laid the foundations of the transfer of Palestine to the Jews and formation of Israel in 1948. Now the Zionists control the Al Aqsa Mosque, the third most holy shrine in Islam, one cannot imagine the rage now seething within every Muslims breast. Trump, being essentially dumb, has gone where no former US President dared to go. Now the US and its allies will pay the price of their slavish adherence to the Zionist agenda. Any doubt about the US being a Zionist controlled puppet State have now been completely banished. The US now deserves the bitter harvest it will reap from this astonishingly arrogant act of utter diplomatic stupidity.

    • Rob

      Israhell also control Kaba the Qabla of Muslims. Towards Kaba the Qabla Muslims do prayer five times. Muslims are unaware.

  • Serious

    That’s why I was with Trump. Obama and Clinton were playing with Arabs “We want peace, we want peace”. Obama does a fake speech to Egyptians “Salam alikoum” he was saying. And Arabs applaused him.

    I knew Trump will put this hypocrisy mask off .

  • Lav

    MAGA? MIGA more likely.

  • Lazy Gamer

    The US now joins a club of states and organizations with a direct claim to a plot of land in Jerusalem. lol

    The move could have been less provocative like opening some US office there on an intl city but it is there now.

    A possible counter move by others could be setting up their own embassy/minor office there but not under Israel.

    Please Watch the video and listen to what the hook nose bastard is saying;
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX4YpsNlmkw

    journalist David Bedein, the head of the Center for Near East Policy
    Research, warned that the law requiring the US embassy to be relocated
    from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over
    its capital, and that it would be better for Israel if US President
    Donald Trump signed the Security Waiver delaying the implementation of
    the law in order to provide time for Congress to fix the problems with
    the legislation.

    “I was in
    Washington, in the capital, when the law was passed. I watched the
    negotiation go on, when Faisal Husseini, representing the PLO, and Yossi
    Beilin, representing the Israeli government, watered down the law.
    Instead of a law which would recognize the sovereignty over Jerusalem by
    Israel, but instead just moves the embassy without sovereignty,” Bedein
    said.

    “It goes
    according to the American law which, number one, doesn’t recognize
    Jerusalem as part of Israel, and number two, makes [Jerusalem] into a
    Corpus separatum, separate from Israel. If Trump delays the move of the
    embassy, that is very good, because it allows for a change in the law,”
    he said.

    He warned
    that the law “is phrased in such a way that it can allow another embassy
    to come in here, another capital to come in here, and it does not
    recognize Jerusalem as part of Israel.”

    He called
    on US citizens to contact their representatives in Congress to amend the
    law in the coming months to add recognition of Israeli sovereignty over
    Jerusalem to the legislation.
