But Israel as a sovereign nation has always claimed that city as its capital, wasn't it after the 6 day war that Israel reclaimed the city in its entirety from Jordan , and I still don't know why the Nation of Israel cannot name its own capital as every other Nation does.
On my old globe the whole place is Palestine.
Israel can do whatever the hell they want. This isn’t about that. This is about Trump, optics and the violence such action inherently contains.
As for the Middle East itself? I refer to threads on radiofreeliberal and my comment: the whole place could fall into a black hole and I would not care. While individual persons may want peace the government’s themselves have no interest in peace.
That is what you get with "religion"; the map Schmidt published says it all. One word says it all: "Crazy"
It shows that the US meddling in everything in this world ends up in disaster; since WWII the US always "runs" into a country and runs out as hell when it is in ruins. Nation "building" is the far from my bed show.
The total stupidity done by the US after WWII related to the Jews to forcefully create an own country in a place occupied by Muslims is an typical example of an brainless policy. What they should have done, just let all the holocaust survivors return to the countries where they came from. Now 70 years plus later, we are still in the shit because of our own self inflicted wounds.
Jerusalem is now the capital of Palestine. IMHO. Trump just pissed off Palestinians, and some Arabs.
Wouldn't it have been easier for the USA to give Florida to Jewish peoples in '47-'48?
