    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.

    The Middle East has been in a constant state of flux since Biblical times,The last time the map was changed was during the 6 Day War, although Israel has since given back the Golen Heights to Jordan with the proviso that they would no longer lob shells or motar fire into Israel from there.

    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?

    Yes you are right; then they would have been faced with Irma; not me!!! Ha ha. Their prayers would have been as effective as those of the evangelicals.!

    In my mind, and my opinion, it is too. There's something wrong with today's picture.

    Pence has postponed his visit to Israel because of the "tax" revamp vote. I've got only one question; What the hell is he going to do there on tax payer cost? He's about the worst "evangelical" you can get, who has no business at all in an Jewish/Muslim area. No one in that area wants to hear about what his "boss"(Trump) said; except the Jews. Let's hope they keep Pence or lock him up.
