    How is moving the embassy going to advance our own interest? I see no benefit to the U.S. by doing so.

    To some extent, yes. There's probably no major logistical or financial reason to move the embassy. I'm not sure it's fair to say this move will destabilize the area any more. Most of Israels neighbors are looking for any reason to attack. They'll do so even if they don't have a good reason. History has proven that.

    Personally, I think it's the right move. Israel recognizes Jerusalem as their capitol and we should too. My faith also convicts me to believe that it's in our vital national interest to recognize Jerusalem for what it is. Some Muslims will be upset but they've been on the warpath for 1400 years. Trump moving an embassy shouldn't have too much bearing on that.
     

  3. This opinion piece is spot on. What a bunch of hypocrites in the Congress, but that isn't exactly news. Jerusalem is why Trump's in the White House

    I have spent a fair amount of time in Israel (10+ trips), including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, etc. Logistically it makes sense to move, as there are ongoing security concerns for all of our embassy staff and their families. Driving from/to our current embassy along the waterfront in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has risks, each and every trip.

    This may be the first time in
    American history that a president is
    being attacked for keeping a
    promise made by the politicians
    who are attacking him.

    Yep. That says it all!

    Hamas says Trump has opened 'the gates of hell' and calls for 'day of rage' - Geller Report

    The group has also repeatedly called for a Palestinian “day of rage” on 8 December as well.

    Now you want to support him using his power when National security is involved not when he trys to implement a travel ban like so many other POTUS have done before him.

    No actually you would have been defending his move like you did so very often before.

    Nope a show of support. Might unstabilize the Muslims a bit . Might be why they are all complaining they know the US can be of serious aid to them if we chose to.

    You first have to be a adult or act like one at least bubba.

    Just because you don't see doesn't mean others are blind also. I'm sure the US has a agenda.

    Instead of spending billions to build a new State Dept fortress to be occupied by eggheads in Jerusalem, use this money to build a bigger modern and more effective US military.

    Build it and piss the Muslim leaders off. High time we made it perfectly clear we support Israel.

    Leading from the front. I like it.

    I'm still not a Trump guy but, this is the right move. I support him 100%.
