    I do not think it furthers the goal, but neither do I think it distances it. From the Palestinians' perspective, there will be no peace so long as Jerusalem is inhabited by Jews - and from Hamas', so long as Israel is inhabited by Jews. The Palestinians generally will not recognize a Jewish state, period, and so while this move may antagonize them, nothing reasonable will placate them, either.

    Dragonfly asked you a question. He hit home,or you would not have gone off at him.

    Are you willing to join up if this Iíll advised decision explodes and causes more deaths in the region? A simple yes or no will suffice.

    But I appreciate you taking the unprovoked personal jab at me nonetheless.
    So you're Machiavellian and proud of it?

    If I were the moderators I'd ban you for making that statement. It's like going into a business and saying "this place is a joke." Why would they want you there?

    And you're taunting by using the statement as your signature.

    Keeping the embassy in Tel Aviv has brought about peace.. HELL NO..

    So for 70 years we have tried to make an apple pie but have been using a strawberry cake mix... and we cannot figure out why we keep getting strawberry cake.

    Now Trump just put an apple pie mix in the oven.

    In the oven? What a frankly distasteful metaphor with regards to the Jewish State.

    He's actually so ignorant he probably didn't have a clue that the metaphor was distasteful. But what do you expect from someone that voted for Trump and thinks Trump's the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel? You can't get much more ignorant than that.

    Israel says that their capital is in Jerusalem. Are they not allowed to declare where their capital is located? Their government is located there. The United States recognizing that Jerusalem is the capital is a bad thing? Sorry, I know some have to hate it because President Trump was that one to do it but was supposed to happen.

    How will moving the capital to Jerusalem and pissing off the Palestinians help with peace in the region? Do you think this move will add to or subtract from the violence? Do you even care?
