    President Trump to Recognize Jerusalem as Capital

    Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, forge ahead with moving US Embassy | Fox News

    President Trump on Wednesday will order the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, senior administration officials said, a move that fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives but one that could inflame tensions across the Middle East.

    In his announcement, Trump will say that the U.S. government recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. One official described it as an "honest" acknowledgement of a "seven-decade old fact."

    “While President Trump recognizes that the status of Jerusalem is a highly sensitive issue, he does not think it will be resolved by ignoring the simple truth that Jerusalem is home to Israel’s legislature, its Supreme Court, the prime minister and is such the capital of Israel,” one official said.


    The U.S. would be the first country to move its embassy to Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians. Other countries who have diplomatic relations with Israel keep their embassies in Tel Aviv.

    But the embassy move would not be immediate and could take at least three or four years.

    The U.S. officials said there are currently about 1,000 personnel in the embassy in Tel Aviv. They added that there is no facility in Jerusalem ready to serve as the embassy site, and it will take time to address security, design and cost concerns.

    "It will take some time to find a site, address security concerns, design a new facility, fund a new facility -- working with Congress, obviously -- and build it," one official said. "So this is not an instantaneous process."
    I'm very happy about this!
    Thanks from Jeremy

    Good.

    Jews settled that land long before anyone. Before Islam was even a religion. Israel and the Jews have their most Holy site there we predates any Muslims by hundreds of years. Israel says it is their Capitol, so therefor it is. We don't hold any other country to some ridiculous standard.

    I admit I have no feelings about this issue one way or the other. I just hope nobody gets killed because of the decision.
