    The question still has not been answered as to what the advantages of the move are.

    Au contraire, mon frere. It has been answered. It has not been answered to your satisfaction.

    I bet the terrorists wish gasoline and bread were cheaper. I agree with them. Damn, I guess that makes me a supporter of terrorists in your eyes. ROFLMAO!

    And who receives tangible benefits from having delivered this message?

    Wrong, I answered the question. The advantage is that it clearly tells the region we recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. How does it feel to side with the Palestinians on this just because you hate Trump so much?

    Usually. Not always. I mentioned that the U.S. embassy in the Netherlands is NOT in Amsterdam.

    How does it benefit Israel? What does Israel gain from this? Improved safety for Israeli civilians? Economic improvements?

    Actually, I worked in that embassy. It is in Den Hague, which is where the parliament and all the other heads of government are. The constitutional capital of De Nederland is Amsterdam. Now, since you decided to throw this one out there where does Israel’s government locate itself?

    Israel gets a true ally someone that recognizes their true capital. I get it. Trump did it so you have to hate it.
