    They aren't there to help a tourist thru an airport.
    Psst! We don't always put them in capital cities. Just as other countries don't always put there embassies in Washington D.C.

    Just so you know.

    It's an answer to your question and you don't like the answer. That's too bad. I'm sorry that you do not feel we should move our embassy in Israel. You only have two reasons why we should not move it, (1) Your hatred toward Trump and his accomplishing it. (2) Your cowering in fear at what terrorists might do. Which is exactly the purpose of terrorism.

    Interesting. I must have touched a nerve. My statement is true. YOU are on the same side as the muslim terrorists that oppose Israel. Those same people who feel Israel has no right to exist.

So what? The question is not whether it does any such thing, but rather how it is advantageous to do so.
    Yes, it is an answer to the question but it is not the answer that you want. Do you think that the United States should only do things that provide our country with a clear advantage? Screw Israel??? How is this move dangerous? You stated it was just a change of address, nothing more.

    Wait... tell me. Tell me why you think I side with terrorists who want the destruction of Israel?
    Hold on, I didn't tell any lie. You are clearly on the same side as the muslim terrorists who do not want the embassy in Israel moved to the capital. This is because they do not believe that Israel has a right to exist. It is your anti-Trump at any cost that is wrong with this country. You clearly side with those terrorists over the president.

    Israel says their capital is Jerusalem. We claim to recognize that to be the capital but over the decades we have refused to move our embassy to the capital. By moving our embassy, we have told the world that we recognize Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Some say that this takes a bargaining chip off the table. It may. It clearly states that Jerusalem, in the opinion of the United States is the capital of Israel.

    As ususal, you can't back up your empty headed posts. That's not a symptom of you being exposed long ago as party-over-country, that's a whole other defect in your contribution here.

    You like to use words like "clearly" as you describe the fantasies you invent in your head to justify the lies you try to pass off here. The funny part is that you couldn't back up your baseless claim again and everyone can see it.
    Thanks from TennesseeRain and Ian Jeffrey

    Do you oppose the embassy being moved to Jerusalem? Israel says that Jerusalem is their capital. Why should the US embassy be in Tel Aviv? That's not the center of government. An embassy is a permanent diplomatic mission. It is headed by an ambassador, who is a presidential appointee. Establishing an embassy acknowledges diplomatic ties between two nations. Embassies handle all the major diplomatic functions. A consulate is run by a consul. A consul deals with minor diplomatic issues such as trade issues, helping US citizens with passport issues, and expatriate services.

    But you keep on your path to try and make this seem like someone just moved a mailbox. Tell me, if it was such a simple thing to do, why didn't President Obama do it? Could it be because he detested Israel and did not believe that they were the rightful holders of that land? Why is it that so many Jewish people are Democrats? What have the Democrats done for Israel recently? Nothing.
    We all know that if Obama had done precisely what trump just did you would come up with a bunch of reasons why it was a stupid thing to do, and you would be right.
    Thanks from Dragonfly5
