Trump isn't responsible for starting it - but he's responsible for throwing gasoline on the existing fire.
That is just another way of allowing terrorists to blame their own actions on other people.

Not really. If it was reasonable to expect that by doing this he could inflame tensions that already existed, and he does it anyway (because he really doesn't care what happens, but really any reason like thinking it was a sound move even though everyone told him it wasn't) isn't he at least partly to blame?

To take another example, suppose Trump gives the order for a full scale invasion of North Korea to completely overtake the country and depose the existing government. If during the pandemonium that follows North Korea fires missiles that level Seoul and Tokyo, does Trump really walk away with clean hands bearing no responsibility for the death of millions of people?

I swear it seems like Trump and his people want to start wars.
So you hate the truth. Jerusalem has always been the Capital of Israel in the eyes of the jews. The Palestinians have no claim on it in fact they should stop being terrorists and start being a part of Israel with peace
