Thank-you to President Trump!
What a wonderful day this is! After so many years, America is finally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The truth is that Jerusalem has always been the capital of the Jewish state. Every reasonable thinking individual knows this to be the case; it only took a man of courage to acknowledge the reality. Thank you, President Trump, for being that man of courage!
After all, United States law mandates that the American Embassy be moved to Jerusalem, just as US law states, under the 1987 Anti-Terrorism Act, that the ruling Palestinian faction Fatah (i.e. Mahmoud Abbas) is a terrorist organization and, as such, should not receive a dime of US funds.
Of course, not everyone is happy about this. This includes those who hate Jews and those who wish to continue to placate those who hate Jews, including a few in my own Jewish community whose knees knock whenever anything happens that is good for Israel. To them, I say, “Get over it.”
We keep hearing that this will do harm to the ‘peace process.’ Question: What peace process?! No one wants peace more than me, but you can never have peace, when one of the two sides is controlled by terrorist organizations. And yes, Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and others will use this as an excuse to create a new Intifada, a new violent uprising against Jews. They will always find an excuse. If it is not this, it will be something else.
So again, thank you, President Trump! I only pray that other nations follow your lead and do the same.
