President Donald Trump has taken a lot of crap from the alt-let for his call to move the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Thankfully he’s stuck with the decision.
Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s top diplomat made a very clear statement about the decision, seeing it as a threat to peace in the Middle East: “We believe that any action that would undermine these efforts must absolutely be avoided,” she said. “A way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as a future capital of both states.”
And that’s not… our own mainstream media has been all over it. It’s truly pathetic.
In regards to the move, President Trump said: “Today we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” Mr. Trump said from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.”
And many outlets have shared so-called “mix reviews” from the Jewish community about the news. It’s big and I guess “controversial” to some, to say the least.
Still.. what do the people of Israel think? Well… Roberto Tiso posted a video on his Facebook page with shows the people celebrating adding “Jerusalem festive for recognition as capital of Israel from USA (Ha Erzot Ha Berit).!!!!”
Despite the media’s leftist narrative of bashing Israel, this video shows just how happy many Israelis were with Trump’s decision.
Here are some reactions from world leaders:
This ‘could fuel terrorism,’ says Jordan’s King Abdullah
Jordan’s King Abdullah told the American president his decision would have “dangerous repercussions on the stability and security of the region,” according to a palace statement.
“There is no alternative to a two-state solution, and Jerusalem is key to any peace agreement,” Abdullah later said from Turkish capital Ankara. Jordan is home to more than 2 million Palestinian refugees.
Jerusalem decision ‘undermines chances for peace,’ says Egypt’s Sisi
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi stressed “the necessity of not complicating the state of the region by taking measures that would undermine the chances for peace in the Middle East.”
The country of 95 million is one of only three Arab League states recognizing Israel’s right to exist as a state.
Israel’s Netanyahu: ‘Forever grateful’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly praised the Trump administration’s move.
“Thank you President Trump for today’s historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jewish people and the Jewish state will be forever grateful,” Netanyahu said.
The recognition, he added, “reflects the president’s commitment to an ancient but enduring truth, to fulfilling his promises and to advancing peace.”
“There is no peace that doesn’t include Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
