    Armenian Catholicos rejects Jerusalem as Israeli capital

    The Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia Aram Irejects the U.S. move to recognize Jerusalemas the Israeli capital.

    U.S. president Donald Trump's move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital reversed decades of U.S. policy on Wednesday, December 6. The fate of Jerusalem is one of the thorniest issues between Israel and the Palestinians.

    Eight of the 15 nations who are currently members of the United Nations Security Council have called for the body to hold an urgent meeting on the U.S. decision by the end of the week.

    The Armenian Catholicos discussed the matter with Lebanese president Michel Aoun.

    According to the Patriarch, the U.S. approach is not consistent with international law, justice and historical truth.

    People outside Israel debating the location of Israel's capital would be like my neighbors deciding what color I should paint my guest bathroom...irrelevant.

    What is not consistent with international law, justice and historical truth is not letting a sovereign nation choose it's own capital. This capital has been the capital for 1000's of years, just because some racist and bigots don't want to recognize it makes no difference.

    Not having an opinion is totally fine and understandable if you are not into international politics. It's just that for the people who do care, mostly Jews, Muslims, and Fundamental Christians, it is making a HUGE statement about how The Trump administration views the Palestinian people's desire to have their own country and Israel's land right's in Jerusalem. Pretty much saying there is no solution other than Israel owns everything. Israel already has a capital (Tel Aviv) and this move will all but guarantee there will be people dying. For what?

    I agree with what took place because those who bless Israel will be blessed and those curse them will be cursed. But as far as the prophetic time line goes this action is like placing a dot on an I that was missing or a period at the end of a sentence that needed to be there. But the events themselves will unfold anyway.
