    It's long past time the USA recognizes the fact that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel! It's no surprise that the enemies of Israel would try to prevent this.

    Don't be naive there are some Republicans that would like to see him impeached and Pence take the office.

    A few, probably. None of them are offering impeachment articles on the floor of the House of Representatives, though.

    Impeachment is a pipe dream at this point. It will not happen,
    and those trying to push it forward are only going to make fools
    of themselves in front of everyone. I look forward to hearing calls
    for them to resign in disgrace before this ends.

    And who wants to bet on whether or not the courts try to step
    in and block Trump from moving our embassy or acknowledging
    Jerusalem as capital of Israel?

    They wouldn't dare. If they did they would be condemned and run out of office in their next election.

    Does anyone really care whether our embassy is in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem?

    All I can say is, Trump had better follow through on this. Not only am I sick and tired of waiting for the US to do this, but it's about time for Trump to accomplish something positive.

    I don't think they will resign in disgrace. They are Democrats, and Democrats elected them. But what they are doing is wasting time. This will not happen with Republican majorities in the House and Senate. It's like they borrowed a page from the House Republicans, who voted over and over to repeal Obama care while Obama was still President and they knew he would veto it.

    The idea of moving the embassy has apparently already been shelved, and it would be a dangerous move for our personnel. As for declaring Jerusalem the capitol, I have a hunch that that was a trial balloon and it wont actually happen.

    Only most of the world, who either want the Jews
    gone, or the land divided so they have no security.
    The last thing they want is for any country to show
    the world that Israel has every right to all of their
    land, from Egypt to Lebanon.

    The world already knows that the US stands with Israel. You think that moving our embassy is making a theological statement and that will make a big difference in what way?

    And all the way east to Iraq ...

    Josh 1.1 Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ servant, saying, 2 “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. 3 Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory.

    Yes, it will make a difference and even the MSM knows it.
    Right now, the UN thinks it can tell Israel what to do within
    its own borders, and nobody has checked them on it. Israel
    won't raise a big stink because every country around it is
    ready to attack them for any perceived reason.

    "If the United States moved the embassy to Jerusalem, it would mean that the US effectively recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. That would overturn 70 years of international consensus, and, many argue, would effectively signal the end of moves to achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians."

    For the moment, east to Jordan would be good. There is no
    legal reason for Israel to give away the 'disputed' territories.
    The Arabs never owned it, and no sane nation gives land to
    terrorists and enemies who want to kill them.

    This is the main reason that the world would care, imo.
