    WASHINGTON — President Trump plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the American Embassy there, upending nearly seven decades of American foreign policy and potentially destroying his efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

    Mr. Trump’s decision, a high-risk foray into the thicket of the Middle East, was driven not by diplomatic calculations but by a campaign promise. He appealed to evangelicals and ardently pro-Israel American Jews in 2016 by vowing to move the embassy, and advisers said on Tuesday he was determined to make good on his word.

    But the president, faced with a deadline of this past Monday to make that decision, still plans to sign a national security waiver to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv for an additional six months, even as he set in motion a plan to move it to Jerusalem. Officials said the process would take several years.

    More significantly, Mr. Trump is to announce his formal recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital in a formal speech at the White House on Wednesday, when he will become the first American president to take that step since the founding of Israel in 1948.

    A lot of the threads in this forum belong in other categories....but they still end up here. I guess it is just how this group works....:)

    At least the status of Jerusalem has more something to do with Judaism and by extension Messianic Judaism....

    Shalom!

    You are entitled to your feelings, however this is an subject of interest to Messianics, both Jew and Gentile. :)

    I'm sorry but guests to the Messianic Judaism forum don't get to determine what is discussed in here.

    The Palestinian Arabs want East Jerusalem for their capital, which Israel captured in 1967.

    The Palestinian Arabs want all of Israel, and they're willing
    to take it piece by little piece. But they will accept nothing
    less until they are forced to do so.

    Catalyst but needed to be done. US promised to do this years and years ago and now is going to fulfill this obligation.
