    It's about time. I'm sick and tired of waiting for my country to do this. AND Trump needs to do at least one constructive thing during his tenure. It will be worth ALL of the fall out, because we will be validating the only western democracy in the Middle East.

    Trump is suppose to make an announcement momentarily, so it will be carried live on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News.

    I am not sure why the Pope states he wants to majntain the status quo. Where is the leadership?

    Jerusalem is the capital and holy city, and always has been. Radical Islam will want to kill us and the Pope no matter what he says or does.

    It is no time to be a shrinking violet, we are in dark times and we need leadership.

    Pope Francis is perhaps trying to keep violence to a minimum. It could well be that he fears that President Trump's move could cost lives.

    The past 20 or so years of not stating the obvious has not helped matters either. Nobody wants to do away with the peace process but every president has promised this for years and always backs down. I think it was time to have the courage to state what has always been since ancient times.

    Well said. We live in a time of unprecedented violence against both Jews and Christians. Appeasement will not work, it is considered weakness by Muslims in general.

    We are called to walk in faith and to drink from the cup that we are called to. Christ didn’t shrink from the horrors that awaited him.

    It is a ridiculous move by Trump. Sure, things haven't been great in Israel, but going against the international communities stance on Jerusalem will do absolutely nothing but cause much more trouble....and for what? So that Trump can be correct and "recognise a reality"? Great.

    Hamas has already stated that this is an act of war and has threatened another intifada as a result. Please explain to me what good this move, by Trump, has done?

    Good move. Israel agrees, the government of Israel operates from Jerusalem, not Tel Aviv. Makes sense.

    What makes sense in principle doesn't necessarily help a volatile situation.

    Bunch of cowards for wanting to work towards peace whilst your egotistical and, quite frankly, clueless president throw it all away to "Make America Great Again"?

    Kyrie Eleison, indeed. :crossrc:
