    • It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife; but every fool will be quarreling.

Jerusalem IS the capital of Israel. Israel's government, parliament and prime minister are ALL based in Jerusalem. So to deny it is the capital is to ignore reality, but, we know that for some people feelings matter more than facts, so they seek to deny reality and get mad and angry when faced with it. Rather than accepting truth, they prefer to live a lie. Imagine, if you will, the world denied Washington D.C. was our capital, just because that notion offended them, we would rightly say they were not only wrong, but fools and deniers of reality.

By 1948, the Arabs had still not yet discovered their ancient nation of Falastin. When they were offered half of Palestine west of the Jordan River for a state, the offer was violently rejected. Six Arab states launched a war of annihilation against the nascent State of Israel. Their purpose was not to establish an independent Falastin. Their aim was to partition western Palestine amongst themselves.

They did not succeed in killing Israel, but Trans-Jordan succeeded in taking Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem, killing or driving out all the Jews who had lived in those places, and banning Jews of all nations from Jewish holy places. Egypt succeeded in taking the Gaza Strip. These two Arab states held these lands until 1967. Then they launched another war of annihilation against Israel, and in consequence lost the lands they had taken by war in 1948. During those 19 years, 1948-1967, Jordan and Egypt never offered to surrendar those lands to make up an independent state of Falastin. The "Palestinians" never sought it. Nobody in the world ever suggested it,much less demanded it.

Finally, in 1964, the Palestine Liberation Movement was founded. Ahmed Shukairy, who less than 10 years earlier had denied the existence of Palestine, was its first chairman. Its charter proclaimed its sole purpose to be the destruction of Israel. To that end it helped to precipitate the Arab attack on Israel in 1967.

The outcome of that attack then inspired an alteration in public rhetoric. As propaganda, it sounds better to speak of the liberation of Falastin than of the destruction of Israel. Much of the world, governments and media and public opinion, accept virtually without question of serious analysis the new-sprung myth of an Arab nation of Falastin, whose territory is unlawfully occupied by the Jews.

Since the end of World War I, the Arabs of the Middle East and North Africa have been given independent states in 99.5 percent of the land they claimed. Lord Balfour once expressed his hope that when the Arabs had been given so much, they would "not begrudge" the Jews the "little notch" promised to them

When someone denies Israel's capital is Jerusalem, ask them where Britain's capital is, ask them where it's parliament is located and then ask them where it's prime minister is located; then ask them the same questions about Israel, and ask why it is different.

Even setting aside that God promised this land to his people in the Bible.  All you need to do is watch the corporate media news.  They're panties are all in a wad.  That is a the litmus test.  You know Trump done the right thing if by nothing more than that.

Trump has to authorize a six-month delay as spelled out in the Jerusalem Embassy Act that Congress passed overwhelmingly in 1995 when Bill Clinton was in the White House.

So true... for years presidents have signed waivers to postpone the move since congress acknowledged back in 1995 what Trump acknowledges today.

Quote
Clinton signed off on a waiver, which allows the President to delay the move for six months if "such suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States." The delay was used repeatedly by Clinton as well as former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
