Jerusalem the Eternal Undivided Capital of the Jewish State

President Trump in Jerusalem, at the Kotel, the Western Wall, remnant of the Second Temple which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 ACE.

There is a great deal of hand wringing now that President Trump is officially recognizing reality: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and that the U.S. embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Jew-hating Arabs warn that this recognition will cause violence.

The gutless EU warns that this move will derail the so-called peace process.

The fact is, the Arabs are always threatening violence if they don’t get what they want. Like children they pull temper tantrums in order to intimidate.

However, unlike children, Arabs kill.

Thus, Israel and the rest of the world will probably have to endure and overcome an initial spate of violence. But this is necessary, because like a good parent who sets boundaries for their bratty children, America is putting the Arabs on notice that their barbarism will no longer be allowed to set the agenda. By recognizing reality, President Trump is bringing forth a level of political maturity that has been absent from Middle Eastern policy for decades.

In a sense we can thank the Israel-hating Barack Obama for this new reality. By enabling the genocidal-yearning Iranians he forced Saudi Arabia to switch allegiances. The Saudis, the Egyptians, and every Sunni regime is terrified of Iranian hegemony, hence they must partner with the only reliable government that can be an effective counterweight to the mad mullahs of Iran. And that government is Israel. War makes for unlikely alliances.

As for the peace process. There is no such thing. On one side we have Israel who seeks to live in peace with her neighbors. On the other side we have the Arabs who seek to destroy the Jewish state.

The fact is that Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish state for over 3,000 years. King David made Jerusalem his capital city and every Jewish commonwealth has done the same. Jerusalem was the site of the two Jewish Temples because Judaism confers a unique holiness on Jerusalem that is unique in the annals of religion.

At the end of the Passover seder we exclaim: “Next Year in Jerusalem.”

This is not just a yearning of the Jewish soul, but a recognition that living a Jewish life is incomplete if not lived in the holy city of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish state.

God bless President Trump.

    I am much pleased with this — I was afraid President Trump was getting all wobbly on this, but apparently he was taking his time arranging things in the background.

    The only thing he could have done better would have been to fly Air Force One directly to Jerusalem, get off the plane, and make the announcement on the tarmac.

    He should also set a deadline for having the official Embassy in place so the State Department mafia doesn’t slow roll the whole thing with a mass of ever-changing requirements, hoping Biden/Bernie/Hillary/Fauxcohantas wins in 2020.

    The lefties who called Trump a Nazi have not even paused before screaming about Jerusalem.

    Being of the left means you never have to make sense.

    Wish you were wrong about an initial spate of violence. It would be a welcome shock if violence was not their response.

    Wow, that’s a first for me on the moderation. Perhaps with the subject it’s understandable.

      I’m not sure what you mean. Palestinian politicians (such as the Expired President Abbas) have never done any talking, not honest talking that is. They have about 50 years of experience with demanding, and having their demands supported by countries other than Israel. They are so used to this that they are quite shocked at being told “NO” for the first time in ages. And as Robert points out, their response is basically a temper tantrum (“days of rage”).
      It would be good if the USA stopped all subsidies of that outfit, rather than just the limited reductions threatened by the Taylor Force act.

        No pkoning, not the Palestinians, the West, but it’s the Palestinians that need to realize that.

    Indeed.
    Hodu Hashem Ki Tov!
    Doing the Right Thing may not always be the most politic thing to do….
    But recognizing Reality is always, always better than living in a False Fantasy of self indulgence!
    Life is Beautiful All the Time!
