Donald Trump has opened up a Pandora’s Box by making the decision to accept Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel, when every other nation in the world sees Jerusalem as a city under possible future negotiation as the capitol of a Palestinian state, and instead accepts Tel Aviv as the effective Israeli capital.
What Trump has done is introduce holy war, anarchy and chaos into the Middle East cauldron, and it will make Israel a much more dangerous place for tourists from all nations, as well as citizens of Israel, already under constant threat and danger.
There will be no possibility of negotiations over a potential Palestinian state in the future, if Jerusalem is totally off the table for negotiation for Muslims to feel they have a place in its future.
It is not that this blogger, who is Jewish, wishes to see a divided Jerusalem, but unilaterally taking this action will NOT promote any possibility of peace negotiations in the future.
Muslim terrorism will grow by leaps and bounds with this decision, and many Jews and Israelis agree that it is primarily designed to promote Benjamin Netanyahu’s right wing political agenda, and also to keep the evangelical Christian base in America behind Donald Trump.
With every nation deploring the development, Donald Trump will not benefit from his action, and it insures no chance of peace at any point in the future, and lots of death and destruction, and no positive side to the situation.
