      Trump recognizes Jerusalem

      Trump has formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Good or bad?

      Jerusalem IS the capital if Israel, so of course, recognizing it as such is good, always good to recognize and acknowledge the truth, and it's the right thing to do.
      Don't know if it's a prophecy coming to pass.
      Could help something else along those lines, tho.

      And...nearer the end of what?
      I havent had breakfast yet.

      Purely symbolic....

      Politically, it achieves nothing since Jews don't vote for any Republican and Israel is already a solid friend of the USA.

      Trump made a lot of campaign promises (all candidates do) and people elected him in part because they felt Trump was a "straight shooter" who would actually DO what he promises (shock!). Well.... he is, and people seem shocked. It isn't like he's doing anything contrary to what he clearly stated he'd do in the campaign, it's just he's the first politician in American history to do that. Good or bad.

      That's a persuasive reply. Now I would like you to take the same approach to the use of the word Protestant in that other thread. You will find that the same reasoning applies in both cases.

      Protestantism is to the Body of Christ?

      I noted that earlier, so I just * the ******* asterisks rather than bothering the write out the ****** words that would ***** get asterisks. You Dutch aren't the only **** ones who use strong ****** language.

      Anyway, that was just a matter of time. Jerusalem's known as Israel's capital, and most people on the street would probably say Jerusalem rather than Tel Aviv if they were asked where the capital of Jerusalem was located. It's good, of course, that Trump was the president to finally do this, though. It kind of strengthens his credibility in the eyes of the world ( at least, I hope so).

      The downside is that Palestinians who have legitimately been mistreated in Israel have no hope for justice to prevail. Israel will keep taking their property, without consent, and giving it to immigrants. Rule of law is not being fairly distributed to all people, equally, in Israel. Will that improve now that the US formally recognizes Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel? I can't see it improving.
      While I recognize the Sovereign work of God in the events surrounding the nation of Israel, I also note that the present government of Israel is far, far away from knowing the God of Israel.

      They are also far from the boundries God established, not man. The Palestinians have no right to any of that land according to God. In many cases the land was legally bought which to my way of thinking is treating them right, beyond that they have no right to anything about that land.
