Newsflash: Jerusalem Not on Fire!

Newsflash for journalists: There's nothing new on the Palestinian street. Threats of violence and walking out of any "peace process" is old, old news. Jerusalem is not on fire. Jerusalem is tense, and has long been so, because the Palestinians have not yet managed to come to terms with Israel's right to exist. That is the real story.

The Obvious

The decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital should be perceived as a reaffirmation of the victory of Chanukah, which, after all, celebrated the liberation by Jews from the Hellenists of the city of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple that radical Arabs and haters of Israel today (including Arafat and his followers, and UNESCO and their fellow travelers) deny ever had any connection to the Jewish people.

Why Trump Is Right in Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

If there is any change to the status quo, let the blame lie at the hands of President Obama for his cowardly decision to wait until he was a lame-duck president to get even with PM Netanyahu. Pres. Trump deserves praise for restoring balance in negotiations with Israel and the Palestinians.

Yerushalayim- Jerusalem

Quotes from various sources; some Jewish and some Catholic with regard to Yerushalayim.

President Trump, THANK YOU!

Today all those who care about the state of Israel need to stand up and say “Thank You President Trump.”
