Combining two contradictory fantasies in one message, President Donald Trump on Saturday told former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on Christian television channel Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) that he would not make his decision about moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem until his peace effort in the Middle East is realized.

“If we can make peace between the Palestinians and Israel, I think it’ll lead to ultimately peace in the Middle East, which has to happen,” Trump insisted, having noted that “I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem.”

The President conceded, however, that “everybody says it is not going to work.”

Wiser things have not been spoken by this president, especially in light of the fact that the Palestinian Authority insists on taking over eastern Jerusalem and making it its capital as part of a future peace deal – while Israel, at least officially, sees the Old City and the Temple Mount, at the heart of eastern Jerusalem, as belonging to the Jewish State eternally.

As to his time-table regarding this apparently self-contradictory plan, Huckabee noted that “Evangelicals are very interested in support for Israel. It’s something near and dear to your heart…. Ambassador Friedman indicated that the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem, do we have a time frame?”

To which Trump responded: “We’re going to make a decision in the not too distant future.”

The new TBN talk show “Huckabee” will showcase stories that reveal “what makes America so amazing.”

Well, get ready to be amazed…

  1. They’ve been telling the naive evangelicals and Jews for Jesus cultists this lie since the Reagan era, and the damn fools keep falling for it. This isn’t about us, or fulfilling any promise to the Jews. This is about making idiots believe they actually give a damn about them and Jesus, to keep them voting Republican. They want us to play our part in their sick, demented Apocalyptic wet dream, nothing more. See, in their minds if they move the embassy, it’ll get Jesus up off his fat lazy ass to “return”. At the cost of millions of Jewish lives. We don’t need their kind of Christian “love”.

  2. Unfortunately, Trump has not “drained the swamp” and has too many advisors that want to continue business as usual. He cannot achieve peace by failing to negotiate from a position of strength and resolve. The act of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem would sent a clear message that we are willing to stand on principles and take action as necessary.
