(TeaParty.org) – When Donald Trump was running his campaign for president, he made a bold promise that no president had ever made before him – along with building a border wall and repealing the disastrous Affordable Care Act, he vowed to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
One year later, the president has done just that. Now the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as not only the cultural capital of Israel, but also its seat of governance. Liberals, however, are going absolutely ballistic over it – they think Trump just signed a declaration of war with the entire Middle East, Muslim countries that are murderously antagonistic of the Jewish state.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas blasted the president’s move as “destruction of all the efforts to achieve peace,” according to the LA Times. Far from it – at a prestigious dinner held on the eve of his inauguration, Trump expressed confidence in his son-in-law Jared Kushner that he would be able to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
Trump has cast a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians as the “ultimate deal.” In fact, he already has this ultimate deal planned that will bring stability to the entire Middle East, reports Independent. Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem is part of that plan.
There’s just one thing: Kushner says he can’t reveal it yet.
“If we’re going to try to create more stability in the region as a whole, you have to solve this issue,” Kushner recently said at the Brookings Institution’s Saban Forum. According to Kushner, the conflict between Israel and Palestine is at the center of all the chaos in the Middle East. This problem has to be solved.
In November, Trump and Kushner sat down together and began to draw out a blueprint to a peace treaty that will end the decades-old conflict, reported by the New York Times.
“We have spent a lot of time listening to and engaging with the Israelis, Palestinians and key regional leaders over the past few months to help reach an enduring peace deal,” said Jason D. Greenblatt, the president’s chief negotiator. “We are not going to put an artificial timeline on the development or presentation of any specific ideas and will also never impose a deal. Our goal is to facilitate, not dictate, a lasting peace agreement to improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians and security across the region.”
After the president made the embassy’s move to Jerusalem, the White House issued a statement: “President Trump recognizes that the status of Jerusalem is a highly-sensitive issue, but he does not think the peace process is aided by ignoring the simple truth that Jerusalem is home to Israel’s legislature, supreme court, president, and prime minister.”
“This decision is not intended in any way to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement,” said Trump on CNN. “We want an agreement that is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians. The United States remains deeply committed to facilitating a peace agreement that is acceptable to both sides.”
The U.S. will continue to respect the current policies regarding the Temple Mount, and acknowledges the fact that while Jerusalem has been declared the capital, political boundaries have yet to be finalized. There is little reason yet for global leaders to be up-in-arms over this.
