USA Recognition of Jerusalem as Capital of Israel IS IMPORTANT

We do have a right to be impatient about getting the Americans to move its embassy to Jerusalem, but it is a "sticky point" that they have yet to recognize the ancient holy city as Israel's capital. Of course, we'd like the whole package, special "same day" delivery. And we'd like it yesterday.

Too many people were overly optimistic since Trump's Jewish advisors aren't of the JStreet variety, but unfortunately the power of the State Department had been forgotten among the cheers and partying when Trump was elected President. And nobody could have predicted how strong the attacks would be on him for having the audacity to win. Never in the history of the USA was there such a fascist and antidemocratic movement as the "not my president." They deny the legitimacy of legal democratic rule.

Because of all the attacks and opposition, I doubt that Trump will ever get his platform activated. Remember that the "not my president" crowd is also strongly in favor of a new country called Palestine, sic, which would have its capital in Jerusalem.

Step one to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem would require recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and so far it hasn't happened. Gd willing it will. Is anyone taking bets? What are the odds?
