The Embassy Move

Michael Lumish

If Trump has any intention of actually moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem we should know in about three weeks when he arrives in Israel. Given that the 50th anniversary of the 6 Day War is fast approaching if he is going to announce the relocation he will likely do so during his upcoming visit.

It's my bet that if he does not announce then that he probably never will.

We shall see.


  1. How Shabbat-desecration harms
    Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem:

  2. How intermarriage harms
    Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel

  3. We shall see. In the meantime the rest of the world recognizes Israeli sovereignty in no part of the city, but wants a Palestinian (Arab) capital in "East Jerusalem." The Arabs, i.e., the voila! Palestinians want the whole damn thing and speak openly about the entire city belonging to the voila! Palestinians.

  4. I rather like the idea of escalation this way. Push more chips into the pot and drive the Jew haters insane.

  5. I am thinking that he is likely to make the move now. He's gone too far out on this limb to back away completely.

    If he does not move the embassy now, he will lose a lot of credibility with many who believed his presidency would be different. However, I disagree with the idea that if he does not move it now, he is not going to move it.
