President Trump Historic Speech on Jerusalem – Video and Transcript…

Video and Transcript below of President Trump’s historic speech on Jerusalem.

.

[TRANSCRIPT] THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. When I came into office, I promised to look at the worlds challenges with open eyes and very fresh thinking. We cannot solve our problems by making the same failed assumptions and repeating the same failed strategies of the past. Old challenges demand new approaches.

My announcement today marks the beginning of a new approach to conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

In 1995, Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize that that city — and so importantly — is Israels capital. This act passed Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago.

Yet, for over 20 years, every previous American president has exercised the laws waiver, refusing to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem or to recognize Jerusalem as Israels capital city.

Presidents issued these waivers under the belief that delaying the recognition of Jerusalem would advance the cause of peace. Some say they lacked courage, but they made their best judgments based on facts as they understood them at the time. Nevertheless, the record is in. After more than two decades of waivers, we are no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result.

Therefore, I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering.

I’ve judged this course of action to be in the best interests of the United States of America and the pursuit of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. This is a long-overdue step to advance the peace process and to work towards a lasting agreement.

Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace.

It was 70 years ago that the United States, under President Truman, recognized the State of Israel. Ever since then, Israel has made its capital in the city of Jerusalem — the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times. Today, Jerusalem is the seat of the modern Israeli government. It is the home of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as well as the Israeli Supreme Court. It is the location of the official residence of the Prime Minister and the President. It is the headquarters of many government ministries.

For decades, visiting American presidents, secretaries of state, and military leaders have met their Israeli counterparts in Jerusalem, as I did on my trip to Israel earlier this year.

Jerusalem is not just the heart of three great religions, but it is now also the heart of one of the most successful democracies in the world. Over the past seven decades, the Israeli people have built a country where Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and people of all faiths are free to live and worship according to their conscience and according to their beliefs.

Jerusalem is today, and must remain, a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross, and where Muslims worship at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

However, through all of these years, presidents representing the United States have declined to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israels capital. In fact, we have declined to acknowledge any Israeli capital at all.

But today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israels capital. This is nothing more, or less, than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.

That is why, consistent with the Jerusalem Embassy Act, I am also directing the State Department to begin preparation to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This will immediately begin the process of hiring architects, engineers, and planners, so that a new embassy, when completed, will be a magnificent tribute to peace.

In making these announcements, I also want to make one point very clear: This decision is not intended, in any way, to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement. We want an agreement that is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians. We are not taking a position of any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, or the resolution of contested borders. Those questions are up to the parties involved.

The United States remains deeply committed to helping facilitate a peace agreement that is acceptable to both sides. I intend to do everything in my power to help forge such an agreement. Without question, Jerusalem is one of the most sensitive issues in those talks. The United States would support a two-state solution if agreed to by both sides.

In the meantime, I call on all parties to maintain the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites, including the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif.

Above all, our greatest hope is for peace, the universal yearning in every human soul. With todays action, I reaffirm my administrations longstanding commitment to a future of peace and security for the region.

There will, of course, be disagreement and dissent regarding this announcement. But we are confident that ultimately, as we work through these disagreements, we will arrive at a peace and a place far greater in understanding and cooperation.

This sacred city should call forth the best in humanity, lifting our sights to what it is possible; not pulling us back and down to the old fights that have become so totally predictable. Peace is never beyond the grasp of those willing to reach.

So today, we call for calm, for moderation, and for the voices of tolerance to prevail over the purveyors of hate. Our children should inherit our love, not our conflicts.

I repeat the message I delivered at the historic and extraordinary summit in Saudi Arabia earlier this year: The Middle East is a region rich with culture, spirit, and history. Its people are brilliant, proud, and diverse, vibrant and strong. But the incredible future awaiting this region is held at bay by bloodshed, ignorance, and terror.

Vice President Pence will travel to the region in the coming days to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations.

It is time for the many who desire peace to expel the extremists from their midst. It is time for all civilized nations, and people, to respond to disagreement with reasoned debate – not violence.

And it is time for young and moderate voices all across the Middle East to claim for themselves a bright and beautiful future.

So today, let us rededicate ourselves to a path of mutual understanding and respect. Let us rethink old assumptions and open our hearts and minds to possible and possibilities. And finally, I ask the leaders of the region — political and religious; Israeli and Palestinian; Jewish and Christian and Muslim — to join us in the noble quest for lasting peace.

Thank you. God bless you. God bless Israel. God bless the Palestinians. And God bless the United States. Thank you very much. Thank you.

(The proclamation is signed.)

I see our President as putting our planet back in balance wherever and however it can be done. Peace on Earth in action.

      I posted this excerpt yesterday regarding USA having an agreement to a land in J’lem of the embassy. I have no reason to doubt the veracity of the article, yet it’s odd we never hear about this.

      “In the last days of the Reagan presidency, on January 18, 1989, US ambassador to Israel William Brown and Israel Lands Authority deputy director Moshe Gatt signed an agreement according to which a plot of land in Jerusalem would be leased from Israel to the US for 99 years, for $1 per year.

      “The fifteen-page ‘Land Lease and Purchase Agreement’ referred only to ‘the Jerusalem property,’ but almost immediately reports surfaced — later confirmed — that the land in question was located in what was known as the Allenby Barracks, the site of the British army’s Jerusalem garrison during the Mandate,” Palestinian scholar Walid Khalidi wrote in a 2000 article for the Journal of Palestine Studies.”

    There are a lot of dead American military personnel’s souls who are rejoicing as so many injured for life American service people, not to mention Jewish soldiers and even Palestinian fighters who have yearned for peace over the past many decades of hostilities.

    Now we will see who really wants peace…my guess is few Palestinians for they have been indoctrinated ever since Israel came into modern existence to hate such a reality, even after losing so many fights.

    All one needs is to look at both societies to note the price of hatred.

    History of the name and place: Jerusalem

    There is no town as Biblical as Jerusalem, but it was neither built nor named by the Israelites. Remnants of a Canaanite town called Salem date back to the early bronze age, and the first Biblical mention of this place is in Genesis 14:18, where Abraham and Melchizedek meet.

    The name Jerusalem occurs first in Joshua 10:1 and the city of Jerusalem was conquered, sacked and apparently abandoned by Israel (Judges 1:8). Still, it remained occupied by Jebusites and it was originally located in the territory of not Judah but Benjamin (Judges 1:21). Four hundred years later David conquered Jerusalem from the Jebusites, annexed it and made it his capital (2 Samuel 5:6).

    • The first mention in the Old Testament of Jerusalem as the “City of David” is found in 2 Samuel 5:7: “David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David.” In this account, David had been made king of the entire nation of Israel, and he led his army to take the city of Jerusalem from the Jebusites (verse 6). Upon winning this city, David “took up residence in the fortress and called it the City of David. He built up the area around it, from the terraces inward. And he became more and more powerful, because the Lord God Almighty was with him” (2 Samuel 5:9–10).

      And that is the truth. Politicians have mastered the art of using thousands of words and saying actually nothing.

It’s plain fantastic to have someone leading us who thinks like a real person and has integrity, intelligence and sense and does what he says he will. Trust never enters my mind when thinking of politicians normally, but with this man it is coming into my mind often these days. MAGA.

        Nehemiah 2:17-20:17 Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.

        18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.

        19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?

        20 Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.

      I support this move by Trump from a art of the deal standpoint, however i do not support this on the basis that Israel, in its current form (Israel of today does not equal Israel of the bible) is a legitimate nation, rather its one built on a pretext of lies, deceit and manipulation.

      On 9.17.2017 the below entitled article “U.S. Troops Deployed To Israel Get a New Barracks” was released.

      To me it’s no coincidence that this little discussed event has placed our 40 soldiers in Israel prior to today’s announcement.

      “A small group of U.S. troops carrying out a missile-defense mission in Israel is taking up residence inside a new barracks building on an Israeli base in an effort to improve living conditions for troops.
      The barracks, which officially opened during a ceremony Monday, will house about 40 soldiers, U.S. European Command said Tuesday.

      Various media accounts described the facility as a new, first-of-its-kind U.S. military “base” in Israel, but EUCOM said that was a mischaracterization of the site, which provides troops with a place to sleep, a dining facility and recreation area.”

    Alright, so this is all great and I am very happy that President Trump has done this for Israel. And I am also very impressed by President Trump’s cabinet meeting speech about the economy and Sec State T-Rex’s talk in Geneva, but the whole impeachment procedural vote bothers me. Yes, the Democrats failed miserably and did not move the procedural vote to the floor, but he fact that they actually tried worries me somewhat.

    The Democrats are clearly delusional and desperate, and now with President Trump rolling full speed ahead, they are going to pull out all stops. So my question for my fellow Treepers here is, how far will they go? Not just more screaming and harping about impeachment and all that nonsense, but everything else? Clearly, President Trump, love him or hate him, is NOT a bad leader. He is doing everything right. And he isn’t even a hard-liner conservative! He is doing great things for everyone! But the libs are foaming at the mouth now!

    Take the sexual harassment claims flying left and right: One Democrat from the House has already resigned because of those, and soon likely a Democrat Senator. But the liberals are grinding into if full steam ahead… even though it is smashing their own Democrats to pieces. Could there be something there at the end of that terrible rainbow?

    And what about the Muh-Russian conspiracy crap: Muller is pulling out all the punches now with goofy charges that hilariously do not point to President Trump at all. But the liberal are grinding full steam ahead… even though they have come up with nothing so far. But could there be something there, as well?

      Ok, data point: Worked all day interacting with any number of Moslems here and nary a word about US embassy to Jerusalem. Mind you, these are men and women I have been spending a lot of time in the last two and a half years so we talk about family and some politics and faith ( they all know I am Catholic and attend Mass weekly). Just a simple observation from this side of the world.

    Now the backlash. Rioting, attacks and protests at Gaza/Isreali border (IDF there violence reported), Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon (IDF went to the border yesterday), Jerusalem and US embassy in Egypt warned to up security and expect violence (Al-Sisi condemns the move). So much hatred,

  33. I just listened to Trump’s speech and then read a Jerusalem Post commentary from a couple days ago about the Palestinians political offensive against the unannounced Saudi peace plan. Then I put 2+2 together, based upon what I have learned from Sundance about Trump’s strategy.

    The timing of today’s announcement is not an accident. It is Trump’s response to the Palestinians campaigning against the Saudi peace plan. They thought they would win concessions. But that’s not how it works with Trump. Instead they pay a price.

      The Palestinians were burning SA and US flags at the border riots happening now and the IDF is there as the riots are violent. SA and Israel are on the same page when it comes to Iran and its proxies and Israel has carried out airstrikes on Iranian military camps in Syria this week and took out a chemical weapons research facility. Reports are that war will break out in the coming weeks.

    Why are American Evangelicals and posters on this site destroying the Christians in the Middle East? The Mayor of Bethlehem is a Christian.

    The reaffirmation by the Senate was 6 months ago as Trump said. Unanimous, 90-0 in favor. That includes Diane Feinstein whose letter critizing Trump’s decision was posted by Sundance in another thread. And she voted yea in the original passing in 1995 as well!

    The recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital is great indeed. However, the POTUs did not say an “undivided” Jerusalem. So basically its business as usual.

    Sorry folks. I love Conservative Treehouse, but I think all this pro-Israeli stuff is just too much. Why is CTH promoting this horrible Deep State cause? I just can’t agree about Jerusalem. A devastating decision by Trump, who I usually support by the way. But no, I’m not going to be smiley and happy face just for the sake of this comment section.

    Hey, guys, some are saying Trump was slurring words near the end of the speech. I watched those last few minutes. It looked like his upper teeth were giving him a bad time. Does he wear dentures? I do not think he was slurring words. The words were pronounced correctly and they were not slurred. Sometimes my mouth gets so dry, rub my tongue over my upper teeth to get some moisture. Anyone notice? I didn’t until some idiots brought it up! Like McNasty’s former campaign manager…Schmidt. Never Trumper.
