President Trump Speech on Israel and Jerusalem – 1:00pm Livestream

“My announcement today marks the beginning of a new approach to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. President Donald J. Trump”

♦RECOGNIZING JERUSALEM: President Donald J. Trump is following through on his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and has instructed the State Department to begin to relocate the U.S. Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Today, December 6, 2017, President Trump recognized Jerusalem, the ancient capital of the Jewish people, as the capital of the State of Israel.

In taking this action, President Trump fulfilled a major campaign promise of his and many previous Presidential candidates.

The Trump Administration is fully coordinated in supporting this historic action by the President, and has engaged broadly with both our Congressional and international partners on this issue.

President Trumps action enjoys broad, bipartisan support in Congress, including as expressed in the Jerusalem Recognition Act of 1995. This Act was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago.

President Trump has instructed the State Department to develop a plan to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Departments and Agencies have implemented a robust security plan to ensure the safety of our citizens and assets in the region.

STATUS OF JERUSALEM: President Trump recognizes that specific boundaries of sovereignty in Jerusalem is highly sensitive and subject to final status negotiations.

•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 Israels legislature, supreme court, President, and Prime Minister.
•President Trump recognizes that the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem are subject to final status negotiations between the parties.
•President Trump reaffirms United States support for the status quo at the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al Sharif.

COMMITTED TO THE PEACE PROCESS: President Trump is committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.

•President Trump remains committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians, and he is optimistic that peace can be achieved.
•Delaying the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not helped achieve peace over the past two decades.
•President Trump is prepared to support a two-state solution to the dispute between the Israelis and Palestinians, if agreed to by the parties.

    Only by taking Jerusalem off the table as a bone of contention, could the contention be pushed toward resolution. A divided or “international” Jerusalem would forever be nothing more than a trap and thorn in the side of Israel. On the other hand, Israel has been more than reasonably protective of Muslim interests in Temple Mount–much more so than muslims have been of Israel’s priming rights and interests in their Temple site. Now, there should be no further discussion on this topic. Paleoswinians, if they have any interest in peace and their own prosperity at all (doubtful), should get busy straightening out the territory they have been given. Israel and Egypt can make those areas productive. If Paleoswinians can’t, with the massive funds and other aid they receive from USA and EU, then they truly aren’t capable of or entitled to self-rule and should be placed under other, adjacent authorities’ control. They can have a “state,” if they can act like one.

  4. In his speech he circles back around to a common theme in many of his policies, each country is sovereign and therefore they will be the ones to work out what is best for them.

    I was almost choked up hearing the President’s speech today on Todd Starnes’ show on the way home (they replay it on my local station). My End-Times radar pinged big-time, too. I think it’s also worth noting that Israel will be 70 years old come spring (the age of a generation in the Bible, as well as the combination of 7 and 10, two significant numbers), and that it’s been 50 years since the 1967 war (every 50th year is the Year of Jubilee). Things are really coming together . . .

      That they are, indeed. The world is working against God and the man He has chosen for this time. For awhile they will think they are winning. They have already lost.
