Arutz Sheva: “Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that if elected president, he would recognize Jerusalem as the “undivided capital” of Israel, ending a long-standing US policy which has kept the American embassy in Tel Aviv.
The two met for over an hour in Trump’s private residence in Trump Tower in Manhattan on Sunday.
Among the topics of discussion were the Iran nuclear deal and the regional turmoil caused by the rise of the ISIS terror organization.”
Opinion: Great idea that would bring blessings to our nation, but there has been a long line of presidents from both parties who had promised they would move the embassy, including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
There is also no shortage of presidential hopefuls who said the same: Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz, but Donald Trump added that if elected this November, he would recognize the entire city of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.
With Trump the idea of a two-state solution within Israel would end, and with it, the ridiculous notion that Edomites would ever make peace with Jacob.
Until technological advances, like fracking, made the US energy independent, the need for Arab oil outweighed any move of the US embassy. Mr. Trump recognizes that is no longer the case.
There are two wars prophesied for the last days before the return of Jesus Christ. A US embassy in Jerusalem just might start one of them.
