History is in the making today. We have the honor of witnessing a President who has tact yet has the guts to do what is RIGHT: firstly, to admit that Jerusalem is Israel’s eternal and undivided capital; and secondly, that nothing, not even factions in the Arab World who support Hamas, which by the way is a TERROR organization, can stop the moving of the Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. However, this move will have ramifications to the geopolitics of the region.
I applaud President Donald Trump for finally delivering his campaign promise: to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This move has more significance than anyone can imagine. Jerusalem was, and still is a hotly contested holy site between Jews and Arabs, with either side not backing down until they get the land. However, the truth has a way of revealing itself, and we know the truth is that: firstly, Jews aren’t conquerors or settlers, certainly not a monster like how the mainstream media paints them; and secondly, Palestinian isn’t even a word. Goodness, Palestine didn’t even exist thousands of years ago. Historical artifacts point to the existence of a powerful ancient Jewish kingdom during the time of King David and King Solomon 3,000 years ago. Therefore, Israel rightfully belongs to the Jews. However, the international community and the UN are not on the same footing as us. Just last week, 151 UN states vote to disavow Israeli ties to Jerusalem whereas only 6 stood with Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked the US for standing together with Israel and for its continued support for Israel. (Although he is a proponent of Zionism, he himself is embroiled in a mess of his own, scandals and whatnot, so the Knesset is divided among itself, causing the progress of Zionism to halt.)
Now, the tables have turned. USA, the UN’s biggest contributor, has reaffirmed its commitment to see through the promise of making the world see that Jerusalem remains the capital of Israel. The Arab League will definitely retaliate, even the leaders of all the 28 EU countries are already voicing their disapproval of Trump’s move. Although it seems this move is most unwise and seem like a bad idea to many, this will be the only way to ensure stability in the region. Ironic, but an almost foolproof way to bring peace.
Remember what appeasement brought when Chamberlain decided to appease Hitler in 1938? Did it turn out well? Certainly not! What did work though, was resolute leaders who want war to end with as little casualties as possible. This is what made the Allies victorious and if we extract this to today’s context, Trump is trying the achieve the same as what Franklin Roosevelt did in World War II.
In the event Trump heeds the venomous advice of his other allies, this will prove to be a major victory of the Boycott and Divest and state of Israel movement (BDS) who are committed to see the Arabs reign supreme and to kill Jews and want nothing but violence (although they claim not to want this)
I hope the US remains steadfast in its decision to start moving the embassy to Jerusalem. Long live Freedom and Liberty!
