    Something to be said about principles.
    given that Israel always has the US sucking its cock, how exactly will it strengthen relations?

    and yeah, the evangelical love-in with the Jews is weird. maybe it's cause the Arabs (Muslims) hate the Jews? who knows.
    No, it is more esoteric than that.

    For evangelicals, Jesus will only return to Earth again if Israel exists. Deep down, evangelicals don't care about jews, hell they wouldn't let them in their clubs etc, but the state of Israel has to exist for Jesus to rule the Earth again. As a result, any support for Israel is good.

    Good thing they have 2.
    the country has been recognized for years, this is moving an embassy to a city most of the world acknowledges is disputed territory.

    Hi Johnny.

    Israel is recognized by most of the world. Moving the embassy does not change that recognition.

    What you probably meant to say was recognizing their chosen capital.

    hilarious part is that while he spoke the words about jerusalem, the thing he just signed was actually another 6 month waiver to keep the embassy in tel aviv.

    so this again is all just theatre.

    Shit was pretty low during the obama netanyahu period.

    So yes, things always have room for improvement.

    part of that was because Netanyahu is a giant dickwad. western leaders should not need to pander to him...

    The territory has been disputed for what, 50 years?

    Let's face facts, if the Palestians wanted a peace deal with Israel that respected both sides that deal would be done by now.

    This teaches a valueble lesson. Negotiate in good faith in a timely manner or shit is only going to get worse.

    Is he a giant dickwad? Sure.

    Still less of a dickward that anybody else in the region. Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, turkey, Iran, all have/had bigger dickwad leaders and governments.

    To single out netanyahu for being a dickwad is dumb.

    the truth is that everybody knows that this will likely led to death and violence from the other side, which will then let trump be even more violent to them.

    If the Arab world has the irrational response of death and violence to a technicality that's on them.

    The U.S. Embassy in Amman has temporarily suspended routine public services. U.S. government personnel and their family members in Jordan are limiting public movements, including an instruction for children not to attend school on December 7, 2017.
