The US Embassy in Jerusalem: What’s the Big Deal? السفارة الأمريكية في القدس: ما الخطب في ذلك؟

For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore (Isa 2:3b-4).

US President Donald Trump has moved to fulfill his campaign pledge, one that others made before him and failed to fulfill—to declare Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel and move the US embassy there. The initiative did not begin with President Trump.

  1. Interesant e ca nimeni nu condamna organizatia statelor islamice care a recunoscut recent Ierusalimul ca si capitala a Palestinei. Daca memoria nu ma insala si Franta a numit iediat dupa declartatia lui Trump, Ierusalim capitala eterna a Palestinei. Imi place termenul “etern”, daca nu ma insala memoria. De bine de rau, Ierusalimul n-a apartinut niciodata Palestinei. In plus, plaestinienii nici macar nu vor sa recunoasca cum ca acolo ar fi existat Tempul evreu. De pe astfel de postitii nu exista sanse de pace. Americanii au investit mult in pace care pe cind sa se realizeze era boicotata de palestinieni. “Antisemitul” Trump si-a investit ginerele -altfel evreu_ sa incerce relansarea tratativelor. Eforturi zadarnice; furia lui Trump a fost atit de mare incit a amenintat sa inchida oficiul Palestinian din Washington. A renuntat. Trump -va place sau nu- e un om al faptelor si nu al vorbelor. Si ce-o sa ziceti daca, Israelul va trebui sa plateasca un pret pt recunoasterea Ierusalimului? Potrivit unos surse guvernamentale, acest pret pare a fi incetarea asezamintelor. De zeci de ani pacea “sta pe loc”; adica niciun progres. Decizia americana va da un stimul reluarii negocierlor..

    1. Interesant, ce strimb ne face sa gindim ideologie care ne controleaza gindirea, chiar si in cazul unui om inteligent ca dvs. 😦
      Dupa dvs. nu e vinovat cel care a luat prima decizie strimba, ci cei care reactioneaza; bine sau rau, asta e cu totul alta chestiune.

  2. Craciun Fericit! Eu sunt pro- israelian asa dupa cum orgnizatia statelor islamice este pro-Palestina.. iar ONU e anti semita, anti Israel si anti US. Dintre multele crime din lume, Coreea de nord, Venezuela, asupra propriei populatii, singurele tari condamnate si ridiculizate, in istoria recenta, la ONU sunt Israelul si USA. Decizia lui Trump s-ar putea sa scoata din gripare procesul de pace.
