The nation of Israel has endured a constant onslaught since it was created by a UN resolution in 1948. Their capital is Jerusalem and has been for years, they are to my knowledge the only nation that has had their selected capital not recognized by other nations. Israel is the ONLY Jewish state in the world, and why can’t they set there own rules for who is a citizen? I find the hypocrisy of the world toward Israel and their ability to make normal decisions about their own sovereignty is reprehensible and needs to change, Trump did change something, he recognized Israel’s right to select it’s own capital. The two state solution will never work until the Palestinians are willing to recognize Israels right to exist! There are a few who don’t believe in a two state solution and think a single secular democratic state is the only solution. The secular democratic state is nothing more than the elimination of a Jewish state and the Palestinian’s cherished main goal!
I do not understand why there is such a blind spot in most people that seems unwilling to recognize reality when it comes to Israel. There is a cliche that bears repeating: If Israel laid down it’s arms they would be destroyed, If the Arabs laid down their arms there would be peace! There is one other thing that must be mentioned, How can there be peace in the Middle East if as a matter of policy the Palestinian Authority does not yet recognize Israel’s right to exist! Until they are willing to recognize Israel’s right to exist there can be no peace. Until people are willing, like President Trump Wednesday, to recognize reality, there won’t be a long lasting peace in the Middle East. Meanwhile, my Granddaughter needs to remember the correct capital of Israel, Jerusalem!
