The issue of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has been around for a long time, and wisely we’ve taken a hands-off approach. Jerusalem is holy to three religions and should be off limits when it comes to campaign pledges and U.S. foreign policy. I’m glad so many world leaders are speaking out against President Trump’s dangerous move.
There are factions in the Middle East who’ll utilize the Jerusalem capital initiative to create more havoc and violence, not just in the region, but throughout the world. Don’t we have enough bloodshed and destruction already? Mr. Trump’s initiative to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital put millions of lives at risk everywhere.
