President Trump Recognizes Jerusalem As Israel’s Capital

Hunter Wallace reports:

Finally, Sheldon Adelson and AIPAC got what they wanted:

“WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing nearly seven decades of American foreign policy and setting in motion a plan to move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to the fiercely contested Holy City.

“Today we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” Mr. Trump said from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.”

The president cast his decision as a break with decades of failed policy on Jerusalem, which the United States, along with virtually every other nation in the world, has declined to recognize as the capital since Israel’s founding in 1948. That policy, he said, brought us “no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. …”

Trump promised to do this in his AIPAC speech during the campaign. By May, Sheldon Adelson was getting black-pilled on the Jerusalem move. He had given $80 million dollars to Trump’s presidential campaign and this was supposed to happen on Day One. The State Department threw up roadblocks to the radical change in longstanding US foreign policy.

“Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson is reportedly “furious” at President Trump for not immediately moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem — and hit the roof when he heard Secretary of State Rex Tillerson tie the move to jumpstarting the peace process.

The casino mogul forked over $80 million to elect Trump — and took him at his word that he would move the embassy on Day One.

So it’s come as quite a shock to see the new administration sound pretty much like every other administration — using words like “cautious” and “deliberation” to describe a slow-if-ever process towards making such a shift…”

In the end, Sheldon Adelson and Organized Jewry got what it wanted from Trump and the GOP. It has gotten everything it wanted this year with the exception of a ground war in Syria to oust Assad. Wall Street is roaring. The massive tax cuts are on the way. The Charlottesville resolution was unanimously passed by Congress and signed by Trump. The Iran deal was decertified. Tomorrow, Trump is huddling with top Jewish donors to celebrate Hanukkah at the White House.

What’s on the agenda for 2018?
