The decision may yield some domestic political advantage among Jewish and evangelical Christian voters 

Is it really just the votes he's after?

Come on Peter, we're not children.

Negotiating with the Arab world over the 'Palestinians' they refused to accept into their countries is a fool's errand we don't need to be part of anymore, they have no intention of reaching a peaceful agreement with Israel. So let's drop the lies and tell it like it is, Jerusalem is Israel's capital, pretending otherwise only fosters the delusions of the fanatics.

Hardly. I don't agree with the actions of Israel in regards to Palestine, but calling Israel the country hew new nazi's is mis-characterization.

Maybe because you are only thinking of the worst things the NAZI's did. But their policies over unwanted people in the territory they are occupying are far more similar.

Actually good to see this decision reverses Obama’s negative legacy dealing w the Israeli/Palestinian issue. Jerusalem as the capital was affirmed officially by the US years ago & now Prez Trump is simply making it a reality.
