Huge policy change!

This won't go unanswered.

Trump 2020 is a done deal.

Trump 2020 is a done deal.

In the dreams of Putin, whose global reach has expanded (see Russian Federation Eurasian Economic Union) during the Trump reign, and Putin's troll armies paid to push his far right agenda globally.

Since when is the Trump Administration the arbiter of International Law? Or any law, for that matter.

Good to see the Trump Administration taking yet another stand against leftist anti-Semitism.

The left have questioned American funding of Israel.

The idea that the left is anti-semitic, when there are so many jews on the left, is well, very Russian interferance like; it's what the Russians say when they want to seed dissent.

Trump trying to give a boost to the the failed Netanyahu who after two general elections has failed to form a government. Israel could be heading into a third election if Benny Gantz the opposition can't form one too.

Netanyahu is still under investigation for corruption. His family was already found guilty. He attacked Gaza to sidetrack the debate.

This will cost Trump and America on the international stage not that he seems to care about that.

The majority of Jews inside and out of Israel do not support Netanyahu.

it's what the Russians say when they want to seed dissent.

Indeed. Such comments are deliberately constructed every day to sow dissent. Questions as the authenticity of such sentiment & asking to elaborate will be ignored.

This is a disaster. Although, given Pompeo's beliefs, it's hardly surprising. It shows the absolute contempt that the Trump administration has for Palestinians.

This is unnecessary and will only make the situation on the ground worse.

Could you elaborate?

There's no doubt that Trump has been a staunch, unwavering ally of Israel since he was elected.

He's granted every wish the Zionists have asked for.

Trump is not going to walk away empty-handed, Quid Pro Quo is a given here.

But Trump can rest assured that the Dems wouldn't touch "conspiracy with Israel" with a 10-foot pole.

Smart move by Trump, tonnes of New York money and favors are coming his way.

The land belongs to Israel. They conquered it fair and square. Time for the rest of the Arab "brotherhood" to take in their poor Palestinian relations and bring this episode to a close. There is plenty of room in Egypt or Saudi Arabia or Jordan or Syria for a Palestinian state. Or, they could simply offer the Palestinians full rights as citizens.... but they don't. They prefer the Palestinians to be kept in misery, and use them as attack dogs against Israel. It's sad.

What is undeniable here is people's belief in their religions is the underlying root cause of this problem and many problems around the world. Compounded by the carving up of the Persian Empire.
