Trump Now Said To Plan 6 Month Delay On Jerusalem Embassy Move

Update: In a stunning reversal, Bloomberg is now reporting that Trump is considering a six-month waiver before moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. The report doesn't say anything about whether Trump still plans to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital tomorrow morning.

Update: CNN is reporting that Trump will officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during a Wednesday announcement in Washington...

Update: With local news reporting that Trump and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, one of his most trusted allies in the region, it's becoming clear that Trump is calling leaders in the region to prepare them for the US's decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem - a decision that will likely outrage much of the region. According to Reuters, Trump told both Palestinian and Jordanian leaders, as well as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of his intentions.

One by one, world leaders - most recently Jordna's King Abdullah - have warned that such a move would have "dangerous repercussions" for security and stability in the region. Saudi King Salman said the decision would hurt the Israeli-Palestine peace process.

Meanwhile, the State Department is warning consulates across the world to prepare to boost security if Trump decides to move the embassy. Trump promised to move the embassy during his campaign but decided to delay back in June, according to the Daily Caller.

State has urged consulates across the world to boost security if President Donald Trump announces a relocation of the embassy in Israel.

“The impending Jerusalem announcement has me very worried about the possibility of violent responses that could affect embassies,” a State Department official told Politico. “I hope I’m wrong."

The department is warning of violence against both diplomats and US citizens, and is warning them to stay away from the West Bank: "US gov't employees & family restricted from personal travel in Jerusalem’s Old City & in the West Bank. US citizens should avoid crowds and areas with increased police and/or military presence"

Israeli security agencies have met over the past few days to prepare for riots and other attacks, according to the Ynet news agency. Authorities believe Trump’s announcement could spark attacks from established terror groups, as well as so-called “lone wolf” terrorists.

After warning that he could officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital by the end of the week - an announcement that drew vociferous objections from Turkey and Saudi Arabia, who both warned that such a declaration would irreparably damage US ties with the Muslim world - Palestinian sources are reporting that President Donald Trump told Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas that the US intends to eventually move its embassy to Jerusalem - a contested city that is claimed as a capital by both Israel and the Palestinian territories.

As we noted earlier, the decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital would infuriate Palestinians.

Majdi Khaldi, a diplomatic adviser of President Mahmoud Abbas, said the Palestinian leadership would "stop contacts" with the US if Trump recognized Jerusalem – making Jared Kushner’s job of solving the Israel-Palestine conflict even more difficult than it already is. Khaldi said the US would lose credibility as a mediator in the Middle East if the US President went ahead with the move. Kushner had earlier said Trump hadn't made a final decision.

On the call with Abbas, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other regional leaders, Abbas warned Trump that moving the embassy could have "dangerous consequences."

Readouts of the calls are expected later Tuesday.

Trump was expected to announce as soon as Wednesday that the US would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move its embassy there (though some expected that he would delay the embassy move, but stress that he would eventually like to do so, according to local Israeli media.)

Israel considers Jerusalem its true capital, and the western part of the city is host to many of the Israeli state's administrative functions.

If Trump follows through with what he told Abbas, his actions this week would be considerably more dramatic than anticipated.

Does Trump want to move the Jew capital to Jerusalem.

Of course, the idiot does. Trump is a Jew.

Just like, Obama, Bush and (Bill & Hillary) Clinton are all Jews.

And as to how real wars are fought,.... i.e., through deception, see

It seems pretty weird when you first read it, but its clearly true.

There was foreign influence in the election but it was not Russian

Yup, Trump was all bought and paid for by Bibi, but that was more than evident from the start and for anyone who was able to look at the election campaign with a relatively open mind.

In the mean time, Trump does yet another flip-flop by delaying the embassy for 6 months. The only thing missing is a tweet-storm.

By the way, it's really quite shocking to realise that so many MAGA ZH-ers put so much faith in this Orange Clown, and it's also quite funny and ironic since so many here hate Israel judging by the anti-Semitic rants.

I'm seriously wondering how many ZH-ers could be wrong about Buttcoin and gold as well...

So much for Trump draining The Swamp, as he's just about to launch the Middle East into even more chaos. But hey, I guess it's good for The Swamp and the US MIC, right?

Or - like Germany, when divided was East Berlin and West Berlin as respective capitals, maybe "Palestine" and Israel can merge and have their capital as Jerusalem.  Just call it the promised land of both the arabs and jews and christians for that matter.  And the state capital.  Not that hard.  Except for all the hand-wringing and history

Trump Reportedly Tells Mideast Leaders He Intends To Move Embassy To Jerusalem

My response: Earlier today, we saw comments from the TYRANT of TURKEY along with the our friends, the SAUDIs. If memory serves me correctly, these two nations are based on Islam, correct?

So let's ask a question: Why is JERUSALEM a concern to the ARABS and the TURKS? The word "Jerusalem" IS NOT FOUND ONCE in the Qur'an.

On the other hand, the word "Jerusalem" occurs 820 times in 772 verses in the NKJV of the Bible.

Jerusalem is GOD's city and it belongs to ISRAEL. Is everyone getting that point?


GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP and HIS TEAM. What ever the decision, it will be the will of GOD of the Bible and NOT Allah!!

Zechariah 12:2

"I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem.

This is just another land grab, but this time one that stomps on SACRED GROUND THAT BELONGS TO THE PALESTINIANS AND NOT ISRAHELL.

do you even know the difference between that which is physical and that which is spiritual? there is an israel of the flesh and there is an Israel of God(those who have been given the Faith of Christ) there is an earthly jerusalem (sodom and egypt ie revalation) and there is a heavenly Jerusalem. by not dividing the script properly you are in extreme error, and why would you read a paraphrase of the script instead of the real thing?

I just watch. And I feel blessed to be living in these times, although I might live to regret this.

But I was taught that when the Jews reassumed control of the Temple of the Mount that this was to take place in the end times. This is definately a step in that direction. Along with Jews allying themselves with Sauds, and the battles taking shape around Syria's Golan Heights, a mere 60 miles from the Valley of Armageddon. The bear, the eagle, the lion and the dragon are choosing sides and definately making moves.

Coincidence? Maybe.

Remember the USS Liberty, when Israel (and LBJ) murdered US Marines and Sailors in a failed attempt to sink a ship to blame on Egypt in a war Israel started to grab land.

And remember the fantastic costs of Israel to US taxpayers

Remember that under US Law, groups like AIPAC are *required* to register as foreign agents, but the ZOG refuses to enforce this law against Israel, just like it provides weapons to Israel though US laws forbid providing weapons to nuclear states that have not signed the NPT.
Note that the failure of the ZOA/AIPAC to comply facilitated the theft by Israeli agents of US nuclear material by a ring which Netanyahu was involved with.

Remember the ZIONIST JEW CREATED AND RUN 'Office of Special Plans' which fabricated evidence to lie the US into a war for Israel, as the Zios had long craved:

Remember that the Mossad lied to the US about a Syrian 'nuclear reactor' and weapons program

Skim the following, which is an overview of Zionist calls to destroy Syria and Iraq and Lebanon for an expansionist Jewish state

The 'neocons' were and are a Zionist and Jewish clique whose primary goal is Greater Israel. They conflate Israeli interests with American ones, and use wildly disproportionate campaign contributions, bribes, and the term 'anti-Semite' to prevent discussion of their Jewishness and primary allegiance to a foreign power that spies on the US relentlessly while selling its secrets in the past to the USSR, China, and others.

Remember that the NSA, which illegally spies on all US citizens and sucks up every email and packet transmitted across the intertubes, but couldnt find hillary's deleted emails or prove the DNC was hacked by Russia...
was and is absolutely compromised by Israel

to which it gives the 'raw data' with a nice pretty bow on it.

Remember that Mossad posed as CIA agents while recruiting terrorists in Iran

That Israel is the biggest 'ally' spy threat by far

And recall US Army Intelligence's report of 9/10/01 regarding Mossad's capacity to attack the US and make it look like Arabs.

Remember the Israeli spies caught filming and celebrating the collapse of the towers on 9/11

Remember multiple reports demonstrating Israeli (and Saudi) support for Al Qaeda and ISIS as the latter expecially targeted Christians, murdering and torturing thousands of them... not merely weapons and buying their oil but explicit military coordination

And remember the many, significant Jewish/Zionist/Israeli connections to 9/11 which launched the Endless War in MENA

And remember, (((they))) are lying, hard, about Iran to lie us into another war for Israel, energy profiteering, and ultimately, The One Bank.


There is nothing sacred or holy or good about Ersatz 'Israel' nor the cult of yahweh the demon archon.

Il Capo,the Donald,our shabbos-goy-in-chief,after he did the sword dance and wahhabi glob fondling in Saudi Barbaria,the other "awesome US ally",went to the Zionist Entity ,with a gift of 150 mil $(as if the Billions given to the occupied Palestine were  not enough),he put the kippah on his head and proceeded to f*ck the wailing wall(because this is what the US representatives and Presidents do). He said long time ago he wanted to move the capital. It was also clear he is kissing Satanyahoo's ass from the vicious,unjustified attack against Iran.

All US presidents,Senators and Congressmen have to be approved by AIPAC and other chosen organizations. If not,YOU WOULD NOT MAKE IT in the election/selection.

The faggot had the WH staff stuffed with dual citizens,starting with Rahm Emanuel.That's why I was ROTFLOL when people said he was a Moslem(never mind his mother was  part of the tribe).The Donald has relatives belonging to the tribe and more then 100 people in high positions of power belonging to the tribe.His daughter,Yael,his son-in-law,kushner(aka DAMIEN). What more proof do you need,goyim?

I say,let's move Washington DC to Jerusalem,too.Why pretend anymore we are a sovereign nation?

hey bunker, Revelation of Christ calls that city(jerusalem) sodom and egypt, the place where he was crucified, and we all know what happened to sodom and gommorah.

Should we hold a vote one of these days about our involvement in foreign affairs?  Shouldn't the people of the country be able to express their concern over meddling in Mid East BULLSHIT and foreign borders?  Why are we even there?

Of course this is another banker instituted policy because bankers are above all laws, all votes, and all reality.  The people have no say, yet will send their sons and daughters to fight another banker war.

Jerusalem as Israel's Capital…..It’s a Right-Wing Colonization by Other Means

By Daniel Ptashny, Zionist, supports the two-state solution and centrist parties in Israel

For the United States…

The benefits lie in a more positive relationship with Israel. During the administration of President Obama, this relationship was tarnished by a personal feud ….to signal a “fresh start”, President Trump can move the embassy as a sort of a favor to PM Netanyahu and the Israeli government.

For Israel…

The benefits are only hypothetical and far-reaching. …..Palestinian faction which is even remotely prepared to sign a peace agreement with Israel …. Israel to prove its ownership of Jerusalem is far-fetched.

For PM Netanyahu…

The benefits come in the form of a temporary popularity among the Israeli far-right. The far-right (specifically, the Jewish Home party) has been calling for the United States to move the embassy for years. Since the primary threat to PM Netanyahu’s power comes from the far-right (PM Netanyahu is center-right), being able to take credit for the embassy move (even if he has no part in it), will improve his standing there. The far-right makes up the bulk of the ruling coalition outside of Hareidi parties and those aligned with PM Netanyahu himself.

For President Trump…

The benefits primarily involve boosting his support among Evangelicals. Since Evangelical Christians strongly support Israel and see Jerusalem as central to God’s plan for the country, an official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will be welcomed. As such, President Trump will gain even more support among a bloc which already voted primarily for him.

Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since biblical times. It's only fair and right that US embassy should be in Israel's capital. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. They treat Muslims better than their own countries do. God said to Abraham that he would bless those who bless him and curse those who curse him. It's no coincidence that the poorest and most backward countries on earth are Muslim countries.

Israel isn't a Christain country or even a Jewish country but it will be eventually:

(Zechariah 12:8-10 NIV)  On that day the LORD will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the Angel of the LORD going before them. {9} On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem. {10} "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.

Those who hate Israel and the Jews are enemies of God. They serve Satan's interests. They will get the reward that's coming to them.

I agree america should not get involved in Israeli borders, and want to amplify your voice as much as possible.

Do not trust what the PA says. Also, you should not look to Washington to solve the Jewish peoples problems, or the worlds problems. They have their own deceptive agenda, and it does not include the Jewish people talking about the mentality and sentiment of the arab muslims, or the limited discourse of the white gentiles of America and Europe. Which means the Jews will be stuck with ‘allies’ who never allow Jews to discuss the mass murders, rapes and crimes of the muslims and africans, in Israel and in Europe and America, which would educate the Jews of Israel as to the real situation they are in, and why hate crimes never end against the Jews of Israel, year after year, despite signing peace deals. There is no point in signing peace deals promising to share power, and responsibility to fight terrorism, when the ‘palestinins’ elect the terrorist whenever they are given the opportunity to express how they really feel. As long as an arab muslim is able to hurt Jews, A substantial percent of the arab muslims will do so A substantial percent of the time. In G-d I trust. Creator of the laws of economics, security, peaceful coexistence, and demographics. Who’s Law is in contradiction to leftism and leftist thought. Amen.
