Only time will tell. Like almost everything Trump does, in the current PC world it was not a PC decision. That being said, it was one of his campaign promises, and for the last 20 years Presidents of the United States have been saying they were going to do, and did not deliver on their promise due to the fears of their Cabinets and of Congress that more violence would ignite in the Middle East.

I think we can see that decision did not stop the violence. I think the violence will continue...probably forever....due to the temperament of far too many of the people in the region.

So...in typical Trump fashion, Trump gave the Israelis a Christmas gift....an enormous set of red balls. :)

Yes, well summarised, if I might say so. Heading for BA Rolle. Now don't get too excited... ;)

More like a deliberate Michael Jackson moon walk...

1) Solidarity with Israel
2) Violence will happen over there (and everywhere) irrespective.
3) It seems Jerusalem has been the effective capital for some time. So why p*ss about?
4) It was an election promise (I understand)
5) He doesn't give a flying f*rt who he upsets, bottom line.

That's sort of my reading of his mind.

Violence has already started.

It is likely to stall the peace process that Kushner is/was working on and has already led to violence in Jerusalem today. The Middle East is at best a tinderbox waiting to be set alight - one hopes that this is not the match to start the blaze.
