So it begins...Jerusalem. Well here we go.
Trump Informs Abbas, Jordan's Abdullah He Intends to Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
U.S. President Donald Trump told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan's King Abdullah that he plans to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Tuesday, according to Abbas' spokesman and Jordanian reports. Trump also called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi to inform him of the decision.
Following the call, Abbas urged Pope Francis (wut?) as well as French and Jordanian leaders to intervene on Trump's plan to move the embassy.
I don't want to ignite the storied IP Wars of ToP here.
We all knew this would be "resolved" one way or another. It was always when, not if.
And we all knew it would go badly no matter who or how the intransigence of the parties was to finally be broken.
