Trump to Move US Embassy to Jerusalem This Year

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

His December 6 Jerusalem declaration included illegally recognizing the city as Israel’s exclusive capital, along with moving America’s embassy there at an unspecified future date.

On December 1, the self-styled newspaper of record NYT got it wrong, saying:

Trump “plans to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital but not to move the American Embassy there for now…a halfway gesture intended to fulfill a campaign pledge while not derailing his peace initiative.”

The Times’ unnamed sources got it wrong. More on this below. Trump deplores peace, rejecting it with Palestinians and everywhere else.

He pursues endless conflicts in multiple theaters, wants Palestinians subjugated, not liberated, supporting Israel’s intention to steal all valued Judea and Samaria land, along with maintaining Gaza’s suffocating blockade.

Based in Gaza, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) warned that its health sector is on the verge of collapse for severe shortages of medicines, “medical consumables,” and equipment.

Its supply of surgery-related antiseptics, disinfectants and antibiotics are completely exhausted, forcing operations to be cancelled – Abbas doing nothing to alleviate emergency conditions, in deference to his US/Israeli masters.

According to the Palestine News Network, citing the Hebrew “0404” website, Trump “confirmed to Israel his intention to transfer the embassy of his country from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as soon as possible, and begin (the) transfer this year.”

His staff is working with Netanyahu coalition officials to hasten the process, an unnamed White House source saying:

He “sent a clear message that he wants to start moving the embassy soon,” beginning this year.

Reportedly, he’ll initially shift it to Jerusalem’s Diplomacy Hotel. His move assures endless conflict as long as Ziofascists run America and Israel.

Prospects for resolution were always nil. The misnamed peace process is a colossal hoax because the criminal class in Washington and Tel Aviv reject it.
