President Trump did the right thing. The duly-elected Israeli government recognizes Jerusalem as the capitol of their nation. But for years, especially during the Obama Administration, the United State refused to acknowledge the city as Israel's capitol. That ended today.
President Trump, much to his credit, has acquiesced to the fact that Israel is a sovereign nation; a nation whose government can declare its own capitol. That the rest of the world, and the pathetically anti-Israel United Nations, should have any say at all over where Israel decides to establish its capitol is insane.
The fact of the matter is this. The root of the word Palestine is "philistine"; a people, not a land. In fact, it is the scriptures of the Jews that even afford the Philistines with an area, mostly accepted to be fluid and without fixed borders. That modern-day Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capitol is antagonistic.
In the end, and for today's argument, the world must recognize Israeli sovereignty and their claim to Jerusalem as their capitol. If to the victors go the spoils, then the Israelis have a right to land they have already ceded back to their aggressor enemies. They could have kept it all after the many wars they have suffered at the hands of neighboring lands. It is time aggressors toward Israel in that region -- and around the world -- recognize Israeli sovereignty and end the Palestinians' false claim to Israeli land.
