A Historic Watershed That Shames Britain and Europe

editor 13 January 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. It’s a seismic event, a great decision and a historic watershed. This is where blackmail and intimidation are faced down. This is where appeasement ends. President Trump’s speech recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has signaled that, for America, the century- long Arab attempt to destroy Israel’s legitimacy – the essence of the Middle East conflict – has failed. Trump was careful and subtle. He did not say all of Jerusalem was Israel’s capital. The US will support a two-state solution if Israel and the Arabs agree to it. (more…)

Why Trump Should Move US Embassy to Jerusalem

editor 21 January 2017

By Kenneth Lasson.. It’s a wonder that US passports for people born in Israel’s holy city don’t list them as having entered the world in “Occupied Jerusalem.” If President-elect Donald Trump is as much a man of his word as he says he is, he’ll move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem shortly after he takes office. There are good diplomatic and constitutional reasons for him to do so. [Photo top right: The US embassy in Tel Aviv. (photo credit:REUTERS)] (more…)


Palestine Rage: Abbas Aide Says If Donald Trump Moves Embassy To Jerusalem It Will Cause All-Out War…..

editor 12 January 2017

By Lance Goodall.. If President-elect Donald Trump makes good on his promise to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, it would be considered “a declaration of war” on all Muslims, the Palestinian Authority’s supreme Sharia judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash [pictured ] declared on Friday (January 6, 2017). This is exactly what we have been telling our readers for a year now. The Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital, a ridiculous assertion, and will fight to the death if President Trump recognizes Jerusalem as belonging to the Jews, which it rightfully does.
