God is smiling today as President Trump (making good on what the United States has been promising to do for 22 years) officially recognized His Holy City Jerusalem as Israel’s capital… Halleluiah!

“Today, nearly seventy years after the founding of the modern State of Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people, the United States has officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Since 1949 the seat of Israel’s government has been in Jerusalem. This historic change in US policy rights a longstanding injustice.”

(I)f there is any change to the status quo, let the blame lie where it should be: at the hands of President Obama for his cowardly decision to wait until he was a lame-duck president to get even with Prime Minister Netanyahu. President Trump deserves praise for restoring balance in negotiations with Israel and the Palestinians. It was President Obama who made peace more difficult. It was President Trump who made it more feasible again.
