    When Trump made his ridiculous decision, did he say where the new 'embassy' be attempted to be built?

    Where would YOU like to see the American embassy built? East or West Jerusalem?

    I seriously hope saner heads prevail. Let's see what the UN says after their emergency meeting. Fingers still crossed that saner minds prevail.

    You seriously think that Israel or America will listen to anything said in the UN?

    Come on! Why change the habit of a lifetime!

    It depends on how strenuously the international community will object. At this point they need to just stand up and say 'no,' enough!

    Can somebody tell me what good it will do for the US to move the embassy? Is there any way it could help us?

    Because ... technically speaking... the US has no embassy in Israel. We have a Consulate. Our ambassador to Israel doesn’t legal have the diplomatic status of an ambassador.

    Embassy’s are located in the capitol city of a state. Consulates are located outside of capitol cities.

    It’s time for us to recognise this fact and correct this insult to our only steadfast ally in the Middle East.

    How many other countries have their embassy in Jerusalem? How many have their Consulate in Tel Aviv?
