It’s no secret that Barack Hussein Obama hated Israel. Before he even took office he was reaching out to Iran and telling them not to worry because they would soon have a friend in the White House. His Israel hatred reached its peak at this time last year when, on his way out the door as the lamest of lame duck presidents, the US refused to veto a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned Israel for settlement construction.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center, which keeps track of such things, labeled it the most anti-Semitic incident of 2016.
Fast forward to today when, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time, President Trump will overturn decades of diplomatic ambivalence by announcing that the American embassy in Israel will be moved to that nation’s capitol in Jerusalem, reports ABC. More importantly, he will be recognizing Jerusalem as the official capitol of the Jewish people.
The President spent part of the day yesterday calling Arab leaders, including the ghetto terrorist cliché known as the Palestinian Authority, to inform them of the decision. It is a decision that recognizes reality, exclaimed the President.
For twenty years every U.S. president has signed a six month waiver twice a year, to delay moving the U.S. embassy to the Jewish capitol, citing ‘national security issues’. Even President Trump’s announcement will be followed by another six month waiver.
As we await a decision, share this message to @realDonaldTrump:

Exact details of the move are being kept secret, but what is known is that the process will take several years to complete as designs are considered and real estate is sought.
President Trump has proclaimed since the 2016 campaign that he would advocate for the change, but the world much like the American Left, ignored him and are now scrambling to react as they express ‘surprise’.
The world is literally opposing Trump’s decision, which means he is doing something right. Doing the noble thing is not based on majority a consensus.
The list of dissenters includes (H/T Zero Hedge):
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has said the announcement kills any MidEast peace efforts, while another PA official railed Trump “is declaring war in the Middle East, he is declaring war against 1.5 billion Muslims, hundreds of millions of Christians that are not going to accept the holy shrines to be totally under the hegemony of Israel.”
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has termed the move the crossing of a “red line” for Muslims and “a big blow to the conscience of humanity” and has called for an emergency summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on December 13.
Meanwhile in the United States, CNN has put out dire warning after dire warning, while focusing on the fact that everyone is against the President.
The New York Times, a newspaper that denied the Holocaust for years, has come out deriding the decision in its usual biased way:
“Mr. Trump’s decision, a high-risk foray into the thicket of the Middle East, was driven not by diplomatic calculations but by a campaign promise. He appealed to evangelicals and ardently pro-Israel American Jews in 2016 by vowing to move the embassy, and advisers said on Tuesday he was determined to make good on his word.”
President must indeed be doing something right by earning the world’s opprobrium.
