    Do you think moving the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem will cause violence or other problems?

    Hamas has already made indications that the proposed move by President Trump would be a problem.  The Palestinian Authority is also against the move as they feel Jerusalem is their territory and they want the Israelis gone.  The bigger question is that should America allow foreign nations to dictate our policies?  Why should we care what terrorists organizations want?  Most people agree that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, so why all the fuss?

    Yes.  If there was an answer to the issue that was that easy, it would have been done decades ago.

    It won't change the climate of violence, and disagreements that have existed for decades. There will just be a new title for why terrorism continues.

    It is interesting that two countries, actually two countries and the rest of the Middle East are fighting in the name of God. Yet, God has not helped either of them. On the Arab side, they are fighting Muslim against Muslim as well because their Mohammad didn't pick his successor.

    My point is that with or without the moving of the US Embassy to Jerusalem the violence is programmed to continue.

    As for your other point, the US should make its policies and actions based on the best interests of the country and Americans. That includes the UN. Where the countries that the US needs to keep in check can veto our vote.

    Desert Storm was an example of how we protected Kuwait, but were not allowed to contain Iraq, and then later we went in again. This was a needless risk to America military and it has lasted over a decade.

    My point is that previously the politicians have gotten us into wars, wars which we didn't win, but they haven't planned for getting us out of wars, We have been in wars most of the last hundred years. We lost all of them, imo.

    So when president Trump moves the US Embassy to Jerusalem, he should have an end game, unlike 911. This shouldn't be rattling sabres,
    as usual DEL is u wish.

      Brad, for once I agree with most of your points, maybe all. They've been programmed for thousands of years, not just decades. They are going to fight over something regardless.

    We should not act based on what may cause violence by Muslims when Israel's neighbors have already said they want to wipe Israel off the map and eliminate Jews.
    And it undermines freedom to accommodate the rioter's veto, to shut down speech or refuse to take action because the other side might be violent - and it emboldens them to commit violence to scare others into further acts of submission.
    So yes, move the embassy and stop catering to Muslim demands since it won't stop short of a new genocide and everyone else forced to submit to Shariah law.

      And the Jews want to wipe the Muslims off the face of the earth.

      Not true. Israel provides water, electricity, medical care, money to the Palestinians, and the PA agitates for their destruction. And their ancestors came to work only after Jews made Israel bloom after 1900.

      Why can they not have their own country on the land they occupy?

      There is a Palestinian homeland - it is called Jordan and many times larger than Israel.

    It would be a 'uge' mistake.  It would cause more problems than now.

      Can you not back your statements with something? Most of us would like to read your viewpoint, if you have reasons.
