US President Donald Trump will recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, senior administration officials have said.

He is due to announce the controversial decision in a speech later.

Mr Trump is also expected to approve moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but not for several years.

LOL.

And already the various Muslim leaders are threatening violence !

It's worth making the change just to see them all fume and fulminate.

I don't think it will be that big of a deal.  There might be some riots and deaths in the beginning, but it will settle down.

As with any changes in the Middle East, "There might be some riots and deaths in the beginning, but it will settle down."

5000 years of perpetual conflict...

Someone with enough mettle. Good move. Palestine will protest anything that's in favor of Israel.

My gut reaction was that its probably kicking a hornets nest that didn't need kicking but really I don't really care about the issue one way or the other, why do you say this is a good move?

Look at your kids or nieces and nephew or grandchildren in the face, think of all the kids or nieces and nephew or grandchildren in the world  ... its their future that is being placed on the high stakes high risk table ... just for some Political Brownie points ...

If that doesn't make any one insanely angry I guess I have very little else to add ...

It's a good move because it resolves or legitimizes Israel control over the city of Jerusalem. eventually its going to belong to one of them as we have seen again and again that Palestinian and Israeli won't be able to share it peacefully and for the citizens of the city it's better to be with Israel as they can provide better infrastructure.

Well, I was more meaning that it won't cause a war or anything permanent.   The US probably won't qualify as neutral mediators in any peace negotiations anymore.  But then again, we never were never truly neutral in the matter anyways.  Not that I expect that peace in the middle east will happen in my lifetime.

Why? - just because the USA says so?

A thought just crossed my mind and I honestly don't know the answer but will this move in any way increase the value of the properties the Kushner family has built over there?

Or it will decrease it.  What areas of the world do the Trumps not have some kind of interest?  I'm sure that is not an issue.

This was one of Trump’s campaign promises...good or bad he has kept his promise.

Yeah. Some deaths. Somewhere far away. Would you talk like that if the stakes were your children, parents?

some promises are made to be broken and this was one of them - even Boris the fella who masquerades as a foreign secretary in the UK thinks its a bad move - and that's saying something.

The Middle East was peaceful and stable, for hundreds of years, before this. You can say that he put gasoline on the inferno. It's more likely that he flicked a Bic in Hell. Of course, Trump is damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't.

Not so much the 'What' but more about the 'How' #45 went about it ... and as if that's not enough, I am hearing lots of mention about some secret ' Sparky's Plan ' ... it seems now, apparently, there is a plan ... " I have a plan " said the Chief, Famous last words comes to mind .... if the circumstances were not so dire I would be shedding tears of laughter
