US Politics V - now with 20% more echo chamber

Trump's going to recognize Jerusalem aa the Israeli capital, because some men just want to see the world burn.

i don't even understand why israel would want this at this point. if they somehow got the one state solution and legally annexed the west bank and gaza they'd either have to turn into a fascist apartheid pariah state or let the palestinians share real power somehow.

The only question that needs to be asked is this: will it annoy liberals?

If the answer is yes, Trump will do it.

I mean the timing makes sense re deutsche bank etc. Trump loves diversions. But this one is odd.

You sure about that?

I'd say it's a strange republican thing to be very pro-the Israeli state.

Why? My best guess is that they're a group of somewhat white people surrounded by arabs. There's always been the republican cries for "supporting our allies" of Israel.

Evangelicals support Israel because they believe it's their obligation as Christians to support the Chosen People of God, regardless of how immoral or ass-backwards their actions may be. The rebirth of Israel is viewed as miraculous and ties in with Biblical prophecy.

Why secular Republicans would blindly support Israel I have less rationale for.

Trump is an odd duck, in that his son and law, daughter and grandkids are Orthodox Jews, and in that he's a flaming racist.

Remember when Trump said Jared was going to broker peace there. He actually said something like that during the campaign.
