So did Netanyahu play his cards wrong or did Trump not want to move the embassy all along? I get that Trump “recognized” Jerusalem and that is probably enough for everyone, but what happened to “moving the embassy”? Netanyahu said he “thinks” the embassy will be moved this year, and after Trump was asked for a remark, he said “its a no”.
After all its not about moving the embassy or not, its about Trumps mindset. Can one finally be convinced that maybe Trump doesnt always please the Jews?January 18, 2018 9:08 am at 9:08 am #1451938
The President said right from the beginning that it will take about two years to build a new embassy and move it. Nothing he said in the last few days is different than what he said from Day One when he announced the embassy move to Jerusalem.
Everything remains the same and on-track to move. No news here.January 18, 2018 11:44 am at 11:44 am #1452187
2 years to build is fine. But I haven’t seen them start yet.January 18, 2018 11:44 am at 11:44 am #1452189
you arent being completely truthful.
From the beginning he said he would move it on “day one”
he is now delaying it at least a few years.
the move doesnt have to take long. All they have to do is cross of the word consulate off the building and write in the word embassy. If they need a new buidling they can move the embassy from Agron road when the new building is readyJanuary 18, 2018 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1452265
“2 years to build is fine. But I haven’t seen them start yet.”
It’s been four weeks since the Executive Order to move the embassy. Did you expect a ground-breaking already?
“All they have to do is cross of the word consulate off the building and write in the word embassy.”
They decided to build a new building that is secure and large enough for an American embassy rather than just change the name plates on the small consulate.
What’s the rush?January 18, 2018 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #1452292
“They decided to build a new building that is secure and large enough for an American embassy rather than just change the name plates on the small consulate.”
cmon, why not do bothJanuary 18, 2018 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #1452353
Forget even the embassy move, just focus on Trumps mindset. Maybe this will be a wake up call for all the non minded Yidden who think Trump will do everything to please us. Trump is the prime example of an ego maniac who makes his own decisions and has a final say in everything (and im not a trump hater just pointing out the fact).
To all those who frantically chant “his daughter is Jewish”! Well Pharaohs daughter also converted to Judaism. How much did that influence her father? Not much did it. Look into this weeks Parsha for proof.
Lets just take a step back and let things roll without dancing in weddings wearing t-shirts of “I love Trump”
Thats all Im trying to say.January 18, 2018 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #1452666
This story will be appearing in tomorrow’s New York Times:
Jan. 18, 2018
The Trump administration is moving faster than expected to transfer the American Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv by 2019, senior officials said Thursday… The administration’s plans, following Mr. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, suggest it no longer cares about cushioning the blow of the new policy, which has drawn angry protests from Palestinians and other Arabs… the State Department has since settled on a more modest plan to convert an existing consular building in Arnona, a neighborhood in West Jerusalem…January 18, 2018 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #1452668GadolhadorahParticipant
The WH just clarified that consistent with the President’s long-standing position, no work will begin on moving the Embassy to Yerushalayim until EY agrees to pays for the new Embassy building. He further conditioned the Embassy move on EY also agreeing to pay for the wall along the Mexican border and changing the name of Kind David hotel to the King Donald Hotel.January 19, 2018 7:55 am at 7:55 am #1452786
you left out some other quotes
“When the president signed a proclamation in December recognizing Jerusalem as the capital, he quietly signed another document waiving a congressional demand that the United States move the embassy to Jerusalem within six months.”
We will seeJanuary 19, 2018 8:38 am at 8:38 am #1452795ZionGateParticipant
Now, or next year or 2 isn’t the issue. The big picture is that Trump changed the dynamics of the “peace” process, and even some Arab countries are quietly approving of the move.
“I love Trump” T-shirts are pretty cool… Tired of the seltzer bottles on head acts , and clumsy ‘ole dancers stumbling away at the Keitzad Meraglim scenes when they hustle the kallah in for a minute… Whatever makes people happy…. Let ‘er rip..!!!!!
