Arab and Muslim leaders escalate pressure on Trump on Jerusalem


Warnings of dire consequences – major unrest, Arab and Muslim anger and an end to the peace process – have come from Arab leaders as President Donald Trump pondered a change in Jerusalem’s status. The White House missed Monday’s deadline for signing another six-month waiver on the US law mandating the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Earlier, Jordan’s foreign minister Ayman Safadi warned that his failure to sign would trigger anger across the Arab and Muslim world. Egypt’s foreign minister Sameh Shouky spoke of a “negative impact” in the region; Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan called recognizing Jerusalem a “red line” for Muslims and warned he would sever ties with Israel; and the Saudi ambassador to Washington warned of a “detrimental impact” on the peace process.

President Trump is expected to disclose his position on Jerusalem’s status in a statement on Wednesday.
Israel’s ambassador to Washington, in an interview to Politico Monday, advised the Palestinians to “Wake up.” Not recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a “farce,” he said. “Understand that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. You have to deal with that reality.”

    The tactic of threatening violence when you cannot get your own way must come to an end, otherwise the west may as well change its collective name to the United states of capitulation, Europe and Israel.

    It all started in June 1967 with Shaitan badly tickling with his prick the minds of the arabs. They got excited, and in 6 days Jerusalem was handled over pretty gracefully to the jewish people, returning so to the rightful owners. And Allah said upon the losers “Fukem, let Jerusalem be in jewish hands forever !”.

    In the event of a wonderful lasting peace, a nice beautiful building is already reserved for the embassy of Chairman Abbas to Israel, the address is 1973 John Kippur Avenue, Est Jerusalem.

    No one will survive in the end. Bible is fake. Check out Nathan’s last year’s prophecy posted last year on YouTube.

    Arabs threatening violence, is tantamount to a prostitute threatening to have sex with a customer. This is what they do…so in other words, they are threatening to act as they always have!
