The first US embassy is dedicated in Jerusalem

US Ambassador David Friedman opened the ceremony with the American anthem and a video message of congratulations from President Donald Trump declaring that every nation has the right to choose its capital, including Israel, and pledging friendship. The gathering of 800 guests, included a large delegation of US administration officials and members of congress. President Trump’s son-in- law and senior adviser Jared Kushner delivered warm congratulations in his opening remarks. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu paid tribute to the president who made history by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin drew the curtain from the sign on the wall of the former consulate building: The United State embassy.

    So, what’s left of the Oslo accords?
    Other than buy time, for this Jerusalem thing to happen, were those accords of any good for Israel?
    How much longer has Yigal Amir to suffer?

        Oslo is a place where mothefocker Yitzhak used to shake hands with motherfocker Yasser.
        Later on, motherfocker Abbas said on Sep. 30, 2015 – “we cannot continue to be bound by these agreements.” But Yigal Amir said way back in 1995 all this BS accords is treason.
        Now, 23 years later, he’s still in prison.

          No “mothefocker” Yitzhak Rabin, please! If you look from the perspective of today (let aside for now a much longer perspective!) he did the right thing for that time, and Yigal Amir too.
          No one is a hero, they are just common Jews entangled in the gears of time.
          Yeah, I agree, Yigal Amir must go home under perpetual house arrest, to keep him off media and freeze the whole history.

      Works fine only with an accord with Egypt or Jordan to receive “expulsion for civil disobedience” or something like that. But not “just Israel” as a country does not work, only policing. ‘t will be an effort, but in 1-2 hundred years they might get a sense of normal social life behaving.

      First mayor duty would be to bulldoze all old mosques, confiscate and burn all old style Qurans, distribute free new style approved Qurans, and build approved mosques driven by approved new style imams.

    Congratulations…it is high-time this historic day has finally taken place.
    Has it not been written that the LORD said, “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around…”

      ‘…and also on Judah, [that he] shall be in the siege against Jerusalem.’

      Yea, even Judah will fight against Jerusalem! And the wealth of all the nations round about-gold and silver and apparel-will be gathered in very great abundance.

      And I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to wage war; and the city shall be captured, and the houses shall be plundered, and the women shall be ravished, and half the city shall go forth into exile-and the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

      Only Jerusalem, but what of the land, the peoples land.

      And the angel who was speaking to me came forth, and he said to me, “Now lift up your eyes and see what this is that is coming forth.”

      And I said, “What is it?” And he said, “This is the ephah that is going forth.” And he said, “This is [the punishment of those] whose eye [gazes] over the entire land.”

      (And, after I saw it, he said, “ This is the measure by which punishment was meted out to those whose eyes were over the entire land, to rob and to oppress, to make the ephah smaller and to make the shekel larger; and punishment was meted out to them, a measure for a measure.”)

    ‘All the nations are as nought before Him; as things of nought and vanity are they regarded by Him’

    In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’.

    ‘Woe to those who are at ease in Zion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the first of the nations, and the house of Israel has come to them’

    My people were lost sheep, their shepherds caused them to stray, [to the] mountains [they] led them astray; from mountain to hill they went, they forgot their resting place.

    As you rejoice, as you jubilate, O spoilers of My heritage, as you become fat like a threshing heifer, and you neigh as strong horses,

    your mother has been exceedingly shamed, she who bore you has been embarrassed; behold the end of the nations is desert, wasteland, and a barren plain.

    And it shall be, as the hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats, and he shall awaken, and his appetite is unsated, and as the thirsty man dreams, and behold he drinks, and he shall awaken and behold he is faint, and his soul yearns, so shall be the multitude of all the nations gathered on Mount Zion.
