The move to Jerusalem turned out to be a nothingburger. Once the new embassy is built and then blown up, that will be a big deal.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

In reality it seems like both side agree - this is the Trump embassy to Israel.

He commercializes everything, so there will undoubtedly be MAGA hats sold on the premises.

The (multiple) banners have been put up around the capital by the Friends of Zion, a American Christian group.

Oh, that's interesting. The Christian right is feeling its oats, I guess. Here's another example:

Fox Host Jeanine Pirro says Donald Trump fulfilled biblical prophecy by moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

[And then there is a 1 min. video you can click on where it shows her basically saying just that.]

I wonder how most Israelis feel about Onward Christian Soldiers! coming to fulfill their notion of a prophecy in the New Testament. Does Israel (at least the government of Israel) embracing them necessarily come along with embracing Trump? I suppose they will be diplomatic as possible without really overtly sanctioning the notions of many of the American Christian right. But it may take some deftness to pull it off without hitches. Deftness - one of the Trump administration's strengths.

I don't think the Israelis understand how serious the American Christian right is that the next step toward the end-times will be the conversion of all the Jews to Christianity. I have no doubt that some of these "friends of Zion" will be willing force conversion if it is necessary to bring Jesus' second coming.

That is pretty much it, all the dire predictions by wannabe be pundits predictably turned out to just that, a nothingburger.

We should have done it long time ago respecting historical reality.
Trump should get the credit for finally getting it done.
Then again, the Democratic ideologues cannot admit that Trump got something right where their exalted heroes facing exactly the same situation, not only failed them miserably, but actually sold them down the jihadi river....

I think they have a very good idea. End-of-the-world-all-the-Jews-die Christianity has been around a very long time. Many Israelis, surrounded by murderous enemies and hostile UN and a foreign climate feel they are forced to take any political support they can find. Over the decades, they have been constantly warned to watch out for these guys. They have heard it.
As for the banners, Israel is a democratic country where free speech is tolerated, unlike all the other lands in the Middle East and much of Asia.
