Jerusalem: Capital of the New Regional Empire
Israeli PM Calls on All States to Recognize Jerusalem as Jewish Capital
December 6, 2017
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called on all states to follow the pattern of the US and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital to move their embassies there. Earlier, US President Donald Trump announced his decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“We are deeply grateful to the US President for his courageous and fair decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the forthcoming move of the US embassy,” — Netanyahu said in a video message.
Israeli Prime Minister promised to maintain the status quo of the Jerusalem holy places and to ensure religious freedom for Jews, Christians and Muslims.
Previously, the US president has stated that Israel has the right to determine its own capital. According to Donald Trump, the recognition of Jerusalem would not hamper the peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians and would prevent the US from assisting them.
This decision has already stipulated fierce crisisim from several world leaders, Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, French President Emmanuel Macron and so on, social media, because it contradicts with their political stance.

Trump pledged to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and to move the US embassy to Jerusalem during his presidential campaign in 2016. The Israeli parliament sits in West Jerusalem, which Israel established as its capital in 1950, in spite of a 1947 UN plan for a special international regime for the city. Jerusalem was declared the unified capital of Israel in 1980 in a move that was never recognized by any foreign state. Both Israel and Palestine claim Jerusalem as their capital. The PLO demands that Israel should withdraw from the Palestinian territories that it seized during the Six-Day War in 1967.

War is Peace
December 6, 2017
No one has utilised the Orwellian dictate that ‘War is Peace’ better than Donald Trump. In Orwell’s 1984, the Party maintains stability at home by waging constant war elsewhere.
Some contend that the American president is ‘illiterate’ and ‘ignorant.’ Others argue that it his intellectual skills that are limited. I have read some negative assessments of the President’s mental condition. But no one can really dispute Trump’s achievements. Against all odds, Trump became president. Despite relentless efforts to evict him from office, he has managed to cling to the White building. He regularly makes unpredictable unpopular decisions that make no sense to most reasonable, intelligent people. He communicates with the world by means of snippets and tweets. Yet miraculously, he prevails.
For a person who allegedly hasn’t read an entire book in his life, Trump has managed to achieve quite a lot. How does he do it? What goes in his mind? War is Peace appears to be at the core of Trump’s survival strategy. War is Trump’s comfort zone.
From his first day in office, the American president has not missed an opportunity to threaten global conflict. He provoked Iran, he enraged North Korea and now he aims to upset the Palestinians. Ostensibly deprived North Korea was highly functional in countering American aggression. It took Kim Jong-un’s engineers only a few months to present ballistic capability that could reduce American cities to dust. North Korea is too dangerous for Trump. As a regional superpower, Iran is also not an ideal enemy. Trump needed to launch a new battle against a substantially weaker foe. The Palestinians made the perfect antagonists.
War in Palestine is peace of mind in Washington. This seems to fit the Trump doctrine. But are the Palestinians really ideal for the role? Israeli commentators believe that Arab and Muslim leaders won’t side with Palestine. The risk is that the Arab and Muslim masses react very differently. The situation could quickly become volatile. And the crucial question that Americans must ask themselves tomorrow morning is how Trump’s ‘War is Peace’ makes ‘America Great again?’ It doesn’t. This is simply a survival tactic on Trump’s part. It benefits Trump and Trump alone.
As far as I can tell, Trump is doing a great job obliterating what is left of America’s world hegemony. Give Trump another year in office, assuming that the planet can take it, and American prestige and influence will shrink to nothing. Some may well argue that this alone makes Trump a positive force in contemporary world politics.
