The 24th of July 1922 the League of Nations voted unanimously by all its 51 members, the Mandate for Palestine. This Mandate gave the Jewish people the IRREVOCABLE RIGHT to settle anywhere on the territory between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, including the Golan Heights, to prepare their independent state. The United States that weren’t a member of the League of Nations, signed on December 3rd, 1924, under the presidency of Calvin Coolidge, a treaty with Britain to guarantee the implementation of the Mandate. “…Article VI of the U.S. Constitution labels treaties as the Supreme Law of the Land and instructs judges to enforce the performance of the specific obligations of the Nation’s treaties:”…all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby…” Though the 1924 Anglo-American Convention expired when the Mandate for Palestine was terminated midnight May 14/15,1948, the principle of “Acquired Legal Rights” as defined in the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, Article 70(1)(b), dictates that rights recognized and protected under a treaty do not expire or terminate when the legal instrument recognizing the rights is terminated. In other words, rights continue without end. So it is obvious that an American President has to obey the Law of the State concerning Treaties, and implement the Mandate for Palestine, concerning its borders of a Jewish independent state, and Jerusalem within these borders as its capital as decided by the citizens of this state!

Why does Trump have the courage and vision to cut through the cloud of lies and slice the gordian knot?

I do not know and do not care. What he is doing is long overdue and it will end an act of shameful bigotry- the international community's refusal to reflect Jerusalem's connection to the Jewish people.

Abbas is a meaningless toothless old gangster- he is way past his "sell by" date. Israel moves forward and the Palestinians finally pay a price for their intransigence- their leaders steal the future from their people and peace from Israelis. Well done, Mr. Trump!
7. Arabs have no business in Jerusalem
C   (12.05.17)
arabs are aggressors and imperialists who want to colonise the world.

arabs have mecca and medina and twenty two arab states.
muslims have fifty seven states.

the arab muslims started out with one conquered state and now the
fifty seven states they conquered and colonised will not suffice them.
they envy the sole jewish state; they envy the seat of zion, jerusalem.
8. Abbas is a blatant liar...
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (12.05.17)

12. How do the people of Israel feel about this?
john ,   USA   (12.06.17)
Is this a good thing? Is this a bad thing? What is the consensus out there?
13. Peeps settle down, Jerusalem has been our capital for quite
a few years before   (12.06.17)
IRANIAN JEW ,   LALA LAND   (12.06.17)
