Let’s see: Pope JPII said the Jewish religion is the "respected elder brother of the Catholic faith. The Palestinian Muslims want to kill us with or without a Palestinian homeland.
If Israel controls Jerusalem, all three faiths will have full access to their holy sites. If the Palestinians control it, Christians and Jews will not.
Jerusalem is the ancestral homeland of the Jews going back millenia. The Palestinian identity only goes back to about 1898 and was largely fabricated by an author. It went largely unnoticed until the 1960’s
The Palestinians have lots of like-minded countries to go to that will welcome them with open arms. The Jews have Israel, period.
The Muslims in the area who later became “Palestinians” backed Hitler. The Jews and Hitler…well you know. You could say that’s ancient history, but the Palestinians’ recent actions indicate that they would probably do the same thing again.
A basic part of international relations is that you put your embassy in the capital city of the country, in this case, Jerusalem. We passed a law in 1995, signed by Clinton, that said we recognize that Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel and that we would move the embassy there. Clinton, Bush and Obama all made campaign promises to implement it, but never did.
I have been there. I will side with Israel every time. You will never convince me otherwise.
