U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem, Just a Headline?

When American President Donald Trump announced his historic recognition of Jerusalem as Capital of the State of Israel and Israel's right o choose its own capital city, he was very vague about the moving of the embassy.  Blunt-talking Trump was uncharacteristically politician-like in the matter.

The other day, we heard from Bibi that the historic move would be this year. Technically, since the United States has a sparkling new large consulate in Jerusalem, the official status of that building with the Tel Aviv embassy can just be switched. Some staff would be reassigned, and the maintenance staff would switch signs. Israel is a tiny enough country for the workers to be able to commute easily.

Now, we hear from the news, that it will take three years for the move. And we all know that there's a big question about who will be the winner of the 2020 USA Presidential Elections. There's another question. Is the delay and tactic by the antisemitic, anti-Israel State Department to sabotage Trump's policy? That's very possible.

Stay tuned...
