While Iíve stated in the past that I support Israelís claim to Jerusalem, Iím not sure this is the best move. There are still far too many tensions in the area and this is likely to cause more strife.
What are your thoughts on this?

There will always be far too many tensions in the area. Ballsy move.

Many things concerning Israel can't be understood fully without an ontological perspective. This is one of them.

It's obvious that this is not the best move.

It is not "Trump's plan" this has been required for a couple decades now, it is just the president has signed a six-month waiver for this requirement to be enacted. All Trump is doing is not signing a waiver of something has already been approved decades ago.

It shows more about countries who are causing tensions over this than anything else.

Whatever tensions this so-called move may cause will be just another piddle in the great waves of tension that have already been rolling over the region for a long time.

Then as now, there are many moving parts. Just for example, the outcome in Syria and a new leader with apparently new policies in Saudi Arabia.

Apparently judging by official reactions no one is happy and Israel shouldn't be either (SA, EU and others already condemned it...). The thing is that the "best" that happens for Israel is some Arab country now byes another piece of $100 BN weapons deal from the America and uses them to attack Israel. Apparently the US wins (or the american jews...like his son in law) but not the real, israeli jews.

You do realize that American Jews strongly support Israel and are one of the strongest backers of the country.

Only when it relates to Israel is it considered controversial to acknowledge a nation's capital is, in fact, that nation's capital. By acknowledging the obvious, it takes away one of the Palestineans' favorite stall tactics: arguing over the fate of Jerusalem. That matter is now off the table; next.
