President-elect Donald Trump “remains firmly committed” to moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, his transition team said.
“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” Daniel 2:20,21 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Why, as a Bible believer, did I vote for Donald Trump? Because he promised to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, thus recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. No other candidate made that promise. When that happens, it will be the biggest movement forward of the prophecy time clock since May 14, 1948. And that absolutely gets my vote. Are YOU ready for what comes next?
“This is a commitment that the president-elect made numerous times on the campaign trail, that he remains firmly committed to,” Jason Miller, a transition team spokesman, said Friday. His remarks came on the heels of Trump’s nomination of David Friedman to be the U.S. ambassador to Israel.
Donald Trump Promises To Move Embassy From Tel Aviv To Jerusalem:
One of Donald Trump’s main campaign promises is that he would move the U.S. Embassy from its currents location in Tel Aviv, Israel, to the Old City Israeli capital of Jerusalem. See for yourself how the massive AIPAC audience erupted in frenzied cheers when he said it:
In a statement, Friedman said he looked forward to working from the embassy in Jerusalem.
Miller said that a timeline as to when the embassy would be moved would be “premature” at this point, but reiterated Trump’s commitment to the transfer.
Meanwhile, the Palestinians claimed that were Trump to make good on his promise, it would “destroy” the peace process.
“The status of Jerusalem should be negotiated between Israelis and Palestinians,” Saeb Erekat, secretary-general of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, said. “No one should take any decisions which may preempt or prejudge (negotiations) because this will be the destruction of the peace process as a whole.”
Erekat also slammed Friedman over his comments that it would not be illegal for Israel to annex the settlements.
Erekat said he would like to look Trump and Friedman in the eye and say to them, “If you were to take these steps of moving the embassy and annexing settlements in the West Bank, you are sending this region to more chaos, lawlessness and extremism.” source
