President Donald Trump’s historic announcement on Jerusalem last week is even more special when Americans remember how former President Barack Obama stabbed Israel in the back this time last year.
In 2011, Obama began taking part in further escalating the tensions between the Israeli’s and Palestinian’s by siding with Islamic terrorists over our strongest allies in the Middle East.
As noted by the Tea Party, Obama’s plans included Israel giving up large swaths of its land, including many holy sites, and the Arabs making “good faith” promises that they never kept.
Obama urged Israel to give the terrorist-supporting Palestinians half of Jerusalem, Old Jerusalem, Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and the Via Dolorosa.
Most notably, Via Dolorosa is the street in the Old City of Jerusalem that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion.
Obama’s degradation of the U.S.-Israel relationship came to a head on Dec. 23 last year, when he used a United Nations Security Council resolution to effectively sign over the holiest sites in Judaism and Christendom to radical Muslim groups. The Obama administration even played a major role in writing the United Nations Security Counsel draft that put the move into action.
A year after Obama’s treacherous move, Trump made history Wednesday by announcing that the U.S. would be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Trump said the U.S. will officially recognize Jerusalem and the capital of Israel, a bold move former presidents only talked about doing but never had the guts to do.
Moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem shows that Trump is taking steps to bolster the United States’ already strong relationship with the Jewish state.
Obama’s self-defeating policy toward Israel for years proved he was a blundering amateur who refused to see how his decisions to disrespect Israel and take their holy land ruined the prospects for peace and further inflamed tensions in the region.
Israel has learned that it now has a true friend in the White House, and this historic move by Trump solidifies Israel’s position as owner and ruler of the holy city.
After years of Obama supporting nations that fund terrorists groups across the Middle East, Trump has made it clear that the U.S. stands with Israel.
The rest of the world is learning that, too.
