You miss the significance, the power of Jerusalem.

Having been to Jerusalem twice and having a son who currently works out of the embassy/consulate in Tel Aviv, I understand Jerusalem pretty well. The fact remains that the embassy "move" was symbolic and not substantive - kinda like every the Dotard does.

People who haven't been there have no idea how modern, cosmopolitan and secular Tel Aviv is. Jerusalem, OTOH, is none of those, yet a fantastically interesting place. My son lived in Tel Aviv for three years and just returned there last month for an 18 month assignment after receiving an offer he couldn't refuse.

To the religious crowd Tel Aviv pales in comparison to Jerusalem.

And it is not only a physical connection.

And conversely, secular Israelis (a plurality) absolutely despise the ultra-orthodox Haredim in their midst.

Oh, so it was "God", was it? What an absolute crock of shyte. We're stuck with this overgrown used car salesmen because the check mailing Evangelical nincompoops were commanded by their imaginary friend to support him? That's as absurd as appointment to supreme executive power by farcical aquatic ceremony. Seriously? The people who tithe 10% to the Jesus Tax so their multimillionaire pastor can buy a bizjet to escape demonic cacophony on commercial airliners are now guiding our nations destiny?

We're fucked.

In a decade we will have 10 trillionaires and 360,000,000 peasants who are thankful that "God" has blessed them with a job that provides them their very own pup tent and a daily bucket of gruel. "We're poor but it's alright. We still have each other, Praise Jesus.".

Where is that "Puke" emoticon?

I had no idea. Very interesting. And it's very true that most of what Trump does is symbolic and not substantive. Thanks for the post.
