President Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

He made the big announcement during a briefing at the White House Wednesday despite warnings from international leaders that such a move could spark turmoil across the Middle East.

The president also says there are plans in place to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the holy city breaking away from years of precedent.

President Trump says he has instructed the State Department to begin construction on a new embassy, but it will likely take three years to complete the project.

He also announced Vice President Mike Pence will travel to the region in the coming days to reaffirm ties with allies.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem bars American diplomats from leisure travel through the Old City and the West Bank.

This comes as the State Department expects a rise in Islamic unrest after President Trump’s announcement.

The landmark decision comes amid opposition to the expected move of international bureaucrats from the U.N. and E.U. as well as the Palestinian authority and Islamic terrorist group Hamas.

The U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem expressed concern over the Islamic street rallies planned for Wednesday in protest of President Trump’s decision.

wow, this might make Muslims go crazy and act like animals..... oh, wait.....

Funny tidbit about this.  This morning Beck was saying this was already required by a law passed over 20 years ago, and they've been somehow avoiding enacting the law since then.

So Trump is actually only doing something that's been already done, through 5 presidents.

In 1995 The House and Senate passed a bill called the “Jerusalem Embassy Act,” which formally recognized the city as the country’s capital and called for the U.S. Embassy in Israel to be moved there from Tel Aviv by 1999.

Support for the bill was overwhelming. It passed the Senate by a 93 to 5 vote, with four Republicans and one Democrat voting no.

It passed the House 374 to 37, with 153 Democrats joining most of the new Republican majority that had swept into power in 1994.

Amazing what enforcing existing laws can do. I like how Hamas is calling for violence. When aren't they calling for violence?

This is a two day story. Some Muslims have called for three days of rage. Since when have jihadists not called for rage?

Like a bunch of pissed off feminazi, they're always looking for a reason to justify their hatred of men.

If it wasn't Jooos, it would be their ire over women driving in SA. Personally, I think we need to feed the fire, make them so angry they explode, give them pork candy, pave the streets with Korans, give out free rolls of TP with Koranic verses printed on them, draw cartoon characters of Mohamad with a tiny peepee being abused by children in Hell.

I'm sure there must be something we can do to make them pop.

Since they are raging each and every day, only three days would be a blessing.
