Whatever Israel wants, we in Ghana will go by that, because that is essentially an internal decision
While the Trump administration has been hit with a barrage of warnings that is stands to throw the Middle East into chaos if it recognizes Jerusalem as Israels capital, the possible move has garnered support among Israels allies in Africa.
Leading from ahead.
I bet he could get a few Western Countries to join him. Turkey will be out of luck.
Wonder what Poland and Czech think of this.
Nobel Prize for Trump !!! I bet a lot of countries in Africa are sick of the leftist and Islamic storm troopers.
This is such a thumb in the eye of moslems. Great!!
Each of these countries have more guts than all the sitzpinkler surrender monkeys in the European Union combined.
This is so cool!
No, a Nobel Prize is proof positive that youre on the wrong side (see: Barack Obama, Al Gore, et. al.). I will be perfectly happy if Trump never receives one of those phony awards.
I would be happy if he said, "The terrorist Arafat received that phony baloney award, and so did Barrack Hussein Obama for doing nothing after 2 months in office. Put your Peace Prize up where the sun doesn't shine."
What a hoot! Hope more get on the bandwagon.
Kudos to Ghana !
Doesn’t make any difference what other countries think. Only what Israel thinks matters. And it’s OUR embassy.
They're of the same mindset.
Some might say just short of amazing.
President Donald Trump - what a joy to write those words - is realigning old alliances and forcing the creation of new ones. He has put in raised relief the threat of regional hegemony stemming from a nuclear-armed Iran. In the process, and almost by the sheer force of his personality, the President is forging a NATO-type alliance among Middle East states, evinced by growing support from Egypt, the Saudis, Jordan, the Gulf States. That West African nations stand ready to follow the President’s lead in recognizing Jerusalem is a watershed moment which further illustrates the rightness of the cause. It is long past time for the U.S. to have had a President with the courage of his convictions, borne from an historical regard for the value of Israel as an ally - and an out-of-the-box approach to resolving the two-state question. Much remains to be accomplished, for sure, but it is heartening indeed to see President Donald Trump holding the lantern on high to shine the light on a new pathway forward.
