German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Tuesday warned the US about the dangers of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel does not calm a conflict; rather, it fuels it even more, Gabriel said. Its in everyones interest that this does not happen.
Despite widespread international opposition to the move, Trump is expected to recognize the city as Israels capital on Wednesday. A senior administration official speaking on the condition of anonymity told AFP news agency that the president would make the announcement during a speech slated for 1 p.m. local time (1800 UTC). But Trump will reportedly also sign a legal waiver that would delay moving the embassy by another six months. [ ]
In Europe, the US proposal has been met with skepticism and warnings. French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that he reminded Trump that the status of Jerusalem should be determined during negotiations for a two-state solution.

Jerusalem: The Cup of Trembling for all nations.
Zechariah chapter 12
Germans, giving advice on how we should interact with Jews.
Thanks blockheads, you’ve done enough, we can take it from here.
Pres. Trump’s are as big as bowling balls and they are made of brass.
Germany? Were they playing, Horst Wessel Leid, in the background when making their warning?
Denazification incomplete. Needs another application
Calm a conflict???????? That is done by ending the conflict.
Oh noes. Now Angela thinks she runs US foreign policy
Just can’t believe how dense they are. Germans, telling us not to support the Jews too closely. Freaking amazing.
After the war, the US engaged in that for a mere two years, and then handed it off to Adenauer. He declared it “over” just three years after that, and nobody thought to audit that declaration. Sort of like Obama telling his corrupt executive departments to investigate themselves.
Man Germany, the apple doesn’t fall far from the generational tree does it!
I and II just would not work out.
Hey Germany maybe III will be a real charmer of a blast! /s
Sigmar Gabriel, stick your head where the sun doesn’t shine.
You have effd up Germany and the EU so much; You have ZERO, ZIP, NO authority regarding United States foreign policy; so, up yours.
This is the second article about Sigmar. Did anybody ask for Sigmar’s opinion on world affairs, or is he just mouthy?
It’s time for the Germans to get their asses kicked by Islam. Who cares.
The concerned Barbarians opine.
So who asked Germania for their input?
El jefe tiene covfefes muy grande
Trump has balls as big as church bells.
Why would we care what a Muslim country thinks?
