Weekly Commentary – Critical Reject The Jerusalem Embassy Move Threat
Dr. Aaron Lerner 12 January, 2017
It doesn’t take an expert to know what will happen if President Trump bows
to the threats of violence, etc. and drags his feet on moving the American
embassy to Jerusalem.
Once Mr. Trump blinks on the embassy move, the Palestinians – and others -
will start their way down a laundry list of demands – each time threatening
violence, etc. if their demands are not met.
Mr. Abbas and Mr. Kerry etc. certainly didn’t intend it, but their high
profile threat may turn out to be the best inaugural gift Mr. Trump receives
as by openly and demonstrably rejecting the threat, President Trump will
show the world that the days of cowering are over.
