Easy TM7, that move was heralded on the right as the greatest move since beating Japan and Germany in WW2.






And, exactly what difference does it make? It'll still be in Israel. And, since when does a country not have the right to put their damned capital wherever they want?

Aim small, miss small!!!

JERUSALEM has been the capitol of Israel since King David declared it so, and still is. MOVE IT, the godless ones will just have to get over it, they have NO ties to Jerusalem anyway, Jerusalem isn't mentioned in their unholy book even ONCE. CHARLIE.

I agree with this, now here is a question. Why is it that Americans and Europeans of the Jewish persuasion will call American conservatives/ libertarians anti-semetic, but don't call Muslims the same?

The JPost is not anti-Semitic as far as I know. And funny how pro-Christian viewpoint is now considered anti-Semitic by some.

And hardly since the collective Greek, Armenian, and Catholic offices overseeing the Christian properties said:-->

In a news conference Sunday, the church leaders said they had received “collection notices and orders of seizure of church assets, properties and bank accounts for alleged debts of punitive municipal taxes.”

Later, in a joint statement, the churches said Israel was waging a “systematic campaign against the churches and the Christian community in the Holy Land, in flagrant violation of the existing status quo.”
++++++++++++++++++++++++

AND THE DISPUTE GOES BACK 70 YEARS:

Barkat said the churches owed the city more than $185 million on certain properties used for commercial purposes. He said houses of worship would not be taxed but properties used as hotels and offices by the church should no longer be exempt. Barkat has been locked in a dispute with the government over increasing the annual budget for the city, where a high number of residents and international institutions are exempt from taxes for various reasons.

This month, an announcement from the municipality said it would start collecting back taxes worth more than $188 million from 887 properties in Jerusalem belonging to churches and U.N. agencies.
The dispute between the churches and the Israeli authorities also involves proposed legislation aimed at repossessing large tracts of land leased by the Greek Orthodox Church to the Israeli government nearly 70 years ago. The land in question, which now houses hundreds of apartment buildings and national institutions, was sold several years ago by the church to Israel.

.
Thankfully, the offices of Bibi intervened to stave off the crisis (for the time being).

Because as a Christian and Catholic you might have reservations about moving our embassy to a city that shut down (and still might) the holiest sight in all Christiandom. You might not want to give a nod to such policies and appropriations.

Aside from that....no prob.

Not sure Christiandom cares about the Church of the Holy Sepulchure; a few Christians might, but for most of them, Nashville, Rome, Dollyworld are probably of more concern.

And the city of Jerusalem is attempting to collect back taxes on commercial properties, which have been managed by Christian organizations it appears. That's not precisely religious discrimination if its commercial properties. The Israeli government intervened, and we're moving our embassy to be closer to that government which is in Jerusalem ... not to give a nod to the city of Jerusalem.

I guess I don't get too butt hurt about what a secular atheist country like Israel does with commercial properties. We can try to apply labels to them, like Jewish, but it doesn't stick. Their politics, their laws, their values ... on-demand publicly funded abortion for example ... don't represent the "Israel" of the bible. They have control of a highly contended patch of land - its theirs, not ours. We should treat them like we treat any other secular atheist country in which we have an embassy, no more, no less.

TNel....well yes and let's not forget sacred Los Vegas. But what the city Jerusalem was doing with a nod from the national government was "repossess" church properties using and old communist Marxist tactic, which is pay tax or loose the property. An age old purge. Best term to describe modern Israel is Marxist Theocracy.

Interesting to note Moslems came to support the Christian groups against the tax appropriators.

More interesting is the glib interest in so-called Christians here to counter what amounted to a frontal attack on Christians there, especially since the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is inarguably THE MOST SACRED REVERED SITE IN ALL CHRISTIANDOM. And remarkable to see some are willing to substitute a Marxist theocracy in place of this holy site and all the allegorical symbolism it represents.

And somebody must have called Bibi and told him to cut it off if he wants $5 billion and F-35s.
