Jerusalem is now recognized as the capital of Israel by the United States.
As of Monday, May 14, the U.S. Embassy has moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. President Trump made a promise to recognize Jerusalem and has kept his word, where previous presidents have failed to do so.
This has been a long time coming. As such, I praise this decision and believe that once was, is now and forever will be, for Jerusalem will always be part of Israel.
I would like to applaud President Trump and echo this phrase on one of the signs displayed in Israel: “President Trump, mazel tov on your decision to move your embassy to Jerusalem.”
