It's probably just a legacy account from one of his distant German relatives! :shifty:


That can't be true, the Trumps always said that they came from Sweden....

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

As entertaining as US politics has become, sadly it will take a dark turn today if (or when) Trump recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. With Netanyahu in power there is no chance of peace and so all he had to do was not make it worse. So what does he do ....

Jerusalem is it's self proclaimed capital.

That's contended by other groups with claims to the city (based around religion) - Palestine claim it as their capital as well. It's a key issue in the peace process (not going well with Netayu..)

Tel Aviv is Israel's current political and economic "main city" - that's where the US embassy is for instance.

Trump is going to recognise that proclaimation - which will antagonise Palestinians.

Edit: Here's a map (I think it's out of date with the size of west bank, but it's top google result and shows the principal) - it's a split city

If Netanyahu was not in power we would be no closer to peace to be fair.

Sorry editted my post a bit to try and make "they"s clearer.

Basically the US has been sitting on the fence (on this issue) between the Palestinians and Israelis as they try (fruitlessly) work out the issue - or exist in a mutually agreed detente over schroedinger captial..

Trump's now coming down firmly on one side.

But the repercussions of endorsing a Jewish claim to the holy city will extend to Arab/Muslim groups beyond Palestine.

It's not "constructive" to the peace process in any way.

That was plan A - build a second Jerusalem here in England so everyone could have their own one.

I wonder - when we finally get the superintelligent AI oracle that solves all of our problems, how will it decide what to do about Israel and Palestine. Gordian knot FTW
