Couldn't agree more with those who say this is a stupid move. But the evangelicals are not the only ones Trump made this nutty campaign promise to. Over the years, the primarily jewish, pro-Israel lobby has wielded excessive influence on capital hill. More than anyone else, they're at fault for this.
This president and his moronic voters have just sealed a higher level of terrorist attacks on US soil.
I think far and away the main consequences will be felt in the Mideast itself. More will happen than just damage to our relations with KSA, Egypt, Turkey etc. You know, this will actually have a redeeming feature. It may induce muslims to stop their internecine fighting and turn their attention back where it belongs--the Israeli enemy.
The level of stupidity on display in our government has reached levels that are incomprehensible.
I agree absolutely. And I think this is an indictment, not just of the current administration but the whole system which enabled AIPAC and ZOA etc to become so powerful (can you believe congress is all for this??!).
