A Disruptive And Dangerous Move

The overnight move by the President of the United States to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, and the move of the US Embassy accordingly, might have been a popular move with some of his supporters, but it is a dangerous and disruptive move in terms of geopolitics and the stability of the Middle East.

I am, unfortunately, not surprised that the President cared more for his own popularity than the grander understanding of the state of the world. Yet I can only hope and pray that this unilateral action on behalf of the US President doesn’t plunge the world into deeper instability.
