8 Countries Call For UN Meeting On Jerusalem

Eight countries opposed to President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital have asked for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council this week.

Sweden's U.N. Mission says the eight nations have asked Japan, this month's council president, to have Secretary-General Antonio Guterres brief the 15 council members.

The eight council nations that requested the meeting are Bolivia, Egypt, France, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, United Kingdom and Uruguay.

Guterres said after Trump's announcement that the issue must be resolved through direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians and warned that "unilateral measures" can jeopardize prospects for peace.

In a resolution adopted last December the council said it "will not recognize any changes to the June 4, 1967, lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties through negotiations."

2. Fuck'em

Palestinians have rejected decades of peace proposals and 2-state solutions. What are they going to do? Not participate in the peace process? O'really? And that's any different than today?

Time for Israel to claim it's natural border on the Jordan River and tell the rest of the world to fuck off.

Nuclear weapons mean never having to say you're sorry.

5. I double checked yesterday.

I was googling the capital of Israel and found Jerusalem. Who knew? It's not often that Trump goes along with reality.

7. Trump should follow this up with a statement...

...along the lines of “I hope this doesn’t lead to violence, as Islam can be very violent”. Remember when the last Pope called Islam violent? Muslims went crazy and caused violence in the streets over being called violent. Maybe he can get them to kill each other; peace brought about by all sides wiping each other out.
