    Default 8 countries call for UN meeting on Jerusalem after Trump's announcement

    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 said 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.

    Technically, isn't this a problem between Israel and Palestine? As in, neither the POTUS nor the UN can say, "This is now your capital!"

    Trump complied with Israel's determination that Jerusalem is their capital, that is exactly what Dr. Ron Paul would have done:

    During his 2012 campaign for president, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul stressed the issue of national sovereignty when he was asked about the "Jerusalem Question." He replied, “The real issue here is not what America wants, but what does Israel want. If Israel wants their capital to be Jerusalem, then the United States should honor that.”

    On this point he's dead wrong, as Israel doesn't exist w/o the US. Its a colony, nothing more. The actual noninterventionist (and only sane) policy is clear from previous topics. This isn't 4d chess anymore. Israel has totally compromised Trump's administration, only we have mounting evidence to prove it, instead of just his long-recorded doomsday cultist's obsession with the unholy land. He needs to go.

    They stood alone, in splendid isolation,
    And said it was their only choice.

    If we cut them off to fend for themselves (which is my position) then they would survive, whatever anyone thinks of how Israel was started they do exist as a sovereign nation and should be treated as one unless/until they cease to exist.
