Trump: Today We Acknowledge the Obvious -- Jerusalem Is Israel's Capital




Here's how Israel welcomes the news:



And here's how the Palestinians say hello to America:



Hamas also plans a day of rage (just one?) in Jerusalem.

Terror group Hamas is calling for a "day of rage" Friday, urging Palestinians to protest President Donald Trumpís plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

The group, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S., encouraged Palestinians in an official Arabic statement to send a message "with all available means" to Israel after the upcoming Friday prayers.

It added that making Jerusalem the Israeli capital was crossing a "red line."

Then again, Hamas threatening to open the gates of hell is kind of their "Hey, 'sup" greeting:



Hamas' allies, the US and world media, were equally apocalyptic.

On Wednesday, all three network morning shows were in full panic mode over Presidentís Trumpís upcoming decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In the midst of the collective freak-out, hosts and correspondents warned that the "dangerous" move could lead to a "new wave of violence" across the Middle East and even inspire "terrorist attacks in the west."

Opening NBC's Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie sounded the alarm: "Controversial Move. President Trump set to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel today. Israeli officials hailing the landmark decision, other world leaders outraged. Could it lead to a new wave of violence?" Minutes later, fellow co-host Hoda Kotb fretted: "It would up-end decades of U.S. policy and is already being met with warnings that could prompt new violence and disrupt the peace process."

What peace process? The one that the Palestinians have been pantomiming (and barely even that) for 30 years without making a single concession or even acknowledging Israel's right to exist?

Reporting from Jerusalem, Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel warned: "There have already been some demonstrations, they are expected to intensify, with Palestinians calling for three days of rage if President Trump goes through with it." He added: "Palestinians took to the streets to oppose what they say is a needless and provocative move by President Trump..."

Throughout the segment, the headline on screen blared: "Trump to Recognize Jerusalem as Capital; Controversial Decision Could Lead to Upheaval."

"Breaking news, bracing for violence. The Middle East on edge this morning. Protests erupting as President Trump prepares to make that major announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel....World leaders call the decision dangerous," co-host George Stephanopoulos proclaimed at the top of ABC's Good Morning America.

Talking to Chief Global Affairs Anchor Martha Raddatz minutes later, he touted "a growing chorus of world leaders warning the President against this move"Ē Raddatz helpfully recited their objections...

"So it's safe to say this has alarmed leaders around the globe, George," she concluded. Stephanopoulos agreed: "It certainly has."
