TRUMP: A man of bravery and moral courage!

We are big fans of the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro around these parts, and we wanted to take a moment to spotlight something he said yesterday about President Trump’s Jerusalem decision.

Shapiro appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss the possibility that the Trump administration might actually, finally move our embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Shapiro, who has never been a big fan of the President, poured praise on President Trump for his “political bravery” and “moral courage.”

It’s obviously an act of not only political bravery but moral courage to move the embassy.

But just to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — the absurdity of the U.S. policy suggesting that Jerusalem is not Israel’s capital has resulted in idiocies like the fact that my niece, who was born in Jerusalem, it says on her passport Jerusalem and then it doesn’t say which country she’s from.

Jerusalem is only important to the world because of Judaism; it’s important to Christianity because it was first important to Judaism; it’s important to Islam because it was first important to Judaism. Jerusalem is mentioned hundreds of times in the Jewish texts; Jerusalem is in the Israeli national anthem.

The culmination of Jewish history, really, was in 1967, with the recapture and the unification of Jerusalem under Judaic rule. The freedom of Jerusalem was only assured, by the way, because of that Jewish rule.

What President Trump is doing is not just a recognition of reality, it’s also an act of political usefulness, because all of the negotiations that have been happening for the past 20 years, for most of my lifetime, all of those negotiations have been preconditioned on stupidity, that Israel was going to give up its eternal capital, which is insane.

In order to understand how dumb that is, you have to think that for Israel, Jerusalem is about 1000 times more important than Washington, D.C. is to the United States.

The founders put Washington D.C. on a swamp because they just wanted it to be not part of any state.
