This is the beginning of a very heated Holy Season in Jerusalem, the entire area.
President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has set off fireworks in many areas. Just a few of the remarks bot showing joy and altercations (what the left does best).

Betraying its obvious and long-standing antagonism toward America’s ally Israel, and coddling the statehood hopes of Palestinians (along with much of the rest of the media), The New York Times reacted with alarm to the breaking news Tuesday that President Trump would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel’s center of government since 1948.
Reporters Mark Landler and David Halbfinger already had the talking points lined up in their Tuesday afternoon, breaking news filing, “U.S. to Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital, Trump Says, Alarming Middle East Leaders”:
President Trump told Israeli and Arab leaders on Tuesday that he plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a symbolically fraught move that would upend decades of American policy and upset efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
Mr. Trump is expected to announce his decision on Wednesday, two days after the expiration of a deadline for him to decide whether to keep the American Embassy in Tel Aviv.
The reporters wrung their hands on what the Palestinians would make of the move, and promised it would set back the peace process (that the Palestinians have shown no interest in taking seriously up to now) and perhaps lead to anti-Israel violence (as if any excuse was needed):
