    Probably not, but there must be a very real risk of attacks/demonstrations at US embassies from Morocco to Indonesia.

    Of course this will not bother Trump - in fact he will use it to his advantage.

    I presume you're talking about concession to the Muslim world and the OIC countries BTW.

    Wrt helping the Palestinian people have their own state, the Israelis have always been generous.

    But the real problem that has always inhibited progress is the 57 Muslim states, and this action is bringing that fact to the fore.
    Generous. Lols

    Indeed. Well, perhaps we are getting to the root of things, though I guess Trump will eventually back-track on this.

    Israel recognises Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel

    Six months from now this will be a non story....

    Hard to say. The Wahhabis despise Jews but they despise Shiites (read Iran) even more.

    Yeah, but Israel is not dealing with the Wahhabists. They are dealing with those elements of the Royals including the current king who have demonstrated their willingness to confront the powerful wahhabi clerics and wealthy radical families like the bin ladens. In case you missed it, they have many of them imprisoned in a hotel at the moment.
