President Trump’s last twelve predecessors, going all the way back to President Truman, have promised to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Jewish capital by either locating or relocating the American Embassy there. Of course, none of these presidents ever kept their promise or had any real intention of doing what they vowed to do. President Trump, on the other hand, has kept his word, and for doing so is being roundly condemned. What a sad testimony to the sorry state of modern-day politics in America, where presidents are expected to make false promises and only excoriated for keeping them.
Unbeknownst to most people today, the world-wide hullabaloo over President Trump’s recognizing of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is based on an absolute lie. According to this fantastic fabrication, which has no basis in fact, Palestinians have as legitimate a claim to Jerusalem as their capital as do the Jews. However, the city of Jerusalem, which has been recognized as the Jewish capital for over three thousand years, dating back to the time of King David, has never served as the Palestinians’ capital city. In fact, there has never been a Palestinian nation in all of human history. 
Today’s popular belief that the Palestinians’ land has been illegally taken from them and occupied by the Jews is really a ruse intended by anti-Semites to turn the whole world against the nation of Israel. When Israel’s surrounding Muslim nations determined to invade Israel and wipe the Jewish state off the map in 1967, they warned the Palestinians living in Israel to evacuate their homes prior to the invasion. Furthermore, they assured the evacuees that after Israel’s destruction they could return to their homes, which they were promised would be located in a new Islamic state. Much to the chagrin of Muslim invaders and Palestinian evacuees, the nation of Israel repelled its invasion and vanquished its enemies in a mere six days.
Ever since Israel’s surprising victory in the “Six Days War,” a war perpetrated by its enemies for the express purpose of “driving the Jews into the sea,” anti-Semites have propagated the lie of the Palestinian diaspora and the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories. Of course, this line has been swallowed hook, line, and sinker by an anti-Semitic and antichrist world. Anyone in the world today who is found unsympathetic to the concocted Palestinian cause is readily and roundly condemned as an intolerant Islamophobe, despite the fact that those behind the Palestinians’ falsified claims to Israel and its capital city are anti-Semites hellbent on the total annihilation of the Jewish people.
In an attempt to add to the fabrication of dislocated Palestinian refugees, Jew-hating Muslims have spawned another subtle lie that is seldom caught and scarcely known. In the Koran, it is taught that the Prophet Mohammed traveled one night from Mecca to “the farthest mosque” on a mythological steed named “Buraq.” From this mosque, Mohammed supposedly ascended into heaven and received instructions from Allah as to the number of prayers Muslims are to pray each day. “The farthest mosque” was once universally believed to be the “Al-Masjid al-Nabami” or the “Mosque of the Prophet,” which was located in the city of Medina. It was certainly not believed to be “Qubbat al-Sakhrah” or Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock, which was nonexistent at the time.
Today’s Muslims, unlike yesterday’s, insist that Mohammed’s Night Journey was taken from Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock. By doing so, they provide themselves with a “sacred” claim to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, turn a once neglected and rundown mosque into Islam’s third holiest site, and suggest that Jerusalem is as holy a city to Muslims as it is to Jews and Christians. Predictably, our unsuspecting world unquestionably accepts this pure fabrication as the unvarnished truth.
It was the ancient Prophet Zechariah who predicted that the holy city of Jerusalem would become the hotspot of the biblically predicted end-time world. According to Zechariah, Jerusalem will become a “cup of trembling” put to the lips of all surrounding nations (Zechariah 12:2). It, more than any other place upon the earth, will serve as the instigator of this fallen world’s final and most frightful world-wide conflict. Has President Trump, unbeknown to himself, lit the fuse to this ticking time bomb and by doing so initiated the biblically predicted end-time scenario? Time, which may be fast running out, will soon tell.
