    Why did Trump do this? One word: Evangelicals. The Evangelicals have a very... lets say, apocalyptic view of Israel and Jerusalem, and their allegiance to Israel is based on ye old scripture (basically religious anti-Semitism, whereby Jews are fodder for Christian salvation).

I see your point, but in my opinion, Trump did it because nearly everyone told him not to. And it makes him feel powerful to override his advisers and put his own stamp on things. I don't think this was about Israel or Palestine at all - this was about Trump's ego. Goodbye, peace in the Middle East, all thanks to an old man's fragile ego.

And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
