Jerusalem is not — nor will it ever be — the capital of Israel. Not if Linda Sarsour has anything to say about it!
#Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel no matter how many times Trump says it. He doesn't speak for me.

The thing is, regardless of what Trump — or anyone says — Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. It just is. And no amount of unhinged screeching can change that.
Trump shouldn't have had to "name" Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and in a very real way, cannot do so anyway.
Jerusalem has been the capital of any Israel with any national meaning since, quite literally, time immemorial.

And given Linda Sarsour’s virulent anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, forgive us if we don’t give a flying crap what she thinks.
umm, yes it is

You don't speak for Israel, so who cares what you think?

And you don’t speak for Israel. https://t.co/XuIKhN4IDb

Not by a long shot. In fact, she doesn’t speak for anyone who understands history (or human decency, for that matter).
It's always been the capital. You have no voice on this issue.

#Jerusalem was, is and forever will be the capital of Israel. You have no say in the matter.

You're right. He's not speaking 'for you'. He's speaking truth and reality. #Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Deal with it.

She is. Which is usually a pretty good indicator that the policy in question is a good one.
if you are against it. i am all for it.

The fact that YOU’RE against it confirms that it was the right call. Am Yisroel Chai ?? ??

She didn’t mean to, but Sarsour made a great case to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting, Linda!
Who’s up for some flashbacks?
