Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is dominating Jewish media, including our own publication.

The opinions are mixed. For some, it’s acknowledging reality: Every peace plan floated so far has named Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, final borders notwithstanding. For others, it’s a slap in the face to Palestinians. Still others are concerned what impact Trump’s decision will have on America’s allies in the region, especially those who have, behind the scenes, increased cooperation with Israel in recent years, such as Saudi Arabia.
