CAIRO (Reuters) – Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said on Tuesday that the United States should not take any measures that would alter Jerusalem’s legal and political status, Egypt’s state news agency MENA reported.

He said the possible move of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem or recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — reportedly being considered by President Donald Trump — would be a “dangerous measure that would have repercussions” across the region.

    “There is a difference between telling people that they are following vs telling them to follow”. If you went to school and graduated in the US you would have been able to understand that…

    I’ll try reposting it now…
    The only people that doesn’t believe that Jerusalem is the capitol are the followers of Lucifer. God told Joshua to “go in and clean house” and because he didn’t we have this offspring. It’s now time to follow through with that order.
