Iran Declares Jerusalem ‘Palestine’s Capital Forever’

A tale of two cities.


On Wednesday, December 27, twenty-one days after President Donald Trump announced the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, Iran's assembly voted overwhelmingly to recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Iran.

Iran's state-controlled ICANA news agency reported that 207 out of the 290 lawmakers voted in favor of the legislation. Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani said in an address to the assembly, "it comes in response to the recent U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in hopes of dealing a blow to Muslims."

President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital as well as beginning the process of moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem sparked outrage from the Islamic world as well as the pro-Islam U.N. The U.N. voted 128-9 in a nonbinding vote to declare America's decision to move their embassy to Jerusalem null-and-void. Thirty-five nations chose to abstain from the vote. 

I just want to propose a few question to my readers. Don't Christian's have as much of a historical claim to Jerusalem as the Jews or the Muslims? Why aren't our Christian leaders taking a pro-Christian stance when it comes to Jerusalem? Where is the Pope in all of this? Hmmmm….

Maybe next time you can dictate your own Capital, just not today, sweetie.
