Re: Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital

The US, as a superpower (at least until Trump totally scuttles that notion in the eyes of the international community either by continuing to suck up to Putin and/or through idiotic policy decisions), is supposedly a "neutral" party trying to bring the Israelis and Palestinians to a peaceful resolution of their decades long conflict through negotiations. No one cares where Costa Rica locates its embassy (it was in Mevaseret Tzion, a Jerusalem suburb, until 2006 when it was the last embassy in the Jerusalem area and is now in Tel Aviv) because Costa Rica isn't mediating the peace process, no matter how dormant it might be. OTOH, people DO notice and care what the US does in this regard. Like it or not, that's how the world works.
