The one thing no one seems to mention is why a U.S. ambassador to Israel would want to sit in their new office located in Jerusalem. This is like painting yourself with a bulls eye with one big red dot in the center. Active duty will gather the protection of military militia on every corner of the embassy. Missile interceptors would be firmly planted at the embassy's front door. What a great work environment for a bomb shelter in place.
Let's see...how about standing in front of the new U.S. embassy sign and doing a photo shoot. Yeah, right, we'll see how long this person lasts in front of a camera. They will be hunted down like a duck in season. How much money would this person have to demand to act as a living target.
Then of course there is the wee bit problem with the embassy itself. How many rockets does it take to take down one building? I don't know but you can ask all the Muslim national leaders who may have the answer.
God doesn't need anyone to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel's property. You don't have to remind God of anything. This could be the jealous eye that turns on Israel and makes her an enemy to all nations. Of course the anti-Christ will come in peacefully and end up declaring himself to be god when he sits in the temple.
Matthew 24:15-22 (KJV)
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
ISRAEL BOOSTS TROOPS FOLLOWING TRUMP ANNOUNCEMENT, PALESTINIAN RAGE

Extra battalions placed on ready across the West Bank.
Following an assessment by the general staff, the IDF has decided to reinforce troops in the West Bank ahead of expected riots following US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
“In addition, more standby forces were defined, as part of the (military’s) readiness for possible developments,” the statement added.
On Wednesday morning, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot met with top military officers in the West Bank amid calls by Palestinian groups for violence. Eisenkot met with the heads of the IDF’s Central Command, its West Bank Division and its six regional brigades, and Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.
During his visit Eisenkot received a “situational assessment” of the area and was briefed on the “crossings, infrastructures and technologies that have been put in place to improve the security and quality of life in the area,” the IDF said in a statement.
According to Palestinian reports, clashes with the IDF broke out near Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip. Two youths were injured by a tear gas grenade and gunfire, according to the reports.
Palestinian groups on Wednesday called for protests following Trump’s declaration on Wednesday night that the United States has formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and that the embassy will be moving from Tel Aviv.
In a statement Hamas called for “day of rage” following Friday prayers and on Wednesday the group’s leader Ismail Haniyeh called for a new uprising and for the Palestinian Authority to stop security coordination with Israel in the West Bank.
"We should call for and we should work on launching an intifada in the face of the Zionist enemy," Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in a speech in Gaza.
Following Trump’s statement the US State Department called on all US diplomatic personnel to defer all nonessential travel to Israel, Jerusalem and the West Bank until December 20th. The State Department had earlier warned government officials and citizens from Jerusalem’s Old City and the West Bank “until further notice.”
