Trump's #Jerusalem move:
1. Distracts MSM from #RussiaGate witchhunt
2. Placates & pleases FP elite on both sides of aisle
3. Plays to his domestic base
4. Ends long standing fiction of US as ME peace mediator
5. Forces Arab regimes to remember Palestine (they'd rather forget)
6. Benefits #Russia at end of day as whole world looks aghast at US (even if mostly rhetorically)
7. Fulfills Obama's campaign declaration that #Jerusalem is undivided capital of Israel
(Yes, I'm old enough to remember that)
8. Has neocons ready to declare him the Second Coming
9. Has at least some potential to make Palestinian political re-unification a reality
10. Likely to start another intifada
11. Will result in deaths of many Israelis & Lebanese & even more Palestinians
12. Even further destablizes powderkeg #MENA (as everything US does in MENA)
