Prayer vigil and protest held at White House against Trump moving US Embassy to Jerusalem

Video highlights including comparison of Trump to reckless driver

On Friday, December 8 protesters gathered in front of the White House to protest Trump's reckless decision to treat Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the US Embassy there. Protesters were mostly Muslism but Christians, Jews, and members of other faiths also were present in solidarity with hard-pressed Palestinians.

One speaker called Trump trying to make Jerusalem the capitol of Israel a distraction from Trump's trying to make Washington "into the capitol of Russia." Many spoke of stolen land and settlement.

It is difficult to determine the motive of Donald Trump in this reckless decision to tamper with the status of Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. Some in the Middle East have said this decision "opens the gates of Hell." It is being reported that the tear gas was so thick in Bethehem from a battle near the Annunciation Church that people were having difficulty breathing 2KM away. Recovered tear gas canisters were marked as "Made in USA by Combined Tactical Systems."

Perhaps it benefits Trump's alt-right (neo-Nazi) friends to have war between Jews and Muslims, which at least one group (possibly both) has to lose? Or maybe this has to do with extremist evangelical Christians who believe moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem (which contains zero embassies as of now) will fulfill a Bible prophecy? The prophecy in question is Armageddon, and people like Mike Pence believe a "rapture" that removes them from Earth and takes them directly to Heaven while the rest of the world falls into chaos and catastrophe.
