Jerusalem embassy move ill-informed; not well-thought out

I think it's generally understood that Jerusalem is the heart of Israel. I also think that it is widely understood why the embassy was not relocated to Jerusalem. The reason is that it is provocative, and that negotiations over Jerusalem and the embassy were meant to be the final resolution in a two-state solution. To jump the gun was to show that the United States was not a neutral broker in Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations. I think it was ill-informed, abrupt and not well-thought out. It is really important to have a Jewish state, and that given the history of civilization, the Jewish people need a homeland to call their own where they are safe. The relationship between the United States and Israel is paramount: The safety and security of Israel depends on the U.S., and the safety and security of the U.S. depends, in many ways, on Israel.
