President Donald J. Trump is on a foreign trip meeting with Muslims, Jews and Christians in an effort to bring peace to the Middle East. The biggest hurdle he has to cross is, who does the territory of Old Jerusalem belong to? Donald J. Trump is the first sitting President to ever visit and pray at the Western Wall. Past sitting presidents have not visited the wall in fear of it signaling that The United States believes that the territory belongs to Israel. The Western Wall is a Jewish holy site due to its connection to the Temple Mount. This wall is also referred to as the Wailing Wall, where Jews weep at the sight of the destruction of the temples. Jews do not use the term Wailing Wall and considering derogatory. It is thought of as one of the holiest sites to Muslims because it is the location of the mosque, The Dome of the Rock.
Did President Donald Trump’s visit to The Wall show that he believes that the site belongs to Israel? If so, how would he explain that to the 50 Muslim countries he met with earlier in the week? Maybe President Trump will attempt something like King Solomon did, by offering to cut the baby in half. No matter what he does the mainstream media will not report the significance of this trip and his attempt to bring peace to the Middle East. They are more interested in the Washington Post’s and New York Times’ unnamed sources and unconfirmed rumors to spend any time on a real story.
