My goodness, what a fuss about what? It seems a pure provoaktion to invite ambassadors of countries, that do not - maybe yet - recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Well done, Mayor, now you got people eat the dirt and apologize for their countries, how bloody pathetic, you have racists against the Arabs again, you got the emotions cooked high. Meanwhile you could have known something like that would happen. Thats why I call it a provokation. And it works splendidly, now all the people who do NOT take part, cause their countries do NOT - yet- recognise Jerusalem as a capital are called Anti-Semits again, which is an argument one uses far too often. People who critisize Israel politics are not automaticly antisemits. It makes me so tired. I dont say Jerusalem should not be the capital, I like Israel a lot, I defend it against everyone who would critisise it, but sometimes I wonder, why some things cannot be done with brains rather than with bellies full with only emotions.
