The right thing to do

Reader comment on item: Interview: U.S. Embassy Move May Bring Regrets

Submitted by Phil Mond (Australia), Jun 15, 2018 at 20:24

Highly respected but strongly anti-Trump analyst Daniel Pipes has concluded a couple of his recent publications with a caveat of a sort: "... but I was so many times so wrong on Trump in the past that I hope I am also wrong with this writing". This article would benefit from a similar inclusion.

No less respected analyst David Goldman made a very public turn from being a moderate anti-Trumper to acknowledging Trump as potentially the greatest ever American President on foreign policy.

D. Goldman wrote that in making embassy move to Jerusalem Trump was driven by his conviction that this is the right thing to do - regardless of many immediate and short-term problems and inconveniences.

'The right thing to do' as a strategy - isn't it something that was driving Jewish survival across millennia?
