Even Jewish American groups have accused Trump of ignorance and irresponsible decision making and warn of destructive consequences to his latest lunacy in deciding to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Middle East is in uproar with the Palestinians promising ‘three days of rage’, though it’s unlikely to end there. World leaders have been unanimous in their condemnation.
Quite how his best-buddy Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, will view the latest development is unclear, despite his recent overtures to Israel. My tuppence worth is Trump needed a diversionary conflagration to take attention away from the Deutsche Bank subpoena, all hotly denied.
The charts for the Palestinian Declaration (15 November 1988), Gaza (9 Nov 1917) and Hezbollah (16 Feb 1985) all look exceptionally uneasy in the final days of this month, as does Israel.
Trump’s relationship with MBS won’t survive intact through 2018 with undermining Neptune transits to both Jupiter (false high hopes) from February onwards and Uranus (irrational actions). And an even greater gulf from April onwards with tr Uranus square the composite Mercury, Venus and Sun, running into 2019.
