The reluctance to follow the US embassy move to Jerusalem is both antisemitic, as Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish homeland, and cowardly, fear of jihad terror.
The embassy move to Jerusalem has given independent-thinking nations the courage to challenge international jihad terrorism.

The tiny Micronesian island is one of a handful of countries following Trump’s lead on the disputed cityThe Micronesian island of Nauru has recognized the disputed city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Israeli foreign ministry announced on Tuesday.
The tiny island of less than 14,000 people sent a letter to the Israeli mission at the United Nations stating:
“The mission of Nauru has the honor to convey the decisions of the Government of the Republic of Nauru to formally recognize the City of Jerusalem as the Capital City of the State of Israel.”
Israeli Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz hailed the move, calling it an “important decision.”
“We will continue to strengthen Jerusalem and to bring about the recognition and opening of diplomatic missions and embassies in our capital,” Katz wrote on Twitter.
Nauru joins a small but growing number of countries to follow US President Donald Trump’s lead and recognize the holy city as Israel’s capital.
US President Donald Trump sparked a deterioration in relations between Washington and the Palestinian authorities last year when the United States broke with international consensus and moved its embassy to Jerusalem.
Israel annexed east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War in a move never recognized by the international community.
It considers the entire city its capital, while the Palestinians claim the predominantly Arab eastern sector as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
Nauru joins Guatemala, the Czech Republic, Honduras, and Australia in recognizing the city as Israel’s capital, though Australia restricted the recognition to west Jerusalem only.
