First image is of the UN decision for a Jewish State on November 29th, 1947.

Second image is of the headline that Trump informed regional leaders of his intention to move the embassy to Yerushalayim.

Between Ashrei and U’Va LTziyon during Shacharis, we say, "Lamnatzei’ach... Ya’ancha Hashem B’Yom Tzara, Hashem should answer us in our day of pain (Tehillim 20:2). The Vilna Gaon says that there are 70 words in this perek corresponding to the 70 years of the suffering the Jews will experience before Moshiach reveals himself. This period is called ‘Chevlei Moshiach’ - the birth pangs of Moshiach [Siddur HaGra, Lamnatze’ach, Likutei HaGra (http://bit.ly/2nxG73a)].

Similar to 70 years ago, when the State of Israel couldn't actually exist for another 6 months, the NY Times informs us:

American officials, however, said such a move could not occur immediately for logistical reasons, given the lack of facilities to house the embassy staff. As a result, Mr. Trump is expected to sign a national security waiver that would authorize the administration to keep it in Tel Aviv for an additional six months.

The UN did not do us any favors 70 years ago and Trump won't be doing us one today. They divided the land that the Balfour declaration had designated a Jewish homeland and gave 4/5 of it to the Arabs. Today, mark my words, Trump will divide Jerusalem, recognizing only the western side as Israel's capital, while leaving the possibility of the eastern side becoming the capital of a Palestinian state, God forbid!
