There will soon be a Trump railroad station near the Western wall

Trump is first president to ever touch the Western wall in Jerusalem

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-42494450

Begin quote

Israel’s transport minister wants to dig a railway tunnel under Jerusalem’s Old City and name a station next to the Western Wall after Donald Trump.

Yisrael Katz said he wanted to honour the US president for his decision to recognise the city as Israel’s capital.

The Western Wall is the holiest site where Jews are permitted to pray.

The proposed new railway tunnel and station would form part of an extension of a high-speed line from Tel Aviv that is set to open next year.

Previous Israeli excavation work around the compound behind the Western Wall, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary) and to Jews as Temple Mount, has triggered Palestinian protests.

End quote

The Jews helped Trump to get elected, as president of the USA, and now it is pay back time.

  1. I pity those misguided people at that wall. It is really the remains of the Roman Fort Antonia, NOT the temple.

  2. My bad.I stand corrected. None those I mentioned weren’t in the office when they visited the Western Wall.
    Trump is first sitting president to ever visit the Western wall.
    “George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all have visited the Jewish holy site, but either before or after their tenures as president.”

  4. “Trump is first president to ever visit the Western wall in Jerusalem”
    Is this a joke? A lot of (especially US) presidents have been there praying

    • You wrote: “A lot of (especially US) presidents have been there praying [at the Western wall].”

      Did those presidents go up to the wall and touch it, as Trump did? According to the news reports, Trump is the first President to go up and touch the wall.

      • You can find pictures of Barack Obama and George W. Bush touching the wall and placing prayer notes in the wall.
        Even some popes did the same.
