I applaud this move if the DR does it:

Horrible, horrible, horrible. It made me sick when the US did it. I love Israel, and as long as the status of Jerusalem is undecided, this kind of pandering, reactionary move is a slap in the face to any possible movement towards peace.

As a former resident of the city in question, I heartily agree.

Well many countries have made peace with Israel in the middle east now. It's time for Hamas and the PLO to grow up.
Jerusalem is the heart of Israel and it makes sense all embassies move to be near each other.

Does not Israel say its capital is Jerusalem? That should settle it for the DR and everyone else. It's their country and has been for over 3000 years.

Iraq is likely to be the next country to declare their recognition and trade agreements with Israel.
We can only hope the Middle East joins the rest of the world and rejects the teaching hatred of Israel that has occurred for the last 70 years

It's great to see the DR on the right side of justice and history.

Except for the fact that the status of Jerusalem is at the crux of it all. Moving embassies to Jerusalem, while its status is still on the table (and will be for a long time) is a slap in the face to Palestinians. I am an observant Jew, and a proud Zionist, so you're probably surprised that I care about the opinion of Palestinians. But I do.I've visited Israel more than any other country (except France, which is another discussion of Jewish/Muslim relations). It's basically all economic. I think this discussion should be moved to off-topic.

YES. Move it to off-topic and let the fists fly with posts political and religious and not DR related. OH! Just remembered OT went bye-bye.

My opinion? It should be closed. It's just a matter of time before it will go off the rails.
