Donald Trump got tired of dividing America, and decided to take his show on the road.  With an obvious ploy to Zionists, Trump said days ago that he will officially recognize Jerusalem as the new capital of Israel.

The move has been widely condemned for myriad reasons, among them, trying to divide the people of all religions who maintain good relations in that beautiful city.

But for actions there are consequences……

The official custodian in charge of the keys to one of the most sacred sites in Christianity will not welcome Vice President Pence when he visits the Old City of Jerusalem this month.

“It has come to our attention that Vice President Pence intends to make an official visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and asked me to receive him officially,” Adeeb Joudeh, who is responsible for the keys to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, wrote in a letter on Wednesday, according to Israel’s Channel 2 News.

“I absolutely refuse to officially welcome the American Vice President Mr. Mike Pence at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and I will not be physically in church during his visit,” he continued.

“This is an expression of my condemnation of President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

Probably won’t surprise anyone on Earth that the Custodian of the Keys that will refuse meeting with Vice President Pence is a……..Muslim.  So, also not surprising his attitude toward a Trump administration member.

Here is a nice short piece and video on him.

The Muslim man with the key to the Holy Sepulchre Church

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is one of Christianity’s holiest sites – it contains the tomb where Christians believe Jesus was buried.

The keyholder to the church is Adeeb Jawad Joudeh Al Husseini who is a Muslim. He is not paid for this duty but says he is proud to have the job.

“We are here in Jerusalem, Muslims and Christians we are living together. We are brothers here,” he said.

And there’s this………..

Actions DO have consequences, Donnie.  Future acts of conscience may not be so peaceful.
