Cause for Celebration?

I noted your celebratory front page on President Trump’s recognition of Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital (Dec 6, Broadsheet).

Is this really such an important matter for us? Or, for that matter, for the U.S.? It will stir up a lot of political friction in the Middle East and may well cause some terrorist attacks, chas v’shalom.
