Lets look at it from another angle.

Both Trump and Nutanyahoo are hardly religious figures, one is a business deal maker, the other a politician facing corruption charges about to go to jail.

They both have something in common - Sheldon Adelson. The billionaire gave $millions to the Trump campaign to get him elected. Adelson also owns a newspaper that backs Nutanyahoos government. Nutanyahoo is under investigations for bribery and the investigators are demanding release of the audio conversations he had with the billionaire.

When you tease the details apart, this announcement is absolutely politically motivated and has no religious bearings whatsoever. This is hardly surprising. Trump made it to repay a debt owed to Adelson's donation. Nutanyahoo benefits from the diversion to his troubles.

The Muslims are only interested in East Jerusalem.

The Palestinians are willing to give up West Jerusalem if Israel will agree to peace.

So, even when the US agree to say Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it is still inline with its current mission, getting Israel to accept the two-state solution with the division of Jerusalem into East and West, with Palestine taking the east and Israel taking the west.

As such, Trump's recent statement does not actually give Israel what it wants, an undivided Jerusalem. Hence, this does not satisfy Israel and it may anger the Arabs. Trump is on really thin ice here.

I would not rule out the possibility he wanted to divert attention from the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian involvement in US Election last year

I worship the One who created me, the same One whom Jesus was seen worshipping in the garden.

Oh it matters. The Muslim Allah and the Triune God of the Bible...are
radically different.

1) It is in the language of Quran
2) Uniformity/Unity ( Otherwise ,English speaking Muslim will use GOD, Chinese speaking Muslim will use Prussa, Tamil speaking Muslim will use Kadavul )

Arab/Muslims will use Allah....their god...as in their Quran.
Whether Chinese or Tamil speaking may use a word in their own language but still refer to their god...Allah.

But Allah...is not the same as the God of the Jews, Christians.
