– What changed with Trump’s Jerusalem announcement?
– #metoo – a global response to sexual harassment

11 December 2017. A World to Win News Service. U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has been seen by too many people as “ego driven” or otherwise irrational, an attempt to distract from his roiling political and legal challenges.

In fact, it was another of his campaign promises that too few liberals took seriously.

Unfortunately, many people saw this turn of events as an anomaly in a self-correcting system.

The four parties that have governed Germany in various combinations since the War had held out hope that by making concessions to AfD’s anti-immigration demands, they could undercut AfD’s appeal, shore up the political centre and prevent further polarisation.
