Do some people really want the apocalypse to come? Yes, including the Vice President of the United States. That is why the religious right wanted the US to recognize all of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Jerusalem was to be a divided city between Israel and Jordan. But the religious sites were on the Jordanian side. The city had been under arab rule for 1300 years before the British took over following WWI. At the time the capital of Israel was to be temporarily in Tel Aviv but eventually moved to West Jerusalem, but Israel captured East Jerusalem in the six day war and annexing occupied land is a violation of international law. They now consider the entirety of Jerusalem as their capital, again in violation of international law. Right-wing evangelicals believe Israel must control all of Jerusalem and rebuild the temple, located in East Jerusalem the area illegally annexed. So US foreign policy has been to resist recognizing Jerusalem and moving our embassy there. But with people like Pence in office, US foreign policy is not being set based on what is best for American interests, but on religious dogma! The US is not a theocracy, where public policy, especially foreign policy should be guided by religious doctrine. It is horrifying that we have been reduced to setting policy based on myths and legends instead of reality.
Why is it wong for Israel to move its capital? Jerusalem is de facto the capital of Israel, Israel calls Jerusalem its capital (as do most books and maps) but most countries don't officially recognize it. This is because Jerusalem is a holy city to all 3 major Abrahamic religions and plays a central role in the conflict, so its ownership by Israel remains a sensitive topic throughout the Islamic world. The Palestinian Authority also claims Jerusalem as its capital, even though they don't control it. If someone like Donald Trump were to change US Foreign Policy to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, all will be merry-rosey with Israel, but meanwhile the Palestinians and Islamic world will be very very angry.
So, will you work on Thanksgiving Day? Will you get paid extra? I will be working Thanksgiving and the day after. My workplace has a policy that if an employee's normal shift is Monday through Friday, and a holiday should fall in the middle of the week, he or she will ALWAYS be expected to work that day unless arrangements have been made well in advance to have the day off. Basically, everyone who wants that day off must submit a request and hope that it gets approved. Of course the bosses always get the holidays off. The policy doesn't apply to them.
Why is Trump claiming victory when planning and the start of building the Jerusalem embassy could take 7-10 years? No, it is the prinicple of changing US policy toward Israel, regardless of how long it would take. The policy is what the arabs will be angry about. They did not want the USA to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, as they still want it as the capital for Pakistan and the Islamic world. Evidently, the Arabs and Palestinians do not remember, they lost the war. ...and associated property.
What IS Israel's capital? Under Israeli law, Jerusalem is their capital. This is also true in fact, since it is where most of their national government is located (parliament, PM 's residence etc). However, no other country recognizes Jerusalem as the capital and all foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv. This is because the Palestinians also claim Jerusalem as their eventual capital (specifically East Jerusalem). The ultimate status of Jerusalem is supposed to be determined as part of a peace agreement between the two sides. It's been felt that acknowledging Jerusalem as the Israeli capital would prejudice those proceedings in Israel's favor, thus undermining the process. Trump, for domestic political reasons, decided to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital.
What is the meaning of this job description? LOL! A lot of people never realize why they don't get hired. A job application is a READING COMPREHENSION TEST. It's worded in ways to make you think and it tests your thought processes and if you can follow SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS. Now, to your issue...it's exactly as it reads: Afternoon Shift - with rotation if needed (the shift is the afternoon shift, BUT "with rotation" means you can be changed to another shift, if they need you on another shift) Forecasted paid hours per shift 10 (your work schedule is a 10 hour shift) Forecasted hours per pay week 30 (your work schedule is 30 hours per week, meaning 3 days) Employee Status - Part-time (you're a part-time worker).
