Brazil moving its embassy to Jerusalem matter of 'when, not if': Israel's prime minister

"Brazilian Trump" is at it full on. Meanwhile the apparatchiks at the United Nations are beside themselves. 5 years ago they had a solidly marixistish president running the show in Brasilia. Now that crew is legitimately in jail (or almost in jail) for deep corruption of the crony capitalist variety.

Now Bolsonaro is going to move the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem? How dare he!

The winds of change are sweeping through the world's power centers in a significant way right now. The question is whether the old order, based in continental Europe, can hold on.

Notice that Reuters has to toss in the "far Right" bit into the attached piece.

The Arab League had told Bolsonaro that moving the embassy to Jerusalem would be a setback for relations with Arab countries, according to a letter seen by Reuters earlier in December.
“Bolsonaro told me it was “when, not if” he moves the embassy to Jerusalem,” Netanyahu said on Sunday during a meeting with leaders of Brazil’s Jewish community in Rio de Janeiro.
“We attach enormous importance to Brazil, and Brazil in the context of Latin America,” he added. “This heralds a historic change.”

It would be a very important move. Brazil is a huge country with potential which may actually be more fully tapped if Bolsonaro can avoid the traps of being a South American head of state.

That's a tall order of caipirinha.
