This is such a win for him on all levels. He's keeping his election promise, the Jews and the Arabs (he hates both equally) will take care of each other with American weapons, which should provide a nice boon to the US weapons industry and paint a rosier economic picture. Without him lifting a finger.

R54, I don't think this will spark massive violence.

The Palestinian Arabs have used the "terrorism" card for a long time. Arabs were killing Jews during the British Mandate and threatened to kill more, Britain capitulated to the threats and limited Jewish immigration from Europe to the land of Israel. Those thousands of Jews were then condemned to the gas chambers instead (Israeli Jews have never forgiven Britain and the Arabs for this).

And that essentially has been how we have approached the Palestinians. We don't do what they don't like because they threaten terrorism. Don't let Jews move to the land or we will kill people. Don't let Jews pray on their holiest site, the Temple Mount, because we will kill people. Don't put metal detectors in front of a holy site after a terror attack in order to save Muslim lives, because we will kill people. Don't recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital because we will kill people.

Enough. Enough. So long as we continue to teach the Palestinians that we will be intimated by threats of terrorism, they will continue to believe murder is a genuine card they can play. And they have played it longer than ISIS, Al Quedia, or Hezbollah. No more. This is sending a message we will not put up with their threats anymore.

R56, the Brits were instrumental in creating this clusterfuck, but not in the way you describe - Britain was the one that pushed Jewish immigration into Palestinian territory in the first place. The UK government was lobbied by rich Zionist bankers (the Rothschilds) to create a state for them. And the Brits agreed (as they love rich political donors) - controversially, even before Palestinian territory was under their full control. The UK Foreign Secretary issued the infamous Balfour Declaration and put it into action. British airplanes dropped leaflets on Jewish settlements everywhere - propaganda for Jews to move and re-settle in their "new homeland".

From Wiki: The Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of a "national home for the Jewish people" in Palestine, [bold]then an Ottoman region with a minority Jewish population[/bold]. It read:

"His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object [...]"

The declaration was contained in a letter dated 2 November 1917 from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

First Prophecy Against Gog. 1 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 Son of man, turn your face against Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. 3 Say: Thus says the Lord GOD: See! I am coming against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 4 I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws to lead you out with all your army, horses and riders, all well armed, a great company, all of them with bucklers and shields, carrying swords: 5 Persia, Cush, and Put with them, all with shields and helmets; 6 Gomer and all its troops, Beth-togarmah from the recesses of Zaphon and all its troops—many nations will accompany you. 7 Prepare and get ready, you and the company mobilized for you, but in my service. 8 After many days you will be called to battle; in the last years you will invade a land that has survived the sword—a people gathered from many nations back to the long-deserted mountains of Israel, brought forth from the nations to dwell securely. 9 You shall come up like a sudden storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and the many nations with you.

10 Thus says the Lord GOD: On that day thoughts shall cross your mind, and you shall devise an evil plan. 11 You will say, “I will invade a land of open villages and attack a peaceful people who live in security—all of them living without city walls, bars, or gates”— 12 in order to plunder and pillage, turning your hand against resettled ruins, against a people gathered from the nations, a people whose concern is cattle and goods, dwelling at the center* of the earth. 13 Sheba and Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish and all its “young lions” shall ask you: “Have you come here to plunder? Have you summoned your army for pillage, to carry off silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to seize much plunder?”

Second Prophecy Against Gog.

14 Therefore, prophesy, son of man, and say to Gog: Thus says the Lord GOD: On that day, when my people Israel dwell securely, will you not take action, 15 leaving your base in the recesses of Zaphon, you and many nations with you, all mounted on horses, a great company, a mighty army? 16 You shall rise up over my people Israel like a cloud covering the land. In those last days, I will let you invade my land so that the nations acknowledge me, when in their sight I show my holiness through you, Gog.

17 Thus says the Lord GOD: About you I spoke in earlier times through my servants, the prophets of Israel, who prophesied at that time that I would let you invade them. 18 But on that day, the day Gog invades the land of Israel—oracle of the Lord GOD—my fury will flare up in my anger, 19 and in my jealousy, with fiery wrath, I swear on that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 Before me will tremble the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, the beasts of the field and everything that crawls on the ground, and everyone on the face of the earth. Mountains will be overturned, terraces will collapse, and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 Against him I will summon every terror—oracle of the Lord GOD; every man’s sword will be raised against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment on him: disease and bloodshed; flooding rain and hailstones, fire and brimstone, I will rain down on him, on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and holiness and make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.

Third Prophecy Against Gog.

1 You, son of man, prophesy against Gog, saying: Thus says the Lord GOD: Here I am, Gog, coming at you, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. 2 I will turn you around, even though I urged you on and brought you up from the recesses of Zaphon and let you attack the mountains of Israel. 3 Then I will strike the bow from your left hand and make the arrows drop from your right. 4 Upon the mountains of Israel you shall fall, you and all your troops and the peoples with you. I will give you as food to birds of prey of every kind and to wild beasts to be eaten. 5 In the open field you shall fall, for I have spoken—oracle of the Lord GOD.

6 I will send fire against Magog and against those who live securely on the seacoast, and they will know that I am the LORD. 7 I will reveal my holy name among my people Israel, and I will never again allow my holy name to be defiled. Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. 8 Yes, it is coming! It shall happen—oracle of the Lord GOD. This is the day I decreed.

9 Everyone living in the cities of Israel shall go out and set fire to the weapons, buckler and shield, bows and arrows, clubs and spears; for seven years they shall make fires with them. 10 They will not need to bring in wood from the fields or cut down trees in the forests, for they will make fires with the weapons, plundering those who plundered them, pillaging those who pillaged them—oracle of the Lord GOD.

11 On that day I will give Gog a place for his tomb in Israel, the Valley of Abarim, east of the sea. It will block the way of travelers. There Gog shall be buried with all his horde; it shall be called “Valley of Hamon-Gog.” 12 For seven months the house of Israel shall bury them in order to cleanse the land. 13 All the people of the land shall take part in the burials, making a name for themselves on the day I am glorified—oracle of the Lord GOD. 14 Men shall be permanently assigned to pass through the land, burying those who lie unburied in order to cleanse the land. For seven months they shall keep searching. 15 When these pass through the land and see a human bone, they must set up a marker beside it, until the gravediggers bury it in the Valley of Hamon-Gog. 16 Also the name of the city is Hamonah. Thus the land will be cleansed.

17 As for you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD: Say to birds of every kind and to every wild beast: “Assemble! Come from all sides for the sacrifice I am making for you, a great slaughter on the mountains of Israel. You shall eat flesh and drink blood! 18 You shall eat the flesh of warriors and drink the blood of the princes of the earth: rams, lambs, and goats, bulls and fatlings from Bashan, all of them. 19 From the sacrifice I slaughtered for you, you shall eat fat until you are sated and drink blood until you are drunk. 20 At my table you shall be sated with horse and rider, with warrior and soldier of every kind—oracle of the Lord GOD.

Israel’s Return.

21 Then I will display my glory among the nations, and all the nations will see the judgment I executed, the hand I laid upon them. 22 From that day forward the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD, their God. 23 The nations shall know that the house of Israel went into exile because of its sins. Because they betrayed me, I hid my face from them, handing them over to their foes, so they all fell by the sword. 24 According to their defilement and their crimes I dealt with them, hiding my face from them.

25 Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD: Now I will restore the fortunes of Jacob and take pity on the whole house of Israel; I am zealous for my holy name. 26 They will forget their shame and all the infidelities they committed against me when they live securely on their own land with no one to frighten them. 27 When I bring them back from the nations and gather them from the lands of their enemies, I will show my holiness through them in the sight of many nations. 28 Thus they shall know that I, the LORD, am their God, since I who exiled them among the nations will gather them back to their land, not leaving any of them behind. 29 I will no longer hide my face from them once I pour out my spirit upon the house of Israel—oracle of the Lord GOD.

In the 2nd century CE, the last attempt of the Jews to achieve independence from the Roman Empire ended with the well-known event of Masada, that is historically documented and universally recognized as the fact that determined the Jewish Diaspora in a definitive way. The Land where these things happened was until then the province known as Judæa, and there is no mention of any place called "Palestine" before that time. The Roman emperor Hadrian was utterly upset with the Jewish Nation and wanted to erase the name of Israel and Judah from the face of the Earth, so that there would be no memory of the country that belonged to that rebel people. He decided to replace the denomination of that Roman province and resorted to ancient history in order to find a name that might appear appropriate, and found that an extinct people that was unknown in Roman times, called "Philistines", was once dwelling in that area and were enemies of the Israelites. Therefore, according to Latin spelling, he invented the new name: "Palæstina", a name that would be also hateful for the Jews as it reminded them their old foes. He did so with the explicit purpose of effacing any trace of Jewish history. Ancient Romans, as well as modern Palestinians, have fulfilled the Hebrew Scriptures Prophecy that declares: "They lay crafty plans against Your People... they say: ‘come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more'." - Tehilim 83:3-4 (Psalm 83:3-4).

They failed, as Israel is alive and thrives.

You can't expect to go back and claim a land that hasn't been occupied by the Jews for nearly two thousand years. I'm no lover of the Palestinians, but the argument that the Jews have an historic right to that land after such a length of time is exceptionalist and wrong. The people who had lived there for four or five generations had more historical ties to the area than the European Jewish refugees that flooded into the mandate of Palestine after WW2.

Query Robert Fisk and read his article about the centennial anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. He says what others are afraid to say and I always suspected that Lord Balfour wanted to send the Jews to Palestine because Britain didn't want them. It was an era of massive Jewish emigration from Russia and Central Europe in 1917 and many wanted to head for England. This was their way of saying no.

As Friedman points out in his NYTimes Column today, Trump, the deal maker, gave this away without a deal at all.

Trump gave it up and a deal to jumpstart the peace process was lost.

The Zionists terrorists were the ones who used violence to get Israel established... blowing up the King David Hotel, for instance. The Zionists turned Palestinians out of their homes and expect the world will see them as the righteous ones, just because they were victims of Hitler's Germany. It doesn't work like that. Just because you were the victims of one terrorist regime does not give you the fucking right to establish other to terrorise a whole people in turn. You depraved, sick hypocrites.

The Democrats don't control Congress. A few of them did submit Articles of Impeachment. It was, of course, voted down. Congressional Republicans are simply not going to impeach him, at least not until their base decides it's time for him to go. At the moment, the Republican base is still very firmly in Trump's camp, so you can expect precisely zero action from Republicans any time soon.

Israel has the tapes of Trump in Jeffrey Epstein's mansions, just like Israel has the tapes of Bill Clinton, and possibly even Hillary as well.

It's called blackmail. The only reason Trump was allowed to run, and given so much media coverage, is because Trump is completely under the thumb of the Jewish mafia.

And notice how even Bernie Sanders hasn't said a word about Trump and Jerusalem. EVERY senator supports this Israel-first move, because ANY senator would be crushed if they didn't.

And Bernie is as rabid an Israel-firster as Sheldon Adelson, which is why Bernie pretends that there's no such thing as Israel-firsters, and that's why Bernie talks about the Koch brothers all the time but not Adelson and Mercer and all the other Jewish billionaires.

Jeff Goldberg of the New Yorker served up the best quote ever on how AIPAC’s signature gathering operation and how much Congressional thought goes into each signature.

AIPAC’s leaders can be immoderately frank about the group’s influence. At dinner that night with Steven Rosen, I mentioned a controversy that had enveloped AIPAC in 1992. David Steiner, a New Jersey real-estate developer who was then serving as AIPAC’s president, was caught on tape boasting that he had “cut a deal” with the Administration of George H. W. Bush to provide more aid to Israel. Steiner also said that he was “negotiating” with the incoming Clinton Administration over the appointment of a pro-Israel Secretary of State. “We have a dozen people in his”—Clinton’s—“headquarters . . . and they are all going to get big jobs,” Steiner said. Soon after the tape’s existence was disclosed, Steiner resigned his post. I asked Rosen if AIPAC suffered a loss of influence after the Steiner affair. A half smile appeared on his face, and he pushed a napkin across the table. “You see this napkin?” he said. “In twenty-four hours, we could have the signatures of seventy senators on this napkin.”

Jewish Daily Forward:

Is Bernie Sanders a Lefty on Everything Except for Israel? by Josh Nathan-Kazis

by Anonymousreply 137Last Thursday at 9:07 AM

The biggest Republican donor, Sheldon Adelson admitted flatly that he's an Israel-firster.

And yet Bernie Sanders pretends that there's no such thing as an Israel-firster, and rarely mentions Sheldon Adelson at all.

The only reason Bernie Sanders would pretend there's no such thing as an Israel-firster is because he is one himself. And there's evidence to support that, including the fact that Bernie moved to Israel the day he graduated from college.

Adelson: “I am not Israeli. The uniform that I wore in the military, unfortunately, was not an Israeli uniform. It was an American uniform, although my wife was in the IDF and one of my daughters was in the IDF … our two little boys, one of whom will be bar mitzvahed tomorrow, hopefully he’ll come back– his hobby is shooting – and he’ll come back and be a sniper for the IDF,” Adelson said at the event.

“All we care about is being good Zionists, being good citizens of Israel, because even though I am not Israeli born, Israel is in my heart,” he said toward the end of his talk."

R78, you made a comparison to the Jews and the Native Americans. Both were indigienous to their respective homeland.

The important difference is this. The Jews are the only people who have ever had a independent nation in that land. That land never became a sovereign independent country like America did. It was always occupied by other foreign powers (The Romans, Babylonians, Ottomans, British). The reason why the nations of the world supported Israel is because the Jewish people are the only people for whom that land was their independent national homeland. They have a unique claim to that land. There was never a "Palestinian state". So it isn't like Indians trying to take land from American citizens, because there was no "Palestinian citizens". There were Jews and Arabs living under the control of other powers. The Jews were willing to create a sovereign state for themselves living next to something the Arabs never had before: a sovereign independent nation for their people. The Arabs refused sovereignty (chose war for Allah) and have been suffering ever since.

I don't feel sorry. Tibetans and Kurds and other groups who actually WANT independence would give anything for the opportunities offered to the Palestinian Arabs. And the Arabs don't care.

by Anonymousreply 151Last Thursday at 10:22 AM

The Jews claim to Palestine is based in superstition and mythology. They lost that land to the Romans 2,000 years ago. If they have a supernatural right to that land, their god should have made it evident to everyone on the planet. Their god couldn't even be bothered to save them from a madman with a funny little mustache.

by Anonymousreply 152Last Thursday at 10:51 AM

Paleswinians' claim to anything is based on the ramblings of a racist pedophile, and the Romans fell after they adopted Christianity and banned homosexuality. That Reich that was supposed to last a thousand years didn't even last as long as the State of Israel that grew in its wake and whose continued existence with Jerusalem as its capital is the world's reparations for its genocidal racism and blasphemy towards the Jewish people. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Israel is the ancestral homeland of the Jews. We are the indigenous people of that land. It is you who stole it from us and we are taking it back as reparations for your racism, sexism, antisemitsm, homophobia, and ableism. If you attempt to seize Jewish land from Jews any more, we will retaliate by taking back everything you stole from your superiors because you were too fucking lazy to pick your own cotton and not smart enough to figure out how to grow it on land you didn't steal from people darker than you.

The Jewish God is God. To not be Jewish makes you no better than a Nazi at this point.

by Anonymousreply 176Last Friday at 3:27 PM

When Jerusalem was divided for only 19 years, it was horrible. The Jews had one half, the Muslims got the other half. Tragically, the Muslims captured the half where all the "good stuff" is (i.e. holy sites, old city, etc).

They ethnically cleansed that half of every Jew, kicked them all out. They destroyed ancient synagogues, Jews were not allowed to access their holy sites like Western Wall, The Temple Mount, and the Mount of Olives. Christians were heavily restricted in their pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Christians were forced to teach the Quaran in schools there. The worst part is they took ancient gravestones of Jews (and other artifacts proving Jewish claim there) and used them for road pavements and latrines.

It was disgusting. Then when Israel won the eastern part of Jerusalem in 1967, you are damn right they reunified it and restored Jerusalem to what it is meant to be. And today, every religion has access to their holy sites, and every religious group is welcome to visit. Hindus visiting the Holy Church, Buddhist monks going to the Western Wall. Because of Israel. Because it is the holiest city to the Jews and they care about the most.

Trump is a dipshit, but Obama, Bush, and Bill Clinton had said the same thing when running. Jerusalem has to remain Israel's capital.

The Muslims will NEVER get control of Jerusalem again. Ever. Look how they treat Mecca and Medina (Oh right, non Muslims are not allowed into those cities).
