get this blithering idiot out of the Whitehouse......now!
The death toll of Palestinians now stands at fifteen; almost three
Truly boggles the mind how something as predictable as the sun coming
up could “further the peace process.” The major news networks were
reporting the Palestinian protests up front on the nightly news, then,
about December 12th, suddenly no mention at all. I can’t watch all the
TV news networks at once, of course, but I did not hear mention of it
again until the 22nd. So how could a major ongoing news story suddenly
become no news at all, even when there were no bigger news stories to
bump it down? Well, if you don’t already know the answer to that, you
must live in a different country than I do. I would recommend getting
an alternative point of view—while it is still possible. Here

Jerusalem as capital: All the latest | Israeli–Palestinian conflict
News | Al Jazeera
5/15/18: In 2003, the United States and Britain, despite opposition from several other key allies and Iraq’s cooperation with UN weapons inspectors, invaded Iraq for the purposes of securing dollar hegemony, terrorizing a state that had nothing to do with 911 (shock and awe), securing oil fields, and because the State of Israel simply did not like Saddam Hussein for his past deeds. Of course, to sell the war to the American people, a pretext was invented, claiming that the state of Iraq was an imminent threat, colluding with terrorists, and producing stockpiles of chemical weapons with mobile factories.
Now, some might call every item in the previous paragraph facts, others might call them an opinion, and still others might label them fake news, but I believe the evidence speaks for itself.
Now history is repeating itself. Iran is the new “terrorist” regime that cannot win, even when complying with mandates. And this when at least two of Iran’s top scientists and one engineer were assassinated from January of 2010 to January of 2012. To my knowledge, none of the three were in any way responsible for the planning or execution of any terrorist attack. Was it the Mossad? I don’t know, but I also don’t know who else would be so motivated (Will the real terrorists please stand up?)
But that is only the tip of the iceberg, of course, when it comes to questionable tactics on the part of Israel over the past 60 years or so, some no-doubt only meant to provoke. It is greedy hardliners like Netanyahu that are the problem, of course, (the type that our current President has chosen to align us with) who’s pipe dream is surely to eventually annex the whole of the West Bank and Gaza—a little more ground for Israel, but an incredibly small amount of land to start world war three over, in my opinion.
As for this latest spectacle by the Trumps to utterly marginalize the Palestinians, I have to say—as a US citizen—very embarrassing.
The name of the game is, preemptively cripple any possible threat, not so Israel can live contentedly within its current borders (as recognized by the U.N.), but so that Israel can do stuff like claim Jerusalem to be its capital, build settlements, and annex land without worrying about repercussions. But I would never encourage anyone to take my word or my opinion alone; I encourage anyone reading this to study the subject carefully and go with what your gut tells you. But take heed, you may find cold hard facts hard to come by . . . and that’s no lie.
