Should President Trump Have Moved the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?

by Chris Black

Following President Trump’s decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, it is now basically all out war on the border between Gaza and Israel. Israel is today celebrating its 70th anniversary as a sovereign/independent nation and in the same time is facing a huge Palestinian uprising.  Ivanka and Jared are now in Jerusalem, along with US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, to commemorate the official opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem (prior to that, we only had a consulate in Jerusalem). President Trump announced months ago that he’s going to fulfill his campaign promise, acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The thing is that Israel as a sovereign nation has the right to determine its own capital, and this is the reality: not Tel Aviv, but Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish state and of the state of Israel.

Israel’s Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and many dignitaries were there, very enthusiastic as you may imagine, wildly applauding the official opening of the US Embassy, which by the way, as many had predicted,  would be taken years to open instead of months. However, Trump delivered once again, on time and under budget. In response, the Palestinians are now waging another mother of all Intifadas: 35,000 Palestinian protesters were targeting 12 key posts along the border between Gaza and Israel. According to Israeli intelligence, several Palestinians tried to detonate an IED, seeking to kill IDF troops. The terrorists were shot dead. Israelis deployed gas canisters, trying to disperse the protesters, yet the protesters stayed defiant, refusing to leave, shouting “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” (by the way, the US still pays a lot of money to Palestinian Authority, basically funding terrorism).  They were throwing rocks, projectiles and God knows what; in response, the IDF used both rubber and live bullets, trying to disperse the massive protests. So far, 43 Palestinians in Gaza were killed and over 1000 wounded by the IDF. The Middle East is exploding, while the Arab League is now calling for an emergency session this Wednesday, saying that Israel’s actions against the Palestinians are an atrocity and a crime against humanity, while Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in the eyes of the Arab world is illegal.

ISIS and Al Qaeda henchmen now called for a jihad against American targets in the Middle East and against America itself for the impunity of opening an embassy in Jerusalem. Turkey of all countries, which by the way is supposed to be our NATO ally in the Middle East, said that the US is a problem in the Middle East and no longer a solution, that it can no longer be a mediator between Israelis and Palestinians, because we have tipped the scales in favor of the Jews. So, we now have the Turks calling for resistance to America. Iran is now calling for global resistance against the US and Israel in the wake of Trump’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem.

What the images above prove is how much the Muslim Arabs of the Middle East despise and hate the Jews and Israel. For in the end, what are we talking about but an embassy in city that was the historic capital of the Jewish people, going back thousands of years, a city that is currently the capital of the state of Israel. All Trump did was to recognize reality. The fact that the Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as a future capital for their state, well, Trump has openly said: we’re not pre-judging that, that’s between Israelis and Palestinians to decide in a peace process.  What you’re really seeing is the deep loathing and hatred that is prevalent across the entire Middle East when it comes to the Jews and Israel (and Christians and any religion other than Islam by the way). This is why Hamas calls for the utter annihilation of the state of Israel, and calls for holy war against Israel. That’s why Iran’s mullahs keep saying they want to annihilate the state of Israel. The Middle East does not want Israel to exist as an outpost of the West, as an ally of America and as a homeland for the Jews. Ultimately, all non Muslims must be purged from the Middle East. That is their ultimate goal. And this is why for them, today is a day that will go down in infamy.

What’s most despicable is that Turkey, a NATO member we pledged to defend in case SHTF, pays us back by calling the US the problem in the Middle East, saying we have no business there, and somehow we are the enemy in the Middle East. The Jews have the right to their own independent state and self determination, and the right to defend themselves. And the US will side with Israel, because after all is said and done, the Middle East doesn’t just belong to the Muslims, it belongs to Christians and Jews alike.

Remember: Jerusalem was Christian. Syria, Iran, Egypt, Palestine, Iran, all the Middle East basically was Christian prior to the 7th century, when the Muslim conquest begun. Islam aka the Ottoman Empire (that’s Turkey today) also conquered a lot of countries in Europe (killing and enslaving millions of Christians, remember the Armenian genocide?), including Greece, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Crimea, up until the 19th century when they were finally repelled. And the state of Israel fought eight (if memory serves) wars with various Arab nations/coalitions since its inception, and guess what: they won them all. So, tough shit.

Speaking of today’s protests, the behavior of the Palestinians makes it impossible to attend to their grievances. All that comes through is barbarism. Apologists who try to blame Israel for such destructive behaviors are only fooling themselves. Why is it that Islam has problems with every religion it borders? Why is it they claim victim status in all these disputes? Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Christians, Yazidis, Bahais, in all conflicts the Muslims are touted as the victim by the left-wing mainstream media for some reason. And to think that the Palestinians could have had peace 7 times over by now. I guess they have a firm belief in stupidity as a virtue.
