Riots Spread Through Palestine/Israel, Jews Respond By Firing Into Crowds, Hundreds Injured

I’m confused that some Nationalists are still claiming that this Administration is following an America first policy – according to them, everything the President is doing will help us in some way.

And yes, starting a Third Intifada by groveling at the feet of the Jews was all a part of the MAGA blueprint.

They tell us it’s part of some plan to isolate Israel, but just a year into the Trump Presidency, we’re still entangled in the Middle East, and just where do they think the Israelis get replacement tear gas and bullets from?

I seriously think this could continue to escalate – therefore live updates will be provided as soon as reasonably possible, and I encourage others to chime in the comments section if they notice something that hasn’t been reported on yet.

And may the Palestinians stand strong, for if they get crushed, guess what the next step will be now that they have no serious chance at a viable two-state solution…

  1. For the record I want to state that I agree with those who point out that the jews will never allow themselves to be corralled into Israel (and out of our countries). That said, there is a very effective strategy to promoting their zionism; it enables us to promote our own. Without holding Israel out as a homeland for them, they can (and do) scream ‘Holocaust!’ whenever the mere mention of separation arises.

    So, we should do what they do, which is play both sides. I would be careful about being too anti, though.

  2. Without the US and Britain constantly arming and fomenting outrage among the Africanized, violent, inbred, emotionally unbalanced MENAs, there would be only scattered goatherds throwing rocks at one another.

    It’s all about the oil, shipping lanes to the oil, air bases within reach of the oil, ad nauseum.

  3. Your missing the bigger picture. Trump is boxing in the Israeli nationalists by giving them what they have always wanted. Everything they do, and I mean EVERYTHING hey do beyond this point will be viewed as pure hypocrisy by anyone paying attention.

    It also provides cover for Trump in a couple of ways. He cannot be linked to the medias definition of the alt-right by being extremely pro-israel and it also allows him to take future action in the middle east without spending political capitol (if the need arises) since all parties involved are taking first blood (enacting violence) while we quietly pull out of the region.

    All in all I think this is an excellent move that not only boxes in Israel but pokes all the hornets nest around Israel that will keep them busy for a while, while we deal with Iran and its fresh cash injection and nuclear material a-la the Obama Iran deal that gave them Billions with a B in hard US currency.

    This was a smart move.

    • Why is Iran being nuclear so threatening to you?

      Trust me, if we were to stop trying to overthrow their government, and if we were to stop groveling before Israel, the Iranians would be our best friends in the region.
