"In any event, bravo Mr. President for finally getting this done. Bravo Mr. President for once again letting our close allie (Israel), we have their back. Well done sir, well done."
Oh boy! The MSM is once again feasting on fake news! Not that the death of 50 Palestinians is fake - no, they really did die yesterday trying to breach the border fence into Israel. Why? They were lied to. By their leaders. But when you read or listen to the news, this carnage was all the fault of Israel. For protecting her borders. Kind of like the illegal immigration issue in this country is our fault, and not the fence hoppers.
President Truman first recognized Israel during his term shortly after Israel came into existence. Then in 1995, during the Clinton Administration, the 104th Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. This act authorized the movement of our embassy to Jerusalem. Why did it take so long? Fear. Fear of upsetting part of the "base". Even though just about every President since the act was signed promised to make this happen, they all (up until Donald Trump), developed weak knees and round heels.
Some on the Left are madder than hell (again) at President Trump for the violence which ensued yesterday on the border of Israel. Why? He did not do anything. He just followed our law. Ever since 1995, our law (by statue) said we were to move our embassy. So Trump did it.
Then why did so many Palestinians die? Some reporting have stated the leaders told the crowd the fence had been breached, and they now could pour into Israel. Hundreds stormed the fence armed with Molotov cocktails, rocks and slingshots. There was no hole in the fence, just armed IDF. The rest is now history.
My solution? The UN should get off their dead butts and find these poor people a permanent home. One they can call Palestine. My suggestion would kill two birds with one stone. Punish Assad for the use of chemical weapons. Take away a chunk of his land and give it to the Palestinians. Peace then returns to the shire - or not.
In any event, bravo Mr. President for finally getting this done. Bravo Mr. President for once again letting our closest friend in the Middle East (Israel), we have their back. For both of these, I will just say, well done Mr. Trump, well done.
