Oh come on! Now you’re going to solve the Israeli/Palestinian dispute? Really?

I have to say that I’ve really tried my darndest to support the President. I’ve congratulated him on his accomplishments and have even held back (well mostly) at blasting him when he appears to fail. Mostly because a lot of his supposed failings come from having to compromise with the lazy, shiftless Republican cowards in Congress.

But foreign policy is a President’s purview. Unlike the domestic side, the President is to be the tip of the spear when dealing with other nations. So far Trump has done a pretty good job, refriending Israel, meeting with the Chinese leader and taking a much harder line on Syria, Russia and North Korea.

But then he goes and invites Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the White House. Like Abbas is some sort of real President. That’s a hot one. He’s simply the latest Palestinian head terror facilitator. In that respect, he’s no different than was Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who paid terrorists and their families.

In 2002, Fox News reported, “In Tulkarm, one of the poorest towns on the West Bank, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council handed out the checks [totaling $25,000 each] from Saddam.

The payments have been made for at least two years, but the amount has suddenly jumped up by $15,000 — a bonus for the families of martyrs, to reward those taking part in the escalating war against Israel.”

Recently, the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs compiled an accounting  of the last few year’s terror payments.

“The Palestinian Authority’s [PA] legislation and allocations of monthly salaries and benefits rewarding imprisoned and released terrorists, and the families of ‘Martyrs,’ amount to $300 million annually. This financial reward clearly demonstrates the PA’s institutional commitment to sponsoring terror against Israel.” They accurately describe it as an incentive system to “kill Israelis.”

The Israeli arrest in 2016 of the Palestinian director of the “World Vision” aid organization in Gaza and official of the UN Development Program (UNDP) confirms this. The “official” was “diverting international assistance for humanitarian and civilian purposes to support Hamas terror activities.”

World Vision and the Israel-hating UNDP successfully diverts “about 1.1 billion shekels (around $300 million) every year as salaries to Palestinian terrorists in Israeli jails, continuing after they are released, and to the families of dead terrorists and other Palestinians who died fighting against Zionism.” They calculated that almost 30% of all foreign aid paid to the PA in 2016 went to fund terrorism against Israel. Naturally, a lot of that “foreign aid” comes from the U.S. – to the tune of $4.5 billion over the last 20 years. We are funding terrorism as sure as if the Secretary of State was handing out the checks himself. How stupid are we?

Yet there was President Trump, telling the entire world  that, “We want to create peace between Israel and the Palestinians. We will get it done. We will be working so hard to get it done. I think there is a very good chance and I think we will. It is something that I think is frankly, maybe, not as difficult as people have thought over the years.”

Let me state for the record, as hundreds, if not thousands have before me: there is no diplomatic solution to the Israel/Palestinian problem – and neither President Trump, nor any other leader will be able to facilitate peace through negotiation. One can never “create” peace when only one side desires it.

So let me end with this little nugget – one you have likely heard before. What will happen if tomorrow, every person in the Palestinian territory, the West bank and Gaza, laid down their arms and simply walked away, vowing to fight no more? Answer: there would be peace beginning that day.

Now what will happen if every Israeli did the same – laid down their weapons and vowed never again to fight? Answer: they would all be slaughtered and driven into the sea – every man woman and child – including those transitioning (sorry – I couldn’t help myself). Every Synagogue, place of worship and Holy site would be desecrated and blow to bits.

And on their ashes would be built such a grand Mosque as to make the Pharaohs of Egypt jealous. Enough said.

  2. So, once again, the only realistic solution is to stop the flow of money, which is so mind boggling on its own it makes my head explode.
    Oh, if only Cruz were our president. I could still weep for want of a person of with a backbone.

  3. So far Trump’s fan club has been able to ‘splain away his thoughtless, ill-conceived, dumba$$ tweets and remarks. They tell us with conviction that if you turn your head just so, squint your eyes in just the right way..angle the light just a bit more THAT way, you’ll have to admit he’s been right even when he’s been wrong—stupidly, childishly, impulsively wrong. I have also given him the benefit of heaping helpings of doubt [okay “Obama wiretapped me” COULD be correct since Obama was absolutely surveilling him and who-the-heck-knows who else in his campaign]. We’re told repeatedly he is brilliant though he sounds barely literate to me.

    He’s only marginally more knowledgeable about our form of government and governance than he was before he was elected which is to say the average first grader likely knows more…probably CARES more, too. Of course, the average first grader doesn’t have the level of narcissism, elitism or bone deep, kneejerk hubris that Donald J has. Though not a gambler by nature, I’d bet good money Pence and others gave him names of people from which he selected. His contact w/gov’t was as donor to electeds who paved his way. He’s had “people” who’ve dealt with it–HE didn’t. [No wonder he realized it’s harder than he thought, since he’d never ever given it a single thought.]

    His remarks on this were cringeworthy, embarrassingly so. His ignorance on this issue is at least as deep as on most others but I worry that his skewed emotional development leaves him gullible to flattery and also oversensitive to insult, a volatile man in a very explosive situation.

    The middle east [as in pretty much the rest of the world but a bit more so] has engaged in ongoing tribal wars for thousands of years. War was an annual event, waged for a season or two then back to regroup, rest and do it again next year. Peace ain’t gonna happen. Too many people don’t want peace…it pays far less in dollars and power than war. As long as war is profitable for those at the top in terrorist politics the only “peace” will be the ‘religion of people in little pieces’.

    You’re right, Brent. The so-called “palestinians” can have peaceful, prosperous lives just as soon as they stop being violent. Which means…ain’t happening. Their “leaders” will never allow it.
