Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed European “hypocrisy” and “double standards,” saying EU leaders were quick to condemn President Donald Trump for his recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital … Violence has erupted in the region and the Muslim world since Trump’s announcement. Terror group Hamas said Trump’s move was a “declaration of war” and called for an Intifada. On Friday, a barrage of rockets was launched into Israel from the Gaza Strip, most of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. One of the rockets was later found in a kindergarten’s yard in the southern town of Sderot, but caused no injuries.
So President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is a “declaration of war” on the Muslim world. Does this mean the “Muslim world” was not already at war with the United States decades prior to Trump’s announcement? It would be comical if it were not so tragic. And it’s only tragic because of the millions of fools in the United States government (especially Obama’s “Deep State” at the State Department and elsewhere) that actively side with the Muslim world, and not our President, who’s entirely right on this one.
President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital has nothing to do with history, religion or the Bible. It has everything to do with a refusal to cave in to the brutality and savagery of religious totalitarians. We are right to grant this recognition precisely because “Muslim leaders” oppose it — because “Muslim leaders” are the ones orchestrating the vast majority of the world’s violence, especially in that part of the world. It’s called justice and accountability.
And for one rare moment, after decades of miserable political correctness, the American government is doing what it should. Savor these moments while they last.
Israel’s government is not perfect. But it’s a beacon of Jeffersonianism when compared to the brutal and miserable alternative offered by the ultimate “religious right”, the Sharia Law fanatics who seek nothing but tribalism and warfare in place of the Western civilization Israel provides in this part of the world.
