Israeli troops shot over 40 Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza during violent riots in response to “Trump’s move to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel…During the violent riots IDF soldiers fired selectively towards main instigators the military said…..2,500 Palestinians participated in violent riots in the West Bank and 3,500 Palestinians demonstrated near the Gaza Strip.”
In addition to protests on the ground, Hamas has launched rockets into Israel almost every night.
Yet Israel will surely be called “murderers” and “oppressors,” when the only “satisfactory” move that Israel could possibly make that would please and fully appease the Palestinian leadership would be for Israel to put down its weapons, surrender to the jihadists, and be obliterated.
How dare America and Israel not continue to appease jihadists and Islamic supremacists and allow them to dictate to the world what it should do, out of fear of their wrath and violence? There comes a point where one more lunch stolen by the bully is too much.
The Palestinian jihadists have done such a superb job at spinning the discourse to make them look like the victims that they have managed to fool the world into thinking that they seek a two-state solution and peace with Israel, despite documented proof of their ambitions to obliterate the Jewish state.
Muslim states have likewise managed to retain their practices of polygamy, forced marriage, child brides, sex slaves, murdering gays, murdering infidels, murdering apostates, decapitations, Christian persecution, FGM, and the like, while making Muslims out to be the victims of “Islamophobia.”
Now that Trump refuses to play their games and participate in emboldening them, and has recognized that Israel is really the bullied (not the bully), their days of rage have begun. Their renewed calls for intifada have begun, with their chants of how murderous the “Zionist regime” is as it acts to protect its citizens.
Remember also that Israel has welcomed in Muslim Arabs, while Mahmoud Abbas has vowed that not one Israeli will exist in a Palestinian state.
Appeasement over the decades has enabled jihadists and jihadist states to increase their ambitions.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) issued a statement “that Trump’s move in effect disqualifies the U.S. from any role in the Israel-Palestine peace process. The organization also asked for other states to recognize east Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.” The OIC has one goal, and that is to expand the House of Islam.
The inconvenient truth is that the whole peace process was always a fallacy and a show. How could any peace process even begin when one side is determined, according to its own Charters, to obliterate the other side? The peace process is an illusion that became a propagandist reality. The goal of obliterating Israel is in the Hamas, PA and Fatah Charters, and the PLO manifesto indicates that it was created in order to bring about the “liquidation” of Israel. Ditto for Hizballah, which is funded by Iran.
“Israeli Troops Shoot More Than 40 Palestinians In Gaza, West Bank”, by Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller, December 15, 2017:
Israeli troops shot more than 40 Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank Friday in response to protests over President Donald Trump’s move to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
Medical officials stated Friday that 38 Palestinians were wounded on the border of the Gaza Strip, three were wounded in the West Bank and in the city of Ramallah, Israeli forces shot a man who stabbed a member of their unit, Reuters reports.
“During the violent riots IDF soldiers fired selectively towards main instigators,” the military said.
According to the Israeli military, 2,500 Palestinians participated in violent riots in the West Bank and 3,500 Palestinians demonstrated near the Gaza Strip.
The protests over Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital are now entering their second week. In addition to protests on the ground, Hamas has launched rockets into Israel almost every night, though the rockets are usually so ineffective that they rarely cause any civilian casualties or substantial damage. A total of 15 rockets have been fired at Israel over the past week, but no civilians have been killed.
In response to rocket fire, Israel has been launching airstrikes in Gaza to target Hamas training facilities. The airstrikes have resulted in two deaths.
Plain clothes Israeli troops disguised as Palestinian protesters have also been moving among the crowd to arrest rock throwers in Ramallah.
The rest of the broader region hasn’t taken kindly to Trump’s announcement. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which represents 57 member states, issued a statement Wednesday that Trump’s move in effect disqualifies the U.S. from any role in the Israel-Palestine peace process. The organization also asked for other states to recognize east Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
At the meeting, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared Israel a “terrorist state,” and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu criticized other Arab nations for not condemning the U.S.’s actions strongly enough. Saudi Arabia and Egypt, two U.S. allies in the region, have been slow to get in the fray over the Jerusalem decision.
“It seems some countries are very timid of the United States,” Cavusoglu said…..
