For more than two decades Congress has pushed for the US to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is, after all, the capital. It is where the Knesset sits and is the logical place to be situated. Except of course that the Arab world would rather than the embassy was in Tel Aviv or better still scrapped altogether and the Jews pushed into the sea.
The BBC clearly sides with the Arabs and opposes anything Trump proposes which today will be to do what Congress urges and what he promised to do in the election. Gosh, a politician fulfilling a pledge, how awful.
The BBC insists that this will annoy the Arabs and cause protests on the Streets so challenging peace. Those streets of course were the same ones where many Palestinians celebrated 9/11. Twenty years of pandering to such hate has not exactly changed any minds has it? Why not show some support for the only democracy in the region and the only country allowing free speech, full rights for women and LGBTs? And of course are only steadfast ally in the Middle East?
On BBC Radio 4 Jon Sopel explained why not. Trump "was urged by everyone not to withdraw from the Paris climate accord and he did it anyway" and this will be the same. But Jon that is fake news is it not?
Paris commits the West to cut carbon emissions while allowing the big emitters (notably India and China) to belch out more than ever. It is economic suicide for the West which will not tackle carbon emissions. The link between them and climate change is not proven so America was asked to sacrifice hundreds of thousands of jobs for a bogus religion. Many in the US supported Trump all the way.
So the statement "everyone" opposed his move on Paris was a lie. Unless Jon defines "everyone" as just being the liberal elites and the beltway cliques which, in his patronising way, he quite possibly does.
The BBC and the rest of the liberal media cannot stop telling us what an awful, intolerant place Israel is. Regularly mainstream politicians from the left compare its actions to those of Nazi Germany. And on that note, I am delighted to see that today it is Gay Pride day in Tel Aviv.
More than 200,000 folks will take to the streets to celebrate gay pride. They can celebrate it in a nation where being gay is not a crime. There will be soldiers in uniform walking hand in hand and there will be "refugees" from places such as Gaza walking happy and free. For back in Gaza, a regime supported by EU cash, being gay is a "crime" punishable by death.
So here is an easy general knowledge question or two:
Excluding the evil Israeli state, in which other Mid Eastern countries is there annual gay pride parade? Ok let's make that easier, in how many other Mid East countries is there a gay pride parade?
Here is another one: in how many other Middle East countries is homosexuality punishable by death?
The answers are ZERO and NINE. The latter is a bit of a grey area. In Syria you do not get killed for being gay if you are unfortunate enough to live in an area controlled by Evil President Assad. On the other hand if you live in an area controlled by either ISIS or by the "moderates, the FSA backed by the West you can be executed. The other eight places where it might not pay to plan a Pride March today are: Iran, Gaza, Saudi Arabia, ISIS run Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Qatar and the UAE.
So to recap, while the liberal Western press reckons that we need regime change to deal with the evil Israelis and even more evil President Assad, if you are gay and living in either EU funded Gaza or FSA controlled Syria ( aka the "good guys" ) you might not necessarily see it that way.
The abuse storm on twitter continues. The kids in Gaza are being used by Hamas as human shields for the rockets which at this very monent are landing in Tel Aviv aimed not at military targets just at indiscriminantly killing Jews. The West continues to fall for the Hamas lies hook line and sinker. Why will it not accept a ceasefire? I am not budging an inch in my views and bring you once again the excellent "We Con the world" video from the uber-wonderful Caroline Glick and her team at (the late) Latma TV. Enjoy.
