Israel celebrates Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem

The Old City of Jerusalem’s ancient wall was draped with a huge composite US and Israeli flag as Israelis celebrated President Trumps’ decision to recognize Jerusalem as their state capital. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thanked the US president for his “courageous and just decision” as an “important step towards peace.” He added: “I want to make clear: there will be no change whatsoever in the status quo at the holy sites. Israel will always ensure freedom of worship for Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike.”

    It is about time. Previous Presidents gave flowery speeches to get the Jewish vote, but did nothing. As it is today the Reform Jews do not care about Israel only “Social Justice” which is a communist slogan to get stupid people to vote for them. I don’t recognize this world any more.

    Damned Saudis have completely cut funding for terror, Amerika gives us shit, no moneay comming in, plus now this! At this time of great sorrow, we shall turn the page.

    My fellow fighters, this is not a fail, quite the opposite. Israel was too small a country, let us dream big, for the whole Europe is in the reach of our hands! We shall change the PLO name in Black December and set the palestinian capital back to Tunis, where it previously was, with an open option for where the money is, Geneva or Munich, as a later move.

    Shall we start calling ourselfes eurostinians, so be it! Long live the Palestinian trouble, for we always got good profit out of it!

    Philistines never had Jerusalem as capitol. Ignorance, political self service and simple minded manipulation
    brought all this to the table.
