Authorized by Congress by a nearly unanimous vote in 1995, the U.S. Embassy in Israel is finally moved to the true Capitol of Israel in Jerusalem.

Yet another promise fulfilled by President Trump.


Israel begins celebrations to mark Jerusalem US Embassy opening

The corrupt liberal media is losing its mind because President Trump followed through on the promise made by every President since 1995.

Israel is a sovereign nation and as such has the right to defend its borders.

Yesterday Islamic Extremist Terrorists (Hamas, supported by Iran) attacked the Israeli border and were stopped by The Israeli military.

The corrupt liberal media, led by the Jew-hating NYT portrayed the Islamic Extremist Terrorists as “protestors”, a gross misrepresentation of the facts.

The dead and injured Palestinians numbered almost 1400.

Israeli dead and injured 0.


Yes, they were strongly defending their borders from unarmed terrorists.

BTW, mule, when did you start copying Trump's random capitalization in your posts? For the record, it looks stupid when he does it, so...

Will have updates when the severe weather threat is done with us which hopefully will be tomorrow. Maybe I should put my hardhat back in the car.

Meanwhile more than 60 people were killed in Gaza, an Al Jazeera reporter from Qatar was wounded along with 2,000 other people and protests continue.

Trumpism - "You also had some very fine people on both sides". Famous words from Emperor Trump in the aftermath of Charlottesville. Waiting for him to pull that line out. Certainly applicable again...right?

Yes, Trump for N P P.

Yeah. Burn tires; put women and children at the front of the line; try to infiltrate the border towns. Then blame Israel.

Try to behave like that in Times Square and see what the police do

You really are pathetic. Don't forget that President Obama got Bin Ladin.

It's a different world in the Middle East; not talking NY. Not defending the actions, but it was all but predictable, and Trump's choice for embassy relocation was the catalyst.

Just curious what has Jared with all of his diplomatic background and skills achieved since he was tasked with bringing peace there?

It is a truly remarkable feat of ideological contortionism that that anti-semitic Holocaust Deniers like Muleshwitz can pretend to be pro-Israel. Or maybe they are in on it for the rightwing evangelical Christian-Israel angle. Who knows what kind of pretzel logic these freaks are into. It would appear that religion, like politics, makes for strange bedfellows. Bizzaro.

Or, hey, maybe it's just satisfying to have more massacres to deny, just let Israel blast the bloody crap out of the Palestinians and sit around and argue about blame, when there is no reason at all it could not be handled without bloodshed. I like Israel, a lot, actually love Israel, but they are botching the Palestine situation bigtime.

I suppose we should follow Israel's fine example and set up machine gun turrets every hundred yards along the Mexican border and cut them to pieces. After all, like Israel we are a sovereign nation and have a right to defend our borders, right? Is that where you are going with this?

Gaza is a way different story than Mexico re: borders. Hamas has a handful of terrorists armed with GrendesPipe Bombs looking to cross the border to kill and maim. As always they are mixed in with unarmed civilians to put Israel in a no-win situation.

So Israel's response is "kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out".

What else are they supposed to do? Let the border be breached by armed terrorists? What would you do if it was your family on the other side of the wall? Be more selective and risk "a few" deaths? Hamas puts the women and children in the front to shield the bad guys. Again; Israel is in a no win situation

How many Israelis were killed or injured by these people? How many Palestinians? Your logic fails. The Israelis fired on unarmed people killing and injufing men, women and children who were unarmed. If you find this acceptable, i suggest that you recalibrate your moral compass.

Unacceptable, period. This embassy bullsh*t is a foolish provocation. Israel needs to cool it. Of course they won't, but the U.S. should back off. Putting the embassy right on the disputed line was a bad move, possibly deliberately antagonistic. It will cost the U.S. a lot less down the road to choose a different location for a Jerusalem embassy, preferably as far out toward city limit away from Gaza as possible. Looks to me like they are trying to kickstart a huge war.

Armed terrorists? Did you read that on Infowars.com? Legitimate sources, like NPR and Reuters, describe the people as protestors, not armed terrorists. To accuse protestors of being terrorists is highly ignorant.

De-escalate and detain, like a civilized society, like a skilled military.

Hamas always shield the bad guys with the innocent. Again; if this was at your doorstep I doubt you'd accept some infiltration from guys with grenades. They are mixed in - Hamas uses its innocent citizens as shields for the rest. There is nothing new about this

This is just like everything else in Trump's presidency. Find something that really doesn't matter much in the practical sense (kneeling for an anthem, location of embassy, whatever) and pour some gasoline on the fire. In this case a lot of protesters got killed, but why should he care? For a day some Trump fans feel like he had some kind of important victory, although just about none of them even knew or cared where the US embassy in Israel was a year ago.

Our doorstep, being Mexico....The USA would de-escalate and detain, not fire upon a group of protestors, killing many who didn’t have weapons. I see you offer no link to support your claims that the protestors were terrorists.

I never equated this to Mexico. I'm being very literal. Your doorstep. 10 people are breaking down your door; 1 is dealy armed. You let them come in and then try to disarm the one bad guy? Israel isn't worried about a bunch of unarmed people burning tires. Its the Hamas guys who incessantly try to tunnel in/cross the border/contain mayhem.

Re: sources read any article in the NY Times that quotes Israeli sources. They all state that there are armed Hamas fighters with grenades/pipe bombs. Of course the NY Times buries this deep in the article.

I tend to trust the Israeli army intelligence actions. If we listened to Masaad re: bad guys crossing the border in 2001 the WTC would still be standig

It would’ve been a more accurate analogy.

I don’t see the logic of this analogy. Shouldn’t we be comparing instances of people trying to cross a border illegally, since that’s what actually happened? Your analogy is a completely different circumstance involving citizens of the same country. You are comparing apples to oranges.

I think you know that there were many who were unarmed. A civilized and evolved force would de-escalate, not escalate.
