For decades, the Muslim world and their useful idiots on the Left have attempted to de-legitimize the ongoing existence of the State of Israel with notions of a “Palestinian” people.
In fact, aside from the Romans changing the name of Judea to “Philistine” (translated as Palestine) to annoy the Jews, there has never been a distinct place known as Palestine, or a Palestinian people, language, or culture. But that hasn’t stopped Muslims or the Left from trying to wish it into existence, primarily through the UN.
As an organization, the UN has been co-opted by the 56 Muslim-majority nation voting bloc known as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
Among the OIC’s primary functions are the promotion of the fictitious term known as “Islamophobia.”and of course, to see to it that the UN passes a daily resolution condemning Israel.
Israel has a nasty habit of surviving and wanting its people to live free from pizza parlor bombings, suicide attacks, or car and knife jihads. How annoying.
And Donald Trump’s nominee to become U.S. Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman only adds to this annoyance.
Writing for ThinkProgress, Adrienne Varkiani bemoans,
It should come as no surprise, then, that Friedman doesn’t believe Israeli settlements on Palestinian land — which are considered illegal under international law — are an obstacle to peace.
Whose “international law?” The Israel-hating UN/OIC’s.
And what is meant by “peace?” The dismantling and destruction of Israel as the Jewish State, of course.
Friedman’s nomination confirms that the United States will be taking the Israeli-Palestinian peace process even less seriously under Trump than under past U.S. administrations. In the statement announcing his nomination, Friedman said he looked forward to serving as ambassador “from the U.S. embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.” Jerusalem is not the Israeli capital according to international law, and past U.S. administrations have not recognized it as such, arguing that its status must be agreed upon in negotiations with Palestinians.
Again, Jerusalem is not the eternal capital of Israel only according to the “international law” of the Jew haters at the UN/OIC. That past administrations have not recognized it as such speaks only to their cowardice in the face of the UN’s and Muslim world’s bullying.
Friedman has also called for the United States to “veto any United Nations votes that unfairly single out Israel,” labelled the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement as anti-Semitic, and called Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands a “false notion.”
Because a movement created to single out the Jewish State for economic destruction is so pro-Semitic?
The appointment of Friedman falls in line with Trump’s own views on Israel and Palestine. The president-elect has shown remarkably little interest in helping the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Instead, he has said the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank should “keep moving forward,” promised to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and pointed to the illegal wall separating Israel and the West Bank — referred to as the “Apartheid Wall” or “Berlin Wall” by Palestinians — as inspiration for what the United States should do on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Only in deluded, hateful minds is Israel’s wall there for “apartheid.” To those inclined to rational thought, the wall’s purpose, which it has served well, is to keep out suicide attackers and other infiltrators.
What is most terrifying to the Muslim world and the Leftists who serve their purposes, is that under a President Trump and Ambassador Friedman, Israel’s safety and sovereignty will be assured. East and West Jerusalem will become unified again as the capital of Israel, as it was throughout ancient times.
