Trump's Tragic Mistake

From Truth Revolt:
By all accounts, US President Donald Trump is a friend of the Jewish state. It is due to Trump’s heartfelt support for Israel and the US-Israel alliance that his meeting Wednesday with PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas at the White House is most discouraging. 
By meeting with Abbas, and committing himself to working toward achieving a peace deal between Abbas and his PLO and Israel, Trump undermines Israel. He also undermines himself and his nation. 
Israel is the most immediate casualty of Trump’s decision to embrace Abbas and the PLO, because the PLO is Israel’s enemy. Abbas is an antisemite. His doctoral dissertation, which he later published as a book, is a Holocaust denying screed. 
Abbas engages in antisemitic incitement on a daily basis, both directly and indirectly. It was Abbas who called for his people to kill Jews claiming that we pollute Judaism’s most sacred site, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, with our “filthy feet.” 
The Palestinian media and school system which he controls with an iron fist both regularly portray Jews as evil monsters, deserving of physical annihilation. Abbas’s PLO and his Palestinian Authority engage as a general practice in glorifying terrorist murderers. 
As has been widely reported in recent weeks, his PA and PLO also incentivize and underwrite terrorism to the tune of $300 million a year, which is paid, in accordance with PA law, to convicted terrorists sitting in Israeli prisons and their families. And that’s just the money we know about. 
In welcoming Abbas to the White House, Trump chose to ignore all of this in the interest of fostering a peace deal between Israel and the PLO.

That approach has to come from his liberal son in law and daughter. No other explanation. I cannot understand how an Orthodox Jew can be a political liberal, but I'm past that stage at this point in my life. I call them as I see them. And this is a critical mistake.

Are Jared and Ivanka Orthodox?

I did not realize that.


Too bad they don't recognize the threat.

I agree this is a bad mistake. That's why I posted it.

However, I am a bit more sanguine about it for a couple of reasons:

1) I am not Jewish so I am not as sensitive to this stuff naturally


2) it's just more of the same - every President has done the same thing - and it has ALWAYS BEEN BAD FOR ISRAEL - THOUGH ISRAEL SEEMS TO GO THIS DIRECTION ON THEIR OWN TOO.

... though Israel has not gone this direction on it's own since Clinton.

There will never NEVER be peace between Israel and the Palestinians until the Western leaders understand the cult of Islam.

Trump prob thinks (as other fools have) he HAS to appear as if he can deal honestly with both sides ...he also threatened Abbas with aid cutoff if he didn;t stop paying terrorist families and as I understand it Abbas told him to fuck off.

When the Pals are led to peace, there might be a point to all this. But as we all know, they want all of Israel. It's all a settlement and any 'peace' is just part of the eventual conquest, just as the Crusades were peeled back over 200 years.

I'm going to guess that Jared et all simply think, as other super-egos in the office have, that they have a better superior set of ideas.

Good luck with that.

Nothing is different and there is nothing to even discuss yet unless it's a temporary truce for next next round of the stupidity on the Pals part.

I used to think there could be 2 states, not anymore. This goes on until they give up right of return and recognize the only jewish majority state on earth
