Is It Really about Jerusalem?

The protests that have swept the West Bank, Gaza Strip and large parts of the Arab and Islamic world in the aftermath of US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital show that most Arabs and Muslims still have not come to terms with Israel’s right to exist.

The protests also provide further evidence that many Arabs and Muslims, including, of course, the Palestinians, continue to view the US as an enemy and “big Satan” because of its support for Israel. Trump’s announcement is just another excuse for Arabs and Muslims to vent their long-standing hatred for Israel and the US.

    I’ll answer your one question and leave you with another.
    Muslims have a religious duty to hate Jews. Everyone here knows that.
    That is why there will never be peace in the Middle East as long as there is a state of Israel or until Islam is discredited and no longer practiced. The latter outcome benefits all of mankind, so I’m opting for that solution.

    My question is, who is funding and coordinating all of this?
    Arabs can’t organize a spaghetti dinner let alone a broadbased intifada that spans multiple countries.

      The answer can be found in the UN. It’s the “international community” in general and the EU in particular. Hitler failed to finally solve their Jewish problem and now they are pinning their hopes on the Arabs, who they believe their sheer numbers can overcome their incompetence. It’s not going to work because Israelis are constantly looking for equalizers in their military research. First, they built the bomb, then came aerial drones, and now they are working on “Iron Beam”, drone warships, robotic vehicles and cyber warfare, all this bringing science fiction to life.

    It’s really is about Jerusalem to the the extent that it is part of dar al-Harb, in other words just one Kuffar piece in Islam’s plan to conquer the world.

    “No one is illegal.” Borders and such are bad. Go anywhere you want. That’s the just way.

    Except for the location of an embassy. That’s illegal. Bad. Can’t come here.

    The left is insane.

    It doesn’t matter what it’s ‘about’. Every day a billion Muslims wake up thirsting for the blood of all the rest of us. It doesn’t matter what the trigger is any more than we’re supposed to figure out why Ted Bundy did what he did or why Tigers in India eat people. It’s not what they do, it’s who they are.
