Israel Silliness Continues

It is apparent that many American Jews support efforts of the Israel government to construct illegal Jewish settlements on the West Bank. In 1948, the UN created the state of Israel and set aside land, including the West Bank, for a future Palestinian state. In the Six Day War of 1967, Israel conquered the West Bank. Within a few years Jewish settlers entered the West Bank, seized land from Palestinians and gradually  extended their power so by 2016 there are now over 400,000 Jewish settlers on land set aside for Palestinians.

Israel, like the US and over a hundred nations, signed the Geneva Convention. This makes it illegal for a conquering army to seize land in conquered nations. Any such action if illegal, period. The UN has continually made clear that Israel can not seize land owned by Palestinians. An Israel Ambassador argued telling Israel it could not build on the West Bank is equivalent to telling France it could not build in Paris. Huh?

France can build in Paris to its heart’s content, but it cannot build homes in Algeria because this country once belonged to France.Try it and there will be war!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If Israel insists other nations term it a “Jewish state,”does this mean the US is a “Christian state?”

Prior to actually becoming  president, Trump has created conflicts over nuclear weapons, China policy, Philippine policy, Obama, Clinton, health care, etc.. what is the encore–blowing up the world?

At some point Trump supporters will  conclude, –did I really vote for this idiot?

There must be some group in America that is angry because Trump did not denounce it.

One never hears anything from Melania Trump, is she still his wife or has Ivanka taken on that role as well?

Israel is the only nation that if one makes critical remarks about its leaders, the conclusion is that one hates ALL Jews.

Was Putin aware that Russia backed the UN Security Council resolution on Israel settlements, I thought PM Netanyahu was his buddy.

I wonder how folks get one of those fantastic high paying  jobs coming back from China?

 

Israel Government Is Upset

For the past 66 years every American president has supported the idea that peace between Israel and Palestinians depends upon creation of a state of Palestine that includes the West Bank. This area was seized by  the Israel army during the 1967 Six Day War.  It was the assumption of American presidents since that date this area would become part of a new state of Palestine. However, as the years went by Jewish settlers entered the West Bank and build housing developments in area that belonged to Palestinians. For decades, the UN has been urging Israel to leave the West Bank.

Last week the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning Israel for violation of its requests to evacuate. For years the Obama administration has vetoed such resolutions, but several days ago it abstained and allowed passage of the resolution. Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu blasted Obama for allowing this “crime” and accused him of hating the state of Israel.

For the record:

Under the Obama administration Israel has received $19 billion worth of arms, more money than received by any other nation.

The US funded the Dome, a shield that protects Israel from foreign missiles.

Secretary of State John Kerry spent two years seeking a COMPROMISE solution between Israel and Palestinians.

I assume, if  there are any historians still left, they will refer to WWIII as the TWEET WAR.

I must admit the nonstop, all night tweets of Donald Trump leave me envious at his energy.

There are unconfirmed reports that Ben Carson,by mistake went to  the Washington D.C, metro because he though he was now in charge of all transportation.

In fairness, as of this date, no one has actually ever explained to Ben what HUD stands for.

I sometimes think Donald wants to go to war simultaneously with Russia and China to prove he is a fantastic war leader.

Has anyone explained to Trump that when the US raises tariffs on foreign goods, those nations raise tariffs on American goods?

Obama Ends List

The one certainty in modern life is that at some point each one of us will discover that our name is on some list. A colleague, who was born in Lebanon was interviewed by FBI agents regarding his  membership in a Lebanon group. The organization had been formed by Lebanese born Americans to help  restore monuments that had been damaged, My friend was on the ‘dangerous Lebanon Muslim” list even though he was Christian. In the aftermath of 9/11 Homeland Security created a surveillance list of suspected Muslim potential terrorists.

The National SecurityEntry-List Registration list has been around for years. It contains the names of 80,000 people. They have been finger-printed, had their pictures taken, and periodically compelled to be questioned. As of this date the following is the number of actual crimes committed by these people–ZERO. Much to the chagrin of Donald Trump, President Obama has ordered the list to be destroyed!

I can not even imagine what it would be like to be in Aleppo, can you?

We used to warn people not to be quick on the trigger, today, not not on the tweet.

I wonder if the entire Trump family will be sworn in next month?

Raise your hand if you knew you were voting for Ivanka Trump as your  president.

Terrorists now  use trucks, what next, toy guns?

Ten investigations of four dead at Benghazi, not one for cyber attacks!

I increasingly  wonder if any Republican has ever read the US Constitution?

Oh well, now is the time to worry about real important issues, who will wind up in the Super Bowl?

I wonder if in my lifetime, we will witness a Socialist as our president?

Today, stock market goes up, ah, but tomorrow, it will go DOWN–eventually!

Americans quickly forget what the country was in 2009, and no longer is.

Welcome to the era of government by tweets.

One wonders if Donald Trump has actually ever read a book–from cover to cover.

A majority of Americans are not happy with the outcome of this election.

Government of the minority is now the newest American dream.

Michelle Obama has a sense of pride in America that her successor will never possess.

Sanders supporters who did NOT vote for Clinton most probably are in a state of shock over their decision.

 

The Obama Legacy

Donald Trump will shortly become president of the United States of America and   he will initiate his programs to make America Great Again. In 2009 when Barack Obama became president, he inherited an economy which was losing 800,000 jobs each month, and the national debt had risen from $5 Trillion to $11 Trillion,  and the stock market had collapsed. So,what will Donald Trump now inherit?

1. At least 200,000 new jobs created each month.

2. A growth of 3.2% in the GDP.

3. The unemployment rate is now 4.2%, among the lowest in fifteen years.

4. Health care costs have risen at the lowest rate in nearly twenty years.

5. The war in Iraq is now proceeding at a pace to end ISIS control in that part of the world.

6. Employers now confront the issue of not enough people with skills to fill existing jobs.

7. The stock market has risen to new highs.

8. The value of the dollar is now high.

YES, DONALD, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Your Land Is My Land

Forty nine years ago, the Israel army defeated Jordanian troops and took possession of an area known as the West Bank. The United Nations in 1948 divided the then Mandate of Palestine into the state of Israel and a supposed state of Palestine. Jordan took possession of an area known as the West Bank, and after its defeat in 1967, Israel soldiers took control of the area. It was assumed that eventually, this area would become part of a state of Palestine.

Jewish settlers rushed into the West Bank claiming that God himself had promised this area to Jews. In an area known as Amona, Jewish settlers seize land owned by Palestinians and proclaimed the land belonged to them. The Geneva Convention states that “an occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” There are reports the Israel government of Prime Minister Netanyahu will incorporate this area of the West Bank into the nation of Israel. A clear violation of the Geneva Convention–which Israel agreed to honor.

The Republican coup in North Carolina exemplifies the death of democracy in this nation.

Hate and anger are now normal in American politics.

Who would doubt that Donald Trump is capable of ruling by decree?

First time in American politics we elected a family rather than a person as our president.

I would love to hear the conversation between Trump and Putin when they finally meet.

How many Americans realized they voted for Putin as our next leader?

God should have provided a third hand to scratch the back.

I wonder how Trump will handle his first crisis as president, promise to make America a Great Nation Again?

We Americans have met the enemy and he is US.
