Michael Wolff’s now famous book quotes people who suggest that President Donald Trump is, among other things, nuts. His accusers, of course, exhibit only the most consistent rationality, sense of proportion and solid connection to reality. Er, right.
Consider. Trump allegedly called Haiti and El Salvador, along with other African nations, “sh*tholes” and asked why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America.
Cue uproar in which Trump’s remarks were denounced as racist by the UN, the African Union and of course the massed ranks of the western liberal intelligentsia who went into narcissistic meltdown (the more evil they paint Trump as being, the more virtuous they think they appear to be).
Leave aside the dispute over whether he actually used those words. Let’s assume he did. Were they unbecoming to a President of the United States? Yes of course they were. Were they racist? No of course they weren’t. Calling a place a sh*thole is not to disparage its inhabitants. On the contrary, it may suggest they’re to be pitied for having to endure such conditions.
Many who are opposed to President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital point to the call for violence by Hamas and the scattered violence on the West Bank as evidence that Trump was wrong. But violence should never influence US policy. The leaders of Hamas and other Palestinian groups use violence as a deliberate tactic to get their way. If policy-makers allow this tactic to deter them from doing the right thing, it will only incentivize the opponents of a peaceful resolution of the conflict to threaten and employ violence every time they do not get what they want. Violence should be responded to by police and military action, not by giving in to the unreasonable demands of those who use violence as a tactic.
French president stabs Israel in the back to please the Muslim world.
France’s Macron tells trump he’s worried about U.S. recognizing jerusalem as Israel’s Capital saying “it would hurt Muslim feelings and the peace process”.
No one cared about the “peace process” Three years ago when French Senate passed resolution to recognize Palestinian state.
But now when Trump wants to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, France cries out “Islamophobia.”
France supported the UN resolution which denied the Jewish and Christian connection to Jerusalem.
Islamic countries use the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in an attempt to take control of the holy sites in Jerusalem.
When then-candidate Donald Trump noted in January 2016 that, thanks to mass immigration, Brussels was turning into a hell hole, Belgian and European politicians presented a united front at the (media) barricades: How dare he say such a thing? Brussels, capital of the European Union, the very quintessence of the post-modern world, the avant-garde of the coming new “global civilization,” a hell hole? Of course assimilating newcomers is not always easy, and there may be friction from time to time. But never mind, they said: Trump is a buffoon, and anyway, he has zero chance of getting elected. Such were the thoughts of those avid readers of The New York Times International Edition and regular watchers of CNN International.
However, Donald Trump, in his unmistakable, brash style, was quite simply right: Brussels is rapidly descending into chaos and anarchy. Exactly two months after that dramatic Trumpism, Brussels was eviscerated by a horrific Islamic terror attack that left 32 people dead. And that was only the tip of the monstrous iceberg that has built up over three decades of mass immigration and socialist madness.
Last month alone in Brussels, there were three separate outbreaks of rioting and looting on a major scale.
First, there was the qualification of the Moroccan team to the soccer World Cup: between 300 and 500 “youths” of foreign origin took to the streets of Brussels to “celebrate” the event in their own way, looting dozens of shops in the historical center of Brussels, wreaking havoc in the deserted avenues of the “capital of civilization” and, during their riot, injuring 22 police officers.
A pious man who had reached the age of 105 suddenly stopped going to temple. Alarmed by the old fellow’s absence after so many years of faithful attendance the Rabbi went to see him.
He found him in excellent health, so the Rabbi asked, “How come after all these years we don’t see you at services anymore?”
The old man looked around and lowered his voice. “I’ll tell you, Rabbi,” he whispered.
“When I got to be 90, I expected God to take me any day. But then I got to be 95, then 100, then 105. So I figured that God is very busy and must’ve forgotten about me.”
“So?” the Rabbi asked indignantly.
“So I don’t want to remind him!”
