World says an embassy in Jerusalem prevents peace… unless it’s Turkey opening an embassy to East Jerusalem

World says an embassy in Jerusalem prevents peace unless its Turkey opening an embassy to East Jerus

When President Trump announced the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move our embassy there, most world leaders condemned the plan as an obstacle to peace. The chorus rang loud that putting an embassy in Jerusalem would derail the progress that has been made in the last few decades. Now that Turkish President Erdogan has decided to open an embassy in East Jerusalem and recognize it as the capital of Palestine, the world responded as expected.

Crickets.

It’s not that most of the world is against an embassy in Jerusalem or anyone acknowledging it as the capital. They just don’t want an embassy to Israel there, nor do they want it recognized as Jerusalem’s capital. The anti-Israel world (which is made up of a vast majority of world leaders, a good portion of the non-Jewish people, a surprisingly large number of Jews, and pretty much every Muslim) knows only one way to peace: a two-state solution.

The world wants to take a country the size of New Jersey with the only Jewish majority in the world and split it up with people, many of whom have vowed to destroy Israel itself. That’s why they’re okay with Erdogan making his fuss over all this. Let’s take a brief look at what Erdogan is doing, then I’ll leave my final thoughts on the matter.

Turkey’s Erdogan: Muslim nations to go to UN over Jerusalem

http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/turkeys-erdogan-muslim-nations-jerusalem-51811201Turkey’s president says Muslim nations will ask the United Nations for an “annulment” of President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the initiative would start at the U.N. Security Council and if it’s “vetoed there, we will work within the U.N. General Assembly for the annulment of this unjust and lawless decision.”

Opinion: Erdogan′s boring taunts in the fight over Jerusalem

http://www.dw.com/en/opinion-erdogans-boring-taunts-in-the-fight-over-jerusalem/a-41784633He’s back: the rapscallion, the bully, the lout, the eternal political campaigner Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Turkish president was at his old game as soon as the conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) kicked off in Istanbul. He called Israel a “terrorist and occupier state,” and invited “every country” to “recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the occupied state of Palestine.”

Turkey’s President Erdogan says he will open an embassy in East Jerusalem

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/turkey-recep-tayyip-erdogan-embassy-east-jerusalem-palestinians-israel-donald-trump-a8115281.htmlTurkey will open an embassy in East Jerusalem, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said, days after leading calls at a summit of Muslim leaders for the world to recognise it as the capital of Palestine.

“God willing, the day is close when officially, with God’s permission, we will open our embassy there,” he said in a speech, while maintaining his fierce criticism of the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Final Thoughts

These moves have very little to do with Jerusalem. They have everything to do with Erdogan’s ambition to be the leader of the Muslim world. He wants to build a coalition behind him to be the “great uniter” of a diverse people spread around the globe who are often at odds with one another. He wants to rebuild the Ottoman Empire. The scary part is that it might work.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib: The anti-Semitic intellectual terrorists in Congress

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib The anti-Semitic intellectual terrorists in Congress

The constitutional republic that our founding fathers envisioned was as close to being perfect as any man-made system in history. But its effectiveness was predicated on the idea that Americans would be active participants in governing. It takes sober, cognizant American voters to hold our representatives accountable. We must be aware of who we put in office and what they’re doing for – or against – the people and the nation.

But that’s not happening enough in America when it comes to Congress, at least not to the degree that it should. Instead, we have tribal warfare going on between the two major political parties which enables people to sit back and stop paying attention. All they know is they’re going to vote blue or red. Many have no idea who they’re actually voting for when they go to the ballot. They simply look for the letters (D) or (R) next to a candidate’s name.

If there’s anywhere that this practice needs to be reversed immediately, it’s in Michigan’s 13th District and Minnesota’s 5th District. These are the places that voted for Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. It’s understandable as they’re reliable Democratic strongholds, but at the very least they need to get people who don’t hate America to run as Democrats against them. Getting them to vote for the Republicans would be nice, but even sane Democrats are better than these two clowns.

Their latest foray into the realm of complete disregard for the truth happened today at a press conference in which the dynamic duo systematically dismantled reality. Their lies were so thick and so obvious, it’s the type of publicity the representatives themselves hope their constituents don’t hear. Their targets weren’t their home districts that they’re serving so poorly. Their target were the rest of the nation and the nation of Israel. They want their hatred to be known as long as it doesn’t hurt them in 2020.

It’s time to make their constituents aware of the blind hatred and unhinged rhetoric coming from these two Congresswomen’s mouths.

Commentaries like this need to reach the masses, particularly the Congressional districts that voted for these representatives. This is why we push so hard for financial contributions to this site. Getting messages like this in front of the right people is imperative if we’re going to keep our republic. Your donations directly contribute to educating the people who need to hear this the most.

The best way to categorize people like Omar and Tlaib is as “intellectual terrorists.” That is in no way a jab at their religious beliefs; the phrase can be used against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, David Axelrod, Saikat Chakrabarti, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, or anyone who essentially firebombs the truth for the sake of promoting their political agenda and pressing a false narrative.

Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” The left is always talking about words being violent. If so, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are clearly terrorizing America.

Here are some reactions to their tirade:

The Democrats’ Israel test: Do they side with common sense or radical anti-Semitism?

The Democrats Israel test Do they side with common sense or radical anti-Semitism

Every few weeks, there’s a new test for the Democratic Party that is forced to the forefront by someone in “The Squad” – Representatives Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley. One or more of them does or says something unhinged, then all eyes turn to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as well as major Democratic candidates for president to see if they’re on the side of the radical progressives who have become the face of the party.

Invariably, these are manufactured choices. They’re not prompted by a pressing issue that was in the spotlight before, but the actions of the freshmen Congresswomen turns them into news. We saw this with AOC’s claims that the world is going to end in 10-12 years if her massive Green New Deal isn’t implemented yesterday. The popularity of the $50-$100 trillion proposal among the Democratic base prompted many in the party to embrace it. But prior to her claims, there had been common sense talks of how to change our energy policy over time in a pragmatic fashion that didn’t include banning air travel or mitigating damage from cow flatulence.

Next, we saw the Democrats blink following clearly anti-Semitic Twitter posts by Omar. At first, it seemed like Pelosi was going to do the right thing as she drafted a resolution condemning any anti-Semitism coming from Congress (though it didn’t name Omar directly) but ended up pushing forward a worthless resolution essentially saying all bigotry from any member of Congress was bad.

The group played their fiddles in unison to bring about the notion that migrant detention facilities are like “concentration camps” while simultaneously panning legislation to improve conditions at these facilities. It was a stark display of contradiction on their part until they made it clear they’re not trying to make conditions better. They’re trying to eliminate the facilities and incarceration of migrants altogether. Again, the Democrats were stuck looking torn over how to handle The Squad, agreeing with them in principle but legislating against them.

Today’s manufactured crisis within the party pertains to Israel. Last week, Tlaib and Omar were blocked from their trip to the Middle Eastern nation because their intentions were to incite anti-Israel groups with varying degrees of attachments to both the BDS movement and terrorist organizations themselves. To try to paint Israel as purely racist, Tlaib bluffed by cordially requesting to see her 90-year-old grandmother who lives in the West Bank. To her dismay, the request was quickly approved. She backtracked after her bluff was called.

Democrats in the House have a choice: Acknowledge that Israel is right to block this particular trip or follow The Squad in promoting the idea that Israel hates Muslims. These are two very distinct narratives that offer no middle ground. Keep in mind, they could have traveled with a huge Congressional delegation earlier in the month, but chose not to. Instead, they had an agenda and an itinerary presented to Israel that made it clear their intentions were to exacerbate problems and fuel anti-Israel tension. They even announced in their itinerary that they were traveling to “Palestine,” not Israel.

This is standard operating procedure for The Squad: Create an issue that drives a wedge between sensible Democrats and the radical progressives. They’re taking names, or to be more specific, their handlers at the Justice Democrats are taking names. Who is going to support the radical progressive agendas of extreme climate change “solutions,” full-blown open borders, and complete detachment from Israel as an ally?

It is crystal clear who is setting the Democrats’ agenda. As The Squad keeps pushing the party further to the left with each manufactured issue they present, will Democrats have the guts to stand up and tell their puppetmasters to back off?

Ilhan Omar compares Israel blocking entry to South African apartheid

Ilhan Omar compares Israel blocking entry to South African apartheid

Anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar did what she normally does. She played the race card, or more specifically, the Islamophobia card against Israel. To do this, she compared Israel’s blocking of her and Representative Rashida Tlaib to the apartheid blocking of a black Congressman by South Africa 44-years ago.

There are several holes in this narrative. First, her claims that only she and Tlaib were blocked because they are Muslim and the rest of those traveling with them were not blocked is a bald-faced lie that takes advantage of how the block was reported. The news was that the two Congresswomen were blocked, but in reality the trip itself was denied by the Israeli government. That means everyone traveling with them, not just the two Congresswomen, were not allowed entry based on the itinerary they presented to the Israeli government.

Second, this trip, which they claimed was to “Palestine” and included an itinerary that had them exclusively visiting anti-Israel factions, was singled out. None of the potential travelers were blocked from entry, as Israel demonstrated this morning when they allowed Tlaib to enter to see her 90-year-old grandmother in the West Bank. But Tlaib, of course, declined her own request because it was a bluff, a political stunt.

Third, the Representatives’ continued attacks on Israel as well as their support for BDS and Hamas is demonstrably a threat to the nation of Israel. This is unambiguous and has not even been denied by the Congresswomen because they know it to be true. In fact, they’re proud of their opposition to Israel’s right to exist.

If you can find a time when Ilhan Omar isn’t being disingenuous or blatantly lying, it’s only because she isn’t speaking at that moment. Her hatred for Israel and America are clear. She must be voted out in 2020.
