    ^^ Ahhhh....there we go. It’s “Israel’s fault”. Blame the Jews for what the Muslim Turks are doing.

    Gawd you people are pathetic.

    Is it hard to understand why non-Jews would object to Jews stealing their land and water? Maybe you should take the time to find some facts instead of relying on right-wing fiction?

    The Origin of the Palestine-Israel Conflict

    "What really happened was that the Zionist movement, from the beginning, looked forward to a practically complete dispossession of the indigenous Arab population so that Israel could be a wholly Jewish state, or as much as was possible.

    "Land bought by the Jewish National Fund was held in the name of the Jewish people and could never be sold or even leased back to Arabs (a situation which continues to the present).

    "The Arab community, as it became increasingly aware of the Zionists’ intentions, strenuously opposed further Jewish immigration and land buying because it posed a real and imminent danger to the very existence of Arab society in Palestine.

    "Because of this opposition, the entire Zionist project never could have been realized without the military backing of the British.

    "The vast majority of the population of Palestine, by the way, had been Arabic since the seventh century A.D. (Over 1200 years)"

    Tayyip Erdogan has complained to the EU, that if they do not allow Muslims to freely flow into Europe, there will be a war between the cross and the crescent moon. Islam's intentions have always been clear, they believe they MUST overthrow non-Islamic nations and bring in Islamic rule. The more influence they gain in non-Islamic nations, the more emboldened they are. The Turks most likely knew that there were U.S. Special Forces in the area and didn't care.

    I've read accounts of Erdogan threatening to "open the gates" and send 3.6 million Muslim refugees into Europe if EU states criticize his invasion of Syria; however, he would be committing national suicide to initiate armed conflict with his NATO allies.

    If there's a potential for wider blood-letting in the region, I suspect Israel and Iran pose the biggest threat:


    The Israel-Iran Shadow War Escalates and Breaks Into the Open
    • "Aug. 28, 2019
    "JERUSALEM — Israel has carried out a series of attacks across the Middle East in recent weeks to prevent Iran from equipping its Arab allies with precision-guided missiles, drones and other sophisticated weapons that could challenge Israel’s defenses.

    "The attacks represent a new escalation in the shadow war between Iran and Israel, which has broken into the open and threatens to set off a wider confrontation."

    Iran and Syria are the threat. Israel only acts militarily acts against Syria, Iran and Lebanon, after repeated rocket firings against them. We have to remember that the Jews founded Jerusalem, but were conquered militarily by Islam and through the UN Security Council, managed to get back a "small" bit of the land they lost to Islam. But, per the Koran's doctrine, if Muslims conquer a land and the land is taken back by the people they conquered, those people are to be considered "occupiers." Hence the continued screams from the Palestinians (Muslims), that the Jews are occupiers...when it has been the Muslims who were the actual occupiers.

    Yes, a group of people kicked another out of some land and took for their own. That is how all nations on this Earth were founded. Why do people obsess so much on the Israelis doing it?

    Why are Jews alone, among all nations, allowed to steal resources from non-Jew because of their history/mythology?

    The Origin of the Palestine-Israel Conflict

    "Before the Hebrews first migrated there around 1800 B.C., the land of Canaan was occupied by Canaanites.

    "'Between 3000 and 1100 B.C., Canaanite civilization covered what is today Israel, the West Bank, Lebanon and much of Syria and Jordan...Those who remained in the Jerusalem hills after the Romans expelled the Jews [in the second century A.D.] were a potpourri: farmers and vineyard growers, pagans and converts to Christianity, descendants of the Arabs, Persians, Samaritans, Greeks and old Canaanite tribes.' Marcia Kunstel and Joseph Albright, 'Their Promised Land.'"

    Kurdish Fighters Always Feared Trump Would be a Treacherous Ally
    by PATRICK COCKBURN

    "We are already on the downslope leading to the ethnic cleansing of up to 2 million Kurds in the vast triangle of land which the Kurds call Rojava in northeast Syria.

    "Much of the Kurdish population lives in cities and towns like Qamishli, Kobani and Tal Abyad just south of the Syrian-Turkish frontier.

    "They are unlikely to wait to see what a Turkish occupation, backed by bands of Syrian Arab paramilitaries with links to al-Qaeda type groups, is like.

    "Trump’s support for America’s Kurdish allies was always rickety, but the brazenness of the final betrayal is still breathtaking.

    "All the credit for defeating Isis is given to US forces under Trump’s wise leadership, while in reality the US role was almost entirely confined to airstrikes and artillery fire."

    Maybe Rudy will save Rojava?

    Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria. Ms. Hevrin Khalef was reportedly dragged from a vehicle and shot to death. That’s a war crime.
