    Omar faints. Taliban starts to foam from the mouth...all is good!

    Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announces major change to US policy, recognizes Israeli courts' authority on settlements.

    It's funny'

    Tell us why Jordanian FORMAL annexation of the West Bank and E, Jerusalem was accepted yet when Israel obtained those territories after the Arabs initiated the 67 War it became " occupied"

    The Jordanian annexation of the West Bank was the occupation and consequent annexation of the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) by Jordan (formerly Transjordan) in the aftermath of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.[1][2] During the war, Jordan's Arab Legion conquered the Old City of Jerusalem and took control of territory on the western side of the Jordan River, including the cities of Jericho, Bethlehem, Hebron and Nablus.[3] At the end of hostilities, Jordan was in complete control of the West Bank. It was FORMALLY annexed April 24, 1950

    It wasn't. Only Britain and Pakistan recognized the annexation. The rest of the world said it was an occupation.

    Trump and his swamp is not the arbiter of international law.

    Jordan FORMALLY annexed it. From what I have read, nobody seemed to care or yell to the U.N. about " International Law" or " occupation"

    According to " International Law" the Israelis were to have access to their Holy Sites but were of course denied. "
    Maybe YOU can tell us why the UN " PEACEKEEPERS" deliberately left just prior to the War since you're such a expert on " International Law"

    Yet another Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter policy overturned by this magnificent President.

    I bet Jimmy Carter is prematurely turning over in his grave.

    Deflection. “ International Law” should apply to everybody

    The U. N. and it’s double standard has everything to do with “ Palestine “

    Just admit you can’t answer because there was not a justifiable reason for the “ peacekeepers “ to deliberately leave with tensions rising or why Jordan was allowed to do what they did

    The Trump administration has returned sanity to US policy on the issue. There is no rational basis in factor logic for calling the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria illegal. There is no rational basis in fact or lobic for calling the Israeli administration of Judea and Samaria an occupational. Only some one profoundly ignorant of the situation or deeply bigoted can claim the "Palestinians" are capable of credibly offering peace to Israel since their leadership is so fragmented and not likely to be consolidated in the foreseeable future.

    Palestine is not responsible for what other countries do.
