Donald Trump is proving to be the most pro-Israeli president in American history, and may God bless him for it. Two days ago, through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, he declared that Israeli settlements in the West Bank are not illegal. Most Israelis are happy and grateful for this great announcement and long-overdue policy shift.

Netanyahu Celebrates US Settlement Decision in West Bank

This reverses a decades-long wrong-headed policy of viewing the settlements as illegal. Trump is absolutely right: those settlements are not illegal:

All Trump has done is put any sort of Palestinian peace process forever out of reach. Nothing major.

I'm a fan of Pres.Trump and will vote for him again in 2020

But I strongly disagree with his support for the terrorist state of Israel.

Pres.Trump, like all American presidents for the last 100 years, must pledge unwavering allegiance to the rogue state of Israel, and kowtow to the AIPAC lobby in order to get elected and have a change to be reelected 4 years later.

Although in my opinion, Pres.Trump has taken the mandatory requirement to support to apartheid state of Israel and its psychopath leader Nuttyyahoo way too far. ... :cool:

really? How so? When Trump leaves office and a Democrat takes his place it’ll be back to the good old days of blaming the Jews for living. And then what? How was the “Palestinian peace process” going before Trump?

The settlements were never illegal; that lie was UN propaganda.

Obama has been out of office for nearly 3 years, stop mentioning his support for Iran.

Yikes! "Rogue regime"? Israel is a democratic nation that has a robust judiciary, a vibrant free press, universal healthcare, and quality education for her citizens. Compare Israel with the cesspool known as Gaza, where the Palestinians have been running things for years.

If President Trump were to abdicate,maybe he would establish his administration in exile in Israel, living in the court of Netanyahu?

The Palestinians had their chance for a West Bank state in 1947, but they rejected it because their Arab buddies assured them that they could wipe out the Jews in short order. So, instead, the Palestinians started making plans for who among them would get what Jewish-owned lands, etc., etc. But, ooops, against all odds, the Jews defeated the Arab armies and gained their independence.

What's more, the Jordanians would still own the West Bank if they had not entered the Six-Day War when they thought they were going to take part in a slaughter of the Israelis. But, once again, the Israelis overcame great odds and won, and in the process took control of the West Bank.

I wonder how many liberals know how popular Hitler still is to this day among Arabs. I wonder how many of them know how many Palestinian leaders in the 1940s supported Hitler.

I strongly believe that you are wrong on Israel but you are correct to support President Trump. Now for negotiations between Israel and the Pals.

IF we wiped out Israel, we would have no problems with that area of the planet.

All of our problems over there began in 1948, just as Einstein warned.....


Einstein Letter Warning Of
Zionist Facism In Israel
Letter That Albert Einstein Sent to the New York Times
1948, Protesting the Visit of Menachem Begin

11-1-4

Letters to the Editor
New York Times
December 4, 1948
TO THE EDITORS OF THE NEW YORK TIMES:
Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.
The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughoutthe world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin's political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.
Before irreparable damage is done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in Begin's behalf, and the creation in Palestine of the impression that a large segment of America supports Fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objectives of Mr. Begin and his movement. The public avowals of Begin's party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state. It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.
Attack on Arab Village
A shocking example was their behavior in the Arab village of Deir Yassin. This village, off the main roads and surrounded by Jewish lands, had taken no part in the war, and had even fought off Arab bands who wanted to use the village as their base. On April 9 (THE NEW YORK TIMES), terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants ? 240men, women, and children - and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem. Most of the Jewish community was horrified at the deed, and the Jewish Agency sent a telegram of apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan. But the terrorists, far from being ashamed of their act, were proud of this massacre, publicized it widely, and invited all the foreign correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and the general havoc at Deir Yassin. The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions of the Freedom Party.
Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of ultranationalism, religious mysticism, and racial superiority. Like other Fascist parties they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions. In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model. During the last years of sporadic anti-British violence, the IZL and Stern groups inaugurated a reign of terror in the Palestine Jewish community. Teachers were beaten up for speaking against them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them. By gangster methods, beatings, window-smashing, and wide-spread robberies, the terrorists intimidated the population and exacted a heavy tribute.
The people of the Freedom Party have had no part in the constructive achievements in Palestine. They have reclaimed no land, built no settlements, and only detracted from the Jewish defense activity. Their much-publicized immigration endeavors were minute, and devoted mainly to bringing in Fascist compatriots.
Discrepancies Seen
The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a "Leader State" is the goal.
In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the truth about Mr. Begin and his movement be made known in this country. It is all the more tragic that the top leadership of American Zionism has refused to campaign against Begin's efforts, or even to expose to its own constituents the dangers to Israel from support to Begin.
The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.
