The US has maintained the fiction for decades of being an even-handed mediator between Israel and the Palestinians. This week, President Donald Trump finally junked this tired, old canard by agreeing to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem from its current headquarters in Tel Aviv.

There was huge symbolism in this move that met with universal condemnation. It means the US is abandoning any chance of a two-state solution, which was the original UN plan for Palestine. Henceforth, Palestinians will subsist in a Jewish unitary state as a powerless, restive underclass. Washington is violating international law, the 1993 Oslo Accords, and countless UN resolutions.

Crusader Trump’s decision strongly suggests there will be no Palestinian state, no Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, and no political hope for the region’s 5.5 million Palestinians refugees living precariously in Israel, the occupied West Bank, Gaza, Syria and Lebanon.

America’s president is a notorious Muslim-hater who has sought to bar people from the Islamic world from the United States. Trump knows very little about the Mideast – which I call the ‘American Raj’ in my last book of the same name because of its resemblance to Britain’s imperial rule over India.

Trump is surrounded by ardent Greater Israel supporters in Washington and New York that include his immediate family, and so-called ‘advisors’ from the extreme far right. Amazingly, his much ballyhooed speech last May in Saudi Arabia to assorted Arab potentates and vassals was actually written by a thirty-something ultra-Zionist right-winger from Santa Monica, California.

Adding to the black comedy, Trump has commanded his young Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to forge a Mideast peace deal. Kushner, a New York real estate executive, is a nice young man but he knows as much about the Mideast as I do about Papua New Guinea.

The ‘peace negotiations’ Kushner has launched are a cruel farce. He and Trump expect a deal of some sort between America’s Mideast vassals – Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Emirates, Jordan, the brutal Egyptian dictatorship, and the medieval king of Morocco.

These powerless satraps can make all the ‘peace deals’ they like. But the true parties who must be engaged are Israel, now governed by a very far right government, and the Palestinians, misrepresented by the corrupt Palestinian Authority (PLO) and nationalist Hamas, as well as splinter groups. The PLO is pretty much a puppet of the US and Israel, run by the doddering old Mahmoud Abbas. In the Mideast, only Turkey remains a truly independent Muslim nation that’s not under Washington’s thumb.

Even so, Abbas, other Palestinians and Arab leaders are all denouncing Trump and his bull in a China shop behavior. Who cares? Trump’s actions show just how divided and impotent the Arab world really is.

ORDER IT NOW

The Israelis know that their Arab neighbors can huff and puff all they like, but are powerless to do anything but riot in the streets and burn cars. If anti-Israel riots become too violent, Israel has no compunctions about gunning down the demonstrators or blowing up their family homes. Never has the Arab world shown itself so weak and timid.

Moreover, Israel’s new pals in Saudi Arabia have been stabbing Palestinians in the back for decades and secretly want to see them crushed. The feudal Saudis fear and distrust the modern, educated Palestinians. The same applies to Egypt’s brutish military dictatorship that now thrives on Saudi, Israeli and US money.

No one has bothered to consult with the Palestinians who have been marginalized, ignored or bombed for over half a century. There will be no real peace without them.

But President Trump cares nothing about these irksome details. He just wants a faux peace agreement adorned with his royal signature. What really counts to Trump is winning American Jewish support in the next election and satisfying his vital evangelical Christian voter base.

America’s Christian far right, which comprises half of Republican voters, earnestly believes in Biblical prophesy that the Messiah cannot come until ancient Israel is reconstituted, the world’s Jews are ingathered to Greater Israel, the Messiah returns and non-believers perish in the final destruction of earth.

These folk are ardent ‘Christian Zionists’ who applaud Trump’s policies. Most of their information about the outside comes from Christian evangelical publications and TV stations or, in the case of Trump, from Fox TV, another dedicated supporter of Greater Israel.

The Christian evangelists are the core of Trump’s support in rural and suburban America. In fact, as Kevin Phillips wrote in his brilliant book “American Theocracy,” the Republicans have mostly become a rightwing religious party representing the less enlightened parts of America. These fundamentalists must be very pleased that their good president Trump is speeding the arrival of the Messiah.

    UN is no less guilty. When UN came into being, it was dominated by the US, USSR, and to a lesser extent by UK. And all three conspired against Palestinians and forced the Partition that led to war and Nakba.

    UN is all talk, no walk.

    If UN is to have any credibility, it needs to make a public apology to the Palestinians. UN pretends to be fair by promoting a ‘two-state solution’, but it was UN actions that destroyed traditional Palestine and forced Palestinians to huddle as wretched refuse in West Bank and Gaza(or seek exile in Jordan).

    Both US and UN(largely dominated by US) have been utterly bogus.
    If UN has any legitimacy, why doesn’t it charge the US for war crimes?

    The UN has been subject to power politics among the most powerful players generally. However, the UN did not force Palestinians into the enclaves, ghettos and prisons they now inhabit. The Jewish army did this. What could the UN have done? Condemn Israel? It has done this hundreds of times. It is not a bogus institution, but rather a real one, run by and dependent upon people and nations pursuing their interests through the UN. It cannot live up to its mandate unless the people and nations do and this is unlikely. The problem with all good intentions is that they required the cooperation of people, other people. The international courts and international laws mean nothing without enforcement. BTW -- The US threatened and cajoled member states to vote for partition. It was not a popular idea then, any more than Isrqel is a popular country today. The fly in the ointment is always people.

  2. America’s president is a notorious Muslim-hater who has sought to bar people from the Islamic world from the United States.

    US should have barred all non-whites like the Founders intended.

    Also, ‘hate’ is when you aggressively attack others, not when you defend your turf from outsiders.
    Were Algerians and Vietnamese haters of France in their resistance struggles? No, they only hated French aggression and imperialism. They had no hostility against the French nation itself. They were only trying to reclaim their beloved homelands from foreign occupiers.

    Japan doesn’t want to be invaded and colonized by Muslims. Is that ‘hate’?

    Must a people invite demographic invasion to be on the side of angels? No, such a people HATE their own kind. Self-hate crime is the worst.

    Trump has allowed Russia and Iran to finish off ISIS in Syria. He also condemned the Iraq War and Libyan War. Notice that those who claim to love Muslims most did most to invade and destroy Muslim nations. And Saudis did a lot to destroy fellow Muslim nations Syria and Yemen.

    Now, if Trump’s stupid talk about Iran turns into real action, then he would be lowdown scumbag. I suspect he has no real animus against Iran. He’s just sucking up to Zionists. Paradoxically, one has to be more pro-Zionist if hated by Jews. Because Worship of Jews is the new religion and because ‘antisemitism’ is a cardinal sin, one has to prove one’s is pro-Jewish when attacked by Jews. Since Jews say Trump is hitler, Trump has to show he’s the best friend of Jews and shills for Israel. But, there’s no guarantee that he will really have a war with Iran. He could be going for rhetoric only.

    Btw, if the US doesn’t smash the Middle East, then there will be no wars, and that means no refugees. Muslims can then stay in their own nations. If Muslims wanna flee their own nations even in peacetime, it means they hate their own kind and prefer to live with whites. They are the self-haters. Why should the West welcome self-hating Muslims who don’t want to live with their own kind?

    Anyway, no nation can survive by allowing massive foreign invasion aka mass immigration. Mass immigration IS invasion. Mass arrival of Jews led to destruction of Palestine. Mass arrival of Spanish led to demise of native peoples in Meso-America. Hawaiians are a minority in their own homeland because of white and yellow mass immigration.

    Anyone who pushes mass immigration is an imperialist.

    People like Hillary, Merkel, May, McCain, Biden, the Bush clan, and etc no longer identify with their own race, culture, and people. They identify with power and privilege. If they must serve globalism to stay in the game of power and privilege, they will do so.

    The difference between past imperialism and current imperialism is that the former was about one people colonizing another people’s land whereas the latter is about ALL nations being demographically colonized by everyone as the all the elites of the world work together for their own aggrandizement and privilege. Of course, Israel gets pass-over rights in not being forced to allow mass invasion. But then, who controls globalism? Only Jews are allowed to have an arrangement where Jewish elites identify with and serve their ethnic kin.

    Of course, these immigrant-invaders do the passive/aggressive thing. They aggressively seek to colonize other nations but play ‘victims’ of ‘hateful bigoted natives’.
    Just look at those Hindus. They want to take over Anglo-made worlds with massive colonization, but they act like ‘victims’ of ‘racism’ and ‘xenophobia’. Invading other nations is now a ‘human right’ according to globo-dominated UN.
    Mass invasion by boat, foot, or by plane ticket is supposed to be a Right. So, the US has to offer ‘sanctuary’ to illegals who are sacralized as ‘dreamers’.
    EU has to take in all those who invade by boat or come on foot.

    Natives are supposed to be into self-hate and shower love on invaders.

    How did the world become this stupid?

You also forget that Russia several years ago recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    A two-state solution is still possible as the decision only concern West-Jerusalem.

    Note also that Israel has thousands of years of history in the area while the so-called “Palestinians” are mostly immigrants and have none. They should really have been moved to Jordan when the British Mandate was divided.

  10. If we’re going to be giving stuff back to people, why should we return Jerusalem to the Arab Muslims? Let’s give it back to the Greeks, along with Constantinople and Alexandria. That would only be just! Notice that we are talking Greeks here, not Orthodox Christians.

    Speaking of which, Margolis’s article is a prime example of the double standard that reigns in certain circles when it comes to dealing with Christians and Muslims. The Muslims are always portrayed as long-suffering gentle martyrs, as opposed to bloodthirsty maniacs who can’t run a modern state to save their lives – literally. They are always innocent of everything, it’s their rulers and the West that are screwing them over. And meanwhile in the West, the American Christians are blinkered howling lunatics Hell-bent on crusading in the Middle East, rather than citizens of the freest country on Earth, a country which produces a great amount of hardcore pornography, and in which gay marriage was recently discovered to be a constitutionally protected human right.

    The Palestinians have a clear way forward – stop whining and trying to put Humpty Dumpty together again, and instead press hard for the one-state solution, and then either try to succeed on the Knesset’s terms within Israel, or raise hell about apartheid and human rights.
    What is certain is that histrionics and riots won’t accomplish anything good. And certainly won’t change the status of Jerusalem.

  13. The Trump administration is run by a military junta, ignorant and ardent Zionists and Christian Armaggedonists who are in fact wolves in Anti-Semitics clothing. One should not forget that whole Jerusalem is still occupied territory, i. e. “Corpus seperatum,” as it was termed in the infamous UN resolution, which robbed have of Palestine from the indigenous population. From an international law standpoint, Trump so-called recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital doesn’t mean a thing. One can even argue that the whole of Palestine is still occupied, but this would be too much for the Trumpeter in the White House.

    But why make a big fuss about Trump’s silly announcement of recognizing Jerusalem, while forgetting what the shining light of American liberalism, Barack Hussein Obama, said as Senator in July 2008.

    The Palestinian People will never put up with the occupation of their capital, East Jerusalem. But first, they have to get rid of the Abbas and Dahlan clique and resists Israeli occupation with any means at their disposal. One can’t liberate a subjugated people in a sleeping car and negotiate with your oppressor about some crumbs of bread he is willing to hand out to prevent one’s starvation.

    I'm afraid you're using the wrong definition of "Syria". For the "Palestinian residents of the region in 1919", Syria did not refer to the current truncated version, but rather to: (modern) Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, the "Occupied Territories", Gaza and parts of Turkey and Iraq.

    Why not hand present day Israel and the West Bank over to Assad and let him sort it out?

    And who do you fancy will do that? The governing skills of clan Assad are on display in Syria as we speak. Israel has a productive capacity 4x that of Syria. Syria's history of military engagement with Israel is inglorious. Do you ever get tired of adolescent guises and poses?

    No, President Trump is not a Muslim hater as you state. He is a realist. The negotiations with the "Palestinians" as they call themselves is not going anywhere since they have aligned their policies with the terrorist group Hamas so it is time to take a stand.

    Israel is a sovereign nation and if the Israelis say Jerusalem is their capital so be it. Congress decided that more than two decades ago, but none of the previous Presidents have dared to implement it. You also forget that Russia several years ago recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    A two-state solution is still possible as the decision only concern West-Jerusalem.

    Note also that Israel has thousands of years of history in the area while the so-called "Palestinians" are mostly immigrants and have none. They should really have been moved to Jordan when the British Mandate was divided.

    aligned their policies with the terrorist group Hamas

    Many decades back, some people had aligned their policies with the terrorist group Irgun.

  21. 1. Centralizing the government and religion in one place puts a giant bullseye on Jerusalem. Jihadis will not hesitate to blow up Christian and Jewish sites just because Al-Aqsa is also there. There are people who not only blew up to tomb of the prophet Jonah (whom Islam accepts) and targeted pre-Islamic structures such as the Sphinx and the pyramids, but also wanted to blow up Mecca and any site associated with Muhammed because they considered them idolatrous.

    2. Tel Aviv has cutting edge technology and city planning to allow emergency vehicles quick navigation when necessary. Neither of these things could be implemented in Jerusalem without disrupting the city’s historical integrity.

    3. Palestinian and Israeli Christians are already squeezed enough between Jews and Muslims. To frighten away tourists by stirring up unrest right before Christmas, when their economy desperately needs religious pilgrims, is disastrous. It makes them far more likely to join in Muslim-led uprisings, even though any successful rebellions will mean Christianity being totally suppressed under Muslim rule.

    With friends like Trump, Israel doesn’t need enemies.

    There was an arson campaign a number of years back wherein a great many trees were set on fire. That aside, Arabs in Israel don’t have much of a history of political violence. On the West Bank and Gaza, most Arabs live outside Israel’s security perimeter and only about 150,000 live under Israel’s civil administration.

Why not hand present day Israel and the West Bank over to Assad and let him sort it out? It's not like the US is going to get out of the region anyway.

    There was huge symbolism in this move that met with universal condemnation. It means the US is abandoning any chance of a two-state solution, which was the original UN plan for Palestine. Henceforth, Palestinians will subsist in a Jewish unitary state as a powerless, restive underclass. Washington is violating international law, the 1993 Oslo Accords, and countless UN resolutions.

    UN is no less guilty. When UN came into being, it was dominated by the US, USSR, and to a lesser extent by UK. And all three conspired against Palestinians and forced the Partition that led to war and Nakba.

    UN is all talk, no walk.

    If UN is to have any credibility, it needs to make a public apology to the Palestinians. UN pretends to be fair by promoting a 'two-state solution', but it was UN actions that destroyed traditional Palestine and forced Palestinians to huddle as wretched refuse in West Bank and Gaza(or seek exile in Jordan).

    Both US and UN(largely dominated by US) have been utterly bogus.
    If UN has any legitimacy, why doesn't it charge the US for war crimes?

    The UN has been subject to power politics among the most powerful players generally. However, the UN did not force Palestinians into the enclaves, ghettos and prisons they now inhabit. The Jewish army did this. What could the UN have done? Condemn Israel? It has done this hundreds of times. It is not a bogus institution, but rather a real one, run by and dependent upon people and nations pursuing their interests through the UN. It cannot live up to its mandate unless the people and nations do and this is unlikely. The problem with all good intentions is that they required the cooperation of people, other people. The international courts and international laws mean nothing without enforcement. BTW — The US threatened and cajoled member states to vote for partition. It was not a popular idea then, any more than Isrqel is a popular country today. The fly in the ointment is always people.

    America’s president is a notorious Muslim-hater who has sought to bar people from the Islamic world from the United States.

    US should have barred all non-whites like the Founders intended.

    Also, 'hate' is when you aggressively attack others, not when you defend your turf from outsiders.
    Were Algerians and Vietnamese haters of France in their resistance struggles? No, they only hated French aggression and imperialism. They had no hostility against the French nation itself. They were only trying to reclaim their beloved homelands from foreign occupiers.

    Japan doesn't want to be invaded and colonized by Muslims. Is that 'hate'?

    Must a people invite demographic invasion to be on the side of angels? No, such a people HATE their own kind. Self-hate crime is the worst.

    Trump has allowed Russia and Iran to finish off ISIS in Syria. He also condemned the Iraq War and Libyan War. Notice that those who claim to love Muslims most did most to invade and destroy Muslim nations. And Saudis did a lot to destroy fellow Muslim nations Syria and Yemen.

    Now, if Trump's stupid talk about Iran turns into real action, then he would be lowdown scumbag. I suspect he has no real animus against Iran. He's just sucking up to Zionists. Paradoxically, one has to be more pro-Zionist if hated by Jews. Because Worship of Jews is the new religion and because 'antisemitism' is a cardinal sin, one has to prove one's is pro-Jewish when attacked by Jews. Since Jews say Trump is hitler, Trump has to show he's the best friend of Jews and shills for Israel. But, there's no guarantee that he will really have a war with Iran. He could be going for rhetoric only.

    Btw, if the US doesn't smash the Middle East, then there will be no wars, and that means no refugees. Muslims can then stay in their own nations. If Muslims wanna flee their own nations even in peacetime, it means they hate their own kind and prefer to live with whites. They are the self-haters. Why should the West welcome self-hating Muslims who don't want to live with their own kind?

    Anyway, no nation can survive by allowing massive foreign invasion aka mass immigration. Mass immigration IS invasion. Mass arrival of Jews led to destruction of Palestine. Mass arrival of Spanish led to demise of native peoples in Meso-America. Hawaiians are a minority in their own homeland because of white and yellow mass immigration.

    Anyone who pushes mass immigration is an imperialist.

    People like Hillary, Merkel, May, McCain, Biden, the Bush clan, and etc no longer identify with their own race, culture, and people. They identify with power and privilege. If they must serve globalism to stay in the game of power and privilege, they will do so.

    The difference between past imperialism and current imperialism is that the former was about one people colonizing another people's land whereas the latter is about ALL nations being demographically colonized by everyone as the all the elites of the world work together for their own aggrandizement and privilege. Of course, Israel gets pass-over rights in not being forced to allow mass invasion. But then, who controls globalism? Only Jews are allowed to have an arrangement where Jewish elites identify with and serve their ethnic kin.

    Of course, these immigrant-invaders do the passive/aggressive thing. They aggressively seek to colonize other nations but play 'victims' of 'hateful bigoted natives'.
    Just look at those Hindus. They want to take over Anglo-made worlds with massive colonization, but they act like 'victims' of 'racism' and 'xenophobia'. Invading other nations is now a 'human right' according to globo-dominated UN.
    Mass invasion by boat, foot, or by plane ticket is supposed to be a Right. So, the US has to offer 'sanctuary' to illegals who are sacralized as 'dreamers'.
    EU has to take in all those who invade by boat or come on foot.

    Natives are supposed to be into self-hate and shower love on invaders.

    How did the world become this stupid?

    Btw, if the US doesn't smash the Middle East, then there will be no wars, and that means no refugees. Muslims can then stay in their own nations. If Muslims wanna flee their own nations even in peacetime, it means they hate their own kind and prefer to live with whites. They are the self-haters. Why should the West welcome self-hating Muslims who don't want to live with their own kind?

    Anyway, no nation can survive by allowing massive foreign invasion aka mass immigration. Mass immigration IS invasion. Mass arrival of Jews led to destruction of Palestine. Mass arrival of Spanish led to demise of native peoples in Meso-America. Hawaiians are a minority in their own homeland because of white and yellow mass immigration.

    Anyone who pushes mass immigration is an imperialist.

    People like Hillary, Merkel, May, McCain, Biden, the Bush clan, and etc no longer identify with their own race, culture, and people. They identify with power and privilege. If they must serve globalism to stay in the game of power and privilege, they will do so.

    The difference between past imperialism and current imperialism is that the former was about one people colonizing another people's land whereas the latter is about ALL nations being demographically colonized by everyone as the all the elites of the world work together for their own aggrandizement and privilege. Of course, Israel gets pass-over rights in not being forced to allow mass invasion. But then, who controls globalism? Only Jews are allowed to have an arrangement where Jewish elites identify with and serve their ethnic kin.

    Of course, these immigrant-invaders do the passive/aggressive thing. They aggressively seek to colonize other nations but play 'victims' of 'hateful bigoted natives'.
    Just look at those Hindus. They want to take over Anglo-made worlds with massive colonization, but they act like 'victims' of 'racism' and 'xenophobia'. Invading other nations is now a 'human right' according to globo-dominated UN.
    Mass invasion by boat, foot, or by plane ticket is supposed to be a Right. So, the US has to offer 'sanctuary' to illegals who are sacralized as 'dreamers'.
    EU has to take in all those who invade by boat or come on foot.

    Natives are supposed to be into self-hate and shower love on invaders.

    How did the world become this stupid?

    Immigration is only a privilege, not a right.

    "US should have barred all non-whites like the Founders intended."


    you mean people the founders considered filthy "non-whites" subhumans like Italians, Poles, slavs and jews?

    There is no truth to your comments at all.

    The Palestinians are like blacks living in Detroit. They live on welfare, they crap all over their own society, they backstab any members of their own society who don’t toe the party line, and they are insanely jealous of anyone who is more successful than themselves (their Jewish neighbors, for example). They are a failed culture and a failed people, for which they deserve to win a Darwin award.

    Screw them.

    You are not distinguishing between Christian and Muslim Palestinians. There is a difference, and the Christians feel it most painfully whenever the Muslims expand their power.

    Actually, the Arab refugees (and now their great-grandchildren) have been extensively subsidized since the foundation of UNRWA in 1949. As much as 50% of the personal income flow in Gaza consists of UNRWA dole.

    Israel, on the other hand, has built from the ground up one of the most productive and affluent countries in the world outside the occidental core (trailing only Japan, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea). Unlike those in the Asian tigers, Israelis have an ample number of children, so are not facing the social crises these other loci are.

    The problem is that the Christians side with the Moslems, which means they side with the enemies of Christendom. And they wonder why the rest of Christendom pays little attention to them.

    Nobody ever talks about a three-state solution, do they?

  50. In the Mideast, only Turkey remains a truly independent Muslim nation that’s not under Washington’s thumb.

    Turkey is not Arab. They would rather be under Europe’s thumb.

    Probably to qualify for a German-financed bailout. After all, that’s why Greece and Portugal are in.

    Many, if only nominally. But Lebanon was the last Arab one.

    No, President Trump is not a Muslim hater as you state. He is a realist. The negotiations with the "Palestinians" as they call themselves is not going anywhere since they have aligned their policies with the terrorist group Hamas so it is time to take a stand.

    Israel is a sovereign nation and if the Israelis say Jerusalem is their capital so be it. Congress decided that more than two decades ago, but none of the previous Presidents have dared to implement it. You also forget that Russia several years ago recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    A two-state solution is still possible as the decision only concern West-Jerusalem.

    Note also that Israel has thousands of years of history in the area while the so-called "Palestinians" are mostly immigrants and have none. They should really have been moved to Jordan when the British Mandate was divided.

    To cortect you Uranus israel is not a soverieng country by international law, israel is a rouge nuclear state by military occupation. Jews have no indigenous land claim only a tulmadic fairy tale about an imaginary entity that promised them land not Palestine just any land they choose to steal.
