On Nakba day...

... and while the Israelis celebrate moving the Embassy of Mordor to Jerusalem, 38 Palestinians (to date and this date isn't over yet) have been killed and 1,703 have been injured by the Israeli 'Defence' Forces.

It appears the Chosen Ones are exempt from the 'Thou Shalt not Kill' command...

The rest of the world in the mean time does nothing:

Recent history indicates that Israel can “get away with” a great deal. It long ago closed Gaza’s port, airport and land border. The Palestinians’ traditional supporters in the Arab world, especially Saudi Arabia and Egypt, ignore them. Russia and China express sympathy while doing nothing. Nominal aid comes from Iran in the form of mostly ineffectual weapons for Hamas, a rare instance of the Shiite theocrats arming Sunni fundamentalists. Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin spoke for most of his countrymen when he said of Gaza, “If only it would just sink into the sea.”

  1. Perhaps an Arab country or five could simply grant 'citizenship' to the Palestinians? Oh, wait, that would effectively END their confrontation with Israel. Never mind.

  2. There hasn't been any significant friction between Israel and its Arab neighbours for a LONG time. Even with Syria, with which Israel is still technically at war, no shots have been fired in anger for the longest of time (the recent attacks on the Golan were the work of Iranians).

    Why would the Palestinians even accept to be repatriated? (There does exist a significant WW Palestinian diaspora).

    Would YOU accept that?

    Palestinians have often been treated like dirt in their Arab host countries: see Syria and Sabra and Shatilah (massacre).

  3. With this embassy move we know for sure that your boy Trump has completely capitulated to the Zionists.

    And we have ironclad proof that the US in NOT an honest broker in I/P. But we already knew that, right?

    Wasn't there a rocket attack launched from Syria just the other day?

    Oh, wait, that was the Iranian's/Shi'a again. Perhaps IRAN should make the Palestinian's it's citizens. After all, the Sunni's are ignoring the Palestinians PRECISELY because of their recent Shi'a alliance. It's got NOTHING to do with Israel.

  5. And no, the US is NOT an honest broker in the region. But I'd challenge you to name one.

    The Iranian's are pissed at the US for stopping pretending that Iran isn't seeking a nuke. And the Iranian's are now making the Palestinians pay the price for their anger.

  6. It's like the movie BRAVEHEART... only the Palestinian's are being used by the Iranians the same way that the English king used the Irish... as disposable 'trash' who's lives don't cost the king as much as actual 'arrows' would.

    As King Assad of Syria once called suicide bombing, the poor man's atomic bomb.

  7. So far, not very many Sunni's have turned 'suicide bomber'. But thanks to Khomeini, it's now in the Shi'a DNA. And they won't stop until they have actual nukes.

  9. In 1978, Khomeini changed the ME FOREVER.

  10. Yes, that attack was Iranian. It's the first attack on the Golan in decades but it didn't come from Assad's forces.

    Even if Iran acquired a bomb, using it would mean sudden death. Personally I don't think they're pursuing one.

    Israel has 200 - 400 nukes, with delivery systems.

    1. The 'best' way to incentivate the Iranians to pursue AWs is to leave the Deal. Well done Trump!

  11. The quietism from Najaf is almost dead. Moqtada al Sadr will turn in one of two directions, and THAT decision will decide EVERYTHING.

    1. Agreed that the Iranians use the Pals as pawns. But I think you overestimate the importance if the Ir. Revolution re. the region.

      Q: What do you think about Ivanka behaving like an 'unelected WH official'?

    2. I think she's the perfect ambassador for cutting the ribbon on an embassy. But I wouldn't give her any more "authority" than THAT.

    3. ...and I think you underestimate its' importance. The Shi's are required to circle the Qaaba, not pray in <a href="https://youtu.be/J6XRlKcFqwc:>Shi'a shrines</a> to martyrs.

  12. What Israel does, or what America or Iran does, mean nothing.

    1. Either Moqtada al Sadr will bring Iran to heal, or NO ONE will.

    2. The last quietist in Iraq... Moqtada al Sadr preferred marja.
