Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — and leftists go crazy

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Of course Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. That’s been true for thousands of years. Read your Bible. Or read a history book.

The reason why so many countries, like Canada and the United States, don’t have our embassies in Jerusalem is because of the Arab countries surrounding Israel. For decades the oil-dependent west has had to balance being normal, and having their embassies in Israel’s normal capital city, with the thuggish demands of oil-rich Arab dictatorships.

The United States Congress has voted overwhelmingly to move the capital to Jerusalem. But those same politicians knew that U.S. presidents, both Republican and Democrat, would sign a “waiver” at the last moment, saying it would be too damaging to U.S. interests to actually move it.

But then a funny thing happened: Donald Trump.

Today, he just did it. I'll show you his press conference.

Al Jazeera had a helpful round-up of all the Muslim world leaders. Some anger and bluster, but not much.

We’ll see if there’s a third intifada. But this time, I doubt it. Because moving the embassy to Jerusalem is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of strength.

And we know how Arab dictators react to weakness, and strength.

But here’s what I really want to show you: Western liberal reaction. NBC News, CNN, the UK Guardian, which said:

Donald Trump to plunge Middle East into 'fire with no end' with Jerusalem speech

Wow. Not even the Arabs said that.

I bet if Stephen Harper were prime minister, he'd move our embassy to Jerusalem, too.

But Justin Trudeau is more into paying terrorists like Omar Khadr $10.5 million. That’s how he thinks peace will arrive. The peace of submission...

NEXT:'s Joel Pollak comes on for a closer look at Trump's decision, and what will happen now.

THEN: You've probably heard about Bitcoin, but if you still don't quite understand what this "cryptocurrency" is all about, watch my conversation tonight with Preston Byrne, a Fellow with the Adam Smith Institute. 

He's alsoan expert on the topic, as well as on blockchain and other technology that's starting to change the way we live.

A gutsy move by Trump. A clear message has been sent by this POTUS.
Any peace efforts undertaken will have to be taken seriously by the Muslims! So far, any attempts have been kiboshed by the Muslims with their continual whining and aggression! It is a given any agreement brokered by the Trump Administration will have to be considered or face the consequences. The time of “stamping of feet” is over, well, except for the lefties of course!

Israel is our greatest and most loyal ally in the Middle East, as well as the region’s only true democracy. Elections are free and fair and held at periodic intervals, Christian and Muslim minorities have religious freedom, women and men have equal rights, and homosexuals enjoy the same freedoms as heterosexuals.

By contrast, Israel’s neighbours, including the Palestinians, often apologize for, if not support terrorist groups, including Hamas and Hezbollah. Furthermore, Jews, Christians, and Yazidis are routinely massacred in the region, as are dissenting Muslims and apostates. Women are second class citizens and homosexuality is punishable by death. Where are the feminists and gay rights activists when you need them?

Let us commend President Donald Trump (with a special shout out to his UN ambassador, Nikki Haley) for pledging to do the honourable thing and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, a symbolically fitting recognition of our alliance with the Jewish state and its adherence to western democratic principles.

Shame on British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron, and the bureaucratic elites in the EU for playing the cowardly moral appeasement game by supporting the morally inferior. Any faults Israel may possess pale in comparison with those of her neighbours.

…Why have we invited people with such hatred in their hearts into our country? People who do not understand that Canada stands behind Israel, always has and always will, need to get used to it. Israel is our ally after all, as well as the only western democracy in the middle east. Why is the outrage not over the threats and the violence against Jews and the west for daring to return the capitol of Israel to its rightful place?
Trudeau doesn’t want to insult his ‘refugees’. He knows they would riot. He is a chicken sht.
Palestinians hatred is poison, and now thanks to Justin we have to live with it.
For now.

So the Muslims used to brag about conquering the Jewish capitol as proof that Islam is the final and greatest religion (until about 1968), now they say it never existed. Actually Arafat stated at camp David that the Jewish capitol was somewhere south of Jerusalem, to which rumor has it, that even King Billy the Kinky rolled his eyes.
commented 2017-12-07 11:07:26 -0500
Middle East Peace? LOL! What a load of goat crap.
The so-called Palestinians and all the rest of the Islamic world have absolutely no intention whatsoever of living in peace with Israel, and never have, two-state or not, official policy or not. The plan has always been to eradicate the Jew and wipe Israel off the map. Anything else is pure BS, misinformation, or taqiyya.
Surely the big-brains in the Knesset and MOSSAD know this…
The WORLD needs to start The Big Pushback against Islam, NOW!
As a Canadian citizen, I demand Canada moves our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, NOW!
Do we have to have a referendum!?

The left wing nuts at the CBC are all over Trump on this ,there would not have been one word if their God Obama had done it.

I see Andrew is back. I’ve noticed a dearth of leftist commentary for a while. If all goes according to previous experience the leftist flood gates will open again. They must have had a strategy meeting so were unavailable.
commented 2017-12-07 10:28:03 -0500
As usual the reaction if the peaceloving Palestinians is to start rioting and burning flags. Nothing will satiate their stated desire to obliterate the Jewish State from the planet.
An American Flag will fly in Jerusalem and let the Palestinians try to bring it down.

Great show , EZRA
Huggers and kissers of the death cult haven’t worked, so lets try something different , and let’s cut them off from the 300 ,000 ,000 that the us sends them every year , and I hope The TRUMPSTER does an audit of that money, a serious audit

The leftists did not just go crazy it started on day one for them.

Well he did say he was going to do it.
The left media and the uninformed sheep says his decision will jeopardize peace talks between Palestine and Israel.
Let that sink in !

What is it with leftists constantly making references to sticking the Jews into Alaska?

Remember how earlier this year, all the leftists called Trump an anti semitic nazi? Well, the news of Jerusalem sure proved otherwise.

Aman DUHuginkiss how can they steal what is already theirs? Now tell us why no Muslim country gives them as many rights as Israel? Now go be a good bigot.

Aman DUHuginkiss how did the middle east become so Islamic? Oh right 1400 years of land theft , mass murder. There i corrected your ignorant statement.

J Kay Good sarcasm, they say this like it means there will be a change. As if there was peace and understanding form the terrorists before.

AMAN DAHUGINKISS is not compatible with western culture. I’ll buy your ticket buddy. It would be my pleasure.

Surrounded by five enemy armies screaming that they’re going to throw the Jews into the sea only to see the arabs get their collective ass kicked. Shame is a bitch huh, Aman Hotdog.

I agree with moving the Embassy, but NOT NOW as he already has too many fights going on. He should have waited a year and maybe North Korea would be solved. He has the troubles at home with the Senate election.
Theresa May and almost every Politician on both sides in the UK are against him for what they say is him preaching hate. Solve these problems first before taking on new problems.

Did you hear what happened in the UK yesterday ? Their Intelligence foiled two separate Terrorist attacks. The first was they were going to kill little Prince George as he went to school. Next, these two terrorists had an improvised bomb which were going to blow up the gate at 10 Downing Street, and then they were going to kill Theresa May with their knives. British Intelligence has stopped 8 attacks in 2 weeks. CTV News.
Trump was right again; every British Politician should apologize to Trump.

- The left seems to be forever surprised that Donald Trump keeps his promises.
Good observation, Paul.
I remember listening to the CBC just after Stephen Harper’s first term win. The guy on the radio said that what he liked about Harper was that he kept his promises. What he didn’t’t like about Harper was that he kept his promises. Pretty insightful for a Lefty.

UK Guardian stated “Donald Trump to plunge Middle East into ‘fire with no end’ with Jerusalem speech” What the hell do they think has been happening in the Middle East, since and before, the time of Christ.

Like all MSM, they are just Marxist Spin Doctors.

Most msm outlets edited the President’s speech to exclude the reference of 20 years of waivers. No mention of the law that was passed in 1995 which requires repeated waivers. They are calling it “stunning” “concerning” “shocking” etc….predictable tilts!
Interesting interview with Joel Pollack. President Trump’s decision is sound.
commented 2017-12-06 20:59:20 -0500
- The left seems to be forever surprised that Donald Trump keeps his promises. He promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem & now he is doing so. Is it really surprising that the most extreme reaction over this is coming from the left in the West? They seem to have become more extreme – in words anyway. America has paid the price of weak leadership in the past. Now they’re reaping the benefits of having a strong leader & the left hates it.

- I believe that the fact that the mainstream media & other leftists have tried to paint Trump as unstable & dangerous has actually increased his street cred on the world stage. Trudeau is weak & ineffective & that cannot be hidden by the mainstream media when it comes to foreign affairs – it’s becoming impossible for them to hide it in domestic affaires either. He’s becoming seen as a crying clown.

- I kind of wish I had gotten into Bitcoin some time ago as well. I just didn’t understand it well enough though. Internet currency that isn’t under the control of any government. It’s largely immune to government interference (so far) but not to market forces. Nothing that is traded is immune to market forces. So there will be ups & downs. If I was a currency trader I might look into investing in it.
