Trump's Illegal Move on Jerusalem is Backfiring

December 18, 2017 "Information Clearing House" -  Tribalism and nationalism are rearing their ugly heads and people suffer.

The people of the world are waking up despite the fact that most mainstream

media is now "managed" to give that Zionist message of danger from Iran,

Hizballah etc, while ignoring war crimes and crimes against humanity being

perpetuated daily by Israel and its puppets like Mohammad Bin Salman. What

media is not managed, is blocked in most of the Arab world run by those

dictators. The mainstream media is complicit in ensuring people are not

aware of what is going on. Imagine if a Muslim sniper shot an American or a

Jewish double amputee who lost his legs to another Muslim attack years

earlier? How would the media have reacted. How would the media react if a

dictator who is not friendly to the US was doing what he and his senile

father were doing now. They just arrested the rich guys in their country

and even visiting rich guys from other countries (like Hariri from Lebanon

and Sabeeh Amasri from Jordan) and are stripping them of heir wealth! They

are beheading any opposition.

On good news, the growing mass movement exposing Israeli apartheid

continues to grow and the Zionists are feeling frustrated that despite

increased spending on propaganda by 20 fold over 15 years, the anti-Zionist

movement continues to grow. Instead of admitting they need to start to

respect human rights, Zionists debate doing more propaganda/hasbara. See

this must read report on the analysis by Zionists of their own-movement.

Trump's illegal move on Jerusalem is backfiring. It exposed all the puppets

paying the Zionist movement and bending over backward to please Zionist

occupied Washington. It is forcing those who were close to selling it all to

begin to back-track. It also exposed what Trump called the deal of the

century: profiting rich dictators and sacrificing tens of millions of

Palestinians, Egyptians, Yemenis, Hijazis (I refuse to use the term derived

from "Saudi Arabia") and other Arabs. To be precise the plan is sacrificing

the interests of 350 million Arabs and 1.6 billion Muslims for the short

term interests sake of a handful of billionaire Zionists and the Jews who

foolishly follow them to the edge of the cliff. Short term, the Trump plan

is to consolidate Israel's control over Jerusalem and the rest of the

occupied West Bank, settle refugees in Jordan and Sinai and strengthen

Israel's hand. The resistance forces stretching from Lebanon to Iran and

Yemen must be weakened to pass this horrible scheme. That is why these

resistance forces had to be defeated especially now that Iran, Syria,

Lebanon and Iraq won over the US/Israel created and funded "Islamist"

militias including the so called "Islamic State". Yet, the colonial idea of

divide and conquer is falling apart as resistance is coming from Shi'a and

Sunnis and Chrristians and Kurds and Druse and Yezidis and many others.

Trump made his biggest plunder by his Jerusalem announcement. The Sunni and

Shia leaders who gathered in Istanbul included heavy weights like Turkish

leader Erdogan and Iranian leader Rouhani. Despite heavy pressure and

blackmail from the "Saudi" puppets, Mahmoud Abbas and King Hussain also

attended. Much will now happen but Trump and his Zionist son-in-law have

only a few more cards they think they can play (but they will be equally

catastrophic blunders). Conflict and suffering will ensue but there are no

winners in 21st century wars. Spoiled teenage Israel might be the biggest

loser of the Zionist gamble. They and their sponsors like Trump think they

can manage to continue to exploit and go against the will of the majority

of the 1.6 billion Muslims and 2.5 billion Christians (and some 3 million

anti-Zionist and post-Zionist Jews). Sorry folks: Jerusalem will not be a

"Jewish capital" and not even a capital of apartheid Israel. But the price

of arrogance can be high.

Whenever I think the “Israeli army” had sunk to the lowest level, they

surprise me more. For an Israeli nipper to assassinate a double amputee in

his wheel chair is beyond sick (the civilian Ibrahim Abutharya had lost his

legs to a previous zionist attack on Gaza). In another case, a child who

was jailed at 13 for 3 months for demonstrating was hit in the head and s

in critical condition (Moh’d Tamimi of Nebi Saleh is now 15 and fighting

for his life). Words escape me.

An anti-tank guided weapon made in Europe and sold to the United States,

ended up in the hands of Daesh in Iraq within just two months, the Conflict

Armament Research (CAR) group said in a newly-published report. The

acquisition of an anti-tank weapon by Daesh exposes the fact the CIA

knowingly took great risks to arm extremists in a desperate bid to oust

Syrian President Bashar Assad

The unknown hell of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon

Where Does the PLO Leadership Go After Jerusalem?

[they are meeting tonight to decide what to do. I hope they take real

couragous positions and end the charade of Oslo]

As for most of us in occupied Palestine we continue to resist in many, many

forms. See my book on "Popular Resistance in Palestine: A history of Hope

and Empowerment".

Meanwhile stay human and come visit us
