Palestinian leadership launches ballistic tirades as US Embassy announcement nears

Palestinian leadership launches ballistic tirades as US Embassy announcement nears

Trump a “Lunatic” and a “Fascist”

Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Despite reports that an announcement could come as soon as Monday morning, January 23, 2017, The White House says it is still in the early stages of discussions:

The White House said on Sunday that it is only in the early stages of talks to fulfill President Donald Trump’s pledge to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, an action that would likely spark anger in the Arab world.

“We are at the very beginning stages of even discussing this subject,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said in a statement. Aides said no announcement of an embassy move was imminent.

But as Trump’s inauguration approached, and now that he is President, there has been an escalating campaign by the Palestinian leadership which both incites violence behind the scenes and then uses that violence to warn of further violence should the move take place:

The key to the strategy is to falsely portray the Embassy move as an attack on Islam and to equate it with an attack on the al-Aqsa mosque. The internationalization of the dispute has been the singular Palestinian political focus since Israel’s independence.

Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub, a fairly notorious character, is adding to the escalation with an over-the-top attack on Trump and threats of violence.

MEMRI reports, Fatah Central Committee Member Jibril Rajoub: Trump a “Lunatic” and a “Fascist”; His Plan to Move Israeli Embassy to Jerusalem – Declaration of War against Whole World

Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub recently called U.S. President Trump’s plan to relocate the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem a “declaration of war” against the whole world and said “We want the confrontation to be between this new Fascist in the White House and the whole world – Christians as well as Muslims.” Speaking on the official Palestinian Authority TV channel on January 18, Rajoub called Trump a “lunatic” and asked: “Why does he think that he has the right to give them the keys …

By having escalated the threats, the Palestinian leadership may scare off Trump. If so, it would be a blow to Trump’s credibility given how prominent the Embassy promise has been.

If Trump follows through, the Palestinian leadership either has to deliver on its threats or lose its primary negotiating tool, the threat of violence.

Palestinian answers to to everything; threats, violence and killing.

As I’ve said before…

just how it this threat different than the status quo?

When violence is your only language, you lose any capacity to ratchet up your rhetoric.

the Palestinian leadership either has to deliver on its threats or lose its primary negotiating tool, the threat of violence.

Not really. Threats of this sort don’t have an expiration date.

And they can’t lose this as a tool. Postulate that they did, somehow, lose it; then all they’d have to do is stab someone waiting at a bus stop, or drive a car into a crowd, or bomb a supermarket, or machine-gun a restaurant, or fire off a few rockets, and they’d be back in the game again. Any loss would be transient.

Trump has to keep his promises or his presidency will be a failure.

They will have to deliver it for internal consumption, it seems to me, not as a scare tactic.

Gonna be violence anyway.. Might as well make the move.

    The MSM and many college profs will say that all future violence was caused by our moving the Embassy. If we hadn’t done that, everyone would have been friendly and happy.

    They will make believe that the last 70 years of violence never happened.

If you move your embassy there will be violence, if you don’t move your embassy there will be violence. Beware our violence.

The rules are changing Jibril, I’d tread more carefully if I were you.

You didn’t actually see him, but the likes of this lunatic marched in the ‘Hysterical Leftist Women’s March’ this week. That ‘march’ was organized by radical islamists. No wonder the Hollywood idiots of the left showed up:

Women’s March Organizer Recently Met Ex-Hamas Operative, Has Family Ties To Terror Group

“Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.

“Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “Champion of Change,” was speaking at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.”

Good, move the embassy, do everything you can to inconvenience the Palestinians. Fold their lands into Israel and end this Palestinian nationhood farce once and for all.

These poor P.A. Pussies should have had a contingent in DC on Saturday. That would have shown Trump how serious they are about this move. I’m a voter whose first choice was not Trump. But I’m now a believer that he has the fortitude to tell the hacks in the Mid-East if they can’t form a successful united government, go tell it to the United Nations snowflakes. They will listen to any sweet nothing whispered into their bent ears.

The Palestinian leaders can reconcile their differences with Jordan, or perhaps Egypt would be willing to participate in a land deal. The Palestinians deserve better representatives.

    if the Arabs want to be led by the Iranian lunatics and the (communist) Russians, so be it.
    Muslims have been at war with us since the founding of our country (‘halls of Tripoli’, Marines song).
    in reality, none of the Arabs like the “Balistinians”.

    the war against Israel started before 1948 with the Imams siding with the Chermans and providing shock troops.

    If we, as a free republic, are not willing to stand up to the abuser of women and beheaders of humanity, who will be.

    the time is now to get out of the UN and get the UN out of the USA.
    If the Euroweenies, who we have twice bailed out in the last century, will not back the USA, let NATO figure out how to pay for their own defense. They are on their way to being taken over by the Arab hoards. Some European countries (England for one) see the advantage in not losing their national identity.
    Maybe the French and Chermanns too.

Trump has to right the ship Obama tipped over with his ambush of Israel.
Some pundits pointed out at the time that with the UN declaring Jerusalem a Jew free zone, the door would be opened for this move.

To what extent does Israel have a say in this? (Not a rhetorical question). Granted, the threat of violence from Palestinians, Hamas, et al, is a constant, ongoing given, but is there risk of drawing threats from ME actors not currently threatening Israel? Is there risk of moving passive Palestinian allies into the aggressive mode? If so, I think Israel ought to have substantive input to the decision. This is not an area of strength for me, so I ask questions.

    A) the Isreali government, unless I am gravely mistaken, has already issued a statement welcoming such a move.

    B) What ME actors not currently threatening Israel? You may reply the Saudis or the Egyptians, but best reports indicate that both of those nations are receiving a lot of undercover military aid and intelligence from Israel. They don’t want to risk losing that, not when their governments are far more worried about Isis and it’s offshoots than the tiresome pali’s. (who they see as wannabe Isis recruits)

    In my opinion, the biggest surprise out of an embassy move will be how LITTLE actually happens – other than the usual pile of blah, blah, blah, WAAH WAAH WAAH.

    3) “Is there risk of moving passive Palestinian allies into the aggressive mode?” No such animal exists.

Move the embassy. Let the pallys respond violently. It is not in our interests to create and prop up another failed state governed by genocidal hatred that exports only terrorism. Then we respond by making the rubble bounce until they beg to be allowed to surrender unconditionally. We recognize Israel as sovereign over all the territory bilaterally as part of a mutual defense treaty. End of dispute. They lost. Get a grip and grow up.

    Trump understands that this is a situation which has settled into a nasty 30 year stalemate which no one is capable of resolving, and one in which every player is scared to take a bold move for fear of what they might lose. (power and land)

    Only one thing can disrupt a frozen situation like that – an outsider needs to step in and kick over the anthill. Of course the ants will scurry and try to bite anything they can, but in the end, a new reality will have been created and new solutions will be possible.

Fatah/Hamas’s credibility and bullying histrionics and attempts at coercion are unavailing from logical and moral standpoints, and, should be ignored. Their primary argument can distilled down down to, “Don’t move the embassy site, or else we’ll engage in more terrorist attacks than we currently already are!
