Trump and Jerusalem: MSM brings out the big guns

President Trump visited Jerusalem earlier this year and will effectively recognise it as the Israeli capital by moving US diplomats there

“Supermodel Bella Hadid has condemned President Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In a scathing Instagram post, the Victoria’s Secret Angel branded the announcement as “absurd, unfair and one-sided”.”

Wow. I never knew that being a supermodel makes you an expert in Middle Eastern politics.

“Hadid’s family has strong ties with the regions. Her father – real estate mogul Mohamed Hadid – is a Palestinian, who was born in Nazareth, and has lived in both Syria and Lebanon.”

And I have strong ties to Britain but that doesn’t make me an expert on British politics.

“Bella said hearing the news made her “cry”.”

“Israeli captured Arab East Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Middle East War, then later annexed it in a move not recognised internationally.”

And who did Jerusalem belong to before that? Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since before the time of King David.

“Palestinians want it to be the capital of a future independent state and resolution of its status is fundamental to any peace-making.”

If the Palestinians wanted a two-state solution they would have formed their own State back when modern Israel was first created.

“The TREATMENT of the Palestinian people is unfair, one-sided and should not be tolerated,” Hadid continued. “I stand with Palestine.

Cry me a river. Fact is Palestinian Israelis have a higher standard of living and more rights than Palestinian living in the Palestinian-controlled territories. And what about the terror-tunnels, dug using child labour?

Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem is a no-brainer. Finally, a US president is recognising the obvious – that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews and that a two-state solution isn’t a goer and never was. Why would anyone want to give half their house to someone who wants to kill them?

But if this is the standard of opposition that the media can muster against Trump then I don’t think Donald has anything to worry about. The thing the media needs to get is that Trump is a lot smarter than any of them, period.

What Trump does is bait his enemies and critics into shooting themselves in the foot. And he does it all the time. Trump knew full well what the reaction of the Arab community would be. And he also knew what side the MSM would take. In other words, he’s shown the MSM as siding with terrorists.

Man, I’d hate to play chess against the Don.
