2. Sick Left Israeli Media angry and sad at recognition
DeadJewishSouls ,   Jerusalem   (12.06.17)
Turning to 90% of the Israeli media this morning tv or radio and
the faces were all tragic or filled with fear and anxiety what should
have caused them joy and rejoicing the recognition of Jerusalem
as the capital of Israel was instead a day of mourning moaning
and sadness , there were no fireworks no singing dancing or smiles
from these self hating insecure Jews of accident of birth , how is
these media criminals are allowed to dominate the air waves of
a healthy and proud Jewish Nation , if anyone has any answers please forward them to the Likud which has refused to help start up a
Pro Zionist News Channel just one just one why why why ?
3. One million Muslims expelled in Burma. Israel do them same.

4. Once again, the Arabs can only riot and burn stuff.

Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel only makes things better for the Arabs. Israel will have to fund infrastructure improvements to bring 'east' Jerusalem up to par with the rest of the city. The Arabs will still use Al Aqsa, nobody is taking anything away from them.

It simply means that a 'Palestinian' state will have to have some other city as its capital, something that everyone knew was going to happen.

If the Arabs, who are running around like chickens with their heads cut off, would simply take advantage of the situation, we could have peace in a few months. But Abbas and ilk only know how to reject everything and threaten terrible retribution. That tactic hasn't helped the Arabs for 70 years. I wonder if they are smart enough to try something different? Probably not.

Abbas is no leader. He has squandered every opportunity to help the Arabs. He enjoys the prestige and money that comes with the job, nothing more. He jets around the planet talking to world leaders who politely smile at him while ignoring everything he says.

Trump's declaration of recognition is the first constructive step taken in 40 years. Now Israel can be magnanimous and give ground to the Arabs, as long as they act like human beings. But with Abbas ordering 'Days of Rage', I don't see how they will.
5. There is no "Palestinian president". Try Abbas for murder
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.06.17)
When Fishman speaks of "Palestine" and the "Palestinian president", he is lying. Neither one exists. Such lies also glorify mass murderer Abbas, who engineered the horrific Munich Massacre and many others. Israel needs to put Abbas on trial for mass murder, just like Eichmann. Let us now and forever end all homage to the evil fiction of "Palestine".
6. And we are united by The Temple Mount

7. Palestinians united by hate
