Wow, this is great news. Trump stands up for Israel once again.
Already some, though, like J Street are trying to paint just how devastating this will be for the Palestinians. But if it is so devastating, then perhaps they can take all the money they pay to their esteemed terrorists and used it for something more legitimate, like food, shelter, and clothing.
Also let their rich Muslim Brotherhood buddies in Qatar bail them out if they need it so much. I’m sure Erdogan can talk them into it. After all, he’s their Caliph and their cause is the apple of his eye.
