This Year In Jerusalem!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY WMAL MAY 16, 2018

         THE PROTESTS BY PALESTINIANS AND EUROPEANS OVER THE OPENING OF THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM IS WRONG ON AT LEAST TWO FRONTS.

         ONE IS THAT EVERY NATION HAS A RIGHT TO DETERMINE ITS OWN CAPITAL. IMAGINE IF THE BRITISH DECIDED TO CLAIM PART OF OUR CAPITOL FOR THEIR OWN. I KNOW, WASHINGTON IS NO LONGER DISPUTED TERRITORY, BUT STILL.

         THE OTHER ERROR IS THE ONE EXPRESSED BY MANY EUROPEAN NATIONS AND SOME LIBERALS IN THE U.S. AND THAT IS THAT WHAT ISRAEL AND AMERICA DO, OR DON’T DO, AFFECTS THE LEVEL OF ANTIPATHY TOWARDS THE JEWISH STATE AND TO THIS COUNTRY.

         A REGULAR READING OF STATEMENTS, SERMONS AND ARAB MEDIA AND STATEMENTS FROM POLITICAL LEADERSHIP IN THE AREA PROVE THAT NOTHING WILL DISSUADE THEM FROM THEIR DECLARED INENTIONS TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP AND KILL OR EXPEL ALL JEWS FROM THE LAND. AFTER DECADES OF WARS AND TERRORIST ATTACKS ONE MIGHT THINK THEY WOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

         PRESIDENTS BUSH AND OBAMA PROMISED TO MOVE THE U.S. EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM. NEITHER DID. PRESIDENT TRUMP NOT ONLY PROMISED TO DO SO, HE HAS DONE IT. GOOD FOR HIM AND FOR ISRAEL. I’M CAL THOMAS AND THAT’S MY COMMENTARY ON WMAL.
