  • How Trump's Jerusalem Move Just Helped Iran Win the Mideast
    • "The Saudis are supine". Ah, not quite: "The decision goes against the "historical and permanent rights of the Palestinian people", the (Saudi) royal court said, calling on Trump to reconsider his decision.
      "The kingdom has already warned of the serious consequences of such an unjustified and irresponsible move," the statement said.
      "The US move represents a significant decline in efforts to push a peace process and is a violation of the historically neutral American position on Jerusalem."

      In other words, yes you're right that Trump just handed Iran a rhetorical victory and the Saudis a setback for their regional anti-Iran strategy.

      Israel, on the other hand, naturally loves Trump for it. So regardless of whether or not the alleged "Saudi-Israeli" convergence was going on behind the scenes, Trump has just killed it. And following the Saudi condemnation, Trump issued an unusually pointed directive to the Saudis to end their criminal blockade on Yemen, just a few days after the Iranian-backed Houthis murdered their 3-year ally, former Yemeni tyrant Saleh, which thus leaves the Houthis supreme in the region of former North Yemen where the anti-Saudi Saleh-Houthi alliance was ruling.

  • Top Ten Myths about Israeli Attack on Gaza

      Then why don't you leave that stolen land if rockets are falling on it? Sderot is stolen Palestinian land, quite simply thieved, without compensation. The people who own that land were driven into Gaza and are probably among those firing rockets with the aim of coming home. So your best defense would be to depart.
