A President Missing the Point.

I see that Israel has given approval for hundreds of homes to be built in occupied East Jerusalem as a result of the pro-Israeli Trump taking office. ‘Now we can build,’ they are crowing triumphantly, and the Palestinians face yet more abuse and humiliation.

You know, when Trump talks about defeating terrorism he seems to be missing a fundamental point (as you would expect of such a man, I suppose.) Doesn’t he realise that he is conniving in the very actions that spawn terrorism in the first place? And if Israel’s bullying behaviour in occupied Palestinian territory does produce a terrorist outrage, and Americans do get killed or have their limbs blown away, I hope that the citizens of the US will have the good sense to lay the first level of blame firmly at the steps of the White House.
