Warren to Israel: Revert back to two-state solution — or else “everything is on the table”

Westlake Legal Group warren-israel Warren to Israel: Revert back to two-state solution — or else “everything is on the table” two state solution The Blog Palestinian Authority Israel Elizabeth Warren 2020 Democratic primaries

“Everything”? While Donald Trump’s opponents in the Democratic primary are calling him out for betraying our Kurdish allies, one of the front-runners suggests doing the same thing to our Israeli allies. Speaking in Iowa over the weekend, Elizabeth Warren offered what in diplomatic terms would be an ultimatum, one that hints at the use of military force, in order to demand that Israel adopt a plan that the Palestinians have never honestly backed in the first place:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Saturday said that she was open to making aid to Israel conditional on whether the government ceases settlement building in the West Bank.

“Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements, [but] that does not move us in the direction of a two-state solution,” Warren responded when asked what her stance was on aid and settlement-building.

“It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table,” she said, before repeating: “Everything is on the table.”

To the unschooled, which apparently includes Warren, “everything is on the table” is a formulation that US presidents use in relation to hostile nations. It serves as a warning of potential military action to enforce American or international interests. It is not the kind of language one uses with allies. Given the amount of criticism Trump got for his weird letter to Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, one would think Warren’s threat would get a similar amount of criticism, or at least scrutiny.

The Washington Free Beacon certainly took notice of it:

In a formulation more commonly deployed by previous presidents in threatening the use of force against America’s enemies, Warren repeated the phrase but did not clarify precisely what pressure—military or otherwise—might be brought to bear. …

Her remarks are likely to raise eyebrows in the Jewish and pro-Israel communities, which, while largely Democratic, continue to favor the U.S. alliance with the region’s only democracy.

So how long does Netanyahu have to comply with President Warren’s ultimatum until we shoot cruise missiles at Tel Aviv? Yes, I know that won’t happen, but Democrats can’t have it both ways. They can’t complain about Trump eroding diplomatic norms and betraying allies and then have their own frontrunners emphatically tell Israel that either they comply with our policies or else “everything is on the table.”

In truth, the Israelis would prefer a two-state solution too, if the Palestinians would truly accept it as a permanent settlement of the issue. Israel needs to keep the Palestinians out to maintain the intrinsic nature of their Jewish state, which is why Israel will never bend on the so-called “right of return.” They can’t afford to annex millions of Palestinians and give them the vote, and they can’t afford to annex the West Bank and Gaza Strip without giving them the vote. Even the settlements would be negotiable in a final deal, although not those on the hills surrounding Jerusalem, strategic positions which the Israelis learned the hard way to control.

In fact, the Israelis have offered a two-state solution on multiple occasions. Yasser Arafat rejected the most serious of those offers and responded with an intifada instead. The Palestinians want it all, “from the river to the sea,” and they want the Jews annihilated or ejected. When the Palestinians decide to settle for a two-state solution as the final resolution of this conflict, the Israelis will be there to sign off on it, and not because Warren threatened them into it. The Israelis are not going to commit suicide just because Warren demands it.

We can Now Officially Label Ilhan Omar an Anti-LGBT Bigot

The left has made it very clear that no hindrance of the LGBT community should occur in any capacity for any reason. Supporting anything that opposes the LGBT community makes you a homophobic, transphobic, other-phobic bigot who should be shamed into oblivion by the general public.

So Rep. Ilhan Omar should definitely qualify for being the target of the mob’s rage after she failed to condemn the Palestinian Authority (PA) for banning LGBT activists from the West Bank. Right?

….right?

The news from the Jersusalem Post dropped on Saturday that the PA was banning these activists after Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society planned to gather in Nablus at the end of the month. The PA plans to chase and arrest anyone responsible for these meetings:

Explaining the decision to ban the LGBTQ group from operating in PA-controlled areas, Luay Zreikat, spokesperson for the PA Police, said that such activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.”

Zreikat said that the group’s activities were completely “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus.”

He accused unnamed “dubious parties” of working to “create discord and harm civic peace in Palestinian society.”

The PA police will chase those behind the LGBTQ group and see to it that they are brought to trial once they are arrested, Zreikat warned. He further appealed to Palestinians to report to the police about any person connected to the group.

Robby Starbuck brought up the fact that the woke squad members Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the two Muslim members of Congress who have recently made a show of their hatred towards Israel (they call it “criticism” but tomato, tom-antisemitism) would definitely be woke enough to condemn the PA for such a homophobic act.

Spoiler alert: She doesn’t.

In fact, Omar immediately tried to turn the conversation back around toward Israel and it’s “violations.”

No one brought Israel up. That was just a knee-jerk reaction from Omar upon Palestine being criticized. Omar sent out one more tweet, making sure she still seemed woke by saying “we should condemn any effort to infringe upon” LGBT rights, but immediately put the attention back on Israel and it’s “occupation.”

Notice she doesn’t outright say “I condemn the Palestinian Authority for its mistreatment of LGBT peoples.” She doesn’t attempt to publicly convince the PA that what it’s doing is wrong. She doesn’t even tell the LGBT community that she stands with them against this level of state-enforced bigotry.

In the rule book crafted by the left, Omar’s silence is violence. She merely calls LGBT rights human rights, makes no other efforts to convince the PA to stand down or even reinforce her commitment to her woke values, and proceeds to turn the attention to Israel, who wasn’t even mentioned in the first place.

Btw, Israel allows LGBT members to exist within its borders, the PA doesn’t. Omar is siding with an anti-LGBT government.

By every definition of the left, Ilhan Omar is a homophobic bigot.

Ilhan Omar Claims Palestinian Opposition to Israel Is “Non-Violent”

Netroots Nation has been a goldmine of Democrats saying ridiculous things. This may qualify as the most disconnected from reality though.

This past weekend, Rep. Ilhan Omar was speaking on a panel and went on a several minute monologue on hypocrisy. Apparently, because our country celebrates the non-violent movements of our civil rights era but we aren’t celebrating Palestinians for their non-violent movement, we are all hypocrites. Amazing how it always comes back to how awful Americans are.

People can have varying views on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. It’s no secret that I find the Palestinian Authority and Hamas to be dumpster fire organizations that purposely choose suffering and terrorism over peace. Regardless, what Omar is saying here is objectively false no matter what your view of Israel is. There is no “non-violent” Palestinian movement to “liberate” (her words) them from Israel.

Here’s more non-violence from the Palestinian movement in a video put out just last month.

It should also be noted that liberate in this context clearly means to destroy Israel. How do I know that? Because the Gaza Strip is not occupied. Israel pulled out over a decade ago and it is governed by a terrorist group that was voted in by the residents there. Omar is never pressed on that fact, nor is Rashida Tlaib, as they continually push the “occupation” talking point that is simply false. The logical end game of their views on Israel is its downfall and the erection of yet another Muslim fundamentalist government in the Middle East.

How that’s not more controversial is beyond me, but I realize that inter-sectionalism essentially provides these Congresswomen with total immunity from hard questions.

I’ll also note that at the end of the video, Omar makes another nonsensical comparison that shows how illogical her thought processes are. Namely, that if you think healthcare is a human right, you must support Medicare for All or you are a hypocrite. I don’t think healthcare is a human right for obvious reasons, namely that you can’t make something a right to relies on the labor of others. But even pretending that’s not the cardinal issue, couldn’t someone believe healthcare is a human right but simply think Medicare for All is a terrible, completely unworkable plan that would collapse the system?

This is how Omar operates though. She sets up a false dichotomy and then calls you a bigot and/or hypocrite if you don’t agree with her. And because she’s from Somalia and is a Muslim, no one is allowed to even object without being accused of inciting violence against her. It’s a nice racket she’s got going.

“Palestinian Activist” Shares Video of Israeli Sniper Shooting a Palestinian, but There’s a Problem

Westlake Legal Group RTR3UZ00-620x418 “Palestinian Activist” Shares Video of Israeli Sniper Shooting a Palestinian, but There’s a Problem sniper Propaganda Palestinian Authority palestinian media bias Israel hoax Hamas Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Bad Acting

I ran across this video on Twitter and felt it was too good not to share. I have a feeling you’ll pick up what’s really happening here fairly quickly.

In the video we see a peaceful Palestinian protester holding a flag, minding his own business, and doing nothing threatening. Then out of nowhere, for seemingly no reason at all, a shot comes flying in and hits him in his upper thigh, supposedly from an Israeli sniper.

(UPDATE: TWEET/VIDEO WAS DELETED, Description added and second video is below)

The man dances around, spins and dives to the ground off camera. The fact that he leaves the frame is very convenient obviously. Then the video cuts to a scrum of Palestinians trying to care for him. We finally see him being carried away on a stretcher with a small amount of cloth wrapped around his leg as he triumphantly still holds his flag. This guy is so chill that he’s actually got his leg crossed and is putting pressure on the shot leg in the final scene. I guess he feels no pain?

There are some problems with the video though.

There’s no blood. There’s no entry wound. The shot supposedly goes into his thigh and, of course, he’s got black pants on. Israeli snipers also don’t aim for the thigh and they certainly don’t miss by that wide of a margin. They don’t use small caliber weapons where a guy is going to hop around like a bee just stung him after being hit. If he had really been shot by a high caliber rifle in the thigh like that, he would have collapsed immediately. But that wouldn’t have been as exciting for the cameras.

Clearly, as I’m sure 99% of you figured out in the first 15 seconds, the video is fake. It’s some of the worst acting I’ve ever witnessed. Just more mindless propaganda from the terrorist leadership the Palestinian’s elected over a decade ago.

Here’s another video from last year of a similar hoax, except in this one, someone does actually get shot.

This one was a little more well done. If you slow the video down, the boy is shot from behind, not from the Israeli border. There’s also a smokescreen blocking the Israelis’ view anyway. The sound of the shot indicates it was done at very close range, not from the distant border. Despite these obvious tells to anyone willing to think critically, that video is full of responses decrying the Israelis for supposedly shooting a 16-year-old boy. The Palestinian hatred for Israel is so strong that they shoot their children to spread propaganda. It’s hard to comprehend such disgusting behavior.

This is the kind of crap the Israelis have to put up with on a daily basis and far too many people believe this nonsense. The amount of misinformation which flows in support of the “Palestinian cause” is astonishing. Many times it’s repeated in mainstream media circles to further the idea that the Israelis are the oppressors with no questioning. In reality, Israel is doing everything they can to handle the situation in a humane way, even offering medical care to Palestinians until the Palestinian Authority decided they’d rather pay the families of dead terrorists instead.

I don’t envy the situation the Israelis are in. It must be absolutely infuriating to watch garbage like this be spread around the world, only to stir up more hatred for the Jewish people. The remedy to this would be for the media to finally start being honest about the situation. They won’t though. When’s the last time you saw a piece sympathetic to Israel on CNN or MSNBC? They refuse to share the truth because it conflicts with their political narrative. So we’ll keep playing this game for a long time yet.

It’s patently evil.

Ilhan Omar: 9/11 Was Just an Event Where “Some People Did Something,” Plays Victim at CAIR Fundraiser

Ilhan Omar really, really doesn’t like America and she continues to prove it every time she opens her mouth.

At a fundraiser for CAIR, a group with ties to terrorist groups, she described 9/11 in these terms.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.

Yes, the issue after 9/11 was the mythical loss of civil liberties of people like Ilhan Omar, not the 3,000 people who died.

She literally can’t even bring herself to actually describe what happened on 9/11. Instead she blows it off like someone robbed a gas station. “Some people did something” is all we get from her instead of an acknowledgement of the thousands who died, who killed them, and what ideology drove the act. Omar clearly doesn’t want to mention the relation of Islam to the terrorist attack. In fact, she refuses to even describe it as a terrorist attack.

Worse, she is actually using 9/11, not to mourn the fallen, but to self-servingly spin it as an event leading to her own supposed victimization. It’s a pretty disgusting handling of such a tragedy. It’s also incredibly selfish and self-absorbent. The major issue after 9/11 was not “Islamophobia” or any other made up crisis. In fact, Americans were incredibly restrained given what had just occurred. It was a time to look back on and be proud of how we responded and stood up for our neighbors.

Omar doesn’t see it that way though. She sees 9/11 as just tool to attack her political enemies. She shows no connection to the dead, nor compassion for their families. Omar only focuses on herself and her narrative. That’s not an accident. She knows exactly what she’s doing and her views are repugnant.

Think of all the times Donald Trump has been eviserated in the media for failing to properly speak about a solemn event. Now ask yourself why Omar is allowed to say this without a single mainstream media member pushing back.

Hilariously, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes thought her ridiculous speech was a good time to remind us that Omar is actually a voice for human rights or something.

These people are a joke.

Omar doesn’t speak out for human rights. She speaks out for regimes she likes and against those she doesn’t. When is the last time Omar criticized Iran? Or the Palestinian Authority? Or Qatar? Or Somalia? The answer is that she’s apparently never spoken out against those countries. She’s all about attacking the U.S. at every juncture though.

I know it’s taboo to question an elected official’s loyalties, but this woman’s actions leave rational people no other choice. She’s speaks in front of groups tied to Hamas, shows no sympathy for American suffering, and rails against the one democracy in the Middle East while seemingly finding no anti-American dictator ever worthy of scorn. Something is off here and it’s time to start asking the tough questions about Ilhan Omar.
