In the wake of President Trump’s extraordinary, historic decision to official recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, we have been stunned – STUNNED, we tell you – at the rampant, low-expectational Islamophobia we’ve seen from liberal leaders around the world.
Goodness, these are the same people who tell you off if you suggest that maybe our airport security would be better off focused on Arab men with long beards and head-scarves than little old white ladies! But they’ve apparently taken leave of all of that now. When it comes down to a choice between defending Islam and trashing the Trump administration (and Israel), well, that’s really no choice at all. These liberals would turn on their own children if it meant winning the Anti-Trump Award for December.
Let’s see, what do we have here. Oh, the Pope! Of course. “I appeal strongly for all to respect the city’s status quo, in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions,” said the pontiff.
And Merkel! “We do not support President Trump,” she said through a spokesman.
Saudi Arabia, saying that Trump’s decision brought them “great sorrow” and would likely lead to “dangerous consequences.”
We could go on and on.
All of them – and the majority of liberal Democrats and mainstream media pundits here at home – were reacting to comments made by Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas and other pro-Palestine Muslims, who have threatened violence in the wake of the announcement. Abbas reportedly “warned of the dangerous consequences such a decision would have to the peace process and to the peace, security, and stability of the region and of the world.”
First of all, don’t make us laugh with talk of peace, security, and stability in the Middle East.
Second, are we all just forgetting that Islam is a religion of peace? Why would there be a sudden outbreak of violence just because President Trump is recognizing the obvious reality – that Jerusalem is, was, and always will be the capital of Israel? It doesn’t actually change anything. It doesn’t suddenly force Palestinians into Jordan. It doesn’t send Israeli tanks crashing through the streets of the West Bank. It’s just a proclamation. Nothing more. Why would a speech like this incite violence from the Muslim people, who have never been known to do something as irrational and outrageous as attack innocent people without justifiable cause?
Of course, we jest. These world leaders know just as well as anyone that the thinly-disguised terrorist groups that serve as the Palestinian “government” are a powderkeg just waiting to explode, and they know damn well that Muslims in the region are itching for any reason to go wild and start knifing, bombing, and shooting Jews and Americans. That’s not “Islamophobia,” that’s a fact. And less than 24 hours after Trump’s announcement, the violence is already beginning to bubble over on the outskirts of Israel. Imagine that.
