THREE DAYS OF BUSINESS AS USUAL

As you are aware, President Trump has declared that the United States Embassy in Israel will move from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem.

And as you are, or should be, aware, Palestinian Arabs are furious about it.

From an article at aljazeera.com:

Protests broke out in the Gaza Strip in response to US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, as Palestinian leaders called for three days of rage against the move.

Hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets in Gaza City on Wednesday, carrying banners denouncing Trump, hours ahead of his declaration that will also see the US embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Palestinian Arabs protesting?  Marching in the streets?  Expressing outrage?  Denouncing an action in support of Israel?

Maybe I’m missing something, but I can’t find a distinction between what is being threatened, and what happens as a matter of course in Gaza and Judea/Samaria (aka the west bank) all the time.

One of the problems associated with Palestinian Arabs hating Israel and ongoingly trying to obliterate it is, that when some new real or imagined “outrage” occurs, what can they do?  Say they really hate Israel and really will try to obliterate it?

See, when you start at the end, there’s no outlet for additional reaction; there’s nothing that hasn’t already been done.

Maybe if Palestinian Arab leaders had ever displayed even one iota of serious interest in peaceful co-existence and an actual two-state solution (which poll after poll shows that Israelis support), this situation would not have occurred.

But there never has been such an interest, so this is what happened.

As the saying goes, they made their own bed….
