Here We Go Again

Reader comment on item: Trump's Mideast 'Deal of the Century' May Be a Raw One for Israel

Submitted by Barry Black (United States), Jan 26, 2019 at 09:56

Trump's relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem was simple minded, but a long promise kept with an unspoken proviso. It was a piece of bait to the Palestinian leadership that they had something big on the table waiting for them, but they didn't bite, which is usually the case----they wait for the outcry and let world opinion turns against Israel.

Now we see the resurgence of antisemitism, in the USA, reach the level of a cottage industry as several members of the US Congress are known to harbor antisemitic views. Already, in the USA, the recent Women's March was headed by such people. One thing about "antisemitism" is that it feeds on itself as more people become comfortable with such prejudice. I was surprised that the Jewish women, who were also leaders in the Women's March, easily accept their role and the excuses of those with such a bias! Maybe they should just pack their bags and get on the train. Hard to believe that Louis Farrakhan now has supporters in Congress. Remember when Hitler was starting out he was supported by Jews who believe his stance was just political rhetoric and we know how that turned out!!
