Israel backs Kurds and Trump Tweets new threats against Turkey

More string pulling after Bolton visited Israel.

A while back ago this made headlines across many news organizations and media outlets around the world. There of course is some irony and double standards as Israel says it supports a Kurdish State all while not recognizing a Palestinians state



https://www.cnn.com/cnn/2017/10/02/m...ort/index.html

Fast forward to today and you have Trump threatening to devastate Turkey economically if Turkey attacks Kurds.. Now who would possibly want this..?

https://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Tr...k-Kurds-577269

Meanwhile we have financial pressure rising on falling Turkish Lirah. Who would have the capability to do this..? Currencies against the USD while the Dollars is weakening don’t fall for no reason unless someone is behind this.

5.53 and falling as of now

The Arab world supports a Palestinian state and not a Kurdish state. That is the double standard.

Israel has mentioned many times that it would support a two state solution, it is the Palestinians that have never agreed to it. The Palestinians have been offered a state multiple times.

The Kurds have been loyal allies of the USA and her allies in the region since before the first Gulf War to present time. They're tough fighters and fight the enemy of the free world. Other Presidents have pretty much abandoned them when it was convenient to do so, President Trump will honor the commitment to stand will a honorable ally of this country. Support the Kurds and to hell with Palestinians.

Quite wrong, the mods should not allow members to silence and intimidate others for posting current political media events and then allow other members to make personal attacks against other members when they have biased double standards as to what threads are to their political likings and to which ones are not

If 3 Trump threads or 3 Obama threads pop up do you object? If 3 anti-Russia,3 anti-Iran, 3 anti-China, 3 anti-American, 3 anti-Mexican or 3 anti-Syria threads pop up do you object?

You need to start a thread about it so we can discuss that one there and see how many will jump in, how many will turn a blind eye and how many will be happy to see that thread pop up Last but not least would like to see how many will label it as either Islamophobic or racist thread

Ummmm, he was going to abandon them until all the backlash of his pulling out of Syria hit. NOW he wants to protect them. What an idiot.......

Have you ever met a Holocaust survivor? Seen the tattoo? If so, you wouldn't be so anti-israeli.

From the big This you seem to quite like because it imust be to your political and religious likings. while the other one you did not like which is fine but don’t intimidate other members here over political news events when they are not to your likings and then show support for ones to your likings as it shows bigotry,bias,racism and hypocrisy. We should all be free post freely here without attacking other members here regardless of differences in political and religious views

Have you ever met any Palestinians or middle eastern people that lost loved ones due to war crimes committed by others? If you had you would know that Two wrongs don’t make a right.

You didn't answer my question. Do you think the jews should move somewhere else? Do you understand the event that led to the creation of Israel? The Jews had a far worse time of it in Europe than the Palesinians have it now. And with different leadership, the palestinians could have had their own homeland by now.

You have a point about there being 2 sides, but you also seem to view this only from they Palestinian point of view. Do you not think the Jewish people should have a homeland?

I don't need to start a new one, you already did, this one stating Israel backing Kurds. Well what happened today was Irsael backing Kurds. You hit that nail right on the head. As to how the left views it, I really don't care.

I always simply remind anti-Zionist that they are on the same side of the people who tried to exterminate the Jewish population during WWII. It seems to bring them up short. Hopefully he understands that.

I've read it and understand it very well. Which, is generally why I don't make vast generalizations such as your last couple of statements.

As I said earlier, one can be critical and not like how multiple Israeli governments have treated the Palestinians and others. Or how they acquired the land for the modern nation of Israel. This does not make them Nazis nor condone their actions/on the same side of them.

You guys are really pissed off today and especially nasty for some reason. Apparently a tough Monday AM for a lot of people today.

“The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: ‘The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’”

I don't have a version. What "version" are you alluding to? Do you know something I don't?

I have read about it in numerous places and met a survivor of Bergen-Belsen 2 years ago.

So, I didn't see him posting pro Hamas articles etc.

And plenty of Jewish folks feel the same way about Muslims etc.
