President Trump’s latest diplomatic shuffle has taken the world by storm this week, but not everyone is cheering.
The President’s bold move was to set forth a plan to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; an incredibly decisive piece of governmental flexing that bolsters the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This, of course, comes in a region besieged by Palestinian opposition to a Jewish state anywhere within the currently defined borders of Israel let alone within its most holy city.
In other words: Trump has a whole lot of the middle east throwing shade his way these days.
Surprisingly, however, some of that shade may be coming from the EU – at least according to the President of the Czech Republic.
“Czech President Milos Zeman on Saturday accused EU states of being ‘cowards’ in their response to his US counterpart Donald Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“’The European Union, cowards, are doing all they can so a pro-Palestinian terrorist movement can have supremacy over a pro-Israeli movement,’ said Zeman, presenting himself as a defender of Israel.
“The 73-year-old Zeman, targeting a second term from January and who had Friday said he was happy at Trump’s controversial move, made Saturday’s comment before delegates attending the congress of the far right Freedom and Direct Democracy party, which opposes immigration and the EU.
“Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday in a move that outraged Palestinian leaders, but which was hailed as historic by Israel.“Zeman said he had himself spoken in favour of Prague moving the Czech embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv on a visit four years ago — a proposal which met with a reserved political response in his homeland.”
The powerful move by Trump has also been lauded by American conservatives who are completely over the constant comparisons between Trump and infamous anti-semite Adolf Hitler, who the liberal left loves to invoke whenever someone disagrees with them politically.
The European Union has been fracturing in recent years as the globalist agenda of the organization comes fully into light. Outside of the Czech Republic, a number of nations have bucked back against the EU’s policies, including Britain, who voted to leave the organization, and a number of eastern European nations who have refused to take in the EU-mandated migrant quotas over fear of an encroachment of radical Islam.
