Sometimes, doing the right thing will have unintended consequences, and it is our duty as Americans to persevere in the face of that opposition.
Such is the case with President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, making a de facto declaration regarding America’s belief that the holy city is the rightful capital of Israel.
Given the long and tumultuous history of Israel and Palestine, and the never-ending violent conflict over their current borders, it came as no surprise that Trump’s decision regarding the embassy would be fraught with peril from the non-Jewish population in the area. ISIS even got in on the act, declaring their intent to target American interests in protest of the move.
Now, the infamous Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, (PLO), has issued their own warning directed at the United States and their interests abroad.
“According to Sawabteh, the decision to target American sites by the group’s military wing was made ‘the moment after the retard Trump’s speech recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.’
“Over the weekend, during a declared military exercise conducted by the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the so-called military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, spokesperson Abu Jamal said that ‘all the American targets across all of historic Palestine from Rafah (on the Egyptian border) to Rosh HaNikra (on the border with Lebanon) are legitimate targets and they are within our range’ because of Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“In a follow-up interview with Breitbart Jerusalem, Sawabteh noted, ‘The Popular Front won’t respond by shaking hands and it will take all steps necessary in order to fight off the American decision.’
“’We will use all the tools at our disposal to force the U.S. to take back its decision, a decision that proves that the American administration is nothing more than a tool in the hands of the Zionist entity, a tool that serves the interests of the Zionist entity.’
“’The entire Palestinian people will fight against the American Zionist plots and we won’t let these conspiracies pass,’ he added.”
Again, we are facing retribution for a decision that should have come years ago, but was hampered by the capitulatory subservience of former President Barack Hussein Obama, who went out of his way to appease the enemies of Israel in a bizarre, almost New Age style pattern of pacifism.
