Trump Bucks UN On Israel

Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

The UN sought to pass a resolution on Israel, and Trump is against it. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Egypt today pulled a resolution in the United Nations calling on Israel to "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem" — a measure President-elect Donald Trump said should be rejected.

While Barack Obama's administration had yet to comment on the matter, Trump weighed in via social media before the resolution, before the Security Council, was tabled.

"As the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations," Trump said in a statement on Facebook. "This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis."

    I stand With Palestine. Only thing i agree with you Liberals on.

    • Posted by Looky Here, at Reply

      I mean the thing is, peace is only possible if all sides are being fair and
      just. The fact of the matter is, Israel has the upper hand and they’ve not
      only stabbed Palestinians in the stomach… they’ve been twisting that
      knife around in there for years. That’s not to say that Hamas isn’t
      deplorable and that Palestinians haven’t bombed southern Israel. It’s just
      gross to see that all these European, Yemeni, Iraqi, etc. refugees come to
      an inhabited area fleeing persecution and then go right ahead and create a
      similar refugee crisis.

      The UN is just a forum for nations to come together and reach agreements.
      Even though the UN has no enforcement power, and never will have, it is
      still meaningful to have the ability to generate international concensus on
      certain issues.

    The issue is that the Palestinians want Jerusalem and so do the Israelis.

    • Posted by Omar Albarghouty, at Reply

      Still, Israel occupied half of Palestine, we can’t do anything about it.
      Endless wars and religious wars will never stop unless Pakistan and Israel
      nuke each other and both of them disappear from the face of the Earth. This
      is probably not gonna happen because Pakis and Israelis wanna live on.
      Thus, Palestinians have to accept what has happened during the last 100
      years just like the Native Americans of the US and Canada accepted the fact
      that the Europeans colonized and took all of their continent. Palestinians
      at least still have so many big cities and lands in Palestine and Israel,
      unlike what happened to the Native Americans, we are still MUCH BETTER off
      than the Native Americans. Many Palestinians did accept the fact and don’t
      want endless wars. A two-state solution with maybe a divided Jerusalem is
      better than wars for the next century or two until one race, or religion,
      is totally wiped out.

      Omar Albarghouty you’re not like the native americans. your are exactly
      like the americans today who stole the land, claims its there, and try to
      earse out history of the native inhabits. you only squat on my land because
      of the islamic conquest.

    • Posted by Omar Albarghouty, at Reply

      Actually the nomadic Israelites from Sinai occupied Jerusalem and many
      other cities from Ancient Canaan, and they established Ancient Israel then
      Ancient Judah was established then both of them got united. Then these two
      occupying nations occupied Ancient Philistine City States after that
      civilization lasted for 400 to 500 years in 5 major ex Canaanite cities.

    • Posted by Omar Albarghouty, at Reply

      Palestinians are exactly like the Native Americans. Palestinians are the
      descendants of Ancient Canaan that was occupied by the Israelites 3100
      years ago then occupied again in 1948 AD. But no worries, for 4000 years,
      Palestinians have always lived on their lands from the Egyptian occupation
      until the Zionist Israeli Ashkenazi occupation by European converts into
      Judaism then Semitic Jewish immigrants joined the occupying forces.
      Palestinians will never abandon their lands, just like the Native Americans
      and Native Canadians. Lol! There are even 1.6 million Palestinians in
      Israel! Israelis just can’t get rid of Palestinians 😂😂😂😂😂🇵🇸

    The Prime Minister of New Zealand, John Key, is Jewish and a descendant of
    Holocaust survivors, is he anti-Jewish also?

    • Posted by NorEasterReaper, at Reply

      Empty Wheel There are Orthodox and Zionistic Jews. Orthodox Jews I have
      spoken with, and who have been on the news, are against Israeli (read:
      Zionist) aggression (and some of them are against the entire state) because
      they are against the bloodshed. That’s the most important part but they are
      also against it because it is their belief that the Messiah will return
      them to the promised land. There was no Messiah who lead the Zionists to
      Israel. At least no Zionists claim a Messiah has or had ever come.

      The Zionists just wanted a nation-state from which to exercise power. They
      didn’t even go straight to Israel, they contemplated a small list of
      possible locations for their nation-state, including the Congo (which is
      hilarious).

      So tl:dr being against Zionists is not being against all Jews anymore than
      being against Westboro Baptist Church makes anyone “against all
      Christians,” or being against Jihadist Muslims makes anyone “against all
      Muslims.” Every religion has it’s extremists. The Jews are currently lucky
      in that their extremists are back by the US government.

      Arabs in Israel can vote, they can hold political office, they work in
      professions alongside other Israelis, they can own businesses, they can be
      judges, lawyers, doctors, ambassadors… Does this sound like apartheid to
      you? The accusation is absurd, and I think everyone that has been to Israel
      can agree on that.

      The (so-called) Palestinians in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) They are not
      citizens of Israel, so of course they don’t have the same rights as
      Israelis. These Palestinians are not governed by Israel, they are governed
      by the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria.

      illegally ?

    this was posted as tongue in cheek and was more a comment upon Ben’s long

      rid of your exagerated ego and your constant blundering of foreign

      and are a citizen of Canada USA Australia etc it’s actually ILLEGAL to
      record your birth country as “Israel, Jerusalem” on your passport
      application. No country on the planet recognizes this city as belonging to
      Israel. You can call Palestinians as squatters but that’s exactly how the
      nation of the world see Israelis. The Brits gave Israel a portion of the
      land mass but as the old adage says “give him an inch and they’ll take a
      yard” – the Brits know they fucked up.

      that that land has seceded from the USA. The fate of lands ruled by the

      first, Isreal has its own nukes

      second, USA depends upon Saudi arabia (the holy land of islam) to supply it
      with oil/power

      third, isreal has a influential lobby in western countries even compared to
      the saudi lobby with is much stronger financially

      Other countries support isreal because Saudi and USA supported isreal, and
      any other European countries have done little to no significant backing, or
      possess any power that can change the status quo.

      LOL american shackles ? western countries enjoy the security of USA free of
      cost with NATO, just look at their military budget of EU countries in the
      last 2 decades.They rely heavenly on American umbrella to elevate them from
      the pain of spending money in defense.

      “Israel has a lot of rich lands which any country in the region would love
      to get their hands on”
      Isreal has crap compared to every other country in the neighbor. All the
      Sunni arab nations during the fight in Syria have heavily relied on Israeli
      backing for their forces, and so they are going to use it to counter Shia.

      “conflict with Israel would be a pretty popular move in case their
      popularity ratings dip too low”
      ME is not a democracy, their wealth is gained from petrodollars and not
      economic/industrial power. They either live like kings when the key powers
      favor them to or either Die like in Yemen/Iraq/Libya.

      Common people in middle-east are treated like ants, their existence never
      bothers any power.
      It is like if you see a line of ants on the footpath, what do you do ? you
      either walk over them trying not to Crush them. but if the same ant has
      made a colony in your house you finish them mercilessly. Because your
