Why are the nations in an uproar?

Watch them now as they try to undo what’s been done in the finest hour (over the recent years) between the United States and Israel.

King David’s Psalm number two opens with the rhetorical question – “Why are the nations in an uproar?”

Well now we know. The European nations (nearly all of them) that conspired with Germany to wipe out the Jews barely 75 years ago, cannot accept the fact that Israel Lives. That’s one. Two, that Israel lives with Jerusalem as its capital, as endorsed by the United States through President Trump – it’s driving them crazy.

Delirium has set in from France, Germany (that’s nerve), Britain, Sweden and throughout the European Union.

They can’t forgive Trump for being so heroic and they will never forget him for his refusal to act the Quisling like Obama.

Watch them now as they try to undo what’s been done in the finest hour (over the recent years) between the United States and Israel.

Too bad and too late. America has spoken and it’s final. The ink has dried.

But listen to this witch (with an uppercase B): “The European Union has a clear and united position. We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital of both,” EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told a news conference.

Sure thing, Frederica. Good luck with that. The Palestinian Arabs can’t get it together between Hamas and the PA but you expect them to live in peace with Israel in a shared Jerusalem…and if the mean streets throughout Syria, Iraq and Yemen don’t tip you off as to what a shared Jerusalem would look like, you are beyond delusional. 

That klafta was not alone…not by a longshot. Seconds after Trump made the declaration, and proved himself to be a man in a place where there are no men, the uproars began. Abbas sent out his goons and they rioted…among them the amateurs and the well-paid professionals.

Hezbollah leader Nasrallah huffed: “Trump humiliated 1.5 billion Muslims.” 

Trump did no such thing. He only humiliated the terrorists you guys keep manufacturing and dispatching.

From afar and closer to home the dissenters argue that Trump should have kept it in mind that his Jerusalem Declaration would trigger the savages – and therefore for that reason alone he should have acted cowardly, as does the rest of the world on choosing appeasement when faced with Islamic terror. 

They don’t know Trump. They don’t know that Trump can handle the truth, as they cannot.

Submission, they say, is the only answer.

To appease the terrorists, to live in fear of them, to do nothing that might rile them up, that was the word from MSNBC ‘s Chris Matthews, a leading voice for the Left.

He did not call them savages but pretty much accidentally made that point when he blamed Trump for igniting further hatred among the Palestinian Arabs – who, apparently, need to be thanked on any given day when they do not riot and act like savages. (Which is seldom.)

Therefore, agreed Peggy Noonan, sitting on the same panel, we would all have been better off if only Trump had acted cravenly – as do all good Leftists.

Poor Peggy. I used to like her; used to think she was on the level. But Liberalism does something to people.

Quite frightful when they go to bed Conservative but wake up Liberal.

Amazingly (for me at least) that the same message came from someone on the Right. Vey oy vey. Conservative (Jewish-Libertarian?) pro-Israel pro-Trump radio host Michael Savage must have got up on the wrong side (the Left side) when I tuned into his show the day after. 

For his five to 10 million listeners, he denounced both Israel and Trump.

He called Trump’s move a “catastrophe.”

What a guy this Michael Savage! What a fraud!

He kept saying, “Why now?”

Let Hillel tell you why now, you turncoat ignoramus  -- “If not now, when?”
