David Friedman has now started his Israeli ‘diplomacy’ by fundamentally threatening Israel and Israelis to ‘avoid confrontation’ with the most irresponsible, recklessly incompetent and dangerous President in America’s history. Israel has long stood down the combined and supported Arab nations but damn well better ‘avoid confrontation’ with Donald Trump?
Trump’s given the fellow tinhorn Mahmoud Abbas unearned air time and false credibility as but another thoughtless attention getting political distraction and media show. This, while Abbas has responded by saying it will be ‘impossible’ to not have Putin directly involved in whatever regional ‘peace process’ Abbas has more recently envisioned.
Putin. The world knows all too well the ‘peace process’ that the war criminal Putin has created for Syria; for Aleppo…for Syrians.
How about now…are you impressed now?
Trump is reported to be seeking ‘self-determination.’ Great line…meaningless but a great line nonetheless. Think Trump could provide a political definition for let alone a functional application of ‘self-determination?’
The only thing Trump ‘determines’ – remarkably and increasingly poorly – is what he thinks will get him maximum attention from moment to moment; the most camera time day to day; the ‘best’ political distractions and/or how to get back at whoever was the last person to personally offend his disconnected and very fragile ego.
Trump is deeply uniformed, only self-adoring and well beyond Unfit. His notion of business ‘negotiations’ has long been far more aligned with an organized crime model than real, smart, hard nosed give and take business.
Trump makes and violates contracts at will; runs financial scams like Trump U and has long skimmed off debt which he transfers to business partners. Trump is also alleged to have trafficked fashion models. It’s on the record. Know about that…?
Now, he – his family – have unabashedly and grossly been monetizing the Office of the President to advertise and profit on direct behalf of Trump, Inc. The ‘man of the people’ who spends millions of taxpayer and local dollars on golf trips; fundamentally sells ‘Presidential’ memberships to Mar-a-Lago which he advertises on the State Dept website and continues to regularly cost the city of NY tens of millions of dollars to keep his ‘wife’ in Trump Tower in her preference to stay away from him.
You adoring ‘Trumpists;’ realize you’ve been scammed yet? Realize your agenda; the reasons you voted for this – person – are about the last things he’s retained or ever even thinks about but to titillate? Trump doesn’t give a damn about you or about Israel.
Trump is no friend of Israel but must respond to the Christian Zionist; Messianic lobbies whose agendas are far more directly dangerous to Israel; to Jews than even that of Trump and his core Nationalist/Christian Supremacist American supporters.
Realize Trump’s not going to ‘save you’ from political reality or support an assault on the Territories. Trump won’t and can’t save Israel’s government from global opinion or legitimate opprobrium to include that from the Diaspora. More, Trump doesn’t care, doesn’t understand and won’t save Israel’s own remarkably unstable and uniquely dangerous to Israel hard Right leaders
