City of The Great King

I came by to celebrate with my fellow Mainers about the wonderful news that we officially recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

It has been since about 1,000 BC, kind of weird to see any other city as the capital, but President Trump finally signed off on it, as promised.

Lots of plans, lots of things

Lots of plans, lots of things to do, and don't really want any progressives watching too closely...

Wait! Look over there! ;-)

Whether it actually happens or not, it sure moved the focus for a bit.

My initial reaction is that

My initial reaction is that The Donald is a warmongering asshole that lied his way into office, as Obomba did, and will continue the whole sale murder of everyone that doesn't bow and kowtow to the great empire.

I'm hoping that I'm wrong, because I voted for the bastard, maybe not unlike the Obama hope and change chumps, he has a better plan, then just go along with the MSM Beltway and continue to murder thousands and millions of people. I know Obama did not, he just went along to get along, as does our senators and reps.

Any way, hope springs eternal, and I hope my printed/borrowed tax dollars will not kill people on their own land, thousands of miles from Maine.

As we age Mike we get a

As we age Mike we get a little smarter, but some of these folks live to destroy stuff. It has nothing to do with Jerusalem. Mohamed never set foot in Israel. Hatred of Israel is just plain required. Ishmael is still fighting Isaac. Esau is still fighting Jacob. Brother against brother. The God of the Bible said that Jerusalem is the apple of His eye. That is all the reason needed for people who hate Him to want to occupy and desecrate that city.

I am aware that General Eisenhower warned us about the military industrial complex and they blow stuff up to sell us new stuff. If you look at history though, its mankind that perpetrates death and destruction with rocks and sticks if nothing better is available. Countries invade neighboring countries to take slaves and loot possessions, nothing new. Look at the world empires in history, Babylon, Assyria, Persia, Greece, Rome, England, France, just to name some, they lived to invade peaceful, weaker nations.

Whether Mr. Trump or Mr. Rogers is president the only thing I can promise you is that there will be wars.

This particular recognition of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel is just an excuse for more violence. The last intifada was in 2000 to 2005. Years of rioting and destruction all because one man, Ariel Sharon, visited the temple mount site one time. Is that really a solid reason to murder Israeli civilians, but this is what these Jordanians called Palestinians live for.

This law was passed in 1995 by a bipartisan effort and signed by Bill Clinton, 22 years ago. Mr. Trump is just following the law they passed. Prior American presidents thought they could dodge the conflict by cowering to and bribing these outlaws but in 22 years they continue refuse to let Israel survive. A country maybe the size of Rhode Island yet the Arab synonym for everything evil. If they insist on war, and they do, what choices are there?

“I know not with what weapons

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” Mr MC squared

That is what I fear and we get closer every day. What will be the spark?

Mike, it is a complicated mixture of many things that will be the catalyst for the next Major war.

In a word, the main provocation is PEACE. When the peace treaty is signed and everyone is living safely, Katie bar the door.

Eze 38:10 "Thus says the Lord GOD: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme.

It would be impossible to lay it all out but Ezekiel 36 (roughly) speaks of the return of Israel, you realize they did not exist as a nation from 70 AD until 1948, and were reborn in a day. Jerusalem, that tiny piece of real estate is a cup of trembling to nations. The Arabs attacked in 1948, 1967, and 1973, and will again. They have no tolerance for Israel, none.

I don't have a clue where this North Korea thing fits in but in a day in the future, as best as scholars have interpreted up to now, the kings of the east will be sending an army of 200 million soldiers across the Euphrates river, guess to where, to Israel.

small world, I mean its a small world indeed.

Of course it could become a

Of course it could become a capitol for the Palestinians also. But they do not want that. Or their leaders do not want that.
That would put them out of the protest / rebellion business.
The real problem is no one wants them . Given their behavior who can blame leaders of the area.

If obama had declared

If obama had declared Jerusalem the capitol of Israel, the progressives would be saying that it was the next best thing to the second coming of Christ.....I think that progressive objectivity may be lower than whale shit.....

You are right there, the hypocrisy in the west and world is numbing, all the Palestinians get is lip service and some welfare for their imprisonment by the Israelis.

At first, I was pissed that Trump did this, but after some thought it doesn't amount to anything. If the Israelis finally decided to kill ever Palestinian in the Gaza Strip it Might make the evening news.

If anything ever first

If anything ever first pleases you, don't worry. There is no doubt that in mere moments it will turn into a spasm of disgust.
