Still Got That Old-Time “Separate But Equal” Spirit

Segregation, ethnic cleansing, and double standards
Staying true to their separate-but-equal roots, the Democrat party has once again decided to impose different standards and different laws on different people because some people, apparently, matter a whole lot more than others.
Fresh off the heels of blocking a vote on a bill recognizing the Armenian genocide so as to not offend our pseudo-ally, Turkey, with reality or having to take responsibility for their action, the Obama administration condemned Israel for undertaking a project to build 1600 new homes in a previously undisputed part of Jerusalem, a city which is already de facto divided due to pressure from hostile nations. This, after Israel agreed to halt the building of “settlements” in Judea and Samaria for ten months just to appease them.
Not only is Israel the only nation which cannot gain and maintain territory through wars of self-defense or whose borders are perpetually negotiable, but they apparently do not deserve the means to defend themselves, either. The administration which arms and trains the PA’s military, a terror organization for all intents and purposes, diverted a shipment of bunker busters from Israel just this week.
On Thursday, Fatah dedicated a monument to a mass murderer without so much as a dirty look from the Obama administration. Can you guess who Joe Biden condemned the very next day for “trying to undermine the peace process?” Never mind that Fatah refuses to meet without ridiculous preconditions, having already been offered 90% of all disputed territory and rejected it. They’re totally dedicated to peace.
First, Israel must cancel the approval of the housing units in [suddenly disputed] Ramat Shlomo.
Second, Israel must prohibit all construction for Jews in Jerusalem neighborhoods built since 1967.
Third, Israel must make a gesture to the Palestinians to show them we want peace. The US suggests releasing hundreds of Palestinian terrorists from Israeli prisons.
Fourth, Israel must agree to negotiate all substantive issues, including the partition of Jerusalem (including the Jewish neighborhoods constructed since 1967 that are now home to more than a half million Israelis) and the immigration of millions of hostile foreign Arabs to Israel under the rubric of the so-called “right of return,” in the course of indirect, Obama administration-mediated negotiations with the Palestinians. To date, Israel has maintained that substantive discussions can only be conducted in direct negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian officials.
His plan is essentially to divide Jerusalem in two, one side Judenrein and the other flooded with genocidal jihadis. Just to insult Israel’s sovereignty and demonstrate his unfathomable narcissism, he’s decided that he of all people must oversee any discussion between the only two parties involved because only he can decide what happens to disputed territory, international law be damned (when it’s inconvenient). Plus, Rabat Shlomo is now on the table simply because the administration cannot admit that they were ignorant and wrong.
This is the same man who ten months ago had no idea about the 1922 League of Nations mandate to reclaim Israel, who has no foreign policy experience, and who chose Joe Biden as his running mate because, hey, if you’re going to remake other people’s countries, it’s best to rely on someone who has literally been wrong about every single major foreign policy issue of the last 30 years. He may never be factually correct, but he does get results.
My advice to Israel is to just walk away. Take a lesson from the Serbs, on whom Joe Biden successfully imposed his “peace” in Kosovo. You stand to gain nothing from dealing with this administration. Nothing. In fact, should you repeatedly tell them to go to Hell, you might even earn their respect. Don’t let them hold you to different or higher standards than anyone else. Build a monument to King David right on top of al-Aqsa tomorrow and raise Hell anytime anyone from any genocidal terror organization so much as looks at it funny. It’s your land. You fought for it and you won it fairly and squarely.
