US vetoes UN resolution that would have required Trump to rescind recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital


More winning. I’m not tired of winning yet, however. Now it’s time to get out of the United Nations altogether, and send it packing from the United States.

“The Latest: US vetoes UN resolution on Jerusalem,” Associated Press, December 18, 2017:

The United States has vetoed a U.N. resolution that would have required President Donald Trump to rescind his declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Egyptian-sponsored Security Council resolution was approved by the 14 other council members, a reflection of the depth of global opposition to Trump’s action.

Arab nations knew in advance that the United States was certain to veto the resolution, but they sought the vote to demonstrate that countries everywhere and even many U.S. allies such as Britain, France and Japan are against Trump’s action.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley called the resolution “an insult” that won’t be forgotten…

Hizballah top dog Nasrallah: “Death to America! Death to Israel!,” Trump’s move beginning of the end for Israel


Nasrallah mixed his incitement to jihad violence with some conspiracy paranoia, claiming that “America created ISIS and the takfiri groups.” “Takfir” is the act of declaring some other group non-Muslim, such that they can lawfully be killed. Sunni jihad groups such as the Islamic State and al-Qaeda are often called takfiris by other Muslims — those whom they declare non-Muslim. In any case, the Islamic leaders of all sects and perspectives are doing their best to stir up Muslim rage over Trump’s refusal to bow to their intimidation, figuring that maybe if they try to intimidate him even more, he will eventually cave in. Intimidation is the only tool in their box.

“Hizbullah Sec.-Gen. Nasrallah Leads Masses in ‘Death to America’ Chants; U.S. Jerusalem Declaration ‘the Beginning of the End’ of Israel,” MEMRI, December 11, 2017:

Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said that Trump’s declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would “spell the beginning of the end for Israel, Allah willing.” In a mass rally held in Beirut on December 11, the masses repeated his cries of “Death to America!” “Death to Israel!” and “Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!” The rally was broadcast by the Lebanese Al-Quds TV channel.

Hassan Nasrallah: It is time that everybody knows that America is not the sponsor of peace in Palestine and the region. America created Israel and supports it. America is the sponsor of terrorism, of occupation, of Judaization, of deportation, of burning, of destruction, and of civil strife. America created ISIS and the takfiri groups. America created ISIS and the takfiri groups. The only position that the Islamic nation can take vis-à-vis America can be summed up in the following words: Death to America!

Crowd: Death to America!

Death to America!

Death to America!

Death to America!

[…]

Hassan Nasrallah: Together let us turn this stupid and oppressive American decision into the beginning of the end of this plundering entity for all eternity. Let our slogan, our path, and our agenda be: Death to Israel!

Crowd: Death to Israel!

Death to Israel!

Death to Israel!

Death to Israel!

Death to Israel!

Death to Israel!

[…]

Hassan Nasrallah: Our path must continue to be focused on Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the eternal capital, which we shall never relinquish. This is the Jerusalem about which the Palestinian people say – and we Lebanese and all the Arab and Islamic peoples should repeat this along with the Palestinian people: Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!

Crowd: Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!

Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!

Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!

Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!

Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem!

[…]

Hassan Nasrallah: Trump’s decision will spell the beginning of the end for Israel, Allah willing.

Crowd: We respond to your call, oh Nasrallah.

We respond to your call, oh Nasrallah.

We respond to your call, oh Nasrallah.

Trump colludes with Putin to help Russia foil major jihad mass murder plot in St. Petersburg


Collusion!!!! Impeach Drumpf!!!! Aaaauuughhh!!!

“Putin Calls Trump To Thank Him For CIA Tip That Thwarted St. Petersburg Bombings,” by Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller, December 17, 2017:

Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Donald Trump on Sunday to thank him for a CIA tip that prevented a plot to bomb St. Petersburg.

The CIA provided enough information for Russian authorities to nab a ring of suspectsplanning a deadly attack against the Kazan Cathedral and numerous other locations in St. Petersburg, according to the Kremlin, The Associated Press reports.

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) announced Friday that it had arrested seven suspect Islamic extremists involved in the bomb plot earlier in December.

Putin asked Trump to thank the CIA on his behalf and also added that Russian intelligence will in turn pass over any tips it might come across regarding potential threats against the United States.

“Russian security services, should they have information about possible terrorist threats to the United States and its citizens, will swiftly and unconditionally share it with the US colleagues via partner channels,” the Kremlin’s press service stated….

Italian city removes Christmas tree from town hall to avoid offending Muslims


Europe’s new masters.

“Italy: Christmas tree forbidden not to hurt sensibility of non-Christians,” European Post, December 16, 2017:

The traditional Christmas tree in the town hall of the Italian city of Bolzano (Bozen), in Trentino Alto Adige has been removed not to hurt the sensibility of non-Christian believers, the association “Veterani dello Sport” denounced as reported by Il Giornale.

The “Association of Veterans” organised an event in the public room of the Town Hall to award the “Athlete of the year” prize. They decorated the room with traditional Christmas symbols and, given the Christmas time, once they finished their event they left a Christmas tree decoration. The problem arrived the day after, when they received a call from an office of the Town Hall asking to remove the Christmas tree because there would have been a meeting of a Muslim association in the same room and ‘the tree could hurt their sensibility,’ the president of the Association Alberto Ferrini said.
