As was to be expected, violence has erupted in the Palestinian held territories after President Trump’s declaration yesterday that the US government would as form now recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and would soon be moving the US embassy there.

The demonstrators could be seen burning posters of President Trump and of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as American and Israeli flags.

Israeli police are using tear gas and rubber bullets to keep the protesters at bay, who have gathered by the hundreds already.

The youngsters are responding to Mr Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas, who said in a speech in Gaza City: "We should call for and we should work on launching an intifada in the face of the Zionist enemy."

"We have given instructions to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger."

"violence has erupted in the Palestinian held territories .." great let them burn and loot their own people and areas.

Btw: mimics the RIOTS we see here in the USA. Just an excuse to steal, and burn.

The guy above me is retarded. Israel has been stealing land from Palestine since its inception. Naturally they're going to be pissed. I hold no warm sentiments towards any person outside of European descent, but the Zionist Jews are the greatrst evil on this planet and need to be dealt with.

The Jews are responsible for white genocide.

Note to Anonymous No. 13528.

I see you cannot rebut the statement therefore as your only option you chose to attack the messenger and not the statement.

Some facts to chew on:

* Palestine did not exist prior to Nov 1988. (wiki)

* Every brokered peace agreement to date has been broken by Palestine.

* Palestine that pays dead terrorist families for attacking Israel civilians.

* Palestine that openly supports and funds terrorist organizations like PLO and HAMAS, ISIS and etc.

* Has yet to date to stop even 1 of 1000's of rockets launched from family Palestine homes and streets.

*Regarding Land. Israel was re-founded in 1948. its borders were set by the UN then. They were attacked by the Arab world day 1 of recognition.

* Their new expanded borders are the results of the Unified Arab world in 1968 attacking it again and having its ass handed to them.

* Israel later even gave back some of the land in several FAILED US Liberal brokered peace agreements.

What white genocide? Are you referring to David Lane? That American white supremacist leader and multiple convicted felon theory?
