The Israeli Defense Forces have reportedly been placed on high alert ahead the expected announcement of the Trump administration to to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

According to reports, the decision is set to be announced on Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump told regional leaders his decision by phone sparking a criticism from around the globe.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Jerusalem’s status is a “red line” and Ankara could respond with cutting ties with Israel.

According to experts, the US decision will fuel further the tensions in the region. Israeli forces are already preparing for a new wave of violence and protests.

    Fuck Trump, Screw Israhell and death to Benjamin Netanyahu

    • You can call me Al

      and for the first time in my life, I am going to say, go Turkey.

      • Ivanus59

        Turkey at least likes to pretend like it wants to help the Palestinians. They have cut ties with Israel before and then they would mend them again as if nothing happened, they cooperate with Israel on economic, cultural and military levels. :P Turkey is all about sensationalism, like a giant theater featuring a sometimes comical and sometimes sad drama. I remember them comparing the struggle of Palestinians in Palestine to the “struggle of Crimean Tatars against Russia” lol.

          So tru bro.The aid ship bounded to Gaza a few years back comes to mind.The bulk of the massacred civilians on the ship were Turks.

        • FlorianGeyer

          It seems that Israel is creating an environment where violent unrest will be the inevitable result so that the zionists can wave their hands in the air and shriek ‘ We are victims again will this anti-semitism ever end ‘ :)

          • RichardD

            And use it to “justify” more ethnic cleansing and land theft.

  • TiredOfBsToo

    Ankara cutting ties to Israel is fine, but what’s really needed is to cut ties with Washington and toss NATO off of Turkish soil. If he’s at all serious, that’s what is needed as it’s the only thing the Empire might understand.

    • Muriel Kuri

      Yes – Turkey should kick US out of Incirlik air base and cut ties. With the mentality running the government, I doubt that even this would get through to them.

      • Starlight

        Turkey, like Egypt and KSA and Israel, is 100% in the West’s sphere of influence. How can people here not know this. Get a clue, people. Look at the map of the Old Roman Empire. Those lands are the Deep State’s Empire of today.

        • Muriel Kuri

          Erdogan is hard headed and I don’t fully trust him, but he’s gone through a real mind-change, I think, after the attempted coup when Putin personally saved his life. I think he is now trying to make the best decisions he can for hmself and his country. It’s a win-win scenerio for him to tie his rope to the rise of the Eurasian Economic Union and OBOR. The Turkish stream, increased tourism, increased trade, prosperity and peace – what’s not to like? I think eventually we’ll see him do a full reversal away from the US and NATO.

    • Starlight

      Turkey is 100% is the West’s sphere of influence. Google the fall of the turkish empire and britain’s role to properly understand. The Young Turks that oversaw Turkey’s conversion to a SECULAR state (and were responsible for the Armenian genocide- a genocide that targeted REAL christains, not the christian ZIONISTS like the catholics) were jewish, just like those responsible for the take-over of russia during the Revolution.

      Recent events have allowed the Deep State to use the double-agent play – so very foolish people think Turkey is on Russia’s side. Actually after murdering Russian pilots, Turkey got Russia to help it with the ‘kurdish problem’- AND got to gain access to Russian s-400 missiles. Turkey has played Putin like the winner of a village idiot competition.

      The ONLY reason Turkey is making a noise is to give the impression all major muslim nations are up-in-arms about this issue. To make it seem ‘reasonable’ Iran is in the same boat- so the coming massive false-flag can be blamed on Iranians.

      Everything is illusion and misdirection. I’m so sad seeing so many on our side fall for it once again.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        Now that Trump had declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, we’ll truly find out how strongly Erdogan feels towards the Empire.

  • hvaiallverden

    Yeah, how ehh…… manly, whine and shouting, but in the end of the day, nothing will happen, because nobody cares about the Palestinians, nobody, and this is an freak show to score some pathertic points, and to have said “something” and whatever a Turk drools in their corner I dont place anything in it other than hearing some weird sound bytes, nothing else.

    Yeehaa, nothing is better than watching an entire world collapse into their own sniveling drivel, yeah, even the Norwegian inbreed Khazars mumbled something, witch I know is nonsense anyway, because saying anything, about ISISrael is simply just an display of Jew hate and Anti-semetism, the reason for all this late weeks hard pimping Poor joooos, yeah, everything, for weeks, and now you morons know why.
    And remember RT is a ZioNazi mouth, and is a of course, following the Russian official narrative witch is bending over and grab their own ankles so the the latest Russian president NothingbutYahoho can tell you what you need to know, because its controlled by the Tribe.
    Thats why even they pimped Poor Joojos, remember.
    I told you what and why, now it should be obvious, RT is an ISISrael friend.
    Along with their lies and propaganda against Yemenis, tsk tsk, tsk.

    So, to me, this is nothing else than an freak show, because nothing will happened anyway.

    peace

    Jewish depravities have told Team Trump that this move will provide perfect cover for the massive false-flag Trump will use to declare war on Iran.

    Remember 9/11, when Operation Northwoods was brushed off by Tony Blair, and used as the basis of his false flag to justify all the evil that followed? But 9/11 had to be blamed on someone- had to seemingly come from an existent issue. Blair blamed Bin Laden- and later had MI6 phoney up a laughable video ‘discovered’ in some house in Afghanistan, when a laughably fake ‘Bin Laden’ admits his culpability.

    By carrying out this crime against Humanity, in co-ordination with world jewry, Team Trump makes any ‘event’ that follows seem obviously related to this crime. Anything now can be blamed on Iran- for the jewish blood insult against all muslims (and all christians) can be used as a primae facia motivation.

    Putin again could stop this in an instant by going to the UN and declaring America’s action a crime against the planet- UN law is clear on the issue. A bully acts til the moment the punch lands on his nose.

    But Putin kneels at the feet of the jews, as we know. He has declared Russia’s eternal support of the zionist atrocities that rule in Israel. And while he’ll whine about the American move, as he whines about the olympic ban, he’ll do NOTHING about either.

    Trump’s actions will lead to the death of thousands in the weeks to come- but it is intended to lead to the death of MILLIONS in the months to come. Recall how you are told small events led to WW1- untrue of course since that bankers’ war had been in the planning forever. Well this is how the Great Game is played. Sheeple given a ‘small event’ they can believe was to blame for all that follows.

    America has PROMISED war on Iran, and anyone with two functioning brain cells can work out what happens when the Deep State needs to WIN against Iran. Trolls who PRETEND to be on our side priase Putin for every weakness, especially his refusal to invade Ukraine, and oversee the PEACEFUL partition of that blighted nation. The same trolls tell you that the West is ‘weak’ and cannot defeat Iran. The same trolls tell you nuclear weapons don’t really exists- are a ‘conspiracy theory’- and even if they do won’t possibly be used on Iran. The same trolls tell you sanctions on Russia don’t matter. The same trolls tell you that Russia can never act as America acts- for if Russia does it will cause war. The same trolls tell you Putin’s servile behaviour to the zionists is just fine and dandy. The same trolls tell you it is “meaningless” that Russia sells s-400 systems to Turkey and Saudi Arabia, but won’t even sell s-300 systems to Syria.

    The action by Trump and the events to follow in the aftermath are 9/11 all over again. Russia’s ‘victory’ in Syria is about to turn into ashes in Putin’s mouth. When the Deep State falters, it goes LARGE. It relies on Russia staying SMALL, for this bully fears only the punch on the nose- a punch Putin is never, ever going to throw.

    • RichardD

      You wrote this yesterday and never replied to my question:

      “Putin can go to the UN tomorrow, declare Syria a former military ally of Russia, and ORDER American forces out of Syria immediately.”

      And when the US says no, which is what would happen, then what?

      • Muriel Kuri

        The UN is weak before the US and I’m sure Putin knows this. Why waste time and effort on an action here which will do nothing? Until the collapse of the dollar as the reserve currency, the US remains the bully on the block.

  • juan carlos ayala

    bueno trump es un pelele manejado lo que diga es nada, pero cual es el afán de buscar una guerra suicida por parte de israel?

  • zman

    Trump strikes again. Is there nothing this moron can’t fuck up? I hope he’s getting a good retirement plan out of this, he’s going to need it. Maybe this will cause an ‘unbalanced’ Muslim to assassinate him…which will of course mean that we would have to attack Iran.

    There are provisions at the UN for overriding a US veto in support of Israel at the UNSC. And it looks to me like the votes are there to do exactly that:

    “United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution 377 A,[1] the “Uniting for Peace” resolution, states that in any cases where the Security Council, because of a lack of unanimity amongst its five permanent members, fails to act as required to maintain international peace and security, the General Assembly shall consider the matter immediately and may issue any recommendations it deems necessary in order to restore international peace and security. …

    In procedural votes, the permanent members of the Security Council—the so-called “P5″—do not have the ability to block the adoption of draft resolutions, so unlike substantive matters, such resolutions can be adopted without their consent.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_General_Assembly_Resolution_377

    “1 December 2017: The United Nations voted Thursday to adopt the draft resolution “Jerusalem” (document A/72/L.11), entailing “that any actions by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem were illegal and therefore null and void,” the UN’s website reported.

    An overwhelming 151 states voted in favor of adopting the resolution, while six states – Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, United States of America – voted against the resolution and nine others abstained. The abstainers were Australia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, South Sudan, Togo, according to the UN’s website.”

    http://www.egypttoday.com/Article/1/34974/UN-votes-against-Israeli-jurisdiction-over-Jerusalem-U-S-objects

    The US Jerusalem Embassy Act calls for moving the embassy and recognizing Jerusalem as the undivided capitol of Israel. It was never signed into law by the President and passed by default when he failed to veto it because it had a veto proof majority. It was determined by the US Justice Department to be unconstitutional. The embassy act calls for withholding 50% of State Department funds if the provisions of the act aren’t met:

    “The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995[1] is a public law of the United States passed by the 104th Congress on October 23, 1995. It was passed for the purposes of initiating and funding the relocation of the Embassy of the United States in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, no later than May 31, 1999, and attempted to withhold 50 percent of the funds appropriated to the State Department specifically for “Acquisition and Maintenance of Buildings Abroad” as allocated in fiscal year 1999 until the United States Embassy in Jerusalem had officially opened. …

    The act also called for Jerusalem to remain an undivided city and for it to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel. Israel’s declared capital is Jerusalem, but this is not internationally recognized, pending final status talks in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The United States has withheld recognition of the city as Israel’s capital. The proposed law was adopted by the Senate (93–5),[3] and the House (374–37) …

    The Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel concluded that the provisions of the Embassy Relocation Act inveighed exclusive presidential authorities in the field of foreign affairs and are unconstitutional.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem_Embassy_Act

    My view is that by not signing the waiver, Trump has initiated a process that could be used to revoke the embassy act. Similar with what he did by not signing the Iran compliance statement. How this plays out will be determined by what the US does from here now that the default provisions of the act have been set in motion by the President’s refusal to sign the waiver by the dead line a few days ago.

  • RichardD

    The resolutions, procedures and votes are clearly there to admit Palestine to the UN as a full member over US and Israeli objections. If the US moves it’s embassy and recognizes Jerusalem as the undivided capitol of Israel using the provisions of the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act. Then standing up a Palestinian state with full UN membership would be a responsible thing to do.

    • Muriel Kuri

      Yes, as Palestinian rights are acknowledged by most of the world anyway. Look at the response coming in with the proclamation from Trump of the Jerusalem capitol. All the world is against this – I think the Zionists are in for a real hard time, as this is a very hot issue with everyone. Maybe than, they’ll see the error of their ways? American embassies all over the world will be attacked too, so this is only the start of a very rough ride from a terrible decision by Trump.

      • RichardD

        The UNSC is meeting tomorrow on the issue, what happens there and how it effects street protests will have an effect on how the embassy move and capitol recognition plays out. The Russians recognized West Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel recently, in compliance with applicable UN resolutions. But haven’t moved their embassy. The US action is based in the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, which is in violation of multiple UN resolutions and international law. And supports the Israeli ethnic cleansing and land grab project. That’s why Trump’s actions are so inflammatory and divisive.

        • Muriel Kuri

          And as if the world is not in bad enough shape already, this will only inflame the middle east more.

  • Rodger

    The expected assault not coming is a marvelous weapon of war. Gives these guys PTSD just from standing there looking at nothing.
