There are no leakers! Also, we are going to punish all the leakers!

This whole thing is so grotesque. Moving the embassy like this was of course going to result in the kind of slaughter that's happened; they knew it, and they did it and welcomed it specifically just because it was a hearty "horsefeathers you" to everyone and because they wanted it to end like this.

And they picked an evangelical horsefeathers to say the opening prayer at the ceremony.....a pastor who has openly stated that Jews are going to hell and Islam is a false religion. Is the entire White House staffed by reddit trolls?

Unfortunately, trolling is the closest thing to coherent policy within the administration.

I'm not surprised. I knew this would happen and it horsefeathering sucks. I think I'm the only Muslim on this forum. It's really hard to rationalize why so many Americans support Israel so strongly. I get the whole stupid Evangelical reasoning (which is terrible) but there are a significant amount of liberals that also have strong feelings for the state of Israel.

I have so many Palestinian friends and the situation over there is terrible. The IDF knows they can do whatever they want right now. horsefeathers Trump and his son-in-law and his daughter and everyone else who pushed for this.

Didn’t read the article.... but It’s hard to feel bad for the guy who built a business around cheap, dependable, labor the gov helped give him, who you would assume was a guy who “didn’t need the government in his life” and now realizes he can’t run a business because he voted for a guy who said he’d take that labor away.

I used to give blind support to Isreal, until a libertarian friend of mine who used to work in the Mid East shared his thoughts and experiences with me. He also gave me some history of the region since WW1. Which it turns out includes a lot of bad decisions forced on the area by Great Britain and the US.

I am still not anti-Isreal, just much more understanding of the plight of the muslim people there.
