US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP has admitted that the US only keeps its troops in the Middle East to protect Israel.
In an interview with the Washington Post yesterday, Trump explained that he would not withdraw US troops from the region because of the need to support Israel, despite the fact that other US concerns such as oil were no longer sufficient reason to remain. Trump told the Post:
Now, are we going to stay in that part of the world [the Middle East]? One reason to is Israel. Oil is becoming less and less of a reason because we’re producing more oil now than we’ve ever produced. So, you know, all of a sudden it gets to a point where you don’t have to stay there.
Trump’s comments have been interpreted as referring specifically to Saudi Arabia — one of the US’ main oil providers and increasingly an Israeli ally — with the Times of Israel suggesting the president “appear[s] to envision a world where the US would be less beholden to Saudi Arabia”.
This triangular relationship between the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia has been forefront in Trump’s decision-making in recent weeks. Last week, Trump suggested that Israel would face severe difficulties without the presence of Saudi Arabia, saying: “The fact is that Saudi Arabia is tremendously helpful in the Middle East, if we didn’t have Saudi Arabia we wouldn’t have a big base [and] Israel would be in big trouble”. Also last week, Trump thanked Saudi Arabia for lowering oil prices, stressing the US would remain a “steadfast partner” of the kingdom and not allow the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to harm US-Saudi relations or weaken Israel.
It is no secret that the US provides extensive military support to Israel. In October, the largest ever US military aid package to Israel — worth $38 billion to be delivered over a period of ten years — entered into force. US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert explained that: “Under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding [MOU], the United States will set funding for Israel at levels of $3.3 billion in Foreign Military Financing and $500 million for cooperative programmes for missile defence over each of the next ten years”.
The implementation of the MOU was intended to reflect “the enduring and unshakable commitment of the President [Trump], this Administration, and the American people to Israel’s security,” Nauert added.
The US also regularly raises money to support the Israeli army. In the past two months the Friends of the Israel Defence Force (FIDF) held two galas to raise money for the army, raising a total of $92 million across the two evenings. The first event — held in October in New York — raised $32 million and was attended by over 1,000 US business people and philanthropists, as well as key figures from the Israeli establishment. In November, a second FIDF gala held in Beverly Hills, California raised $60 million and was attended by a host of celebrities, including Ashton Kutcher, Pharrell Williams, Gerard Butler and Katharine McPhee.

The attack by two Palestinians on a synagogue in Jerusalem in which four orthodox Jews were killed, is not a random act but rather the sad consequence of Zionist terrorism committed against the Palestinian people over a period of decades.
As tragic as the recent killings are—and we here at DavidDuke.com condemn all bloodshed, no matter who commits them—the reality is that they were the work of people driven to extremism and violence by the behavior of Jewish Supremacists.
The huge coverage of the attack in Jerusalem has made worldwide front pages news—but the Jewish Supremacist-controlled mass media will censor out the reasons why such a terrible act has occurred.
In addition, they will not mention the almost daily acts of terrorism committed by the Zionists against the Palestinians.
The history of violence in Palestine is as old as the Zionist movement. Prior to the decision by the World Zionist Congress in 1897, Jews and Palestinians lived alongside each other in Palestine in relative peace.
The Palestinians, although subjects of the Ottoman Empire, regarded themselves as a nation in their own right, and had no particular argument with the small Jewish and Christian communities in their land.
However, the launch of the Zionist movement, which was a new manifestation of Jewish Supremacism, changed this relationship. Suddenly, the full weight of international Jewish organizations was brought to bear in the Jewish colonization of Palestine.
From the late 1890s onwards, increasing numbers of Jews were brought to Palestine, legally and illegally, by the Zionist movement. Each new wave of Jewish settlers resulted in the displacement of the Palestinian population—and when the latter protested, the Zionists turned to naked terrorism to drive their enemies away.
After Palestine came under British rule at the end of the First World War, the Zionists increased their violence against the Palestinians to push ahead with their plan to seize Palestine.
The British, sympathetic to Zionism and to the plight of the Palestinians, attempted to strike a balance—but the unreasonableness and violence of the Jewish Supremacists forced their hand, and soon a state of war existed between the Zionists and the British mandate authority in Palestine.
During this period—from 1920 to 1948—Zionist terrorists carried out attacks through groups such as the Irgun, the Lehi (also known as the Stern gang), the Haganah and the Palmach. Their victims were the British authorities and Palestinians alike, all with the aim of driving both those groups out of Palestine.
For example, the “Nebi Musa” riots broke out in 1920 after gangs of Zionists attacked Muslims during the Muslim celebration of that name in Jerusalem (as reported in The Times of April 8, 1920).
In 1929, the so-called “Palestine Riots,” also known as the “Western Wall Uprising,” or the “1929 Massacres” took place, when clashes broke out after Zionists started erecting segregated prayer facilities at the “Western Wall” in Jerusalem to separate themselves from the Palestinians. These constructions violated the until-then observed rule that not Muslims, Christians or Jews would build any structure in Jerusalem which interfered with any group’s access to the holy sites in the city.
Hundreds of people on both sides were killed, and many more injured—most of the latter wounds being inflicted by the British authorities attempting to restore order.
By the mid 1930s, it was clear to the Palestinian leadership that unless something drastic was done, the rate of Jewish colonization of Palestine would inevitably—and soon—result in the extinction of the Palestinian people.
After suffering decades of Zionist terror, some Palestinians started fighting back in 1936—and this signaled a dramatic upturn in the violence.
In the 11 years leading up to the creation of the state of Israel in Palestine in 1948, Zionist extremists who lived in the territory of Palestine under the British Mandate used terrorism as a military strategy to accelerate the establishment of an independent Jewish state.
Their violence was directed against the British authorities who governed Palestine and against the Palestinian indigenous population throughout Palestine.
Over 5,000 Palestinians and dozens of British military personnel in the Zio-terror attacks of that time.
While Zionist terrorist groups assassinated UN personnel, murdered British officers and attacked British military headquarters to overthrow the Mandate, they terrorized Palestinian inhabitants in order to provoke mass flight, displacement and migration.
The Irgun was one of the main Jewish terrorist organizations, and their attacks included:
• Al-Quds massacre, December 1937: Member of the Irgun hurled a hand grenade at the marketplace near al-Quds mosque, killing and injuring dozens.
• Haifa massacre, March 1938: Members of the Irgun and Lehi gang throw grenades at Haifa market, killing 18, and injuring 38.
• Haifa massacre, July 1938: The Irgun explodes booby trapped vehicles in Haifa market, killing 21 and injuring 52.
• Balad El-Sheik Village Attack, June 1939: This Palestinian village was attacked by members of the Haganah, the Main Jewish Defense. Five villagers were kidnapped and murdered.
• King David Hotel Bombing, July 1946: Led by Menachem Begin, the Irgun planned and carried out the bombing of the King David Hotel, the British military headquarters in Jerusalem in July 1946 in order to destroy documents proving the terrorist campaigns of Zionist groups. The attack killed 28 Britons, 17 Jews, 41 Palestinians and 5 others for a total of 91 victims.
• Attack on the British Officers’ Club at Goldschmidt House, March 1947: This Jerusalem attack killed 17 British military and intelligence officers.
• In July 1947, the Irgun kidnapped, tortured, murdered and mutilated the bodies of two British army Intelligence Corps soldiers, Sergeant Clifford Martin and Sergeant Mervyn Paice.
• Bombing of the Jerusalem Railway Station, October 1947: The Irgun bombed the Jerusalem Railway Station in addition to mining roads and attacking army vehicles.
During World War II, some Zionist terrorist groups called a temporary halt in their terror campaign against the British, but continued it against the Palestinians.
Some of the Zionist terrorist groups—such as Lehi—even continued attacking the British, and famously offered, in writing, to fight on Germany’s side as late as 1941 if the Hitler government would agree to recognize a Jewish state in Palestine (the offer was turned down by the National Socialist rulers of Germany).
The Lehi committed the following acts of terrorism:
• Assassination of Lord Moyne, November 1944: Assassinated in Cairo, Egypt, Lord Moyne was the highest ranking British government representative in the Middle East at the time. The Lehi targeted him because of his support for a Middle Eastern Arab Federation.
• Cairo-Haifa Train Bombings, Early 1948: A few months before the 1948 Israeli-Arab war, the Cairo-Haifa train was bombed several times, attacks claimed by or attributed to the Lehi. An attack in February killed 28 British soldiers, and wounded 35 more. An attack in March killed 40 civilians, and wounded 60 more.
• Deir Yassin Massacre, April 1948: Commandos of Lehi and Irgun headed by Menachim Begin attacked Deir Yassin, a village of 700 Palestinians, ultimately killing between 100 and 120 villagers.5 The Master Mind behind the Deir Yassin massacre, Begin justified the attack in his book The Revolt: “Arabs throughout the country, induced to believe wild tales of ‘Irgun butchery, ’were seized with limitless panic and started to flee for their lives. This mass flight soon developed into a maddened, uncontrollable stampede.”
• Assassination of Count Folke Bernadotte, September, 1948: Count Bernadotte, a UN Peace mediator who had come to the Middle East 1948 to modify the Palestine partition plan in an effort to resolve Arab-Jewish disputes, was also assassinated by the group.
• On 12 December, Irgun placed a car bomb opposite the Damascus Gate, killing 20 people.
• On 4 January 1948, the Lehi detonated a lorry bomb in Jaffa’s Town Hall, killing 15 Arabs and injuring 80.
• During the night between January 5 and 6, 1948, the Haganah bombed the Semiramis Hotel in Jerusalem, killing 24 people.
• On January 7, 1948, Irgun members in a stolen police van rolled a barrel bomb into a large group of civilians who were waiting for a bus by the Jaffa Gate, killing around 16.
• On February 17, 1948, an Irgun bomb went off in the Ramla market, killing 7 residents and injuring 45.
• On February 28, 1948, the Palmah organized a bombing attack against a garage at Haifa, killing 30 people.
After the establishment of the state of Israel, these terrorists were incorporated into the Jewish state. Menachem Begin transformed the Irgun into a political party called Herut. The Lehi became the Moledet party which today continues to openly advocate the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza, territories now occupied by Israel.
Terrorist leaders Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir later became Prime Ministers of Israel.
The record of the Zionist state since then, with regard to its treatment of the Palestinian people is well known. Repeated acts of terrorism, violence, ethnic cleansing, racist discrimination and expulsions have marked the decades since 1948, with the latest “Operation Protective Edge” which killed thousands of Palestinian civilians, women and children alike.
The best summary one can have for the continued loss of Palestinian land due to Zionist terrorism can however been seen in this map, which shows Palestinian territory in green, marked from 1947 to the present day.
The attitude of Jewish Surpemacists to their enemies in the Middle East is not limited to Palestine.
Who can forget former Secretary of State and Jewish Supremacist Madeleine Albright who said that 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was “worth it”…..she went on to win the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama.
Only when the full history of violence and bloodshed—as committed by the Zionists against the Palestinians—is understood, can the recent actions of a handful of extremists in Jerusalem be explained. The sad deaths in Jerusalem are the consequences of decades of Zionist terrorism coming home to roost.
Chief Rabbi to Non-Jews in Israel: Live as Our Servants or be Expelled
While Jews force mass immigration on White countries and criminalize those who oppose it, in Israel immigration is severely restricted, non-Jews are third-class citizens who must serve Jews or be deported at will. The Chief Rabbi’s frankness has even alarmed the ADL.
JEWISH LAW bans non-Jews from living in the Land of Israel unless they adhere to the seven Noahide laws, Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef said. (ILLUSTRATION: Soldiers dance with Torah scrolls during the celebrations of Simhat Torah in the Eshkol region in the Negev in September 2010.)
“According to Jewish law, it’s forbidden for a non-Jew to live in the Land of Israel — unless he has accepted the seven Noahide laws,” Yosef said in his latest weekly sermon over the weekend.
Yosef’s comments appear to have been aimed specifically at Palestinians, since he said one of the Noahide laws is not to commit suicide, a reference to suicide bombers and terrorists.
The Noahide laws, seven specific, basic laws delineated by the Talmud for non-Jews to keep, do not specifically mention suicide, but do prohibit murder.
“If the non-Jew is unwilling to accept these laws, then we can send him to Saudi Arabia,” the rabbi said. “When there will be full, true redemption, we will do this.”
Yosef said explicitly that a non-Jew who does abide by the Noahide laws is permitted to live in the Land of Israel, saying that such people will be assistants and helpers for the Jewish people.
The Anti-Defamation League issued a strong denunciation of Yosef’s comments, and called on him to retract them.
“The statements of Chief Rabbi Yosef are unspeakable and expose, yet again, the chief rabbi’s ignorance and lack of tolerance to anyone who is different from him,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO and national director, and Carole Nuriel, ADL Israel acting director.
“The exclusion and demeaning of a large group of people in Israel, who are not Jewish, and the call for their expulsion is unacceptable coming from anyone and particularly the chief rabbi — a spiritual leader who must set an example of morality, and who has influence on society.”
Earlier this month, Yosef was strongly criticized when he said that religious law mandates the killing of an armed terrorist who is trying to commit a violent attack, and shouldn’t be afraid of being tried in court over such an action.
The rabbi stressed, however, that a murderous attacker who no longer has a weapon should not be killed, but rather put in prison for the rest of his life.
Following his comments, several MKs and NGOs said he should leave such matters to the heads of the security services and political decision makers.
Yosef is the latest in a list of rabbis who in recent months have advocated killing terrorists while they are murdering innocent people, on the basis of a precept in Jewish law that permits killing a person seeking to kill you.
“If a terrorist is advancing with a knife, it’s a mitzva [commandment] to kill him,” said Yosef.
“One shouldn’t be afraid that someone will petition the High Court of Justice or some [army] chief of staff will come and say something different. There is no need to be afraid. ‘He who comes to kill you, get up and kill him,’” continued Yosef, citing the rabbinic dictum of self-defense.
“This also deters them. When a terrorist knows that if he comes with a knife he won’t return alive, it deters him, so therefore it’s a mitzva to kill him.”
In mentioning the chief of staff, Yosef was referring to recent comments by Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, who said in February the military should not operate according to this precept, adding that “a soldier should not empty a magazine of ammunition into a girl holding scissors.”
This was a reference to a controversial incident in November when two Palestinian teenage female attackers stabbed a 70-year-old Arab man (who they thought was Jewish) in the head with scissors and wounded another in Jerusalem before security officers shot them. One of the terrorists was killed and the other critically wounded.
