Messianic Zionism, of the kind that claims all the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River as God-given real estate, supplanted secular Zionism of the kind that believes in a state of laws.
An opportunistic right-wing politician named Benjamin Netanyahu, who had compared Rabin to Chamberlain, rose to power. He may supplant David Ben-Gurion as Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, but his legacy looks paltry beside the founding father of Israel.
No democracy is immune to running an undemocratic system on part of the land it controls. Across the Green Line, millions of inhabitants are noncitizens. This is the combustible “one-state reality” of which Secretary of State John Kerry spoke this month.
The non-citizens are Israel’s colonized Palestinians, oppression and humiliation are hewn into the topography of the West Bank. Israel, through the settlement movement, has undermined its Zionist founders’ commitment to a democratic state of laws.
This is a bit of an unpopular opinion, but thank Allah for Donald Trump, as a Muslim American, it’s been very easy to feel like a foreigner in the country I was born in, constantly being told that Muslim values don’t equal American values
Or that I must be a “moderate” because I haven’t committed a murder, or, more recently, that a strategy for combating terrorism is barring Muslims from entering our country, you begin to wonder yourself if it’s possible to simultaneously be both Muslim and American, but in Islam, if you ask for strength, God will deliver you obstacles to overcome and grow stronger, Muslims have been praying for our plight to be heard, and God gave us Donald Trump
America needed a Donald Trump. Without him, Islam would continue to only be discussed in the context of violence and terrorism.
We have done a tremendous disservice, not only to the Middle East, we’ve done a tremendous disservice to humanity, the people that have been killed, the people that have been wiped away, and for what? It’s not like we had victory!
Well if I really had a choice I'd rather be president because I can't sing
