Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said Tuesday that he would annex much of the occupied West Bank if voters return him to power in the election next week, a change that could dramatically reshape the protracted Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

This is not the last international situation like this that we're going to be seeing between now and the 2020 elections. People like Netanyahu fear that Trump will not be there to back him up come 2021 and so he had to make his moves like this now, while Trump is still in the White House. He knows that no matter who is sitting in the White House some January 2021, if it's not Trump, he's not going to get all that mush support from the US as he is now.

We're back in the age where we take over other countries by force. This is what happens when we lose American leadership.

It doesn't matter. The status of a few square miles of land is not going to end or change a 3,000 year old conflict.

This is exactly why the US should quit supporting Israel.

Trump has done his level best to reward Putin for annexing Crimea and now he will do the same for Nuttyahoo.

Israel knows they will never have another opportunity to run roughshod over the Palestinians quite like they do with Trump running America.

I've been calling for some kind of an insult flag for over a year now.

It's annoying that the funny flag gets used as an insult. I only use it as it was intended.

This is a good thing for all involved ....

Once Israel annex all of the WestBank things will be rough, but then stabilize.

Actually the opposite...

Israel is much more diverse than the "Palestinians".

But will the residents of the annexed sections of the West Bank be given Israeli citizenship and thus the right to vote? If not, then what would have changed? After all, Arabs living in Israel proper are considered to be citizens and vote in local and national elections.

This is much like Trump saying he is going to build a Wall just to gin up the Base for an election.

It's a wonder NuttyYahoo didn't claim the Palestinians would pay for the annexation costs.

Good News, Everyone!

The USA will get a good chunk of the blame!

Oh wait... That's not good news at all...

This is Israel's best chance to carpet bomb the rest of the Palestinians into the dirt.

Must be why they bulldozed their towns.
Because they weren't ethnically cleansing the land, they were merely clearing the way for an even greater cultural diversity, one where you won't even need a house any more!

Sometimes I wonder about people like you, do you actively curry favor with the National Zionists, or do you just hate Muslims?

Right, like we could tell Israel, "No."
But Trump won't be doing that.

How is the further oppression and genocide "a good thing for all involved"?

Bombing homes throughout West Bank is "stability"?!

Plainly, Israeli are ghouls.

Boycott, Divest and Sanction.

Ethnically cleanse.

Right, there are Ethiopian Jews, Bedouin, Christians and several other native groups that the IDF use for target practice or the Israeli "government" annex into the Negev desert.
