Embassy To Jerusalem- Igniting The Lost Wounds

A day spent in collecting corpses of lost Palestinians, many of whom were children, was not really worth the so called victory the United States is proud of achieving yesterday, at least not n my eyes.

It was a doomed decision from its genesis- Moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, virtually getting oneself entangled in the mess which is the 70 year long land grabbing game that Israel has been playing and cunningly winning by dodging questions by the international media and just spitting over the regulations given by the international communities.

One of the many controversial promises made by US president Donald J. Trump was to go for this move despite its consequences never looked very promising in making peace. To gain the support from the Christian white right wing politicians and businesses and to hit the legacy of diplomacy and peace talks of Obama hard, he made several decisions in his presidency so far that diminished the little image he had of attempting to make the middle-east stable.

How can one of the greatest nations in the world, go so wrong all of a sudden?

To hand the nuclear codes to a man who doesn’t think of any of consequences of the part he plays in nurturing these dangers!

Starting with publicly stating his intentions of backing out of the Paris Climate Agreement, declining to stay in the deal made with Iran after years of negotiations, he now goes on to add another fire to the already tensed relations between two nations who’s conflicts has the potential of causing devastating results.

Most would blame Palestine- A nation that was stripped of its right to exist, its people displaced left in employment and cluttered over what little space Israel gave them. Palestinian Christians unable to visit their holy shrines and Palestinian Jews and Muslims treated the same.

Not to mention, whatever homes they build, are nosedived right back to its foundations by its enemy. Missiles don’t notice age or religion but shatter bones with equal fervency.

This has been the condition for quite some time for Palestine and most likely will be for long.

The welcoming embrace Palestine received from the Pope when the Roman catholic church made saints out of two Palestinian nuns was a sign that not all Christian authorities are people of hatred and division.

But still, the day when over 50 were massacred, none were available to help. While Ivanka Trump smiled and spoke words of luxurious volume, the hollow-hardheartedness of the entire administration was seen by the world. Many of the world leaders stand opposed to this misjudged move made by Trump but none will be able to stop many more of the people from both sides that are going to pay with their lives, because of the greed of one nationalistic xenophobic government and an ignoramus human being who’s actively promoting slaughter of defenseless people in the name of helping his allies.

We cannot distinguish ‘progressives’ from conservatives

For a while I have been keenly keeping an eye on the recent political turmoil engulfing the United States. A significant period of my political identity has been strongly linked with the Liberal left my faith on their beliefs and ideals but the 2016 November elections shifted my views and sparked a strong sense of skepticism and detailed analysis of my closest beliefs.

Since Donald J Trump’s victory in a bid for the White House, the liberals in the United States have been highly vocal and critical about their unfair defeat. According to them, Trump didn’t win the popular vote but was still somehow chosen at the 45th President of the US instead of Democratic nominee, Hillary R Clinton.

For Democrats and liberals, Trump is the personification of the mind-sets of the racist and discriminatory white supremacists of the US. Many have criticised him of spewing venomous and inflammatory words against immigrants, Muslims and transgendered people. And while the persistent recklessness of his will made him get out of Iran deal and move the embassy of Israel to Jerusalem sparking a new row of violent and fearful atmosphere in the controversial region of the middle east.

But how fair have been the liberal side of the spectrum?

Recently, the big news about Trump’s recent rant is trending towards his “animals” comment. In an interview with the Sheriff from the Fresno county, California, Trump was asked a question about MS-13 gang members (A band of people renowned for their heinous torture methods of killing and raping people) where he referred to these people as ‘animals’.

Shortly after that, many well-known people who identify themselves as liberals jumped on Twitter and other social media platforms to condemn this man’s remarks without understanding the context of it.

Many News portals such as the New York Times, Vox, CBS news, etc made their headlines as ‘Trump calls immigrants animals’ when the context was clearly different. Many even came in the defence of MS-13 saying that even they are humans and shouldn’t be treated as anything less than humans.

Trump’s remarks in the past might have surely been the catalyst for this but people jumping to conclusions so quickly without wanting to see the bigger picture, in order to create more paranoia and animosity between people of the Political and racial spectrum, is something democrats and liberals shouldn’t have done.

How insanely racially biased one has to be in order to come to the defence of rapists and murderers.

The liberals pride themselves on being educated and well-informed and then this happens that makes them equally ignorant as the ones that went on and supported Donald Trump.

It would be almost impossible for me to deny Trump’s racist remarks and his fan club of white supremacists, but for once, Anyone can defend him and rightly so and what’s worse; the liberal news networks gave Trump the winning card this time.

It almost makes you think whether or not, any in the political spectrum really cares for the rights of the people or are just really excellent in giving heart felt speeches about freedom and justice for all people.
