US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended the decision of the Trump administration to recognise the Golan Heights as Israeli territory during a press conference in Washington DC on Tuesday.

“We are simply recognising facts on the ground and the reality and doing the right thing. I hope those nations [who oppose the decision] will join us to understand how important that is, how right that is,” said Pompeo.

Pompeo also announced that “We’ll continue to refuse and provide assistance to foreign NGOs who perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning. Now, as a result of my decision today, we are also making clear that we will refuse to provide assistance to foreign NGOs that give financial support to other foreign groups in the global abortion industry.”

Now that Syria is in a weakened state from the war and the same for Iraq , Jordan and Egypt had their teeth pulled it is a good time to take without fear of a united powerful retaliation . Any attempt to resist will be swept aside and in fact I think they wish to provoke such an attack so they can demolish any opposition whilst they are in a weakened state.

There are still 4-5 true blue motherfuckers to go, the sooner them being taking out, the better. Since they’re into thinking like in the middle-ages, maybe should we…

Who cares about this so-called opposition? They’re freaking terrorism-funding states. They should have been dealt with for decades…

Doesn’t matter where you are from but if some outside group come in and chase you out of your home and take your land as theirs are you going to get down and kiss their feet or will you use whatever means you have to fight back. When Britain ruled Palestine and handed it over they suffered from terrorism never seen before from you know who so a little of the stove calling the kettle black never goes astray.
