Left happy at Trump saying Israel will pay a price

US President Donald Trump’s statement that Israel will pay a “high price” in its negotiations with the Palestinians because it won something “very big” with America’s relocation of its embassy to Jerusalembrought joy Wednesday to the Israeli Left, which praised him.

Addressing a rally in West Virginia, Trump said that the Palestinians would soon “get something very good” in return for the May embassy move “because it’s their turn next.”

Zionist Union MK Amir Peretz said that “when dealing with a president who thinks like a businessman it was clear it would only be a matter of time until he asked for something in return” for the embassy move.

“No one can claim that this is a hostile president with demands that are not legitimate,” Peretz said in a reference to statements made about Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama. “Netanyahu cannot deny the need to make courageous decisions. Solving the dispute and dividing the land into two states for two peoples is not a deal with the US but an Israeli interest that will allow our state to remain both Jewish and democratic.”

His Zionist Union colleague, MK Eitan Cabel, said it was “time for the Right to wake up from its misconception that if Israel will merely keep waiting, the diplomatic issue will resolve itself.” He said Israel should preempt Trump’s plan with steps to save the two-state solution like freezing construction in isolated settlements and compensating those willing to leave them.

On the Right, Bayit Yehudi MK Moti Yogev said Israel must tell Trump that just like he realized Jerusalem belonged to Israel, the rest of the Land of Israel also belongs to the Jewish state and must remain under Israeli sovereignty forever.

Trump should be told that Israel should retain all their land for several reasons, including a promise from God, the history of Jewish control of the land, the fact that Arabs fare better under Jewish rule than Arab rule, and strategic and security reasons

Zehut Party leader Moshe Feiglin accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of persuading Trump to support the creation of a Palestinian state after it initially appeared the US president would be open to other alternatives.

“Netanyahu led Trump to the views he expressed in his Bar-Ilan speech, his terrible two-state idea, and the continuation of the Oslo process,” Feiglin said. “The result will be that in return for moving the embassy sign from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, our capital will be divided and there will be an additional US embassy in Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine.”

    Israels left ( like the left in most places ) is a fifth column.
    Seems like they want to take down their own nations / create a ” new ” , socialist / communist world…
    Of course with them in power.
    History repeating itself…

    Well – I hope for Pres. Trump/ the USA , that
    they dont make any deal which is bad for Israel !
    This would first of all be bad for Prez. Trump / the USA !
    The God of Israel/ the only God – HE says :
    “He who curses Israel – I will curse him ”

    The myth of the socalled “Palestinian people ”
    is known to be the biggest lie of our days – Mr Trump knows it of course ! There never was
    a “palestinian people ” – nor a “palestinian” state ! Never !

    Those who brought up this lie / stick to this lie,
    they want to destroy Israel, want to finish Hitlers job !

    They can try – but its “shooting” their feet “…

    There is no deal that is good for all Palestinians Only ones that are good for .for some, and disenfranchise others. If this is any good for Hamas or Abbas it shouldn’t take to long until they start killing each other again.
