Trump in Bethlehem, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

President Trump is in Saudi Arabia where he will instruct his puppets thengo to apartheid Israel where he'll get further instructions from his masters. Hewill do a token visit to Bethlehem Tuesday and desecrate the city of thePrince of Peace with his entourage of racist Zionists. I wish I was thereto join demonstrations against this symbol of hypocrisy (I am still inEurope). Everyone now knows that the US government, Israel, and the Saudiregime have been the biggest perpetrators of terrorism and genocide in theworld. This is to serve one interest and one interest only: money.  Just toemphasize this, the US arms industry (owned largely by Zionists) will get110 billion deal (bribe) from the Saudis. Kushner is very happy as are allthe rich profiteers around Donald Trump. The neoconservatives in Washingtonmay have some differences among themselves (hence the frenzy by theestablishment media around Russia-Trump connections). But make no mistakeabout it, it is a difference as between rival gangsters. Meanwhile theprice of getting the rich richer grows in human lives. Thousands ofcivilians are killed in places like Yemen, Gaza, and Syria.There is a sick collusion of fascists ruling Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar,Israel, and the USA. Sometimes, it almost seems surrealistic. For example theway Erdogan's body guards broke through the barricades and attackedpeaceful demonstrators in Washington DC while he looked on was bizarre(where is the US justice system from all of this?).  But the empire isfacing resistance and failing. There is a retreat of US/Israel created ISISin Iraq and Syria and Saudi puppet forces (merceneries) are bogged downVietnam style  in Yemen. Iaq, Syria, Iran, and its supporters like Russiaand China are withstanding years of assault. Trump's mission to wage war onIran for Israel will not work any better than Bush's war on Iraq forIsrael. Times are changing though the imperialist mentality still persists.In 1916, the two great powers at the time Britain and France drew theSykes/Picot agreement carving up the Arab world (divide and conquer). In1917 they pledged their support for Zionism in the form of the Balfour andJules Cambon declarations partly as quid pro quo to get the Zionists todrag the US into WWI. The US shortly joined not just the bloody war but thesupport of Zionism. These powers then held the San Remo conference in 1920that focused on furthering the divide and conquer strategy followedimediately by appointing the first Jewish Zionist (Herbert Samuels) to ruleand ethnically cleanse Palestine. In the intervening 100 years, nearly 200million died needlessly (not counting one child dying every six seconds ofhunger today) to profit the elites which have been called by various namesbut can be summed up as a military-industrial-banking complex (increasinglychanging from WASP dominated to Zionist dominated). Alas history ignored ishistory repeated.....I continue on a very productive week in Luxembourg and then Belgium. Muchnetworking and solidarity and discussion of those issues that impact lifefor every human being (including Europeans). Many people are awakened andmany offer to help and support for the sake of justice and human rights. Weeven had a demonstration in Luxembourg for the prisoners on hunger strikewell attended even with the heavy rain.
