    Due to the actions of Donald Trimp, the city of Nazareth has cancelled its Christmas celebration. As a resilt, you cannot say "Merry Christmas: in the town where Jesus was born because of Trump.

    How ironic is that?

    Yes it's true as Fox News reports. Trump sure is making an impact, and I'll bet he is enjoying every minute of it.

    I thought Jesus was born in N.Y. in Trump's father's house. Yes Trump can walk on the muddy water of the swamp.

    According to our friends who have spent time in Israel, the celebration included parades and fireworks

    For the record, Jesus was born in Bethlehem, but his hometown was Nazareth

    Yesterday, in Jakarta Indonesia, an estimated 80,000 protestors gathered outside the U.S. embassy to protest Trump's decision.

    He sure knows how to bring people together

    The book, Eisenhower 1956, details how the Suez canal crisis of 1956 changed the moderating force in the Middle East from Britain to America

    As a result, Trump is essentially undoing 60 years of history

    Yes you got it right; yes I know what happened in Indonesia (was a Dutch colony) in the past and now; my wife was born there. The US played a dirty game there since WWII.

    It is my perception it goes beyond enjoyment, he feeds off it, it energizes him. He needs it, must have it. It is equal to a powerful addictive drug. It's especially enhanced when he is able to increase the hatred of two two sides have against each other. Jews vs Muslims, Democrats vs Republicans, Whites vs Blacks, Men vs Women, etc.

    That is so sad. And what makes it worse, if trump were to see it in the news, he would consider an endorsement of his decision.

    Trump has now threatened those countries who do not agree with his Jerusalem stance, that he will no longer support those countries and will stop "aid" to them. In an UN vote about 81 countries are against Trump's stupidity. Sorry Trump will never learn what is diplomacy. Sick to the bone; more and more countries start hating the US.

    Nikki Haley is an total nutcase; she's even dumber than Trump; yes if you come from S.C. no wonder. All Republicans need some education on how the world works and thinks; an brainless "island" mentality does not help.

    As per Al Jazeera,

    "At an emergency session of the body's General Assembly on Thursday, 128 countries voted in favour of a resolution rejecting US President Donald Trump's controversial decision on December 6.

    "Nine countries voted against, while 35 abstained."

    They include a list of who voted for it and against it and who abstained.

    So Trump is throwing an appreciation party for those countries that supported him. Won't be a very big party.

    The problem which the 7 year old kid does not see, that if you side with Israel, then automatically you get all the Muslim world against you as well promote terrorism. The whole of western Europe voted for; so the threat to "punish" them includes them as well. Nice going; that is how you treat your "partners". This country has become "isolated" from the world.

    Ever since the Suez canal crisis of 1956, the United States has assumed the role of the chief peace-keeper in the Middle East.

    That just changed.

    Yesterday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that he would reject the US as a peace broker in Israel. Instead, he will be relying on the government of Emmanuel Macron.

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/dec/22/mahmoud-abbas-calls-on-france-to-step-up-as-he-rejects-us-as-peace-broker

    In essence, Trump has just undone 60 years of diplomacy with just a few ill chosen words.

    Pence visited Jeruzalem and enforced the statement of putting the US Embassy there. Of course our "Super Christian" asshole pushes for that. Lets have some more wars we don't have enough of them. I guess Macron will do a better job in peace keeping.
