    TRUMP/BIBI/ADELSON BUY THE SENATE
    by Eric Margolis
    February 1, 2020

    In 1916, as World War I raged on, a British diplomat, Mark Sykes, met with his French counterpart from the Quai díOrsay, Monsieur Picot, and signed an agreement to partition the Ottoman Empire once victory was achieved.

    The heart of the Mideast Ė Palestine, Syria and Iraq Ė was divided between Britain and France. Italy and Russia were offered other Ottoman lands: southern Turkey was promised to Italy and Constantinople to Russia. All this was top secret but was later revealed by the Bolsheviks after their 1917 revolution.

    We have not seen such an example of breathtaking cynicism and perfidy until this week when President Donald Trump unveiled his so-called ĎDeal of the Centuryí as his final solution to the fate of the long-suffering Palestinians.

    Standing next to Trump was Israelís beaming Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who just got more land than his far-right, expansionist coalition had even dreamed of. It was not a coincidence that Trump had recently been accused of high crimes by the US House, while his buddy ĎBibií had just been indicted for low crimes by Israelís attorney general.

    However, the real godfather in this historic theft was sitting almost unnoticed by media next to the presidential podium, looking very much the proverbial cat that swallowed the canary. Billionaire gambling mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife beamed as their Ďboysí, Trump and Bibi, proclaimed their newly configured Mideast.

    Close by was Trumpís son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a friend of the Netanyahu clan. Kushnerís father, Charles, served 14 months in federal prison for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering. Such is the milieu from which real estate developer Trump emerged.

    Under Trumpís Ďdeal,í Israel is to formally annex about 30% of the West Bank, the Arab area it conquered in the 1967 war. This will include all Jerusalem and an archipelago of Jewish settlements on the West Bank that were implanted to thwart any possible creation of a viable Palestinian state.

    Israel will control all borders of the resulting Palestinian entity, a patchwork of feeble, isolated South-African apartheid Bantustans with no airports, no control over its airspace or maritime borders Ė and no interest in its increasingly important offshore energy resources. Israel gets most of the West Bankís useful farmland and water resources. Palestinians are left with scrub, sand and some goats.

    Palestinianís claim of a right of return for their 5 million refugees scattered around Israelís borders will be forever rejected. Israelís right wing says there is no room for any Palestinians, though room was found in previous years for one million Russians, Jews and non-Jews. More are hoped for if Vladimir Putin gives the green light. All attempts by Palestine to seek remedies from the International Court of Justice will be quashed.

    The rich oil Arabs of the Gulf and Saudi Arabia will be asked to buy off Palestinian refugees. They have stabbed the Palestinians in the back. Deeply fearful of Iran, these kleptomaniac Arab monarchies have thrown themselves at Trumpís feet and are kowtowing to Israelís far right. Israel has achieved a brilliant victory by enlisting the oil Arabs on its side and presiding over the deep split in Palestinian ranks between the PLO and Hamas.

    The Greater Israel crowd in the US has almost total control of Americaís Senate. This is mainly thanks to Adelsonís donations of over $100 million to the Republicans and relentless support from pro-Israel media like Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, NBC and Hollywood.

    Add to this the unquestioning support of 80% of Evangelicals who make up a quarter of Republican voters. This cult believes that Christ will return once modern Israel attains its Biblical borders, and then Earth can be destroyed by fire and brimstone. Israel has cleverly exploited these credulous rustics who form Trumpís key electoral base. Trump is increasingly being compared to the Bibleís King David of Israel. Thatís a long way from Queens, New York.

    As they ask in my native New York City, ďIs it good for the Jews?Ē, the answer is a resounding no! The Trump-Bibi theft of ancestral Arab lands condemns Arabs and Jews to another five decades of violence and hatred. The Promised Land was not supposed to be like this.

    The Adelson's are wacko, his wife wrote this:

    Miriam Adelson gushed, "Trump should enjoy sweeping support among US Jews, just as he does among Israelis. That this has not been the case (so far; the 2020 election still beckons) is an oddity that will long be pondered by historians. Scholars of the Bible will no doubt note the heroes, sages, and prophets of antiquity who were similarly spurned by the very people they came to raise up. Would it be too much to pray for a day when the Bible gets a 'Book of Trump'?"

    She ended her article suggesting, "Until that is decided, let us, at least, sit back and marvel at this time of miracles for Israel, for the United States, and for the whole world". No less.

    Combine that with the EU telling Trump to screw off with Iran and his middle east moves look really foolish.

    No, you just don't understand how Trump plays 7 dimensional chess.

    In 2022 the trumpists here will chant: "Kushner for President"

    Adelson = Jews? Thats one ugly antisemitic trope you just articulated. Didn’t take much work for that stereotype to come out.

    Commenting on how crazy Adelson's wife has now become a trope?
    You're getting out of control, basketcase.

    Kind of like Democratic Majority of Israel, the same group that bragged on video about killing Corbyn's election by calling him 'anti-Semitic', the same group that's now going after Sanders.
    I'm sure they're going to call Bernie an anti-semite next, or accuse him of using tropes.
    Just like you here on this board.

    This guy Margolis always writes an entertaining narrative. I suppose liberal elites believe most evangelicals are deeply concerned about Israel. It's hard to tell if evangelicals are staunchly behind Israel or if like most Americans they are just tired of Palestinian hostility towards the existence of Israel.

    Yes, commenting that Jews are buying the US is anti-semitic.

    It's funny because I remember you bitching about Trump's anti-semitism when one of his ads featured rich Jews. Seems you are okay with racism as long as it aligns with your politics.

    Trying to take a comment about the wife of Adelson and pretending that's about 'all Jews' is pretty low, basketcase.
    Adelson is filthy rich from his casinos and spends it on turning Israel apartheid, so its not surprising you're here defending his influence.
    But in no way does he represent the entire people anymore than Bernie Sanders does (whose positions I support)

    Keep digging your anti-semitic hole deeper.

    As I said, you said Trump was racist because one of his election ads focused on rich Jews but here you are alleging rich Jews are dictating US politics. It is funny to see you agree with trump's ads though.

    Quite clearly, you are okay with anti-semitism if you think it helps your crusade against Israel.

    Like I say, this is one person and his views and money spent are clearly documented.
    They are contrasted by people like Sanders and organizations like JStreet.
    Your dog whistle is getting pretty worn out now.

    This is hysterical....you are an unrepentant propagator of antisemetic tropes. You take one individual who happens to be a POS and Jewish and extrapolate that to all Jews. Then you blame others for your own conflation and simultaneously pretend to be calling others out for your own statements.

    That’s pathetic, narcissistic and racist.

    Trump's people had the exact same excuses for their attacks on certain rich Jews and you condemned them for it.

    Sorry but you have repeatedly shown you have no interest in human rights or being against racism. You are also just as anti-semitic as Trump's supporters when it serves your interest. You also have an elitist form of racism when you make excuses for non-white countries instead of criticizing them.

    You also must claim the Pope is anti-Catholic.

    You're making shit up here, basketcase.
    The only thing I did on this thread was quote how wacko Adelson's wife is.
    Do you really think its anti-semitic to quote her?
    Miriam Adelson gushed, "Trump should enjoy sweeping support among US Jews, just as he does among Israelis.

    You really are turning into a chicken little type with accusations of anti-semitism.
    All this to support someone who once declared that Palestinians don't exist?
    Why do you defend racists so often now?

    So you didn't complain of anti-semitism when Trump's ads focused on rich Jews?

    As usual, you are driven by partisan politics instead of morals.
