Grab your barf bag. No, not that one. The Hefty bag. Ultra-strength if you have it.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday sent President Donald Trump a token of his gratitude for supporting Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, in the form of a “new community” in the disputed territory named after the U.S. leader.
The settlement – to be known as “Trump Heights” – sits within the Golan Heights, which had been occupied for decades by Israel but was not seen as Israeli territory by the U.S. until last March, when Trump officially recognized Israel’s annexation of the region.
American ambassador to Israel David Friedman attended a “festive meeting” Sunday where the new town was inaugurated by the Israeli government, according to Netanyahu’s official Twitter account.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
So we’ve reached the moment in the countdown to Armageddon when a U.S. president gets an illegal settlement named after him — and he couldn’t be more proud about it.
When will Putin give Trump his own chain of Orange Juliuses in Crimea? Will he have to wait until he’s out of office?
Sure, it’s just another crappy real estate development with Trump’s name on it, but usually even he makes sure he has rights to the land before he builds.
Looks like Kushner’s chance of brokering Middle East peace just went from impossible to metaphysically impossible.
