12/8/17 Philip Weiss on Trump’s Jerusalem decision

Philip Weiss, editor of Mondoweiss.net, returns to the show to discuss Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel and his future plans to move the U.S. embassy there in the future. According to Weiss Trump’s decision extinguishes the peace process and is a moment of great despair for those who believed the Oslo Accord would lead to the creation of a Palestinian state. Weiss then details the history of Israeli land annexation from Palestinians in Jerusalem dating back to the the 1940s. Weiss believes that ultimately Palestinian freedom will require American Jews to demand equal political representation for Palestinians. Scott then turns the subject to “Russia-gate” and the grand omission from much of the media: Michael Flynn’s behind-the-scenes work to torpedo the U.N. resolution that condemned Israeli settlements.

    Israel existed as a state for only 832 years starting in BC 1405.
    And for over 2,000 years, until the 1900’s, Palestine was only 6% Jews.
    For a fact, the Israelite colony in Palestine is 90% Europeans.

    Jerusalem — A city in Canaan for over 2,700 years
    Jerusalem — A city in Israel for 832 years
    Jerusalem — A city in Palestine for over 2,500 years

    Police know that the educated and greed driven upper-half of society hoards all the land
    and wealth, which causes the uneducated and impoverished lower-half to be fit to kill.
    Yes___ No___

    If you drive a junky car or give the appearance of being poor, uneducated or non-white,
    then be very careful that you do not act angry, hostile, contemptuous or dangerous in
    the presence of police. For in all probability you will be shot dead.
    Yes___ No___

    And so, if both answers are not all Yes___, then if you are a laboring man,
    stay away from police or your life is not worth a plug nickel.
