UPDATE #2 12-8-2017 0800 PST. The second day of rioting has already started after near total chaos on the West Bank and Gaza on the 7th. The link to the Sun Article is here. The time difference is about 10 hours from PST to Jerusalem. We have over 250 people injured on the West Bank alone so far, and things haven’t even really started yet.
UPDATE: THE INTIFATA HAS ALREADY STARTED SINCE I WROTE TODAY’S BLOG ENTRY. THE LINKS ARE HERE.
Palestinians protest Trump move on Jerusalem
By ILAN BEN ZION
JERUSALEM (AP) — Hundreds of Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli troops across the West Bank on Thursday while demonstrators in Gaza burned posters of President Donald Trump over his widely denounced decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The leader of the Hamas militant group, which runs Gaza, called for a new armed uprising in a widespread show of anger, as the demonstrators torched American and Israeli flags.
In the West Bank, crowds of protesters set tires on fire and hurled stones at Israeli troops. In Bethlehem, troops fired water cannons and tear gas to disperse a crowd, in clashes that could cloud the upcoming Christmas celebrations in the town of Jesus’ birth. In Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian government, protesters set tires on fire, sending a thick plume of black smoke over the city.
After yesterday’s blog post, the situation in the Middle East has already spiraled into violence. This is no surprise to anybody keeping track of the Islamic response to Trump’s Jerusalem decision. However, the violence of Thursday will, in my opinion, be dwarfed by the violence unleashed after 1.5 BILLION Muslims pour out of their mosques Friday night, 12-8-2017. Here are some thoughts from my timebomb post.
The Friday Mosque services in the Middle East are going to be flashpoint for several reasons.
One. The Muslim authorities will have had two or three days to prepare. It will be one giant flash mob, stirred up by the Immam/s speaking in their sermons.
Two. It will be all Muslims, some 1.5 billion of them, who will be focused on Jerusalem.
Three. The violence is planned, trained for and will be “spontaneous,” in the same sense the Benghazi attacks were due to that video and they stormed the consulate.
Four. The USA is right now deploying multiple FAST, fleet armed security teams, a 40 person strong marine unit to enhance selected embassies, etc, to the Middle East. The US doesn’t do that, unless they expect the embassies to be stormed by howling mobs.
Five. All of the various Muslim groups are now on the same page, with the same tactics and the same goals.
Six. It is unknown how Hezzbollah, Hamas, ISIS and Al Qaida will react to this opportunity to unleash a new Infitata.
Seven. If Little Fat Boy takes the opportunity to do another missile test, or detonate a nuke warhead, who knows where this will all go.
Nowski, the BLM types have made tactical alliances with various Militant Islam groups, which is a much under reported story here in CONUS. I fully expect to see Mosque riots in both Europe and the USA.
