Default Is Trump going to set the ME on fire?

What if he bends to the Israeli pressure and actually move the US embassy to Jerusalem? He can easily set the whole Middle East (possible World) on fire People seem to be preoccupied with other distractions.

The middle east will always be a shit show. The US intervention has always used this to take advantage of the instability but even without that the region is not able to live harmoniously amongst each other because of religion.

Religion of peace kills.

There are more Palestinians today than there were before or since Israel's existence. The Palestinian population has more than tripled in the time that Israel has been a state.

"Genocide"

"Genocide"

Legal definition of Genocide -

Quote:
“Acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group such as:

(a) Killing members of the group;

(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;

(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.”

At least they still don't have black slaves, the women can drive, the women are equal to men, women can leave her husband without being jailed or executed. gays can be out in the open without being tossed off buildings, Christians can practice their religion without being persecuted, you can switch religions without executed, etc.

Yep. DEFINITELY the shining light of civilization in the middle east.

Looks like Kushner has been tasked to draw up a peace plan along with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. A big gamble but it's not like all the other plans have worked. Time will tell if this plan has legs and also if Kushner is around long enough to see it through.

Egypt, not SA or Qatar, is ranked the worst place in the ME for women. You have LBGT Palestinians desperately trying to get into Israel because of the intolerance. Keep that anti-progressive stance up though.

Ranked worst by who? I just googled "worst country for women" and almost almost all of the top results had Afghanistan or war-torn African countries in first place.

Anyway, even if you happened to find some ranking system that claims Egypt is the worst place for women, that was not the case prior to the US lighting the middle east on fire.

Hilarious that you would call me "anti-progressive" while proclaiming that Israel is a "shining light"
