Israel Regional Message Board
National unity government - I'll give you that. But without bibi it simply not going to happen. More than 2 million people voted for him (either LIkud or parties that had declared they'd only join Bibi), and far less voted for gantz.
You're clueless. Unfortunately, the media campaign succeeded this time, clearly with you. Absolutely nothing more wrong with Bibi's behavior relatively to previous PMs. The police and state attorneys really crossed the line, making legal constructions never before heard of, anywhere on the planet, just to twist the voters' judgement. Positive coverage of a politician - a bribe? Give me ONE example of such a case anywhere in the western world. If that were the case 90% of politicians in the world would be found guilty, and the remaining 10% are just failed politicians.
Read what Allan Dershowitz, not one of Bibi's fans, wrote on this subject. Read what Ruth Gavison, a clear leftist, wrote on this.
Give me a break... It is an attempted coup by legal means, "plain and simple."
Because of Donald Trump's abandonment of the SDF and enabling of the Turkish invasion, I have never been more ashamed to be an American than I have this week.
I understand your sentiments. While I'm not ashamed to be an American, I'm very angry that President Trump has abandoned the Kurds, and allowed the escape of hundreds of Isis prisoners. This action will come back to haunt the USA and our allies.
Any involvement of the US is a force for good, and should be thanked for, but the region's prosperity or quiet cannot and should not depend solely on the good graces of the US and its troops.
While this decision does complicates things, allowing Suni Turkey to cause havoc in Syria and at the same time strengthening Assad and its Shi'ite allies, and while the seemingly hasty thought-process behind this decision puzzles many in the region, I don't think you or any other American have anything to be ashamed of. Quite the opposite. Seeing what a withdrawl of relatively small American force leads to, you should be proud of the good grace your country and your people and leaders were good enough to show the region until now.
Whether or not this decision is in the best interests of the American people is a different question, to which the answer, I humbly think, is far from obvious.
It is interesting to see the reaction to Trumpís decision from both sides of the aisle. Republicans seem to be condemning it, which I think is principled, because they were similarly against Obamaís abandonment of the Kurds in Iraq.
Democrats, too, are upset with the decision - but they werenít with Obamaís abandonment of the Kurds. They even welcomed it. Which is annoying for at least a handful of reasons.
Iím against Trumpís decision. But then, I have always advocated for greater American presence in the Levant (and the Gulf) to, first and foremost, deter Iran.
But to speak of the Kurds specifically, I am very much puzzled by Trumpís decision. Truthfully, I think it was a very bad one, for a few reasons:
1) I see the Kurds like I see myself - and Jews generally. I want them to have a state. And I think theyíd be a good ally, perhaps another bulwark against Iran.
2) It seems like a real betrayal to these people, who shed their blood before ours, and I want American foreign policy to reflect our values, rather than merely our interests. Our operations in Syria were cheap, too, in lives and in treasure.
3) We didnít get much out of this retreat. Turkey didnít give us anything. If they had, Iíd be somewhat more understanding. At best, theyíre a reluctant ally. At worst, a perpetual nuisance, and an enemy of Israel. If they didnít house our nukes, Iíd be even more dismissive of their interests.
4) Still, Trump is doing exactly what he said he would. This wasnít surprising. In fact, heís doing precisely what the Left has been asking for. Which is why Iím surprised by their reaction. Itís not principled. Itís merely a gut reaction against Trump. And if Obama had done this - and he did! - theyíd be congratulating each other for it.
Late note: The abandonment of Kurdish allies may make the acquisition of future allies more difficult. The Poles have, at least privately, referred to American promises of backup as a ďdangerous delusion,Ē and a false hope.
My worry: Would Israel be wrong for coming to the same conclusion? Would Saudi Arabia pursue nukes, believing our guarantees of security to be fickle? Maybe. America doesnít have a great history of supporting our allies (Vietnam, Cuba, Iraq). There are thousands of men and women, buried in shallow graves across the earth, who were foolish enough to trust us.
