This will be bad, clashes break out in West Bank over Trump Jerusalem speech

Source: Washington Post

RAMALLAH, West Bank Skirmishes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers broke out Thursday in Ramallah and other places in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, one day after President Trump announced that his administration would recognize Jerusalem as Israels capital.

The Palestinian Authority called for a general strike in Palestinian cities and, in Gaza, the Islamist Hamas movement urged its followers to ignite a third intifada, or uprising, against Israel.

At a checkpoint near Ramallah, Israeli forces fired dozens of rounds of tear gas and stun grenades at hundreds of Palestinian protesters gathering to air their anger over Trumps statement. They burned tires and pelted the soldiers with rocks.

This will be bad, said an ambulance driver.

1. Link doesn't work, and the title doesn't sound much like the Washington Post

Please provide a working link, and use the exact title from the link, as per LBN rules.

Thanks,
An LBN host.

4. Of course!

The Palestinians will riot and create "intifidas" if anyone in Israel DARES to question them!

As to Hamas, they still are demanding the destruction of Israel and the Jews, and STILL put out propaganda even to little kids lionizing "martyrs."

And BTW, Trump's decisiuon to move our embassy to Jerusalem is (bleep)-ing stupid.

8. That this incompetent FOOL is being allowed to destabilize the globe

endangering lives around the world by initiating a widely condemned, dangerous foreign policy change, one that benefits this country not at all, is an obscene crime for which
the entire Republican Party needs to be held accountable.

This MoFo is going to screw up any hopes of Middle East peace,, and get God knows how many killed...They should NEVER be forgiven for their criminal recklessness.
