Odd, isn’t it?
President Trump finally does what Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama promised to do. He announces the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
And suddenly, Leftists are rending garments and gnashing teeth over the impending violence that will erupt from Muslims in the Middle East.
Violence from Muslims in the Middle East … is that new?
Trump's Jerusalem decision will surely cause a violent backlash and loss of human life. Maybe that's what he wants. Then he can tweet about how it proves him right that Muslims are violent. How will we ever undo the damage of this Presidency?

Senator Dianne Feinstein who, in 1995 voted to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, wrote a letter to President Trump pointing out:
Doing so would spark violence, further alienate the United States and undermine the prospects of a two-state solution.
She went on to tell the President relocating our Embassy to Jerusalem (which she voted for in 1995) “will spark violence and embolden extremists on both sides of this debate.”
But I’m really confused.
All the kvetching is coming from people who constantly tell us that Islam is peaceful.
So why on earth would we need to worry about sparking violence?
Has DiFi been in a coma for the last twenty years? Muslims have been “sparking violence” the entire time the American Embassy has been in Tel Aviv.
As Kurt Schlichter pointed out on Twitter last night:
Notice how liberals consider Arabs to be mindless barbarians incapable of reacting to something they oppose without violence? https://t.co/NmYPg9eiZw

Another way to look at this is finally the Left is admitting the Islam isn’t peaceful.
The purpose of terrorism is to threaten force or violence to coerce governments for political gain.
President Trump just proved that he will not cave in to the non-stop threats of violence from terrorists.
And by crowing that we can’t move the Embassy to Jerusalem because there will be violence, the Left is admitting that Muslims use violence and threats of violence to coerce governments.
Like the Palestinian Authority’s own President Abbas did yesterday:

So on the one hand, I’m glad that Leftists finally caught on and no longer consider Islam peaceful.
How else would you explain the “please don’t antagonize the Muslims” attitude we’re seeing right now?
Why is everyone worried about a violent backlash over Trump moving the embassy to Jeruslam?
We all know Islam is a religion of peace.
I don’t get it. 🤔https://t.co/nvtOKkj61M

But the truth is the Left has set their hair on fire over every single thing President Trump has done since taking office.
So it’s hardly a surprise that they’re howling to the heavens over this.
But demanding that President Trump avoid doing the right thing so as not to anger the Muslims is pretty much caving to terrorism.
And while US policy has always been we will not negotiate with terrorists, for the last two decades we’ve been willing to alter our foreign policy at the first threat of violence.
And isn’t that negotiating with terrorists?
By announcing this move to Jerusalem, President Trump just made it clear that he will not be cowed by terrorist threats.
What has been lacking on the world stage for the last couple decades is decisive, courageous leadership on the part of the United States.
And while some foreign leaders are wringing their hands in terror over the President’s decision, some are following his lead.

The bottom line is this.
No “two-state solution” or “peace process” will ever be accomplished so long as one side advocates for the complete destruction of the other.
And no amount of appeasement has stopped the violence in the Middle East.
For eight years Obama bent over backwards to appease Muslims. And did it bring peace between Israel and the so-called Palestinian “state?”
Not at all.
Because Palestinians don’t want peace – they want Israel marginalized, abandoned and destroyed — all things Barack Obama helped along.
After all, thanks to Obama, Iran has hundreds of millions of dollars more to fund the terrorists looking to destroy Israel.
Appeasement doesn’t work. Because these guys will never be satisfied until Israel is wiped off the face of the earth.
So why the hell would we continue to appease them?
By his actions yesterday, President Trump sent a clear signal to the world. We will no longer appease the purveyors of violence.
And we will not cave to threats of terror.
This is true American leadership.
And that’s something we haven’t seen for quite some time.
