Why are top Democrats supporting Trump’s crazy plan to move Israel’s capitol to Jerusalem?

DC’s leading Democrat Chuck Schumer backs Trump’s plan to move the capital of Israel to Jerusalem. Hey Dems! Trump’s crazy, right? Then why are top democrats like Schumer agreeing with Trump’s loonier foreign policy goals? On March 6th, Schumer actually claimed at an AIPAC conference that the reason there is no peace between Israel and Palestine is that Palestinians don’t believe in the Torah. No kidding!

I don’t believe the Torah either. Or the Quran or the Bible. Wasn’t there some vague concept of separation of church and state floating around a few years ago? The US is already dealing with a nut job of a president who actually managed to trick deranged Christian evangelicals that he’s a man of the faith in between his p#ssy-grabbing and flings with hookers. Now the leading NY democrat is advocating US foreign policy based on a dusty book of fairy tales prized in some other country?

This is the crap the elites of both parties are up to while their mouthpieces in the media rant non-stop about Russia. I wish our news was as eager to critique Trump’s, Schumer’s and far too many others’ disturbing, decades-long and expensive collusion with Israel. Obama was allegedly chillier to Israel–so “chilly” that he approved a largest ever $38 billion military budget pay-out to fund Israel’s oppression of Palestine. And yes, even Bernie Sanders voted to move the capitol from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in June 2017. This is a national sickness. As former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney explains in the video below , unless Congressional candidates of any stripe signed a pledge to Israel, they didn’t get funding for elections from their party.

Schumer at AIPAC: “Now, let me tell you why – my view, why we don’t have peace. Because the fact of the matter is that too many Palestinians and too many Arabs do not want any Jewish state in the Middle East. The view of Palestinians is simple, the Europeans treated the Jews badly culminating in the Holocaust and they gave them our land as compensation.
Of course, we say it’s our land, the Torah says it, but they don’t believe in the Torah. So that’s the reason there is not peace. They invent other reasons, but they do not believe in a Jewish state and that is why we, in America, must stand strong with Israel through thick and thin.”

Schumer’s disgraceful remarks drew immediate fire. Well, from the few who dared to cover it, that is. If you google “Chuck Schumer AIPAC speech Torah” and hit News, you’ll find very few major news outlets even mentioning a leading Democrat outdoing even Trump in his support of Israel. The good news is that progressives, some Democrats, and younger jews are sick of funding Israel’s atrocities toward Palestinians, and view the the occupation as the human rights violations-fest that it is.

Journalist David Klion via twitter: “As your constituent, neighbor, and fellow Jew, really appalled by this, @SenSchumer. Bigoted, divisive, embarrassing, as is the fact that you let your caucus gut Dodd-Frank while you were busy sucking up to AIPAC. New Yorkers deserve better representation.”

Investigative journalist and historian Gareth Porter: At #AIPAC, Democrats try to outdo Trump in their devotion to Israel’s oppression of Palestinians. Schumer explains why there is “no peace”: It’s because the Torah says the land belongs to the Jews, but the stubborn Palestinians don’t believe in the Torah.

Tell me how US foreign policy isn’t driven by religious beliefs again?!”
