"The key statement in this article is "houses across the so-called Green Line marking the borders before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war". That Green Line means exactly jack squat."

There is of course the myth & reality of Israel which is based entirely on whether one believes Israel the modern state which unilaterally declared statehood in 1948 has a Biblical claim to "Greater Israel" or not.
One must remember the UN resolution which "created" Israel not only also created an independent Arab state but declared a "Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem" as well.
The Arab League of Nations rejected the partition which Israel interpreted as nullifying the UN declared borders.
Eretz-Israel was created by declaration of the World Zionist Organization on the expiration of the British Mandate for Palestine.
From that point forward myth overshadows reality & facts on the ground continually lay claim to Israel as a state which lies within its historic borders.

The settlements are illegal under international law, it is not anti-Semitic to state facts.
Countries routinely violate international law, the US included, what remains to be seen is what the world will do to the violators.

Of course under the law of victor gets to keep the territory why did we dispute Iraq's taking of Kuwait or send troops to defend a monarchy?

The US gives billions of dollars to Israel, but it is not actual money but rather grants of military equipment to keep the wheels of the military industrial complex greased.
Remember the USS Liberty before you call Israel our ally.

Trump was elected because he was the best choice, Hillary was a poor candidate.
It really is that simple.
The election was rigged, a candidate which was on the ballot in all 50 states was denied the media coverage & right to debate by the duopoly of the RNC/DNC.
While the RNC embraced Trump for his ability to bring coverage & new voters to the party the RNC mistakenly believed it could exert control over Trump.
This was an outsider election, the majority of the population was been left behind by both business & government, expressed their dissatisfaction with packaged professional politicians of which Hillary is the epitome.

Anyone who objectively followed the presidential campaign cycle saw the biased spin, where Clinton's missteps were minimized & Trump's were exaggerated.

I suspect Trump will rise to the responsibility what was on display during his campaign was his default TV personality, no more real than Clinton's sudden conversion to champion of the working class.

Those who go to great length to be offended by the off mike crudity live in a different world than those of us who have heard similar remarks from high school lockerooms, bars, rap songs, comedy acts, & off color jokes.

And of course those who were outraged at the anti-Obama rhetoric of the right now engage in the exact same behavior.

The reality of course is that the President-elect is invariably shocked by the actual state of the country & whose power is limited to incremental change & it will be no different for Trump.

And no I was not a Trump supporter, I voted for Johnson/Weld two centrist Republicans, but I was an ABC as Clinton is the definition of what is wrong with the political elitism and self serving narcissism of those who seek power.
