"The settlement will be called "Ramat Trump", Hebrew for "Trump Heights" and isn't exactly new. Currently known as Bruchim, it is over 30 years old and has a population of 10 people.

"Thank you PM @netanyahu and the State of Israel for this great honor!" Trump tweeted later on Sunday."

This is more fake news, that yuuge metropolis will be called Gonif Trump.

And while it only has a population of ten...it turns out that netanyahu's wife has office space there that she has rented to the MAGA 2020 reelection committee for $150,000 a month.

Welcome to Trump Heights, the Israeli Town That Doesn't Exist

No new community named for U.S. President Donald Trump was actually established on Sunday in the Golan Heights. As even the founder of the Knesset caucus for the Golan, Kahol Lavan MK Zvi Hauser, observed: "Anyone who reads the fine print of the ‘historic' decision understands that this is a conceptual decision. There is no funding. There is no planning. There is no location and there is really no committed decision. That's what the ‘Israbluff'" – to borrow a term from Israeli comedy, avoiding a problem with a fictional solution – "of establishing of a new community in the Golan Heights looks like. Salah Shabati at his best," he added, referring to the 1964 Israeli satire film.

It's becoming obvious that the only thing a foreign country needs to do to get Trump to make radical foreign policy moves is to offer to name something after him. I look forward to Iran's "Trump Nuke."

In my dictionary "Ramat" translates to "Missile target"...

She's a grifter like Trump. Just plead guilty to stealing government money and resources, but got a sweetheart deal.

Her hubby will be facing far more serious charges - bribery, conspiracy, etc

It doesn't get much Trumpier than this. Empty town, empty gesture, empty president. But hey, Trump gets another piece of junk with his name in it, so the emperor has received the requisite flattery to ensure continued support.

Better than being a chickensh-t who ignores Israeli war crimes.

Also taking advantage of genetic cursors is a far simpler target, I mean since they all claim to be related. Inevitably that will be put to the test because the Israeli are not "defending themselves" but in fact are racist slime.

The settlements are filled with insanely bigoted, mind-wiped religious zealots. Nobody should miss them, and in fact we should rejoice when they are pushed back inside of their death cult synagogues.

Nothing the Israeli have done in the past decade leads me to believe they are worthy of anything less than absolute removal. And who knows, perhaps three generations hence they will realize their behavior is abominable and a weakness? I highly doubt it.

Yes, there are fine people on both sides who underwhelm.

Come on. They just need a little Lebensraum.

What's wrong with that?
