The Jerusalem Post: We should look forward to the opening of Israel’s embassy in Saudi Arabia

 
The Israeli newspaper said that Saudi Arabia was never a supporter of radical actions against Israel. We never heard an official support for Hamas from Saudi Arabia authorities.

We in Israel and all Jews around the world need to adopt the policy of friendship with Saudi Arabia and welcome them with open arms.

One day we must have an embassy or at least an office in Riyadh. We should tell and remind our friends the need for defending our friendship with Saudi Arabia. Reminding “Iran” for those who are opposed is necessary.

TURKEY HAS DECLARED WAR ON SYRIA – DOES THIS MEAN THAT WORLD WAR 3 IS ABOUT TO ERUPT IN THE MIDDLE EAST?

 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has just announced that the only reason Turkish military forces have entered northern Syria is to “end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad”. 

By publicly proclaiming that Turkey intends to use military force to overthrow the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Erdogan has essentially declared war on the Syrian government.  Of course this puts a member of NATO in direct military conflict with Russia, since Russia is working very hard to prop up the Assad regime.  If all-out war breaks out between Turkey and Russia, could that be the spark that causes World War 3 to erupt in the Middle East?  And once Turkey and Russia start fighting, would the United States and the rest of NATO be dragged into the conflict?

The big mainstream news networks in the western world are almost completely ignoring what Erdogan said on Tuesday, but without a doubt this is major news.  The following comes from a Turkish news source

The Turkish military launched its operations in Syria to end the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Nov. 29.

“In my estimation, nearly 1 million people have died in Syria. These deaths are still continuing without exception for children, women and men. Where is the United Nations? What is it doing? Is it in Iraq? No. We preached patience but could not endure in the end and had to enter Syria together with the Free Syrian Army [FSA],” Erdoğan said at the first Inter-Parliamentary Jerusalem Platform Symposium in Istanbul.

Turkish military forces initially invaded northern Syria on August 24th, and at the time we were all told that the purpose of the invasion was to “fight ISIS”, but now Erdogan is telling us something completely different.

Breitbart is one of the few U.S. news outlets that is reporting on this story, and I want you to read the following quotes from Erdogan that come from a Breitbart article that was posted on Tuesday very, very carefully…

“Why did we enter? We do not have an eye on Syrian soil. The issue is to provide lands to their real owners. That is to say we are there for the establishment of justice. We entered there to end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror,” Erdogan continued, insisting his forces were not in Syria for “any other reason.”

The Daily Sabah notes that Erdogan spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin about Syria during two telephone calls last week. Since Russia launched a massive military operation to secure Bashar Assad in power, Putin would presumably have been interested in anything Erdogan had to say about toppling the regime in Damascus, and probably would not have kept quiet about it.

If the Turkish military is only in Syria to end the Assad regime, then presumably they will stay there until the job is done.

And this puts Turkey into a direct military conflict with Russia, Iran and Hezbollah since all three of them are already fighting very hard to help the Assad regime.

Of course there is another reason why Turkey is in northern Syria, and that is to fight the Kurds.  In fact, the Kurds and Turkey are both rushing to capture a little city northeast of Aleppo called al-Bab which is currently controlled by the Islamic State

Their immediate challenge is securing al-Bab, an Islamic State-held city northeast of Aleppo which Kurdish-led fighters are racing to take, and which lies close to the front lines of Assad’s allies.

Turkish-backed forces have made rapid gains since August, but largely through less heavily populated areas. Urban warfare around al-Bab is already taking a heavier toll. Five Turkish soldiers have been killed in the past week alone, three of them in a suspected Syrian government air strike.

“Right now the question is whether Russia will allow Turkey to seize al-Bab,” said the Muntasir Billah Brigade official.

But most people in the western world don’t know that Turkish soldiers are already dying in Syria.

Here in the United States, tens of millions of Americans are hailing a new era of “peace and prosperity” now that Donald Trump has won the election, but the truth is that one false move in Syria could easily raise tensions between the United States and Russia to the highest level that we have seen since the Cuban missile crisis back in the 1960s.

If Erdogan would have just stayed out of Syria we wouldn’t be in such a precarious situation.  Unfortunately, the president of Turkey is a narcissistic lunatic, and he dreams of a day when the old Ottoman Empire will once again be restored.

But his delusions of greatness threaten to make the Middle East even more unstable than it already has been.  In addition to his remarks above, on Tuesday Erdogan also called on all Muslims globally “to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged Muslims to defend the Palestinian cause, striking a tough stance on Israel despite improved ties between the two nations.

The president of majority Muslim Turkey said Tuesday that “it is the common duty of all Muslims to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem” and that safeguarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque should not be left to children armed with nothing but stones. Located in the Old City of Jerusalem, the hilltop compound is sacred to Muslims and Jews.

Most people in the western world pay very little attention to Erdogan, but the truth is that he is a madman that is often referred to as “Turkey’s version of Adolf Hitler”.  He is extremely ambitious, extremely nationalistic, and he is a warmonger.  That is a very dangerous combination, and I believe that it is only a matter of time before he starts a major war in the Middle East.

Somebody needs to get this guy under control, but unfortunately the Obama administration has been very hesitant to confront Erdogan about his outrageous behavior.

When Erdogan openly stated that the Turkish military is in Syria to overthrow the Assad regime on Tuesday, that was like lighting a match in a room that has already been doused with propane.

He needs to immediately retract those comments, because his unique brand of lunacy has now brought us dangerously close to the start of World War 3.

POLL: 27% OF EUROPEANS SAY RAPE IS JUSTIFIABLE

A Eurobarometer survey has shown alarming tendencies in attitudes towards sex without consent, with about 27 percent of respondents across the EU saying sex without consent is justifiable.

Most respondents cite reasons like being drunk or on drugs (12 percent), agreeing to go home with someone (11 percent), wearing revealing clothes, or not clearly saying no or physically fighting back (both 10 percent).

Sorted by country, those surveyed in Romania and Hungary tended to be the most likely to say each situation could justify sex without consent, while respondents in Sweden and Spain were among the least likely to say so.

Moreover, more than 40 percent of respondents in the EU believe that harassing women in the street by making sexually offensive jokes should not be illegal, with nine percent in Slovenia and eight percent each in Austria, Germany, and Lithuania saying it is not even wrong.

The survey also asked the respondents about harassment at work: for instance, “touching a colleague in an inappropriate way” should not be illegal, think 48 percent of Hungarians, 42 percent of Estonians, and 38 percent of Lithuanians.

Most respondents also think that sexual harassment against women is either very common (20 percent) or fairly common (half of all respondents).

The location where violent acts occur is most often home, over 85 percent of respondents said, while 19 percent said public places, and another 19 percent said harassment happens most often online.

Perhaps even more alarming is the way many respondents expressed their attitude towards violence against women, with almost a quarter saying that women often make up or exaggerate claims of abuse, and 17 percent saying that it is women who provoke violence.

Latvia proved to be the only country where the majority said the victim is to blame (57 percent), followed by Lithuania (45 percent), and Malta (40 percent). In contrast, only 6 percent of respondents agreed with the statement in the Netherlands, and 9 percent in Sweden.

On the whole, the authors of the survey were optimistic regarding the awareness of violence across the EU.

Still, the survey highlights a few rather disturbing issues: first, 88 percent of the victims do not go to the police to report the offense. Also, there is clearly disagreement among the respondents whether some violent acts should be deemed illegal or even wrong. Finally, at least 70 percent of respondents said that domestic violence and sexual harassment are common in their country (74 and 70 percent, respectively).

Brexit pound slump causes Christmas pudding prices to jump 21%

Britons are facing a jump in prices for traditional Christmaspudding ingredients due to the fall in the value of the pound in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

 

A weaker pound has pushed up the cost of key ingredients such as raisins, which will see the overall price of a Christmas pudding jump by 21 per cent.

Sterling has dropped by nearly 18 per cent against the dollar since the UK voted to leave the EU, becoming the world’s worst-performing currency in October.

 

A lower sterling rate in the wake of the referendum has led to a 3 per cent rise in the price of raisins, which are imported to the UK, while a drop in milk production has sent butter prices up 92 per cent to their highest level in five years, according to commodity data group Mintec.

Christmas pudding costs were also driven by higher import prices for sugar. Meanwhile, UK wheat prices rose because of lower output and increased demand as a higher quality domestic crop led to buyers reducing their exports for UK wheat.

However, the cost of Christmas dinners overall is expected to be up just 1 per cent, according to Mintec.

The price of turkey is down 2 per cent on last year, when prices were hit by an avian flu outbreak.

Mintec warned there could be further hikes as demand rises in December.

“It is worth noting that prices are likely to rise in December as demand continues to increase, so stocking up on turkey and pork early is probably the best course of action,” said the report.

The data group also said it is “highly unlikely” Christmas 2016 will be cheaper than last year due to “key festive treats and decorations costing more money”.

Donald Trump dines with Mitt Romney as Secretary of State speculation continues

Donald Trump ally Roger Stone: "Hillary Clinton increases risk of prosecution by asking for recount" (VIDEO)

A longstanding Donald Trump ally and Republican strategist has claimed Hillary Clinton is more likely to face criminal prosecution under the President-elect’s administration because she is supporting a recount of votes in battleground states.

http://youtu.be/Vv-wpcFWlgY

“I think Hillary increases her chances of prosecution by acting this way,” Roger Stone said on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

Former Green Party nominee Jill Stein called for a recount in Wisconsin and Pennsylvannia and is reportedly planning to request one in Michigan.

The Clinton campaign announced on Saturday it would support the drive to recount votes.

General counsel for the campaign Marc Elias said that while it had not yet found evidence of sabotage, the campaign felt “an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton”.

“We certainly understand the heartbreak felt by so many who worked so hard to elect Hillary Clinton,” Mr Elias said, “and it is a fundamental principle of our democracy to ensure that every vote is properly counted.” 

In the run-up to the election, Mr Trump vowed to appoint a special prosecutor to go after Ms Clinton. But since winning the vote he has indicated he has little interest in doing so, saying earlier in November he would rather not "hurt" the Clinton family.

And the FBI has twice recommended against bringing charges against the Democrat for her use of a secret email when she was Secretary of State.

If the property tycoon were to order the prosecution of Ms Clinton when he entered office as a means of political retaliation, it would be a major breach of the Justice Department's independence from the White House.

Yet Mr Trump's senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, has also connected the issue of the recount with the potential prosecution of Ms Clinton.

She told CNN: “He’s been incredibly gracious and magnanimous to Secretary Clinton at a time when, for whatever reason, her folks are saying they will join in a recount to try to somehow undo the 70-plus electoral votes that he beat her by."

Has Donald Trump's tweet just become a meme?

Hillary Clinton’s campaign recently confirmed its intention to join Green Party candidate Jill Stein in an official request for a recount of the Wisconsin vote and possibly two other states, following claims that the voting system was hacked.

On Sunday, Donald Trump unleashed a tirade against Hillary Clinton and her support of the recount, which he called a “scam”.

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by two million according to the latest count, but Trump disagrees:

Trump claims that the only reason Clinton won the popular vote is because “millions of people” voted for her illegally.

His unsubstantiated statement appears to have come from an article written in infowars, founded by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

The article cites statistics collected by Gregg Philips, founder of VoteStand

Philips offers no evidence, no source data or methodology in that tweet. He simply states his 'findings' as fact.

In a different tweet, he confirmed that they were in the process of “building a case” and were “working on” releasing more information about the statistics. 

The infowars article goes on to conclude:

If true, this would mean that Donald Trump still won the contest despite widespread vote fraud and almost certainly won the popular vote.

The Washington Post called the claims “bogus”, and the New York Times emphasised its lack of evidence.

To say many are unimpressed with his tweeting behaviour is an understatement

And others have begun to use his tweet has a countdown to his inauguration...

One person is predicting a constitutional crisis...

And another is packing all his living into the next month and a half...

A lot of Americans however, are just plain terrified.

The occupiers will fail

One of the great rabbis of Israel:
When Nasrallah said that Israel is weaker than a spider’s house, we thought it’s a psychological war against Israel to boost his troops morale, but it seems that Nasrallah knows our country better than we do. Our government is failed to control the fire in Haifa after four days. Israel is unable to defend its people on the situation of war. In 2000 and 2006 the world ridiculed us, and now Netanyahu has put us again on the situation of being ridiculed, more than any other time period.

'if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally'; Who rigged the election? The LOSER or the WINNER

Even if they are turning away his intelligence briefers, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton know that their latest accusations may have harsh impacts on the nation and public trust.

The US President-elect has insisted on Twitter that he won the presidential popular vote, despite Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton having secured over two million votes more than him at the latest count.

"In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally," Mr Trump insisted in a Saturday afternoon tweet. There is so far no evidence whatsoever of any widespread voter fraud.

The Republican was apparently irritated by the Clinton campaign's participation in a vote recount in three states that helped Mr Trump to reach an expected 306 Electoral College votes - a convincing win, though one that historians would hesitate to describe as a landslide.

Mr Trump claimed throughout his campaign that the election was "rigged". This weekend, he has both attacked the Clinton campaign for daring to re-examine the results, and now insisted that the results are in fact wrong by millons of votes.

Afghanistan Is All Ready To Be Donald Trump’s First Foreign Policy Disaster

U.S. military advisers link up with Afghan security forces near Tarin Kowt, where there has been sustained fighting with Taliban insurgents.

Afghanistan is failing. 

Fifteen years after the United States first scattered the Taliban with high-altitude bombing, the battlefield gains achieved by tens of thousands of U.S. troops are in jeopardy from a resurgent Taliban. 

The United States has spent $115 billion on this longest war in its history. The conflict has taken the lives of 1,865 Americans and wounded 20,224 (as of Nov. 16), many with life-shattering injuries. Yet the main goals set forth by Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama haven’t been achieved: Afghanistan does not have a stable, working democracy and terrorists still find a safe haven there.

Even stalwart defenders of the U.S. intervention, such as Vice President Joe Biden, now seem deeply concerned.

But few people in the U.S. are paying attention.

The 15th anniversary of the start of the war passed last month almost without notice. The stark choices facing President-elect Donald Trump ― more troops? more money? withdrawal? ― received no attention in the presidential campaign, an ill omen for the months ahead when careful and considered action will be needed.

And time is short.

Major cities across Afghanistan are under siege by the Taliban and other Islamic extremist militias, which are steadily taking more territory.

In their path, the U.S. has some 7,000 U.S. troops training and advising Afghan forces, and another 6,000 mostly special forces members engaged in counter-terrorism operations.  Last week, two soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division ― Sgt. John W. Perry, 30, of Stockton, California, and Pfc. Tyler Iubelt, 20, of Tamaroa, Illinois ― were killed by a suicide bomber at Bagram, the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan. Two American contractors, not identified by the Defense Department, died as well, and 17 people were wounded.

Also at risk are tens of thousands of Afghans, especially women and children, who have relied on the U.S. commitment to help safeguard what progress they have made in self-government, human rights and education. In growing violence, 30 people were killed Monday and more than 70 injured in a bomb blast at a Kabul mosque. The Islamic State claimed responsibility.

Little is known about Trump’s views on Afghanistan, although he has suggested that building schools there is a waste of money. In his most detailed comments, he declared in 2012 that the U.S. intervention is “a total and complete disaster.”

It likely will be months before the Trump White House can shift from such criticism toward a coherent strategy for Afghanistan.

Afghan security forces prepare for battle on the outskirts of Kunduz in August.

The Afghan military and police have been unable to reverse the insurgents’ gains, despite the $68 billion spent by the U.S. trying to build up the country’s security forces. The Afghan army loses a third of its soldiers every year between battle casualties, desertions and those who decline to re-enlist. Officials reportedly pocket the pay of legions of non-existent “ghost soldiers.”

The Taliban “continue to expand their influence,” the Pentagon acknowledged this fall. U.S. Army Gen. John Nicholson, the senior commander in Afghanistan, told reporters in July that the overstretched Afghan army has basically conceded parts of the country to the Taliban.

The most recent data provided by the Pentagon to the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction show that among the country’s 407 districts, the number controlled by the government slipped from 267 in May to 258 in August. The Taliban controls only eight districts and influences another 25, according to the Pentagon data. But a new independent analysis found worse news: The Taliban actually controls or influences 97 districts, up from 70 a year ago.

It is from these districts that insurgents have been able to launch serious and continuing assaults on five provincial capitals: Kunduz in the north, Maimana in the northwest, Tarin Kowt in the southeast, Farah city in the west and Lashkar Gah in the south.

The northeast city of Gormach, a vital post on the strategic Ring Road that links a number of major cities, was overrun this fall. Kunduz, where U.S. and allied troops spent years training security forces and helping stabilize the local economy and government, has been overrun twice. This fall, hasty reinforcements of Afghan special forces in Kunduz and Lashkar Gah, aided by U.S. airstrikes and U.S. special forces, narrowly beat back determined Taliban attacks. Rebel forces remain on the outskirts of those cities and sporadic fighting continues.

And in the western city of Mazar e-Sharif, site of a major German and U.S. military base, the German consulate was hurriedly evacuated last week after Taliban fighters attacked with a massive truck bomb, killing four Afghans and wounding 128. 

Local corruption, ethnic squabbling and inept officials have eroded the population’s faith in their government and effectively provided the Taliban with safe bases from which to continue their attacks, according to an analysis by two U.S. Army officerswho served in Kunduz.

The latest Taliban gains, even if temporary, have further shaken the people’s trust. Forty-two percent of Afghans say security is worse than it was under Taliban rule in the 1990s, according to the latest United Nations report. The number of refugees fleeing to Europe has increased 83 percent this year.

As the war grinds on, violence has intensified to horrifying levels and civilians are increasingly the victims. The new Afghan air force alone is responsible for a 72 percent increase in civilian casualties since 2015, the U.N. said. Suicide bomb blasts in July, also the work of Islamic State terrorists, killed 85 peaceful demonstrators and injured 413, in what the U.N. called the single most deadly incident in the country since 2001. And the number of dead and injured children has risen 15 percent this year, as the Taliban has attacked schools and health clinics.

“For God sake, don’t kill innocent Afghans,” an elderly widow from Kunduz, Bibi Gul, told the Pajhwok Afghan News. She had lost her 35-year-old son in the fighting. Stop the war, she begged, “or kill us all together to end our plight forever.”

People are scared, said Patricia Gossman, senior Afghanistan analyst for Human Rights Watch. “There are gains [by the Taliban], and now the attitude is, ‘We have to push them back regardless of the cost.’”

“It’s pretty grim,” she added. Gossman has been visiting and studying Afghanistan since the early 1990s.

Against these daunting problems, the national government’s awkward political power-sharing arrangement, brokered by the U.S. in 2014, has devolved into squabbling. In August, one chief executive declared the other “unfit” to lead the country. Systemic corruption continues to undermine attempts at reform, and opium production is skyrocketing.

“I regret there’s still real problems in Afghanistan,” Biden told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Oct. 16. But with U.S. forces currently engaged in Iraq and Syria, he added, “there has to be a sense of humility about what is able to be done at thetime.”

Yet some military and foreign policy experts argue that the U.S. intervention in Afghanistan, with its goal of a stable nation free of extremists, is not a lost cause yet. A “surge” of U.S. troop reinforcements would certainly help, some argue, and even at current levels, U.S. military advisers in Afghanistan could be given more leeway to engage directly in combat. For many who have served there, the bottom line is this: The United States cannot abandon those Afghans who were promised that the U.S. would stand by them.

Retired Marine Gen. John Allen, who commanded U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan from 2011 to 2013, is one who argues that Afghanistan is not “ready to go over the edge,” even though it might appear so from a distance. “I know from personal experience that Afghanistan always looks better close up,” he told The Huffington Post.

Allen cited the increase in life expectancy for Afghans, from 53 years in 1996 to 60.5 years today, as one hopeful sign that foreign investment in Afghanistan’s schools and health clinics is having an effect.

The retired general said the Obama administration’s decision to reduce U.S. forces in Afghanistan ― and to announce the timetable for the withdrawals ― damaged the American effort there. “That’s been hard to overcome,” he said. “Our words say we are committed; our actions do not.”

“But that’s water under the bridge,” Allen added.

Can Afghanistan’s slide toward failure be arrested?

John F. Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, is in essence a congressionally mandated gumshoe looking over U.S. efforts. In an October report to lawmakers, he wrote that “systemic corruption, aggravated by floods of aid money, undermined the U.S. mission in Afghanistan from the outset and, unless effectively checked, will continue to undermine progress and could ultimately result in mission failure.”

“I’m cautiously optimistic,” he told HuffPost from Afghanistan, adding that he is “impressed at the hard work being done by Afghans in civil society, media and top leadership.”

“But much more remains to be done,” Sopko said.

The new administration should give the nation’s top Afghanistan experts 90 days, Allen suggested, to come up with a plan to bolster that nation’s security, economy and government performance. (He talked to The Huffington Post several days before the election and was not speaking specifically of Trump.)

Perhaps the one clearly wrong decision would be for Trump to put Afghanistan on the backburner. “Our hard-won successes are in the balance,” Sopko said.

And the Taliban advance.

Lebanese newspaper, As-Safir: Egypt is involved in Syrian civil war

The newspaper added: A senior Egyptian diplomat is expected to enter Damascus soon. Probably the diplomat will be “Sameh Shoukry,” Egyptian Foreign Minister or one of his top deputies.

As-Safir also wrote: Egyptians have decided to be active about the regional issues, therefore instead of monitoring and evaluating al-Nusra and its effects against their national security, they want to enter the battle and fight with terrorists. Accordingly, from November 12, Egyptian forces have started their work at Hama’s air base. A group of 18 Egyptian pilots have joined the Syrian army troops at the base. They are experts in flying the helicopters.
We can’t still say that the air operations are certainly started. But the presence of the pilots in Hama is definite. Egypt has a serious decision to cooperate with Syrian Army.

Israel to build 500 illegal settler units

Israel to build 500 illegal settler units

The Israeli anti-settlement NGO Ir Amim said that the Jerusalem municipality had decided to go ahead with the plan on Wednesday.

“This morning, the local planning and building committee made the decision to advance (with the plan)… for 500 units in Ramat Shlomo” neighborhood in the occupied Palestinian territories, Ir Amim said.

The project was approved by the Jerusalem Planning and Building Committee two years ago, but it was suspended amid global pressure.

The new illegal settler units will be built on a 76- acre lot between Ramat Shlomo and the Palestinian neighborhood of Shuafat after expropriating private Palestinian land in the area.

he development came a week after Israeli lawmakers gave their initial approval to a controversial bill that would grant legal status to settlement outposts illegally constructed on privately-owned Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank.

Earlier this month, Israeli Science Minister Ofir Akunis said that Tel Aviv should begin a new wave of settlement construction in the West Bank after the victory of US President-elect Donald Trump.

The remarks came after Jason Greenblatt, a top advisor to Trump on Israel, said, “It is certainly not Mr. Trump’s view that settlement activities should be condemned.”

Over half a million Israelis live in more than 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem al-Quds.

The Tel Aviv regime has defied international calls to stop its illegal construction activities, with its settlement expansion being among the main reasons behind the collapse of the last round of the so-called Middle East peace talks in 2014.

Vladimir Putin says Russia's borders 'do not end anywhere'

Vladimir Putin has said Russia’s borders “do not end anywhere” during a live televised awards ceremony for students in Moscow.

On stage, the Russian president asked a nine-year-old boy: “Where does Russia’s border end?” The child answered “at the Bering Strait with the United States”.

Mr Putin then gave his own answer, adding "it was a joke” to applause and laughter from the audience.

The phrase “Russia’s borders” became a top trend on Twitter within minutes. 

Ukraine’s ambassador to Finland responded on social media, writing “Russia’s border ends nowhere” alongside an image of a ruined log cabin.

The reviews for Donald Trump's 'Make America Great Again' bauble are truly wonderful

Picture: SCREENSHOT / DONALDJTRUMP.COM

President-elect Donald Trump is officially the Grinch Who Trolled Christmas.

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, the Donald decided to bring out his own Christmas ornament.

It's a little model of the infamous red cap, emblazoned with the insistently sickening 'Make America Great Again'. 

The 'red cap collectible' made of brass with a 14-karat-gold finish, is for sale on his websitefor around $150, (roughly two days of median household income in the state of Kentucky, which Trump won handsomely).   

Because he's an anti-elitist man of the people, hadn't you heard.

Although to be fair, he's not taking his presidential salary, so times are tough for the billionaire this Christmas.

According to CBS News, the Trump campaign announced the sale on Wednesday, saying that he "makes a point of proudly saying 'Merry Christmas' every chance he gets".

Yes, we remember from 2013:

It's also being sold on Amazon by 'Trump', although it's not clear as yet whether this is a legitimate product posting.

Either way, the internet has responded in absolutely outstanding fashion.

There's already around 3,500 reviews on the Amazon listing - they're political, they're scathing, and they're unbelievably hilarious.

I absolutely love it. White cloaks were sold out so i thought, this would be perfect to top my all white tree. My sister wife is getting ready to order a bunch of hat for stocking stuffers as we speak.

If only I could give this item a 6 star rating, to go with the 6 bankruptcies I will surely be filing to pay for this bitch. Excuse me, nasty woman.

It tried to put my nativity figures into an internment camp. Would not buy again.

The angel on top of my tree just hired a lawyer. 

Despite ordering a more reasonable ornament, this one arrived. [...] I hung it on my tree, but it is so yuge that it has totally unbalanced my whole tree. No matter where I hang it, the tree leans waaaay over to the far right.

Its small size makes it easy for tiny hands to handle. 

I think mine has a misprint on it...It says 'Make America Hate Again'. Maybe not a typo?

My pussy cat would not even play with it. It just didn't seem to grab her.

While its incessantly one-note 'White Christmas' can get tiresome, just wait and you'll be treated to other old-fashioned refrains, such as 'Jingoism Bells,' 'I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In (And Sent Them Back to Syria),' and, if you're VERY lucky, 'Silent Night (Since Kellyanne Took My Twitter Away).

It's great for everyone—and I mean everyone—except crying babies, Mexican rapists, Jews offended by Nazi propaganda, black people living in hell, women who aren't 10s, people who don't like being groped, the disabled, war heroes who got caught, all—I repeat, ALL—Muslims, and anyone who is a loser or hater.

And this, the winner...

After having advertisements shoved down my throat for what seemed like years, this ornament appeared on my door step. I decided to give it a chance and put in on our tree. The next day we had surprise carolers. They turned out to a KKKarolers and I had to shoo them away with a broom.

Then Ann Coulter showed up dressed as Santa asking for donations. I thought the money was for the Salvation Army. I had to shoo her away also as the money was going towards a new version of Mein Kampf she was working on. Needless to say, I was not very impressed with this item.

When I went to put it back in the package I noticed another ornament at the bottom. It was a bobble head of a white haired man with the name tag reading Mike. Just then a there was a knocking at my door.

It was Jason and Nicole from the local gay conversion summer camp. They asked me to come with them. I told them that I wasn't gay. I proceeded to tell them that if I was gay though then electro shock therapy wouldn't “cure” me.

After shooing them off my porch, I decided that this wasn't the right ornament for me, my family and definitely not my child and quickly sent it away in a time machine to the year 1902.

The internet came together to create something wonderful. It's a Christmas miracle.

American Nazis are so stupid they don't even know how to draw swastikas properly

Picture: LA TIMES/VIDEO SCREENGRAB

Donald Trump's campaign and election has allowed a virulent strain of US neo-Nazism to creep out of the shadows.

You could say that Trump's xenophobic rhetoric, endorsement by the Ku Klux Klan and Islamaphobic/anti-Semitic declaration have actually encouraged this mentality.

Certainly, the swastika, the ultimate Nazi symbol, has been appearing more frequently since his election.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Centre, there have been 60 acts of vadalism involving the swastika since the election. Fourteen have been seen in New York, home to around 1.1 million Jews.

There's just one problem though...

my favorite thing about modern american nazis is they're too fucking stupid to even draw a fucking swastika http://pic.twitter.com/Gi8RT3Y1Gg
