Remarks by President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu at Yad Vashem…

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered remarks at Yad Vashem a holocaust memorial hall of remembrance.

[TRANSCRIPT] 1:27 P.M. IDT – PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Thank you, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Sara Netanyahu, Chairman Avner Shalev, and Rabbi Israel Meir Lau for hosting us for this moving wreath-laying ceremony.

We are here at Yad Vashem to honor the memory of six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.  Two-thirds of the Jews in Europe were sent to their deaths.  Words can never describe the bottomless depths of that evil, or the scope of the anguish and destruction.

It was history’s darkest hour.  Millions of innocent, wonderful and beautiful lives — men, women and children — were extinguished as part of a systematic attempt to eliminate the Jewish people.  It was the most savage crime against God and his children.  And it is our solemn duty to remember, to mourn, to grieve and to honor every single life that was so cruelly and viciously taken.

As Elie Wiesel said: “For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.”  These words should be carved into the conscience of humanity forever.  Only when we remember the families who were torn apart from everyone they loved, who suffered that terrible darkness and evil, who endured the unbearable horror of the Holocaust — only then can we prevent this agony from ever repeating.

This place, and this entire nation, are a testament to the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people — and the hope that light can shine the path beyond the darkness.  Through persecution, oppression, death, and destruction, the Jewish people have persevered.  They have thrived.  They’ve become so successful in so many places.  And they have enlightened the world.  The State of Israel is a strong and soaring monument to the solemn pledge we repeat and affirm:  Never again.

From the depths of the suffering, the Jewish people have built a mighty nation — and the Star of David waves proudly above this cherished land.

As long as we refuse to be silent in the face of evil, as long as we refuse to dim the light of truth in the midst of darkness, as long as we refuse to become bystanders to barbarity, then we know that goodness, peace and justice will ultimately prevail.

With sadness for the lives and dreams that were stolen from this Earth, with determination to always keep the memories of the victims alive, and with resolve to confront evil wherever it threatens, we ask God to give us the strength, wisdom and courage to chart the righteous path.

Thank you.  God bless the memory of the perished.  God bless the survivors.  God bless the Jewish people.  And God bless the State of Israel.  Thank you for having me.  Thank you.

END – 1:34 P.M. IDT

    57 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

    2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

    That is a fantastic and reassuring show of support for America’s greatest ally. We must never, ever forget the six million who died.

      Or the fact that evil people still walk this earth who think six million dead is not nearly enough:

      Or as Ted Turner, founder of CNN and the UN Foundation bluntly put it during an interview with Audubon magazine.
      “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Source: The book You Don’t Say, by Fred Gielow, 1999, page 189.

      Translation: The elite do not need more that 250-300 million serfs/slaves to support them. More than that is dangerous and a waste of resources.

    What an incredible speech by such an incredible man! PM Netanyahu, every single Israeli in attendance and throughout the world said “Thank You” to God for delivering this gift. For those that voted for the despicable HRC, they better say as many prayers as humanely possible to have God forgive them. These same morons would have seen their beloved country blown off the face of the Earth had she won.

    Iran is ABSOLUTELY scared out of their minds! Many countries in the ME and Israel have been united by one man to make sure that Iran never ever sees the day that they have a nuclear weapon. That POS Barry from Hawaii tried to do the deed for the Devil.

    They also realize that Muslim nations have had enough and will work with our Lion to destroy the terrorist both on the battlefield as well as in the cyber world and financially. How many realized the following that was announced at the end of the Arab Summit:

    Trump & 55 Muslim-majority states sign pact pledging 34,000 troops to fight ISIS in Iraq & Syria.

    https://www.rt.com/news/389152-trump-muslim-leaders-terrorism/

    From the article linked above:

    Described as the Riyadh Declaration, the document was signed following US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Saudi capital for a summit that brought in Islamic representatives from 55 countries, and vowed “to combat terrorism in all its forms, address its intellectual roots, dry up its sources of funding and to take all necessary measures to prevent and combat terrorist crimes in close cooperation among their states.”

    The exact membership of what the communique called the Middle East Strategic Alliance will be decided next year, but putative members have committed to assembling “a reserve force of 34,000 troops to support operations against terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria when needed.”

    Eventually NK will be resolved. The Chinese are stepping up and are ready to implement even more sanctions.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/chinas-imports-north-korea-sink-below-100-million-031935617.html

    From the article linked above:

    BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s imports of North Korean goods in April fell below $100 million to the lowest in nearly three years, data showed on Tuesday, after China stopped buying coal from the isolated country and as calls mount for further economic sanctions.

    Neighboring China is North Korea’s biggest trade partner, and the data indicates that China’s halt of North Korean coal imports on Feb. 26 is having an impact and curbing Pyongyang’s ability to raise hard currency through exports.

    ISIS is facing destruction throughout SE Asia, ME and Africa. Sooner rather than later they will cease to no longer exist. Syria will be resolved in the very near future. Libya will have a leader in place in the mold of President al-Sissi as Egypt continues to push the agenda their.

    When all that is resolved, the force of the US as well as the 55 Arab nations, Israel and others will turn towards Iran. Our President will make sure of it well in advance of January 2025!

    Bibi upstaged God Emperor Trump’s speech with one that was even better!

    I’m a religious person so none of this comes as a surprise to me, but it’s hard for me to believe that some don’t see the incredible power of the ‘holy land’. Even if you’re not religious, you can’t deny that something is afoot over there, there is something epic going on just in the earth of that land.

    Seeing the juxtoposition of the Palestinian authority, and the Jewish authority, filmed on the same day, tells another tale. Liberals would have you believe Jews flourish because of the support they get from us and the Palestinians flounder because they don’t get the support, but I don’t believe that’s the whole story. The Jews seem to be a blessed people and the Palestinians seem to be a cursed people, to my eyes at least. The Jews have been through incredible tragedies and are stronger than ever. They’ve overcome more than the Palestinians have ever had to.

    “The Jews seem to be a blessed people and the Palestinians seem to be a cursed people”

    Straight from the Jews Hebrew Scriptures (Christian Old Testament).

    Genesis 12:3

    I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
    and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.

    Blessing and curses were detailed to the Hebrews before entering the Holy Land in Deuteronomy 27-28.

    The Jews are God’s Chosen People. The rest are adopted and grafted in.

    I get far, far away from anyone who curses a Jew.
