The Daughters of Zion
On Monday morning, the entire media, including conservative outlets, were abuzz with Meryl Streep's speech bashing Trump. Being a certified bastard, I wasn't impressed that a top grade actress could deliver an emotional speech. However, what did amaze me was that although Streep's photo was everywhere, the murdered Israeli cadets in Jerusalem had either moved to the bottom of the page, or even off of it.
Three of the four murdered soldiers were young women. The Palestinian reaction was to hand out sweets, and take pride in the attack. While Obama helped legitimize the attack through the UN vote and Kerry's speech, Trump has declared that he will move the embassy to Jerusalem. If he does that, it would be a memorial to those murdered girls.
