‘I won’t call terrorists monsters, they would like that name. I will call them losers, because that’s what they are,’ Trump says on final day of Middle East trip.
Donald Trump’s speech condemned the “evil losers” behind the Manchester terror attack on Tuesday alongside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem, during the final day of his historic visit to the Middle East. “I won’t call terrorists monsters, they would like that name. I will call them losers, because that’s what they are.” “The terrorists must be driven out of our society forever and innocent lives must be protected,” Trump added.

As President of the United States, on behalf of the People of the United States, I would like to begin by offering my prayers to the people of Manchester in The United Kingdom. I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack, and to the many killed and the families of the victims. We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom.
So many young, beautiful innocent people – living and enjoying their lives – murdered by evil losers in life. I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. I will call them losers from now on – because that is what they are – losers.
This is what I’ve spent these last few days talking about during my trip oversees – our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed, we cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent citizens.
The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comfort, must be driven out from our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and innocent life must be protected. All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and peace.
I want to offer my deep appreciation to the Palestinians and President Abbas for hosting me today. It is an honor to join you in Bethlehem – a city that is precious to people around the world.
As I discussed with President Abbas in Washington earlier this month, I am committed to trying to achieve a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians and I intend to do everything I can to help them achieve that goal.
President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward this goal in good faith. And Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised the same.
I look forward to working with these leaders toward lasting peace.
I also look forward to working with President Abbas on other important matters, such as unlocking the potential of the Palestinian economy and building on our very positive counter-terrorism efforts.
Several days ago in Saudi Arabia, I met with the leaders of Muslim and Arab nations across the region. I called on them to join in a partnership to drive terrorism from their midst once and for all. It was a deeply productive meeting, and many leaders agreed to cooperate with us on this vital goal.
I was gratified that President Abbas joined the summit and committed to taking firm but necessary steps to fight terrorism and confront its hateful ideology.
Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded or rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single, unified voice.
Peace is a choice we must make each day – and the United States is here to help make that dream possible for young Jewish, Christian and Muslim children across the region. In so doing, we will all enjoy a safer and brighter future.
In this spirit of hope, we come to Bethlehem, asking God for a more peaceful, safe and more tolerant world for all.
I am truly hopeful that America can help Israelis and Palestinians forge peace, and bring new hope to the region and its people.
Flüchtlinge warten in Tripolis auf ihr Schiff Richtung Europa Quelle: AFP/Getty Images
Die Zahl der nach Europa strebenden Flüchtlinge hat in den Staaten südlich und östlich des Mittelmeers seit Jahresbeginn deutlich zugenommen. Das belege ein als „vertraulich“ eingestuftes Papier („VS-NfD“) der deutschen Sicherheitsbehörden, berichtet die „Bild“-Zeitung, der das Papier vorliegt.
Demnach warten in den Staaten Nordafrikas, in Jordanien und der Türkei bis zu 6,6 Millionen Flüchtlinge auf eine Weiterreise (Stand: Ende April 2017). Ende Januar waren es erst 5,95 Millionen, was einem Anstieg bis Ende April um knapp zwölf Prozent entspricht.
Auf der Balkanroute stecken nach Informationen der Zeitung aus Sicherheitskreisen 79.000 Flüchtlinge fest (Januar 2017: 78.000), davon allein 62.500 in Griechenland. Italien ist von den Bootsanlandungen der Flüchtlinge auf der Mittelmeerroute am stärksten betroffen.
Bis Ende April 2017 sind dort rund 37.300 Flüchtlinge angekommen (2015: 181.500). Dem Zeitungsbericht zufolge stammen 55 Prozent aus Nigeria, Bangladesch, Guinea, der Elfenbeinküste und Gambia.
CDU will mit Bekämpfung der Fluchtursachen Wahlkampf machen
Die CDU will nach „Bild“-Informationen als Reaktion auf die Entwicklung mit der Bekämpfung der Fluchtursachen Wahlkampf machen. Im Entwurf des sicherheitspolitischen Teils des Wahlprogramms zur Bundestagswahl 2017 (Titel: „Sicher und frei leben in Deutschland“) stehe: Die Partei wolle mehr Deals „nach Vorbild des Türkei-Abkommens“ vereinbaren – vor allem mit Nordafrika.
Menschen, die „aus Booten der Schlepper vor dem Ertrinken gerettet werden“, sollten zurück an die Küste gebracht und dort in Absprache mit den Ländern versorgt werden.

Authorities knew about plans for the radical Islamic terror attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, UK that targeted young girls and teenagers, according to reports.
British intelligence and law enforcement were aware of plans to kill as many people as possible at the O2 Arena in Manchester, but rather than apprehend the terrorist, they let him kill 19 people, and the death toll may yet rise.
Britain’s open borders have provided the elite with the useful terrorists necessary to do their dirty work for them. British intelligence and law enforcement ‘allowed’ this attack to happen in order to justify cracking down on the innocent population even further, taking away more and more civil liberties, until we are living in a police state.
The terrified public will allow this to happen. They will choose “safety” over liberty.
The fact is, the ISIS death cult is funded and supported by the United States and its western allies. This is not a wild conspiracy theory. It is admitted by Democrat and Republican members of Congress in the United States.
Just as ISIS cause death and destruction in Syria, Iraq and Libya on the US and European dime, they also cause chaos in large European cities. This is all part of the plan to destabilize Europe and take away civil liberties, privacy and the right to a decent life.
The Manchester attack has eery similarities to the Paris attacks of November 2015. Paris and Manchester are both dominoes that fell, as orchestrated by the New World Order, as part of a masterplan that aims to destroy Europe as we know it.
ISIS claimed responsibility immediately after the attack, just as they did after the Paris attacks, warning that it is “just the beginning.”
Less than two weeks after RT posted footage of crisis actors preparing for a terrorist attack in Manchester, a radical Islamic terrorist carried out a bloody attack on young girls, and it was allowed to happen.
Terrorists are walking freely into our countries and being allowed to perform barbaric acts that terrorize good, law-abiding citizens. In some cases law enforcement and intelligence actually assist the terrorists.
Sources are claiming the FA Cup final next weekend in London is the next target in a wave of Islamic terror that is set to get worse. First young girls, next football fans.
Crisis and catastrophe will be the order of the day, as the elites march us towards a police state and a New World Order. While the terrorists are allowed to roam free, we will be the ones imprisoned.

Kuwaiti customs seized 178 pills wrapped around a homing pigeon.
The department’s employees tracked a homing pigeon that was coming from Iraq and finally caught it above a building near the customs’ department, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai reported.
Homing pigeons were used in the past to carry messages as messenger pigeons and they crossed a distance of approximately 100 miles.
At first they only delivered messages but after training, man taught them how to deliver messages back and forth more than once a day.
