Muslim cleric outraged at Donald Trump’s plan to solve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis by moving all the Palestinians to Puerto Rico
Keep in mind that this is a satire, but true to form, Muslims, once again, prove that they have no sense of humor, especially about their own miserable selves.
Times of Israel The parody news site The Mideast Beast reported on a fake “controversial peace proposal” by the colorful Trump to “give the US island territory of Puerto Rico to the Palestinians as compensation for surrendering to Israel.”
In an article titled “Donald Trump: Move the Palestinians to Puerto Rico,” the made-up plan is described thus: “the US would fund the relocation of all four or so million Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the Caribbean archipelago, and offer them ‘free housing, job training and a lifetime supply of deodorant.’”
It mocks Trump’s comments against Latino immigrants: “Unlike native Puerto Ricans, however, the so-called ‘Puertostinians’ would not be able to relocate to the US proper if they don’t like their new homeland: ‘We’re overrun by Mexican criminals as it is.’”
And in one paragraph, Trump heralds Americans’ stereotypes of Muslims: “‘There’s a fortune to be made by fulfilling people’s jihadist sex fantasies on a Disney-scale,’ he said, outlining some of the main attractions of ‘Trump Gaza’: a topless ‘72 Virgins Casino,’ ‘Safari-style’ tours to mock refugee and jihadist training camps, ‘Shoot Your Own Rocket’ and ‘Dig Your Own Tunnel’ workshops, ‘Catch a Zionist’ competitions, ‘Torture a POW’ sessions, as well as underground ‘Abu Ghraib-themed’ BDSM parties. ‘Let the Puertostinians both preserve and profit from their native culture,’ Trump said.”
However, it is well-known that Trump is a strong supporter of Israel which likely triggered the angry response (below video) from the Muslim cleric.
In response, a visibly angry Palestinian cleric, Issam Amira, who the MEMRI research center identified with Hizb ut-Tahrir, devoted a Friday sermon earlier this month to slamming the plan.
