Response to Proud liberal 80 (Original post)

Wed May 9, 2018, 11:05 PM

1. I was just there last week.

It was my first visit.
Very nice place, and very friendly. But, they seem just as short-sighted as Americans. All in for Netanyahu and Trump. They think Trump is Bibi's poodle, forgetting that Trump is Putin's poodle first.
They don't really seem to have a plan for the future, except that by some miracle the Palestinians will just disappear from the face of the earth. No need to create a separate Palestinian state, and certainly no need to integrate Palestinians into Israeli society.
It's a Jewish state without being a theocracy, and it really would be a shame to see it compromised, but I don't see how their current status-quo is sustainable.
Bibi is an ass for pushing Trump to get out of the Iran deal. But, I have no problem with their defense against Iran's presence in Syria.
