    Clarification you are watching the authorized force of Isreal defending themselves against people throwing rocks at them because they don't like the idea of a jewish state.

    And once again, left with no other recourse, you resort to personal attacks and insistence the topic of discussion is of no importance.

    I concur with the rest of your post, so I'm going to narrow my response down to this.

    I don't think it was a very good plan. I think ideally, Jerusalem should've been separated out as an international mandate. Governed solely by its own residents, policed and protected by blue helmets.

    I don't get why nobody attempted to make "United Nations" actually mean something as a political entity, with sovereignty, in places where nobody can agree what the best path forward is.

    There was no reason for anybody to believe either the Jewish State or the Arab State would ever agree on how to divide Jerusalem. It was a fool's errand.

    Now it is likely too late. There are too many Jews who will never accept any but Israeli rule with deep roots in "Palestine," including East Jerusalem. We can't kick those people out.

    Israel must become more than the Jewish State.

    The killing of dozens of unarmed protesters and wounding of many more by Israeli forces in Gaza, on the day President Trump moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, is an outrage that demands not just international condemnation, but action.

    I had never heard of this loon before. I saw him last night on CNN. This one was quite a odd choice for the opening prayer in Israel.

    This entire thread essentially constitutes half productive conversation, including with some folks who think there's a bigger issue than Jeffress, and Trump sympathizers who have bitched incessantly about the topic.

    Your stance so far isn't a good one on that scale. Not that you were ever here to engage in the former.

    Incidentally, this is the same crowd who would be overjoyed to see killings at our border by our guards, because they are deluded enough to believe this would make our national security stronger.
    I think you are on to something. Palestinians throw rocks, Israel shoots bullets. Yet somehow these deaths are not the fault of Israel. Israel builds a fence to separate the two people then shoots Palestinians for approaching the fence. Sounds barbaric to me.

    Mr. Dragonfly,

    You throw rocks at a guy with a gun, don't be surprised if he throws back lead.
