    I agree with Trump on Israel

    It's the only real democracy in the ME and we gain nothing by playing nice with the Arabs.
    Station American troops in Israel, have combined military operations and stop pretending we are neutral brokers.

    Then again, I agreed with Hitler on his love of dogs.

    Before Erdogan came along, Turkey was a genuine functioning democracy.

    I think quite a few people agree with this decision. Several presidents prior had as well. I think it might be an difficult decision but long term the correct one. Wont come without major issues but Israel is our ally. That should mean something even though it rarely is anymore.

    I think you're wrong. We will pay a huge price for this happening at this time and in this way by this president.

    Yes, Israel is our ally, but Netanyahu is a jerk. A world-class jerk, too.

    Just put this in another thread but it fits here too.

    I also think people put religious or personal bias on the whole thing. Israel is the only democracy in the ME and a US ally. Plain and simple. If they are hit with rockets, we stand by them. Japan is also our ally and if North Korea or China threw rockets at them I would expect the US to stand with them as well. Somehow we come off with "yea but Israel...." Its a lame attempt to belittle our alliances.

    Most countries (including the US) have had jerks for their leaders. I would hope allies would stick together in good and bad times or alliances are meaningless.

    Yep - think I said something similar a week or two ago. I know - it was when Bibi gave his presentation on Iran.
