Think about this for a moment. [View all]

I have watched the protests blaming all Israelis for the actions of their government. I have read, here and elsewhere. where people say they will no longer support the people of Israel for the actions of their leader. Same point with the Palestinian people.

Imagine for a moment, a president trump in office again, would you want to be lumped in as a whole for his actions. Hell no!

Think about that for a moment and let it sink in.
