    Donald Trump is proving to be the most pro-Israeli president in American history, and may God bless him for it. Two days ago, through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, he declared that Israeli settlements in the West Bank are not illegal. Most Israelis are happy and grateful for this great announcement and long-overdue policy shift.

    This reverses a decades-long wrong-headed policy of viewing the settlements as illegal. Trump is absolutely right: those settlements are not illegal:

    All Trump has done is put any sort of Palestinian peace process forever out of reach. Nothing major.

    I'm a fan of Pres.Trump and will vote for him again in 2020

    But I strongly disagree with his support for the terrorist state of Israel.

    Pres.Trump, like all American presidents for the last 100 years, must pledge unwavering allegiance to the rogue state of Israel, and kowtow to the AIPAC lobby in order to get elected and have a change to be reelected 4 years later.

    Although in my opinion, Pres.Trump has taken the mandatory requirement to support to apartheid state of Israel and its psychopath leader Nuttyyahoo way too far. ... :cool:

    Which is a terrible friggin' shame. Because the Palestinians have been so into peace for 60 years.

    really? How so? When Trump leaves office and a Democrat takes his place it’ll be back to the good old days of blaming the Jews for living. And then what? How was the “Palestinian peace process” going before Trump?

    The settlements were never illegal; that lie was UN propaganda.

    Obama has been out of office for nearly 3 years, stop mentioning his support for Iran.

    Yikes! "Rogue regime"? Israel is a democratic nation that has a robust judiciary, a vibrant free press, universal healthcare, and quality education for her citizens. Compare Israel with the cesspool known as Gaza, where the Palestinians have been running things for years.
