    Can anyone tell me where the fifty billion dollars will come from?

    It makes no sense to me to borrow money to give it away.

    I saw a video of a buck that got its antlers caught in a thicket. It would have died there, but for some outdoorsmen who were able to free it. The deer fought them angrily while they were cutting it loose.

    The Palestinians remind me of that buck.

    Arabs & Muslims live peacefully in Israel, have voting rights, have jobs, are educated, and are citizens. Meanwhile, not a single Jew could possibly live in Palestinian territory or they would be killed.

    Israel wants peace with its neighbors and has traded land for peace during past efforts, only to have Palestinians and other Muslim nations continue to press for Israel's complete destruction.

    Israel endures thousands of missiles launched into its nation every year, exercising great restraint in its response. Would the US or any other nation tolerate thousands of missiles launched into its nation, killing citizens and destroying property, and not respond militarily to overthrow those launching missiles? Of course not. And yet their are politicians who criticize Israel when it responds to attacks.

    The Palestinian leadership has utterly failed its people. They could be living in peace, thriving, building an economy. Instead, they allow terrorists to teach hate, and recruit their children to fight Israel.

    It is good if Trump can bypass Palestinian and terrorist leaders, help build up an economy, and lead out for peace.
