Israel- ally who we should support But regarding Israel-Palestine conflict, a two-state option is what I favor

I would like to thank all of you guys for your support of me, I was humbled by it. I received 78% from the Democrats, 79% from the Republicans, 67% from the Independents, and 77% from the Libertarians. I'd like them to be at 100% though lol

I want to be considered for Secretary of State.
As Secretary of State, I will use a policy that is a cross between Dollar Diplomacy and Big Stick Diplomacy that will use economics and trade as a primary platform for diplomatic relations

I believe that we should help protect the Israelis from the Palestinians, for they are our main ally in the Middle East. We also should protect South Korea if North Korea feels the need to invade.

In world affairs, the United States should only be concerned with protecting ourselves, our direct interests, and supporting our allies. I support the United States's involvement in the United Nations.

Yes, I personally believe the history of Israel has been foretold. From beginning to end. But, this thread really isn't the place for a long religious discussion. I support Israel's right to exist and prefer a SOS who supports that as well.

I say again don't lump the Palestinians in with the other "they's". So your "600 times more land" argument is irrelevant. They very much could be content with it. But that doesn't mean that you oppress that many people out of fear.

Israel? You want to get me started on that lovely land of the Bible?

Let me put it this way. I believe we should support Israel. Do we need to make them our sole focus? Nah. There's also the fact that the two of us tend to get along pretty well…

But while we're talking about their neighbors, I may as well speak. I think they've done fine. It's difficult to stand on your own ground…
