Whether the changes made in States will be enough remains to be seen, but Democracy in America is fragile, and not to be messed around by someone who calls the American people 'scum' and 'vermin', calls its women 'skanks', as DJT has done.
    Completely agree,and Donald Trump despicable and disgusting comments shows how unhinged,unfit and dangerous he is,and should never be allowed to step foot in the White House again.

    If any regular citizen of the United States said cruel,despicable,disgusting comments and making threats against prosecutors,federal judges and their staffs,and intimidating witnesses from corporating like Donald Trump has said and done,they would have been arrested by the FBI and put in a federal prison. IMHO Federal Prosecutors,Judges and District Attorneys needs to send a very strong message that nobody is above the law,by putting him in prison during the trial.

    Agreed!
    Plenty of reasons for Blacks, Hispanics, and Jewish Americans to go Independent or another party outside of the Republican and Democrat.
    There's already a large constituent of Republican Hispanics (hence why Texas has been hard to flip) and now with a lot of anti-semitism brewing within the Democrat party, what incentive is there for Jewish Americans to continue to vote Democrat?

    It was the Democrat Party's President, LBJ who took sides with Israel against the Arabs in 1967, a strategic alliance that has not changed since then. It was a Democrat -Jimmy Carter- who presided over the Peace Treaty between Egypt and Israel in 1979, and another, Clinton who brought Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat to the table to sign the 1993 Treaty. I don't know if the membership of the Party has gone rogue, but I doubt it, and anyway the behaviour of Netanyahu over the last few years has caused a lot of dissent among American Jews, many of who are Liberal where Netanyahu is a Nationalist or even a Fascist if you consider some of his policies, even if designed to win the lunatic fringes, but then there was a time when Likud was a party of terrorists and lunatics.

    And where do American Jews stand on social policy ?--probably closer to the DP on issues like climate change and abortion, than the GOP.

    The more pertinent question is, why would any Black American vote for a nauseating Racist like Donald Trump? And when he calls Americans 'Vermin', having previously described his 'Fellow Americans' as 'scum', and Hillary Clinton as a 'skank' -why would any American vote for this pathetic, whining loser?

    Number of Israelis murdered by Hamas, 1,200.

    Palestinians murdered by Christians protected by the IDF in Sabra and Chatila camps in Lebanon in 1982, 3,500.

    If the word used for the first is 'Holocaust' what word describes the second?

    Question Re: Thought for the Day

    Are the Pro-Palestine protests going to get worse - or have they peaked? 🤔💭

    And your evidence for this is what? Or are you simply equating concern for the rights and lives of Palestinians with anti-Semitism?

    This man is clearly nuts, but other than asking how he was invited to speak at a rally for Israel, the real question is how representative of American Christian is he? Not least because one reads in other places that church attendances are in decline, and more Americans are secular than before -perhaps people hear they are in the 'end times' and about to die, and think -yes I like the sound of eternal life, but maybe later?
