“I would recommend freedom, I would recommend a world that is the exact opposite of what Trump and Netanyahu are driving us into” This woman speaks eloquently and powerfully. Christian influenced Western governments generally support Israel. Apparently, we are the ‘goodies’ and the Palestinians are the ‘baddies’.
