  • The Hamas Charter asks for the killing of Jews – Trump would be neutral. Saying whose fault it is does not help, he says.

    Well, this is the whole problem. You cannot be “neutral” when you have one side being a totalitarian theocracy with its Charter calling for the killing of Jews and the other side being a democracy where you have all the minority rights protected. Would Trump be neutral in judging the conflict between ISIS and the US?

    As a strong supporter of Israel who understands that the anti-Israel bias that surrounds the Jewish is promulgated and promoted by anti-Semites who spread false information about the Jewish state, I find your headline to be very misleading. In his MSNBC interview, Trump makes it very clear that he would not try to force Israel into making dangerous concessions for a Pyrrhic peace. Furthermore, his long term financial support of Israel speaks volumes for his affirmative feelings for it.

    So much for Algemeiner’s Right Wing writers trying to persuade the Jewish Community to vote Republican

    I’d laugh but it is sad and pathetic

    I am disappointed in Trump.

    Being ‘neutral’ about Israel, is in some ways the opposite of being an ally of Israel.

    Trump is probably Pro-Jewish, a Judeophile, as his brother and daughter have ties with Jews.

    But Trump seems to fail to understand the ethnic aspect of Jews, as a living nation.

    The State of Israel is a central identity of Jews today.

    Trump WILL BE the BEST President for Jobs, Israel and the USA in history. The rest are war mongers and fakes, Trump tells it like it is.

  • There’s nothing wrong with being neutral and evenhanded. There’s truth in what he says. If one side perceives you as being biased toward the other side, it’s all over.

    The problem is ideologues who listen primarily to one side even if that side is less credible than the other. For example, if a bomb explodes in Gaza and injures people, do you listen only to the Gaza version of the story and assume Israel did it, or do you listen to all sides and weigh the evidence in an evenhanded way, possibly reaching the conclusion that it was a “work accident” by terrorists?

    A leader needs to be like a judge who views both parties with suspicion, thereby arriving at the truth.

    neutral? between good and evil trump is neutral.

    despite a lot of good in him, no decent person can support him for president. I, personally, wouldn’t support him for the presidency of the local chamber of commerce.

    the man is a moral imbecile. neutral. neutral? in one of the most consequential battles of our time, trump is neutral. awol.

    well, we can’t be neutral about trump.
