Finally, a president with a backbone! After the eight long years we spent with a spineless jellyfish in office, Trump is a breath of fresh air!
President Donald Trump has spoken out about Israel firing rockets into Gaza, which was done in defense of their citizens. The country is constantly under attack, however, the mainstream media only seems to report when Israel defends herself. Just since Friday, there have been MORE than 650 missiles launched into Israel from terrorist groups, which killed and injured dozens of Israelis.
“Once again, Israel faces a barrage of deadly rocket attacks by terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad,” the president tweeted on Sunday, “We support Israel 100% in its defense of its citizens.”
He also addressed Palestinians: “To the Gazan people — these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery,” Trump said, “END the violence and work towards peace — it can happen!”

A Palestinian sniper on Friday wounded two Israeli soldiers, and Gaza terrorists fired rockets, shells and mortars toward Israeli cities and towns.
Israel responded with a massive bombardment of terror targets in Gaza, including a cross-border underground tunnel, a subterranean rocket factory, a six-story building used by Hamas intelligence, as well as the private homes of dozens of terror commanders — some of which were being used as weapons caches, the army said.
Israel also killed a Hamas commander said to be the Strip’s main liaison with Iran in what was the first targeted killing since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, the military stated.
The death toll in Gaza reached 31, according to numbers by the Gaza health ministry, with many being claimed as operatives of Hamas or the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad. At least 11 were confirmed terrorists.
Vice President Mike Pence joins alongside Trump in standing with Israel. He tweeted, “We strongly condemn the attacks in Gaza by Hamas terrorists. Israel has the absolute right to defend itself & the U.S. stands by our great ally Israel.”
Considering the fact that Israel is one of our greatest allies, I would be concerned if our president and vice president were not standing with them.
How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?
The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.

Makes you wonder if she is elected official for America or for Palestine.
