        It was a disgusting spectacle last week in Jerusalem, where Israeli jets were killing Palestinian protesters even as Trump-supporting, “end times” so-called Christian pastors were “celebrating” the move of the U.S. Embassy to that contested city.
        No previous responsible president would ever make that decision, because they knew it would cause violence and death. At last count, more than 60 Palestinians were killed by Israel. It was said that you could hear the jets in the air as the crazy preachers spoke.
