I fear that Biden will get the nomination.

Mayor Pete and Kamala Harris will have another chance.

Bernie won't.

Who is your ideal pick?

Warts and all there is no denying that Israel stands alone in that cauldron called the Middle East.  I remember when Pres. Ronald Reagan warned Israel to clean up its act or our relationship might end.  That'll never happen.  For all kinds of reasons.

I can't disagree but Mr. Netanyahu must go.  He refuses to acknowledge that Palestinians even exists.

I am in total agreement with you, the law takes its time slowly so he clings to power tenaciously but he will go

The policies of Netatanyu towards the Palestinians actually stem from their own intransigence to move in any direction allied with their own leaders who have long ago lost their mandate to lead

What leaders? You've forced puppets on them. Husseini, Arafat and Abbass.

When they did choose their own leader, you forced him to live in a hole.

In any case America does not have to get involved in those internal/external issues.  That's what the UN was ostensibly for.

The UN was FDR's idea, he wanted to ban the kind of things that Hitler had been doing, chiefly over-running borders.

Truman had no such qualms - forced through the creation of Israel (blackmailing UN delegates) and proceeded to treat Korea worse than Hitler and Stalin had done in sequence.
