I know it's not an easy subject and there is a lot of nuance. They dont talk about this on Fox and Friends. But if we were to just cut off Palestine and allow Russia to waltz in and support the extremists how do you think that would work out? Would it make America and Israel safer?

Or do you think it might be more in our interests to at least do what we can to support the moderates in Palestine while keeping the extremists as a minority? This isn't a pretty option either, but the alternatives are worse.
