It’s just to me appalling that we have no vision at all,...
Regardless of ones opinion of a Trump, this statement clearly conflicts with reality. Obviously Trump has a vision in this matter. It just isnt one Mitchell approves of.
By “vision” they mean “get the Israeli’s out of Israel”.
Most of Europe views Israel as a colony, and hence a “bad thing.” That is the disconnect. Trump moving the embassy to Jerusalem acknowledges that the US considers Jerusalem as part of Israel. Most of the EU views it as illegally occupied territory.
No I am not a fan of using troops as police. I think Israel is hurting themselves in their response to this issue. However, it is not my circus so I will happily assume they (Israel) has more facts than I do and is acting appropriately.
