As Israel Mourns the loss of Shimon Perez, I remember that once we were almost at the gates of peace in the Middle East, under the grand leadership of Bill Clinton and Yitzac Rabin. Sadly just one week later one person shattered that hope when Rabin was assassinated. I watched Bill Clinton give the Eulogy which was one of the greatest and saddest speeches I ever heard.
I've put the transcript here - I highly doubt Mr Trump would be up to the task of such diplomacy.

Its been a long time since I posted here and I want to add that I am not American so although I have an opinion it won't count, but awareness is Key

I finally found a Trump supporter -- this morning when I went to buy coffee. (I noticed a Trump bumper sticker on his car.)
“Hi,” I said. “Noticed your Trump bumper sticker.”
“Yup,” he said, a bit defensively.
“I hope you don’t mind my asking, but I’m curious. Why are you supporting him?”
“I know he’s a little bit much,” said the Trump supporter. “But he’s a successful businessman. And we need a successful businessman as president.”
“How do you know he’s a successful businessman?” I asked.
“Because he’s made a fortune.”
“Has he really?” I asked.
“Of course. Forbes magazine says he’s worth four and a half billion.”
“That doesn’t mean he’s been a success,” I said.
“In my book it does,” said the Trump supporter.
“You know, in 1976, when Trump was just starting his career, he said he was worth about $200 million,” I said. “Most of that was from his father.”
“That just proves my point,” said the Trump supporter. “He turned that $200 million into four and a half billion. Brilliant man."
“But if he had just put that $200 million into an index fund and reinvested the dividends, he’d be worth twelve billion today,” I said.
The Trump supporter went silent.
"And he got about $850 million in tax subsidies, just in New York alone," I said.
More silence.
"He's not a businessman," I said. "He's a con man. "Hope you enjoy your coffee."

So about 6 months ago I turned G+ notifications off my phone because it was bugging me with endless pings of useless drivel. I just came back to G+ today, looked down my feed for a bit, found the same stuff that's in my facebook feed and wonder why I bothered.

Julie your leader is an idiot, get rid of him, if you can't do it for yourself, the good of the party and Australia, do it for the chance to save these guys.
