...the elites to do something like that.

Dr. Paul would not have had an easy job either if he became President; but I think it would have been night and day if you contrasted the spirit of reconciliation and Love (i.e. the Golden Rule) that he would have exuded towards other nations and the bristly, warmongering stance of Netanyahu. There is a different spirit there with the latter, and I do not trust it.

Regarding the Arab Spring, google any of the countries where it has occurred, along with 'Christian persecution'. You'll see headlines about increased tensions and killings and worries over security at Easter, etc., etc. since the fall of the previous governments.
