    Taiwanese support for Israel exceeds Taiwanese support for Palestine by more than 2:1.

      I’m wondering how much of that is just due to misinformation. You have to account for the widespread Zionist influence campaign that’s been going on for decades and that has cost millions.

      From Zionists traveling abroad, to Zionists flying people in. A family member got flown in some years ago and ever since they’ve been a propaganda machine in them selves.

      It doesn’t matter how many times I tell them that their talking points are factually wrong and framed in a manipulative way, because they themselves don’t understand it.

      Brainwashing, when done right, sets it claws into the human brain something fierce. This is more apparent in some countries than others.

        This is likely more of a geopolitical play.

        Taiwan is not really in position to stick to any sort of principles. Just got to survive and Israel is US’s greatest ally plus Israel has tech Taiwan likely looking to acquire.

        Ps. Remember USS Liberty!

      Good. I stand with Israel and Taiwan. I hope both will be free from having to defend themselves all the time.
