    Individual JWs and the org would not have an opinion on this or any other political issue "hot potatoe" or otherwise as they are commanded by their leaders to be politically neutral, not even voting. What and who the behind the scenes WT elite support, think and do behind closed doors is another thing and something we will never know. They recruited Jared Kushner to do a complimentary fluff piece endorsing them but then removed it later so go figure. Maybe it was part of the deal that came with buying the old WT HQ properties but strange behavior from "neutral people of God" considering he is Jewish and associated closely with Trump make of it what you will. They were also part of the UN as an NGO for ten years so go figure. Their old WT president wrote letters to Hitler so go figure.

    Oh and btw JWs are a cult and generally don't think and when they do it's only what their leaders tell them to think.

    That is very interesting, sparrowdown. I couldn't find the "complimentary fluff piece" (do you have a link for that?) but he did "close on a $345 million purchase of 85 Jay St. in the same Dumbo neighborhood as the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Watchtower Real Estate." https://nypost.com/2016/12/20/jared-kushner-closes-on-another-dumbo-heights-property/

    Considering that is the person who bought 666 Fifth Ave for $1.8 billion, I'd say all of his real estate deals have some strategic significance other than plain business deals. These people don't operate on the same level as the average person. They are nefarious in all aspects. Jesus warned us but He can't make people look. Well, He could but that wasn't His Will.

    2. Jesus said, “Let one who seeks not stop seeking until one finds. When one finds, one will be troubled. When one is troubled, one will marvel and will reign over all. ~ The Gospel of Thomas

    Without discussing my personal views on the modern state of Israel. ... J W's say that the Jewish nation was cast off by God after they rejected Jesus . The time of favour lasted until the time of Cornelious when all could join the Christian congregation. After Jerusalem fell in 70 a d , that was it and the Jews, according to the WTS , are no different to anybody else .......
