Jay Shapiro thinks that the unrest in Washington has important implications.

In his opinion, Israel and the US are the strongholds of democracy. Israel's fate is tied to that of the United States and unrest in the US has long term implications for the future of Israel.

Shapiro estimates that the riots of Trump supporters before the change of government in the White House and the very difficult division in the American public also have a connection to those sitting in Israel.
