Trump's Israel Policy

Naturally, no one is covering the story. For all the blazing headlines about John Bolton’s new book, no one has had anything to say about Bolton's revelations of Trump’s policy on Israel. You see, whereas the Obama administration decided to fortify Iran, to fund Hamas and Hezbollah, and to sign a nuclear deal that would release Iran from international sanctions while allowing them to develop a nuclear weapon it could drop on Tel Aviv, President Trump was wholeheartedly pro-Israel.

Naturally, the story is being buried, lest American Jews gain a flicker of awareness of what they voted for in 2008 and 2012.

Now, Zero Hedge reports that Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that if he chose to take out Iranian nuclear sites, America would back him. Imagine that weak sisters of the Obama administration, from the president himself to John Kerry to Susan Rice, making such a statement:

Among the new revelations and interesting tidbits found in John Bolton's now leaked pre-published edition of “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” is that President Trump was said to be prepared to endorse an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran's nuclear sites.

In a section which describes the "elusive search" for an Arab-Israeli peace deal, Bolton writes that Trump told him at a moment of increased Israeli concerns over Iran's nuclear development

"You tell Bibi that if he uses force, I will back him. I told him that, but you tell him again."

And also:

In the section, which comes early in the book, Bolton reveals the following conversation with the president at the White House

“On Iran, I urged that he press ahead to withdraw from the nuclear agreement and explained why the use of force against Iran’s nuclear program might be the only lasting solution. ‘You tell Bibi [Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] that if he uses force, I will back him. I told him that, but you tell him again,’ Trump said, unprompted by me.” 

More recently Netanyahu has also claimed a 'green light' from the US administration to annex parts of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley.

You see, Trump is siding with Israel in the Middle East. No wonder they hate him. No wonder they think he is a threat to everything they hold sacred.

Think about it.

The US does not publicly rule out a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli problem by creating two states, but in fact Washington’s approach precludes this. The fact that the Trump administration recognized the settlements in the West Bank and its decision to transfer the country's embassy to Jerusalem has already demonstrated that the United States in its plan for settlement was on the side of Israel.

I've have so thought. GO, Mr. Trump! DO IT.
