Israel, American Jewry and Trump’s GOP

“…For years, the Obama administration quietly encouraged the Europeans to fund these anti-semitic NGO’s and to ratchet up their anti-Israel positions. Doing so, the former administration believed, would coerce Israel to make concessions to the PLO.

But now, Trump and his advisers are delivering the opposite message. And, as the actions by Denmark, Norway and Switzerland show, the new message is beginning to be received.”

    While Trump has proven to be a reliable ally to Israel, something happened, whether during Obama’s or Bush’s term, that changed the country. After many years of being scorned by the “international community,” the Ugly Duckling contemplated its reflection in the water. Soon, the technology developed as a means for its population to earn a living came under big demand worldwide even as enemies looked more and more foolish calling for boycotts. Some of Israel’s formerly hostile neighbors, looking squarely at reality, began seeing Israel’s hold on the regional balance of power as a good thing. Even its women soldiers, while always appreciated for their honorable service, were soon seen in a new light thanks to YouTube and Instagram. They are now Israel’s leading goodwill ambassadors, at least on the internet. Netanyahu’s diplomacy now is to drive wedges into the hostile blocs that have beset Israel for so many years. His targets have included the UN, the EU, the Organization of African Unity, even the Arab League, and so far, he has been successful at it and has Trump on his side on this. He will soon be appearing at a meeting of those European countries defying the EU over taking in Muslims.

      I commented somewhere the other day about my admiration for Trump without mentioning Israel or his convert daughter.
      A former colleague, who is Jewish, called me a piece of trash.
      Honestly, it pissed me off so much I gave him both barrels.
      I can’t stand people who are so bound by their prejudices that they can’t see that they are hurting themselves.

    I am unhappy with trumps and the GOP’s conduct.
    Israel needs a Strong USA, from any point of view,
    Economically, millitarily, technologically and in science, the stronger the USA
    the better it’s-to it’s allies.

    When the Left gains Power in the USA or anywhere it’s immediately starts
    Replacing officials on any level it can influence, leaders, ceo’s, NGO’s,
    Teachers, professors, talking heads and cop’s.
    No mater how good a person does it’s job, if it worked for the other side
    It’s the enemy and there is no pardon.
    No mater how bad a leftist Aparatshik may be, they will place him and
    expect loyalty and help in filling lower ranks with leftists and
    support the cause, Trump and the GOP failed
    in this part of the job, just see what
    Antifa can do today without
    being shot by cops.
