NSC Purge: McMaster ‘Deeply Hostile to Israel and to Trump’

Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick wrote Wednesday evening that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is purging pro-Israel staff from the National Security Council (NSC), turning the administration against President Donald Trump’s policies.

    Here is what I contributed to Breitbart’s comments section.

    I don’t know if this will reach the White House and get somebody’s attention there, but here are ten reasons why the U.S. should cultivate a close relationship with Israel.
    1. Both countries share the same Bible-based values of right and wrong, good and evil, justice and freedom.
    2. Israel has had the most experience in countering jihad-based terrorism. While not foolproof, Israel has had fewer homicides from all sources this year than the city of Chicago, which has no more than one-third of Israel’s population.
    3. Israel is a member in good standing of the nuclear club.
    4. Israel is considered one of the top five countries in cyber warfare capabilities, and perhaps number one in cyber defenses.
    5. Israel’s research and development program for military technologies rivals the Pentagon’s.
    6. Israel is the world’s largest exporter of aerial drones.
    7. Israel deploys fleets of drone warships and robotic ground vehicles.
    8. Israel’s intelligence services are considered among the best in the world.
    9. Israelis have repeatedly shown a willingness to fight for their country.
    10. Israelis have been ardently pro-American ever since independence, even when their love has gone unrequited.

    If McMaster is too bigoted to grasp these simple truths, then Trump should thank him for his many years of service and send him into honorable retirement.

    McMaster is an Islamophile.

    You can tell he was a bad choice by all the praise he received from #NeverTrump cucks like Ben Shapiro.

    They destroyed Flynn for a reason.

      That has been my take from the start about getting rid of Flynn. Having a national security advisor who is in bed with the enemy does not bode well for the country itself. The anti-Israel part is on top of that.

      So how do you reconcile Flynn being in bed with Erdogan! I liked Flynn…until I found out about that…

      • Alain

        Unaware of that. What is your source?

    Very strange that this ‘leak’ came out today, just ahead of Trump’s West Virginia rally tonight where the governor of WV is expected to announce his change of party allegiance from Dem to Republican.
    Every leak has a purpose and is leaked as a distraction. However, always nothing-burgers.
