Gen. McMaster Sparked a Row With the Israeli Delegation at a White House Meeting on Hezbollah

During the week of August 27, an Israeli delegation met with members of the National Security Council (NSC) at the White House to discuss the current threat to Israel by the terror group Hezbollah.

Israel believes this threat is currently dire. This meeting preceded a two-week long Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) exercise to rehearse for possible war with Hezbollah. The Jerusalem Post described this exercise, which commenced on September 4 and is ongoing, as the IDF’s largest in 20 years.

Hezbollah has been a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization since 1997. However, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster reportedly brought NSC Senior Director on Counter-Terrorism Mustafa Javed Ali to the White House meeting with Israel. Ali, a McMaster appointee, is described by a senior administration source as being “opposed to Hezbollah’s designation as a terrorist organization.”

    Hezbollah and hamas have friends in the Liberals and NDP .
    What I don’t understand is that so many Sikh’s embrace the BDS by jew-haters and the islamofascists in Canada.
    If Sikh’s can carry a knife which came about after far too many jihad slaughters to their people….how come the SCOC won’t let non-sikh’s carry a knife to protect them from muslims in Canada.

    It’s only fair.

      Canada’s charter is missing two very important rights, the right to bear arms and property rights. Instead it is full of a lot of Marxist multiculturalism clap trap that should not be in it at all.

    Gen. McMaster is an anti-Semite, a globalist, an Islamist, a democrat, a member of the swamp, un-American, and a douche.

    Lying Trump, by virtue of his employment of McMaster is also all of the above in addition to also being a betrayer to all of the people who voted for him and his platform which he clearly does not intend on following.

    What does this guy have over Trump?

    The contradictions mentioned in this article will come to a head sooner or later. Right now, it looks like they have been set aside due to concern about North Korea.

      There are only two possible solutions to NK

      Either force the Chinese to act and force a regime change, by putting the economic and trade screws to China

      Or a sub based launch of a surprise / preemptive nuclear first strike. You can not risk an escalating traditional military response with a nuclear power, and further diplomatic options will not get any results.

      failure to take one of these actions will not only result in whatever escalation is going to happen next in the Korean peninsula, but will also lead to the proliferation of nuclear weapons being sold to Islamic terror states and groups by NK.

        When “unconditional surrender” is restored to our lexicon, we will get results.

    People at this level are all true politicians mostly chasing power with evil intent no matter what horse they pretend to ride.

  • Muslim moles are still, even after the departure of Muslim O’bummer, to be found in the highest levels of the US administration. McMaster is clearly a fifth columnist, and he is functioning quite openly. Trump’s appointment and then continued support of this guy is suspicious.

      Also no shortage of communist moles.

      I have to give McMaster full marks, he’s very good at what he does. It just happens to be polar opposite to what everyone thought Trump stood up for.
      The question really is how and why did this come to pass?
      Did Trump lie or was he played? If he was played then everything else we’d like to believe about Trump is also questionable. Ie, not the skilled deal maker that we’ve been led to believe?

    Heads up!
    This whole story might just be a fabrication.

    This is the general speaking in June of this year, where he calls Hezbollah a terrorist organization.
    “Israel today faces “sophisticated terrorist organizations—Hamas and Hezbollah—funded and aided by antagonistic nation states…””

    Reminder, believe nothing about the Trump administration that you do not hear come from Trump’s own Twitter account, or from his own lips at a press conference.

    I don’t belong to the people who excuses the leader for not knowing something.
    It’s not Mcmasters its Trump.

    • Sure, the buck stops at Trump. Still, one can complain about McMaster. He’s clearly become the dark force in this administration.

        politics one can compare to chess, if each figure does what it wants
        instead to gain the center take control of the area and
        put the enemy king Chess Mat on
        looses usually.
        figures have no own life, political subordinates especially generals
        cant have an own agenda, if they have its Trumps fault.
        he was talking about the best people in
        the world for his teem. who are they? ivanka, kushner tillterson and mcmaster? the teeth-less mad dog? who?
        the guy is left alone in DC with no one working for him, they just
        don’t give a damn shit he is potus!
        like you loose control over a car, it can end well but it
        usually don’t.

        • It’s a mess, that’s for sure. Trump consistently make the wrong choices in personnel.

          • vwVwwVwv

            as we know, still better than a potus hillery.

          • Yes.

    Israel needs to work around McMasters. He’s no better than the Obama flunkies when regarding Israel.
