It’s no secret that Obama hated Israel, and it’s no secret that he worked hard to undermine our most important ally. For most new presidents, mending the relationship between the United States and the sole democracy in the Middle East would be a difficult task.
But not, apparently, for Trump, who looks like he’ll fix it even before officially being president.
Rumor has it that Israeli Prime Minister and true democratic leader Benjamin Netanyahu might attend Donald Trump’s inauguration. The New York Post sums it up: “President-elect Donald Trump’s advisers want to invite Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu to the inauguration or arrange a meeting of the two leaders before then, a source close to the transition said. ‘There’s a plan for Trump to meet with Netanyahu,’ the source said. ‘They’re talking all the time. And Netanyahu is talking about possibly going to the inauguration.’
If that doesn’t sound like a big deal, it is – a foreign leader attending a swearing-in ceremony hasn’t happened. Ever. For Israel to show up like this, not a trace of bad blood between the US and the Jewish state would still remain.
Considering how badly Obama treated Israel, that’s a lot of bad blood to clean up. Obama made anti-Israel speeches. He asked Israel to shrink its own borders so that terrorists could have a Jewish-free place to live. He snubbed Netanyahu when the latter was gracious enough to visit and try to talk things through.
Also, he made a nuclear deal with Israel’s greatest enemy. Don’t forget that. Or the refusal to condemn a UN resolution to call Israeli families ‘thieves’ for taking what is, apparently, the rightful land of the non-existent Palestinian people. Don’t forget that, either.
Now, with all those insults and betrayals in mind, think for a moment: how much faith would you have to have in a leader to immediately make peace and work together?
For Bibi, faith in Trump is enough.
