I’m a sucker for the grandeur of events such as these, so I give you video showing the entire arrival ceremony earlier today in Israel.
If you want to skip a head to Trumps, Remarks, they begin at about 21:10.
“We love Israel; we respect Israel. And I send your people the warmest greetings from your friend and ally, all of the people in the United States of America,” he said. “We are with you. Thank you and God bless you.”
We don’t know whether Trump is about to pressure Israel into an unwelcome peace deal, although I doubt it. We do know that with Trump, unlike Obama, Israel has a sincere friend who understands its moral superiority to its neighbots and enemies and gets exactly who are the enemies, and who are the friends.
No more equating Israel with its enemies.
While Obama spent his presidency sucking up to the mullahs in Iran, Trump during this trip is seeking to ally Israel and the Arab world against Iran. He gets that the Saudis and other Arab states have their own problems, big ones. But he also understands that Iran is the key enemy, and that it has to be isolated and stopped.
