As an American who lives in Israel, I realize how much influence the American President has. From Carter all they way down Obama they can be very influential. For example; Former president Jimmy Carter became a Hamas sympathizer and Bill Clinton tried hard to push for a 2-state solution.
George W. Bush and his administration pressured giving up Gaza to the Arabs which brought Hamas closer, and their rockets. Obama also pushed a 2-state solution and pre-1967 borders, which would also bring Hamas closer to Israelis.
As I have watched this very important U.S. primary elections, I paid very close attention to their foreign policy, especially regarding Israel, of course. Yes, Ann Coulter, Israel and the Jewish people again, deal with it. Israel is indeed the tip of the spear with terrorism. So good relations with both countries are vital to combat a mutual enemy. Radical Islam.
When I first heard Donald Trump’s response about being neutral to Israel and Palestinians it raised questions. Then I reminded myself, we are not at war with each other, it’s radical Islam we are at war with. So Donald Trump is absolutely right. After I made my endorsement for his Presidency I looked into more of his stance on Israel and his foreign policy. One thing is for sure, he has no problem in identifying humanity’s enemy as radical Islam.
The more I learn about who we fight in terrorism, the more I learn about the Arab people. Many want peace like many Israelis. Donald Trump is correct.
What also impressed me more, he is learning more about the situation. For example, he is seeing where terrorism starts by brainwashing Arab children to hate Israel and the Jewish people. Not many politicians or presidents recognize this problem, and he specifically stated that this needs to stop. He is against this dangerous Iranian nuke deal that Obama and his administration incompetently created. And Trump plans to get rid of it.
Even though personally I am against any 2-state solution, I do like the fact that he does say the Jewish state has the right to exist. More proof that Trump is right for Israel, his words state, let Israel run itself regarding the 2-state solution.
Donald Trump has donated money to Israeli organizations, has a golf course here, and won many awards including the grand marshal for the Israeli day parade. He has also opened up country clubs for Jewish people in America because so many were denied access for being Jewish.
His own words said he will back Israel.
