Thank You President Trump! From an American Jew in Israel

The time difference in Israel being 7-10 hours ahead, depending on where you live in America, I watched your speech at a later time, not live.  I want to say THANK YOU, for condemning anti-Semitism first and foremost in your speech.

Anti-Semitism has been on the rise over the past 8 years, not the past 8 months.   It has been happening particularly in college campuses, with graffiti in Synagogues and other Jewish facilities.  Even BDS has been encouraging performers and celebrities not to come to Israel.  This is why I agree with your statement that fake news is a danger and the enemy to the American people.

For example, everyone is freaking out about the photo of your spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway. She took a picture of everyone in a meeting at the Oval Office and just happened to be on her knees… and people flipped out.  Yet there is no outrage or questions being asked about the convicted Palestinian terrorist, who took part in killing 2 Israelis, who is taking charge of organizing the next women’s march.

Ok, no more negativity, because with this article I want to show you how appreciative I am, especially being an American Jew in Israel, that you openly and without regret condemn anti-Semitism.  I have not heard Obama, nor even Bush condemn these hate crimes.

All the campaigning I did for you, whether on the ground to Americans in Israel or online in social media formats, I want to say, it was worth it. I do also want to make it clear that I respect how you make America your priority.  This should be any American President’s priority. It’s not your responsibility to make Israel (or any other country) a priority.  We have our own leaders who should help our country be great.

I appreciate the fight for Americans that you and Vice President Pence are showing. And I will continue to fight for you and America in the best way I can.

Again from the bottom of my heart, thank you President Donald Trump, MY President.
