Trump, Israel & American Relations. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Speaks Out, A Shift is Taking Place


LISTEN NOW! America’s relationship with Israel is so important. Since the establishment of the state of Israel, America was there acknowled ging their existence and standing beside them. As Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu understands the importance of their relationship with America. When he sat down with 60 Minutes Lesley Stahl, he spoke about this relationship as well as many other issues that Israel is experiencing.
As America, has been watching President Elect Trump’s transition to the White House, Prime Minister Netanyahu is aware of not only President Elect Trump, but also his relationship toward Israel. ‘I know him very well.  And I think his attitude, his support for Israel is clear.  He feels very warmly about the Jewish state and about the Jewish people. There’s no question about that.’
As the Prime Minister shares his perspective of President Elect Trump, Stahl turns the attention toward the Iran Deal that took place during the Obama Administration and the Prime Minister’s response to the deal. “I think it’s my responsibility, to speak up when something threatens our very future.” This should be no question. If someone were threatening the very safety and peace of America, we would want the leadership of America to speak out against it as well. In this matter, it is important to note that Israel is 70 miles wide at its widest point.
As Prime Minister Netanyahu has been fully aware of his own state of Israel, he is also aware of the dangers and threats posed by Iran since the inception of the Nuclear Deal. Some would say that the onsite inspections of the Iran Deal have provided intelligence for Israel. For those, the Prime Minister responds with a simple, “No”. Per the Prime Minister, the one good thing to come from this deal was not about intelligence, “The only good thing that I can say about the deal with Iran is that it brought the Arab states and Israel closer together.” As the Prime Minister continues to expand on this reality, he shares, “Israel’s position in the Arab world has changed because they no longer see Israel as their enemy but as their ally in their indispensable battle against the forces of militant Islam.” As Stahl continues to ask about Israel’s relations with multiple countries in the Middle East, the Prime Minister simply shares in a simple and concise manner.
As the conversation switches from the Middle East to the topic of Russia, the Prime Minister describes Israel’s relationship with Russia this way; “It’s amicable. But the minute Mr. Putin decided to put his military forces in Syria, I went to see him.  And I said, “Look, here’s what I’m doing.  I’m not intervening in Syria. But at the same time, if Syria tries to intervene with us, if Iran tries to use Syria to attack us, we’ll stop it.” If there was a war going on in Canada that was encroaching upon the Northern borders of America, we would visit the leadership of Canada to talk as well.
Stahl continues to question Israel’s relationship with Russia as well as China, stating “You seem to be inching toward an anti-American bloc.” The Prime Minister emphatically responds, “God no.” He continues to share, “First of all, there is an irreplaceable ally.  It’s called the United States of America.”
Amidst all of the activities within the Middle East and other parts of the world, Israel is continuing to not only thrive, but also to bless the nations of the world with the many different technologies and inventions that are birthed in Israel.  Stahl points out, “Countries that used to vote against you regularly at the U.N., are now your clients.” This is such a differing reality than what has reportedly been taking place in the United Nations. According to the Jerusalem Institute of Justice, there has been an Islamic-Communist Voting Bloc in the United Nations that has continually targeted the State of Israel.  With such a vastly differing reality taking place within the United Nations, we can see that a powerful shift is taking place.
Continue to pray for the peace of Israel and for the hand of the Lord to be upon Israel during these times. Be not only educated about the events involving Israel, but also greatly encouraged as you see how Israel is blessing so many others, and so much more.
