These headlines plus some article excerpts are revealing about President Trump’s POSSIBLE reasons for leaving Israel in a security lurch.
Trump’s Syria Withdrawal and Mattis’ Resignation Startle Israel – and Undercut Netanyahu
Shock waves may be reverberating loudest in Israel, which has staked its entire national security policy on Trump’s friendship. It raises suspicions, hitherto brushed off as well, that Trump is, as his critics have alleged, a stooge of Russian President Vladimir Putin. For a large and rational chunk of Israeli public opinion, convinced by Netanyahu that Trump has Israel’s back, the U.S. withdrawal from Syria and Afghanistan, along with Mattis’ resignation, provides a nasty wake up call. With friends like Trump, some may wonder, who needs Barack Obama?
Donald Trump is now worse for Israel than Barack Obama!
Netanyahu often boasts that with Trump’s backing, Israel is stronger than ever, militarily as well as diplomatically. After the Syria pullout, Mattis’ departure and the ensuing prospects of a rogue Trump presidency, Israel suddenly seems weaker and potentially more isolated than ever before.
Ok, let me get this straight. Trump doesn’t want the nuclear agreement with Iran and puts sanctions on Tehran, then turns around and hands Iran the entire Middle East! Does that make sense to you? It doesn’t to me!
Either Trump is fickle, possibly psychotic, or he has an agenda no one has yet figured out!
Israel confounded, confused by Syria withdrawal, Mattis resignation
Combined with the departures of Chief of Staff John Kelly and Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, Israeli officials are scrambling to determine who is left in the White House who can convince President Donald Trump to think of Israel before taking such drastic security moves, as Mattis successfully did in the past, U.S. and Israeli officials said.
Mattis appeared to criticize the president for undermining important U.S. alliances. [A] former U.S. official said protecting allies like Israel was just one of the many things that Mattis did that has left top officials questioning whether they should remain in the administration.
Netanyahu says Israel to increase its “efforts” in Syria after US troop pullout
Netanyahu said Wednesday he had received advanced warning of the US troop pullout from Syria in telephone conversations with Trump on Monday, and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday.
Trump Tweet: Getting out of Syria was no surprise. I’ve been campaigning on it for years, and six months ago, when I very publicly wanted to do it, I agreed to stay longer. Russia, Iran, Syria & others are the local enemy of ISIS. We were doing there work. Time to come home & rebuild.
Does this mean the US is allied with Russia, Iran and Syria?
Israeli PM said to have rejected Russian promise to boot Iran from Syria for US pullout
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly rejected a Russian proposal three months ago that would have committed Moscow to expelling Iran and its proxy forces from Syria in exchange for a withdrawal of US troops from that country.
The offer was part of a pitch Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev gave to his Israeli counterpart Meir Ben-Shabbat in September, and was aimed at fostering better ties between the United States and Russia through a deal on Iran and Syria.
The proposal was however rebuffed by Netanyahu as it would have also included suspending US sanctions on Iran.
Kremlin Refutes Reports About Russian-US Agreement On US Withdrawal From Syria
Let’s not count this out. Trump and Putin are buds, you know.
Caroline Glick: US forces out of Syria seems like an unfriendly act towards Israel. But it isn’t.
By leaving Syria, the US is abandoning Obama’s pro-Iranian policy once and for all.
Trump’s decision to pull US forces out of Syria is of a piece with outgoing US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley’s address on Tuesday to the UN Security Council regarding the Palestinian conflict with Israel.
Hmmm… Maybe the peace process is what this move is all about.
Haley noted that the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians has failed for 50 years. And she said that it is time to try something new. She enjoined her “Arab and European brothers and sisters” to move beyond the “failed talking points” that formed the basis of the failed peace plans of the past half century. …The “peace process” which has been ongoing between Israel and the PLO since 1993 is antithetical to actual peace.
OK. So now, the Trump administration will use this endangerment tactic to coerce Israel so Trump can make the “deal of the century”. Is this really all about propping up Trump’s ego? Apparently so.
HALEY ENCOURAGED the Europeans and Arabs to make a choice “between a hopeful future that sheds the tired, old and unrealistic demands of the past or a darker future that sticks with the proven-failed talking points of the past.”
Sounds like the campaign rhetoric of an “Honorary President” of the Sanhedrin’s United 70 nations to me. Haley said she wanted to “try something new” when she resigned from the UN Ambassadorship.
Putting it all together, we have a peace process deal in the making through arm twisting the Israelis whose messianic Sanhedrin cabal is working to unite 70 nations around their Jewish messiah. Sounds like the perfect peace in Israel and worldwide to me! Hey! Isn’t that what the scriptures say the promise of the Antichrist will be!? Well… I’ll be! Who woulda thunk old Donald Trump would be the one to try to bring the Antichrist to the world!
My latest weekly report mentioned that both Trump and Putin are close to the modern Pharisaic cult known as Chabad. The Antichrist will bring peace everywhere, will he not? Is it possible part of the Antichrist’s false peace includes this concession of US troop withdrawal from Syria which could be used to force a two-state solution on Israelis and simultaneously “unite the 70 nations” under the Sanhedrin with Nikki Haley at the “honorary” helm?
All I can say is we will have to wait, watch and see what happens. This might just be the actions of a destructive mad man who is unqualified to run a small business, let alone a corporation, or worse yet a nation. However, I have noticed that every time Trump defies his counselors bad things start to happen to Israel.
