President Donald Trump is "the most pro-Israel president in U.S. history" — bucking global critics by moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, abandoning the Iran nuclear deal, and backing Israeli military operations in Syria, a prominent Israeli columnist says.
In an opinion piece for The Jerusalem Post, Caroline Glick lauds Trump for understanding that having "Israel in your corner" means the United States "is not isolated."
"From moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, to walking away from the nuclear deal which guaranteed Iran's eventual acquisition of nuclear weapons and financed its regional aggression and terrorism sponsorship, to unconditionally supporting Israel's military operations against Iranian positions in Syria, Trump has demonstrated that he is the most pro-Israel president in U.S. history.
"No other president comes close."
Glick argues the difference between Trump and previous presidents is "Trump accepts Israel on its own terms."
"He doesn't expect Israel to do anything to 'earn' American support. So long as Israel is in America's corner, he respects the Jewish state as America's ally."
She said Trump "has earned all the credit for transforming the U.S.-Israel relationship into a full-blown strategic relationship."
And she praised Netanyahu for preparing "the groundwork for his actions," calling him "the greatest statesman in Israel's history."
"Trump is the only person who decides his policies and so he has earned the admiration of the people of Israel, who are rightly moved by his extraordinary, unprecedented acts of friendship and support since entering office," she wrote.
