Report: Jews in Trump Team Pushing Israel To Show Not Pro-Israel
Dr. Aaron Lerner 5 October. 2017
Ariel Kahaneh reports in the 4 October edition of Makor Rishon that
according to a diplomatic source, the Jews in the Trump team - Ambassador
David Friedman and Jason Greenblatt - are pushing Israel hard as they are
accused by their White House colleagues as being pro-Israel.
Prime Minister Netanyahu has been presenting construction plans to Friedman
and Greenblatt that he has already reduced to please Washington and Friedman
and Greenblatt have insisted on further cuts.
It is noteworthy that while Israel has slashed construction plans - with
most activity limited to moving plans one step out of a long series of steps
rather than approval of actual construction - Mahmoud Abbas has openly and
vocally rejected President Trump's demand that he stop financially rewarding
Palestinians for murdering Israelis.
Since President Trump called for Abbas to stop providing a financial
incentive for terror, many Israelis have been murdered by Palestinians whose
families have already started receiving a monthly pay-off from Abbas.
And this money is often THE motive.
This September, Palestinian wife beater Nimer Jamal didn't even go to the
trouble of claiming to be motivated by a desire to "resist the occupation"
when he went out to kill Israelis and be killed so that his estranged wife
would have the money to raise their children.
Despite this sharp contrast: PM Netanyahu slashing construction plans to
please Trump while Abbas continues rewarding murderers, President Trump
reportedly told UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that "Netanyahu is
the bigger problem" as compared to Abbas.
