Trump: It’s too bad Israel forced into new election

In his first comment on Israel’s political crisis, US President Donald Trump said Thursday he was sorry to see Israel forced into an election rerun, after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu failed to form a governing coalition. “It’s too bad what happened in Israel,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. “It looked like a total win for Netanyahu,” he said, praising the Israeli leader as a “great guy.” “They’re back in the election stage. That is too bad.”

On Thursday morning, Netanyahu saw the Trump’s peace team led by Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt in his office in Jerusalem for talks about the forthcoming Bahrain conference on the economic side of the Trump peace plan.  The team, which arrived in Israel from talks with Jordan’s King Abdullah in Amman plans to travel next to Rabat to meet the King of Morocco.

      It was a race to the end – Netanyahu needed a war in Iran as his way to breakout of the deep rut he’s driven the Kahanist Apartheid into – this time Netanyahu came up short.

    Trump and Bibi are more and more resembling Thelma and Louise, as they sail away into their bright new future

      The freshly radicalized American political landscape just stopped Netanyahu’s WWIII/War on Iran. An enormous wave of Americans just stopped a Necon/Netanyahu war

    Perhaps Netanyahu could turn orange then put on a 45% tariff on Liberman and see how it goes.

    It appears to the clear thinkers that the opposition has tried to derail the Bibi government in an effort to twart the coming Trump/Kushner peace plan due to be unveiled this month. So you have to ask, whose side they are REALLY on?
