Trump’s GOP Becomes More Pro-Israel Than Ever

 

U.S. Republican Party updates its official policy platform, taking an unprecedented pro-Israel position including Jerusalem, as the “indivisible” capital of the Jewish State.

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday declared on Twitter that the party’s platform is now more pro-Israel than it has ever been.

Indeed, the Republican Party’s Platform Committee did make surprising policy changes that no previous candidate would or could have represented.

The new platform erases all reference to a “two-state solution” and utterly rejects “the false notion that Israel is an occupier.” It further states that Jerusalem is the “indivisible” capital of the Jewish state.

“Our party is proud to stand with Israel now and always,” that portion of the Republican platform concludes. The changes must still be approved by the full Republican National Convention.

Hours later, Trump again took to Twitter to ask, “Is President Obama trying to destroy Israel with all his bad moves?”

It remains surprising to most (at least those who don’t read the Bible) how such a small country embroiled in a relatively minor conflict could be such an important plank in the platforms of the two parties contesting the most influential job in the world.

    I hope the American Jews will reward the party with their support. The unfortunate truth is that many if not most Jewish people are liberals who continually vote for Democrats even if the Democrats and liberals do not support the only Jewish state in the world, where a large percentage of the worldwide Jewish population now lives. What is more important than the survival of the Jewish people? A Palestinian controlled West Bank would be an ISIS controlled West Bank, just a few miles from Tel Aviv! There is no way that Israel could effectively defend herself against her enemies in that case. Jewish lives would be lost on a large scale. Giving up land for peace has never worked in the past and it never will. The Palestinians and many other Arab countries openly oppose the existence of both Israel and the Jewish people. I believe that the two state solution will not bring peace, but will bring increased attacks on civilians which may lead to war that could spread to the whole region and the world. Those who push for the two state solution are like those who thought that it was possible to have an effective treaty with the Nazis.
