US opens first permanent military base in IsraelToday the United States has the most sincerely pro-Israel President in the History of American-Israeli Relations, Donald Trump, but he won't be President forever. Once Trump is out of office, it won't matter that he and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu got along great and that Trump appointed the very Zionist David Freedman as Embassador.
Israel and U.S. officials on Monday inaugurated the first permanent American military base in the country, which will house dozens of U.S. troops and a missile defense system.
The base will be located within the Israel Defense Forces Air Defense School in southern Israel, near Beersheba, .
The United States has been trying to get its military into Israel for decades. That was the plan of Nixon and Kissinger during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Their "help" was aimed to orchestrate a "tie," which would weaken Israel. And in that weakened state, the Americans had hoped to move in. Of course that would have weakened us even more, very much like the so-called military aid, which is really "buy in America" shopping coupons. Israel's military industries have been seriously weakened and restricted because of all the "strings" attached to the so-called aid.
Young people weren't around during Israel's great military victories in 1967, 1973, and even I wasn't alive during our War for Independence. We had no foreign ally fighting with us then. And even weapons, tanks etc were hard to purchase, while the enemy Arab armies were well supplied. So, how did we win? This may sound corny, but the truth is, that our victories were miracles. Yes, Gd helped. That's how it works for the Jewish People.
I'd like to thank US President Trump for his friendship and the excellent Ambassador he has in the United Nations, but I'd really prefer that he keep his troops at home.
