Israel Doesn't Need American Soldiers

I am not gladdened, relieved or any positive emotion hearing that there will be an American Base with American soldiers stationed here in Israel. I don't see how that can enhance Israel's security and sovereignty. It will be a dangerous Trojan Horse.
US opens first permanent military base in Israel
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, Defense News reported.
Today 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.

It's always possible The odds are that subsequent US Presidents will be more like Obama, Carter or a Bush who felt animosity towards Israel and Likud Prime Ministers and tried to do everything to facilitate the establishment of a new Arab state they'd call "Palestine." Donald Trump is an exception. And you should never make decisions according to something as impermanent as a "President Trump."

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.

Dont worry. Geula is here. The soldiers are all probably some crazy gilgul story. There will NOT be another president. We will greet Moshiach instead.

It is dangerous to be so overconfident. The process may take a very long time. Nobody knows the future.

I agree. The Land of Israel is just that... and NOT a colony.

As with the young shepherd in David of old, G-d gives His victories to whom He chooses.

Being an Australian I am very mindful that in 1917 it was the suicidal charge of the Australian Light Horse that G-d used to breech the Turkish trenches at Beersheba after General Allenby's artillery had failed in three previous attempts to overcome the Turkish/German defenses.

Let's pray believing that G-d's ways never change

We're in galut for 2000 yrs. because we invited the Romans in. Only Moshiach can help and will help us now.

Yes and no. Gd will only act if we do our part first.
