The American State Department has always been very anti-Israel. Remember that President Truman had been instructed by them to vote against a Jewish State on November 29, 1947. Truman overruled and instructed the American Ambassador to the United Nations to vote in favor of a Jewish State.
Then over the decades, with rare exceptions, things went from bad to worse culminating in the Obama-Kerry condemnation of Israel in the United Nations barely days before Donald Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.
Over the decades, like an emotionally damaged abused child, the State of Israel consistently treated the United States as a beloved friend, insisting that there was no better ally.
Israel accepted the insulting policy of the Americans leading the world in locating its embassy far from Jerusalem. No other country has had the international community veto its Capital City.
Finally, only under Donald Trump has the United States moved its Embassy to Jerusalem and stated very clearly that Israel has the right, like any other country, to chose its Capital. Also, Trump appointed the most pro-Israel and pro-Jewish Rights in all of the Land of Israel David Friedman to be his Ambassador to Israel.
Friedman paid a shiva/condolence call, to the bereaved family of otam Ovadia, who was murdered near his home in Adam. Apparently, this, too broke with previous practice, because Adam is in land liberated in the 1967 Six Days War.
We are very happy with Trump's policies towards Israel! It's about time there's a real friend in the White House!
