Israel Thanks Trump For Saving It From Spiteful Obama

Friday, December 23, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff
Israeli officials on Thursday thanked US President-elect Donald Trump for saving the Jewish state from one final jab from a spiteful President Barack Obama.
Earlier in the day, Egypt tabled a resolution at the UN Security Council demanding Israel halt all Jewish settlement activity in the so-called West Bank, including the eastern side of Jerusalem.
Obama had signaled that he would take the unusual step of not using American’s veto in the Council to squash the resolution.
“All the signs show that this was a [diplomatic] hit by Obama against [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and the settlements,” a government source told Israel’s Channel 2 News.
Knowing it could not rely on Obama, Israel turned to Trump. And Trump delivered.
Egypt suddenly pulled the resolution just hours before the vote. What changed their minds? A phone call from Trump to Egypt President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
Israel’s ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, expressed the Jewish state’s “deep appreciation” for Trump’s efforts.
