(Right Country) – President Donald Trump’s first term will go down in history as a truly unprecedented presidency.
His administration has broken a number of barriers and brought long-overdue hope to our nation—and to our allies abroad.
For decades, the Jewish state of Israel has been at the receiving end of the hatred and scorn of the surrounding Muslim world.
They are condemned by the United Nations and subject to routines threats of annihilation from nations such as Iran.
Meanwhile, progressive politicians in the United States listen to mainstream media’s Hamas-inspired narratives on the volatile situation between the Palestinian Authority and the Nation of Israel in the Jews’ ancestral homeland.
Vehement antisemitism is widespread in the world today and none in the United States participate more than the progressive left.
Meanwhile, no one has been more of a friend to the Jewish people than President Donald Trump.
And now that he’s up for re-election, the citizens of Israel know what is at stake, perhaps more acutely than many Americans.
The Washington Times reports that Israeli and American Trump supporters held a convoy rally that drove vehicles decorated in American flags and Trump 2020 banners from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Once in the Holy City, they held a rally outside the U.S. Embassy, which was famously moved to the historic capital of Israel under President Donald Trump, a long-awaited move that several of Trump’s predecessors had put off.
The Times notes that the procession consisted of around two dozen vehicles and was organized by Republicans Overseas Israel.
Although Jews stateside are expected to vote overwhelmingly for Democrat challenger Joe Biden, Trump is well-loved in Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with whom Trump enjoys a very close friendship, described him as the “greatest friend” his nation has ever had in the White House.
While the majority of the rally participants reportedly appeared to be American, there were some activists showing their support for Netanyahu’s Likud party.
“More and more people are wakening and seeing who Donald Trump truly is – that he’s for the people and for the Jewish people,” said Jacob Lieberman. He had his face painted with the American flag and sported a Trump 2020 cap.
“What he has done for the Jewish people, there are no words, no words to explain. Exceptional president.”
The Times notes that, “During his time in office, Trump has taken a number of moves welcomed by Israel – beginning with his recognition of contested Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the subsequent move of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump also recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, has taken a softer line toward Israeli settlement construction on occupied lands and recently brokered diplomatic pacts between Israel and three Arab countries.”
