“This includes working with our greatest ally in the region, the State of Israel,” he said.

“We must abandon the failed policy of nation building and regime change that Hillary Clinton pushed in Iraq, Libya, Egypt, and Syria,” said Trump. “My opponent has called for a radical 550-percent increase in Syrian refugees on top of existing massive refugee flows coming into our country under President Obama. She proposes this despite the fact that there’s no way to screen these refugees in order to find out who they are or where they come from. I only want to admit individuals into our country who will support our values and love our people….Anyone who endorses violence, hatred, or oppression is not welcome in our country and never will be.”

  • Hopefully, Trump will be supportive of Israel. I remember when Obama was running, he used to make all kinds of positive and warm remarks about Israel and we all know how that turned out. There are no 100 percent ways to determine if an elected official is being honest or just using pandering rhetoric to gain votes. The only thing you can do is research their background. I don’t think Israel is going to be a major part of Trump’s platform. He is going to focus on trying to get us out of the financial mess we are in, increase jobs, and reduce the debt, which is perfectly fine because this is a big problem. I would rather have someone who is neutral on an issue than having someone who is destructive. Trump seems to be under the impression that he can broker some kind of treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. This isn’t going to happen. The Palestinians don’t have any desire to improve relations with Israel. If they were, they could have had it decades ago. Still, Trump would be an improvement over what we have had for the last seven and a half years.

  • this Christian German, whose father worked financially with the Nazis; is an evil, egomaniac that will destroy the democracy of the U.S.A. and will never help Israel. His running mate is a devote Christian that believes that all should believe in Christianity – be ware

    Disappointed that you support this flaming egoist, racist whose apparent values do not reflect Jewish ones.

  • All Christians in the world are behind DONALD TRUMP AND ISRAEL, because, never in history CHRISTIANS ever kill any one simply due to his religion faith or even for JESUS christ who was touchured and nailed on the cross for the salvation and victory of humanity over SINS!…..

    Copngratulations to future President Donald Trump. I’m absolutely convinced he’ll be a great president who will save America and Israel from muslims not just the terrorists but the people who are trying to invade and crush Under their masses the white people everywhere with the help of corrupt politicians such as hillovary who wants to be president just to flatter her ego and probably increase her bank account or muslims such as obanana who wnts muslims to prevail.hillovary has nothing to offer American except her ovaries and she cannot win with such a nonexistent “service”. Like all crooks she wants to take everything and give NOTHING in exchange.Unfortunately obamama was elected with the votes of fools, corrupt people and communists who want the destruction of our civilisation. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT.

  • Mr Trump. Good move as no one knows better than Israel on how to fight terrorism. Some terrorists will get through but most will not. And Israel knows who the terrorists are when they have an attack and don’t spend days and weeks and months trying to find an excuse as to why the attack occurred in the first place. If someone kills or tries to kill an Israeli, he/she is a terrorist and the only good terrorist is a dead terrorist. No inquiries, no excuses, no court cases and no prisoners, no ransomes. Just move on and eliminate the next “religion of peace” terrorist.

    He will too

    I hope the Jews in America will vote for Donald, the last two times 68 % of America’s Jews voted for Barack Hussein Obama . All the super rich and super powerful Jews in the Hollywood hierarchy still support the Left-Wing political agenda…they still see all of us White European’s as Nazi’s, so they all are on the side of all the radical Black’s and Communist of America. All the Television networks and companies are owned by American Jews who support Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton and the Jews in Israel must do the same…we are lucky to have any Right-Wing Jew in is a major phenomenon that there are any…shalom…

  • Even if he may looks silly sometimes in his for everyone to understand speech – jut for that I like him more now! There is a lot of hope actually for peace! When many will say “NO” to terror the we getting somewhere were is a lot of hope. And even if doesn’t looks like right now but there will be a better life for Middle East too.

  • This is the first time in long years that I heard a politician explicitely not only state that that he would work closely with the West’s greatest ally, the State of Israel and so make a clear statement against Anti-Semitism, but he also showed that he has the intelligence to know who is the best to seek advice from regarding the fight against Islamic Terrorism.

    The man is an idiot! If he becomes the President, the US is doomed. He may talk about helping Israel, but he has been proven to be untruthful.

  • Wendy Edelson

    How wonderful to be rid of the Anti-Israel quislings and Anti-Semites like Max and Sidney Blumenthal,Thomas Pickering, Anne-Marie Slaughter, John Kerry, Obama, Samantha Powers et al.
    Things will be SO MUCH BETTER!

  • The Donald is right on track.
