JNS.org – David Friedman, an American Jewish lawyer who serves as an adviser to Republican nominee Donald Trump, met with senior Israeli officials in Jerusalem this week.

In addition, a senior official in Jerusalem said that parallel to Friedman’s visit, one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s advisers also met with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s team in the United States, according to Haaretz. Netanyahu has reportedly set a strict policy in which Israel would maintain an unbiased position the US presidential election.

“The prime minister’s directive was clear – if we meet with one side we have to meet in parallel with the other side,” said the senior Israeli official. “We track every few meetings to ensure there is no advantage to one side.”

    Obama will nuke the entire world before he would allow Trump to become President. Trump represents defeat to everything Obama has feverously put in place for the take down of Israel and he will not allow that to happen. Trump does not realize Obama is a certified Islamic lunatic and that in his world Israel must be eradicated regardless of the cost.
