I contend that the one and only reason why these political earthquakes have occurred both in Great Britain and the United States in the same year (ie Brexit and Trumpit) is God and the nation of Israel. First, it was the United Kingdom’s Balfour Declaration of 1917, which favored the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine. And second, it was the United States, using its considerable influence in the UN in 1948, that pushed for, and made possible, Israel’s statehood:
“Deeply affected by the Holocaust, [President Harry] Truman sympathized with Jewish aspirations for a homeland. Britain announced that it would hand authority over Palestine to the U.N. by May 14, 1948. With Truman’s decision, the hopes of the Jewish people were realized …

After years of abusive neglect by the Obama pro-Muslim/anti-Israel administration (Obama rudely leaving Netanyahu in the WH back-door kitchen a few years ago) Israel (and Jordan) is once again about to become the staunch ally of the United States (and vice-versa) as an oasis of stability and republican democracy in the Middle East. It represents the ideal government and leadership that both president-elect Trump and VP Mike Pence envision.
Historically, Israel has always been the eyes of the US in the Middle East until Obama and his Muslim minions in the Brotherhood pulled back sharply during the past eight years; and we all know how important it is to keep eyes on the enemy both foreign and domestic, like ISIS, IS, Hamas, Al-Qaeda and others. And it goes back to the trust issue. In diplomacy and intelligence, US and Israeli interests are aligned very closely, and will be again for the foreseeable future.
Don’t forget also that Israel is a technological powerhouse, and benefits the US in tech transfer, co-operation, and investment. Silicon Valley is very closely connected to Israel. So beyond the immediate homeland security issues, there is also the promise of greater economic co-operation as well; especially with one of the smartest businessmen on the planet now our president-elect.
God does not forget how the Gentile nations treat his first-born son, the people of Israel (Exodus 4).
This may come as a shock to some people but politicians often say things just to get elected and forget what was said once they do. This past week, riding in on what portends to be the greatest pro-Israel administration since the inception of the Jewish state, president-elect Donald Trump and his vice president Mike Pence will assume the reins of power on January 20, 2017.
In choosing Pence as his running mate this past July, Trump wasn’t looking for a carbon copy of himself but a calm, establishment conservative well versed in the ways of Washington and a voice of reason to offset his own brashness. His faith in these qualities was exhibited this past Friday when he chose the vice president-elect to head their transition team, abruptly replacing New Jersey governor Chris Christie. Joining him in this luminous position is a team of unprecedented pro-Israel/Jewish advocates which, for starters, include:
- Jason D. Greenblatt — Trump chief lawyer, close friend and orthodox Jew.
- Rudy Giuliani — Long time influential friend of Israel, welcomed guest in Jerusalem’s corridors of power.
- David Friedman — Speculated as possible ambassador to Israel under the new administration, Friedman has an impeccable pro-Israel stance
- Steven Mnuchin — Served as Trump’s campaign finance chairman and mentioned as possible Secretary of the Treasury. His father, Robert is a renowned Jewish philanthropist.
- Jared Kushner — Orthodox Jewish son-in-law of the president-elect and close confidant has been described as “de facto campaign manager,” and was reportedly highly influential in the billionaire’s selection of Mike Pence as running mate.
- Richard Grenell — On a short List of candidates for UN ambassador. Arthur Schwartz, a strategist for pro-Israel groups stated: “Ric Grenell has proven to be stridently pro-Israel.”
However, none of these refreshingly pro-Israel supporters have an actual congressional voting record, as does Mike Pence. Long before dreaming of one day serving as our 48th vice-president, Pence has had an impeccable record of ardent support for the Jewish state.
