Trump Vows to Take on Anti-Semitism As He Recognizes Golan Heights

While the Democrats are boycotting AIPAC and celebrating anti-Semites like Rep. Omar, President Trump is standing with Israel and vowing to fight anti-Semitism.

With Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu standing at his side, US President Donald Trump on Monday signed an official presidential proclamation recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“Today I am taking historic action to promote Israel ability to defend itself, and really to have very powerful and very strong national security which they are entitled to have,” Trump said in the White House Diplomatic Reception Room soon after Netanyahu arrived at the White House for a meeting.

The meeting took place in the shadow of Hamas' missile attack on central Israel, and Trump said that attack showed “the significant security challenges Israel faces every single day.”

“Today aggressive action by iran and terrorist groups in southern Syria, including Hezbollah, continue to make the Golan heights a potential launching ground for attacks against Israel, very violent attacks,” Trump said.

Trump aid the US will confront the poison of antisemitism “through our words and perhaps more importantly, our actions.”

Netanyahu said he was leaving Washington and returning home l to “lead the people of Israel and the soldiers of Israel.”

The prime minister said that “over the years Israel has been blessed to have many friends who have sat in the Oval Office, but Israel has never had a better friend then you. You have showed this time and again.” 

Hard to deny that. Even for Democrats.
