Trump urges Israel to 'stay strong' with inauguration less than a month away

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. December 28, 2016, 5:06 PM (IDT)

Less than two hours before US Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Middle East policy, and in the aftermath of Washington’s abstention on Friday’s UN Security Council resolution against Israel, President-elect Donald Trump wrote on Twitter that “We cannot let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect.” He then tweeted “They used to have a great friend in the US” but “not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (UN)!” Trump added “Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!” 

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.

    Gosh, I was under the impression that Israel had their own government, their own military, their own society, their own, their own, their own…..why are we giving them so much help?

    I do not get why we help oppressors… of the free home of oppression? From my research Israel is oppressing Palestine.

    Oh sure they give warnings of where they will be bombing… would you feel if America claimed it was helping the native Americans by bombing the villages or towns….then move in and claim that land as theirs…..

    Oh wait, it did….. Is Israel the next America ? Pulling the same scams we did over two hundred yrs ago…where’s the UN, oh that’s right…they do not really protect anything except….money, there is no elections for positions there, and once you’re in, your in for life….sounds United to me
