For those of us who endured right years of antisemitism and attack against the Jewish state by President Obama, this was a glorious moment. This marks a turning point — we have embrked on a glorious new era in US/Israel relations.

‘We have a friend in the White House’

Israeli reaction: Coalition politicians welcomed President Trump’s warm approach to Israel and described the summit meeting as ‘the end of two-state epoch’.
Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett described it as “A new era. After 24 years, the Palestinian flag has been removed from the flagpost and exchanged for the Israeli flag.”
