Israel First in Helsinki

"I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction." - Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking to Israeli settlers in Hebrew in 2001


What a surprise! Not:

"Donald Trump went into his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Finland deeply concerned about national security. It wasn't the security of American citizens, however, but rather those of Israel that the US President appeared to have on his mind. This wasn't a surprise as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had been urging Trump to discuss Israel's number one strategic concern with the Russian President: Iran's involvement in Syria." (Why Netanyahu liked what he saw from Trump on Helsinki, Ian Lee,, 17/7/18)
