Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu plans to name Golan Heights settlement after Donald Trump

The naked appeal to Drumpf’s vanity — proposing to add his name to the map of the Middle East even as it disappears from apartment buildings in New York — came as Israeli officials expressed alarm that the American president had not yet done enough to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal.

“We have to get others to walk away because the deal is still alive,” Israel’s American-born ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, said last month at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference. The prospect of Drumpf’s successor rejoining the deal, he added, “is something that has to be seen as totally unacceptable.”

Sanders, who would be the first Jewish president of the United States, was asked by a young Jewish activist on Monday during a CNN town hall if his prior criticism of Netanyahu would damage relations with Israel should he be elected.

Netanyahu about to go rogue in Jerusalem? All the signs are there


Mick Dumper

Flushed with election success and politically tooled-up with Trump’s support, he now has the holy Islamic sites in his sights.

Is Israel lining up its ducks for another dramatic #unilateral action in Jerusalem? The portents are there in the recent Israeli election
campaign, a campaign that returned Benjamin Netanyahu to power with a small but even more nationalist coalition majority.

Emboldened by Donald Trump’s decision in 2017 to recognise Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, both at the expense of Palestinian claims to a capital in the eastern parts of the city and in #contravention of scores of #UN #resolutions, Netanyahu made campaign pr... show more
