“He allows anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk around the NSC and tell people what to do and think.”Glick. Can,t have anyone who does not show complete fealty to Israel ,(even at the expense of the welfare of the US )roaming the halls of US power and leaking secrets about the real Israel.

I must admit that the developments are vertiginous and I’m not sure what to make of them. Trump’s agenda was deeply islamophobic, and the goal was to provoke terror attacks to use as a pretext to install a police state, and purge the ‘incompetents’ and the leakers. This is why the ‘deep state’ revolted, and rightly so. (And I thank them!) So I think this bodes well for stability and mideast peace, but at the… Read more »
