Everyone is talking about Emmanuel Macron at the White House, come to save the Iran deal: the Trumps gave a state dinner for the French president last night, amid news footage of bromance and French hats and other pageantry.

Well: someone else is in the picture! Reports the New York Times‘s Peter Baker and Julie Hirschfeld Davis:

For their part, Israeli officials moved to shape Mr. Trump’s thinking as well. Avigdor Liberman, the Israeli defense minister, said he planned to leave for the United States on Tuesday night so that he could meet with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and John R. Bolton, the president’s new national security adviser and a longtime opponent of the Iran nuclear agreement. The meetings, he said on Twitter, were to discuss “Iran’s expansion in the Middle East and Syria.”

According to Jewish Insider, Lieberman arrived in Newark this morning, was welcomed by a rabbi, and hopped on the train for Washington. He and Bolton and Trump will have much to talk about, as they “shape Mr. Trump’s thinking.”

As Defense Minister, Lieberman has been the chief justifier of the Gaza snipers, which have now killed more than 40 Gazans.

I wonder why ? “Fifteen of the 19 hijackers of the four airliners who were responsible for 9/11 originated from Saudi Arabia, two from the United Arab Emirates, one from Egypt, and one from Lebanon.
