Israel: Trump Is A Global Security Threat
By Herb Brandon
Israel News Agency
Jerusalem, Israel April 29, 2016
Security analysts in Israel have long believed that Donald Trumps candidacy was not real.
It was started and restarted in recent years. Perhaps an excellent marketing campaign to brand his real estate properties. But as Trump now allocates more of his own money (actually not his, but being loaned to Trump with online donations) his demeanor as an aggressive, serious candidate is now transparent.
His lack of seriousness in addressing both domestic and foreign issues is anything but serious.
Most alarming is Trumps new campaign slogan America First, says an Israel security and defense analyst who has worked with the Israel Ministry of Defense.
The slogan America First was first created and used to support Nazi Germany and to keep the US out of War World 2.
America First is not about placing America First but rather the continuing and destructive Obama, Clinton concept of isolation not actively engaging Americas enemies. This has a direct and negative effect on Israel with Trump having said that he is neutral on Palestinian terrorism, that Israel was not committed to peace and that only after heavy criticism and desperation to secure votes, Trump agreed to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
Trump stated that he will negotiate a deal with the Palestinians. Sounds great if you are talking at a 5th grade school level. Reality asks who will Trump negotiate with? Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, Fatah or ISIS? None of these terror groups agree on anything except for the destruction of the Jewish state, says the veteran security professional.
Who will Trump negotiate with as his proposed ban on Muslims to the US now has him banned from every Arab and Muslim nation? How can we form an international Islamic and Arab alliance against ISIS as Trump bashes Muslims?
As a result of Trumps proposed ban, Prime Minister Netanyahu suggested to Trump to cancel his visit to Israel last December. No one wanted to see mass demonstrations at Ben-Gurion Airport or at the Prime Ministers Office.
Every political party in Israel agreed that it would be destructive to have Trump in Israel. No one wanted to be photographed shaking the hand of a racist. Trump stated that the ban would be temporary until we find out whats going on.
What Trump does not understand or does not want to understand in order to secure votes from scare tactics is that the CIA, NSA, military intelligence and the FBI know exactly what is going on. They have done an excellent job in securing the US.
No one, including the Israelis, can ever prevent terrorism by 100 percent, but we are doing an effective job.
But its not just Israel which Trump threatens.
Trump wants to dismantle NATO and is asking European states to pay their share for membership. What Trump does not realize is that security comes first and payment comes second. Many European nations such as the Ukraine need American support today without financial conditions that they cannot meet. Trump attacks China with regard to foreign trade as he outsources the manufacture of his line of ties and shirts to China.
If China was to forgo and or limit trade with the US it would have a devastating effect on China and the US economy. Trump doesnt mention this. This is not placing America First.
Foreign policy experts might also find severe fault in some of the internal contradictions in Trumps speech: hes against stabilizing countries but in favor of world stability, he wants to save money but to spend without limit on the military, he wants to return the US to its supposed previous status as a strong and reliable ally but claims that the most important thing is that America remain unpredictable.
Trump forgets that if Washington turns unpredictable, others will follow in its wake and the most likely outcome will be chaos. Nuclear chaos.
While most foreign governments were careful not to comment publicly on a speech by a US presidential candidate, Germanys foreign minister veered from protocol to express deep concern at Trumps wording.
I can only hope that the election campaign in the USA does not lack the perception of reality, Frank-Walter Steinmeier said.
The worlds security architecture has changed and it is no longer based on two pillars alone. It cannot be conducted unilaterally, he said of foreign policy in a post-Cold War world. No American president can get round this change in the international security architecture . America first is actually no answer to that.
Carl Bildt, a former Swedish prime minister and foreign minister who served as UN envoy to the Balkans in the aftermath of the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, said he heard Trumps speech as abandoning both democratic allies and democratic values.
Trump had not a word against Russian aggression in Ukraine, but plenty against past U.S. support for democracy in Egypt, Bildt said on Twitter, referring to lines from Trumps speech that criticized the Barack Obama administration for withdrawing support for autocrat Hosni Mubarak during a 2011 uprising.
The US can only assist Israel and her allies if she remains strong, focused and consistent. It is doubtful that under Trumps watch we will ever see anything consistent. Trump, who has no experience in the military or global public affairs, would be forced to rely on advisers. Problem is, at the age of 69 and a highly sheltered life, Trump has not and will not consult with others.
If he does, Trump would then be forced to make the final decision.
If Trump does not know the basic elements of the US Constitution how is he expected to understand complicated, external threats by Russia, Iran, North Korea, ISIS, Hamas and China?
Senator Ted Cruz is the only rational answer for a stable environment in the White House. Cruz serves on the following Senate committees:
Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation Chairman, Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness Member, Subcommittee on Aviation Operations, Safety, and Security Member, Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet Member, Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, Insurance, and Data Security Member, Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard Senate Committee on the Judiciary Chairman, Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts Member, Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest Member, Subcommittee on the Constitution Joint Economic Committee Senate Committee on Armed Services Member, Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities Member, Subcommittee on SeaPower Member, Subcommittee on Strategic Forces Senate Committee on Rules and Administration
Ted Cruz has the experience to govern.
He has proven his dedication to the American people and her allies.
As for Israel, Cruz has stopped a ban against airline flights from the US to Israel, he is presently closing the offices of the PLO in Washington, he is passing laws to recover Holocaust assets.
Ted Cruz knows what the nuclear triad is, he also knows how to pronounce Tanzania.
Its true! To America’s enemies Trump is a great threat!
Is this satire?
Is this satire?
If it isn’t, it is the most bullshit I’ve seen in one place in quite awhile.
We American citizens will take our chances with Trump so butt out globalist elites.
Parroting the ADL. Rest assured Israel it will be much better than the last 8 years have been. You once again will become an ally, instead of a castoff.
Easy. Until ISIS is destroyed, not one tanker leaves the gulf, and all pipelines are shut down or both will be destroyed. They can cooperate or deal with a massive cleanup then cooperate.
The usual...This is what Trump said.
Has Cruz ever told us how, who, when he will negotiate for a two state solution?
From the Israel Noose Agency, no less! Another branch of that Never Trump PAC Jews for the Destruction of Israel.
This article comes as no surprise, whoever that hack ‘Herb Brandon’ is, he’s in the tank for Ted Cruz so naturally he’s going to pen this YUGE pile of bullshit.
Print this off and use it for bird cage liner, hopefully the bird won’t get too pissed off at you.
Money quote of this false narrative; terrorism aside for the moment, we can see in our own communities that the country is being overrun by Moslem and illegal immigrants
ONE unnamed supposed Israeli 'security expert'
plus two leftwing European government political operatives
do not equal "Israel."
Would improve his presentation.
There are plenty of dangerously insane left-wing ding dongs in Israel - particularly in their media - so I don’t get why it would surprise anyone. They certainly don’t speak for all of Israel.
Trump is a disaster. He is even a threat to our allies.
Trump is going to be the Republican nominee and next president. Live with it.
Trump did NOT use the term America First. This is an effort to make Trump a NAZI. Trump said what is best for America we will put our interests ahead of others. That is what a nation does
Brandon delivers Bloombat blather..
Oh Muslims are so anxious to form an alliance with Israel. It is easy to see by their death to Israel chants. Sometimes things are too stupid to believe.
