Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday morning congratulated Joe Biden after US news outlets declared him the winner of the election.
"Congratulations Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Joe, weve had a long & warm personal relationship for nearly 40 years, and I know you as a great friend of Israel. I look forward to working with both of you to further strengthen the special alliance between the U.S. and Israel," he tweeted.
Netanyahu also thanked Trump for his friendship and actions taken during his presidency.
"Thank you Donald Trump for the friendship you have shown the state of Israel and me personally, for recognizing Jerusalem and the Golan, for standing up to Iran, for the historic peace accords and for bringing the American-Israeli alliance to unprecedented heights."

Trump saved Bibi's fat ass multiple times.
All Netanyahu had to do was say nothing. What a schmuck.
I wonder if this has sunk in to Kushner yet.
Damn, Benny, what the heck are you smoking?
Gee Bibi so quick to toss President Trump in favor of a lowlife Anti Semite!
Perhaps he is afraid for his country and is acting in a pragmatic fashion. He knows war with Iran is inevitable and Israel MUST have the USA (Biden or Trump) on their side. He knows Trump will stand with them regardless of this slight. He doesn’t know for sure what Biden will do.
Or perhaps hes a two faced coward
“70% voted Biden”
He should look to Yahweh for the needs against the enemies of the land not in man God has vowed to never forsaken the Jewish nation. needless to say BiBi shall face judgment ten fold for this lil stunt.
Apparently the world has forgotten who Americans really are. If we have to bring the world down to nothing to win our freedom we will.
I googled it
He should know. Obama threatened Israel with military action if they caused any problems for Iran. Can’t remember the details but I do remember that. Like I said on another post, this will be obama’s 3rd term.
To hell with weak fair-weather friends.
Yes, pretty sad to see. For America AND Israel.
I think Amir of Behold Israel will probably run for Prime minister he’ll be the first true Messianic Jewish believer in Jesus Christ to run and he might win as well.
Kamala Harris: Restore Aid to Palestinians, Reopen U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, PLO Office in D.C.
Democrat vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) made an unannounced stop in Metro Detroit, Michigan, last weekend and followed up with an interview with Dearborn-based Arab American News published Wednesday, where she shared her support for reinstating aid to Palestinians in Israel, and for reoopening the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) mission office in Washington, DC, and the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem.
Harris said of herself and Democrat presidential candidate former vice president Joe Biden:
Joe and I also believe in the worth and value of every Palestinian and every Israeli and we will work to ensure that Palestinians and Israelis enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity and democracy. We are committed to a two-state solution, and we will oppose any unilateral steps that undermine that goal. We will also oppose annexation and settlement expansion.
And we will take immediate steps to restore economic and humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people, address the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza, reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, and work to reopen the PLO mission in Washington, Harris said.
As Breitbart News reported, both Harris and Biden are wrong about the U.S. consulate being in Eastern Jerusalem:
The U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem was not even in East Jerusalem, but in the Western part of the city, near downtown, on the Israeli side of the 1949 armistice line (also known as the 1967 border). Its old functions still exist, and are handled by the U.S. embassy of which the old consulate building is now an annex.
And neither Harris nor Biden have asked for anything in return for restoring aid to the Palestinians, as also noted in the same Breitbart News report:
Joe Biden would give Palestinians hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars per year without any commitment to stop rewarding terrorism or to renew negotiations. He would restore the U.S. Consulate in West Jerusalem without any concessions from the Palestinians, and reopen the PLO office in Washington in defiance of U.S. law. His stance on restoring funding also implies the repeal of the Taylor Force Act, which is not only meant to protect Israelis but to deter and punish Palestinian terrorists for attacks on Americans.
Moreover, as Breitbart News reported, there was good reason for Trump to stop funding the Palestinians:
The Trump administration closed the Washington, DC, office of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 2018 because, as the Jerusalem Post noted at the time, it was congressionally obligated to close the diplomatic facility should Palestinian officials target Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Trump administration was obligated by law to close the office once Palestinians announced plans to take Israeli officials to the ICC. The fact that the Palestinians rejected peace talks was an additional reason for the closure.
Harris also said a Biden administration would increase the number of legal migrants and decriminalize illegal immigration:
We will also raise the annual refugee admissions target to 125,000; protect Dreamers and their families and reverse the public charge rule so we can make sure that permanent resident status isnt contingent on household income. And we will protect civil rights and root out systemic racism across our society, confronting discriminatory policies that target Arab Americans and cast entire communities under suspicion.
The Arab American News reported that the interview was not conducted in person but via email, Democratic vice presidential nominee and California Senator Kamala Harris visited Metro Detroit last Sunday, making a notable, unannounced stop in Dearborn to grab dinner at the Khalaf Grill. The visit by Joe Bidens running mate was just one of several visits by both prominent Democratic and Republican candidates in the last few weeks ahead of the critical upcoming general election. Michigan is often considered a battleground state in presidential elections and Harris visit to garner support from mostly Arab American voters in Dearborn is a testament to their importance in this election.
Palestinian Authority communicating with Biden campaign
Relations with Trump Administration frozen since US recognized Jerusalem as Israels capital.
By MOHAMMAD AL-KASSIM/THE MEDIA LINE NOVEMBER 2, 2020
Two senior Palestinian officials have confirmed to The Media Line that the Palestinian Authority is maintaining direct channels of communication with the campaign of US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a Palestinian-American businessman had helped establish contact between the PA and Biden’s top advisers.
“Having dialogue with the Democratic candidate is important to the leadership, one of the officials told The Media Line. We want to let Mr. Biden know that we are willing and ready to talk.
PA officials have roundly condemned the policies of the incumbent, President Donald Trump. Under Trump, the US recognized Jerusalem as Israels capital and moved its embassy there from Tel Aviv. The PA claims east Jerusalem as the future capital of a Palestinian state.
In response, the Palestinian leaders cut off contact with the Trump Administration and refused to enter US-led talks with Israel under the so-called deal of the century, which they swiftly rejected as biased toward Israel. Washington also terminated millions of dollars of annual financial aid to the PA and ordered the Palestine Liberation Organization office in the American capital shuttered.
The PA has proclaimed that under Trump, the US is no longer an honest broker to mediate peace. Biden, on the other hand, is closely associated with the Obama administration, regarded by Palestinians and most Israelis as having been far-more friendly to Palestinian aspirations.
We are sure that if he wins, he will reassert the US position on the two-state solution and order the PLO office in Washington reopened,” the second PA official told The Media Line.
Jihad Harb, a political analyst for several Palestinian media outlets, says the Palestinians are watching the election campaigns with great interest because whoever wins will have a major impact on the Palestinian cause.
“It is not surprising that there are relations with American parties, he told The Media Line.
The Palestinians have reestablished relations with an important segment of the congressional leadership in the past few years, he emphasized. The Democratic Party has a majority in the House of Representatives, and there are certainly channels of communication.”
Harb says the PA is confident that as president, Biden would work to reopen additional channels for contacts.
“They [Palestinian leaders] definitely want Trump to leave, the analyst explained. He imposed a set of cruel, unfair and anti-Palestinian measures, and therefore they prefer Biden, at least because of their experience with him during his years as vice president in the Obama administration.”
Harb says the PA knows Biden well and would be “ecstatic” to see the Democrat in the White House.
“The Palestinians usually prefer the Democrats, and the Palestinian leadership prefers that the president be from the Democratic Party,” he said.
While Palestinian officials remain circumspect publicly, at least rank and file citizens are openly cheering for Biden, with many using the term catastrophic to describe the specter of a second Trump term.
“He’s the worst American president ever when it comes to the Palestinians,” Fahmi Khalaf, a men’s clothing store owner in the West Bank city of Ramallah, told The Media Line.
“He did all he could to serve Israel. We are aware that American presidents work for Israel, but Trump completely ignored our rights like no other US president,” he stated.
Hassan Awwad, a US-based expert on the Middle East, says it is clear that Palestinian leaders prefer Biden.
Theres no doubt in Palestinian officials minds that a Biden win will mitigate the economic hardship and provide [PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas the ladder [he] desperately needs to climb down from the tree, he told The Media Line.
It is no secret that the Palestinian leadership feels isolated. Three Arab countries are now normalizing ties with Israel, and Ramallahs relations with many key Arab capitals are at best lukewarm.
The PA is thus eager for friendlier relations with Washington to help lift it out of its isolation and make it relevant again.
Khaled Elgindy, a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute in Washington and author of the new book Blind Spot: America and the Palestinians, from Balfour to Trump, says that while Biden and his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, are staunch Israel supporters, they will take a different approach to that of Trump.
A Biden victory come November will no doubt revive hopes for a two-state solution and give Palestinian leaders a much-needed reprieve, he told The Media Line. However, a Biden administration is unlikely to break with past approaches to the conflict or fundamentally alter dynamics on the ground . The difference between a Biden and a Trump administration is a Biden administration will at least rhetorically affirm a commitment to the two-state solution, although he wont make it a huge priority.
Trump abandoned the two-state solution in favor of pushing for diplomatic ties between Israel and Arab countries.
Biden, Elgindy said, has pledged to reverse the most destructive of these policies in a bid to salvage what remains of a two-state solution and restore US-Palestinian relations.
In the event that Trump come out on top, Harb says the PA will work to manage the situation in the best possible way.
“If Trump is reelected, he said, the Palestinians must prepare for another four harsh years.”
Israel funded the wrong side in Syria for the most part
It was enemy of Hezbollah/Iran is my pal
All the more reason for Bibi to have kept quiet
Putin and Assad both supported armed ISIS fighters and Al Qaeda hell Communist Russia has Al Qaeda fighters fighting in Libya paying them with Assad’s own money.
it’s quite the tangled web indeed but BIBI shall face the very judgment by the almighty for going against the land of the God of Abraham Issac Jacob.
