-In vizita la Tel Aviv, Trump cauta sa uneasca Israelul cu Arabia Saudita folosind o retorica anti-Iran.

Netanyahu si Trump au cazut de-acord ca „Iranul trebuie sa inceteze de-a mai finanta si echipa pe teroristi”! (Adica pe cine/care?GV) US si Israelul nu vor permite niciodata ca Iraul sa aibe „bomba nucleara”! (Israelul are in schimb   voie!)

Tryst in Tel Aviv: Trump Tries to Unite Israel, Saudis With Anti-Iran Rhetoric

Donald Trump arrived in Israel and attempted to foster some unity between his hosts and Saudi Arabia, declaring they share a common enemy – Iran.

When US President Donald Trump arrived in Tel Aviv on Monday, he was greeted warmly by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu despite Israel’s displeasure over the huge arms deal Trump clinched with Saudi Arabia on Saturday, worth up to $350 billion.”Saudi Arabia is a hostile country and we must ensure that Israel’s qualitative military edge is preserved,” Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said before a cabinet meeting on Sunday, adding that Washington should have consulted with Israel before inking the deal.

„Hundreds of millions of dollars in weapons deals is something we should receive explanations about.”

When he arrived in Israel, following his two-day trip to Saudi Arabia, Trump was quick to offer the Israelis justification for the deal.

Following a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Trump appealed to the anti-Iran sentiment in both Israel and Saudi Arabia. He related his meetings with Saudi leaders and declared that Israel and Saudi Arabia have a common goal – to deter „the threat posed by Iran,” the US President said.

„Maybe because they feel so good, they can do what they want… (but) Iran will never have nuclear weapons, that I can tell you,” Trump told the Israeli leader.

Shortly after Trump’s comments, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani dismissed the criticism and said the country would continue its missile program.

„The Iranian nation has decided to be powerful. Our missiles are for peace and for defense… American officials should know that whenever we need to technically test a missile, we will do so and will not wait for their permission,” Rouhani told a news conference, broadcast live on state TV.

The US President has some way to go before he can persuade Israel and Saudi Arabia, which have no diplomatic relations, to join forces against Iran.When the US State Department published a video in Arabic about Trump’s upcoming visit to the Middle East, officials left out the fact that he would be following his trip to Saudi Arabia with a visit to Israel.

Trump’s visit to Israel comes amid a cooling of the enthusiasm that initially greeted his election, as a result of his staunch pro-Israeli stance. Trump made a campaign pledge to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and Israeli officials have reportedly been putting pressure on the White House to follow through on the promise.

According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Israeli officials are also less than impressed that Trump is slated to spend only 15 minutes at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial on Tuesday, which will give the US President time for little more than a photo opportunity as he lays a wreath.

Both Israel and the US hope the visit can smooth over other recent disagreements. According to Foreign Policy, Israeli intelligence officers told their US counterparts they are „horrified” about Trump’s alleged disclosure of sensitive information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak at the White House.Last week, the Washington Post claimed — citing unnamed sources — that Trump allegedly disclosed highly sensitive information about how terrorist organizations plan to use laptops as bombs on airplanes.

On Monday, the US President told reporters in Israel that he never mentioned Israel during the meeting with the Russian officials.

„I never mentioned the word or the name Israel. Never mentioned during that conversation,” Trump told reporters before the meeting with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as televised by the C-SPAN broadcaster.

Trump’s visit to Israel will last through Tuesday. Following the talks with Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday, Trump is expected to meet Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem in the central West Bank on the following day.

The president will discuss bilateral relations and Israeli-Palestinian conflict with both leaders separately.


Trump: US, Israel Agree Iran Must Cease ‘Funding, Equipping of Terrorists’

The United States and Israel share the same view that Iran must cut its ties with „terrorists and militias,” US President Donald Trump said Monday upon arrival to Israel, a day after blaming Tehran for supporting extremists at an international summit.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Sunday, during the Arab Islamic American Summit in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, Trump said Iran had been supporting terrorists, militias and extremist groups that „spread destruction and chaos across the region” and that Tehran was fueling „the fires of sectarian conflict and terror.”The US president accused Iran of providing „safe harbor, financial backing, and the social standing needed for recruitment” to the terrorists, while at the same time mentioning Tehran’s alleged vows to bring destruction of Israel and the United States.

„The United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran… must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias,” Trump said in a statement upon his arrival to Israel.

Trump‘s visit to Israel will last through Tuesday. The president is expected to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem in the central West Bank on the following day.

US President Donald Trump has said the United States and Israel will never allow Iran to have nuclear weapons, even though the Islamic Republic has already made it very clear that it has no desire or program to develop one.

“The United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon – never, ever – and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias, and it must cease immediately,” Trump said after a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin in Jerusalem al-Quds on Monday.

Trump flew to Israel from Riyadh earlier in the day where he told a gathering of Muslim and Arab leaders that the United States seeks “a coalition of nations” to stamp out extremism in the Middle East.

While speaking in the Saudi capital on Sunday, the US president attacked Iran and accused the Islamic Republic of being the source of “so much instability in the region.” He said, „For decades Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror.”

Trump told the Israeli president on Monday he was very encouraged by his conversations with Arab leaders.

„Many expressed their resolve to help end terrorism and the spread of radicalization. Many Muslim nations have already taken steps to begin following through on this commitment,” he said.

Israelis, Arabs have ‘common cause’ against Iran

„There is a growing realization among your Arab neighbors that they have common cause with you in the threat posed by Iran,” Trump told Rivlin.

Trump’s anti-Iran rhetoric comes as the longstanding Western dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program was settled after the conclusion of a landmark nuclear agreement in 2015. UN Security Council Resolution 2231 also endorsed the nuclear deal, which went into effect in January 2016.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has also confirmed Iran’s commitment to the terms of the nuclear agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China – plus Germany started implementing the JCPOA on January 16, 2016.

The deal limited parts of Iran’s peaceful nuclear program in exchange for the complete removal of all sanctions against the country.

But despite all this, Trump has adopted a hostile policy towards Iran since his inauguration on January 20.

He has repeatedly vowed to cancel the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group, and his administration has imposed new sanctions on multiple Iranian individuals and entities.

Trump selected Saudi Arabia for his first overseas trip and Israel, the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, for his second destination. According to observers, this signals that the US president is willing to embrace the regimes that are accused of widespread human rights violations, and are considered main sponsors of terrorism in the Middle East.
