It should have been no surprise, especially to the Democratic Party, that at the Republican National Convention (RNC), there would be a strong and sharp response to the Democrats’ refusal to recognize the dangerous position that the Squad and all of their supporters have put America and all of its citizens in. From day one of the RNC, speaker after speaker gave those who support terrorism, violence, attacks on Israel and defunding the police as well as opening US borders, just to name a few examples, a strong verbal dose of their own medicine.
And with regard to the defense of Israel, no one said it better than former US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley and US Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo. To add insult to injury to the Democrats, Mike was standing on the roof of the historic King David Hotel when he said it.
I have fond memories of the King David Hotel, where I would meet with clients when I worked at the Bank Leumi International Private Banking Branch located in the building next door. At that time, I became friendly with the Assistant Branch Manager named Yoni. He was one of the first soldiers who entered the Western Wall of the Old City when it was captured from the Jordanians. I would listen to his many stories (after working hours) that Yoni would tell about what it was like when Israel became victorious. And it made me proud that Mike Pompeo decided to give his speech from that historic site which is a very short distance from the Old City as can be seen on the video.
Mike Pompeo’s 2020 RNC Speech –
“Hi. I’m Mike Pompeo,” he began in the pre-taped speech that was recorded in Israel near twilight on the roof of the King David Hotel. “I’m speaking to you from beautiful Jerusalem, looking out over the Old City.”
Pompeo delivered standard recitations of GOP claims about the successes of Trump’s “America First” foreign policy against Russia, China and Iran. He said they made his family — wife Susan and son Nick — and all Americans safer. He spoke of the defeat of the Islamic State’s physical caliphate and Trump’s pro-Israel agenda.
Trump is counting on the support of conservative American Jews and the evangelical Christian community in November, and the choice of Jerusalem — along with the backdrop of the religiously significant Old City — for Pompeo’s speech was clearly aimed at them. In addition, he gave President Trump credit for helping broker the UAE – Israel Peace deal.
Nikki Haley’s 2020 RNC Speech
You can view Nikki’s speech at the link below-
Nikki has consistently been a strong supporter of the Jewish people and Israel. She knows the difference between right and wrong and can easily see how wrong the Democratic Party is by supporting the Squad. Haley did a nice job of pointing that out during her speech.
Haley harshly criticized former US president Obama’s foreign policy in relation to America’s long-standing friendship with Israel. She said-
“Obama and Biden led the United Nations to denounce our friend and ally, Israel. President Trump moved our embassy to Jerusalem… and when the UN tried to condemn us, I was proud to cast the American veto.”
Later in Haley’s speech she said the following-
When Joe was VP, I was governor of the great state of South Carolina. We had a pretty good run. Manufacturers of all kinds flocked to our state from overseas, creating tens of thousands of American jobs. People were referring to South Carolina as “the beast of the southeast,” which I loved.
“Everything we did happened in spite of Joe Biden and his old boss.We cut taxes. They raised them. We slashed red tape. They piled on more mandates. And when we brought in good-paying jobs, Biden and Obama sued us. I fought back… and they gave up.”
A Biden-Harris administration would be much, much worse. Last time, Joe’s boss was Obama… this time, it would be Pelosi, Sanders, and the Squad. Their vision for America is socialism. And we know that socialism has failed everywhere.
“They want to tell Americans how to live… and what to think. They want a government takeover of health care. They want to ban fracking and kill millions of jobs. They want massive tax hikes on working families”.
“Joe Biden and the socialist left would be a disaster for our economy. But President Trump is leading a new era of opportunity.”
And Haley continued to note the violence on America’s streets that was not present in her State 5 years ago.
If You Support Israel Your Choice Is Simple
From the time the members of “The Squad” showed their true colors by supporting the Palestinians and refusing to recognize the terror campaign the Palestinian Authority has continued to encourage against my fellow Israelis, a major shift in Policy against Israel has now been established within the Democratic Party.
The Democratic Party had always been a strong Israel supporter; that is until Obama became President. It’s quite sad that the first Black US President could not accept Israel in the same way Americans accepted him.
It should be quite obvious that the only party capable of defending US interests in the Middle East in general and Israel in particular are the Republicans.
Israel is counting on America to make the right choice in the upcoming election.
