The prospects of a new United States President and better Israeli-United States relations may be cut short by Prime Minister Netanyahu no longer being the Israeli Prime Minister

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: What about the possibility of the Israeli government and the United States once again having good relations, they haven’t had them for the last 8 years. What’s the prospect for that happening with the new Trump administration?

DD: Actually it’s becoming more dependent everyday on what happens in Israel because as America is about to inaugurate a new president the Israeli leader Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is under intense attack inside his own country. We may not have Benjamin Netanyahu as the leader and then of course the question is who would take over in Israel and would that person get along with Donald Trump.

If it remains Bibi Netanyahu which personally I hope it does; if it remains him then we can predict pretty good relations between the two men, they already have gotten off to a pretty good start. 

JD: Let me just give you a number of items; a list of those things that may happen under a Trump administration for example, the embassy of the United States being moved from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem.

DD: Well that’s an extremely popular position and whoever was the leader of Israel would welcome that even the left wing people in Israel, the labor party etc. want to see the embassy move because Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. That’s where the Knesset and the parliament is, so it’s just a fact on the ground and for anybody to recognize that is just common sense.

JD: Iranian nuclear deal

DD: Well it’s looking like the people around Trump are less willing to see the treaty end. It seems to be pretty firmly embedded and we’ll see if that actually is going to be reversed on the part of the US administration.

JD: What about the peace process?

DD: Well we have to get over this meeting in Paris. The world leaders gathering there Mahmoud Abbas again saying he’s going to push for a unilateral Palestinian state to simply be declared and recognized by the United Nations. There’s so many obstacles to overcome to bring a final peace. Doesn’t’ look like we’re anywhere near peace.

JD: President Trump at his inauguration invited some of the leaders of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria. How’s Trump going to deal with the Jewish settlements?

DD: Well his appointment of the US ambassador, a man known to support the Jewish right to live in Judea and Samaria and all around Jerusalem, is certainly a significant site of where he is heading on that issue. I think he’s going to be far more sympathetic to Israel building, to natural expansion of Jewish communities and these sorts of things that have been going on than Barack Obama has been.

JD: David Dolan with that report and a focus on what’s happening in Jerusalem.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled.

You know world leaders will come and go however, God’s plan and protection for the Jewish state of Israel is now and forever. God will use human government in the future, Revelation 17:17 to direct the future program for the Jewish state of Israel.
