The man who organized the video endorsement and the interview was 30-year-old British-born public relations phenom Jonny Daniels, who runs the Holocaust commemoration organization From The Depths and is arguably the Israeli closest to Trump. . . .
“It is very good news for Israel that he will be the Republican candidate for president, because we really do have a good friend in Donald Trump,” Daniels said. “I’m not sure people realize who he is beyond his media persona. He is a politician playing politics, and there are certain things you do and say for votes, and if it’s inflammatory so be it. Netanyahu and Obama have also reached out to their voter base, and that’s what Trump has been doing.”
Meanwhile, the editor of the Weekly Standard, supposedly a friend of Israel, is trying to organise a different candidate from the right. These are the friends of Hillary and therefore the deepest most implacable enemies of Israel, not to mention the United States: Mitt Romney met privately with William Kristol, who is leading the effort to draft an independent candidate. If you want to know why Republicans are beyond useless, this is hard to beat:
Thursday, both Kristol and Romney attended an awards gala for American Friends of The Hebrew University, an area group that supports the Jerusalem-based school.
At the dinner, when asked in front of the attendees about possibly running as an independent this year, Romney said he was not interested.
“No, I’m certainly going to be hoping that we find someone who I have my confidence in who becomes nominee. I don’t intend on supporting either of the major-party candidates at this point,” Romney said, according to the Washington Examiner.
But, Romney added, “I am dismayed at where we are now, I wish we had better choices, and I keep hoping that somehow things will get better, and I just don’t see an easy answer from where we are.”
Thursday, that is AFTER Trump had locked the nomination process up. Whose side are these people on, because it does not appear to be on the same side as those who support the long-term survival of the Israeli state.
