World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder has commended US President Donald J. Trump for underscoring during his official address at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem the Jewish people’s historic ties to the Land of Israel, and for declaring commitment to the security of the State of Israel and to helping Israelis and Palestinians reach a mutual and comprehensive peace agreement.

“As we prepare to mark 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem, President Trump stood in the historic capital of Israel today and made clear to the world that the US recognizes the Jewish people’s ancient and eternal ties to this holy land. President Trump stood in Jerusalem today and made clear to the world that the United States will not tolerate terrorism nor attempts to undermine Israel’s security.

“I share his belief that it is possible to reach a peaceful settlement in the region without compromising Israel’s security, and I share his hope that we can one day rid the region of extremism and oppression.

“As the president said during his visit to Yad Vashem, reiterating the powerful message he gave to the World Jewish Congress last month, the State of Israel is a beacon of light that arose from the darkest depths of the Holocaust and the attempts to wipe out the Jewish people. President Trump recognises that this horror must never be allowed to happen again, neither to the Jewish people nor to any other people in the world.

“President Trump’s remarks in Jerusalem this week are a testament to the unbreakable bond that has long existed between the United States of America and the State of Israel. The United States is and always has been a great friend of Israel and of the Jewish people, and I am grateful to the president for emphasising this during his trip to Israel.”

    Amazing how opinions can differ, I guess it’s all in the eyes of the beholder.
    I know which one I would choose.

    I thank God for since the beginning realizing his vision given by God, beyond what the politicians of all walks and the Media could see. I always loved Trump because of Israel. God is my witness.Our God, the God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel is a faithful God. Halleluyah!
