JERUSALEM (AP) — A top Israel official said Monday that his government has never had a more favorable ally in the White House than Donald Trump and therefore it should welcome his administration's forthcoming peace plan regardless of its content.
Michael Oren, the deputy minister for diplomacy in the prime minister's office, said the U.S. president's much-anticipated plan will undoubtedly require Israeli concessions, but that Israel would be foolish to reject it.
JERUSALEM (AP) — A senior Israeli official on Wednesday said he led a secret investigation into 16-year-old Palestinian protest icon Ahed Tamimi and her family, in part because their appearance — including "blond-haired, freckled" children in "Western clothes" — made them seem less like "real" Palestinians.
JERUSALEM (AP) — When Donald Trump was elected president, Israeli nationalists rejoiced that a reputed strong ally would be moving into the White House. But as Trump prepares to visit the region this weekend, apprehension reigns instead.
A diplomatic blowup over the status of Jerusalem, followed by revelations Trump had shared highly classified Israeli intelligence with Russia, has reinforced the president's image as dangerously unpredictable.
