Chemi Shalev: Trump’s Triumphs Demolish Netanyahu’s Fortress GOP Strategy – Haaretz 

In the outgoing dogmatic GOP, Trump’s equivocations would have earned him a place in the all-time rogues gallery of Enemies of the Jewish People, somewhere between Obama and Father Coughlin. Today, Evangelicals shrug them off and continue to vote for Trump, as they did this week in Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.

Every time Cruz and Rubio try to hit Trump over the head with an Israel club and nothing happens, it is Israel’s weakness that is exposed. Every time Trump wins a party primary without challenge from his supporters, another nail is driven into the coffin of the unshakeable alliance between Israel and America’s deep right.

    • Don’t confuse bad news for Bibi with bad news for Israel.

      One thing Trump and Trumpists are not, and that’s the deep right. And Israel, though not Bibi, still have plenty of widespread, solid support throughout the US poltical landscape. Even Debbie W-S went out of her way to weigh in on the Iran deal in a manner against the current administration and in a way which put the pres candidate she’s rigging the game for in a quandary.

      The foreign government over in that region who should be most worried about what the Trump campaign means are the Saudis. They’re the ones with the most chickens that could come home to roost if US support goes wibbly wobbly.
