Does Trump and Netanyahu's special relationship serve or harm the US? | Inside Story



The decision to bar two Congresswomen from entering Israel has sent shockwaves through both countries.
The denial of entry to Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar has been condemned by top US democrat politicians.
It’s also been criticised by a pro-Israel lobbying group.
Tlaib and Omar had planned to visit Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories this weekend.
President Donald Trump had called for the two lawmakers to be blocked, ahead of Israel banning them.
The U.S. president has in recent months taken decisions that many say have given Netanyahu much political support.
But what does that mean for the long-term ties between the U.S. and Israel?

Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom

Guests
Fleur Hassan-Nahoum, Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem and a member of the Likud party.
Ariel Gold, National co-director of activist group Code Pink.
Gideon Levy, Columnist at Haaretz newspaper.

Gideon Levy is spot on well done for speaking out the truth to the situation. Every villain needs a lacky and Trump is just the perfect candidate for one because his God is $ and nothing comes close.

People are waking up from the deception. millenials will be hard to convince them that israel is an ally. Being critical of israel gov is not antisemiism. americans seems to have taken the deception with both hands. no american politician can critizise israel. they are owned by israel. do you know they sign an agreement to support israel for them to get funds? an avaerage american doesnt know this about their politicians

It serves the very wealthy quite well…Not so for basically everyone else. Most learned people in the country know that Israel and specifically Netanyahu continues to steal more and more Palestinian land. So as usual our government and our popular media act as if the entire country is behind Israel when in fact a huge percentage of people disagree. Some disagree so strongly that they cannot stand to see the USA allow Israel to openly disregard international law. Our stupid politicians get rich and don't care much for the peoples true opinions…In reality probably half of the USA is for… Read more »

If Israel was acting with diplomacy and aka Netanyahu did a 180 degrees on his platform regarding human rights maybe there wouldn’t be such a discrepancy. This PM is not allowing the international criminal court to go into Israel to do an investigation. Then POTUS takes away a visa of an icc person. What are they hiding. Oh yes. Collusion. (((Russia))). Israel was. The only deal. Trump Hotels in Trump Heights and all over Israel wait and see

Trumps speech was written by Netanyahu word for word. The world knows Israel is murdering Palestinians it’s just the Americans that have been brainwashed to believe different .

To paraphrase what she said about Trump in front of children: "Tlaib" is a father-f*cker." (Omar's just as bad.)

these two muslim, soros puppets are no friends of israel or the united states. their interest is only in spreading muslim idioigy and to cause disention here, as well as israel. in reality, the only friend the palestinians have in the middle east, is israel and no country in the world, would put up with a group like the palestianians who call for their destruction. israel has accepted every peace proposal suggested by several world leaders, the palestinians have rejected every one. why should israel want these two muslim women in their country, when we don't want them in ours?

all that makes israel significant in US eyes is AIPAC dollars. America has no interest in the region in practical terms.
