America’s decline – Israel’s trouble

07 January, 2019

President Trump says the US economy is stronger than it has ever been. And the numbers back him up. Numbers, shmumbers – America is sink­ing. One consequence is that Israel is in trouble.
Why does it impact Israel? It is pretty simple, actually.
The US is Isra­el’s strongest supporter. We have your back, the Americans constantly tell Israeli leaders. We moved our embassy to Jerusalem. But the bigger America’s internal social and econom­ic woes, the less engaged it is in the Middle East and the world. When Israel does need someone at its back, there may be nobody there.
