Putting annexation row behind them, Netanyahu, Trump set March meet

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with US President Donald Trump next month when he visits Washington for the annual AIPAC confab, a White House official said Wednesday.

The meeting will come after the White House shot down Netanyahu’s assertion Monday that the US and Israel were discussing proposals for Israel to annex West Bank settlements, marking an unprecedented rebuke of the prime minister by the Trump administration.

The AIPAC conference, an annual gathering of pro-Israel figures, is scheduled from March 4-6 in Washington.

An official told Israel’s Hadashot news that the annexation kerfuffle “is already water under the bridge and has no consequence to our relationship with Netanyahu.”

Netanyahu’s comment Monday was made at a faction meeting of his right-wing Likud party, whose top body unanimously passed a resolution in December urging its leaders to formally annex parts of the West Bank and allow unlimited construction in the settlements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time an Israeli Prime Minister makes the pilgrimage to DC, I get somewhat nervous; but this particular meeting between President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu, has me literally close to an industrial-strength panic attack.

And why?!?

First, because Netanyahu may be charged with corruption charges, which makes him a politically wounded animal; and the "human animal" is at their most dangerous when they are politically wounded.

The same holds true for Netanyahu; and that will probably escalate the timetable for more attacks on Syria; Lebanon, and perhaps Iran.

Secondly, it is at these kinds of meetings where the President "signs off" on just how much mayhem he or she would "greenlight" for Israel in their next phase of grabbing more territory to itself.

This meeting comes in about 3 weeks; and these two have a very tight friendship.

But I very strongly caution the President about making any moves to greenlight any actions against Iran, or commiting to US troops to fighting in order to accomplish regime change in Tehran.

Tel Aviv wants to see this happen; however, primarily at the costs of American blood, and American money.

We'll know what transpired between the two probably the middle of next month, courtesy of movements both in the air, and on the ground in the Middle East, in terms of military activity we see by either Israel and/or the US.
