Trump Meets Netanyahu, Affirms Jerusalem as Capital
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu departs a meeting with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Sept. 25, 2016 in New York.
Sunday, 25 Sep 2016
Donald Trump met with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu privately at the GOP nominee’s Trump Tower on Sunday, vowing to “finally accept the longstanding congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.”
In a statement from the Trump campaign, they also discussed “at length Israel’s successful experience with a security fence” – an issue Trump has made a cornerstone of his campaign – as well as “the nuclear deal with Iran, the battle against ISIS and many other regional security concerns.”
Netanyahu was accompanied to the meeting by Israel’s ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, and Trump was joined by his son-in-law Jared Kushner, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Netanyahu is scheduled to meet Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton later Sunday before flying back to Israel.
In the statement, Trump described U.S. military assistance to Israel as an “excellent investment,” and Middle East peace can only be achieved when “the Palestinians renounce hatred and violence and accept Israel as a Jewish State.”
“A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning Israel.
“The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: ‘I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.…
“On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.…
“On that day the Lord will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord going before them. On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.'”
(Zechariah 12:1-8, NIV)
