The Algemeiner reports: Following the election of Donald Trump, Israel has a chance bolster its relationship with America, an ex-IDF intelligence chief said on Tuesday.
“Israel can try to influence the new administration’s Middle East policy and assume a central and valuable role,” Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin — director of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) at Tel Aviv University — wrote in an analysis published on the INSS website.
First and foremost, Yadlin noted, there is a need to rebuild a “mutual sense of trust between the US administration and the Israeli government.” However, Yadlin went on to say, “It is imperative that Israel not be identified as a ‘Republican issue’…Israel must strive to reestablish itself as a bipartisan American issue.”
