TRUMP DEFENDS 'PRO-ISRAEL' NATIONAL SECURITY HEAD
US President Donald Trump has come to the defense of his embattled national security adviser, currently facing an onslaught of attacks from nationalist forces in the White House seeking his ouster. McMaster has visited Israel at least four times, according to his own accounting, including during Trump’s visit in May.
Right-wing media targeted Gen. (ret.) H.R. McMaster in recent days by citing leaked anecdotes of him referring to Israel as “illegitimate” and an occupying power. McMaster is also dovish on Iran, according to these combative sources, who spoke largely with conservative journalists and commentators such as Breitbart and Conservative Review.
NSC Purge: McMaster ‘Deeply Hostile to Israel and to Trump’Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick wrote Wednesday evening that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is purging pro-Israel staff from the National Security Council (NSC), turning the administration against President Donald Trump’s policies.
She noted that the firings were the latest evidence that NSA McMaster is “deeply hostile to Israel and to Trump”:
- According to senior officials aware of his behavior, he constantly refers to Israel as the occupying power and insists falsely and constantly that a country named Palestine existed where Israel is located until 1948 when it was destroyed by the Jews.
- Many of you will remember that a few days before Trump’s visit to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – בנימין נתניהו and his advisers were blindsided when the Americans suddenly told them that no Israeli official was allowed to accompany Trump to the Western Wall.
- What hasn’t been reported is that it was McMaster who pressured Trump to agree not to let Netanyahu accompany him to the Western Wall. At the time, I and other reporters were led to believe that this was the decision of rogue anti-Israel officers at the US consulate in Jerusalem. But it wasn’t. It was McMaster.
- And even that, it works out wasn’t sufficient for McMaster. He pressured Trump to cancel his visit to the Wall and only visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial – ala the islamists who insist that the only reason Israel exists is European guilt over the Holocaust.
[McMaster] fires all of Trump’s loyalists and replaces them with Trump’s opponents, like Kris Bauman, an Israel hater and Hamas supporter who McMaster hired to work on the Israel-Palestinian desk. He allows anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk around the NSC and tell people what to do and think. He has left Ben (reporters know nothing about foreign policy and I lied to sell them the Iran deal) Rhodes’ and Valerie Jarrett’s people in place’

Interesting Comments to first JPost article above:
Obama would not say "Islamic terrorism", and he gave Susan Rice her security clearance.
McMaster will not say "Islamic terrorism", and he has supported Susan Rice's keeping her security clearance. So, if McMaster is "pro-Israel", it probably is in the same way that Obama was "pro-Israel”.
I know nothing about this reporter, Wilner, but he uses tendentious language here, "nationalist forces" and "right wing media" to describe those seeking McMaster's ouster. Not the best journalism, unless you're writing an opinion piece.
Funny how the Left-wing media (Wilner, Reuters) are all over Trump and his advisors like Jeff Sessions, muckraking and slinging mud when they differ on issues like immigration. While the same media show the greatest reverence for rabid dogs like McMaster when he demonstrates his rank ignorance by referring to Israel as an "illegitimate occupying power”.
A quote from McMaster on joining the Trump administration "You either retire an unorthodox thinker who speaks truth to power or you stay in the Army long enough to become a general.”
[me: in all, this could throw light on the accusation that the “Generals” are circumventing all information to and from Trump. Per my post on EndofDays blog: The Generals, McMaster, Kelly, and ? are cutting off communications channels. See McMaster Purging Key Trump Allies. It seems that Kelly (and a woman he brought along with him) are working against Trump also. This all points to a COUP by the DeepState and Progressive Leftists to get rid of President Trump!]
