US/Trump & Israel: First “official” US Military Base Opens

Had this saved from yesterday:
Jewishnews
United States opens first official outpost in the Jewish state, with operations starting on Monday following a ceremony
Meaning the US has unofficial outposts in Israel. Clearly!
The base started operating Monday following a ceremony at the end of last week to inaugurate the facility that included Israeli and American military personnel. It will operate independently from within an Israeli military base in southern Israel that houses an air Defence school, according to the Israel Defence Forces.

Several dozen American soldiers will be stationed at the base.

“For the first time the flag of the United States, our most important ally, will be raised in an IDF base,” Brigadier Gen. Zvika Haimovich, the IDF’s head of Air Defence, said in a statement. “This expresses more than anything the long-standing partnership and the strategic commitment between the countries and the armies.”

The opening of the base comes a week after a new Iron Dome anti-missile battery became operational.

“There is no coincidence between the two events,” Haimovich said. “They add another layer to the Defence of the State of Israel against the high-trajectory threats that surround us from near and far.”

Planning for the U.S. base began two years ago.
It's not a coincidence that planning for this official base began two years ago either!

I’ll spare everyone the video available at the link.
Trump Meets Netanyahu via the Press Office. Typical tripe.

President Donald J. Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel met today in New York to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel. The President underscored the unwavering commitment of the United States to Israel’s security. The two sides discussed their continued cooperation across a range of issues and stressed their goals of countering Iran’s malign influence in the region and resolving the Syria crisis in a manner consistent with American and Israeli security interests. They also discussed their continuing efforts to achieve an enduring Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, the optimism in the region about peace, and expanding economic opportunities to improve conditions for peace. The President assured the Prime Minister that under his and Ambassador Haley’s leadership, the United States will oppose unfair treatment of Israel at the United Nations.
"resolving the Syria crisis in a manner consistent with American and Israeli security interests"

No concern for the Syrians, Iraqis, Turks, Iranians- It's all about Israel, Israel 2.0 & the US.  All that claimed democracy bringing.... Gone!
