  1. I’d give Trump better odds than a snowball in hell in this regard. Clinton was an obvious status-quo kinda gal, with all sorts of links (including Saban in this particular issue) – and probably wouldn’t have changed a thing (a bit more pro-Israel status-quo than Obama).

    Trump is a wildcard. He might ignore the issue entirely (and his underlings may or may not ignore it). He might be very pro-Israel. Or he might actually surprise and act the other way.

    Bibi would’ve been happier with Clinton – Bibi hates uncertainity, and if there is one thing that is certain it is that American foriegn policy is far from certain at this point in time. Trump is bringing back the Nixon-Kessinger madman theory as a policy –

    Which is, umm, not a so fun thing to deal with when you are on the receiving side.

    1. Your comment seems to ignore history and facts on the ground. Clinton (as Secretary of State) and Obama tried immediately after inauguration 8 years ago to broker a peace agreement. Bibi went to the Republishits to derail the effort. Two years later, when the Republishits gained congressional majorities, they actively meddled in foreign affairs on Israel’s behalf, even inviting Bibi to address Congress. Sheldon Adelstein, who has played a major role in reducing civil discourse in Israel, is a strong Trump supporter.
