President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu are taking the U.S-Israel relationship to new heights. President Trump clearly wants PM Netanyahu to win on September 17th. The Israelis would be wise to make sure that happens.
TRUMP DISCUSSED ‘MUTUAL DEFENSE TREATY’ BETWEEN ISRAEL, U.S. WITH NETANYAHU
By Jerusalem Post, September 14, 2019:
Israel and the United States are discussing a mutual defense pact, US President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday.
Following a phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump tweeted: “I had a call today with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the possibility of moving forward with a Mutual Defense Treaty, between the United States and Israel, that would further anchor the tremendous alliance between our two countries. I look forward to continuing those discussions after the Israeli Elections when we meet at the United Nations later this month!”

Trump’s tweet comes three days ahead of Israel’s election on Tuesday. Haaretz reported last week that Netanyahu is looking for a dramatic gesture from the US president that would return him to office following the September 17 poll.
While the idea of a US-Israel defense pact has been discussed on and off for several decades, it has re-emerged in recent months. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) broached the proposal in June at a dinner hosted by the Endowment for Middle East Truth, saying he wanted Israel to be added to the list of countries with which the US has treaty obligations.
“I think it is important to send a signal in the 21st century: If you are intending to destroy Israel, you have to go through us, and it will not turn out well for you,” he said.
