Two days after taking the office of the Unitied States presidency, Donald Trump was on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The PM asked to "work closely" with Trump, especially in matters that relate to Israel's security, including Iran, the Palestinians and "other issues." He also asked for restoration of the US policy, abandoned by Obama, of "no daylight" between Israel and the US.
In the opinion of Israeli officials, what does the election of Donald J. Trump mean for the Jewish State? The bottom line is that he is a mystery, and Israelis don't like mysteries or surprises.
