Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stabbed President Donald Trump in the back on Saturday night by rushing to congratulate Joe Biden after he was prematurely declared president by the media amid a host of recount efforts and legal challenges.
On Sunday morning, Netanyahu released a video where he congratulated Biden and Harris on their victory and then congratulated Trump for doing a bunch of stuff for Israel.
Just two months ago, Donald Trump presented Netanyahu the “Key to the White House.”
The Jerusalem Post said on Election Day that who wins the presidency “doesn’t matter” because “Washington has Israel’s back.”
AIPAC said similar in a video last year.
AIPAC rushed to congratulate Biden and Harris for their “election victory” on Saturday.
From The Times of Israel:
“AIPAC congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their election victory.”
“We also congratulate the elected and re-elected senators and representatives — Democrats and Republicans alike — who will be joining an overwhelmingly pro-Israel Congress,” the pro-Israel lobby says.
“Despite the current profound political polarization, there remains a resolute bipartisan commitment to the U.S.-Israel alliance as both presidential tickets took strong pro-Israel positions. Whatever other issues divide us, America stands with Israel.”
Nancy Pelosi told pro-Israel billionaire and top Democratic donor Haim Saban at the 2018 Israeli American Council National Conference that “if this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain would be our commitment to our aid” to Israel.
There are lessons to be learned here.
Incidentally, while Netanyahu rushed to stab Trump in the back, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador — who was once robbed of an election himself — said Saturday he will not be congratulating either of the US’ presidential “candidates” until all legal issues are resolved and vote tallies are officially certified.
