Skip to comments.NSC Purge: McMaster ‘Deeply Hostile to Israel and to Trump’
Posted on 08/03/2017 11:09:57 AM PDT by Syncro
Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick wrote Wednesday evening that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is purging pro-Israel staff from the National Security Council (NSC), turning the administration against President Donald Trumps policies.
In a Facebook post, Glick noted that all of these people whom McMaster has fired this week Rich Higgins, Derek Harvey, and Ezra Cohen-Watnick are pro-Israel and oppose the Iran nuclear deal, positions that Trump holds.
She noted that the firings were the latest evidence that NSA McMaster is deeply hostile to Israel and to Trump:
According to senior officials aware of his behavior, he constantly refers to Israel as the occupying power and insists falsely and constantly that a country named Palestine existed where Israel is located until 1948 when it was destroyed by the Jews.
Many of you will remember that a few days before Trumps visit to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu בנימין נתניהו and his advisers were blindsided when the Americans suddenly told them that no Israeli official was allowed to accompany Trump to the Western Wall.
What hasnt been reported: it was McMaster who pressured Trump to agree not to let Netanyahu accompany him to the Western Wall. At the time, I and other reporters were led to believe that this was the decision of rogue anti-Israel officers at the US consulate in Jerusalem. But it wasnt. It was McMaster.
And even that, it works out wasnt sufficient for McMaster. He pressured Trump to cancel his visit to the Wall and only visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial ala the Islamists who insist that the only reason Israel exists is European guilt over the Holocaust.
Glick noted that the three latest firings were not McMasters first attack on pro-Israel officials, or those critical of radical Islam.

This guy and his anti American attitude needs to be "purged"
A lot of solid conservative journalists backing up this story. Way too much smoke for their not to be some fire here, IMO.
The Pres. has no choice. He’s got to get rid of McMaster.
Another Saudi bag boy?
Yes, no reason to doubt it.
This admin is either going to need a whole history text to itself (should we be successful in saving the USA) or it will be written in Arabic one day. And I hate saying this.
I can’t believe he still has a job.
Why is this joker there in the first place?
I would have thought a businessman like President Trump would have the whole research resume, research person, hire and fire thing down pat.
Another military arabist. They are dime a dozen, unfortunately.
Your ignorance is showing
Rush talking about McMaster now.
Don’t know why Trump didn’t purge DC of any/all Obama (and even some Bush) holdovers when he first took office. Now he’s saddled with all of these treasonous lefties that are just making his job more difficult.
Trump said he liked mcmaster?.. Trump might have been like mcmaster at one time in the past... and sees something he can like.. but we didn’t elect mcmaster.. who is doing too much controlling. Trump has not yet caught on that HE IS IN CHARGE and do NOT let these people do the deciding on who goes out the door!! Remember who brought ya’!

Rush is going off on him while I type. Not good about McMasters.
Fire this guy NOW!
[McMaster Deeply Hostile to Israel and to Trump]
WHAT could possibly go wrong?
(deep sigh - literally)
Sorry Bible Prophecy ping list - looks like we needed another one, IMHO
What’s his tone?
Then you have the Senate not really going into recess so Trump cannot make a recess appointment. The Republican party is part of this.
