Netanyahu Backs Trump's Wall as A 'Great Idea'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was defended against corruption charges this week by former NY mayor and Donald Trump's unofficial cyber security adviser Rudy Giuliani.

Earlier this week, Trump used the Israeli wall as an example of why he wanted to build a similar wall for the US.

Since he won the presidential election in November past year, Donald Trump has appointed a right-wing hawk to the post of USA ambassador to Israel.

And to compete against a player who knows his game best, Sydney Morning Herald said Federer needs to conquer his self-doubt first. This is Nadal's fifth time in the semis as he prevented Raonic from matching his record of last year's tournament.

In a phone conversation with Netanyahu Sunday, Trump "emphasized that peace between Israel and the Palestinians can only be negotiated directly between the two parties, and that the United States will work closely with Israel to make progress towards that goal", according to a White House readout of the call. That is exactly what presidents since then have done - including Bill Clinton, who in 1992 endorsed "the principle of moving our embassy to Jerusalem", and George W. Bush, who said in 2000 that "as soon as I take office I will begin the process of moving the USA ambassador to the city Israel has chosen as its capital". "Great success. Great idea", Netanyahu wrote in English on Twitter, Trump's preferred method of communication. It stopped all illegal immigration. "We do not express a position on US-Mexico relations".

The meeting followed the Obama administration's stunning reversal last month which allowed the Security Council to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as a "flagrant violation" of worldwide law.

Israel announced a major settlement expansion in the days after Trump's Jan 20 inauguration.

Such a measure could affect Mexico's exports to the United States, its top trading partner. Trump was expected to meet with Nieto Jan. 31.

"I'm going to deliver permits for thousands of homes in Jerusalem in the coming months", Turgeman said.

Netanyahu said this week that 2,500 housing units in the West Bank have been given the go-ahead.

Flanagan said "Ireland remains steadfast in its support for a comprehensive two state solution which protects the future of both the Palestinian and Israeli peoples".

2nd week of Trump confirmations off to bumpy start
Trump had selected a "swamp Cabinet" full of billionaires and bankers whose ethics and business records retired extra scrutiny. Schumer said it's possible that other non-controversial nominees also could come up for a vote as early as Friday.
