Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister since 2009 and a longtime ally of the United States, has created global shockwaves with a sudden resignation announcement.
According to reports, Netanyahu is leaving his post as foreign minister, a post he’s held since 2015, in order to focus on his role as prime minister and other ministerial positions.
His decision came as the result of a petition to the High Court by a group called the Movement for Quality Government, which claimed Netanyahu couldn’t handle being prime minister, managing his health, and conducting his other duties effectively.
Netanyahu is facing an election in early April, and it’s clear that America still has no better friend and ally in the fight for freedom and against radical Islamic terrorism.
In a short amount of time, President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu have formed a strong bond, with both pledging to maintain and grow the relationship between America and Israel.
Alongside Netanyahu last fall, Trump said that “the American-Israeli alliance has never been stronger. It’s stronger than ever before under your leadership. And I look forward to working with you and your team to advance our common interest”.
