President Donald Trump “stood up for Israel at the U.N. in a remarkable way – rock solid support,” Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu declared Thursday.

In remarks prior to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Netanyahu expressed his nation’s eternal gratitude for Trump’s support in “a house of slander against Israel and the United States” – the United Nations:

“Mr. President, I want to say something, because this is the first meeting we’ve had since your historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the embassy, and now to expedite the movement of the embassy, to Jerusalem.

“I want to say that this is a historic decision that will be forever etched in the hearts of our people for generations to come.  People say that this pushes peace backward.  I say it pushes peace forward because it recognizes history, it recognizes the present reality, and peace can only be built on the basis of truth.  And by recognizing this history, you’ve made history.  And we will always remember that.”

You stood up for Israel at the U.N. in a remarkable way — rock-solid support.  This is a place — it’s a house of slander against Israel and against the United States.  And by word and deed, you have told them enough is enough.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu also pledged his nation’s staunch support of Trump’s opposition to the Iran nuclear deal – even if he decides to “walk away from it”:

“We also support you completely in your stalwart position on the Iran nuclear deal.  You’ve said it’s a disastrous deal.  You’ve said that if its fatal flaws are not fixed, that you should walk away from it. 

“And I want you to know that if you decide to do that, then we will back you all the way.”
