A trio of Trump Administration officials have made explosive allegations that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is anti-Israel.
Three West Wing and defense officials told Conservative Review this week that McMaster is vehemently opposed to strengthening relations with America’s greatest ally in the Middle East:
McMaster not only shuns Israel, he is also historically challenged on Arab-Israeli affairs, according to the sources.
“McMaster constantly refers to the existence of a Palestinian state before 1947,” a senior West Wing official tells CR (there was never an independent Palestinian state), adding that McMaster describes Israel as an “illegitimate,” “occupying power.”
The Conservative Review report comes just one day after Caroline Glick, an American-born Israeli journalist with established connections to the Trump Administration, penned a lengthy Facebook post in which she revealed that it was McMaster who pressured President Trump into not allowing Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu to accompany him to Jerusalem’s Western Wall:
Many of you will remember that a few days before Trump’s visit to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 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 hasn’t been reported is that 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 wasn’t. It was McMaster.
And even that, it works out, wasn’t sufficient for McMaster. He pressured Trump to cancel his visit to the Wall and only visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial — a la the Islamists who insist that the only reason Israel exists is European guilt over the Holocaust.
The Israel angle on McMaster’s purge of Trump loyalists from the National Security Council is that all of these people…
Indeed, in May McMaster refused to even acknowledge that the Western Wall was part of Israel.
Since McMaster took over the NSC, seven pro-Israel officials have been removed from the administration: Steve Bannon, K.T. McFarland, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, Derek Harvey, Rich Higgins, Adam Lovinger, and Tera Dahl.
Middle Eastern terrorism is the greatest threat to American national security today. We need a National Security Adviser who believes in and wants to defend Israel – and that’s clearly not McMaster.
