Watching from an Israel aghast, president Trump is just unthinkable, while Clinton has started to look invaluable – David Horowitz – The Times of Israel 09.08.16
Op-ed: As the Republican candidate proves capable of turning on anyone, that hitherto problematic Democratic nominee grows increasingly appealing for a tiny country, in a nasty region, dependent on its ties to the US.
