Un asesor de Trump afirmó que el presidente electo no ve a los asentamientos israelíes como un obstáculo para la paz

Top Israel affairs advisor to president-elect Donald Trump tells Israel’s Army Radio that the his boss doesn’t share the long-held US stance that Israeli settlements should be condemned or they pose an ‘obstacle to peace.’

A top adviser to President-elect Donald Trump says his boss doesn’t think Israeli settlements should be condemned and they don’t pose an «obstacle to peace.»

Jason Greenblatt’s comments to Israel’s Army Radio Thursday would mark a stark departure from the long-time American stance that Israeli construction in areas captured in the 1967 Six Day War makes it more difficult to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians.

Greenblatt is the chief legal officer and executive vice president at the Trump Organization. He has been tapped by Trump as his top adviser on Israel.

Israel and the US are close allies but relations were often tense between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, mainly over Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians. Netanyahu and Trump have been friends for many years and ties between the two are expected to improve.

After Trump was proclaimed the victor of the presidential elections, Netanyahu posted a Facebook video congratulating the president-elect, describing him as a «true friend» and expressed his optimism about elevating the US-Israeli relationship to «new heights.» Later on Netanyahu called Trump, reiterated his belief that he was a «true friend of Israel» and assured him that the US has no greater ally than Israel.

Settler leadership happy with Trump victory
Meanwhile, Trump’s victory has put a new, optimistic wind in the sails of the settlement enterprise in Israel, as right wing MKs and West Bank regional council leaders welcomed the Republican’s election.

Yossi Dagan, head of the Shomron Regional Council, publicly supported Trump, and expressed his hope that a new path will be made in regards to the West Bank settlements.

«I’m sorry to say this, but the decision to build a new park in the West Bank isn’t made by the head of the Regional Council nor by the Israeli government, but on the whims of the President of the United States and how he feels that day,» Dagan said.
