Count Benjamin Netanyahu among the world leaders who recognize the work being done by President Trump on the international stage. In a recent interview, the Prime Minister took the time to roundly praise President Trump for the work that he’s done and crediting him for making the possibility of peace more likely.
Sitting for an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Netanyahu said:
“He did a great service for peace because peace can only be based on truth, on reality. And denying the simple fact that Israel’s capital is Jerusalem is — pushes peace backward by creating an illusion, a fantasy. You can’t build peace on fantasy.
The seat of government is in Jerusalem. This has been the case for the 70 years of Israel’s existence that we’re celebrating now. Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people since the time of King David. That’s only 3,000 years ago.
Under any peace agreement, you know that the capital of Israel will continue to be Jerusalem, and the seat of our government will continue to be in Jerusalem.”
