While Americans observed the Memorial Day holiday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu conceded to demands by his Education Minister (and former chief of staff) Naftali Bennett that cleared the way for the approval of Avigdor Lieberman as defense minister.Many in Israel will also be skeptical and wonder how Trump's promise to nix the Iran deal would actually advance Israel's interests. And while bipartisan U.S. support for aid to Israel seems firm, it is not clear in what direction Trump's "America First" foreign policy might careen should vocal Trump constituents begin to focus on the levels of aid Israel receives from the United States. All this is complicated further by the ongoing negotiations to renew the U.S.-Israel 10-year defense agreement, where Netanyahu seems to be trying to figure out whether he should drag the negotiations out until there is a new U.S. president.Former President Bill Clinton remains enormously popular in Israel.This will probably not be much of an issue as the Israelis could blame it on U.S. President Barack Obama.
