    ‘Trump’s kind of pro-Israel policy is not sustainable,’ critics on the right say after Trump pulls U.S. out of Syria, with even the likes of AIPAC calling out the move

    WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw all U.S. forces from Syria has, for the first time since he entered the White House, led him to face strong criticism from leading pro-Israel groups in Washington.

    The shift comes after two years in which those same groups mostly endorsed his administration’s Middle East policies, with some even claiming that his support for Israel was important enough to justify ignoring aspects of his presidency deemed less than palatable by many in the American Jewish community.

    Trump won praise from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the powerful pro-Israel lobby group, and from other groups supportive of the Israeli government, for his decision to relocate the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He won similar accolades for his decision to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. His administration’s voting record on issues related to Israel and the Middle East in the United Nations also won praise.

    However, AIPAC took to Twitter last week to retweet a number of senators – both Democrats and Republicans – who severely criticized Trump’s decision on Syria. One tweet, by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, described the withdrawal as a “huge mistake.” Another, by Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, called the decision “ill-informed and hasty,” and warned that it will “breathe new life into ISIS and other terrorist groups.”

    It was the first time that AIPAC even tacitly endorsed such strong-worded criticism against Trump since he became president in January 2017. The organization also published its own statement, which, though less critical than those voiced by the senators, still made it clear that the organization saw reasons for concern in Trump’s decision.

    LOL wow. This is very enjoyable.

    Trump has initiated a tectonic shift in the political landscape. Zionists are reeling too.

    Trump is taking on old demons and established monsters. Every monster is screaming in pain and agony. Trump is truly putting America first by pulling out of lost wars.

    Trump: We give Israel billions, it can defend itself in Syria

    “We’re going to take good care of Israel. Israel is going to be good. But we give Israel $4.5 billion a year. And we give them, frankly, a lot more money than that, if you look at the books — a lot more money than that. And they’ve been doing a very good job for themselves,” he added.

    I knew this was going to happen before he got elected.

    So Trump is coming out Bernie Sanders on one Syrian position. Orange monster is still trying to destroy China and Iran, totally destroy China and Iran. So a destroyed Syria, Trump wants to stop beating up to get moral support from the traditionalists. Not falling for Trump's games. Stop trying to destroy Iran and China. Pull out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, no left over bases.

    Then we can talk a pull out of Japan and South Korea too.

    Then there is this:
