Israel won’t suffer for tight ties with Trump, says ex-UN envoy Danny Danon

When it comes to Israel, Danny Danon says the country’s supporters in the U.S. put their domestic politics aside.

By Associated Press

Israel’s returning ambassador to the United Nations affirmed the country’s bond with the Trump administration Tuesday, dismissing notions that Israel would pay a price for its tight ties with the president.

In his first comprehensive interview since returning from the diplomatic posting, Danny Danon said he was relieved that certain factions in the Democratic Party failed to secure the party’s nomination, adding that Israel can prosper with either President Donald Trump or challenger Joe Biden in the White House.

When it comes to Israel, he says the country’s supporters in the U.S. put their domestic politics aside.

“We have bipartisan support and we value and we cherish it,” he said, at a temporary office near his home in central Israel. “I spoke publicly against Mr. Bernie Sanders. But he wasn’t elected. Mr. Biden is a friend of Israel and he proved it over the years. So, yes, we hear those voices, the radical voices, but they’re not the majority in the Democratic Party.”

According to Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of the far-left J Street lobbying group in Washington, which has close ties to the Democratic Party, Israeli officials would be making a “huge mistake” to expect that all of the clashes with Barack Obama and close ties with Trump will be forgotten if Biden is elected president.

Netanyahu has emerged as one of Trump’s strongest international allies after openly clashing with Obama, who is rumored to have harbored personal animosity for the Israeli leader, according to attorney Alan Dershowitz.

During Trump’s time in office, Netanyahu has enjoyed a slew of diplomatic achievements, most notably recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the moving of the American embassy there.

The Democratic Party recently unveiled its Middle East platform, which largely adhered to its traditional approach of calling for a two-state solution. But the party’s so-called “progressive” wing, led by Sanders, has urged that American military aid be conditioned on changes in Israeli policy, including jettisoning its plans to extend sovereignty over Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Netanyahu dispatched Danon to serve as ambassador to the United Nations, a position that 30 years earlier launched Netanyahu’s own political career.

Danon worked closely with his U.S. counterparts, including the former ambassador Nikki Haley, and forged close ties with Arab ambassadors, especially from Gulf states that do not have formal relations with Israel. He also took pride in becoming the first Israeli elected to head a permanent U.N. committee, despite the “hostile” environment at the international body.

Armed with that new perspective after five years in New York, Danon said he is eager to get back into the Israeli political game and hinted that he considers himself a potential successor to Netanyahu.

“Eventually, there will be another leader of the Likud,” said the soft-spoken Danon. “I support the prime minister. But at the same time, in the Likud party, I think we have to think about the future, about the next generation.”

谈到以色列,丹尼·达农说,该国在美国的支持者把国内政治放在一边

美联社

以色列回国大使周二肯定了该国与特朗普政府的联系,驳斥了以色列将为与总统的紧密联系付出代价的说法。

丹尼·达农(Danny Danon)在从外交职位返回以来的首次全面采访中说,他对民主党中的某些派系未能确保该党的提名感到宽慰,并补充说,以色列可以在白宫与唐纳德·特朗普总统或挑战者乔·拜登一起繁荣。

他说,谈到以色列,该国在美国的支持者将其国内政治放在一边。

他在以色列中部家附近的临时办公室说:“我们得到了两党的支持,我们珍视并珍惜它。” “我公开反对伯尼·桑德斯先生。但是他没有当选。拜登先生是以色列的朋友,多年来他证明了这一点。因此,是的,我们听到了那些声音,激进声音,但他们并不是民主党的多数。”

与民主党有密切联系的华盛顿极左街游说团体主席杰里米·本·阿米(Jeremy Ben-Ami)表示,以色列官员将犯下“巨大错误”,指望与巴拉克·奥巴马(Barack Obama)和如果拜登当选总统,与特朗普的紧密联系将被遗忘。

根据律师艾伦·德肖维茨(Alan Dershowitz)的说法,内塔尼亚胡在公开与奥巴马发生冲突之后,已成为特朗普最强大的国际盟友之一。奥巴马据传对以色列领导人怀有个人仇恨。

在特朗普任职期间,内塔尼亚胡取得了一系列外交成就,其中最著名的是承认耶路撒冷为以色列的首都,以及美国大使馆迁往那里。

民主党最近宣布了其中东平台,该平台在很大程度上遵循了要求两国解决方案的传统做法。但是以桑德斯为首的该党所谓的“进步”派已敦促美国的军事援助应以以色列政策的改变为条件,包括放弃其扩大对犹太和撒玛利亚犹太社区主权的计划。

内塔尼亚胡(Natanyahu)派遣达农(Danon)担任联合国大使,这一职位在30年前启动了内塔尼亚胡(Natanyahu)自己的政治生涯。

达农与包括前大使尼基 · 海利在内的美国同行密切合作,并与阿拉伯大使,特别是与以色列没有正式关系的海湾国家建立了密切联系。尽管国际机构处于“敌对”的环境,但他还是成为第一位当选为联合国常设委员会主席的以色列人而感到自豪。

达农在纽约呆了五年后,有了这种新观点,他表示他渴望回到以色列的政治游戏中,并暗示他认为自己是内塔尼亚胡的潜在继任者。

口语淡淡的达农说:“最终,利库德集团将有另一名领导人。” “我支持总理。但同时,在利库德党中,我认为我们必须考虑未来,下一代。”
