US President Donald Trump, congratulating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the nearing 70th Israeli independence day, which also marks the Palestinian Nakba (Exodus), saying that Israel has “no better friend” than Israel.
“Best wishes to Prime Minister @Netanyahu and all of the people of Israel on the 70th Anniversary of your Great Independence,” Trump tweeted. “We have no better friends anywhere. Looking forward to moving our Embassy to Jerusalem next month!”
In response, Netanyahu tweeted that Israel too “has no better friend than America.”
“Thank you, President Trump! We too have no better friend than America. We are greatly looking forward to your moving the embassy to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital,” he tweeted.
Israel has already started celebrating its independence day, which is on 14 May, one day before the Palestinian catastrophe on 15 May 1948.
