Israelis find something to like about Trump
Even when he is wrong he is usually blunt. This is in sharp contrast to the more weasely Obama persona when it comes to Israel and the Middle East. Ted Cruz was easily the most pro-Israel candidate in the field and is still the most articulate in challenging the Islamic religious bigots who are making war against Israel and the US.
While Israelis have mixed views of Mr. Trump’s policy proposals, they admiringly describe him as “dugri,” a slang Hebrew term derived from the Arabic for “straight ahead.”
