Netanyahu called Trump last night to thank him for US policy shift on settlements

Lebensraum redux

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday thanked US President Donald Trump for Washington’s decision to repudiate a State Department legal opinion that said West Bank settlements were illegal.

In a phone call, Netanyahu told Trump that the move, announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo earlier Monday, had “corrected a historic injustice.”

The premier said the change in tack represented a “simple truth” and likened it to the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and its moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem.
