All true. But…things are about to change. A new day is dawning. It’s morning in America.
The Washington Post and the establishment propaganda media is appalled that Barkat could say these things. The way the game is played, in their view, is that the Obama administration should be allowed a free hand to push for a settlement-building freeze, surrender to the Iranians and radical Islam and abandon Israel to a hostile U.N. resolution. But those who take notice of the fact that it has done this are “right-wing extremists.” Got it?
“In video praising Trump, Jerusalem mayor says Obama ‘surrendered’ to radical Islam,” by William Booth, Washington Post, January 19, 2017:

The Obama White House considered the Jewish communities in the occupied West Bank to be “illegitimate” and “an obstacle to peace.” The rest of the world calls them “illegal.” Israel disputes this.
The video continues, with Barkat saying: “This week President Donald Trump enters the White House. Let’s all welcome him together as our friend.”
Then the viewer hears some rousing music, sees Trump mount a stage, watches a crowd cheering wildly and cuts to Trump addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobby in Washington, vowing, “We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem …”…
