Washington Free Beacon: After years of tense relations with the United States under former President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is emerging as one of the most prominent international personalities, according to multiple sources who told the Washington Free Beacon that Democrats, Republicans, and high-level White House officials are clamoring for a sit down with the Israeli leader when he arrives in town on Tuesday.

Senior officials across party lines hope to let Netanyahu know that America has Israel’s back and that years of tension during the Obama administration is just water under the bridge, according to both congressional sources and those close to the Trump administration.”

Opinion: How many remember that on March 3, 2015, 58 Democrat members of Congress along with Vice President Joe Biden, and President Barack Obama, boycotted Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech warning that Iran was/is the world’s largest sponsor of terror, and the P5+1 nuclear deal would be a danger not just to Israel but the rest of the world?

How many remember like pictures this?

or this?

And how many know that since America’s new president has changed the discourse on Israel, blessings are abounding:

Fortune 500 companies are investing in America for the first time in over a decade:

US Steel, Soft Bank, Ford, Apple, Carrier, Fiat, Kroger, Response Packaging, Toyota, Intel, Delta Airlines and Alibaba Group, have decided to invest in America, which will bring thousands of real jobs with benefits.

Sanctuary cities are rethinking their policy and Jerry Brown, Governor of California, is asking for President Trump’s assistance on the Oroville Dam evacuations rather than seceding from the United States.

And President Trump has not completed his first month in office.

We were used to quoting the curses of the Abrahamic Covenant for the past 8 years. Today we can quote the 1st part of Genesis 12:3

“I will bless those who bless you”

  1. And possibly the biggest investor of them all, Japan:

    But Japan’s prime minister brought also some new ideas for working with the Trump administration. New avenues for economic cooperation will be explored including President Trump’s ambition for a nation-wide infrastructure improvement plan. Japan’s much vaunted high speed rail and its newer maglev technologies, Abe noted, could help. Maglev, for example, would allow President Trump to get from Washington to New York in an hour, he promised.

    In detail, PM Abe’s deal for Trump reportedly focuses on five common goals for the US and Japan:

    1) developing the world’s most advanced infrastructure in the United States;

    2) using US infrastructure development as a platform for joint-leadership in supplying global infrastructure demand;

    3) leading the development of robots and artificial intelligence and their applications;

    4) collaborating in new frontiers, such as space development;

    5) cooperating more closely on defence, and security systems development and security strategy.

    Whilst items two to five are more strategic at this stage, there are concrete project proposals for US infrastructure, as reported by the Yomiuri Shimbun:

    high-speed railway projects in Texas, California and the Washington-Boston North-Eastern corridor;
    a commitment for Japan to replace 3,000 railway train and subway cars currently in use in the US;
    build more highly-efficient, gas-fired power plants in the US;
    build more nuclear power plants;
    jointly develop robots to decommission old nuclear power plants;
    jointly develop robots to inspect and maintain infrastructure (e.g. pipelines, powerlines);
    jointly develop the global standard for self-driving trucks, ships and planes.
