TV report says US defense secretary was set to hold talks with in Israel next week on Iran and Syria; senior Israeli officials said to harshly criticize Syria pullout decision.
US Defense Secretary James Mattis has cancelled a trip to Israel planned for next week after submitting his resignation in the wake of President Donald Trump’s decision to pull US forces out of Syria, Israeli television reported Friday.
Mattis’s talks in Israel had been set to focus on Iran and Syria, according to Channel 10 news.
The former marine general’s decision to resign came after Trump’s sudden announcement Wednesday that he would withdraw all American troops from Syria, saying they had completed their task of defeating the Islamic State jihadist group. That claim has been largely rejected by defense analysts and officials from around the world.
Channel 10 news reported Wednesday that Netanyahu tried in vain to persuade Trump to change his mind, and that there was tremendous “disappointment” in Jerusalem over the pullout, which is regarded as a victory for Russia, Iran and Hezbollah.
“Trump threw us under the wheels of the semi-truck of the Russian army, the one that transfers weapons to Syria and Hezbollah,” the unnamed official said.
The New York Times said Israeli intelligence officials “felt betrayed by the United States withdrawal.”.

For all who await the return of the Messiah, this is a significant move.
You can not be betrayed by an enemy. If you ever trusted him, you will have to pay for your foolishness.
You can only be betrayed by a friend.
The USA is one of the very last friends Israel have to rely on. Sad as it is. Having to trust to much on Washington, has left Israel looking like a kind of Banana republic.
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
The bible says that Israel will be betrayed by all nations. It is an utter tragedy for all the nations, because they will all face stern judgement for this when the Messiah returns. So say the Prophetic word. For all Jews, there will be a great tribulation just before the Redeemer comes. For those who live among the Gentiles, and are lover of the World, you might not get what I am saying. You might not understand a thing, the day the Messiah tell you to depart from Him, in the same line as the devil and all the angles who served him. May be you will get a clue if I tell you that there are now more than 50.000 missiles pointing towards Israel from the Islamic World. And the numbers are raising as we speak.
‘But he will reply, “I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!”
Behold: Yeshua Ben-David is the Messiah. He is called by different names among the nations. Most people pray to Him in the name of Jesus But all who have surrendered to Him will understand who He is. And not be among those who betray the Jewish nation, but rather be watchmen on the Walls of Jerusalem. Amen.
