And it is not just Trump, it is the Republicans. The Republicans do not need to be told to be pro-Israel; the Democrats do. The problem, he said, is that they are all in their sixties and seventies, and there is not an equally ardent pro-Israel cadre among the marquee Democratic names in their thirties and forties.
But these are the people who have to go talk to [up-and-coming Democratic leaders] Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom. That is their job.
Is the U.S.-Israel relationship in danger?
Their job is not to yell at Netanyahu for being close to the Republicans; their job is to get close to the Democrats. Poll after poll shows that grassroots support for Israel in the Republican Party outpaces that in the Democratic Party, even though Jews still vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.
Regarding the non-Jews, Abrams pointed out that Israel has been governed by a right-of-center government for the last 17 years. Furthermore, several Turkey-based pro-Muslim Brotherhood channels launch consistent vicious attacks on the Saudi royal family for their support the coup.
How a breakdown in relations with Turkey could lead to an MBS-Bibi bromance
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia provided crucial economic assistance to the putschists. The relationship reached another low point after Saudi Arabia and its allies imposed a blockade on Qatar in Turkey sided the Qatari regime and even sent troops to Qatar to safeguard against any potential internal or external regime change effort.
Turkey shares with Qatar a desire in bringing political Islamists to power across the Middle East, but Saudi Arabia views the tiny emirate as a destabilizing factor across the region. No matter how Erdogan and Saudi King Salman bin Abdel Aziz attempt to portray the relationship as brotherly and strong; the damage has been done and their bilateral ties would not recover from this debacle in the near future.
MbS is well-secured in his position and will become the next king of Saudi Arabia after the passage of his father regardless of international pressure. MbS is likely to never forget the damage that Erdogan has inflicted on his project and image, and a sense of vengeance is likely to endure well into the future, resulting in a tense relationship as long as the Turkish president is in power. The survival of a tiny nation despite extreme levels of hostility by its giant neighbors has both led Arabs to admire and hate Israel at the same time.
Being a pragmatic man himself, MbS admires the fighting spirit of the Jewish state and is actively looking for ways to harness that capability toward the advancement of his anti-Iranian and political Islam vision in the region.
