Netanyahu Uses Image of Trump in Re-Election Campaign Ads


USCPR Executive Director Yousef Munayyer is quoted by United Press International in their coverage of Benjamin Netanyahu’s pro-Trump campaign ads in the run up to the Israeli elections:

“Netanyahu wants to show Israelis that no Israeli can handle the U.S.-Israel relationship better than himself,” Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, told Newsweek after the two leaders met in Washington, D.C., last year.

“Trump wants to show his base that he continues to enjoy Netanyahu’s approval which is important because the Israeli Prime Minister is revered in the American political right.”
