Last week, a Foreign Ministry official warned a Knesset Committee of the dangers of a Democratic takeover in D.C.
Alon Ushpiz, the Foreign Ministry’s director of diplomacy, alerted members of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday that a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives would significantly change the atmosphere in Washington vis-à-vis Israel.
“Things will not be the same as before,” he was quoted as saying. “There will be consequences for Israel. What has happened until now since Trump’s entry into the White House will not continue, and we need to prepare for this.”
Ushpiz further warned that Israel was losing support in the US Jewish community, and he asked Knesset members to meet with Jews during trips to America, rather than just evangelical Christians.
