Netanyahu praised Trump a day after the US president condemned the many bomb threats against Jewish community centers throughout the US. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed appreciation on Wednesday for President Donald Trump’s recent condemnation of anti-Semitism.

“It’s very important that President Trump took a strong stand against anti-Semitism,” said Netanyahu, while speaking at Sydney’s Central Synagogue on Wednesday to the city’s Jewish community. 

On Tuesday, Trump spoke out unequivocally against the many anti-Semitic bomb threats on Jewish community centers throughout the US. Trump made his remarks after touring the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.

“We have a battle against those who seek to demonize our people and the resurgent anti-Semitism that we see in many parts of the world,” Netanyahu added. “It is something that we need to fight together.”
