Mendi Safadi, the head of the Safadi Center for International Diplomacy, recently met with the chairman of the Tea Party in Palm Beach, Florida, where they discussed the idea of the Tea Party opening up a branch within the Druze community in Israel.   Safadi has already taken steps together with Druze activists for a conference that will take place in the Galilee after Safadi returns from the US and Europe around the Jewish High Holidays.

Safadi discussed with the Tea Party the strategic dangers facing Israel in an era of revolutions and in the wake of increased regional terrorism. They discussed how the Obama administration that Clinton was part of essentially abandoned the Middle East and how the damage that they caused to both the US and Israel can be taken care of.  They explored how to respond should Clinton win the election and continue the same policy of pressuring Israel, which her husband Bill Clinton and after him Barack Hussein Obama pursued. In addition, they spoke about America’s unexplainable aid to the Bangladeshi government and the terrorism sweeping through the country as evidence to support the claim that the Obama administration is supporting radical Islamists at the expense of traditional partners in the Middle East and Asia.

In the conversation, Safadi proclaimed why the Tea Party should be promoted within the Druze community and was asked whether it will be an alternative for the Likud Party that he is a member of: “The Tea Party in the United States is an integral part of the Republican Party and serves as a vehicle moderating the right wing party rather than as a separate unit.  I am a Likud Central Committee member and will remain so. I support without any reservations Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.   The Druze in the Likud have always displayed a connection between the various streams in the party. Here, there is a combination of ideological positions that my colleagues and I believe in alongside the need to consolidate the power of the Druze in the Likud.”

“We seek to cooperate with a qualitative group that loves Israel that will help public relations efforts,” Safadi added. “Druze delegations will be sent to explain Israel’s position in the US and Europe while Tea Party delegations will come to Israel accompanied by a Druze public relations team.  The Safadi Center will work with the foreign visitors, so I am promoting an ideology that I believe in which promotes Israel’s public relations in cooperation with the Druze sector that promotes unity between the two sides for a common cause.”  

Regarding the US elections, Safadi proclaimed: “I do not want to intervene and tell Americans who is the better candidate but I don’t understand Jews who support Clinton despite the fact that she abandoned Israel’s security when she served as Secretary of State under the Obama administration. It was the most difficult period that Israel and the Middle East endured. Yet, there are still many Jews who support her hoping that Israel will have no support among the eligible voters in the country but one thing is clear.   The damage Clinton did for Israel is known in advance.  No matter how Trump will be, he is not capable of half of the damage that was already caused by Clinton.”
