Bryant meets with Israel’s prime minister

Bryant was the head of a trade delegation and spoke to Netanyahu on Thursday about Trump’s election and the shared interests of Mississippi, Bryant stated in a Facebook post. Yesterday, the governor visited Gaza Strip under the protection of the Israeli military. On Wednesday, he also spoke highly of Mississippi’s technology during the International Advanced Technology Conference. The Jerusalem Post interviewed Bryant shortly before his meeting with Netanyahu. Bryant, who was a Trump surrogate in 2016, said that Trump would be a strong “military alliance of Israel” and help to “restore the Israeli–American relationship.” The Jerusalem Post reported Bryant had downplayed questions about Trump’s support for or his support from anti-Semitic groups. He has Jewish grandchildren. A Jewish daughter and a Jewish son in law. Bryant stated that he can’t recall the last president to have Jewish children. According to Bryant, he also said that he led his 2014 first trade delegation to Israel because he felt President Barack Obama wasn’t giving Israel the support it needed. Bryant explained to the paper that Mississippi realized three years ago that President Obama’s administration seemed very distant from Israel. “You didn’t have the support and closeness that the U.S. provided Israel in the past; that was one reason that brought us to this point. We want you know that Mississippi supports Israel in every way it can.” Bryant explained to the Post that Mississippi voters are important in supporting Israel, not only in regards to candidates for national office but also in relation to those running for state offices. He is making his third visit to Israel as the head of a trade delegation. He said that the people of the South, especially those involved in the church, are from a JudeoChristian background and start to learn about the Holy Land, the wonderful Land of Israel from their earliest days. “Our mothers had told us stories about King David and the giant [Goliath] living in the valley [of Eila].
