Mexican Officials Summon Israeli Ambassador Following PM Netanyahu’s Expressed Support for America’s Wall

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was among the few who dared to speak out in support of Trump, stating “it is a good idea”, pointing out he built a barrier along Israel’s southern border to bring an end to the influx of illegal African aliens, a plan that succeeded. This angered Mexico, leading to state officials summoning Israeli Ambassador to Mexico Jonathan Peled to rebuke him, which they did.

  1. The only reason Mexico would be opposed to a wall is if they are accessory to the illegal issues we have with Mexicans coming into our land! If people go through the legal channel then we have no issue accepting them! Is the Mexican government, by this brouhaha, inferring that they want their people to come to the U.S. for illicit reasons? Summoning the Israeli ambassador and the other outcries of their president lead one to think so!
