BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met and discussed how to continue their countries’ cooperation in the Middle East while in Brasilia during Jair Bolsonaro’s inauguration on Tuesday.

Netanyahu stated that in the meeting with Pompeo: “we’re going to be discussing the intense cooperation between Israel and the United States which will also deal with the questions following the American decision on Syria and how to intensify even further our intelligence and operations cooperation in Syria and elsewhere, to block Iranian aggression in the Middle East, to roll it back.”

Pompeo reassured Netanyahu that “the decision the President made on Syria [to withdraw troops] in no way changes anything that this administration is working on alongside Israel.

The counter ISIS campaign continues, our efforts to counter Iranian aggression continue and our commitment to Middle East stability and the protection of Israel continues in the same way.”

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
