Benjamin NetanyahuThe leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry is confident that she understands why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes Israel's ties with the Arab world are stronger than ever.

Recently addressing Israeli diplomats at the Foreign Ministry, Netanyahu praised Israel's recent diplomatic successes and breakthroughs – particularly with the Arab world.

"There is cooperation in various ways – on various levels – but [it] is not yet out in the open,” Netanyahu insisted. “But what is not yet out in the open is much greater than in any other period in Israeli history. This is a major change – the entire world is changing."

Olive Tree Ministries Founder and Director Jan Markell, who also hosts the radio program Understanding the Times on American Family Radio (AFR) – argues that Netanyahu did the best he could … considering what he had to work with during eight years of the pro-Palestinian Obama administration.  

"Prime Minister Netanyahu first of all, he was left isolated during eight years of Barack Obama.” Markell pointed out. “And he had no choice during those years but to start reaching out to Africa and to other places and some Middle East countries to find new allies."

Markell contends that even though there is a new administration that is very pro-Israel, the Jewish State still believes it is important to be good on terms with Sunni Muslim countries, such as Saudi Arabia.

"All of those Sunni Arab nations are, quite frankly, afraid for Shiite Iran,” the conservative pro-Israel leader stressed. “They're afraid of their extremism. They're afraid of their nuclear program. And they're afraid that they could be next. This has formed usual friendships in the Middle East that we never thought would happen."

 Markell also believes that Saudi Arabia would assist Israel if it carries out a strike against Iran's nuclear missile program.
