Following the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani last week by a U.S. drone strike, the state of Israel is adamant that they will provide no assistance to America against potential retaliation.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear that the U.S. is on their own when it comes to dealing with the fall out of Soleimani’s assassination.

Soleimani and his Hezbollah militias have long been the foes of the Israeli government. Israeli citizens were reportedly happy with the killing of Soleimani.
“Soleimani had it coming,” said Israeli resident Rona Tal, who was enjoying an afternoon at a cafe in Tel Aviv. “Iran has been provoking Israel and the U.S. for years.”
“It’s easier to fight these people without Soleimani,” said 22-year-old Ibrahim Srur, who was interviewed while sitting behind a tourist information desk. “He was one of the most powerful men in Iran and Iran wants to destroy us.”
“When a key enemy unit loses its top strategist, policy maker, shadow diplomat and symbolic brand it surely is a huge setback,” said Assaf Orion, who once led strategic planning for the Israeli military’s planning directorate.
“President Trump has brought to an end the rule of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on the radical Sunni [Islam] side and now Soleimani from the Shiite terror set, and that’s quite an impressive achievement,” he added.
Netanyahu reportedly believes that Iran may retaliate against Israel, and he is being careful to distance himself and his nation from the U.S. attack accordingly. Nevertheless, Netanyahu maintains that Israel supports the right of the U.S. to defend their interests against Iran as they please.
“I want to clarify again — Israel is completely on the side of the U.S. in its struggle for security, peace and self-defense,” Netanyahu said on Sunday.
Military analysts are expecting Iran to retaliate against the U.S. in some fashion in the days to come after the nation is finished mourning Soleimani.
“In the first instance, attacks against US interests in Iraq and Syria and even Lebanon seem most likely,” said Tom Beckett, who works as the executive director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) – Middle East.
“There remains a grey space, where the Iranian regime believes it can conduct limited reprisals: the most obvious is targeting shipping in the Strait of Hormuz, where it hopes it would be ambiguous enough to avoid a hostile response,” said Jack Watling, who works as a research fellow at the Royal United Service Institute.
Regardless of how Iran decides to retaliate, it appears that the U.S. will be going in alone as the conflict escalates following the military strike killing Soleimani.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
