Trump and Netanyahu at WEF Jan 2018The head of a messianic Jewish ministry says she was pleased with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington, D.C.

Netanyahu arrived Sunday to start a five-day visit, meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday. It was the first meeting of the two since Trump announced his commitment to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries claims that Trump is Israel's biggest blessing among U.S. presidents, and that accomplishment is not lost on the prime minister.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"And I think there's some reflection back on the previous administration," she observes. "Barack Obama, I feel, was intent on doing as much harm to the Jewish state as he possibly could."

Markell says she was surprised that Netanyahu received a hero's welcome during his address at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee gathering in Washington, D.C.

"American Jews honestly don't care that much about Israel because they're secular," she says. "So I'm always surprised when he gets this kind of a reception at AIPAC, at any of these big Jewish group meetings. It was very heartwarming to see this."
