Two ministers from the right-wing Jewish Home party and a Likud deputy minister congratulated US President Donald Trump on Friday for his appointment of John Bolton, seen as hawkish on the Iran nuclear deal, as the new White House national security adviser.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett tweeted that it was a “great appointment” and that Bolton was a “stalwart friend of Israel.”

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked posted in Hebrew that “President Trump continues to appoint true friends of Israel to senior positions. John Bolton is one of the most outstanding.”

She praised Bolton as an “excellent appointment” who brought to the job “great experience and original thinking.”

She added that “the Trump administration is emerging as the most sympathetic administration toward Israel of all time.”

Deputy Minister for Diplomacy Michael Oren (Kulanu) also welcomed Bolton’s appointment, saying that it signalled the end of the Iran nuclear accord and a tougher US line toward the Palestinians.

“The days of the nuclear agreement, which is terrible in its current form, are nearing an end,” he told Hebrew-language media.

“From now on Abu Mazen will have to think twice before deciding to spit on President Trump or his representatives,” he said, referring to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Trump announced in a tweet that Bolton, a former UN ambassador, was to replace General H.R. McMaster, in a move pundits said called the future of the Iran deal into serious doubt.

McMaster had been expected to leave later this year, so his exit was no surprise. But Bolton’s nomination has stunned much of Washington.

A vocal advocate of the Iraq war, he has also championed pre-emptive strikes against North Korea and regime change in Iran — making him an outlier even among Republicans.

His appointment had been fiercely opposed by many within Trump’s inner circle, most notably the coterie of military officers surrounding the president.

Bolton — a veteran of the George W. Bush administration — will now have a central role in crafting US foreign policy, including refereeing debates between America’s spooks, soldiers and diplomats.

But his most potent role will be framing the security decisions that make it to Trump’s desk.

His approach to American power matches neatly with Trump’s tough-talking rhetoric, although the two have not always agreed on overseas wars.
