Donald Trump's Middle East Comment in Israel

Donald Trump's Middle East Comment in Israel

Trump held no news conferences during the nine-day trip, which allowed him to avoid questions about the Russian Federation investigations. Trump's speech came after he met Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas in Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank earlier in the day.

Trump has tried to ban the entry of refugees and immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries, as he links them with an increased terrorist threat.

Trump ended his nine-day trip with a speech to US troops in Sicily, where he recounted his visits to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy and his work to counter terrorism.

He also talked about the brutal violence taking place in the Arab nations, speculating that with Muslim leaders coming together at the summit, it could be an initiation of peace in the Middle eastern countries, or even the world.

"They said that there won't be normalization without progress on the Palestinian-Israeli issue, but if it is solved, it will open a major gate for Israel with Sunni Arab countries", he recounted.

It would be nice if the president of the United States was required to pass a basic geography test. Thank you, Mr. President. So too was the powerful commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, another ardent pro-Israel cabinet member.

Trump dances with a sword as he arrives to a welcome ceremony by Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud at Al Murabba Palace in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on May 20, 2017.




"Mr. President, yesterday in Saudi Arabia you delivered a forceful speech of clarity and conviction".

Still, the trip offered the clearest picture to date of how Trump plans to put his imprint on America's relationship with the world.

And then another first: No other President had visited the Kotel while in office. There was little time to contemplate this mystery, because Trump was moving on to generate more puzzlement at his meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister. It is the holiest site in Judaism. He walked up to the wall, took a moment to reflect, and stuck a message in the wall. In Israel, he asked the Israeli prime minister at one point "what's the protocol?" before standing for a photo.

"It's not just the Saudis, its also the Emirates, also the Qataris, also the Iranians; they are all acquiring weapons, he said". Statements made after their meeting made news, with Netanyahu saying that "I also look forward to working closely with you to advance peace in our region, because you have noted so succinctly that common dangers are turning former enemies into partners". While the president of the United States touched the ancient stones in reverence, his Jewish daughter Ivanka prayed a few meters away at the women's section. "The only way to end the conflict and the fight against terror in the region and the entire world is a solution of two states based on the 1967 borders, Palestine alongside Israel", Abbas said.

Tourism Minister Yariv Levin said the cable auto "will change the face of Jerusalem, allow easy and convenient access for tourists and visitors to the Western Wall and will serve as an exceptional tourist attraction". Both countries were infuriated by the deal President Barack Obama had brokered with Iran in 2015, curtailing Iran's nuclear program to a civilian one in exchange for a partial lifting of sanctions and release of Iranian assets. According to White House officials, this is to give both sides maximum room for negotiation. As the Whitehouse.gov website was about to steam Monday's post-meeting comments by Trump and Netanyahu, it splashed a screen notice that the location of the meeting was Jerusalem, Israel (see photo on previous page). In a nutshell, when the Iranian people and worldwide community alter the Iranian government's behavior of exporting Shiite extremism, they will bring the goal of stamping out extremism in the Middle East region that much closer. But this may be the time. Adding to the dissonant image, Trump's wife, Melania, and daughter, Ivanka, stood next to the president, silently staring off into the distance, their somber expressions heightened by their all black outfits.

Yet those questions are sure to persist, particularly given Trump's remarkable lashing of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in Brussels.

"Jerusalem is a sacred city". The ties of the Jewish people to this Holy Land are ancient and eternal.
