Trump Responds To Manchester Attack In Meeting With Palestinian Leader

Posted May 28, 2017

Many American presidents have tried to get the Palestinians and Israelis together, but Trump knows he can do it. On June 5, 1967, Israel invaded Palestinian, Egyptian, and Syrian territories at once. The self-proclaimed deal master calls it "the ultimate deal". "US officials familiar with the move said the Saudis objected to the public acknowledgement of the existence of a separate Saudi offshoot of the terrorist group inside the kingdom".

So far, Trump has travelled to Saudi Arabia and Israel to work with the two nations on combating Iran's aggression and to tackle the deal of all deals - the Middle East peace process.

Considered one of the holiest sites in Judaism, the Western Wall is in Jerusalem's Old City, however the USA does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

And just after Trump makes the statement, Israel's ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, is seen running his hand through his hair - a move that some have interpreted as embarrassment on the president's behalf. Saying that about human right is a departure from long-standing US policy.

Thanks to Obama's do-nothing approach in the Middle East, Iran and Russian Federation filled the void, supplying Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with weapons to fight a bloody civil war and commit atrocities against his people like gassing women and children.

However, said Larijani, Saudi Arabia has never contributed to any conflict against Israel.

Many people from both the left and right have raised concerns over the selling of weapons to a autocratic state like Saudi Arabia.

The US package reportedly includes the renewed sale of precision-guided munitions that had been blocked under president Barack Obama's administration, for fear the Saudis would use them on civilian targets in Yemen, where Riyadh is fighting a war against Iranian-backed Huthi rebels. By some measures, it is worse....

Without naming anyone in particular, Rubin tells OneNewsNow that Trump is getting "bad advice" from his advisers about moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - a campaign promise that has yet to be realized. He discussed US-Saudi relations and notably Islam. He added that in his meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas it was clear that "the Palestinians are ready to reach for peace", and that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "wants peace". The celebrations were extravagant and apparently heartfelt, with King Salman himself even teaching Mr Trump the correct way to drink Saudi coffee.

Both sides are wary of being accused of resisting Trump's peace efforts or being cast as obstructing the resumption of talks. Trump had just visited Israel and the Palestinian areas. I say the focus on the problem is wrong-headed.

Abbas underlined that the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis was not based on religion. "And I mean completely obliterated". So they need to look elsewhere to solve this real estate squabble.
