The US/Israel Relationship is on the Mend

At least the mainstream media is consistent, it has absolutely no idea what is happening with regards to the Middle East.

President Trump and Israeli Premier Netanyahu held a joint press conference on Wednesday and throw away what you may have heard from the MSM because they emphasized the wrong things and got some points wrong, all because neither the American President nor the Israeli Prime Minister are liked by the liberal media.

Most missed was the different approach to US/Israeli relations and the Middle East peace process revealed during the press conference.

Despite what you may have heard or read from the MSM President Trump did not abandon the  “two-state-solution.”  What the President dropped was the Obama position which was articulated by Susan Rice,  “even if Israel and the Palestinians reach an agreement, it is possible that the United States would oppose it.”  The position Trump stated was we will support whatever the Israelis and Palestinians come up with.

I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two.  But honestly, if Bibi and if the Palestinians — if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I’m happy with the one they like the best.

One could not help but notice during the press conference that the two genuinely like each other, For one thing  the POTUS allowed the Prime Minister to enter and leave through the front door of the White House. Even when the president seemingly tried to  pressure Israel it was done in a jovial way…
