The default position the last 30 years. A separate Palestinian State alongside Israel what most American and Western leaders envisioned would be the key to peace in the Middle East. That’s not necessarily the case for President Trump.
“I like the one that both parties like,” Trump said of the path to peace during a joint news conference with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “I can live with either one. I thought for a while that two states looked like the easier of the two. If Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I like the one they like the best.”
During the press conference, Trump and Netanyahu had a bit of a dialogue
Trump said “both sides would have to make compromises — you know that, right?” he said to Netanyahu. He asked the Israeli leader to “hold back on settlements for a little bit” on land the Palestinians believe should be part of their territory in any peace deal.
Israel has recently announced expansions of settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, and Netanyahu was noncommittal in response to Trump’s request.
“Let’s try,” he said.
“Doesn’t sound too optimistic, but that’s …” Trump replied.
“That’s the art of the deal,” Netanyahu said, to laughter.
The two state solution will never work. Palestinians and Muslims proper, don’t want to live alongside Jews. They would rather eradicate them.
I’m one that is of the opinion that there will never be peace in that region.
