Trump Questions Israel's Interest in Making Peace

Postby John Q. Public » Sun Feb 11, 2018 8:37 am

JERUSALEM (AP) — President Donald Trump questioned Israel's interest in making peace with the Palestinians in an interview published Sunday, spotlighting its West Bank settlements as a complicating factor.

In the interview in the Israel Hayom daily, Trump also cast doubt on the Palestinians' desire to strike a deal. But his comments about Israel mark rare criticism from a president who has publicly sparred with the Palestinians while forging warm ties with Israel ahead of the expected presentation of a U.S. peace outline.

"Right now, I would say the Palestinians are not looking to make peace, they are not looking to make peace. And I am not necessarily sure that Israel is looking to make peace. So we are just going to have to see what happens," Trump was quoted as saying. He did not disclose details about the anticipated peace plan.

This is an area that Trump's narcissism would actually be helpful. I don't think he gives a damn about Jews, Palestinians, Jerusalem, Zionism and all the other religious nonsense in the Middle East. Including our "relationship" with the Saudis.
