Covenant With Many

Donald Trump on Mideast peace: 'We will get this done' -
UPI reports: "During a meeting with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas at the White House on Wednesday, President Donald Trump vowed to find Middle East peace -- a permanent solution that's eluded U.S. administrations for decades. Trump, a staunch supporter of Israel, acknowledged the difficulties in resolving differences between the Jewish state and Muslim Palestinian authorities that date back to the mid-20th century, and which have resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths. [...] Trump has said he can live with either a one- or two-state resolution."

Comment: Strange that you can almost hear him thinking to himself, "finally, something that involves real estate!" Well, good luck to him, hope he doesn't drift into the pattern of his predecessors in thinking that the only way to peace is to extract yet more concessions from Israel. Perhaps if they ask the Palestinians to stop firing missiles at Israel? That would make for a nice start to the process.
