Will Trump's affinity for Israel translate into new policy?

Why Trump and Netanyahu might keep Iran nuclear deal after all

President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017. But the USA and much of the rest of the world have backed the two-state solution for years, through presidents Democratic and Republican, for a strong reason: It's the only solution that looks to have a shred of a chance to work.

On Twitter, another user also expressed a similar sentiment, saying, "any pretense of a two state solution died when, over the past 8 years, Netanyahu and KBHomes turned the West Bank into swiss cheese". He said that also under Trump's leadership, together the US and Israel "can reverse the rising tide of radical Islam".

During his 2016 election campaign, Trump indicated his presidency would be a boon for Israel and tough on Palestinians, after an acrimonious relationship between his predecessor Barack Obama and Netanyahu that included clashes over settlement building and Iran's nuclear program.

Mr Trump promised to work towards achieving a comprehensive peace agreement, suggesting a regional approach involving Arab states and he called on Israel to "hold back on settlements for a little bit".

Mr Netanyahu agreed to the two-state goal in a speech in 2009 and has been broadly in support of it ever since.

Under a two-state deal that has come tantalizingly close to happening, the sides negotiate borders, security, the status of Jerusalem and other thorny issues.

Over at National Review, writer Jonah Goldberg said that Trump's neutral language was important.

"From the ruins of Amona we will build a new settlement", Bennett said.

Palestinians, however, said that if Israel absorbs the West Bank, they should be given the same rights as Israelis, including the right to vote. In a single Israeli state of both Jews and Arabs, Israel would control the disputed West Bank and other areas that Palestinians claim for their homeland.

"If U.S. President Donald Trump is trying to create alternative realities, then he should spell out what the options are - a one-state solution would require equal rights and citizenship for all, unless he is advocating an apartheid state". Taking this into consideration, many are predicting that the one-state solution, or the creation of a singular, unified state, looks far more likely. "Our alliance has been remarkably strong, but under your leadership, I'm confident that we'll get even stronger".

"I am not somebody that believes that going forward with these settlements is a good thing for peace".

It is hard to imagine that the government they elect will be a reliable supporter of an undemocratic Greater Israel.

The US and the world has a stake in what happens in this region.

It might have sounded the death knell for an already moribund Middle East peace process, but Donald Trump seems to have delayed plans to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

"There are two prerequisites for peace. I can say that", Trump told the newspaper Israel Hayom. I think that you're going to see a lot different United States of America over the next three, four, or eight years.
