White House Announced THIS About Israel and Palestine! People Won’t Be Pleased

0

As Donald Trump took the oath of office our relationship as a country with Israel was crumbling. President Obama had just forced his United Nations’ ambassador to give a no contest vote that stripped Israel of some of its sovereign land. A move that Netanyahu criticized the President for and to which Trump responded alike.

Prior to the Wednesday meeting between President Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a White House spokesperson told reporters the administration might not seek a two state solution. Nearly all administrations have supported the two-state solution.

It is a solution where both Israel and Palestine could exist as neighbors as a means to achieve ultimate peace between the two warring nations. Almost all of the major actors have expressed their outright support for it. Actors such as the United Nations, the Palestinian Authority, and Israel.

But ultimately the issue always dies because the parties cannot agree where the border lies and both refuse to give up their claim to Jerusalem. According to the Los Angeles Time the senior White House official, who remains anonymous, said the following about the issue,

“A two-state solution that doesn’t bring peace is not our goal that anybody wants to achieve.”

The source indicated the two-state solution might or might not bring peace. The source maintained that both sides would have to agree to the solution but the ultimate decision is not one the United States had a right to be making.

They said,

“Peace is the goal, whether it comes in the form of a two-state solution, if that’s what the parties want, or something else. If that’s what the parties want, we’re going to help them.”

Israel and the United States have been strong allies for a long time. But under the Obama administration the relationship has been strained as they were more apt to side with the Palestinian Authority and instead remain silent when judgements were made against Israel.

The President has spoken of establishing a more cordial relationship with Russia. Thus, it is not a far stretch to argue the President will attempt to do the same with Israel. He has said as much to the media. Now it is just time for him to follow through.

Because both morally and internationally maintaining a strong relationship with our ally is fundamentally important.
