Your assessment of "Quasi-Jewish" President Trump & friend of Bibi is mistaken.

Reader comment on item: The US-Israel Honeymoon May Not Last

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

I think that your assessment of Trump on Israel is clouded by the same general dislike for him current in our demographic American population.

But his character is sufficiently known to make a good assessment
if you discard the "noise" produced by the "FAKE MEDIA.

Trump had no problem with his beloved daughter marrying an Orthodox Jew and converting to Judaism
and thereby making herself "100%" Jewish as well as her 3 children.
The "100%" qualifier of President Trump is extremely informative. He is 100% for Israel. His grandchildren may even "settle" in the West Bank (Samaria & Judea) one day (he is aware of that possibility.

And you must give due weight to the fact that he is behind Bibi 100%.

Therefore, he will not do anything which contradicts Bibi's choices.

You are not giving sufficient weight to his remark that he likes what both sides like - which obviously means he likes especially what Bibi likes. And if your not worried about Bibi, you shouldn't worry about Trump.

Regarding "PEACE" you are following what "Egypt & Cairo: 9one and the same) want.
What is to be followed instead is SAUDI ARABIA.
And the Saudis I believe are the most anti-Palestinians in the world except for Israel. The Saudis have allegedly proposed that Ramallah be the Capital of Palestine.

Trump said he will wait. This means he's waiting for Bibi to make his move.
It is clear to me that Trump will not dictate terms to Bibi.

The only real question to be asked
is what will happen after Trump leaves office.

During the League of Nations era the Balfour Declaration was adopted
with Palestine becoming the Political Home of the Jews.
After its demise,
the General Assembly decided (with no force of international law,
that Palestine be partitioned into 3 Parts:
(1) Jewish, (2) Palestinian (non-Jewish), and (3) International Jerusalem.
So Trump eliminate (3) made it a part of (1) and left (2) open for negotiations.
As long as the Palestinians don't make Peace there will remain Jewish/Israeli Jerusalem.
And after Peace, the Palestinians may get 0% of Jerusalem.
Don't forget Abba Eban's observation
that the Palestinians never miss an opportunity
to miss an opportunity - 100" of the time may be the appropriate retort.
