Do'nt worry

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

Submitted by Lars Nielsen (Denmark), Feb 6, 2018 at 13:28

President Trump does not care about the Israel-Palestinian peace process, Because his voters do'nt care. What they see, and he sees, is, that the palestinians have achieved to make various presidents delay a congressional decision to move the american embassy to Jerusalem for more than twenty years.
They also see, that various secretaries of state have for many years acted as errand boys for the palestinians and got nothing in return.
They do'nt like it,so they back a president, who says: "Enough is enough".
The real problem is the democrats, who still believe in the peace process and may try to force the president to revive it, if they gain sufficient strength in chambers after the next election.
Fortunately, there are many higher prioritized issues, where they also want to attack the president.
So hopefully, they will not change USA's middle east policies, before they eventually win the presidency. And perhaps they will then realise, there are much higher worries than the palestinian problem.
Sure, the European Union also wants to revive the peace proces. But it has no miltary power, and its institutions are economically weakened after Brexit, so what can the Union do ?
