Trump and Israel

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

Submitted by Reynald de Chatillon (Australia), Mar 3, 2018 at 23:21

I disagree strongly regarding your prediction relating to Trump and Israel. On the contrary, I think Donald Trump is probably the best friend Israel has ever had. I think he is only paying lip service to the so called "peace process". I think deep down he realises that these people (Muslims) cannot be reasoned with. If the US were to follow a policy of appeasement, which many on the left wish to do, it will only lead to more demands at the expense of Israel. If Israel were to fall tomorrow, it would not end there. Think of the fall of Acre in 1291, the conflict between Islam and Christendom did not end there, but only intensified with the Ottoman invasion of Europe in the following century.
