Running Out of Shoes to Drop

Reader comment on item: A Reluctant but Unhesitating Vote for Donald Trump
in response to reader comment: Trump 2020

If acknowledging the Golan, moving the embassy and reevaluating the promises of sovereignty over Samaria-Judea is not enough, brokering another friendly arrangement between Israel and former foes has got to be a signal that the Administration of President Donald Trump signals a different approach to how the Middle East issues are coming to a head. We keep musing elsewhere about which shoe is about to be dropped (or thrown), this cannot be but a challenge to the Egyptian accord or the shakey agreement with Jordan. Is Abdullah fuming now? How about Abbas; Nasrallah; Rouhani and all the rest. Or is the term unrest more appropriate. Leave it to President Trump to keep it interesting.
