Donald Trump Meets Netanyahu

The newly elected US President Donald Trump said he wants to put an end to the Israel-Palestinian conflict through negotiating an “Ultimate deal” between the Palestinians and the Israelis with his staff reportedly warning the current Obama administration not to make any major move that could interfere with Trump’s future policies. Trump said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, referring to the complex conflict as the “War that never ends.”

Just one day after winning the election, Trump invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with him in the US. Trump noted that any deal should be directly negotiated between Israel and Palestine, but that his administration would play a “significant role in helping the parties to achieve a just, lasting peace.” He also stated that Israel is a “beacon of hope to countless people,” and that it shares the same values as the US, such as “freedom of speech, freedom of worship and the importance of creating opportunities for all citizens to pursue their dreams.”

The Israeli right hopes Trump’s election will end the animosity between Netanyahu’s government and that of US President Barack Obama’s administration. Israeli-Palestinian peace talks have been at a standstill for two years since US efforts led by Secretary of State John Kerry failed. The sides stopped consultations after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas forged an unexpected pact with Hamas.
Trump, unlike his predecessors, is reportedly prepared to turn a blind eye to the issue of Israeli settlements that are being built on the occupied lands that Palestinians want for their future state. Despite their illegality under international law, Trump believes they do not present an impassable obstacle to peace talks.
