Trump will be in Israel for a total of 26 hours, during which he will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, as well as visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and Masada, a Roman-era fortress in the Judean Desert.Trump is expected to give a speech while at Masada, described by his aides as “warm and sympathetic toward Israel and the Jewish nation, whose people never yield”. U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told a White House briefing Friday that in Israel, Trump would “reaffirm America’s unshakable bond to the Jewish state”, and in his meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, Trump “will express his desire for dignity and self-determination for the Palestinians. McMaster reportedly described the trip as “truly historic”, as “no president has ever visited the homelands and holy sites of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths all on one trip”. Asked whether Trump would bring Netanyahu and Abbas together in the same room during the visit, McMaster said that would be up to the prime minister and Palestinian president.

 

Palestinians must pass 'test of peace', stop paying terrorists.

The first thing the Palestinian Authority must do to prove it is committed to making peace with Israel is stop rewarding terrorism and stop payments to terrorists and the families of terrorists, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Sean Hannity of Fox News in an exclusive weekend interview. The prime minister told Hannity: “This is the crazy thing: They pay terrorists on a sliding scale, not on the cost of living, but on the cost of killing. The more you kill, the more you get. And it accumulates to vast sums, some of it contributed by Americans, by European governments”. Abbas, to his own people he says, ‘We don’t want a state next to Israel, we want a state instead of Israel”. The prime minister explained that the fact that “many in the region are threatened by that same Iran, and would be immeasurably threatened more by a nuclear-armed Iran” has brought many countries in the region to a “different thinking about Israel”. “The greatest challenge is the challenge of militant Islam of both kinds, the Shiite variety led by Iran, the Sunni variety led by ISIS [the Islamic State]. Both have to be rolled back, but of the two, the greater long-term change is from Iran. It’s a country of 80 million, it’s got oil. It’s developing submarines, it’s developing precision-guided rockets and missiles. It’s developing nuclear weapons, down the line. Satellites”, Netanyahu said, adding that power of that kind in the hands of a “militant Islamic regime” posed a threat to the entire world.
