Daniel Shapiro on tomorrow’s meeting between Trump and Abbas


“If Abbas can whisper in Trump’s ear, or (dare we dream?) even say publicly that he can recognise Israel as a Jewish state as part of a final package, he will leave the White House with the best asset any leader can hope for: the President’s support and respect.”

(Former US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro writing in Fathom, 02/05/2017)
