As President Donald Trump moves to “recognize the obvious,” will his administration’s efforts toward peace in the Middle East be damaged? A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the issue.
Opinions from the right:
1. How Trump's move makes peace more likely
From The Federalist: Chances of peace between Israel and Palestine are slim, but speaking the truth won’t hurt them.
.@benshapiro: "If you are a Jew and you walk into East Jerusalem, your life is in danger. If you're an Arab and you walk into West Jerusalem, there's no problem at all, which signifies exactly why Jerusalem should be under Jewish control and not under Muslim control." pic.twitter.com/t4hSdJ11Iu— Fox News (@FoxNews) December 6, 2017
2. Recognizing the obvious
From The Jerusalem Post: Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem won’t derail any peace talks – it will bring them into the realm of reality.
3. Trump's embassy move can restart peace process
From NewsMax: Yes, Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, but what is important is a two-state solution to the problem.
