Trump in Saudi Arabia

Trump in Saudi Arabia

He called on Arab countries to isolate Iran and held the country responsible for the rise of global terrorism, even though Iran is strongly opposed to the Islamic State - the militant group that the USA is most obsessed with. They argue neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians are ready to make the hard compromises necessary to achieve a lasting peace. Ignoring the humanitarian catastrophe in the Middle East's poorest country and allowing Saudi Arabia to continue violating worldwide law to kill civilians theoretically denies stateless space to terror organizations. This means that instead of singling out terrorists who happen to be Muslim, Trump's words lump all of the world's 1.6 billion Muslims into the same extremist camp.

"The problem is that the Americans do not know our region and those who advise USA officials are misleading them". But obstacles have emerged that may complicate the relationship between the White House and the Knesset. Drive them out of your holy land.

"The United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon, and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias", he added.

He continued: 'This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations.

So within a few minutes of landing at Tel Aviv airport - part of whose runways actually lies on land legally owned by Palestinian Arabs 60 years ago - the Trump speechwriters (for Trump surely can not write this stuff) were churning out once more their hatred of Iran, of Iran's "terror", of Iran's plots, of Iran's continuing desire to make a nuclear bomb.

"I've never seen anything come together so quickly, and I really have to say that Ivanka's leadership has been tremendous", Kim said, according to the pool report from the event in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

Asked on the mood of the meeting considering that Trump was reportedly associated with anti-Muslim stand during his election campaign, Najib said Muslim leaders acknowledged the situation have changed when the election candidate become a president as his words and actions had vast impact on the United States and the rest of the world. On Saturday, May 20 he arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and met with Saudi King Salman and a variety of members of the royal family and government.

Iran's president, Hassan Rouhani, a moderate who championed Iran's landmark nuclear deal in 2015 and was reelected by a wide margin days ago, was disparaging of the Sunni summit in Saudi Arabia in a news conference Monday, saying it "had no political value and will bear no results", Reuters reported.

"It was a phenomenal trip, phenomenally successful...history was made, it was the first visit by a president to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as his first trip overseas", the foreign minister said. And they made some brief remarks, and then a reporter from Bloomberg shouted out a question, asking Prime Minister Netanyahu if he was concerned about sharing intelligence with the United States.

Trump had been told not to use the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism" by those around him. "Not one guy with a bad placard".

Mr Netanyahu and his wife Sara, as well as President Reuven Rivlin and members of the Israeli cabinet, were at Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion airport to greet Mr Trump and first lady Melania in a red carpet ceremony after what is believed to have been the first direct flight from Riyadh to Israel.
