    Yeah, it is not a good situation. Not like the situation was even in a great spot before Trump did anything but this shifts it into overdrive.

    It is ironic because a few months ago they were big on the two state solution and were sending people to work it out. Now they just toss it aside.

    It really does seem that Trump gets all his policy views off of watching Hannity and checking out conservative websites that are not know for factual accuracy.

One thing I'll give Trump credit for, and he did this unintentionally, is that he kicked things over to the international courts. Palestinians have the moral high ground in abandoning negotiations. Prior to Trump, there was a phony-baloney pretense that America was an honest broker, but the chance for peace shrank as the decades passed and Israel became increasingly right-wing.

Eventually every country is going to have to decide, in America's absence, to recognize Palestinian statehood. I suspect many will. Israel could very well be tried in international court for war crimes, especially if they continue to expand on Palestinian land.

Trump is also now bound to Israel, and visa-versa, effectively turning Israel into a fringe issue. The BDS movement will grow and become mainstream.
