Senate panel OKs new sanctions on Iran nuclear deal remains

In 2017, President Trump essentially told the gathered leaders that he is aware of the problem in Islam, but he's not going to get into a debate over why and how it happened. This week, Trump wrote his own chapter as he bumbled his way through Saudi Arabia and Israel before heading for Rome.

First Lady Melania Trump appeared to twice slap away Mr. Trump's hand during their trip overseas together.

The Yomiuri ShimbunIt is important for the United States to build a solid strategy and enhance its clout in the Middle East in pursuit of stability and the eradication of extremist organizations in the region.

It may be a long distance between the massacre in Manchester and the wars in the Middle East, but the connection is there. The addition comes on the heels of a weekend announcement of a massive U.S. -Saudi arms deal. Israel rightly regarded Obama's abstention as a stab in the back. Trump has no such concerns. Just by stepping foot on the hallowed ground of Jerusalem, the place of confluence between three great monotheistic world religions, Trump committed an outrage with his hypocrisy, vested self-interests, and moral bankruptcy.

Even on Iran, Washington is keeping its options open.

"Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate Iran, deny it funding for terrorism, and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they deserve".

Many were quick to comment on the irony of Tillerson making that statement not only in Saudi Arabia but while standing next to a senior minister in the Saudi government.

In both cases, the US will have to be perceived as an honest broker. There are as many opponents of the Iran nuclear deal in Tehran as in Washington.

The ballistic missiles Tillerson is so concerned about demonstrate a much greater and more risky hypocrisy. That puts it mildly. When Tehran sees a massive inflow of USA arms, it has no choice but to bolster its own defenses.

In true realist form, Trump's speech was created to speak directly to the leaders of these countries.

The incendiary event celebrates Israel's 1967 takeover of the eastern half of the city, and its subsequent annexation, a unilateral move that remains unrecognised internationally.

He should first make a honest review of his trip and announce a serious policy toward the Middle East. And the White House reportedly conveyed that in their meeting Trump and Francis discussed "how religious communities can combat suffering in 'crisis regions, ' such as Syria, Libya and areas controlled by Islamic State terrorists". Trump's goal has been to reverse the more nuanced view that Obama established in the region and return to a less realistic view of the region that more easily lends itself to "good vs. evil" approaches. Al-Qaida is Sunni. Fifteen of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi.

"Our commitment is foremost, in this moment, to our ally Israel".

The generals who advise Mr Trump have historic reasons to be wary of Iran. The Palestinian people overwhelmingly support Abbas on this point. The first question on many people's minds when they saw it: What is that thing? They were a dramatic gesture to Trump, but there's no substance here either.

His administration is certainly wounded, but that has not stopped doing as much harm as he could in the Middle East in a short space of time. "Just so you understand, I never mentioned the word or the name "Israel",'" Mr. Trump said during an appearance with Netanyahu. Relying on one of his preferred insults, Trump said he would call the perpetrators "losers, because that's what they are". It was a flawless image of why Trump's temperament is so poorly suited to this job.

Why underground? Because Israeli children need to be protected from the second photo. Trump seems to have taken as his world history and geography tutor, his Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.

Sadly, now I have heard from many Muslims and at times from Jewish friends who talk about emigrating from the United States. Trump is attempting to shift the dynamic. In his speech in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Trump said, "Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror". This aroused mistrust of the United States from countries including Saudi Arabia.
