Rubin: Israelis pleased, overall, with Trump visit

He became the first sitting USA president to visit the Western Wall.

Trump's first overseas trip as president deserves praise not only for its optics, but also for its geopolitical significance and his temperate presentation. NPR's Tamara Keith is traveling with the president. Trump emphasized that Jerusalem represents hope not only for the Jewish people, but also for all peoples and all faiths.

Trump came to power promising to be the most pro-Israel president in U.S. history.

KEITH: Trump said he would call people who commit these kinds of acts monsters, but they might like that, so. "So he was putting a lot of pressure on them that it was time to get to the table", noting Trump has "made the point several times". "So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life".

S/Korea sends warning signal to N/Korea's drone
In 2013, state media said North Korean leader Kim watched a drone attack drill on a simulated South Korean target. South Korea opened fire on North Korea after an unidentified object crossed the border .

The talks came with hundreds of Palestinians in Israeli jails on hunger strike since April 17, which Abbas referred to in his remarks after meeting Trump.

TRUMP: And it's so interesting that our meeting took place on this very disgusting morning of death to innocent, young people.

Visiting Riyadh, Jerusalem and Rome - all in countries that are respective centers of the world's three dominant religions, Islam, Judaism and Christianity - Trump carried a common theme throughout his trip: the need to unify against terrorism. The administration naively believes that the solving Israeli-Palestinian conflict, not stopping Islamic supremacism, is the key to peace in the Middle East.

"It was a great speech because he said the things he had to say and he did not say the things the other presidents usually took advantage of speeches to say", Tzachi Hanegbi, an Israeli minister and ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said after Trump's closing speech.

In a much-awaited speech at the Israel Museum, Trump pledged unstinting support for Israel, vowed that he would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and asserted that Israeli and Palestinian leaders were ready to make peace.

At the same time, the White House sent mixed signals regarding the Trump administration's official policy on the conflict, seemingly acknowledging the existence of "Palestine" while simultaneously recognizing Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. That is completely wrong.

According to the Times of Israel, son-in-law and aide to the USA president, Jared Kushner, told Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog on Tuesday, before their departure, that the White House was preparing to quickly act on promises made to restart peace talks between the Israel and the Palestinians.

Jews are allowed to visit but not pray there to avoid provoking tensions, but Palestinians fear Israel will seek to assert further control over the site. "That's like if your wife said "Are you having an affair" and you said 'I am NOT sleeping with Jenna!'"

Rouhani said. "Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?" "They should be picked by the people". Trump landed in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, the first stop of his first foreign tour since becoming president.
