Trump in New Foreign Policy Doctrine: Israel Is Not the Cause of Middle East’s Problems

President Donald Trump will declare that China and Russia are competitors seeking to challenge US power and erode its security and prosperity, in a national security strategy he will lay out in a speech on Monday.

“They are determined to make economies less free and less fair, to grow their militaries, and to control information and data to repress their societies and expand their influence,” according to excerpts of Trump’s strategy released by the White House.

On the Middle East, the strategy will point out that “for generations the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has been understood as the prime irritant preventing peace and prosperity in the region. Today, the threats from radical jihadist terrorist organizations and the threat from Iran are creating the realization that Israel is not the cause of the region’s problems. States have increasingly found common interests with Israel in confronting common threats.”

    Philip Giraldi’s head will explode, as will that of all British journalists who write about the Near East.

    How dare he make such an outrageous statement.

    I am sure Trump is going to cause Muslim riots throughout the world until he acknowledges that Israel is the cause of all unrest!

    Honesty and common sense, what a refreshing change.

    His statement on Israel will come as news to the State Department.

    When anyone looks around the world, not just the Mid East, it should be obvious that it is Islam, not Israel that is the cause of most of this planet’s problems.

      But CNN told me that for over thirteen hundred years that the Middle East had been at peace, that is until 1948 and the creation of Israel!

        I am sure the CBC, BBC and New York Times are spreading the very same crap.

        I stand corrected. If CNN says it, it must be true. Since CNN is known for such honesty, integrity and unbiased reporting, I guess I’m in no place to argue with CNN, the Crescent Notnews Network.
