President Trump is determined to avoid – rather than repeat – the mistakes of his predecessors, fending off pressure and threats by rogue regimes, and therefore advancing US interests, law and heritage and this is served by moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.
Evidence of the high rate-of-return on the annual US investment in Israel, which is erroneously defined as “foreign aid.” Israel is neither foreign to the US, nor is it a supplicant; it has been an unconditional junior partner of the US in the liberty-driven battle against rogue regimes.
Realizing the irrelevance of the Palestinian issue to the 1,400 year old endemic Mid-East turbulence, in general, and the eruption of the Arab Tsunami which has engulfed the Middle East since 2010, in particular, Trump concluded that the Palestinian issue represents a Red Herring, dwarfed by “major league” Middle East challenges/threats to regional and US interests
The confidence of US allies in the Middle East – facing lethal threats internally and externally - was undermined by President Obama’s worldview but has been enhanced by President Trump’s State of the Union,
Happy Tu Bishvat!
Apparently, Trump does not embrace the myth of the Palestinian issue as – supposedly - a core cause of regional instability, a crown-jewel of Arab policy-makers, nor the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

When examining the impact of the JCPOA on the US national security, Congress should assess the dramatic erosion of the US posture of deterrence, as reflected by the surging geo-strategic posture of Russia
The “land-for-peace” attempts have made light of the collaboration of the Palestinian establishment with Nazi Germany, the Soviet Bloc, the Ayatollahs, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea.
The temporary structure of the Sukkah highlights the historical significance of the permanent Jewish State in the Land of Israel Chag Sameach!

Where is the Arab Tsunami heading? The chaotic intra-Arab roller-coaster may have shifted, temporarily, to a relatively-lower gear, but it is surging on brutally!
Despite showering the Palestinian issue with substantial talk, the Arab/Islamic walk has mostly been directed elsewhere, Arabs have never shed blood nor dedicated their economic power on behalf of Palestinians
Contrary to political-correctness, the Palestinian issue has never been the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict, a crown-jewel of Arab policy-makers, nor a core-cause of regional turbulence
Will Trump and Tillerson embrace Middle East reality and reject political correctness thus sparing the US further erosion of its posture of deterrence in the Middle East and beyond? We shall soon see...
