Trump Has a Shot at Arab-Israeli Peace
Donald Trump has what it takes to throw out the failed decades-old playbook.
It will remain safe to bet against any effort to resolve the more than century-old Arab-Israeli conflict. But by shredding the playbook that every effort to resolve the conflict in the past decades has followed—instead adopting seven commandments that accord with his instincts and temperament—President Trump has at least a shot at succeeding where all his predecessors have failed.
