Trump’s one good foreign policy idea: neutrality in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
The Los Angeles Times - 03/09/2016
Most of what Donald Trump has to say is either ignorant, offensive or both. That’s especially true when it comes to foreign policy. Yet when he’s pushed to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict — among the more politically charged issues in this election cycle — Trump actually makes some sense.
During an MSNBC town hall meeting in South Carolina on Feb. 17, the Republican front-runner described a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians as “probably the toughest deal in the world right now to make” and promised that he would “give it one hell of a shot.” In trying to make this deal, he declared that he would be “sort of a neutral guy,” and when asked whose fault it was that no agreement had been reached so far, he parried the question and refused to assign blame to either side.
