American Jewish Leaders Call Trump’s Ideas on Israel 'Terrifying' and 'Bizarre' (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)
NEW YORK – Liberal American Jewish leaders responded with concern Thursday after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting, calling the president's willingness to drop the two-state solution "terrifying" and even "bizarre".
However, others like the Zionist Organization of America's Morton Klein, struck a different tone and found it cause for optimism.
Netanyahu said at the press conference, “For the first time in my lifetime and in the life of my country, Arab countries in the region do not see Israel as an enemy but increasingly as an ally,” the prime minister said. “This change creates an unprecedented opportunity to strengthen security and reach peace.”
What he meant, claimed Klein, is “the possibility of having some sort of confederation of Jordan with the Palestinian Arabs who live in Judea and Samaria.”
