editor 25 February 2017

By New York Daily News.. Setting aside a perplexing remark by President Trump, he and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a strong and important show of unity at the White House Wednesday (February 15, 2017). Bad news first: Trump’s apparent ignorance of the two-state solution, which for very good reason has been the basis for Mideast peace negotiations for decades. “I’m looking at two states and one state.

editor 24 February 2017

By Alan Dershowitz.. The time has come for the US to tell the Palestinians that they must negotiate with Israel if they want a Palestinian state, and must agree to end the conflict. President Donald Trump raised eyebrows when he mentioned the possibility of a one-state solution. The context was ambiguous and no one can know for sure what message he was intending to convey.

The disciples are not asking about ‘the end of the world’. (more…)
