Krauthammer: Trump Was Doing Netanyahu a ‘Favor’ on Settlements

‘I thought Bibi was going to break into song at one point’

KRAUTHAMMER: "For Bibi and for the Israelis it was an unbelievably successful event. I thought Bibi was going to break into song at one point. The two-state solution is so longer the holy grail. It’s the most likely in the most supported around the world but it was good to break the taboo of speaking about other possibilities and it only came into effect 17 years ago. This is a 60-year conflict. For a long time people had other ideas. The pressure for a Palestinian state is lessened on Israel and it’s’s of saying to  Palestinians you conduct terror. You teach your children to hate. We are not going to reward you with statehood unless you do it in negotiations. And I think people misunderstand the settlement issue. That was trump doing Netanyahu a favor.r."
