Israel getting prepared for Trump visit

Palestinian Day of Rage sees escalated tensions (credit: REUTERS)

"Palestinian factions in the West Bank are calling for "A Day of Rage" to coincide with US President Donald Trump's visit to Bethlehem on Tuesday, where he is expected to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas."

I can certainly understand if the U.S. delays any move of its embassy to Jerusalem. It's nuts over there. President Trump already met with President Abbas earlier in the month and Abbas stated at that time that he wants an independent Palestinian state along pre-1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital--nothing else will be acceptable.

I don't know how President Trump can resolve or negotiate this deal in this long running battle. We know Donald Trump is good, but this will take a super hero.
