Trump arrives in Israel, hoping to rekindle peace process

"What's happened with Iran has brought numerous other parts of the Middle East toward Israel, and you could say that if there's a benefit, that would be the benefit", Trump said.

Standing beside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump condemned the attack, which killed 22 and injured 59 at a concert by pop singer Ariana Grande, as an act of "savage murder" and a "heinous attack upon humanity".

His visit came the day before Israel is due to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the city's unification in the 1967 Six-Day War, when the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, returned to the Jews after 2,000 years. 'We can not stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people - and in today's attack it was mostly innocent children.

Hundreds of protesters blocked roads in cities and towns of the West Bank on Monday. Oren said he understood that doing so would be controversial and would anger some Palestinians, but he thinks the repercussions will be greater if Trump backs down from his promise. President Donald Trump is opening his first visit to Israel Monday, sayin. Yet, if past is precedent, Arab leaders won't transgress Palestinian red lines: they would have much to lose in public support and quite little to gain.

Israel's security cabinet passed a package of economic measures late Sunday aimed at bolstering the Palestinian economy as a confidence-building gesture ahead of the Trump visit.

Trump did not visit the Noble Sanctuary, the Muslim site that houses the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is just steps from the Western Wall.

Lawmaker Oren Hazan, a politician in Netanyahu's Likud party with a reputation for inappropriate antics, gave Trump a version of his own characteristically aggressive handshake.

Last night, Mr Trump defended himself against allegations that he divulged classified information in a recent meeting with Russian diplomats, saying alongside Mr Netanyahu that he never identified Israel in his Oval Office conversation.

JERUSALEM - It took President Donald Trump three days to loosen his tight hold on message discipline.

"It is a private visit by the president, and it's not your business", a USA official said last week, according to Israel's Channel Two News.

Security was tight, with the usually bustling Old City, where the Western Wall is located, essentially on lockdown and the plaza leading to the site cleared. "The club has been in Jerusalem since before the creation of Israel, and thus the flag is not simply an item on a uniform; it is part of who we are".

As things stand now, though, Rubio said he does not believe the conditions for the "sort of peace we all desire" exist.

An Israel Airport Authority spokesman said he was not aware of any direct flights ever having landed in Israel from the kingdom.

President Donald Trump's motorcade is entering biblical Bethlehem in the West Bank, passing through an opening in Israel's towering separation barrier. Subsequent reports suggested that the source of the intelligence was Israel but, crucially, did not allege that Trump had mentioned this fact to the Russians.

"The focus is on how upsetting it'd be to Palestinians if the United States recognized Jerusalem as the Jewish capital", Oren said. Never mentioned the word "Israel".
