Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said yesterday that Trump spoke to him “clearly” about a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as opposed to ambiguity the president has used in public, KOL HAOLAM reports.
Dershowitz, who is Jewish and close to Netanyahu, met with Trump at Mar-A-Lago two weeks ago. “Clearly he was talking about a two-state solution. He was not in any way suggesting, at least in his conversation with me, a one-state solution,” Dershowitz said. He said Trump is “anxious to convey the message that he really wanted to have a peace agreement” and believes that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas “is anxious to make a deal,” he said. Dershowitz added that he was “pleasantly surprised” by Trump’s knowledge of the conflict.
