This paper provides an analysis of US President Donald Trump’s visit to Israel, highlighting reflections on the US-Israeli relations on the one hand, and on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the other. The paper hypothesises that Trump’s visit took on many implications and interpretations. In the final analysis, however, Trump’s visit broke away from the US historical position, particularly the former Obama administration’s position towards the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It also reflected an adoption of Arab positions in the region.
The paper highlights that the Palestinian side appeared as the absent party in Trump’s visit.
