  1. Wait, but how could this be, I thought Trump had singlehandedly brought peace to the Middle East with the historic first direct flight between the UAE and Israel?

  2. Yeah, I live in 🇮🇱, PM Natanyahu passed a “bribe” to the settlers in return for support.

    just another day with this half cripple political system.

    Ah, the settlement build in a violation to the International law.

    The exchange for the “bribe” was the settlers support.

    We have an unstable government, if Mr Natanyahu go to another election, he may lose he’s position, then introduces to trail for potential bribes and few more cases.
