House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is leading a congressional delegation to Israel this week amid an intraparty debate over conditioning military aid to the close US ally and Democratic efforts to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to attack Iran.
“And no matter what our party — or wherever we are within our party — the fact that we have the shared values with Israel and that is one reason for our joy in the creation of Israel as a historical miracle, the greatest accomplishment of the [20th] century,” Pelosi said at a working lunch with Knesset members.

U.S. recognizes applying Israeli law to settlements, PM says after Trump unveils plan
Details of Trump’s plan make it clear that it will lead not to a Palestinian state, but rather to Israel taking full control of the entire West Bank
Der Nahost-Friedensplan der US-Regierung richtet sich nicht an Palästinenser und Israelis, meint Torsten Teichmann. Stattdessen haben Trump und Netanyahu sich einmal mehr gegenseitig gestützt. Denn beide wollen Wahlen gewinnen.
After all, both President Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are, in effect, facing job-threatening charges — Trump for obstruction of justice and abuse of power and Bibi, who was literally indicted on Tuesday, for fraud, bribery and breach of trust. They both had a huge need to change the subject and shore up their common base of right-wing Jews and evangelicals.
