Analysis: Pompeo skirts talk of peace plan on Israel trip

Pompeo’s mere presence in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just weeks before a national election may be symbolic of the administration’s political preference, but his main public message will be a familiar one: The U.S. has an unbreakable commitment to Israel’s security no matter who’s in charge.

„I’m going to Israel because of the important relationship we have,“ he said. „Leaders will change in both countries over time. That relationship matters no matter who the leaders are.“
