JPost: US President Donald Trump will repeat his opposition to Israeli​ settlement​ ​growth​ ​in the West Bank during his first visit to the region next week–​ ​and expects the Israeli government to acknowledge that his position has been heard​, ​​a senior White House official​ ​said on Thursday.

The president will visit Jerusalem and Bethlehem on Monday and Tuesday, meeting with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders, after attending an “Arab Islamic summit” in Riyadh over the weekend. more …

Opinion: This definitely is not good. After a 100% guarantee the liberal wing of the Trump advisory team must be in charge. I’m guessing Jared Kushner.

Curbing West Ban settlement activity means very little has changed. Settlement activity is code for building houses in Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital. It means that President Trump has not let go of the two-state solution nonsense, and that on June 1, he will likely sign a 6 month waiver on moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Look how powerful Edom has become. Not one US president in 69 years has had the courage to stand up for Jacob.

The Psalmist wrote Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them—
he remains faithful forever.” Psalm 146:5-6

Edom wants Jerusalem so bad that he is willing to kill and die for it. Edom who is Esau (Genesis 36:1) will never have the land, it was given to Jacob 4000 years ago:

“May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness— an abundance of grain and new wine. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you.

Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. 
May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed.” Genesis 27:28-29 NIV.

The President’s trip begins today and the stakes are tremendous.
