Occupation or Homeland?
A surprise announcement, Monday, from the Trump administration involving the so-called Israeli settlements and a policy change that the president says is meant to, "right a historical wrong."
President Obama believed that Israeli settlements in the West Bank were illegal under international law, so his policy at the UN and in Washington was to prevent new construction. The Trump administration is now reversing that policy.
“It’s more than just symbolic because here you have America saying, ‘Hey wait this is wrong, this is not true, it’s wrong and we don’t have to hold this up as an icon that you won’t have peace unless you get rid of all the settlements,’” said Mideast correspondent Julie Stahl on today’s CBN News Daily Rundown.
