Trump and the Peace Process: the Palestinian Perspective

Daoud Kuttab, Journalist and author

Where does the peace process go from here? After a year in which  Russia and North Korea absorbed the United States’ diplomatic energies, attention rapidly refocused on the Middle East on December 6 with President Trump’s controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The announcement caused dismay across the Arab world, and beyond, leading many to question whether the US can play an impartial role in any future peace negotiations. Veteran Palestinian journalist Daoud Kuttab will consider whether there is still a viable path to peace and if the Trump administration might lead - or impede - this effort.
