DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 15, 2017, 9:09 AM (IDT)

Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu is expected to get a warm reception on Wednesday when he meets US President Donald Trump, who is very supportive of Israel. It comes after eight years in which the administration of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, viewed Netanyahu as an obstacle to peace in the Middle East. Will a two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict be raised by Trump? It seems unlikely, as a senior White House official said just hours before the meeting that “Maybe, maybe not. It’s something the two sides have to agree to. It’s not for us to impose that vision.” Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law who was put in charge of Israel-Palestinian negotiations, is expected to participate in the meeting between the two leaders. Senior White House officials expect the president to ask Israel to hold direct talks with the Palestinians mediated by Kushner in order to reach an agreement. Netanyahu will praise Trump over his tough stance on the issue of Iran, which greatly concerns the Israeli leader, and may suggest changing the nuclear agreement between Western powers and Iran.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
