Positive Reflections: Trump's Middle East Trip: Visit to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican has brought Much Unity among the Nations of the World and Among Jews themselves!.


I have tremendous admiration for what President Donald Trump accomplished in the last few days bringing the message of Unity and Peace.  President Trump focused on what unites Jews, Christians and Arabs and for that he has earned my greatest respect.  

In Saudi Arabia, in Israel with Abbas and with the Pope his message was consistent.... to fight evil. One sensed that it was not mere lip service but that it would be, and was being,  followed up with concrete action!

Ari Fuld from Standing Together, for example, is absolutely ecstatic about Trump's visit and his speech in the Israel Museum and in Bethlehem with Abbas.  He brings numerous quotes where Donald Trump clearly shows his true feelings towards Israel.  He points out that President Trump does not speak of Palestinian rights to Jerusalem or the Mosque or for a Palestinian State.  President Trump called for the cessation of rewarding terrorists in Bethlehem. He spoke of the Jewish eternal connection to Jerusalem.

I must acknowledge that for Jews to agree on something is quite an achievement even if  I personally was out of the consensus! 

As was posted on my blog, I was disappointed  that President Trump was not more forthright about G-d's Covenant with our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and Israel's rightful claim to Judea and Samaria as a necessary precondition for real and lasting peace.  

I think I am a bit ahead of my time..
[Video] At the Israel Museum.  Netanyahu's Speech Was a Great Disappointment for Me. Trump's Speech as well. We need to look inward.... let me add now,  going step by step and with G-d's help we will triumph!

Having said this, I have come to terms with a higher Messianic goal not being realized.  I recognize that true redemption is a process and pushing things may have been counterproductive.  G-d only knows. 

I can see and acknowledge and agree with Ari Fuld that amazing progress was made this trip. My hopes and prayers, which I am sure is consistent with the Trump Administration,  are that we go from strength to strength towards true redemption, with peace and prosperity and without bloodshed. 

As Ari Fuld points out, President Trump speaks truth and never said anything to disagree with the Bible and the Prophets. 

It is the position of the Trump Administration apparently that there are things better left unsaid for the moment,  for the sake of peace.  

It is hard to dispute that Trump has unified the people with a global message that the world is capable of hearing and accepting. 

I have learned from Donald Trump the importance of delivering a message on the level of the people. His message is one of peace and unity and hopefully with G-d's help, a message that does not betray the G-d of Israel nor what is best for the Arabs.     
Fighting Nuclear Iran and ISIS and Radical Islamic Terror has brought  both Jew and Arab alike on the same team.  President Trump used that to his advantage to promote World Peace and make this world a safer place!  

The Prophesy of Redemption:

Yeshayahu - Isaiah - Chapter 2

1The word that Isaiah, son of Amoz, prophesied concerning Judah and Jerusalem.אהַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר חָזָה יְשַׁעְיָהוּ בֶּן אָמוֹץ עַל יְהוּדָה וִירוּשָׁלִָם:
2And it shall be at the end of the days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be firmly established at the top of the mountains, and it shall be raised above the hills, and all the nations shall stream to it.בוְהָיָה | בְּאַחֲרִית הַיָּמִים נָכוֹן יִהְיֶה הַר בֵּית יְהֹוָה בְּרֹאשׁ הֶהָרִים וְנִשָּׂא מִגְּבָעוֹת וְנָהֲרוּ אֵלָיו כָּל הַגּוֹיִם:
3And many peoples shall go, and they shall say, "Come, let us go up to the Lord's mount, to the house of the God of Jacob, and let Him teach us of His ways, and we will go in His paths," for out of Zion shall the Torah come forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.גוְהָלְכוּ עַמִּים רַבִּים וְאָמְרוּ לְכוּ | וְנַעֲלֶה אֶל הַר יְהֹוָה אֶל בֵּית אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב וְיֹרֵנוּ מִדְּרָכָיו וְנֵלְכָה בְּאֹרְחֹתָיו כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה וּדְבַר יְהֹוָה מִירוּשָׁלִָם:
4And he shall judge between the nations and reprove many peoples, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift the sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.דוְשָׁפַט בֵּין הַגּוֹיִם וְהוֹכִיחַ לְעַמִּים רַבִּים וְכִתְּתוּ חַרְבוֹתָם לְאִתִּים וַחֲנִיתוֹתֵיהֶם לְמַזְמֵרוֹת לֹא יִשָּׂא גוֹי אֶל גּוֹי חֶרֶב וְלֹא יִלְמְדוּ עוֹד מִלְחָמָה:
5"O house of Jacob, come and let us go in the light of the Lord."הבֵּית יַעֲקֹב לְכוּ וְנֵלְכָה בְּאוֹר יְהֹוָה:

I found the following lecture by Rabbi Alon Anava very enlightening to help me come to terms with my disappointment :)
