So that's an interesting news to wake up to! Israel no longer in the Middle East according to Trump. The man who said Hillary had no stamina to be at the White House is now too "exhausted" after a couple of days of flying and halal Steak (with Ketchup) he was served in Saudi Arabia. But of course, ignorance has nothing to do with this, it's the side dish or perhaps the main course. 
Trump's second stop in the region was in Israel where he told the assembled ministers "we just got back from the Middle East". There, one sentence which negates anything from Sykes Picot agreement, renders the Oslo ones useless, makes Hamas a non-entity and take note Hizbullah, your enemy is as real as the windmills that Don Quixote fought.
It would have  been funny had it not been so serious.
