President Donald Trump's courageous and rightfully so announcement that the USA will recognise Jerusalem as capital of Israel.
This announcement shows that this is an important step to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestineans - if it is not the only way! It can restart the dialogue for peace in the Middle East. Much has happened since Donald Trump's earlier courageous speech (I dare say) at the Arab Islamic American Summit on May 21, 2017. It is all in accordance with his views as expressed in his speech at the Christians United For Israel convention before he was elected as 45th President of the United States.
It seems that the crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman, is realizing already for quite some time that the modern times will gradually become part of the Islamic world. Covert relations between his country and Israel are therefore plausible. Donald Trump's speech on Jerusalem can be named the third major step to further the new era.
