President Trump: Israelis and Arabs share 'common cause' against Iran


DUBAI/LONDON Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday stability could not be achieved in the Middle East without Tehran's help, responding to criticism of the Islamic Republic from U.S. President Donald Trump who is visiting the region.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Monday that President Trump will not apologize to Israeli officials for sharing highly classified intelligence about ISIS to the Russians.

"This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it".

Mr Trump made one symbolic gesture in bridging the gap between Israel and the Arab world. "There's something there. There's a tremendous hatred there", Trump told Anderson Cooper a year ago. HANNITY: There you have a tale of two presidents.

Mr Trump, who had previously suggested that it would be easier than anticipated to solve the conflict which has vexed his predecessors for decades, said conditions are right in both Israel and the Arab world to strike what he has called "the ultimate deal". But addressing the leaders of 55 Muslim-majority countries, Trump said the meeting marked a "new chapter" that would bring lasting benefits for citizens of the United States and those of the countries being represented at the meeting.

Trump began his trip this weekend in Saudi Arabia, where he gave a speech revealing a more measured stance towards Islam compared to much of his campaign rhetoric, as well as a turn away from the Obama-era policies towards the region.

"Theres no question that they're liberalizing their society, and I think the other thing that was fascinating to me, there was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time we were there", Ross said in an appearance on CNBC.
