Trump pushes for Mideast peace, but avoids thorny details
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at the Western Wall

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Cabinet, along with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, awaited Trump on the tarmac, fresh from quarrels over how much Israel is prepared to compromise for peace and wary of the deals the US president struck over the weekend in a mass meeting with Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia.
"So many young, lovely innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life", Trump said, echoing the theme he presented during his meetings with Arab leaders in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
After Israel, Trump's marathon maiden foreign trip will take him to the Vatican for an audience with Pope Francis, to Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and to Sicily for a meeting of leaders of the Group of Seven major industrial nations.
Trump is heard telling Mrs. Netanyahu his wife was an admirer, and she was quick to return the compliment.
The 110-billion-dollar arms deal between the USA and Saudi Arabia not only would not contribute to security in Southwest Asia, but would lead to insecurity and tensions in the region, which is the world's hub of energy, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, a top military aide to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Tuesday.
The moment was abrupt interruption of an otherwise warm and smooth welcome for Trump to the Holy Land.

Earlier Monday, on Trump's first visit to Israel as president, he said he sees a growing recognition among Muslim nations that they share a "common cause" with Israel in their determination to counter threats posed by Iran. Trump touched it in prayer and, adhering to tradition, placed a note in a deep crevice. -Israeli intelligence cooperation is "terrific", attempting to dismiss concerns that the incident violated the confidentiality of an agreement with Israel. The U.S. has never recognized Israeli sovereignty over parts of the Old City seized in the 1967 war. But it was another stark reminder for the president that his troubles at home, including the investigation of his ties to Russian Federation and his firing of FBI Director James Comey, have followed him across the ocean on his multi-nation journey. The Trump administration drew the ire of some Israelis this week when officials declined to state that the Western Wall was part of Israel, as has been US policy. Still, White House officials had downplayed the prospects for a breakthrough on his trip, saying it was important to manage ambitions as they wade into terrain that has tripped up more-experienced diplomats. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, speaking to reporters onboard Air Force One, said the U.S. could provide clarifications to Israel about the disclosure but said, "I don't know that there's anything to apologize for".
In a separate comment reflecting heated rhetoric between Tehran and Riyadh, former commander of the Revolutionary Guard, Mohsen Rezaei tweeted: "Terrorist explosion in Manchester is the result of Trump's sword dance with the chief of terrorists".
