Melania really does not want to hold Donald Trump's hand

The area, captured by Israel in 1967, is not sovereign Israeli territory and Palestinians there are not Israeli citizens and do not have the right to vote.

That would be consistent with Trump's final hours in Israel and the West Bank. I've heard about you so much from my mother ... He's already been sighted at the Western wall in Israel, making his prayers. Trump even made a photograph of his brief moment of solitude there the cover image on his Twitter page.

Some speculated Donald Trump only reached for his wife's hand after he noticed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was holding hands with his wife as the two couples walked down the red carpet together.

On "The Tonight Show", Jimmy Fallon also took a turn at ribbing the president, who had said he had arrived in Israel from "the Middle East".

The infrequently affectionate couple was taking a tour of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City when a photographer managed to get a picture of the two staring up at Michelangelo's famed painted ceiling while holdings hands.

While the president reiterated his desire to broker a peace deal, his visit produced no announcement on steps toward renewing negotiations.

"Because he's an unusual person and unpredictable, he has some leverage", Shapiro told JTA. "He was clearly moved by his visit to Jerusalem and its holy sites".

Speculation about the clip began Monday after the first couple was filmed arriving at Ben Gurion International Airport.

Speaking alongside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Trump offered his condolences and condemned the "wicked ideology" that led to the attack. "We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice". The worldwide community doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over east Jerusalem and Palestinians regard it as the future capital of an independent Palestinian state. They said the papers were signed but not filed.

On Monday, Palestinians also held a general strike in support of the prisoners.

It does not help that Netanyahu is under police investigation for alleged corruption, which he denies.

Shortly after Air Force One touched down in Rome, Italy, on Wednesday (AEST time), all eyes were on President Trump and his wife of 12 years as they exited the plane, waving to waiting crowds. After Israel and the Palestinian territories, Trump will head to the Vatican, and to Brussels and Italy for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and G7 meetings.

Melania's communications director Stephanie Grisham said the first lady wasn't aware about the situation at all.

"In this spirit of hope, we come to Bethlehem, asking God for more peaceful, safe and far more tolerant world for all of us", Mr. Trump said.

But Brom and Shapiro agreed that Trump's domestic situation does not affect his clout with Israel and the Palestinians.

Both sides are wary of being accused of resisting Trump's peace efforts or being cast as obstructing the resumption of talks. But that would require skillful diplomacy.

"The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comfort, must be driven out from our society forever", Trump said.
