In the wake of President Trump’s common-sense decision to acknowledge the obvious fact that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital–and, by implication, that Israel is a normal country–there is much wailing over the fate of the “peace process.”

CNN: “For Palestinians, Trump’s Jerusalem move is the end of the peace process.”

Al Jazeera: “Israel-Palestine peace process rendered irrelevant.”

CBS News: “What does Trump’s Jerusalem move mean for the peace process?”

The Guardian: “Can the Middle East peace process survive Trump’s Jerusalem decision?”

BBC: “US recognition of Jerusalem ‘kiss of death’ for peace process.”

Time: “Palestinians Say Trump’s Jerusalem Move Ends US-Led Peace Process.”
