   1. Will Trump be different? 

 

Will Trump be different? Israeli patriots expect him to be. After all, he postures as an enemy of Iran and ISIS. But, what evidence will be diagnostic that Trump really is delivering on his Mideast promises?

 

    2. Can Trump buck the trend?

 

Can Trump (assuming he wants to) transform US foreign policy in the Middle East? To get a sense for how difficult this might be, we must appreciate how traditional the pro-jihadi policy has been. (It wasn’t just Obama.)

 

  3. Is Trump the boss, or is it somebody else?

 

Is US policy-making run by a bipartisan elite cartel? Perhaps the president is a figurehead; the media show changes, but the long-term goals—chosen by the CFR—are always the same. If so, Trump’s Middle East policies will feel different, but they will yield familiar fruits.

 

    4. Who makes foreign policy for Trump?

 

When we examine the backgrounds of those chosen to make foreign policy for Trump, we find they are Establishment figures with a history of supporting pro-jihadi policies.

 

   5. Are Trump’s early moves in the pro- jihadi tradition?

 

Some early evidence is already in. Trump is signing executive orders fast. Is he fighting jihadism? Is he defending Israel?

 

   6. Why the pro-jihadi tradition?

 

Even granting that the US is run by a power-elite cartel, it may not be obvious why that cartel would want to support jihadism. We attempt to explain that here.
