Trump officials promote joint action against Iran and downplay Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, Los Angeles Times

“In a choreographed show of rare unity, officials from the United States, Arab states and Israel joined together at a Middle East peace conference Thursday to pledge tough action against Iran, calling that nation a threat to all.
