Forecast 2017

In 2017, after a century of war and destruction, there are a few things we can look forward to:

  • The Obama Administration will end
  • The Trump Administration will start and hopefully will stem the flood of illegal immigrants and drugs into the USA, cut taxes and cut funding to the UN, and especially UNRWA
  • Trump will move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem
  • Trump may do a deal with Putin to ensure a peaceful relationship with Russia
  • Mosul and Raqqa will eventually be captured and IS will be defeated
  • Iraq will fall apart into three distinct regions, Shia, Sunni and Kurd
  • There will be a ceasefire in Syria except for further attacks on IS and Al Qaeda affiliates, but the civil war in Syria will continue
  • The Russians will attempt to form a Federal Syria from the pieces controlled by different groups, but this will not succeed
  • Britain will start the process to leave the EU, which may cause great disruption to the EU (they are no friends of ours)
  • There will be an expansion of Islamic terrorism throughout Europe
  • All countries will have to institute the kind of security measures that Israel has been using for years against Islamic terrorists
  • The PA will start to break-down, and Pres. Abbas will retire, leading to more internal strife
  • Under Pres. Trump the US will give up the futile game of trying to force Israel and the Palestinians to make peace via a two state solution
  • China has declared that all imports of ivory will be banned

Don’t blame me if these predictions don’t come true, the future is an unknown country.
