    I hope very much that this is not ‘fake news’ as it came to light through the NYT from ‘unnamed’ White House officials. Tillerson is an Arabist through and through judging by his past deeds and not too far off in his approach to the Middle East from a Kerry/Clinton State Dept.. His recent meeting with the little king from Jordan, must have included promises that the US will not move the embassy to Jerusalem. Something that I’m sure has been Tillerson’s view also. He loves this ‘peace process’ and the ‘Two State Solution’.
