Donald Trump's shock election as president will likely result in a U.S. tilt toward Israel that puts a Palestinian state even further out of reach, his own campaign team and analysts say.The president-elect's adviser on Israel, David Friedman, told AFP last month that he does not believe Trump sees Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank as illegal, as nearly all the rest of the international community does.Asked whether he believed in the two-state solution, the basis of more than two decades of peace negotiations, Friedman said Trump was "tremendously skeptical". Israel's right-wing has welcomed such statements and seized on Trump's victory to promote its cause – including, for some, a call to bury the two-state solution once and for all.Netanyahu congratulated Trump and pledged to work with him, and the two men spoke by telephone Wednesday.While many of Trump's statements so far have pleased the Israeli right, some analysts warn that nothing should be taken for granted.
