'Zionist hawk', 'stalwart friend': strong words greet Bolton nomination

'Zionist hawk', 'stalwart friend': strong words greet Bolton nominationU.S. President Donald Trump’s choice of John Bolton as national security adviser provoked strong reactions worldwide on Friday – and few stronger than in the bitterly-divided Middle East. Some commentators saw it as another nail in the coffin of the Obama-era agreement between Iran and world powers to limit Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, already cast into grave doubt by Trump himself. Others expected Bolton to further undermine any remaining slender hopes of a “two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict emerging in the foreseeable future.
