Al-Sisi Draws High Marks for Cheerful Meeting with Netanyahu
Sisi met with a number of Jewish leaders in NY and discussed with them the USA efforts to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It followed mediation in Cairo between Mr Abbas' Fatah party and its arch-rival, Hamas.

The "Blond Republican" - her words, not ours - and daughter of U.S. Sen. While ABC refused to comment, an insider claims that the decision to tap McCain to join the show is because the ABC show needs a stronger conservative voice following Elisabeth Hasselbeck's exit back in 2013. The 32-year-old announced her exit from Fox News' "Outnumbered", which she had co-hosted since November, on September 15, stating that she was "leaving to focus on other things". In a tweet on Wednesday, McCain, referring to her father's recent brain cancer diagnosis, wrote: "What more must my family be put through right now?" As for McCain, she is conservative. Over the years, "The View" has played a game of musical chairs with its co-hosts. Previous hosts since then have included Sherri Shepherd, Rosie O'Donnell, Nicolle Wallace, Rosie Perez, Jenny McCarthy, Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins, Candace Cameron Bure and Bila.

'This has been a really great experience, ' the television personality said.

The View is seeing its highest ratings in three years, averaging almost 3 million viewers a day, fueled by the fraught political environment around the Trump administration.
