The Middle East is weighing in on the U.S. presidential elections.

FOX's Jessica Golloher in Jerusalem has the details:

Some here in Israel are happy that Donald Trump is President-Elect, especially settlers because many say they feel that Trump will be more forgiving of settlements than Hillary Clinton would.

Josh Hastern lives in Efrat:

(Hastern) "We believe that Donald Trump truly understands the issues and Mike Pence, of course, as the VP truly understands the strong U.S.-Israel relations and that he truly understands that Judea and Samaria is the heartland of the Jewish people here in the land Israel."

This as Palestinian presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh says peace depends on a just solution to the Palestinian cause based on international legality which will eradicate extremism and chaos.

In Jerusalem, Jessica Golloher, FOX News.
