Talk about what? He doesn't think Israel should compromise.

This is as radical a position as the GOP candidate has taken in a general election that normally demands moderation. It's a brush aside of the past half-century-plus of diplomacy. It's a sign that Israel does not have to even come close to establishing good faith in negotiations, they can just do as they please with no remote concern of anything but total American approval.

This is extremely radical, but it's where the GOP is today. It's where the Likud are as well.
