President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "are very compatible" — and "the best solution is for both men to use their different talents" to negotiate peace in the region, famed civil-rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"They both believe that business and economics play a great role in politics," the Harvard Law School professor emeritus, told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "They're both pragmatists. They both want to see a solution to this."

Dershowitz is the author of the book, "Electile Dysfunction: A Guide for Unaroused Voters."

"The time is right for negotiating a resolution," Dershowitz added. "Trump's talents lie in business. Benjamin Netanyahu has been a superb negotiator in terms of domestic politics and being able to keep his coalition together, even though they're enormously diverse forces within the coalition.

"Trump will put pressure on the Palestinians, as well as the Israelis, whereas [President Barack] Obama only put pressure on the Israelis."

Dershowitz noted "they really have to do something about" the U.N. Security Council's resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The Obama administration abstained on the vote in December.

"It makes peace much more difficult, because it takes away Israel's bargaining position in terms of the Western Wall, the access road to Hebrew University and Hadassah Hospital and the Jewish Quarter," Dershowitz told Hayworth.

"That has to be taken into account — but I think if there's a will, the resolution, the two-state solution, is an obvious answer."
