Kushner knocks Abbas, says Mideast peace plan will be published soon

Kushner knocks Abbas, says Mideast peace plan will be published soon

Though the trip is being billed as non-political, and places a special emphasis on technology and joint Israeli-Arab projects, the Duke of Cambridge will also be meeting with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders and visiting landmark Jerusalem sites at the heart of the century-old conflict.

Al-Ayyam said well-known Israeli lawyer, Felicia Langer, who was among the first to defend Palestinians in Israeli courts, has died at age 88 in Germany, where she lived after leaving Israel escaping harassment and threats from right-wing Israelis.

"The way in which you opened your doors to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, not to mention your longstanding commitments to Palestinian refugees, is remarkable".

Recall that the Palestinian authority announced a boycott of the U.S. after the statement of the President of trump on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the transfer to this city the American Embassy. It remains unclear how the Trump administration would proceed with a peace plan without Palestinian cooperation.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday that he met twice with Kushner and Greenblatt this weekend and discussed the peace process, regional issues and "how to solve the humanitarian situation in Gaza without strengthening Hamas". Abbas has refused any contact with Trump's administration since Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital at the end of previous year.

The Palestinian Authority has repeatedly said the U.S. "deal of the century" for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict falls way short of their expectations for a lasting and just peace settlement. The Americans were scheduled to hold other talks Saturday before returning to Washington.

Relentless Cilic edges Kyrgios to set up Djokovic final
World No.6 Cilic did not offer up one break point opportunity in their one hour and 25 minute meeting. But it was the double fault midway through the match which Djokovic feels cost him so dearly.

Palestinian leaders have blasted the Trump negotiating team in recent days.

"I must say that there was total support for our positions and actions to ensure the security of the State of Israel", Netanyahu said.

That coincides with the language of the worldwide consensus and global law, which hold that East Jerusalem and the West Bank are Israeli-occupied territory.

Wasel Abu Yusef, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, claimed the U.S. has failed to win the backing of some Arab countries for its peace plan. The Palestinians consider that control a violation of any sovereignty they may gain. "If anyone walked away, it was the Trump emissaries whose plan has nothing to do with a just and lasting peace and a lot to do with normalizing the Israeli apartheid regime", he stressed.

The transcript of Kushner's interview was made public by the White House. There have been suggestions that it would give several eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods, including suburbs, to the Palestinians, but not any part of the heart of the holy city.

This Hamas-provoked tit-for-tat resembles similar sequences of events that took place two weeks ago in a violent escalation between the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Israel. Egypt and Jordan are the only Arab countries to have formal diplomatic relations with Israel.
