Trump leaves Israel with no sign peace talks in the works

"There is a growing realization among your Arab neighbors that they have a common cause with you in the threat posed by Iran", President Trump said in Israel on Monday.

Trump on Tuesday wrapped up the Middle East leg of his first foreign trip as president. As Trump seeks to end a conflict that has resisted the best efforts of each of his predecessors going back to Ronald Reagan, he'd be wise to keep these words in the forefront of his mind.

Palestinian activists have also noted that Trump's rhetoric with regard to Israel and Palestine is no different from previous United States administrations.

A prominent Israeli parliamentarian on Tuesday offered a buoyant assessment of Donald Trump's official visit to the Jewish state, which.

Wearing a black skullcap, he became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City, the most holy site at which Jews can pray.

Husam Zumlot, a former adviser to Abbas who is now the Palestinian ambassador in Washington, said the contours of any deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians were well known to both sides.

PRESIDENT MAHMOUD ABBAS, Palestinian Authority (through interpreter): Our fundamental problem is with the occupation and settlements, and failure of Israel to recognize the state of Palestine, in the same way we recognize it.

Mr Abbas is an unpopular leader, according to polls, and the Palestinian political landscape is split between his Fatah party and Hamas, the Islamist movement that is in control in the Gaza Strip and opposes negotiations with Israel.

Trump arrived in Bethlehem by motorcade, crossing a checkpoint at Israel's controversial separation wall, and was greeted by Abbas and other dignitaries outside the city's presidential palace.

He said that his meetings earlier in the day with Abbas led him to believe that "the Palestinians are ready to reach for peace". We need to understand the situation as one where there's an occupier and an occupied.

President Donald Trump decried the "evil losers" who carried out the attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Abbas has also agreed to work towards a two-state solution, which is not supported by the majority of Palestinians.

Israel has divvied up the West Bank into 3 areas.

In Bethlehem, Trump nodded to Israeli complaints of payments by the Palestinian Authority to families of Palestinians jailed in Israel and those killed in attacks on Israelis.

It later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the global community and claims the entire city as its capital. A move of the U.S. Embassy would be historic, Williams said.

He will meet Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday.
