Pres. Trump: Israel and Palestinians Hindering Middle East Peace Process

The Palestinian Authority has been widely criticised for maintaining security coordination with Israel

Since President Trump's Jerusalem announcement, we have met with leaders in countries that could help seek new peace - Russia, China, Japan, South Africa and India, alongside members of the European Union.

Donald Trump has said that the issue of Israeli settlements "very much complicates" the prospects of a resolution with the Palestinians and that he is not sure either side in the conflict wants peace.

In an official statement, Egyptian spokesman Bassam Rady said Sisi affirmed Egypt's "clear and unwavering stance on reaching a fair and comprehensive solution that guarantees the right of Palestinian people and the establishment of an independent state with its capital in East Jerusalem in line with the June 1967 borders in accordance with worldwide resolutions".

The PA has been trying to convince Russian Federation to play a much more prominent role in the peace talks since Trump's Jerusalem declaration.

Russia, along with Iran and Turkey, has also been brokering peace talks between the government in Syria and the opposition.

Israel occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds during the Six-Day War in 1967.

Sixteen Afghan Pro-Government Fighters Killed In Taliban Attack
A high-ranking leader of the Pakistani Taliban died in a US drone attack, the terrorist organization confirmed on Monday, Feb. 12. Sayed had been killed in a February 8 drone strike in Growek region of North Waziristan, another tribal area.

For years, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam were the greatest USA -based supporters of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israeli settlements in parts of the West Bank are also a point of contention because Palestinians view the Israeli settlers as occupiers.

"He went on saying in an interview at his office in Ramallah that the Palestinians are ready, immediately, when there is seriousness in a political process that has a clear reference on the basis of global legitimacy and worldwide law, and with an honest broker and an global engagement".

As far as denouncing Palestinians is concerned, Trump has done it before. It's like rolling in place. I am right now interested in the Palestinians and Israel.

"Since this administration came in, what they say has matched what their feet are doing". "Instead, the problem is the Israeli occupation and the policies it continues to pursue". In July 2017, Modi became the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel.

At this point, instead of repeating the same error over and over again, the USA and Israel might do well to reconsider the concept of what they are labeling as "peace".
