Palestinian Dies Hours After Arrest By Israeli Forces

Israel Strikes Gaza Targets in Response to Increasing Aggression

She said the USA will not change its decision on December 6 to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, a move that has frozen U.S. "Our negotiators are sitting right behind me ready to talk, but we will not chase after you", she said, referring to Kushner and Greenblatt.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ruled out the United States as a broker for peace with Israel on Tuesday, calling for an worldwide peace conference by mid-2018 with the key goals of full U.N. membership for the state of Palestine and a timeframe for a two-state solution.

Abbas outlined the Palestinian vision for peace and told the council: "We are ready to begin negotiations immediately in order to achieve the freedom and independence of our people".

The Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has taken a hard path by continuing to insist on peace talks, while rejecting the United States track that appears to be the only game in town.

Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital.

In response, Haley said: "The United States knows the Palestinian leadership was very unhappy with the decision to move our embassy to Jerusalem".

Such Israeli statements notwithstanding, Netanyahu has said repeatedly he is committed to the Trump administration's peace efforts, and Israel would likely follow the USA lead should talks restart.

On Abbas's call for a multilateral mechanism for the peace process, Rumley said that "for years, the Palestinian leadership has viewed the worldwide arena as an area of strength, and Abbas has sought to get them more involved in a way that creates leverage vis à vis Israel".

"We appreciated the opportunity to listen to his speech", White House spokesman Josh Raffel said in a statement emailed to JTA.

Colts' Vinatieri gets new deal, chance to set scoring record
But his numbers (29-for-34 on field goals and 22-for-24 on extra points in 2017) still speak for themselves. For the Patriots , Vinatieri played in all 160 regular-season games from 1996-2005, plus 15 playoff games.

Reiterating Palestine's commitment to hold negotiations with Israel, Abbas said it "is our strategic choice for the sake of the coming generations in our region".

By the time Haley was speaking, Abbas had left the chamber. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week the plan was "fairly well advanced".

But he told the U.N. Security Council's monthly Mideast meeting that "after decades of support, the global consensus for a two-state solution could be eroding".

Its focus has been nearly entirely on issues facing Israelis and Palestinians, and we have heard numerous same arguments and ideas over and over again.

Israel's U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon accused Abbas of "once again running away", and refusing to meet Netanyahu for 7 1/2 years "to negotiate peace".

In the interim, there should be an end to settlement activities by Israel and the USA should not move its embassy to Jerusalem, he said.

"You are part of the problem, not the solution", Danon said, addressing Abbas.

Kushner and Greenblatt are working on a new peace plan and met with the 15 Security Council ambassadors behind closed doors after the public meeting on Tuesday.
