US-Israel Relationship 'Stronger Than Ever,' Kushner Tells Netanyahu — WATCH

Israel lifts year-long ban on lawmakers' Al Aqsa visits

The responses would determine how Adalah would tackle the legality of the bylaws in court.

The State Department policy appears to be a reflection of a general policy of the administration.

"Until such investigations happen and perpetrators are held accountable, we think that providing military aid to the Egyptian government risks complicity in these abuses", Human Rights Watch said.

The last round of talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians reached an impasse in 2014, mainly over Israel's expansion of the Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Recently, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that he is positively in favor of the establishment of a Kurdish state in the Middle East and further called Kurds "brave, pro-Western people who share our values". This spells trouble for Ramallah's bank account, and the numbers on it are not lying.

Even if there appears to be no obvious partner for peace in the region at the moment, Trump does not seem ready to table his peace plans.

Like many colonial powers preferring divide and rule techniques to outright conquest, it would appear that Israel has decided to do with the Kurds what the British once did with the Zionists: support their claims to someone else's land.

ESTRIN: The Palestinians have a clear agenda for Kushner's visit. Evidence in the case indicated that payments during the second Palestinian intifada were approved by then-PA President Yasser Arafat. Trump appointed noted pro-settlement hardliner David Friedman as ambassador, in a move that alarmed both Palestinians and progressive Israelis.

At the time, Palestinians had accused Israel of attempting to alter the site's historical system of prayer and visiting rights, referred to as the "status quo".

Or will he propose a top-down policy? "These issues have always been a passion of mine, something I worked on very closely" with both former Gov. Rick Perry and Cruz, she said.

Ibrahim Fraihat is Associate Professor of International Conflict Resolution at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies and Affiliate Scholar at Georgetown University in Qatar.

"The prime minister looks forward to continuing those discussions in the weeks ahead", it said.

Israeli authorities equipped the Temple Mount, which is the third holiest site in Islam, with metal detectors and surveillance video cameras to monitor its territory after shooting at the site on July 14 left two Israeli police officers killed.

First it was the only kindergarten for Jabal al-Baba Bedouin community destroyed on August 21.

"We are totally unhappy that the American administration conducted no pressure on Israel to stop settlement activities that are killing any potential for peace", ABC News quoted PLO Executive Committee member Mustafa Barghouti.

Some of that is clearly intentional-the White House kept much of the information regarding the trip under wraps-but some is indicative of the mistrust and skepticism surrounding Trump's approach to regional relations. "(U.S. Secretary of State Rex) Tillerson has invited contempt before by doing unjustifiable things, but perhaps they are learning a lesson".

According to the Anadolu news agency, the visit is scheduled for August 28.

Greenblatt and Powell were also in the meeting with Kushner and Netanyahu this morning.

Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, is in Cairo as part of an effort to revive Mideast peace talks. He is the author of Unfinished Revolutions (Yale University Press, 2016). "But after 24 years of negotiations, we have not gotten anything", The Times of Israel reported Tuesday. And where Kushner and his team will find them is anybody's guess.
