Trump's son-in-law meets Netanyahu on Middle East peace trip

Charlottesville exposes Israeli and US hypocrisy

The three met Tuesday with Jordan's King Abdullah.

Greenblatt and Powell were also in the meeting with Kushner and Netanyahu this morning. Ted Cruz, to work full-time under Greenblatt. "You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel]". "The employees' salaries have been paid by the PA since 2007".

Abu Rdainah was referring to a 2002 Arab League initiative that offers Israel diplomatic recognition from Arab countries in return for a statehood deal with the Palestinians and a full Israeli withdrawal from territory captured in the 1967 war. He needs to apply pressure, especially on settlements, as they have been the primary reason behind the failure of previous US mediation efforts.

APN's President and CEO Debra DeLee said: "We've come to expect flippant ad libs from President Trump, turning established policy on its head, seemingly at his whim".

Then at the weekend, Abbas was quoted as telling a delegation of left-wing Israeli lawmakers that despite multiple meetings with U.S. envoys, he still "can't understand" Trump's position on the conflict. Dogged by low approval ratings, failure to pass major domestic legislation, and a widely-panned response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump has devoted little time to efforts abroad. Given the frequent resignations and high turnover in his administration, it is questionable whether Trump even has time to think about the Palestinian-Israeli peace process. "They are preoccupied with other issues, and there is a feeling that they have very limited attention span", an unnamed senior Israeli minister said to Jewish Insider.

More than 600,000 Israelis now live in the settlements. "We are no longer in a crisis mode". "However, we ask Hamas to accept our political program and elections". But there's a bigger problem: No one can actually work out what Kushner's plan is. Parallel movement, I think, is the way to go. Powerful is the sense of peace as one lowers towards the silver gilded disc, where the cross is believed to have stood...

The views expressed by this author are their own and are not the views of The Hill. The throngs of faithful walk past, pray in silence, light candles, some leave small prayers on paper as they enter the inner sanctum sanctorium. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is embroiled in a burgeoning corruption investigation at home, which includes charges of bribery and fraud. Ted Cruz (R - Texas), who was also on the National Security Council joined Greenblatt's team as senior director of international negotiations, Politico reported. The claim is used as political manipulation and blackmail of anyone that supports Palestinians and opposes Israel's illegal occupation and settlement enterprise on Palestinian lands.

Kushner met Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Jeddah, before flying to Doha for a meeting with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

In recent months, Israeli authorities have made bold moves to consolidate control over the occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds, which is internationally considered as the capital of any future Palestinian state.

"Talk of scandal and indictment is swirling around Netanyahu and is pushing him to circle the wagons and reach out to his right", Aaron David Miller of the Woodrow Wilson Center wrote for CNN this week.
