APN Outraged by Trump Administration's Backtracking on Two-State Solution — Press Release

Residents of the village had been fighting a legal battle against their eviction for 13 years

There's no doubt that persistence in peacemaking is critical. "You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel]".

"There is not a glimmer of hope the administration will change its politics and positions".

Rights groups welcomed the U.S. decision to withhold aid, but some were quick to make a distinction between the U.S. provision of economic and military assistance to Egypt.

"A one-state outcome risks destroying Israel's Jewish and Democratic character, denies the Palestinians fulfillment of their legitimate aspirations, and would leave both Israelis and Palestinians embroiled in an endless and intractable conflict for generations to come", the missive Said.

The timing for this trip couldn't be worse. Abbas and the Palestinian Authority, along with Israel, have been squeezing Gaza by reducing basic supplies to its Hamas rulers, including electricity.

Majdalani added that the Palestinians "consider giving the Americans additional time for consultations without them taking clear positions as a green light for [Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu to destroy the two-state solution and impose facts on the ground through settlement building".

After a reporter cited Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's confusion about U.S. goals and asked, "Why are you so loath to... to recommit yourself to the two-state solution?"

Commenting on the visit, former National Security Adviser Maj.

Or will he propose a top-down policy? Parallel movement, I think, is the way to go. He said he would be fine with either a one-state or two-state solution, as long as the parties were as well. "Furthermore, it undermines and reverses decades of longstanding, bipartisan US foreign policy". He needs to firmly reject Israel's settlement expansions in the West Bank. He is expert commentator on Swedish TV/radio/press on Israel-Palestine and also writes a blog for Huffington Post and contributes regularly to Haaretz, Politico EU and EU Observer. That is what keeps afloat the remaining shreds of Fatah's political street credibility.

Greenblatt and David Friedman, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, had already pitched the idea privately to Coates.

The US delegation also includes Jason Greenblatt, envoy for international negotiations, and Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser. This cold-blooded deadly attack, followed by the reality that the terrorist family will be duly rewarded by the PA, led to the introduction of this groundbreaking measure to penalize the PA for inciting terrorism. He has also published peer-reviewed articles in journals such as Journal of Common Market Studies, Mediterranean Politics, Journal of Conflict Transformation and Security and New Middle Eastern Studies.
