US considering fresh UNRWA cutbacks to push Palestinians into talks

Briefing of KUNA main news for Sunday until 00:00 GMT

Steinmeier also paid a visit to the 300 German soldiers stationed at al-Azraq military base in eastern Jordan. An Israeli man was killed in a Palestinian shooting attack earlier this month. In Abbas' way of thinking, he met with a representative of the State Department, but not with an envoy of the White House.

The US-based lecturer was not a consular staff member. "Palestinians deserve nothing less", the paper concluded.

The FPA said the journalist was asked to remove her bra during a search and, when she refused, was denied entry.

According to the journalist, "for anyone who believes in peace in the Holy Land, removing the US or weakening its role in negotiations should be a goal". He came across as more interested in protecting his status rather than ending decades of strife, which was supposed to be his mission.

Zomlot refuted claims by Netanyahu that Israel could accrue support without coming to a deal with the Palestinians, repeatedly saying such claims were "delusional". More precisely, the execution took place outside a school run by UNRWA.

He also told RT that Hezbollah had become stronger after the experience it gained in Syria.

AlterNet senior writer Max Blumenthal called Pence's speech "deeply offensive" to Palestinians. Many Israeli speakers at the INSS conference argued that Israel's survival as a Jewish democratic state requires a two-state solution. "The UAE's position is to establish peace principles with the aim of guaranteeing Arab and Palestinian rights and lasting stability in the region".

Prominent actors and artists are rallying to support UNRWA, as US President Donald Trump issues new threats to cut funding to the UN agency that works to meet the basic humanitarian needs of five million Palestinian refugees. "Now they are threatening us with money, with aid", he said. You come away with a conviction that the "ultimate deal", as Trump calls his still-fuzzy vision of a peace agreement, isn't going to happen. At the same time, the BJP's constituency, which had been upset with India's UN vote, has been placated. Trump and Pence are vilified on a daily basis by Palestinian leaders and media outlets. Like so much else in this intractable conflict, it has become permanent.

Speaking after a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum, Trump said all he wanted to see between the two countries is peace.

They reminded the U.S. leaders that, in 1984, the Reagan administration justified its decision to provide humanitarian aid to famine-struck Ethiopia by declaring that "a hungry child knows no politics". In the world of the Palestinians, any world leader who does not hate Israel or dares to challenge the Palestinian narrative is defined as the enemy.
