Trump Gave Putin a Message to Pass Along to the Palestinians

By doing so, Trump inevitably denied the Palestinian people's rights over the city and endorsed all human rights violations occurring against Palestinians at the hands of a state that continues to violate worldwide law.

The trend has always been that no matter how pro-Israel American presidential candidates sound during the election campaign, after entering the White House they always end up blaming Israel for the lack of peace. And he is not necessarily sure that Israel is looking to make peace.

Trump told Putin that "now is the time to work toward an enduring peace agreement", according to a White House statement.

"Right now, I would say the Palestinians are not looking to make peace".

However, if we continue to insist on referring to Israeli territorial concessions to the anti-Semitic PA as "peace", Israel has repeatedly proven it is willing to go out on a limb, to put in mildly, to make such accommodations.

"We keep looking for alternatives and President Abbas is conducting consultations with the global community and will address the UN Security Council on the February 20 to emphasize the need for an worldwide mechanism for a serious and fruitful peace process", said Ishtayeh. The UN voted to condemn Trump administration's decision overwhelmingly. He also said that Israel should be careful about constructing settlements that might hinder future peace deals.

They are blamed for a series of bomb, gun and suicide attacks that have killed hundreds in Egypt. Four militants and 30 suspects were arrested, it adds.

President Trump made the controversial announcement on December 6 past year, instructing the State Department to relocate the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

"We keep hearing in recent months that the United States is about to publish some "major deal" that ... will satisfy everyone", he said.

Putin was reported to have made the comments at the start of a meeting in Moscow with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

"In December, he recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, without securing concessions from Israel in return", Chris Meserole, a Middle East expert at the Brookings Institution, told Newsweek.

Since Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Palestinians have declared that the U.S. is disqualified from mediating the peace process and demanded an worldwide multilateral approach to sponsor the peace talks with Israel.

The Omani minister will also visit occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank cities of Bethlehem, Hebron and Nablus during his three-day program, he said.
