DONALD TRUMP'S son-in-law and senior adviser says the USA will present its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan soon, with or without input from Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas. On Sunday, Erekat doubled down on his criticism, dismissing the American negotiators as biased and predicting their peace plan would fail.
The group discussed "the continued commitment of the Trump administration and Israel to advance peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians" and the "means by which the humanitarian situation in Gaza can be alleviated", the White House said in a statement Friday.
It has always been an insurmountable sticking point, in the Palestinian view, that Jewish settlements built by Israel in the West Bank and East Jerusalem bisect what would become an independent Palestinian state.
After a Tuesday morning visit to Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Museum, Prince William will meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin in successive meetings.
Prince William has kicked off a politically delicate five-day tour of Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories, planning to meet with young people, refugees and political leaders in a tumultuous region once controlled by Britain. The Palestinian leader, Kushner said, "says that he is committed to peace, and I don't have any reason to disbelieve him".
'Stressed' Messi will be Argentina's main man, Zabaleta assures
If Iceland wins, then Sampaoli's side can still qualify if it beats Nigeria by two more goals than Iceland wins its game. As a player myself, I know that if you go into a game and you don't really enjoy it then it is very hard to play well.
A Palestinian man shot by Israeli forces two days ago during clashes on the Gaza border died of his wounds early today, the health ministry in the Hamas-ruled territory said.
The duke will visit Ramallah in the West Bank, where he will focus on issues facing refugee communities, as well as meeting Abbas.
It's a high-profile, politically delicate foreign trip for William, second in line to the British throne, and comes at a time of widening rifts between Israelis and Palestinians.
Mr. Abbas has refused to see Mr. Trump's team since USA recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved its Embassy there. Israel considers the city, home to holy sites sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims and the emotional epicenter of the conflict, as an inseparable part of its capital. The annexation is not internationally recognized.
But Palestinians insist that the eastern part of Jerusalem will one day be the capital of their future state, a position supported by the global community.
Online sellers consider how to comply with sales tax ruling
The 5-4 ruling is a win for states who say are missing out on billions of dollars a year from online sales tax. A sales tax is supposed to be a broad tax on consumption: You buy and use things, you pay tax.
Kushner said he is "ready to work with [Palestinian Authority] President Abbas, if he wishes".
He added that the Arab leaders "want to see a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital and an agreement that enables the Palestinians to live in peace".
The Palestinian Authority said Saturday that United States plans to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict are "doomed to fail".
It said, in an official statement, that the Israeli army killed 131, and 14,811 were wounded, including 7,975 treated in hospitals and 54 had their either upper or lower limps amputated. Media and witnesses in Gaza said the injured were members of Hamas forces.
Kushner's direct appeal to the Palestinian people is laughable, given that last month, he blamed Palestinians killed in Gaza for their own deaths. "Hamas leads the arson and explosive kites phenomenon; it orchestrates the launches and will bear the consequences for its actions".
Russian energy minister says OPEC oil supply deal is 'reasonable' - Oil
Whereas this clearly bore fruit internally, it also resulted in markets expecting a stronger outcome of the meeting. The most recent price rally followed an Opec decision to restrict supply in an effort to drain global inventories.
