Trump Needs to Involve the Arabs in the Israeli-Palestinian Peace

Abbas spoke as the Trump administration's two key Mideast negotiators who are working on a USA peace proposal - the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner and special representative Jason Greenblatt - sat in the Security Council chamber listening. "The choice is yours".

Abbas presented the Palestinians "peace plan" to the council. Middle East Eye reported that the United States contributed over 80% of UNRWA's income in 2017 - income that was significantly slashed in January 2018 when the Trump White House froze $65 million of planned donations.

The Palestinian leader immediately left the council chamber following his address, leading Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon to complain that Abbas was "running away" from dialogue.

"We met with the President of the United States, Mr. Donald Trump, four times in 2017, and we have expressed our absolute readiness to reach a historic peace agreement", Abbas said. We are ready to begin negotiations. Israel considers the entire city, including the eastern sector, to be its undivided capital.

"A new phase has begun in the struggle to preserve the overall goal of our Palestinian people, the Arab nation and the world as a whole, and this is the issue of Al-Quds, with its holy sites to Islam and Christianity, its heritage and history, which some are trying to counterfeit by contradicting all global laws which have always established that Al-Quds is Palestinian and Arab", Abu Rudeina said. Now the United States negotiators are calling him out for his refusal to accept Israel as a nation state of the Jewish people.

Meanwhile, Amnesty also slammed "Israel's air, land and sea blockade of the Gaza Strip", which it says is "collectively punishing Gaza's entire population of approximately 2 million inhabitants". Abbas unmasked himself as a real obstacle to negotiations.

Veteran Israeli diplomat Yoram Ettinger told WIN, "In order to assess the future of talks with Abbas one need only look at his track record of inciting the Palestinian youth".

"US policy has changed the way it looks at Judea and Samaria". They understand the negative impact on Israel if there was a Palestinian State on the mountain ridges of Judea and Samaria.

While the API, when proposed by Saudi Arabia in 2002, originally offered peace between Israel and the Arab world after a complete Israeli withdrawal to boundaries existing prior to the 1967 Six Day War, the proposal has since been modified by the Arab states to make it more palatable to Israel.
