Trump tells Israeli newspaper Palestinians 'aren't willing to make peace'

In an interview published yesterday in the "Israel Hayom" daily, Mr Trump was quoted as saying the Palestinians "are not looking to make peace".

The president criticized Palestinians for inciting violence between the two sides, saying he wasn't sure if they are looking to make peace at all. The 92-page document discusses the USA strategy for Israeli-Palestinian peace, which, according to the document, will be announced within two to three months. "They are not looking to make peace", Trump said in the interview with the right-wing paper.

After that, according to Shaath, a new global conference modeled on the Madrid Conference of 1991 could be convened, prompting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with smaller memberships, as it happened during the negotiations between six world powers and Iran on the latter's nuclear program.

The Israeli government refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity and continues to build settlements in occupied areas, in spite of objections from the UN.

"The settlements", he told Israel Hayom editor-in-chief Boaz Bismuth, "are something that very much complicate and always have complicated making peace, so I think Israel has to be very careful with the settlements".

Trump threatened to cut additional aid to Palestinians last month after the USA announced it was withholding $65 million in aid to the United Nations agency that serves Palestinian refugees.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is visiting Russian Federation on Monday in a bid to secure President Vladimir Putin's support following Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "Not only is Jerusalem obviously and objectively the capital of the state of Israel since its creation, but it is the ancient capital of the Jewish people", Kenney said alongside O'Toole on a panel called Refreshing Foreign Policy at the annual Manning Centre's Networking Conference. I was the first US Ambassador to celebrate an [event] for Yom Yerushalayim.

President Abbas received Modi who said that India hopes for Palestine to soon become a sovereign and independent country in a peaceful environment. Modi then toured the Arafat museum, which is also part of the compound, before holding talks with Abbas.

According to the official, the United States has over the past 11 years opposed the idea of an worldwide conference, insisting on direct negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel as the preferred method to ending the conflict.

Palestinians, whose reaction was quite predictable, continue to reject the U.S. role in the peace process They stress that their official position remains unchanged and that they envisage the establishment of an independent state within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as their capital. It was a very important pledge that I made and I fulfilled my pledge'.

He also told an Israeli newspaper that he did not believe the Palestinians, and possibly Israel as well, were ready to make peace.

One of the detainees is 17-year-old Mustafa al-Badn from the town of Tuqu' in the city of Bethlehem; he said Israeli forces raided his family home at 1:30 A.M., detained him and took him to Etzion prison.
