    “The president agrees with me that the best way, perhaps the only way to secure Israel’s future as a democratic Jewish state, and to give the Palestinians the state to which they are entitled, is the solution said to two states, “he said. Before the American senators, however, he recognized that such a solution was not “realistic” in the “short term”, calling for the immediate future Israelis and Palestinians to “avoid unilateral measures which make it even more complex”. Outgoing US President Donald Trump presented his Middle East peace plan a year ago, which grants the Palestinians only a demilitarized state reduced to its bare minimum, with a capital on the outskirts of Jerusalem and private Israeli settlements which would be annexed by the Hebrew state. The Palestinian Authority rejected the proposal outright, denying the Trump administration mediator status. She had already severed all contact with the United States...

According to the statement, UN experts are concerned about « the deterioration of the health situation in Gaza, which suffers from a 13-year blockade, severe water and electricity shortages, and endemic poverty and...
    CNN contributor Peter Beinart offered a staunch defense of Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., after she was accused of sharing anti-Israel rhetoric on Twitter.  On Sunday, Tlaib commemorated the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in part by retweeting an illustration posted by Palestinian-American activist Rasha Mubarak.  "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free," Mubarak captioned the tweet.  That pro-Palestinian saying has long been interpreted and criticized as a call for the elimination of the Jewish state. RASHIDA TLAIB ACCUSED OF ANTI-SEMITISM FOR REACTION TO BIDEN'S JEWISH SEC OF STATE NOMINEE On Monday, the pro-Israel group Democratic Majority for Israel shared a screenshot of Tlaib's retweet and condemned the congresswoman.  "@RashidaTlaib is not just opposed to Israeli control of the West Bank — this slogan means she sees the entire State of Israel as illegitimate and wants it eliminated. That’s an immoral and reprehensible position," the Democratic group tweeted.  Beinart, who...
    Saudi Arabia announced today that flights to and from the United Arab Emirates 'from all countries' will now be able to use its airspace - a statement apparently allowing flyovers by Israel following a deal to normalize UAE-Israel relations. The vaguely worded statement avoided naming Israel directly.  However, the announcement came just days after the kingdom allowed the first direct Israeli commercial passenger flight to use its airspace to reach the UAE.  Any direct flight between the two nations would need to use Saudi airspace to be commercially viable. The statement makes no mention of the kingdom's rival, Iran, nor Qatar, which Saudi Arabia is currently boycotting. Flights between those countries to the UAE would, in theory, not need to use the kingdom's airspace. The Israeli flag carrier El Al's airliner carrying Israeli and U.S. delegates is seen after landing at Abu Dhabi International Airport, in Abu Dhabi, United...
    Israel is on course to establish diplomatic relations with “several Arab countries,” according to the top envoy for the United Arab Emirates. “I think the UAE is not the only country here,” UAE foreign minister Anwar Gargash told the Atlantic Council Thursday while discussing his country’s recent agreement with Israel. “There are several Arab countries that are on this scale in different stages.” That prediction aligns with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s stated hope that the deal unveiled last week “will be the first in a series of agreements” between the Jewish state and Arab neighbors. Israel and the Gulf countries have improved informal relations in recent years in light of their common perception of Iranian threats, but the Arab nations traditionally have identified ties with Israel as the reward for a “comprehensive peace agreement” between the Jewish state and the Palestinians. “Saudi Arabia remains committed to...
    These Palestinians aren’t happy with Trump’s Israel deal, which required Israel to make no territorial concessions. Gaza, Aug. 16, 2020. Mahmoud Issa/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images) The heralded recent agreement to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates may not be the grand achievement it was made out to be. The White House-brokered deal, which was announced with much fanfare on Aug. 13, is undoubtedly a diplomatic win for U.S. President Donald Trump and for Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who declared its signing a “historic day.” But the United Arab Emirates and Israel have never been at war, so the new agreement between them is not really a peace treaty, as some White House officials and press accounts suggested. It is an agreement to begin officially upgrading relations that have been quietly improving for some time, a process that will probably unfold slowly and tentatively. Nor...
    Rival Palestinian groups Al Fatah and Hamas announced today that they will fight together against Israel’s controversial plan to annex much of the occupied West Bank, endorsed by its ally the United States and rejected by much of the international community. The declaration comes one day after the deadline set by Israel, according to the pact made by the new coalition government, to start the controversial plan, which aims to annex all illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank, including the strategic Jordan Valley, equivalent to a third of the occupied territory, Al Jazeera reported Although the start of the execution of the plan led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which is in line with a proposal by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, was not announced yesterday. Today we want to speak with one voice. ” Jibril Rajub, Al Fatah However, in an unusual joint...
    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu An Israeli minister confirmed that the implementation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to annex parts of the occupied territories to the Palestinians in the West Bank will not start today, as planned, amid growing international rejection of the initiative. In statements to Military Radio, Cabinet Minister Ofir Akunis said that the sending of the annexation bill to Parliament, the first step in the process, will not be done today, as agreed between the parties of the government coalition that Netanyahu heads. Akunis said the annexation of the West Bank, which Israel has occupied since 1967, “will certainly take place in July,” but after more talks with the United States government and US President Donald Trump making a statement on the matter. “Coordination with the US government is not something that should be dismissed,” Akunis said, quoted by the Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post. The...
    Breaking News — If it is finally carried out, it would be a far-reaching and extremely controversial measure.

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Palestinians said Tuesday they proposed a demilitarized Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem with one-to-one land exchanges with Israel as a counteroffer to President Donald Trump’s Mideast plan. Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh declined to provide further details about the 4 1/2-page proposal but said the Palestinian position on major issues is well-known. He said the plan was submitted in recent days to the Quartet of Mideast mediators — the U.S., the U.N., the European Union and Russia. The Trump administration has chastised the Palestinians for rejecting its plan, which sides with Israel on all the most contentious issues in the decades-old conflict. Israel and the U.S. have long accused the Palestinians of failing to provide their own proposal. The Palestinians say their demands are rooted in international law and U.N. resolutions. The two sides have not held substantive peace negotiations...
