Donald Trump Palestinians need president's two-state pledge before peace

Residents of the village had been fighting a legal battle against their eviction for 13 years

Ahead of the visit, sources close to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) said the Palestinian leader would give the Trump administration 45 days to declare a commitment to the two-state solution, or risk a Palestinian push on the global stage to declare Palestinian statehood.

Palestinian officials say they want the resolution of the conflict with Tel Aviv based on the two-state solution along the pre-1967 boundaries.

"We are not going to state what the outcome has to be - it has to be workable to both sides", Nauert said.

Kushner and Greenblatt traveled to the Middle East previously this summer to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

In recent weeks Palestinian officials have criticized the administration's unwillingness to publicly back the creation of a Palestinian state or endorse the Palestinians' territorial demands in the West Bank.

Trump's domestic troubles, including his response to demonstrations by white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, have weakened his ability to demand compromise from Israelis and Palestinians, said Jonathan Rynhold, a researcher at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University near Tel Aviv. Parallel movement, I think, is the way to go. Attacking those parties makes them less likely to support Netanyahu and leaves the Israeli Prime Minister with little flexibility for negotiations.

Hernandez worked the World Series in 2002 and 2005 but hasn't done it not since. Kinsler said Friday that he'd be fined, without disclosing the amount.

Kushner told Netanyahu that Trump is "very committed" to help broker a peace deal and thanked the prime minister for working with the White House toward that goal. Extremists on both sides have been trying to discredit the two-state vision since it was internationally adopted. "And I think, really, that's the best view as to not really bias one side over the other, to make sure that they can work through it".

"Abbas is coming to the end of his reign". "Since the Trump administration came to power, we've seen the advancement of thousands of housing units through plans and tenders".

The president went to Saudi Arabia and Israel during his first post-inauguration trip overseas and has expressed a personal commitment to reaching a deal that has eluded his Republican and Democratic predecessors.

Three months later, Netanyahu and Abbas face different political realities, and Trump's ability to jump-start negotiations may be dwindling.

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner met with the Saudi crown prince and Qatar's emir, kicking off a regional trip to explore the possibility of re-energizing Israel-Palestinian peace efforts that stalled more than three years ago.

-Israeli regional goals hold little indication that the Trump administration is prepared to support the call from a majority of Palestinians that their state, peace and security be officially recognized by the US government. And if Trump pressures both leaders to come to the negotiating table, they may find it hard to refuse.
