Kushner holding peace talks in Middle East

Steve Bannon

The comments came as an American delegation headed by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner arrived in Tel Aviv last night to resume negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government and the Palestinian Authority.

Kushner later traveled to Ramallah where he met with Palestinain President Mahmound Abbas.

If Netanyahu wanted to make concessions to the Palestinians as part of a peace process, he would need the support of center and left parties in the Israeli parliament.

The president is very committed to achieving a solution here that will be able to bring prosperity and peace to all people in this area. Ahead of the meeting with Abbas, dozens of Palestinians protested in Ramallah against alleged US bias in favor of Israel.

First of all, they're demanding the Trump administration publicly commit to a Palestinian state, which previous USA administrations have done.

The declaration by America's Middle East peace envoy Jared Kushner was bold, heralding a fresh diplomatic foray into the quagmire of Israeli-Palestinian relations.

"I do not think the American envoys are coming carrying anything - nothing at all", he told reporters.

In a statement, the prime minister said he and the visiting United States delegation "discussed ways to promote peace and prosperity in the region". Extremists on both sides have been trying to discredit the two-state vision since it was internationally adopted. These issues also include a Palestinian state built on pre-1967 borders with a capital in Jerusalem, and a solution for the "Palestinian right of return".

Painting a pessimistic picture, Mahmoud Al Aloul, the second-ranking official in Abbas' Fateh movement, accused U.S. negotiators of focusing in their talks with the president on "Israeli lies" about Palestinian incitement to violence and ignoring what he described as fundamental statehood issues.

Separately on Tuesday, Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian chief negotiator and secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), sat down with Burt in the West Bank city of Ariha (Jericho).

A couple dozen Palestinians protested the visit on Thursday in Ramallah, burning the Israeli flag and pictures of Trump.

But at the same time, Majdalani said they could also unilaterally declare Palestinian statehood.

But since taking office, Trump decided not to move the embassy and has urged Israel to restrain settlement construction.

Netanyahu, facing a graft investigation, is "fighting for his political life" and relying heavily on support from his right-wing base, which strongly opposes any concessions to the Palestinians, said Shapiro, now a fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies think-tank in Tel Aviv.

"Trump's finding out he's no different from other presidents", Rynhold said.
