Netanyahu vows he will never evacuate another settlement-At event celebrating 50 years of settlements in the northern West Bank, thousands cheer PM as he speaks of the area’s strategic importance-By Jacob Magid August 28, 2017, 11:16 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
BARKAN, West Bank — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged on Monday that his government will never evacuate another settlement, issuing the promise days after he met with a US delegation to discuss restarting the peace process with the Palestinians.At an event celebrating 50 years of Israeli settlements in Samaria — the biblical name for the northern West Bank — Netanyahu told a crowd of thousands, “We are here to stay forever. There will be no more uprooting of settlements in the land of Israel.”“This is the inheritance of our ancestors,” he said. “This is our land.’He also stressed the dangers Israel would face if it withdrew from the West Bank, a key demand of the Palestinians in any future peace deal.“Samaria is a strategic asset for the State of Israel,” the prime minister said. “It is the key to our future. Because from these high hills, the heights of Mount Hatzor, we can see the entire country, from one side to the other.”He said that Israel had withdrawn from settlements in the past but received nothing in return.“We’ve uprooted settlements. What did we get? We received missiles. It will not happen again,” the prime minister said, referring to Israel’s 2005 withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. “To those who want to uproot what we’ve planted, [I say] we will deepen our roots.”“Imagine that on these hills were the forces of radical Islam,” Netanyahu said that he tells world leaders. “It would endanger us, it would endanger you, and it would endanger the entire Middle East.”The prime minister also gave his recollections of the first time he came to Samaria, as a soldier, and said that he felt he was walking in the footsteps of the patriarchs, walking the hills with a Bible in his hand.“I remember the excitement that gripped me when I came to Shiloh, the place where the [biblical] kingdom of Israel stood,” he said.Netanyahu has spoken at three events in the West Bank in the last two months. Earlier in August, he addressed a ceremony marking the establishment of a new neighborhood in Beitar Illit. And in June, he spoke at ceremony inaugurating a new medical school at Ariel University, which was funded by casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.Netanyahu’s comments came days after the visit of a delegation from US President Donald Trump, who is looking to get the Israelis and the Palestinians back to the negotiating table.A senior Palestinian official said Monday that the Americans last week asked for a three-to-four-month “grace period” in order to prepare and present a peace plan.Nabil Shaath, speaking to the official Voice of Palestine radio, said the Palestinians had reiterated their demands that Israel end settlement construction and withdraw from the West Bank, which Israel captured in the 1967 Six Day War.Shaath, a former Palestinian negotiator, said that the Palestinians told the American delegation its demands are “the end of the occupation, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, as well as the resolution of all permanent status issues, including the right return for [Palestinian] refugees.”Netanyahu was enthusiastically welcomed by settler leader Yossi Dagan, and the large, exclusively religious, crowd greeted the prime minister’s words with loud cheers.Speaking to The Times of Israel after the event, Dagan said that while the event was “nice and festive, this was also a political event. We had the prime minister here and a majority of government ministers. This sends a clear message on the importance of Samaria.”But not everyone felt the same way about the prime minister, who was responsible for the evacuation of the illegal Amona outpost in February.While the international community regards all Israeli construction over the Green Line as illegitimate, Israel officially differentiates between government-approved settlements and wildcat outposts built on private land, which are sometimes evacuated and demolished in compliance with court orders.Israel demolished the Amona outpost in February after a 10-year legal battle during which the High Court determined it had been built on private land.Asked what he thought of the warm reception, long-time settler leader Benny Katzover said, “I’m here to support Yossi Dagan.”A statement from the residents of the Netiv Ha’avot outpost, which is slated to be demolished in March, struck a similar tone. “The prime minister thinks that people who are expelled from their homes… were not uprooted,” they said, referring to the Amona evacuees. “From our point of view, the unnecessary destruction of homes is the same as uprooting, and we will not make it easier on this government.”Fifteen homes are slated to be demolished in the Netiv Ha’avot neighborhood in the settlement of Elazar after the High Court of Justice ruled that they had been constructed on private Palestinian land.
Jewish MKs make first Temple Mount visit since 2015-Yehudah Glick and Shuli Moalem-Refaeli enter flashpoint site as police test the waters 2 years after lawmakers were banned-By Times of Israel staff August 29, 2017, 1:32 pm
Two Jewish Knesset members visited the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Tuesday for the first time since October 2015, when the government barred MKs from going there as part of an attempt to reduce tensions amid a wave of terror attacks against Israelis that was linked to the flashpoint site.Likud’s Yehudah Glick and Shuli Moalem-Refaeli, of the Jewish Home party, visited the compound, which was recently the focus of a major crisis between Israeli authorities and local Muslims over contentious security measures taken at the entrances to the compound. Metal detectors and cameras were installed following a deadly attack in which three Arab Israelis emerged from the site and shot dead two Israeli police officers using weapons that had been smuggled onto the Temple Mount. The upgraded security measures were all ultimately removed.Following discussions with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, the prime minister decided in early July that the ban on MKs going to the Temple Mount would be lifted for a period of seven days to assess any fallout from the move — though on Tuesday, the trial period seemed to have been reduced to a single day.The site, Judaism’s most holy as the site of the biblical Temples, remains otherwise off-limits to government ministers. The government and police have said they will assess allowing lawmakers to visit the site on a regular basis in the future.MK + Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick tours Al Aqsa compound after ban on lawmakers visiting he fought against lifted. (Via Rami Khateeb) pic.twitter.com/CELvsvnHE8— Kaamil Ahmed (@KaamilAhmed) August 29, 2017-Glick and Moalem-Refaeli walked around the site with a small group of people, accompanied by Israeli security officials. The visit took place without incident.Several members of the left-wing group Peace Now protested outside the entrance to the Temple Mount, accusing the lawmakers of provocation.Glick rejected the charges, saying that Jews who visit the Temple Mount are not the ones responsible for terror attacks.“I have a very peculiar worldview,” he said dryly, “according to which the person who is responsible for a terror attack is the one who carried it out. And the one who incites to murder is guilty. I am convinced that whoever visits the Temple Mount adds peace to the world, and whoever promotes incitement and hatred is guilty.”Under a decades-old agreement enforced by Israel, only Muslims are allowed to pray inside the compound, which is known to Arabs as Haram al-Sharif and which contains the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.As she walked on the Temple Mount, Moalem-Refaeli told those with her that they should dedicate their actions to the memory of Haiel Sitawe, 30, and Kamil Shnaan, 22, the two Israeli police officers killed on July 14 by three Arab Israeli gunmen while guarding the site.Glick’s wife, Yaffa, suffered a stroke on June 26 and remains in a coma. He told reporters that he had her in mind during the visit and that despite the ban, he had prayed.“The Temple Mount is the source of my life,” he said. “I visited with the prayer that I should be worthy. I prayed for myself, for my family, for my children and for my wife, along with a prayer for peace in the world.”Glick also said he prayed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be cleared in the multiple police investigations into him, and for an end to war around the globe.“I prayed that God would strengthen our prime minister and give him the strength to do his job, and that he would come out innocent and will continue to succeed in uniting the entire nation. I asked for peace in Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Yemen — that no nation should raise a sword against another.”In 2014, a Palestinian terrorist attempted to assassinate Glick because of his Temple Mount activism. The shooter told Glick, right before pulling the trigger, that he was “an enemy of al-Aqsa.”Police allowed Jewish lawmakers to visit the site in the morning, though Glick and Moalem-Refaeli were the only two to do so. Arab lawmakers were permitted to visit in the afternoon, though they denounced the scheme and said didn’t need the prime minister’s permission to enter the site.MK Ahmad Tibi, of the Joint (Arab) List, decried the visits of the Jewish MKs, calling them a “provocation.”“MKs from the Joint List will not come today to the Al-Aqsa Mosque with the provocation and conditions of Netanyahu and the Israel Police,” he said. “Arab MKs will come whenever they want and not when Netanyahu wants. This is how it was in the past and this is how it will be in the future.”He added that the right-wing Jewish lawmakers were seeking to change the status quo on the site.“The Arab MKs come to their home, to their mosque,” he said. “But the right-wing extremist MKs storm the mosque with the protection of the Israeli government and police, and they are the same ones who want to change the status quo to allow them to pray in the courtyard of the mosque.“The world can see who is inciting,” Tibi added, “who sneaks in like a thief in the night, and who acts properly and responsibly as the owner of the site of the mosque.”At a press conference after the Jewish lawmakers visited the site, Tibi compared Glick’s message of peace to an engineer saying he is doing a “good deed” as he enters an Arab village to bulldoze homes.Glick “stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque with a message of peace,” said Tibi. “He calls for turning the site into what he calls the ‘third Temple,’ in a message of peace. Any more ‘peace’ like this and we’ll be lost.”
Hamas official denies his group has upped demands in prisoner-swap talks-Israeli security establishment split over whether restricting privileges of inmates from Gaza could spark a new round of violence-By Avi Issacharoff August 29, 2017, 1:24 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
A senior Hamas official has denied a report that the terror group is demanding the release of thousands of prisoners held by Israel as a prerequisite for talks on a wider swap that would secure the return of three Israeli civilians and the remains of two IDF soldiers believed held in the Gaza Strip.On Sunday Channel 2 news cited Israeli security sources saying that Hamas had raised new demands in the indirect talks, including that Israel release thousands of Palestinians who were arrested in the lead-up to the summer 2014 war in the Strip.Speaking to The Times of Israel on Monday, a day after Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman vowed that Jerusalem would not release any Palestinian prisoners in a deal with Hamas, the Hamas official blamed Israel for a lack of progress in reaching talks.The Hamas official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the report, and others like it, were an attempt by the Israeli government to pin blame on Hamas.Hamas has been holding the bodies of IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul since the two were killed in the Gaza Strip during the 2014 war. The terror group is also believed to be holding three Israeli civilians — Avraham Abera Mengistu, Hisham al-Sayed and Juma Ibrahim Abu Ghanima — who were all said to have entered the Gaza Strip of their own accord.Israeli officials confirmed to The Times of Israel that Hamas’s position remained unchanged, as described by the Hamas source — in contrast to the Channel 2 report.According to the Hamas source, the group’s position remains the same as it has been since the end of the war: Before beginning any negotiations, Israel must release the prisoners who were rearrested in the weeks before the 2014 conflict after being set free in the swap for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit deal. The official said that there were only 58 such Hamas prisoners being held in Israel.“Israel put them back into prison and some of them were even returned to their life sentences. We are demanding that [Israel] honor the Shalit agreement of 2011 that was signed in Cairo,” he said, referring to the deal that saw more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners released in exchange for Shalit, who was kidnapped by Hamas from Israeli territory and held hostage in Gaza for five years.According to the Channel 2 report that was denied by the official, Hamas is demanding that Israel release not only the prisoners released under the Shalit deal and rearrested in the weeks before the war, but rather all of the thousands of Palestinians scooped up at the time. They were apprehended during the search for three Israeli teenagers kidnapped in the West Bank — before it emerged that the three had been killed by their attackers almost immediately after their abduction.The source acknowledged that Israel has agreed to release the 58 rearrested prisoners, but only as part of a larger agreement, while Hamas is demanding their release as a condition to start talks.“Only after their release will we enter into real negotiations,” the Hamas official declared. “There were all sorts of proposals that were passed to us through various entities, but they are not acceptable without the early release of those prisoners from the Shalit deal.”On Monday, Liberman said that the options available at the moment to Israel to liberate its three citizens in Gaza and recover the remains of the two soldiers are “to conquer Gaza or capitulate” to Hamas’s demands. A day earlier Liberman caused a media storm by declaring that Israel must not repeat the “mistake” of releasing Palestinian prisoners in exchange for captives held by Hamas.The families of Goldin and Shaul, the two soldiers, while critical of the government’s failure to secure the return of the soldiers’ remains, aren’t demanding the release of prisoners or compromises to Hamas but rather a firmer hand in dealing with Hamas prisoners and the Gaza Strip.Among their demands are calls for the cancellation of visits from Gaza by families members of Hamas prisoners held in Israel. Some security establishment sources told The Times of Israel that the measure could lead to an escalation in violence with Gaza, while others have advocated the move, saying there only a few dozen Gazan Hamas prisoners in Israel, and that a worsening of their conditions can’t spark unrest.Hamas’s leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, is known to be sensitive to prisoner issues, as he spent 22 years in an Israeli prison. Despite having been released under the Shalit deal, he was opposed to it, arguing that the swap of 1,027 Palestinians for one Israeli constituted a Palestinian compromise.Hamas, an Islamist terror group, wrestled control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in a bloody coup in 2007. Years of reconciliation efforts have so far yielded little progress.Last week Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s appointed representative overseeing efforts to retrieve the Hamas-held captive Israelis, Lior Lotan, resigned after three years in the position.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
Trump: ‘All options on the table’ after North Korea missile launch-As Pyongyang fires ballistic missile over Japan, US president warns against ‘threatening and destabilizing actions’-By DARLENE SUPERVILLE August 29, 2017, 2:57 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
WASHINGTON (AP) — US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that “all options are on the table” in terms of a US response to North Korea’s launch of a missile over Japan.In a terse, written statement Tuesday, Trump said that with the missile launch North Korea has “signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior.”“Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world,” Trump said. “All options are on the table.”In a first, North Korea on Tuesday fired a mid-range ballistic missile designed to carry a nuclear payload that flew over US ally Japan and splashed into the northern Pacific Ocean, officials said. The aggressive launch over the territory of a close US ally sent a clear message of defiance as Washington and South Korea conduct war games nearby.Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan conferred by telephone over the latest missile test and how to respond.The White House said Tuesday that the leaders agreed that North Korea poses “a grave and growing direct threat” to the United States, Japan, South Korea and countries around the world.“President Trump and Prime Minister Abe committed to increasing pressure on North Korea, and doing their utmost to convince the international community to do the same,” the White House said.Abe said in a statement that “Japan’s and the US positions are totally at one.”The prime minister added that both nations were in “total agreement” that an emergency meeting was needed at the UN Security Council to step up pressure on North Korea after what he called an unprecedented threat. He also said Trump expressed his “strong commitment” to defending Japan.North Korea’s latest test came weeks after the UN Security Council voted unanimously to impose tough new sanctions against the government in Pyongyang.It also followed a series of missile launches late Friday, and came after a period in which the US and North Korea had traded heated rhetoric over Pyongyang’s continued missile tests, which violate UN Security Council resolutions prohibiting them.Trump last week praised North Korea’s decision to back down from its earlier threats to attack the US territory of Guan.“But, Kim Jong Un, I respect the fact that I believe he is starting to respect us,” Trump said at a campaign rally last week in Phoenix. “I respect that fact very much. Respect that fact. And maybe, probably not, but maybe something positive can come about.”Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had also complimented North Korea for its restraint in recent weeks.
Hamas leader in Gaza: Ties with Iran now ‘fantastic’; we’re preparing battle for Palestine-Hailing fully restored relations with Tehran, Yahya Sinwar says his group doesn’t want war yet but is building up military power for ‘the liberation of Palestine’By Times of Israel staff and Agencies August 28, 2017, 7:01 pm
The new Gaza leader of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas said Monday it has restored relations with Iran and is gearing up for future hostilities with Israel.Yahya Sinwar told reporters that Iran is now “the largest backer financially and militarily” of Hamas’s armed wing. It was his first meeting with journalists since taking up his post in February.Sinwar said that with Iran’s help, Hamas is accumulating military power in preparation for a battle for “the liberation of Palestine.”Hamas is “developing our military strength in order to liberate Palestine,” Sinwar said, but he also stressed that it does not seek war for now “and takes every effort to avoid a war… At the same time we are not afraid of a war and are ready for it.”“The Iranian military support to Hamas and al-Qassam is strategic,” he added, saying the relationship had “become fantastic and returned to its former era.”“Every day we build missiles and continue military training,” he added, saying that thousands of people are working “day and night” to prepare for the next conflict.Iran was once Hamas’s largest backer, but relations cooled after Hamas refused to back Iran’s close ally Syrian President Bashar Assad in his country’s civil war.Earlier this month, a high-level Hamas delegation traveled to Iran to attend the inauguration of President Hassan Rouhani, and to “turn a new page in bilateral relations” between the two sides.It was the first visit to Iran by Hamas officials since the group elected new leadership earlier in 2017. The rapprochement between Hamas and Iran is reportedly being facilitated by the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, which is supported by Tehran.The Pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat, which is Saudi-influenced, reported at the time that Hamas officials representing the terror group’s military wing also met with members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, a paramilitary force that answers directly to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and discussed “common issues.”According to the report, Iran was keen to restore ties with Hamas after Ismail Haniyeh was elected as head of Hamas’s political bureau and Sinwar as the group’s Gaza chief. Both are considered to be more open to reconciliation with Iran than was Khaled Mashaal, the former political leader of Hamas.The group is in sore need of funds and backing as its current top patron, Qatar, is under fire from Gulf allies for supporting it.During the Hamas delegation’s visit in Tehran earlier this month, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Palestinian issue remained a top foreign policy priority for his government, which was “ready to put aside all disagreements [with Hamas] for the sake of supporting Palestine and the Palestinian people as well as the unity of the Muslim world.”The Islamist terror group seized Gaza in a near civil war with forces loyal to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in 2007. The two factions have been at loggerheads ever since.Hamas has fought three wars with Israel since 2008, tunneling under the border and firing thousands of rockets into Israel, and is committed to destroying the Jewish state. Israel maintains a security blockade on Gaza designed to prevent the terror group from importing weapons.
Liberman: Lebanon should know we’ll use ‘great force’ in future war-In meeting with UN secretary general, defense minister details efforts by Hezbollah, Iran to threaten the Jewish state-By Judah Ari Gross August 28, 2017, 5:54 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatened that Israel would respond “with very great force” in a future conflict with the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terrorist group, during a meeting with the visiting United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Monday.The defense minister told the UN leader that Hezbollah is “stashing various weapons, including missiles and rockets, that are aimed at Israeli citizens in the homes of residents of the villages and cities along the border.”Liberman added that Iran was “working to set up factories to manufacture accurate weapons within Lebanon itself.”According to the defense minister, that situation is “insufferable for the State of Israel, and we are determined to prevent every threat to the security of Israeli citizens.”The presence of at least two Iranian missile manufacturing facilities was revealed by Israel earlier this summer. On Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Guterres that Iran was also involved in the construction of another missile base in Syria.Liberman did not explicitly threaten to attack the Iranian missile factories in Lebanon, but he said that “the Lebanese government and the citizens of southern Lebanon should know” that Israel will be forceful in future conflicts.“We don’t want to hurt uninvolved people, but neither will we remain indifferent to a situation in which [Hezbollah] shoots at our citizens. And we will act quickly, with force and with determination,” he said.The defense minister joined the full-scale push by Israel and the US to get the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to take greater action against Hezbollah.“Hezbollah is consistently violating UN resolution 1701,” Liberman said, referring to the UN Security Council resolution that ended the Second Lebanon War in 2006, under which Hezbollah was supposed to remain north of the Litani River.“UNIFIL needs to fulfill the mandate that was given to it by the UN and enforce resolution 1701,” Liberman added.During his meeting with Guterres earlier in the day, Netanyahu pressed the UN to allow UNIFIL to act more forcefully in southern Lebanon, as have Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon and America’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.Liberman spoke highly of the UN’s other peacekeeping force on Israel’s border, the UN Disengagement Observer Force.“UNDOF has the important job of stabilizing the border with Syria, and therefore we support maintaining its status, ensuring its security and returning it to full service, so that it can fulfill its mandate,” he said.The defense minister was referring to a decision to scale back UNDOF’s presence in the area, following a number of attacks on the force in 2013 and 2014.According to Liberman, UNDOF can help keep Iran from fulfilling its schemes for the region, including plans “to build an air force and naval base in Syria.”Iran, he said, is trying to bring Shiite militias into the region, to create a “land bridge” through Iraq and Syria to Lebanon through which it can smuggle advanced and accurate weapons, and to “establish a Shiite hegemony that will threaten all the countries in the region, first and foremost Israel.”In addition to his comments on the situation in Lebanon and Syria, Liberman accused Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, whom he referred to by his nickname Abu Mazen, of trying to force Israel to go to war with Hamas.“Abu Mazen is making the situation in the Gaza Strip worse in order to bring about a clash between the State of Israel and Hamas, which he will enjoy from every aspect,” Liberman said. “The people guilty of the the terrible living situation of the residents of the Gaza Strip are Abu Mazen, who didn’t hesitate to sacrifice them for an internal war, and Hamas, who levies taxes on Gaza residents and invests the majority of the money in digging tunnels and manufacturing and smuggling weapons, instead of improving their lives.”Liberman also asked Guterres to work to get the Hamas terrorist group to release the two Israeli citizens and the remains of two IDF soldiers that are currently being held by the group.The defense minister noted that Hamas has not released any information on the conditions of the two civilians, Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, nor has it allowed representatives from the Red Cross to meet with them.“This is cruelty towards the families of the soldiers and the civilians, and I expect the international community and the UN to use its voice and put pressure on Hamas,” Liberman said.

ZECHARIAH 12:1-5 King James Bible
1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
ISAIAH 28:14-19 (THIS IS THE 7 YR TREATY COVENANT OF DANIEL 9:27)
14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
UN chief in Ramallah says no alternative to two-state solution-During meeting with Palestinian PM, Guterres condemns settlements, calls for all sides to ‘avoid forms of incitement’-By AFP August 29, 2017, 5:05 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
RAMALLAH, West Bank — UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said Tuesday a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remained the only viable option as he made his first visit to the West Bank since taking office.Guterres spoke after meeting Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Ramallah following talks with Israeli leaders on Monday.“I want to express very strongly [not only] the total commitment of the United Nations but my personal total commitment to do everything for a two-state solution to materialize,” he said.“I have said several times there is no Plan B to a two-state solution.”A two-state solution to the conflict has been endorsed by Israeli and Palestinian leaders for over a decade, but support for the framework has recently been called into question in Jerusalem and Washington.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu heads what is seen as one of the most right-wing government’s in Israel’s history, and on Monday said his government would not evacuate Israeli settlements in the West Bank, land which the Palestinians see as the basis of their future state.Some members of Netanyahu’s coalition advocate annexing large swaths of the West Bank currently under full Israeli civil and military control, which critics say would make an independent Palestinian state unviable.US President Donald Trump has said he wants to reach the “ultimate deal,” but has not himself spoke out in favor of the two-state solution, saying he could support whatever solution “both parties like,” breaking with decades of US support for Palestinian statehood.Palestinian leaders have continued to express their support for a two-state solution, but a State Department spokeswoman said last week the US did not want to “bias one side over the other” in peace talks by supporting a two-state solution and no mention of it was made in official statements following a meeting last week between White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.Guterres on Tuesday said Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace, while also noting that they are “illegal under international law.”After meeting Netanyahu Monday, he criticized settlements but also said Palestinians must condemn terrorism.He said on Tuesday that “it is important to create conditions for leaders of all sides to appeal for calm, to avoid forms of incitement, for violence to settle down.”Israeli leaders have said Palestinian incitement against the Jewish state is a key reason why peace efforts have not advanced.Peace efforts have been at a standstill since a US-led initiative collapsed in 2014.Following the meeting with Guterres, Hamdallah called on the United Nations to compel Israel to abide by the rules of international law and impose what he said was international justice that has been absent for 70 years, the official Wafa news agency reported.Dov Lieber contributed to this report.
US asked for 3-4 months to present peace plan, Abbas adviser says-Nabil Shaath: Palestinians set out their demands, but Kushner-led delegation did not address any specifics-By Dov Lieber August 28, 2017, 7:06 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The American delegation that met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas last week asked for a three-to-four-month “grace period” in order to present a peace plan, and did not address any specific Palestinian demands, said Abbas’s foreign affairs adviser Nabil Shaath on Monday.White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and his team met Abbas in Ramallah on Thursday, in his second visit meeting with the PA leader aimed at paving the way to renewed peace talks with Israelis.Shaath, speaking to the official Voice of Palestine radio, said the American delegation, which also included US President Donald Trump’s peace envoy Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell, did not bring anything new to the table, and asked for more time to produce a peace plan.“The US delegation asked the [Palestinian] leadership to give the American administration a three to four month grace period to present a plan,” Shaath said, according to a summary of his statements carried in the PA’s official news outlet Wafa.“The US delegation,” Shaath added, “did not present any position opposing or supporting Palestinian demands.”Shaath, a former Palestinian negotiator, said that the Palestinians told the American delegation its demands are “the end of the occupation, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, as well as the resolution of all permanent status issues, including the right return for [Palestinian] refugees.”On Sunday, the Israel Hayom daily cited an unnamed Palestinian official who said Kushner told Abbas that Trump would present a peace plan in the next three to four months in exchange for the Palestinian leader abandoning efforts to pursue statehood in international bodies.The paper said Abbas agreed to Kushner’s proposal, but demanded that Trump personally commit to the US peace plan, setting a meeting between the two leaders during the UN General Assembly in September.The US plan would include a set timetable for talks, which would focus on the so-called core issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Palestinian official said.The report of the planned US proposal came amid recent signs of disillusionment from Abbas over US peace efforts.On Saturday, the White House dismissed as nonsense a report in the pan-Arab newspaper al-Hayat that Kushner had warned Abbas that a settlement freeze long sought by the Palestinians could not be a precondition for talks.In contrast, the Al-Monitor news site reported Friday that Abbas came away from the meeting pleased with Trump’s commitment to the peace process.“Today we understood more than ever that President Trump is indeed engaged [in the diplomatic process], he knows what his team is working on and what they are talking about, and he also found time despite the mess he is in to convey messages to Abbas,” an unnamed Palestinian source told Al-Monitor.The Palestinian source also said Kushner told Abbas the US was under the impression the PA president does not trust the White House and stressed that the US is working hard toward creating the conditions for a peace deal.“There was a feeling that the Americans were offended,” the source said, “and that’s why Abbas was quick to explain himself and say that he was willing to reach a peace deal.”Despite his recent pessimism, Abbas sounded a positive note during his meeting with Kushner.“We know that this issue is difficult and complex, but nothing is impossible in the face of good efforts,” Abbas said during the parley with Kushner, according to official PA news outlet Wafa.“We affirm that this [US] delegation is working toward peace, and we are working with it to achieve soon what Trump called the ‘peace deal,’” he added.Palestinian security chief Majid Faraj told Al-Monitor that Abbas was facing pressure at home to move forward on peace efforts.“While Netanyahu keeps putting up obstacles to avoid getting to the negotiating table for fear that his government will collapse, Abbas wants to move forward because he is under growing domestic pressure,” he said.The Palestinian leader’s remarks expressing confidence in US efforts came despite the Trump administration’s continued refusal to endorse the two-state solution, in order to not, as State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Wednesday, “bias one side over the other.”In his remarks carried by the official PA news outlet, Wafa, Kushner did not mention a two-state solution and only offered vague sentiments about peace in the future.“President Trump is very optimistic and hopes for a better future for the Palestinian people and the Israeli people,” Kushner said. “We hope they can work together and live together for many years and have a much better life.”Prior to meeting with Abbas last week, Kushner met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv, where he told the premier that Trump is “very committed” to help broker a peace deal.“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,” he said. “We really appreciate the commitment of the prime minister and his team to engaging very thoughtfully and respectfully in the way that the president has asked him to do so.”Netanyahu for his part told Kushner he believed peace was “within our reach.”Alexander Fulbright contributed to this report.
Erdogan tells Abbas rising tensions ‘no good’ for Israelis, Palestinians-Turkish leader hosts PA president, says his government ‘backs efforts to accelerate the peace process’-By Times of Israel staff August 28, 2017, 10:51 pm
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ankara, and said finding a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would be beneficial to both sides.“To find a solution and provide peace is not only in Palestinians’ favor but also that of Israel,” he said at a joint press conference with Abbas according to reports in Turkish media. “As we witnessed during events, rising tension is not good for either side.”Abbas and Erdogan reportedly discussed Israeli “acts of aggression” during the recent uptick in tensions surrounding the Temple Mount holy site, in the wake of a deadly terror attack at the Jerusalem holy site.Erdogan called the two-state solution to the conflict as the “historical responsibility of the international community to the Palestinian people,” and said that his government “always back[s] efforts to accelerate the peace process.”“We do not want the holy city of Jerusalem, which we have served for four centuries, to dominate the news with blood, tears and conflict,” the Turkish leader said.According to the official PA news outlet Wafa, the two leaders also discussed ongoing efforts to end the schism between the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority and Gaza’s Hamas rulers.Last week, Erdogan, joined by Jordan’s King Abdullah II, called for new “serious and effective” peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.Meeting in Amman, they urged “the resumption of serious and effective negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel to end the conflict on the basis of a two-state solution, to assure an independent Palestinian state with June 1967 borders and East Jerusalem as capital.”Talks between Israel and the Palestinians have been at a standstill since the failure of US mediation in the spring of 2014.“New peace negotiations must take place according to a precise timetable and be based on international resolutions,” Erdogan and Abdullah said.They also expressed their “unequivocal rejection of any attempt to change the legal and historical situation in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and any unilateral Israeli action threatening the identity of East Jerusalem.”The sensitive Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem’s Old City was the focus last month of a tense standoff, after Israel introduced new security measures following a terror attack in which three Arab Israelis shot dead two police officers using weapons smuggled into the Al-Aqsa Mosque.Jordan’s king said earlier this month that a peaceful solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians was becoming increasingly difficult.
