Abbas adviser says Trump visit could reopen path to talks

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan informed Trump of a possible attack in Tel Aviv that transpired while the president was airborne.

Trump is the first sitting USA president to visit the Western wall, yet the administration remains unclear on whether it believes the wall is part of Israel.

He pressed again for 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital "as well as resolving the entire final status issues based on global law and worldwide long-term resolutions, and respecting side agreements, which sets the tone for the implementation of the Arab Peace Initiative in accordance with what has been reaffirmed in the most recent Arab Summit in Jordan".

The area has been a hot contention issue between Israel and Palestine.

The Western Wall sits in Jerusalem's Old City, which was captured by Israel during the Six-Day War in 1967. She lived there when she was in her 20's.

Saudi Arabia doesn't recognize Israel and the two states don't have diplomatic relations. "I think that creates a different dynamic".

Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas accused US President Donald Trump on Monday of smearing the name of Palestinian "resistance" to Israeli occupation during a speech on Islam.


Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said Trump's remarks were "aimed at besmirching the reputation of the Palestinian resistance".

But the warm reception that President Donald Trump received during his trip to Israel this week signaled that the Israeli Prime Minister is glad and perhaps even relieved by the recent change in USA leadership.

The route took the president past the "Walled Off Hotel", a guesthouse run by the British graffiti artist Banksy that is created to draw attention to the security infrastructure, which Israel says is there to protect against Palestinian attacks.

"If President Trump can come home with that deal, he'll be able to say, 'I accomplished more in 130 days than the previous four presidents have accomplished, '" Dershowitz said.

The Palestinian leader added that "the key to peace" in the Middle East was the independence and freedom of the Palestinian people. "You know, I can relate a lot to what Baron is going through because I've been his age during my dad's first term".

"Once again we reassert to you our positions", Abbas said elaborating, "accepting the two-state solution along the borders of 1967, a state of Palestine with a capital in East Jerusalem alongside Israel... and resolving longstanding issues based on worldwide law and agreements... in accordance with Arab peace initiative".
