Trump, Abbas Call for Revival of Palestinian-Israeli Peace Talks

Standing with Trump after their talk in Abbas' presidential residence, Abbas said that Palestinians "are committed to working with you to reach a historic peace deal between us and Israel".

An official statement by the PA's foreign ministry described Netanyahu as "racist denying the occupation's existence".

His Tel Aviv visit came after Saudi Arabia, the president's first station, sent positive signals to the Israeli side, promoting the idea of diplomatic normalization with the Israelis among the Arab and Muslim leaders.

"We'll talk about it over dinner", Sara said.

The US president joining an Arabian sword dance was one.

Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance coalition, welcomed Trump's comments and called on the worldwide community to confront the reality of Iranian Regime terrorism and fundamentalism.

The American president sought restarting the peace process by meeting both the Israeli and Palestinian leaders. This tension will remain until a peaceful solution is ultimately found between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Like Obama and many previous US presidents, Trump has pressed Israel to curtail settlement construction in the West Bank.

In contrast, Husam Zomlot, Palestinian ambassador to the United States and a key Abbas ally, said he did not see Trump's comments as a USA policy shift.

Clashes broke out between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces on Wednesday as Israeli demonstrators marched through the Old City of Jerusalem to mark the 50th anniversary of Israel's capture of the city's eastern half.

The trip also managed to produce plenty of awkward moments involving Trump and his administration - there were some unfortunate typos, a failed attempt at holding the first lady's hand (which went viral) and two geographic flubs.

At the "Arab Islamic American Summit" on 21 May at Riyadh, Trump called for Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf Monarchies to make a renewed commitment to the war against terrorism. "It is now time to recognize her ancient and eternal city as her eternal and undivided capital", Franks said during one of three events in Washington this week to urge the embassy move.

The White House made another unfortunate typo in a live video feed of Trump's visit to Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial, by incorrectly spelling the museum "Vad Vanshem" - something that sounds closer to the name of a Dutch count. "It's not just the Saudis, it's also the Emirates, also the Qataris, also the Iranians; they are all acquiring weapons". "This depends on how much Trump is determined - right now it looks like he means business", he said. Having claimed Islam hated America and imposed a ban on Muslims from seven Muslim nations, Trump's call to Muslim leaders to unite was something very few would have foreseen.

He drew more applause when he said: "We are telling you right now that Iran will not have nuclear weapons".

While Tillerson did not fully explain his comments, the mere suggestion that solving the Israeli-Palestinian is key to solving the broader problems of the Middle East in challenging violent extremism is "nonsensical", said Tamara Cofman Wittes, a Senior Fellow in the Center for Middle East policy at Brookings Institute.
