Donald Trump: Israeli-Palestinian peace deal could spread throughout region

Kenny Thornton | 23 May, 2017, 20:15

Mr. Trump, who met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas earlier Tuesday in the West Bank, said the goal of his trip to the Middle East is ridding the world of such terrorist attacks. Abbas's Fatah party is at sharp odds with the Islamist group Hamas, which is in power in Gaza, leaving no unified Palestinian position on peace.

"So you have another story wrong", he told reporters.

But even as Trump points to a behind the scenes rapprochement between Israel and Arab countries in the Middle East and with his advisers insisting the new USA administration is approaching the conflict differently from those that preceded it, the political conditions between Israelis and Palestinians appear largely unchanged. But I think that our process - right now, we have a very good idea what that will be.

"If Israeli and the Palestinians can make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the Middle East".

President Donald Trump calls those involved in Manchester attack "losers".

A senior Palestinian official says he expects President Donald Trump's visit to the Holy Land to reopen a path toward resuming long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Mr Trump himself never commented. We all know that. "But with determination, compromise and the belief that peace is possible, Israelis and Palestinians can make a deal", Trump said. "The terrorists and extremists and those who give them aid and comfort must be driven out from our society forever", Trump said.

"I've heard it's one of the toughest deals of all, but I have a feeling that we're going to get there eventually, I hope", Trump said on Monday night.

Standing alongside Abbas on Tuesday in the West Bank, Trump said he was "truly hopeful" that his administration could broker a peace agreement and called his meetings with Arab leaders in the region "deeply productive". That's despite Trump's campaign rhetoric, which signaled he would embolden right-wing forces in Israel.

On Tuesday, the first arrest was made in connection with the inquiry. " Many are being treated for life-threatening conditions". Police said dozens more were injured in the Monday night blast carried out by a male, who was killed. "This was an evil act".

"Suddenly, hope has come about", he added.

"We can not stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people and in today's attack it was mostly innocent children", Trump said. He met Monday evening with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who sat on stage with Trump as he delivered his remarks Tuesday at the Israel Museum.

"On those issues, there is a strong consensus among the nations of the world - including many in the Muslim world", Trump said.

Security was tight for Trump's journey to Bethlehem, a 20-minute drive from Jerusalem but located across Israel's separation wall.

'We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom.

The testimony could shed light on concerns about the security risk posed by Trump's first national security adviser.

"Conflict can not continue forever". But as Trump arrived in Jerusalem after meetings in Saudi Arabia, the president indicated that he and those Arab states see an agreement with the Palestinians as integral to that new regional alignment.

A who's who of conservative supporters attended the speech in Israel, with GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee among the crowd.
