    Russia's Putin and Turkey's Erdogan agree on creation of Palestinian state In a phonecall, the two leaders "discussed the situation of Middle East peace talks in the context of the resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on the status of Jerusalem," the Kremlin said in a statement. They "confirmed the mutual disposition to continue to assist in resolving the Palestine-Israeli conflict on the basis of international norms and realisation of the right of the Palestinian people to create an independent state," it said. US President Donald Trump decided on December 6 to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Trump's move...

    Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat revealed in a report prepared for the PLO Central Committee meeting last week details of the American proposal for a “deal of the century” aimed at advancing an agreement to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict. According to the report, the outline drawn up by US President Donald Trump’s negotiating team included the annexation of 10% of Judea and Samaria by Israel and the placement of the capital of the future state of Palestine in the suburbs of Jerusalem. The proposed Palestinian state would be demilitarized, and Israel would maintain a security presence along the Jordan...

    The head of the Shin Bet security service on Sunday warned that the Hamas terrorist group is poised to take over the West Bank from the “very weak” Mahmoud Abbas, who controls the ruling Palestinian Authority, according to a television report. Nadav Argaman was quoted by Hadashot news as saying the ongoing reconciliation between the two groups was “not going to succeed, even if it takes a little more time.” […] According to a statement put out by the Knesset committee, Argaman also told the committee members that the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist group does not appear to be interested in...

    One protester was killed and 100 were wounded Friday during a “day of rage” in the West Bank, Gaza and in East Jerusalem, as Palestinians railed against President Trump’s recognition of the ancient city as Israel’s capital, according to reports. The dead man was felled by Israeli fire in Gaza, while others were injured from tear gas inhalation and rubber bullets, Palestinian officials say. As Friday prayers ended at the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, worshippers made their way toward the Old City and chanted: “Jerusalem is ours, Jerusalem is our capital” and “We don’t need empty words, we need...

    The IDF said Thursday five battalions have been put on standby in the West Bank in light of the high tensions on the Temple Mount. After three Israeli Arabs came out of the Temple Mount complex armed and opened fire at an Israeli police force, killing two of the officers, Israel added metal detectors and security cameras at the entrance gates to the holy site to prevent the smuggling of more weapons inside. The added security was met with strong objection from the Palestinians, Israeli Arabs, other Arab nations and the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf. They claim the move constitutes a...

    Resolution 2334 has now declared as illegal the rights vested by the Mandate in the Jewish People to reconstitute the Jewish National Home in East Jerusalem, Gaza and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) President Trump’s meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May this coming Friday affords them a perfect opportunity to discuss reaffirming their countries commitments to the Jewish People made by America in 2004 and Great Britain in 1922—which were seriously undermined when neither country vetoed Security Council Resolution 2334 on 23 December 2016.

    Israel said Tuesday it approved 2,500 new settler homes in the West Bank, signaling a major ramp-up of construction just days after the swearing-in of U.S. President Donald Trump, whose election has emboldened the settlement movement. Trump is widely expected to be more sympathetic to Israel’s settlement policies than the fiercely critical Obama administration, and has also vowed to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem. Israel’s nationalist government has welcomed the prospective change in policy, but it also risks igniting Palestinian or even regional unrest. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement that he and...

If that is impossible, we should end the bailouts and invite the United Nations to find another country to call home In the wake of the controversial United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an end to Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the incoming Trump administration should seriously consider ending our annual bailout of this corrupt institution.

    Israel will move ahead with plans to build thousands of new homes in East Jerusalem, refusing to back down after a United Nations vote last week declared such housing there and in the West Bank illegal under international law. The vote succeeded after the United States, in a historic break with precedent, abstained. According to the New York Times, the city will approve the construction of 600 new housing units Wednesday, a first step in what will ultimately amount to 5,600 new Jewish homes in the Arab section of the city.

    Outgoing US Secretary State John Kerry expressed disappointment Sunday that his efforts over the past four years have not put an end to the construction of homes in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. Speaking at the Saban Forum, Kerry said that Israel is "heading to a place of danger" and that the chances for peace are eroding "by virtue of this continued settlement process." "I don't agree with him that settlements are not an obstacle to peace," Kerry said. "Let's not kid ourselves here– you can't just wipe it away by saying it doesn't have an impact. It has...
