The Palestinians will not meet with any United States officials regarding the peace process in the future, in response to US President Donald Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a senior diplomatic adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told The Times of Israel on Sunday.

The open-ended boycott includes Trump’s top peace envoy Jason Greenblatt, who is due here this week, as well as the US leader’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

“No one from the American administration will be met to discuss peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis, because the [PA] president was very clear on that,” said Majdi al-Khalidi, referring to Abbas’s speech at the Organization of Islamic Countries on Wednesday in Istanbul.

Khalidi added that Greenblatt, who is expected to arrive in the region amid violent protests over Trump’s announcement, did not request a meeting with the Palestinians, with whom he has met on numerous occasions in the past, Khalidi said. …

Good. Now we can drop this charade and quit sending them hundreds of millions of US dollars.

Im sure negotiations will move on without them
New arabs can always be rented to play the role of peace negotiators

Heck Jared should send some newly groomed leaders back to the camps bearing Christmas gifts for the peasants!
And cut off the bank accounts of the former “negotiators”

So what happens if they reach a Peace agreement?

So all the Walls come down?

There is no way I would trust the Walls coming down!

There could be mass killings!

I am cool with that.
Cut the money off, end recognition of the. PA.
Recognize Israel’s claim to Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan.

Peace will only come when the Palestinians decide this is what they want. When this happens, they will stop teaching hatred for the US and the Israelis in their schools. The best plan is for all Mosques to trash the old school texts and come into the modern era.

Israel is here to stay, Jerusalem is the capital. The Jews will always be better armed and more prepared to defend themselves than the Arabs will be ready to cause violence.

The best move Trump has made is a recognition of this and an overture to the Saudis. Now the ball is in the Arab court.

It's an opportunity for the LSM et al to trot out the second worst president in US history, Jimmy Carter.

Peace. Reminds me of the Three Stooges as Nazis. Moe Hailstone wanted peace. A piece of this and a piece of that.

The “Peace Process” is a joke that has gone on so long it passed its Sell By Date.

What I would do is say OK but they have the checks. If you don’t meet them the money goes back into the treasury until you do
