US President Donald Trump has called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pause settlement expansion in order to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians, but he would not indicate commitment to a two-state solution.

The United States will encourage a peace and really a great peace deal” between Israel and the Palestinians, but they have to negotiate it themselves, Trump said at a joint press conference with Netanyahu in Washington, DC on Wednesday.“Both sides will have to make compromises.”

I want the Israeli people to know that the US stands with Israel in the struggle against terrorism, ”the US president added, calling Israel a “cherished ally.”

Israel has no better ally than the US,” Netanyahu said, “and the US has no better ally than Israel.

The Israeli PM praised Trump’s commitment to resist “slander and boycotts” of his country in international bodies, and said both Israel and the US are under attack “by one malevolent force – radical Islamic terrorism.”

Asked if he preferred a one-state or a two-state solution, Trump said, “I’m happy with the one they like the best,” referring to both Israelis and the Palestinians.

“I’d like to see you hold off on settlements for a little bit,” he told Netanyahu, and said the US was “looking with great care” at relocating the embassy to Jerusalem, thus recognizing Israel’s claim to the city as its capital.

Israel had two prerequisites for any peace settlement, Netanyahu said. “First, the Palestinians must recognize the Jewish state, they must stop calling for Israel’s destruction… Second, Israel must retain security control over all of the area west of the Jordan River.”

the emperor is wearing no clothes..the veil is lifted?

i think there is a bit of creative journalism here..he dint really endorse one state..even if thats what he wants..one state is not acceptable..on any grounds..

  1. one state is a perfectly good solution, as long as it’s called palestine, gives equal rights to all citizens, and bans advocacy of zionism. that would make ‘jews’ a minority.

    Too Important not to share. The best Pizzagate compilation I’ve seen to date.

    I figured I’d post this under a Israel post as there are many Jewish links.

    Watch Sessions slap Bidens hand away from his grand daughter:

  4. Way to continue to support an illegal occupation and war crimes!
    Bringing on the chaos (and openly apartheid nations).
    Peace will never come for a two state nation.
    The banksters know this.
