Israelis, Palestinians not looking to make peace

Intel Source: Arab States Fed Up with Abbas Opposing Trump Israelis, Palestinians not looking to make peace

Contrary to the image portrayed by mainstream media, U.S. President Donald Trump kept his plans off the table with regard to Iranian actions in Syria - and for that matter, with regard to his plans for the Palestinian Authority.

As to whether Israel will be expected to give something in return for the Jerusalem move, as he has hinted several times since the December 6 announcement, Trump replied, "I think both sides will have to make hard compromises to reach a peace agreement".

Asked by editor-in-chief Boaz Bismouth when the USA would present its peace plan, Mr Trump said: "We will see what happens".

Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, plans to make a bipartisan pitch for recognizing Jerusalem as that nation's capital when he addresses the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas Saturday.

"Right now, I would say the Palestinians are not looking to make peace".

"I don't know frankly if we are going to even have talks".

Palestinian leaders say there can be no peace talks involving the United States administration until its decision on the city, whose eastern neighborhoods they claim for a future capital, is reversed.

"The settlements complicate on a different level - and it's always complicated - in making peace, so Israel needs to act with caution on the topic of settlements", Trump said.

He said he believes Israel is demonstrating "great sensitivity" in allowing the freedom to practice diverse religious beliefs at the holy sites that are located in Jerusalem. "It's our only opportunity and it will never happen after this", he asserted.

Gabriel warned Israel against being lulled into indecision because of the warm embrace of the Trump administration, which recently recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and has been critical of the Palestinian leadership.

In the interview, Trump said that his recognition of Jerusalem as the country's capital was one of the highlights of his presidency thus far. "When I think of the likely consequences I think this is more ambivalent", Gabriel said.

Last month multiple media outlets reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expected Trump's administration to move the USA embassy into Jerusalem by the end of 2018. "I think Bibi Netanyahu is a terrific person, a terrific leader, I think the relationships are good, but I think they will be a lot better if they ever get to making a peace deal".
