(1.11.2017) The Islamic militant group Hamas on Wednesday handed over control of Gaza’s border crossings with Israel and Egypt to the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority, taking the first tangible step toward implementing a reconciliation deal with the rival Fatah movement.
The report does not specify when the meeting took place, but says it came amid a series of meetings Argaman held with senior PA officials in recent months in which he stressed they would benefit from renewed contact between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
While many critics of the Trump administration have claimed there is no peace plan, Haley said she had read it, but told reporters that it would not be rolled out during this month’s United Nations General Assembly debate when Trump and other world leaders will address the global body.
“I can tell you that (White House senior adviser) Jared Kushner and (Trump’s special envoy for international negotiations) Jason Greenblatt have done unbelievably detailed work in it. I have read the plan. It is thoroughly done. It is well-thought-out from both sides, the Palestinians and the Israelis.“

(1.5.2018) Abbas ist Kollaborateur der israelischen Besatzungsmacht. Seine Aufgabe ist es, effektiven Widerstand gegen die Besatzung zu verhindern, stattdessen die Vorurteile vom primitiven, überall lauernden palästinensischen Judenmörder und Barbaren zu bedienen, alle Unterstützer der palästinensischen Sache entweder zu vergraulen oder mit solchem Wahnsinn genau so zu diskreditieren wie die Palästinenser insgesamt, und der Regierung von Benjamin Netanjahu auf jede erdenkliche Weise in die Hände zu spielen, genauso wie bisher und das möglichst so, dass es schlichter gestrickten Charakteren nicht auffällt.
(2.9.2018) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told Israeli members of the Knesset during a meeting in his office in Ramallah Sunday that — despite the deep crisis with the Trump administration — a Palestinian delegation of security and intelligence officials is in Washington, D.C. for talks with the CIA.
Why it matters: The connection between the CIA and the Palestinian General Intelligence service is one of the few functioning channels of communication …
Abbas insists that Egyptian efforts prioritize reconciliation between his Fatah party and its rival Hamas, and that the Palestine Liberation Organization, which he chairs, play a central role in agreeing to a ceasefire, the London-based Al-Hayat daily newspaper reported.
Kurz vor einem Waffenstillstand zwischen der im aufständischen Teil der israelischen Kolonie Palästina herrschenden Hamas im Gazastreifen und der israelischen Regierung Netanyahu in Jerusalem eskaliert plötzlich die Situation.
Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces on Saturday evening prevented the Palestinian citizens taking part in a demonstration against PA sanctions on Gaza from reaching the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Ramallah.
At 83, ailing and with his days in power nearing their end, Abbas’ decisions are guided by thoughts of his legacy, and more importantly, what will happen to his family on the day his successor takes his place in the Muqata, Israeli sources say.
However, the prime minister had to make it look like something was being done, in light of the fires that keep raging in Israeli border communities. The media and right-wing critics have already pushed Netanyahu into a military operation he didn’t want in the Gaza Strip, twice: Operation Pillar of Defense (2012) and Operation Protective Edge (2014). This time, he looked better prepared to stand firm in the breach, but not to take responsibility.
Moscow had earlier invited the Israeli prime minister to attend the final game of the FIFA World Cup on July 15, where Netanyahu could have found himself in the stadium together with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Yet Netanyahu, who is reluctant to meet with Abbas, opted for an earlier visit, while the Palestinian leader will come for the final as originally planned.
Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority have all separately warned Israel over the past year about growing Turkish activity in East Jerusalem, which they say is part of an attempt by Turkish…
Der Protest fand trotz eines vorübergehenden Demonstrationsverbots statt, das am Mittwoch verkündet wurde. Die Veranstalter haben weitere Kundgebungen angekündigt. Demonstranten haben den PA-Führer Mahmoud Abbas von der Fatah aufgefordert, Sanktionen gegen die rivalisierende Hamas in Gaza fallen zu lassen, von denen sie glauben, dass sie dessen zwei Millionen Einwohner treffen.
