Kushner's explanation why Israel needs to build settlements sucks so much ass

"We have clearly emphasized to the Americans the importance of having a public statement that has a commitment to the two-state solution،" Ashraf Khatib، a spokesman for the negotiation affairs department of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)، told the Washington Post on Friday.

"We want to work toward a peace that both sides can agree to and that both sides find sustainable". In January, U.S President Donald Trump pledged to urge Israelis and Palestinians for a peace deal. "We know that things are hard and complicated, but there is nothing impossible with good efforts". Also, the team will examine economic steps ahead of a potential peace deal. Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians have been at a standstill since the failure of USA mediation in the spring of 2014. That has rankled Palestinian officials, who say negotiations without any set parameters will only benefit the Israeli side.

Ramallah- Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reiterated his administration's commitment to a two-state solution being the sole settlement for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

"We highly appreciate President Trump's efforts to strike a historical peace deal، a statement he repeated more than one time during our meetings in Washington، Riyadh and Bethlehem،" Abbas said at the start of his meeting with Kushner، according to the PA's official Wafa news agency.

However, Abbas stressed that negotiations should be based on the framework of a two-state solution and for illegal settlements to cease. "There hasn't been any".

Aloul, considered one of the candidates to succeed Abbas as the head of Fatah, said in an interview with Saudi news site Elaph regarding the visit of an American delegation last week in Israel that, "These visits haven't led to any results".

"We have told the Americans that we are committed to the American effort", Khatib said. They talked to us about incitement.

"There was a feeling that the Americans were offended", the source said, "and that's why Abbas was quick to explain himself and say that he was willing to reach a peace deal".

According to Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri, the child was hit around noon on Route 90 in the Jordan Valley area of the West Bank, while Palestinian medical sources said that the girl was run over by an Israeli settler's vehicle near the Furush Beit Dajan village in the Nablus district. Abbas, 82, is also fighting for his political survival as he reaches the end of his political tenure and is keen to carve out a legacy.
