Kushner said the president "is very committed to achieving a solution here that will be able to bring prosperity and peace to all people in the area, and we really appreciate the commitment of the prime minister in engaging very thoughtfully and respectfully in the way the president has asked", adding that "the relationship between Israel and America is stronger than ever".
"The Israeli government definitely feels it has a freer hand with Trump", said Anat Ben-Nun, a Peace Now staffer.
First of all, they're demanding the Trump administration publicly commit to a Palestinian state, which previous US administrations have done.
They said: "Every child has the right to safe access to education and States have an obligation to protect, respect and fulfil this right, by ensuring that schools are inviolable safe spaces for children".
The report of a Palestinian ultimatum, published Tuesday on the al-Monitor news website, followed Abbas' complaints on Sunday to a delegation of left-wing Israeli MKs that the Trump administration is "in chaos" and has been unresponsive to Palestinian demands vis-a-vis Israel, especially the demand that Washington force Israel back to the negotiating table.

A couple dozen Palestinians protested the visit on Thursday in Ramallah, burning the Israeli flag and pictures of Trump.
Ahmed Majdalani, a senior Palestinian Liberation Organisation official who is close to Abbas, told AFP on Thursday that one option if no progress is reached would be to dissolve the Palestinian Authority - a threat that has been made in the past.
The document issued in November 1917 by the then British foreign secretary Arthur Balfour said the United Kingdom government "views with favor the establishment in Palestine of" Israel. "I think this is a sign of the great alliance between us and the great goals that guide us".
Yet a U.S. delegation on the ground seeking to salvage peace talks between the two sides now faces increasing pressure to take a stand, with Palestinian Authority leadership, in particular, insistent that Trump recognize the two-state solution as the only viable path forward for peace. Attacking those parties makes them less likely to support Netanyahu and leaves the Israeli Prime Minister with little flexibility for negotiations.
"Abbas is coming to the end of his reign".
Kyrie Irving gets TRADED to a Rival Eastern Team — MEGATRADE
Crowder, a physical player , averaged 13.9 points a game last season, and Zizic is a highly regarded prospect from Europe. The fear would be that his hip injury compromises his speed, but there's no way to really tell until he's on the court.
In the USA delegation's talks Wednesday with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, both sides also reaffirmed their commitment to boosting ties and countering terrorism, state-run Saudi Press Agency reported. "And I think, really, that's the best view as to not really bias one side over the other, to make sure that they can work through it". "Since the Trump administration came to power, we've seen the advancement of thousands of housing units through plans and tenders".
Abbas also faces internal political problems, as his Fatah party struggles with Hamas, the militant group that runs Gaza, for control and power in the Palestinian political sphere. Trump also has been less critical of Israeli settlement building then his predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, who repeatedly clashed with the Netanyahu government over the issue and demanded a settlement freeze as a precondition for peace talks, a stance the Palestinians then adopted as well.
"It is time for President Trump to pay serious attention to the establishment of a Palestinian state".
"That kind of leverage has a very short shelf life if it's not used", warns Daniel Shapiro, the former US Ambassador to Israel under Barack Obama.
The administration has been hoping that there is an opportunity here because some of those Arab countries are beginning to find some shared interests with Israel, and maybe they could offer incentives to Israel to help push Israeli-Palestinian peace. And if Trump pressures both leaders to come to the negotiating table, they may find it hard to refuse.
