Palestinian Leader Denounces Trump’s Mideast Plan at U.N.

"When the trump administration unveiled its Middle East peace plan the president of the Palestinian authority responded with quote a thousand nose at the UN security council today Mahmoud Abbas tried to show he was not alone in opposing comes plan which favors Israeli positions and tears Michele Kellerman has more holding up the map that the trump administration propose muck mood Abbas told the security council that it would leave a future Palestinian state fragmented without any real control over airspace land or sea Abbas spoke through an interpreter why did though that this is the state that they will give us yeah yeah like a Swiss cheese really the whole among you will accept according to a similar state and similar conditions Abbas's allies dropped plans to have the security council vote on a resolution condemning the plan a trump administration statement said it was a sign that the quote old way of doing things is over and that diplomats are ready to think outside the box rather than fall back on the calcified Palestinian position but most council members did criticize the US planned European diplomats said it departs from the internationally agreed parameters of a negotiated settlement to the Israeli Palestinian conflict Abbas argued through an interpreter that the deal legitimizes the quote confiscation and annexation of Palestinian land I would like to say to Mr Donald Trump yeah I'm not the rule that the proposed American do you cannot achieve peace and security because I canceled international legitimacy you can cancel international legitimacy trump's plan gives Palestinians for years to negotiate during that time Israel is not supposed to build on land that according to its map would be part of a Palestinian state but it also gives a green light to Israel to declare sovereignty over Israeli settlements in the occupied west bank without any agreement from the Palestinians Israel's ambassador to the U. N. Danny denounces Israel will coordinate that with the trump administration we value the walk of the administration we know that will come out that in the visits of the team to a religion hundreds of meetings and we all talking with them we will coordinate with them our next moves like we did in the past and we have a strong partnership with the United States he blasted Abbas for rushing to the U. N. rather than negotiating with Israel or making a counter offer and unknown told the security council that peace won't be possible until Abbas leaves office the US ambassador Kelly craft question whether this debate was worth the time my fervent hope is that after today's rhetoric clears Palestinian leaders will see this plan for the opportunity areas roll up their sleeves and seize this chance to sit down with the leaders of Israel to begin a new conversation trump son in law an adviser Jared Kushner who drafted the plan told CNN that if the Palestinians don't negotiate they're going to quote screw up another opportunity like they've screwed up every opportunity that they've ever had and quote Abbas made a point this afternoon of appearing alongside a former Israeli prime minister a Ehud Olmert who called Abbas a man of peace their talks failed in two thousand eight after all merit was indicted for bribery and forced to resign Michele Kelemen
