Gaza blames Israel for tunnel blast 'killing two Palestinians'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara) attend a memorial ceremony for Ron Nahman the founder of Ariel one of the largest Israeli settlements in the West Bank

"I'm thinking about it".

'No, I don't want to condemn Israel, ' the president told the Israel Hayom newspaper in an interview published Friday morning. It's been discussed for so many years. "I'm thinking about it very seriously, and we will see what happens", Trump said. The family of Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, has also donated tens of thousands of dollars over the years to West Bank settlements.

Eyewitnesses who were at the funeral of one of the two workers in Rafah said that the tunnel opening on the Egyptian side was struck, not the Palestinian side, and both workers were killed.

The US and many other countries have long said that the status of Jerusalem is dependent on a final peace agreement, and that moving embassies there would prejudge the outcome. So many people think it can not be made.

Last week, the White House issued a mild rebuke over a spate of approvals for new settlement homes, warning that expansion in areas Palestinians want for their own state "may not be helpful" to peace efforts.

"No, I don't want to condemn Israel", he said. "I think peace for Israel would be great for Israel, not just good".

Trump appeared to be suggesting that peace talks would involve moderate Arab nations such as Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Abbas stressed that the Palestinians will confront Israel in global forums and continue to work with worldwide courts to protect their existence and presence in their state, which also includes building their future state.

Trump appeared to question Netanyahu's claim that the settlements were not an obstacle to peace.

A top Hamas official told Breitbart Jerusalem that the movement reinforced its deployment along the Egyptian border in a bid to block jihadists from crossing into Gaza to use the territory as a launching pad for attacks against Israel. Every time you take land for a settlement, less territory remains. But we are looking at that, and we are looking at some other options we'll see.

More than 60 percent of the West Bank is under complete Israeli military and civilian control, where even permissions for Palestinians to add a barn or plow a field must be approved by the military government.

He said that "passing a law to legalize settlers' theft of Palestinians' land and announcing thousands of new settler units in our occupied land is an attack against the Palestinian people that is contrary to worldwide law and a barefaced challenge of the global position". He also said peace would be a an excellent development for Israel. "Israel has had a long history of condemnation and difficulty".

"He wants to do the right thing for Israel", Trump said, adding, "I believe that he wants peace and wants to have it badly".
