Nikki Haley to Palestinians and the United Nations: 'I will not shut up'

Nikki Haley to Palestinians and the United Nations: 'I will not shut up'

The story should have made clear that this was quoting a speech by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the U.N. Security Council.

"We call for the convening of an worldwide peace conference in mid-2018, based on global law and relevant U.N. resolutions, with broad worldwide participation including the two concerned parties, and the regional and global stakeholders", Abbas said in a 30-minute-long speech to the U.N. Security Council.

At the same time, Delattre urged the United States to reconsider its recent decision to cut more than $100 million in assistance to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, which provides schooling, food, health care, and other essential services to more than 5 million Palestinian refugees.

The Palestinian leader landed at Baltimore-Washington International Airport on a Boeing 737 at 3:00 p.m. after a flight from White Plains, New York, according to the Flight Radar24 site.

Haley also said the Trump administration intends to follow through on its decision to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem despite opposition from the Palestinians. He left the chamber before US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spoke.

Abbas had angrily rejected a leading US role in brokering peace talks after Trump's December 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, but in his United Nations speech he called for convening a peace conference in mid-2018 with "broad worldwide participation" but one in which the "foremost" conveners were the five permanent members of the Security Council and the members of the Quartet, the four entities guiding Middle Eastern peacemaking.

Pakistan Claims Reprieve On Terror Financing List Tag, Review In 3 Months
A US motion to put Pakistan on a terrorist financing watch list has been deferred for three months, Pakistani officials said. Asif in a midnight tweet thanked "friends" who helped Pakistan avoid a major global embarrassment.

Haley said Palestinians should be reminded of the "path of negotiation and compromise", which she said has proved to be successful for Egypt and Jordan. Its focus has been nearly entirely on issues facing Israelis and Palestinians, and we have heard numerous same arguments and ideas over and over again.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is warning that the two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict "is being overtaken by a one-state reality which will have dire consequences for Israel in the long-term".

But gaps to bridge remained seemingly before peace talks could reconvene, as Haley had alluded to in her speech dismissing "old talking points and undeveloped concepts".

A Palestinian man died after a confrontation with Israeli troops in the West Bank on Thursday that the Palestinian Authority condemned as a "cold-blooded execution".

Yassin Omar al-Saradih, 33, ran at a soldier with an iron bar while the troops were conducting an operation in Jericho looking for wanted men, the Israel Defense Forces said. "The only way to move forward is to have direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians", he added.

In the interim, there should be an end to settlement activities by Israel and the United States should not move its embassy to Jerusalem, he said. The worldwide arena is the only arena he's comfortable engaging today, and even that is not a comprehensive strategy for statehood.
