Palestinian dies in Israeli detention

Hamas preparing for 'post-Abbas era': Senior member

Speaking to the Hamas-run Al-Aqsa radio station, Osama Hamdan, the Hamas official responsible for global relations, also said that Mohamed Dahlan - a controversial Palestinian politician - "was not and will never be" Hamas' choice to succeed Mahmoud Abbas as Palestinian president. That view of the Middle East was decisively repudiated this week, with Trump clearly aligning the United States with the majority of the Sunni Arab world, and Israel, against Iran. The Palestinians want the eastern part of the city as the capital of a future independent state of their own that would include the West Bank and Gaza. Other than the new Middle East regional environment, there is little to suggest that myriad obstacles that have prevented a bilateral peace agreement between Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian President Abbas before can now be overcome, particularly pursued the same tried and tested way through direct bilateral negotiations.

The Palestinian leader immediately left the council chamber following his address, leading Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon to complain that Abbas was "running away" from dialogue. But we will not chase after you.

It was only Abbas' second appearance before the Security Council, after a 2011 visit in which he advocated Palestinian statehood.

"These are the worst prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians for years", he said, adding that he didn't think that Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's Prime Minister, "has any intention" of making progress towards the goal, the thrust of global efforts for decades, of the creation of a separate state for the Palestinians alongside Israel. Israel captured the territory in the 1967 Middle East war.

Abbas said the principle of two-states living side-by-side with full sovereignty must be preserved, but he said the US has not clarified whether it is for a two-state or a one-state solution. There is the path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence.

7th-grader shoots himself at OH school
Mom said she immediately called the police and found out that the lockdown at the school was very real. The woman, Lisa Oswald, told WJW she's scared and sad for her son, who is in the sixth grade.

"Mr. Abbas, you have made it clear with your words and with your actions that you are no longer part of the solution", he said.

Haley minced no words in responding to the Palestinian leader.

She also said that the United States would not change its decision to move the nation's embassy to Jerusalem from Israel and the matter had already been discussed.

Equatorial Guinea's U.N. Ambassador Anatolio Ndong Mba called the fact that they came to the council "very, very important" and "a good sign".

Abbas also lashed out at United States threats to close the Palestinian Liberation Organization office in Washington and the decision to cut to U.S. funding of UNRWA, the UN agency that aids Palestinian refugees.
