Israel, US to form team to tackle settlements

Kerry offered a regional Arab recognition of Israel as a Jewish state - a key demand of Netanyahu - with a resumption of the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians with the support of Arab countries.

Kerry's upgraded initiative would make Jerusalem the capital of two states and called on Israel to turn over the entire West Bank to the Palestinians in exchange for recognition of Israel as a Jewish state.

Over the years, many and probably most Israelis have come around to the idea of a partition largely because they want to be considered a democracy and do not want all the Palestinian future citizens that would come along with the territory.

"Jewish children in Kazakhstan were singing Hebrew songs as they sang here, in a Muslim state and that reflects the kind of world we like to see: a world of tolerance, a world of diversity as opposed to the world that is being challenged today by the forces of barbarism and intolerance", he said.

Many observers, including Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog, bemoaned the "magnitude of the missed opportunity", to create lasting peace.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with his counterpart in Singapore, during the first visit to the country by an Israeli prime minister.

The worldwide community has repeatedly introduced the chimera of the two-state solution, but for most of their histories the two sides favoured a single state - if for different reasons.

In a time of deep and intractable conflicts in the Middle East, Israeli and Palestinian leaders "should return to the negotiating table and work towards a solution that upholds the rights of both peoples to live side by side in peace and security", he wrote.

Given the huge asymmetry of power, Israel now has a free hand to entrench its existing apartheid version of the one-state solution - Greater Israel - on the Palestinians.

"I intend to build a tent on my land and live there", he said.

In a statement on Monday, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said, "I am looking forward, with Lucy, to welcoming the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his wife, Mrs Sara Netanyahu, to Australia". Perhaps. Netanyahu Also noted, "I asked, Prime Minister, to visit one of your housing sites because this is an issue that you have resolved in your own way". For nearly two decades, USA policy has been to advocate a two-State solution.

Negotiations may be at a standstill and, with expansion of the settlements, a two-state solution may be in dire straits.

However, what Trump has said so far would "harm the interests of both Palestine and Jordan", Maaytah added.

There are some things that everyone seems to have an opinion about - like the weather and the two-state solution. The liberal democratic Israeli one-staters would like to use the one-state solution to ensure that Israel remains democratic and Jewish even if and when that happens.

"Members of the House will be absolutely clear that sooner or later - and I hope sooner rather than later - there will be a deal and there will be an understanding that involves land swaps and as you rightly say we will have to show some sense when it comes to doing that deal".
