Kerry to attend Mideast peace conference in Paris

However, this is not the case.

But other foreign policy officials in a Trump administration, like Secretary of State-designee Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense pick James Mattis, may caution against it, said Ilan Goldenberg, senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security who formerly worked for the State Department on Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Nevertheless, the global community will once again try to force the two parties to meet and hash out their differences in yet more negotiations this year, starting with the January 15 Paris peace conference. Holding the territory between the borders established after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and those drawn after 1967's Six-Day War is part of Israel's defensive strategy.

"Israel has to be punished for not accepting the global resolutions and for not accepting the UN Security Council".

"Forces called on the attacker to halt and upon his continued advance fired towards him, resulting in his death", the military said in a statement.

Nail-biting 5-4 outdoor victory for Leafs over Red Wings
On a day that kicked off a celebration of 100 years of NHL history, the hockey community got one hell of a look at its future. The rookie was a difference-maker every time he touched the puck, adding a goal in a key spot in the first period.

Kerry said the United Nations resolution was not a sign of diminished USA support for Israel but he defended his government's decision to allow the resolution to be adopted and criticised Israel for moving away from the two-state goal.

It seems completely hypocritical that McCully and the New Zealand Government with its record relating to its own indigenous population, would even contemplate a resolution such as this. Evidence such as archaeological sites and artefacts have proved the historical connection of the Jews to the land and a solid claim to being the indigenous people of that area.

Israel is protesting the Paris summit and has warned its attendees against setting out parameters for a two-state solution.

Palestinian leaders Tuesday called for prayers at mosques across the Middle East this week to protest plans by President-elect Donald Trump to move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and also threatened to withdraw the Palestinian recognition of Israel if the move is realized. During these summits, the parties came closer to a final status agreement than ever before or since. It paved the way for the establishment of the Palestinian autonomy government in parts of the West Bank, and ending it would put the financial burden of providing services of some 2.3 million Palestinians on Israel. However, Arafat turned it all down. We need to support the Palestinian people's right to self-determination and to stop Israel from becoming an apartheid state. The Oslo Accords signed by Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in the early 1990's specified that control of Jerusalem be determined only after the two sides reach a the final peace agreement.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called the United Nations resolution a "slap in the face" for Israel and an expression of global support for a two-state solution.
