The person received’t even decide up the cellphone to U.S. President Donald Trump. Abbas, Benn requested, why don’t you announce your willingness “to renew peace talks with Israel on the idea of the ‘deal of the century,’” and thwart the annexation Israel plans to impose unilaterally on July 1?

Benn additionally criticized the Israeli left, which, within the title of honor, justifies Palestinian “indifference and intransigence.” Take a look at how, following the wave of desertions to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s authorities, the phrase “honor” has turn out to be an insult, whereas the person who rides roughshod over his rules based mostly on how the wind is blowing is a king. Somebody must whisper to the editor of Haaretz that Abbas is just not Deputy Prime Minister and Kahol Lavan Chairman Benny Gantz – not due to hole honor, however quite due to the appalling actuality.
