USA increases military aid to Israel in the wake of Trump's visit

They're losers. And we'll have more of them.Israel occupied the West Bank, including east Jerusalem, in the Six-Day War of 1967.President Trump meets with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Washington has added tens of millions of dollars in extra defence aid for Israel, a day after US President Donald Trump wound up a visit. The likelihood of a revived peace process, let alone a successful one, is virtually nil. "No one is talking about it with us, or with anyone", Khalidi told The Times of Israel.

"The time has come to prove to the Israelis, the Palestinians and the entire world that an important segment of the Israeli population is opposed to occupation and wants a two-state solution", he added. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump's Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, set off a mini firestorm in Israel by referring to the Palestinian territories as "Palestine", a name that embodies Palestinian aspirations to statehood, and is not used by the U.S. government; the U.S. State Department then walked back Tillerson's comments.

Islamist gunmen who murdered at least 26 Christians traveling on a bus on Friday in central Egypt forced their victims.

It is unclear if the "pressure" exerted by Trump would resonate with Israeli leaders.

Marking the victory in the 1967 Battle of Jerusalem at the capital's military cemetery, Netanyahu added that while Israel greatly appreciates the USA assistance and support, "history has proven that Israel's security depends on our readiness and our ability to defend ourselves, by ourselves, against any threat".

Trump and Abbas discussed the prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians during a press conference in Bethlehem, and while Trump called for the resumption of peace talks, he notably stopped short of endorsing the idea of a Palestinian state.

"President Abbas noted that he was ready to begin negotiating (with Israel) immediately", the readout said.

Writing for the Atlantic (Trump Goes After "the Ultimate Deal"), Rosie Gray, has suggested that the pro-Israel camp inside the Trump Administration is made up of the new Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, Vice President Mike Pence, and - believe it or not - White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. The PA, however, does not recognize Israel as a Jewish state and has repeatedly refused to do so. Just a few hours after visiting the Western Wall, the background image of Trump's personal Twitter account was changed to feature a photo of the president with his hand on the Kotel.
