Trump reiterates neutrality on two-state solution, but says he 'likes' it

Trump reiterates neutrality on two-state solution, but says he 'likes' it

"We call on all artists and academics not to become an accessory to Israel's attempts at rebranding".

What's wrong with this picture when it comes to the resolving Israel's conflict with the Palestinians?

For the most part, the week went well.

One of the protesters, Naama Carlin, told Junkee the action was about "opposition to Israel's policies about Palestinians, and in general it was also to express communal dissent: he [Netanyahu] spoke to the Jewish community in a closed, invite-only event, so it was important for us to show that not all Jews were represented in that meeting". On Friday, however, as I approached the booth after finishing class, I saw that my poster had been torn up. What should anyone who cares deeply about the remarkable achievement of renewed Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel and wants to protect it from those who would destroy it do? But it's also a sign of growing dissent. Moreover, Jews worldwide were drawn to more to secular ideologies such as socialism and communism than Zionism's ethnic nationalism, though there were many Labor Zionists, especially among the leadership, who adhered to both Zionism and socialism. No one understands this reality better than the people who live in this contested city. I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two.

"Both seem dangerously out of touch with how their policies impact people, and seem to be driven by a desire for power rather than social justice", she said. I noticed that the fear I felt when visiting my brother's Jerusalem apartment during a streak of Palestinian terrorism was similar to the fear of Bedouins I met in the Negev desert, living under the threat of home demolition.

"If I did the schlep, they should do it too". Most importantly, though, I learned that I was not the only one to feel caught in the middle.

"There are a number of Australian businessmen and women who are investing in innovative technology-based industries between Israel and Australia", Mr Turnbull said at the start of the ministerial meetings, which included Treasurer Scott Morrison, Defence Minister Marise Payne, Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce.

The second issue that stood out in the press conference was on the question of Israeli settlements. What if you not only want peace for yourself, but peace for your neighbors, as well?

Since then, Cardoza-Moore has pushed for similar resolutions in other states.

Hebron has been at the centre of a wave of deadly unrest since October 2015 that has killed 252 Palestinians, 36 Israelis, two United States nationals, a Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese, according to an AFP count.

Desmond Tutu, among the earliest leading figures to endorse BDS, once wrote in the context of supporting a BDS-related campaign: "As South Africans, we recognize institutionalised racism when we see it".

"We need to draw clear lines and be clear about where we stand", he said. Israel has also escalated its forced displacements of Palestinian communities in the Naqab (Negev), Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, drawing condemnation from across the world.

Successive US administrations have said that they can not want peace more than the parties, but such idea played into the hands of the powerful Israeli occupiers.
