"Right now, I would say the Palestinians are not looking to make peace, they are not looking to make peace".

Asked by editor-in-chief Boaz Bismouth when the U.S. would present its peace plan, Mr Trump said: "We will see what happens".

Akram Atallah, a political analyst and writer for Al-Ayyam newspaper, told Al-Monitor that details of the U.S. plan are being leaked many times over and that we are learning that the Palestinian people oppose such a plan, and how the Arab and global world is reacting to it.

He told the free daily Israel Hayom newspaper in an interview Sunday, "You are going to see". The Trump White House has been less publicly critical of Israel's settlement building than previous administrations. He added that the settlements "always have complicated making peace, so I think Israel has to be very careful with the settlements".

Last month the United Nations expressed concern at a USA decision to withhold more than half of a tranche of funding for an agency that supports Palestinian refugees. Morales was honored during the meal, attended by about 200 people, for his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

On Dec. 6, President Donald Trump reversed decades of American foreign policy and formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "He was more serious, more thoughtful, considering my questions before firing back, and also more inquisitive, asking me far more questions for a change", the editor wrote. "It was a very important pledge that I made and I fulfilled my pledge", he said. "Not only is Jerusalem obviously and objectively the capital of the state of Israel since its creation over 60 years ago but it is the ancient capital of the Jewish peoples", Kenney said. I have been thanked and in some cases not thanked, to be 100 percent honest about it. In the interview, Trump criticized Israel's West Bank settlements, which the Palestinians and most of the global community view as illegal obstacles to peace.

When asked about the meaning of his statement in Davos that the Jerusalem issue had been taken "off the table", Trump said, "By taking Jerusalem off the table I wanted to make it clear that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and as for specific boundaries would support what both sides agreed to".
