Trump accuses Palestinian leaders of inciting violence
President Donald Trump during a joint appearance with the Palestinian at the White House called on Palestinian leaders to embrace lasting peace by serving as angel and messengers of love rather than inciting and promoting Israeli-violence.
“There could be no lasting peace unless the Palestinian leaders speak in a unified voice against incitement to violence and hate. There’s such hatred, but hopefully, there won’t be such hatred for very long. All children of God must be taught to value and respect human life and condemn all of those who target the innocent,

There’s such hatred, but hopefully, there won’t be such hatred for very long. All children of God must be taught to value and respect human life and condemn all of those who target the innocent,” President Trump said.
He further commended President Abbas for his initiation of peace deal between the two warring nations during the era of Yitzhak Rabin.
“It was on these grounds that President Abbas stood with a courageous peacemaker, then-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. Here at the White House, President Abbas signed a declaration of principles, very important, which laid the foundation for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians,” Mr Trump said.
Mr Abbas in his remarks emphasized on the bone of contention and therefore set parameters for a deal that he believes would lead to bringing lasting solution to the major crisis in the middle east.
“Our strategic choice is to bring about peace based on the vision of the two-state …, a Palestinian state with its capital of East Jerusalem that lives in peace and stability with the state of Israel based on the border of 1967,” he said, referring to the borders before the Arab-Israeli war that year.
He further clarified that rise of radical Islamic sects such as ISIS and the likes have nothing to do with the religion of Islam.
The Palestinian leader thereafter praised Mr Trump’s reputation as a deal-maker, saying that would be a benefit in their talks with the Israelis.
“I look much forward to working with you in order to come to that historical agreement, historic deal to bring about peace,” Mr Abbas replied, speaking through a translator. I believe that we are capable under your leadership and your stewardship and your wisdom as well your great negotiating ability, I believe with the grace of God and with all of your effort, we believe that we can be partners, true partners to you to bring about a historic peace treaty,” he said.
He then promised to continue to be actively involved in any peace negotiation that could bring lasting and harmony to the region.
“We will get it done. We will be working so hard to get it done. It’s been a long time. But we will be working diligently,” Mr Trump said.
