UNITED NATIONS – President Trump’s middle East envoy, suggested on Tuesday in the security Council of the United Nations on the handling of the peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians, taking aim at what he called “the constant drumbeat of tired rhetoric that is designed to prevent progress and bypass direct negotiations. It’s time to retire the rhetoric.”

The messengers, Jason Greenblatt, pointed out that the Israelis and the Palestinians to agree to a final peace solution.

He requested them to accept the members, fresh thinking. “Peace requires honesty and a willingness to embrace new ideas, as well as courage, and some hard compromises. This is for us a time to talk to each other openly, not in outdated slogans and talking points.”

Greenblatt told the Council that while trump was still willing to announce, the political part of his plan for middle East peace, he said, “we hope that We make this decision soon.”

Raising of the eyebrows, from the chamber, he took a jab at the numerous resolutions that had been forwarded to the Council of Israel, saying, the administration, the vision for peace would not be unique.

“This conflict is not solved by the constant references to the hundreds of U. N. resolutions on the issue. The constant reference to this strong, intentionally ambiguous resolutions formulated nothing more than a coat is negotiated in order to avoid the substantive debate on the realities on the ground and the complexity of the conflict.”

Greenblatt continued, “I urge you all judgment until we publish, and read, the 60-or-so pages, which could, in detail, appearance, peace.”keep

He said that the Palestinian claims on East Jerusalem is represented as its capital, a quest, a right. “Efforts at the negotiating table, and only direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, the Problem of Jerusalem can solve, if it can be resolved.”


Greenblatt made it clear that a solution cannot be found. “It will not be solved, in this chamber, this institution, or in any other capital city around the world.”

He continued, “Many would rather rail against the supposed evils of what they characterize as routine reputation of being an “illegal occupation”, as a constructive attitude to the disputes that the conflict today. This is not a productive dialogue.”


Still, Greenblatt is a conflict that is resolved, the world wanted to be recognized, both sides have to resolve compromises. He used the administration’s latest economic plan, seeking to raise $50 billion for the reconstruction of the Palestinian and neighboring countries as a model as what could be if the pages on a final peace agreement.

“We all want this solved conflict,” he said. “We all want to help those who want to wear more, the unbearable weight of this conflict, whether Palestinians, Israelis, or of their many friends and neighbors in the region.”

He continued, “that’s why we start with the realization that there are no shortcuts, and fictions of international consensus, international legitimacy, the arguments about who is right and who is wrong, as a matter of international law, and aspirations, expressed as rights, the peace reach… a solution is not forced on the parties.”


Greenblatt comments rankled other countries in the security Council, which would be important partners in any Mideast peace plan. Several of the Ambassador insisted that it reach an international consensus for the Palestinians, the independence, the peace negotiations.

“It is the United States, the international consensus has said,” the German Ambassador, Christoph Heusgen.

Heusgen also Greenblatt has been criticized for his dismissive comments on the U. N. resolutions, namely, the United States has insisted, the world, the adherence to the resolutions of the security Council on other conflicts in the world, such as the North Korean nuclear impasse.


“For us international law a la carte menu,” Heusgen said.

His comments were also the ambassadors of Britain, France, Belgium and Poland.
