This BLOG publishes information we have gathered lately about the peace agreement. Former President Obama interrupted possibilities. Rita-Williams.com is where it began. We moved it all over here for more space. The information is too exciting not to publish.
On this blog each page has more than one subject which is impractical to index separately. The headings would not explain what is on the page appropriately. All accumulated information since President Trump is published here in order, beginning with # 1

Holy See: Peace is Possible in Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
2016-07-05 Vatican Radio
(Vatican Radio) The Permanent Observer to United Nations Archbishop Ivan Jurkovic has offered an intervention at the United Nations International Conference in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace.“The Holy See believes that the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians can move forward only if it is directly negotiated between the Parties,” Archbishop Jurkovic said, with the strong support of the international community, as this international conference is meant to catalyze.”He re-affirmed the Holy See’s support for a “two-state solution,” citing affirmations of Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.However, Archbishop Jurkovic said, “the Holy See also believes that the whole peace process does not depend solely on formal negotiations, no matter how indispensable these are.” He insisted, “Peace cannot be achieved if healing and reconciliation, mutual recognition and respect at the personal and communitarian levels do not accompany political solutions.”He also noted the importance of religions and believers in the peace process in the region: “They must put an end to mutual hatred that is lending credence to a ‘clash of civilizations’.” The Holy See, he said, “reiterates its appeal to all religious leaders to denounce and reject every spurious form and perversion of religion to foment violence, and to hold on to the conviction that peace is not only possible and desirable, but is our common call and duty.”Below, please find the full text of the Intervention of Archbishop Ivan Jurkovic, Head of the Delegation of the Holy See to the United Nations International Conference in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace:PEACE IS POSSIBLE – FRAMEWORKS FOR A WAY FORWARDGeneva, 29 June 2016Mr. Chair,The Holy See commends the United Nations Committee for the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People for organizing this conference to consider lessons learned from past Peace Conferences, build upon achievements, however modest they might have been, and identify new ideas in the emerging approaches, in order to provide an ever stronger international support to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.The Palestinian Question has been asked, and remains unsatisfactorily answered since the birth of the United Nations. Almost sixty-nine years after its adoption by the United Nations General Assembly, Resolution 181 remains only half-fulfilled. Decades of negotiations have failed to achieve the creation of a Palestinian State. Continued: http://www.news.va/en/news/holy-see-peace-is-possible-in-israeli-palestinian

Turkey Claims They Will Build The Third Temple July 12, 2016
Abbas Says Cairo Peace Summit only after Settlement FreezePalestinian preconditions include talks on basis of pre-1967 lines, set timetable; Netanyahu said open to meeting Abbas under Egyptian aegisBy Avi Issacharoff – July 13, 2016Palestinian leaders have presented several preconditions for participating in a trilateral Israeli-Egyptian-Palestinian peace summit in Cairo, including a freeze on Israeli settlement construction, a Palestinian official told The Times of Israel.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday reportedly told Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry he would be willing to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo for talks hosted by President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. The Prime Ministers Office did not deny the report by the Saudi-owned, pan-Arab news outlet Al-Arabiya. It said in a statement that whether the issue was discussed or not, Israel has always said it is prepared to conduct direct bilateral negotiations with no preconditions.The senior Palestinian official said Tuesday that Abbas had conditioned his participation on Israel agreeing to stop settlement construction and accepting a set timeline for negotiations. Israel would also have to acquiesce to negotiations based on the pre-1967 lines and pledge ahead of time to implement any agreements reached in the talks. A senior Egyptian official told The Times of Israel on Tuesday that Egypt was seeking a formula for renewal of negotiation that would be accepted by both sides. The official said it might be too early to invite both sides to a summit, since the sides did not yet agree about the goals of the talks.
