The United States decided to reopen its consulate in Jerusalem to contact the Palestinian Authority

30

The Israeli press publishes some details of the visit of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to Israel. During his visit, Blinken met with a range of Israeli government officials, including Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The main topic of the conversation concerned the issues of the recent active phase of the armed confrontation between Israel and Hamas, as well as the direct settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.


Israeli media write that the US Secretary of State, during negotiations with Netanyahu, announced Washington's intention to fully restore diplomatic contacts with Palestine, for which to resume the work of the American consulate in Jerusalem.

Recall that earlier the United States (Donald Trump's administration) moved its embassy to Jerusalem, which led to numerous protests by the Palestinians. At the same time, Trump reassigned the American Jerusalem consulate to the American embassy in Israel, which virtually nullified diplomatic contacts with the Palestinian Authority.

According to Blinken, the restoration of the work of the consulate responsible for contacts with Palestine will contribute to the normalization of relations both between the Palestinian Authority and the United States, and throughout the Middle East.

The Israeli press reports that the initiative of the Biden administration, which was voiced by Blinken, "caused a cold reaction from Prime Minister Netanyahu." At the same time, it is added that Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi expressed support for the initiative to restore the work of the American consulate in Jerusalem.

In addition, it is reported that Blinken called on the Israeli side to make a number of concessions for the residents of the Gaza Strip, as well as to participate in the restoration of the areas of Gaza, which were bombed by the IDF.

After that, the US Secretary of State visited the city of Ramallah, where he met with the head of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas.



He (represented by the Palestinian people) on behalf of the United States, he promised the allocation of financial assistance in the amount of $ 23 million.

      Yes, you can offer anything, but I have no doubt that Israel will not give a single shekel for "restoration". And it will do the right thing in general.

        If in a brazen proposal to restore Palestine, the Jews will work again. First, the military-industrial complex has started working, and now guest workers at Israeli construction firms. I have never seen a concrete worker of this nation in my entire life. Bryuliki, gold is theirs, but not concrete.

          I don’t know about concrete workers, but shoemakers and seamstresses — in bulk. Excellent craftsmen and hard workers, what to look for. I'm not talking about musicians. But this is also a lot of work. By the way, for a concert of classical music, each musician of a symphony orchestra loses as much energy as a miner does for a shift in the face.

          I have seen. My former boss, chief specialist, arrived in Israel and went to work as a concrete worker at a plant. This was in a letter he wrote to a mutual friend. Soon after this news, I myself left, and the connection was lost. I don’t think he’s still alive, too much time has passed.
          And before leaving, he and I (I was the leading engineer in his group) designed many concrete forms and means of mechanizing production processes at the reinforced concrete products plant. Tellingly, almost all of our projects went to the metal, although several quite promising projects fell on the shelf - alas, with the introduction of perestroika, self-financing, and why else the plant stupidly did not have the money to order this equipment.

        See what Israel looks like and what Gaza looks like and see who won. The economic damage from missile hits and civilian deaths is much higher than the cost of the Iron Dome interceptor

        During Operation Wall Sentinel, an urgent order for ZhK missiles, worth 250 million dollars, was executed in the United States and delivered to Israel.

    "Crazy money". For 23 million it is possible to restore only a couple of destroyed buildings. Has the US printing press started to fail?

      Alas, they didn’t ask me. And if asked, I would say that this - not a cent. They themselves played out with their missiles, they themselves asked for a response from Israel, let them deal with the consequences themselves. Well, or let them ask their fellows in Allah. But they only throw them on missiles, to "fight the Zionist aggressor", and they get them mainly from the infidels in America and Europe at power plants and sewers.

        At the same time, as I understand it, they end up spending this, too, on "resistance", that is, on banal terror. Well, of course they don't forget their pocket, I have no doubt about that. Otherwise, I think, on those huge sums that they receive from Europe, the United States and through the UN, not counting the Arab sponsors, could arrange a second Dubai for themselves.

          Yes, that's bullshit - Hamas does not know how to deal with municipal and economic issues. Its very raison d'être is jihad. Yes, and launching a rocket at the "Zionist enemy" looks much more spectacular than cleaning a sewer. And if they focus exclusively on sewerage, water supply, and roads, there is a risk that in the next elections, voters will vote for those who know more about these issues. And sponsors from Arab and Muslim countries are not at all as willing to give for municipal needs as for the fight against the "Zionist enemy." But in their own pocket they skim the cream from sponsorship funds, so how not to meet sponsors halfway?

          After WW2, 50 million refugees roamed the devastated and devastated Europe. Within a few years, the Marshall Plan lifted Europe from ruins, provided shelter and shelter to all refugees, fed, watered and gave work.
          World sponsors, including the USSR and the Russian Federation, have already invested 4 (four!) Marshal Plans in the "Palestinians" ... Do you know how much Dubaev is?

        It is very straightforward and shortsighted, if Hamas ceases to exist, then one of the strong threads of the State Department will break to keep Israel in its channel, so denyuzhka on both sides of the front under plausible pretexts! This is how the Democrats of the Republicans and their supporters, tactically and strategically, that is, with a reserve for the future, seem to be chpokayut now in the USA!

          Israel is already in the hands of the State Department thanks to duty-free trade with the States and free access to the vast majority of American technologies. And even then, thanks to the pro-Israel lobby of the United States, he is far from being in solidarity with Washington on all issues. laughing

                  I beg you - in Russia, about 20% of the population are Muslims (by no means all are anti-Israelis, but the majority naturally sympathize with co-religionists), the Russian Federation has more joint projects in the economy and defense industry with the Islamic world than with the entire West combined ( I'm not talking about "energy flows", although the development of a common energy policy with Arab / Muslim countries is also important for Russia), therefore all anti-Israeli resolutions will be supported by Russian representatives in the UN. Considering these factors, support on both shoulders will not work. It is another matter that the Americans do not perceive Israel's warm relations with Russia as something critical - as long as the pro-Israel lobby is operating in the United States, they do not care.

      The machine is all right. It's just that the staff understands very well that no one and nowhere will even restore a rotten fence with this money. Destruction in Gaza by Hamas scorpions, and money will go to Ramallah to the spiders of Fatah.
      Every last penny, as usual, will end up in the bottomless pockets of the "Palestinian Authority."
      It's true, if this money gets to Gaza, the Hamas will again start digging their tunnels and build bunkers for rocket launchers. Nobody will restore anything to the residents. Although, they can also build new houses for the top management, instead of blown up ones. Although, it will not be enough. The appetites of those there were filled with wow. hi

    Not surprising. A friend and ally not only offers to participate in the restoration of the destroyed, but also negotiates with those whom Israel tried to raze to the ground. It's a shame, yeah ...

    Netanyahu differs from Blinken in that he knows too well who he has to deal with.
    Only now, the "Palestinians" will raise the entrance. They will scream, they say here it is - a real apartheid! As for the Jews, so the embassy, ​​but as for us, some kind of consulate there!
