Why Are We Still Offering Aid to Palestinians Who Don't Want Peace?

A prominent Palestinian leader showed outrage on Wednesday over the threat of US President Donald Trump to cut funding to the Palestinians, calling his tweets "blackmail".

Trump added more fuel to the fire on Twitter by saying that the U.S. pays "hundreds of millions dollars a year" to the Palestinians and that Jerusalem, "the toughest part of the negotiation", is "off the table".

Trump has previously said he wants to relaunch frozen peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians in search of the "ultimate deal".

Egypt's foreign ministry on Thursday announced that Israel's amendments to a law making it more hard to relinquish control over parts of Jerusalem in any further peace deal with the Palestinians is illegitimate.

The peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians are going nowhere, President Trump reiterated on Twitter Tuesday night.

However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as a capital of its future state.

"The President has basically said he doesn't want to give any additional funding, or stop funding, until the Palestinians agree to come back to the negotiation table", Ms Haley said. Notably, the relations between the Palestinians and Trump's White House were already tense after the USA president's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital last month.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has strongly condemned a vote by Israel's ruling Likud party in support of annexing large parts of the occupied West Bank and criticised the United States for its silence.

"Palestinian officials and other critics warned Mr Trump's move squandered American credibility as a neutral mediator, undercutting the prospect of a peace settlement".

"For all these nations, they take our money and then vote against us. And we want to move forward with the peace process". We must say things as they are and restore a sane discourse to the entire world.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump was threatening all of the budget, worth $319 million in 2016, according to USA government figures. "We're not giving the aid", Haley added. As of now they are not coming to the table but they asked for aid.

The minister said that such measures would undermine the two-state solution, which is the only formula to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
