AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordan’s King Abdullah on Sunday met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and both leaders set high hopes that U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will revive peace talks over a two-state solution to the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict, officials said. FILE PHOTO: Jordan's King Abdullah II speaks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during the group photo with Arab leaders, ahead of the 30th Arab Summit in Tunis, Tunisia March 31, 2019. “His Majesty stressed Jordan stood with all its resources alongside Palestinians in achieving their legitimate rights to set up an independent state,” the monarch was quoted as saying in the statement. Trump’s peace plan was also seen as posing an existentialist threat to Jordan with the demise of a Palestinian state through the annexation of large parts of the West Bank pushing the kingdom to become an alternative state for Palestinians. In another joint communique with Abbas, both leaders said Israel “attempts to impose new realities” by annexing and accelerating settlement building in occupied Palestinian territory.

President Donald Trump is enacting new rules, regulations, and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign-policy matters. WASHINGTON (AP) — On its way out the door, the Trump administration is enacting new rules, regulations and orders that it hopes will box in President-elect Joe Biden's administration on numerous foreign policy matters and cement President Donald Trump's "America First" legacy in international affairs. Last week, the State Department's policy planning office released a 70-page China policy strategy document. The Trump administration had said it wasn't interested in extending the New START treaty unless China also joined, something Beijing has rejected. As the transition to the Biden administration approaches, those negotiations remain a work in progress.

World Bank warns G20 against doing too little to tackle debt problems

FILE PHOTO: A participant stands near a logo of World Bank at the International Monetary Fund - World Bank Annual Meeting 2018 in Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia, October 12, 2018. “Debt reduction and transparency will enable productive investment, a key to achieving an earlier, stronger and more lasting recovery,” Malpass told G20 leaders during a videoconference meeting. Some countries, including China, have remained reluctant to embrace the need for debt cancellation, although top economists say that will likely be needed in some cases. Private sector creditors have also failed to join in, despite repeated calls by G20 leaders, civil society groups and the United Nations. In Sudan, he said he was hopeful that arrears clearance could move quickly, especially given the inflow of refugees from neighboring Ethiopia, which would allow substantial World Bank funding to begin flowing almost immediately.

PSAGOT, West Bank — It would have been out of the question under any other U.S. administration. Israel seized the West Bank from Jordan in its 1967 war with its Arab neighbors. Days after the European ruling however, Pompeo announced that the U.S. was reversing its decadeslong policy that Israeli settlements in the West Bank are illegal.

Pompeo became the first U.S. secretary of state to visit an Israeli West Bank settlement and the Golan Heights. Palestinians and Arab states said the move would help cement Israeli control over occupied territory. Syria called on the international community and the U.N to condemn the “provocative” visit, which it said violated international resolutions, a government source was quoted on state media as saying.

America’s top diplomat Mike Pompeo made history Thursday becoming the first secretary of state and highest ranking U.S. official to visit an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank. He also made a stop at Qasr al-Yahud, the traditional site of the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan Valley, according to a State Department official. A demonstrator holds a Palestinian flag during a protest against Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit, near the Israeli settlement of Psagot in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday. Pompeo maintains he was acting in his “personal capacity,” when delivering the speech and he received approval from the State Department legal office, despite having flown to Israel for an official visit as secretary of state. It was the first resolution criticizing Israeli settlements to be passed by the U.N. body in almost 40 years.

Before heading to the West Bank, Pompeo met Netanyahu, who praised Trump for recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and Israeli sovereignty over the Golan, which Israel annexed in 1981 in a move few countries have accepted. U.S.-based Human Rights Watch said Pompeo had falsely equated peaceful support for boycotts of Israel with antisemitism.

SHAAR BINYAMIN, West Bank (Reuters) - Mike Pompeo on Thursday became the first U.S. secretary of state to visit an Israeli West Bank settlement and the Golan Heights, in a show of solidarity that led Palestinians to accuse him of helping to cement Israeli control over occupied territory. Slideshow ( 5 images )On Thursday morning Pompeo appeared alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said both Pompeo and Trump were long-standing friends of Israel. WEST BANKBut first Pompeo travelled the short distance from Jerusalem to the Israeli-occupied West Bank - known to most Israelis as Judea and Samaria - where more than 440,000 Jewish settlers live uneasily among three million Palestinians, mostly in fortified hilltop settlements. Under EU guidelines farm and other products made in Israeli settlements and exported to EU member countries should be clearly labeled as coming from the settlements, which the bloc considers illegal under international law. That Israel has it right,” Pompeo said from a hilltop looking into an area of the Syrian Golan that was until recently controlled by militias fighting the Syrian civil war.

This was underscored by the death last week of Saeb Erekat, the Palestine Liberation Organization's chief peace negotiator. Erekat had become the embodiment of the Palestinian commitment to a stage-by-stage process in which an independent Palestinian state would emerge to live in peace alongside the Jewish state of Israel. The author of that approach on the Palestinian side was Mahmoud Abbas, now head of the Palestinian Authority. Palestinians were first granted self-rule in Gaza and Jericho, and that autonomy was then extended to 40 percent of the West Bank while final-status negotiations took place. Israelis will then have to rethink whether they prefer expanding settlements and holding on to West Bank territory over normalization with such important Arab states as Saudi Arabia and Morocco.

Expect him to pardon his criminal allies, make political appointees into career government officials, and issue a slew of executive orders.

A long-serving member of the nationalist party Fatah, Erekat was secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization and a confidant and adviser to its former leader Yasser Arafat and his successor, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Erekat led the Palestinians in peace talks with Israel for many years until negotiations collapsed in 2014. In Ramallah, a procession of Palestinian security officers carried Erekat’s coffin through an outdoor plaza in Abbas’s presidential compound. A large crowd gathered outside Erekat’s Jericho home as his coffin was carried inside and his family privately bade him farewell. Security officers fired a rifle salute as a prayer was recited over the grave.

His funeral is expected to be held on Wednesday in the West Bank city of Jericho. He left the West Bank in the 1970s to go to college. Asked a year before his death if there was a danger of the middle ground of Palestinian politics disappearing, Erekat told Reuters: “It’s happening.

Saeb Erekat, a veteran peace negotiator and prominent international spokesman for the Palestinians for more than three decades, died on Tuesday, weeks after being infected by the coronavirus. The American-educated Erekat was involved in nearly every round of peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians going back to the landmark Madrid conference in 1991. Abbas and members of his inner circle, including Erekat, found themselves internationally sidelined and deeply unpopular among Palestinians. He spent most of his life in the occupied West Bank town of Jericho, a palm-studded desert oasis about 30 minutes from Jerusalem. Then, as now, the Palestinians sought an independent state in east Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

New measures could include a broader shutdown of nonessential businesses if the citywide seven-day average rate of positive virus test results climbs, and stays, above 3 percent. Ben Carson, the secretary of housing and urban development, has tested positive for the coronavirus, a spokesman said on Monday. Two days before, a Cambodian bodyguard who had protected the Hungarian foreign minister during his trip also tested positive. People who have a trip coming up should get a coronavirus test before they travel, experts say.

Most immediately, analysts and officials said, Israel will feel the transition to a Biden administration as a shift of focus away from the conflict with the Palestinians. Mr. Biden has spoken of showing Tehran a “path back to diplomacy,” offering to re-enter the Obama administration’s nuclear deal if Iran returns to strict compliance. Mr. Netanyahu crusaded against the agreement and cheered Mr. Trump’s withdrawal from it. In contrast to Mr. Trump’s favoritism toward Israel, Mr. Biden has promised a return to a more balanced approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Still, Mr. Biden is under few illusions, his advisers say, that a settlement is achievable with Mr. Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas, the longtime Palestinian president, still in their jobs.

LONDON — Tim Berners-Lee, the English computer scientist best known as the inventor of the world wide web, has revealed that his latest start-up has launched a privacy platform for enterprises. The U.K.'s National Health Service, the BBC, NatWest Bank and the Flanders Government are among its early adopters. The start-up announced Monday that it had launched an enterprise version of its Solid platform. Berners-Lee invented the world wide web in 1989 but has become increasingly concerned that today's digital giants are exploiting citizens around the world. Berners-Lee added that "Solid changes the current model where users have to hand over personal data to digital giants in exchange for perceived value."

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - “God Bless You Donald and Melania” read the poster hanging over an Israeli highway during the U.S. election campaign. But Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had an especially close public relationship. Palestinians had no political contacts with Trump for most of his presidency. The animosity between Trump and the Palestinian leadership made him a target of protest art. “Dear Slim, I wrote you but you still ain’t calling,” wrote one graffiti artist, channeling U.S. rapper Eminem, above a Trump portrait in Bethlehem.

RAMALLAH (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday congratulated U.S. President-elect Joe Biden in a statement that indicated he will drop his three-year political boycott of the White House. FILE PHOTO: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas prepares to speak during a news conference with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (not seen) at the Grand Hyatt hotel in New York, U.S., February 11, 2020. Abbas’s boycott was popular among Palestinians, who celebrated Trump’s defeat on Sunday on the streets. “When Biden announces that this is going to change - and he announced that during his election campaign - there will be no reason for the boycott,” he said. Gaza political analyst Hani Habib said the Biden win would encourage Abbas to re-engage in negotiations with Israel, a move the international community has long called for.
