Lebanese website reveals details of Israeli-Saudi peace deal

By: Yona Schnitzer/TPS

According to a Lebanese website, regional peace deal includes settling Palestinians outside Israel, no annexation of Jerusalem and Saudi/Israeli cooperation against Iran.

A secret correspondence between the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman reveals the draft of a possible peace deal between Saudi Arabia and Israel, the Lebanese website Al-Akhbar claimed Tuesday.

Al-Akhbar posted what it said was the full text of the document which lists five basic principles supposedly agreed upon between Israel and Saudi Arabia, which would constitute the framework for a regional agreement and the end of the Arab Israeli conflict.

The five principles are:
  • Jerusalem – “The Annexation of Jerusalem to international sovereignty as per the 1937 and 1947 partition plans – two international agreements which have recommended that the city not be annexed to either the Arab or Jewish entities.”
  • Palestinian Refugees – “Saudi Arabia affirms its aspiration to settle Palestinian refugees in their countries of residence. The Kingdom can contribute to this effort by supporting innovative solutions such as cancelling the Arab League’s decision from the 1950s by which no Arab nation is to settle Palestinian refugees within their borders, as well as divert efforts to the redistribution and settlement of Palestinian refugees throughout the Arab states.”
  • American Mediation and Agreed Upon Principles – “The United States and Saudi Arabia will reach agreements regarding the main principles for ending the conflict, after which President Trump would summon the foreign ministers of the region to a summit in order to obtain their agreements, and only after all have agreed to the same basic principals, would the actual negotiations begin.”

Appeals Court Upholds Ruling Letting Arkansas Block Medicaid Funding from Planned Parenthood A federal appeals court upheld a three-judge panel’s ruling Monday that Arkansas can cut off Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request, brought by three Planned Parenthood Great Plains patients, to reconsider the August decision which vacated an injunction preventing Arkansas from stopping Medicaid payments to the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) decided to end the state’s Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood in 2015 following the release of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress which showed the abortion group’s alleged trafficking in unborn baby body parts.

"It is important for the state to have the clear authority to terminate Medicaid providers who act in unethical ways and in violation of state policy," Gov. Hutchinson said in a statement. "The decision early on to terminate Planned Parenthood as a provider was the right decision, and I am delighted with the decision of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in affirming the right of the State to take this action."

Judd Deere, a spokesman for Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, supported Monday's ruling in a statement to Arkansas Online.

U.N. Plans Nine More Anti-Israel Resolutions
  The U.N. General Assembly is poised to name the territory of east Jerusalem as an “occupied” region — the first in a slew of new anti-Israel resolutions the global body is expected to bring forward in the coming weeks.

In fact, there are nine — nine new resolutions the global body will mull that share the common denominator of being anti-Israel in tone and scope.

Once again, the United Nations is showing its anti-Israel bias.

Breitbart has more:
The Jerusalem Post reports: Next month, the UN General Assembly is expected to affirm east Jerusalem’s status as “occupied territory,” call for international companies to boycott Israel and condemn Israel’s presence on the Golan Heights.
Nine drafted texts, of what will likely be a slate of 20 anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian resolutions, were overwhelmingly affirmed Friday in New York at a meeting of the Fourth Committee – also known as the Special Political and Decolonization Committee – which is made up of the 193 UN member states.
And as The Jerusalem Post reports, the United States is not happy.
