  • On last day in Israel, Pence visits Western Wall, Yad Vashem

King Abdullah II of Jordan reflected on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the World Economic Forum in response to recent circumstances and announcements such as the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the plan to move the American embassy to the city.

US Vice President Mike Pence visits the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest prayer site, in Jerusalem's Old City January 23, 2018.

Mr Trump said United States aid to the Palestinians is "on the table" but they won't get it "unless they sit down and negotiate peace".

Seidemann says Pence "saw nothing of Palestinian Jerusalem" on his trip and even managed to avoid meeting with Palestinian Christians, despite the vice president's extremely public professions of Christianity. Trump last week said it would take at least three years to move the embassy, but Pence in Israel this week said it would be in place before 2019 is out.

German far-right AfD politician converts to Islam
AfD's basic program, which was adopted a year ago , claimed that "Islam does not belong to Germany". Suddenly far-right officials stress in public religion is very much a "private matter".

According to this diplomat, what Abbas was suggesting to the Europeans in Brussels this week had been "also suggested, in a different way, but essentially the same thing" by Jordanian King Abdullah during several contacts and meetings with European officials.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence assured the Israeli parliament today that "In the weeks ahead, our administration will advance its plan to open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem - and that the United States Embassy will open before the end of next year".

Pence, in an interview with the AP from Jerusalem, said the president was intent on implementing a merit-based system that encourages immigration by those who will "contribute to a growing American economy and thriving communities". During his talks with the U.S. vice president, the King reaffirmed his deep and unwavering conviction that the two-state solution for the Palestinian conflict is and remains the only viable solution and that all efforts should be directed in that direction.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Christians were reported by the news outlet Israel Hayom as rejecting Pence's brand of evangelical Christianity. America stands with Israel.

The flu season hasn't peaked and can worsen says CDC
A total of 30 children have died from influenza this flu season , including 10 new cases reported to the CDC as of January 13. Symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Meanwhile, during his stop in Israel, Pence said nothing of any USA intention to prompt Israeli officials to show flexibility on basic Palestinian demands, including a reduction of the economic suffering of Palestinians in the suffocated Gaza Strip. Pence, he said, was very keen on the issue and had provided Netanyahu with clear assurances on the matter.

"We understand Israel's unique security situation", the association said on Twitter, adding that they "fail to see any good reason for the continued humiliation of professional accredited journalists". "And Israel will have to pay for that".

President Trump's decision follows a certain logic, and does not come out of the blue despite the surprise and shock it caused to Arab governments.

In New York, the Palestinian representative to the UN, Riyad Mansour, recalled the early days of the Trump administration, when there was some hope the President's interest in making "the ultimate deal" would spur progress.
