U.S. hints at Trump Mideast peace plan: Lots to like, some not

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley has given a hint of the Trump administration’s peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians, saying it’s long, takes advantage of new technology, and has a lot both sides will like and things they won’t like.

Haley said Israelis and Palestinians as well as countries around the world have a choice: They can focus on the parts they dislike, which she said means returning “to the failed status quo of the last 50 years.” Or they can focus on parts they like and encourage peace negotiations to move forward.

The ambassador told the U.N. Security Council Tuesday that “both sides would benefit greatly from a peace agreement, but the Palestinians would benefit more, and the Israelis would risk more.”
