According to Israel National News:
Trump peace plan delayed as Jordan balks at replacing PLO
The outcome of the Jordanian king's visit to the White House this week is crucial to the advancement of Trump's plan.
by David Singer

President Trump’s long-awaited plan on ending the Arab-Israeli conflict will be further delayed following a flurry of diplomatic activity over the past week.
Critical to the success of Trump’s plan will involve replacing the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) as Israel’s negotiating partner, as it has been over the last 25 years. The PLO, administravely known as the Palestinian Authority (PA) has cut its own throat by making it very clear it will have nothing to do with anything Trump proposes. Trump’s Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt met in New York City on 15 June with United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres. The White House reported that they had a productive discussion about the efforts of the United States to promote peace in the Middle East and to meet humanitarian needs in Gaza. This UN visit was followed by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flying to Amman for a public meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah on June 18 – their first since 2014. Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, General Intelligence Department Director Maj. Gen. Adnan Jundi, Adviser to His Majesty and Director of the Office of His Majesty Manar Dabbas and Adviser to His Majesty for Economic Affairs Mohamad Al Ississ attended the meeting.

Communiques separately issued by Netanyahu and Abdullah following their meeting differ significantly."-more

About This Book
A Message From Yaakov Kirschen

The years have rolled by into history. Back when we were new immigrants in Israel, before Israel became the "Startup Nation", we did our best to "fit in" to what was then a bizarre and small time country. We heated our homes with kerosene heaters and we spoke a pidgin English, we shopped at the Makolet, and dealt with bank overdrafts.

During this dimly remembered era, the full page Weekend Dry Bones cartoons drew us together. Our successes in "going native" were chronicled in pages titled "You know you've been here too long when . . . "

Those days and those cartoons, like our youth and innocence, are now long gone, but I wanted to remember. And so I put togther this collection of my favorite Jerusalem Post Weekend Dry Bones pages. I carefully re-layed out those giant one-pagers, keeping them full sized and spreading some of them over several pages of this collection. In the process of gathering the cartoons I was reminded of so much that I had fogotten.

If you were in Israel back then, you'll savor the remembering as much as I did.

A chance for us to take a pleasant walk (or shuffle) down memory lane together.

Looney Tunes

Dry Bones cartoon, Gaza, fires, kites, Palestinian Arabs,UN, UNHRC,
According to Israel National News:
UNHRC approves inquiry into Israeli 'war crimes' in Gaza, 29:2

The US and Australia were the only two countries that voted against the resolution.

"The UN Human Rights Council in Geneva voted Friday to establish a Commission of Inquiry to examine possible war crimes committed by Israel during the recent confrontations on the Gaza border. The resolution was approved by a vote of 29-2, with 14 abstentions, following a day-long special session in Geneva. The US and Australia were the only two countries that voted against the resolution.Germany, Hungary, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Croatia, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kenya, Panama, Rwanda, Switzerland, Togo, and Britain abstained. The Ukraine and Mongolia were not present at the time of voting.

Britain on Friday stated that it recognizes the "tragic and concerning loss of life" in recent Israeli-Arab violence on the Gaza border. However, it said it was could not support an investigation that ignored Hamas's role in what happened, since it would not "provide us with true understanding of accountability."Germany said during the UNHRC session that Israel must refrain from excessive use of force against unarmed civilians, Likewise, Hamas and the leaders of the "protest" must ensure that it remains non-violent, said Germany, which noted that regrettably, the text of the resolution does not adequately reflect the situation on the ground.

The "Palestinian" Ambassador to the UNHRC called peaceful demonstration an "absolute right" on Friday. "Israel and its defenders have given the impression that Palestine occupies Israel. How long will this joke continue?" he asked.The US representative to the UNHRC stated that Washington would vote "no" on the resolution and called on other member states to do the same. Israeli Ambassador Shechter called the resolution "devoid of any sense" and said it "deserves to be torn apart."

The US said that the resolution's one sided focus, and its failure to hold Hamas to task, evinces bias and calls into question the UNHRC's credibility.”
