At Paris meeting, major powers to warn Trump over Middle East peace
"Major powers will signal to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday that a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians is the only solution, with France warning him that plans to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem could derail peace efforts.
Some 70 countries, including key European and Arab states as well as the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, are in Paris for a meeting that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected as "futile". Neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians will be represented."

Obama's secretary of state, John Kerry, said the settlement programme threatened Middle East peace and the two-state solution.
Palestinian President Authority Mahmoud Abbas said on Saturday that he had told Trump that a move to Jerusalem would kill off the peace process and strip the U.S. of its role as honest broker - and could lead to the Palestinians going back on their recognition of Israel."
Major powers? Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. You mean France? Quite the major power, a power who cannot even project its military "might" across the mediterranean as far as Libya. What a bust. No these are not even minor powers, these are the whinging children of the world, always with the "right" answer, but never with any skin in the game, and never with any serious ability to backup, or enforce their idiotic positions.
Whether the Two State solution is the right solution is a fight for another day, but these whinging children playing dress up are not to be listened to by the hegemon. Obama has left the world in a precarious state, and it is time for the US to put forward a functioning, integrated plan to bring the problematic elements under control. Whether this mean withdrawing from the Two State solution, is unclear, but it should be on the table.
Advice for the peanut gallery, if you wish to be taken seriously, behave seriously. Allowing your militaries to decay to the point where America must protect you, proves your lack of seriousness. If you want a role, get serious, if not, America intends to continue to ignore your childish yammerings.
