"I said that we have no desire to govern the Palestinians, but we have every desire to protect ourselves, " he said.

Speaking at an annual meeting of the pro-Israel lobby "AIPAC", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran's influence in the Middle East is on the rise.

In their fifth meeting within the past year on Monday, Netanyahu and Trump presented a united front on Iran, Israel's arch foe, although Netanyahu would like to see a more active American policy in the Middle East.

The decision, though, has stalled the US-led peace process, causing uproar in the Arab world and leading Palestinian leaders to reject a USA role in mediating a resolution to the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He thanked the American leader, as many other speakers did, for his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his promise to move the U.S. Embassy there in May.

He said Israel and its Arab allies would support a possible move by US President Donald Trump to tear up the JCPOA if it is not strengthened in a way to prevent Tehran from resuming its alleged quest for atomic weapons.

The PLO recognised Israel officially in 1993, but Israel has yet to offer formal recognition of Palestine.

Senator Charles Schumer said a looming problem for Israel is that "too many younger Americans don't know the history" that explains why Israel must be on constant alert.

"Iran must be stopped". "If they don't, you don't have peace".

"What actually is happening is that the PA leadership is terrified that numerous Arab countries will support the Trump plan, thus abandoning their Palestinian brothers and leaving them exposed to worldwide pressure to accept the 'deal of the century, '" Toameh writes, a fear that "does not seem to be unjustified".

"The Palestinians, I think, are wanting to come back to the table", Trump said.

"Under a darkening cloud", said Rabinovich, "one of Netanyahu's main assets with the Israeli public is his ability to argue that he is very effective in improving an already close relationship with the USA". But the other thing that the Arabs see is that we are united in stopping the greatest radical Islamic threat of war which is Iran.

"Most people would agree to an arrangement of the kind you're talking about if the Palestinians wanted a state next to Israel", Netanyahu told his host, David Rubenstein, the president of The Economic Club, which brings together the Washington, D.C., business community with diplomats.

"To get peace, President Abbas has to embrace peace and to stop supporting terror ..."

In brief comments to reporters, both leaders said U.S. "Special country, special people, and I look forward to being there.", he added. Having backed Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., for president, she claims no role in Trump's stunning victory (as Stephen K. Bannon did).

"$250,000 versus a billion dollars", the president said, turning to Netanyahu.

The meeting between Netanyahu and Trump was the fifth over the past year.

"We will continue to demand that Israel not be treated like some sort of temporary, provisional entity", Haley said.
