The conference came in the middle of reports that President Donald Trump’s long-awaited ” Offer of the Century” would be revealed next week as Pence invited Netanyahu and his political competitor, Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, to fly to Washington on Tuesday.

Netanyahu thanked Pence for speaking “exceptionally movingly” about the Holocaust.
” Thank you. Mr. Vice President, first let me state that you spoke exceptionally movingly today, both in the compound and the depth of feeling that you communicated, and it was a universal expression of a company, ethical stance to translate memory into action. And you are translating it into action,” the prime minister said.
” President Trump and you are standing versus the worst symptom of antisemitism, which is the call of Iran to eliminate the six million and more Jews of Israel. You discussed it plainly today, and you act plainly every day,” he added.
Netanyahu went on to thank Trump for giving Israel peace and security.

” We have actually had no much better good friend than President Trump. That relationship is expressed in the fact that we remain in the American Embassy in Jerusalem, that Jerusalem was recognized by President Trump as Israel’s capital, that President Trump has actually acknowledged Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and now, with this invitation, I think that the president is seeking to give Israel peace and security, the peace and security that it should have,” he said.
He said he “happily accepted” Pence’s invitation to the White Home next week.
The two Israeli political leaders will fly out on Tuesday, the very same day a Knesset vote is prepared for the facility of a committee to dispute Netanyahu’s demand for resistance in the corruption charges facing him.
The Trump administration’s peace proposition set to present next week will be the most generous American peace plan ever for Israel, a Channel 12 report stated pointing out an unnamed source. It would supposedly permit Israeli sovereignty over all West Bank settlements and the Jordan Valley together with an acknowledgment of demilitarized Palestinian state.
The plan would consist of a “significant shift of the [Israeli] border” eastwards, the report stated, and would meet all of Israel’s security demands.
All Likud ministers were banned from media interviews Thursday in deference to the Trump administration’s upcoming plans, the report said.
The Palestinians would receive statehood so long as they complied with the following four conditions: 1) Recognize Israel as a Jewish state; 2) demilitarize Gaza; 3) deactivate the Hamas terror group; 4) acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. If the Palestinians things, the report stated, the White House might then rely on Israel and successfully greenlight the addition of West Bank settlements immediately.
The proposition’s primary aim, the source said, is to include areas to Israel and to allow for a practically unbroken territorial succession, with a continuum that would provide West Bank neighborhoods the ability to reach Jerusalem “on foot.”
The term aliya baregel, actually equated as “going up by foot,” refers to the biblical expedition to the Temple in Jerusalem that took location three times a year on the Jewish celebrations of Passover, Shavuot and Succot.
