A key architect of the long-awaited U.S. plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace has lashed out at the U.N.’s “anti-Israel bias” while urging support for the Trump administration’s “vision” — but the Palestinian foreign minister dismissed the American peace effort, saying all indications are it will be “conditions for surrender.”

The speeches by U.S. envoy for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt and top Palestinian diplomat Riad Malki at an informal Security Council meeting Thursday ended up focusing on much broader issues than the chosen topic of Israeli settlements as the “core” issue in obstructing peace.

Greenblatt called the council’s “obsessive” focus on Israeli settlements a “farce,” saying settlements aren’t preventing Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and the council should instead condemn Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad for firing hundreds of rockets into Israel from Gaza.
