It ignores countless UN resolutions, the Oslo accords of , the Arab peace initiative of and the fundamental idea that Palestinians, like Israelis, have the inalienable right to self-determination. It has given the green light for the application of Israeli sovereignty to the settlements built illegally since the war, which now house , Israeli Jews. The demand that Israel freeze existing settlements though only in areas allotted to the Palestinians for four years pales into insignificance compared to the recognition of that basic principle. It is unclear what happens next. Netanyahu, the first Israeli prime minister facing corruption charges while in office, will press ahead next week with a cabinet decision on unilaterally annexing the Jordan valley. If that happens, it will pose a serious and immediate diplomatic challenge for the rest of the world, including the EU and Britain days after Brexit , because it will remain illegal under international law. The Trump deal will be alarming for neighbouring Jordan, whose peace treaty with Israel was only signed because there was an Israeli-Palestinian peace process in place.

The Arabic dub of One Piece. It was televised on the local Space Power Channel , which was widely watched throughout the Arab world. There is censorship in this dub, however it is rather strange and inconsistant. Blood and violence is okay sometimes, and other times it's not. It would seem as if the dub did not want the episode duration to vary due to these cuts, so they use freeze frames frequently or slow down and reverse footage. Most editing is done to female characters such as Nami , Nojiko , and Vivi , due to cleavage or exposed skin.
