Egypt's El-Sisi Meets with US Jewish Leaders, Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el Sissi in New York

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will hold his first public meeting with Egyptian President Abd al-Fatah al-Sisi on Monday night in New York City, according to Egyptian media reports. "Most people would say 'there's no chance whatsoever, '" Trump said as he began a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in NY ahead of the U.N. General Assembly's meeting.

Departing from his prepared remarks to the UN General Assembly, Sisi said he wanted to "tell the Palestinian people, it is important to unite ... to overcome the differences and to be ready to accept co-existence with the other, with Israelis, in safety and security".

Although Monday was the first time the two men had met in public, they had previously been involved in secret talks together.

The two leaders discussed resuming aid during the Wednesday meeting, according to Reuters.

Following talks with Egyptian officials in Cairo last week, Hamas said that it had dissolved its administrative committee running Gaza and agrees to hold general elections in order to end the decade-long split, a move that was welcomed by Fatah officials.

The developments signalled a shift in Egypt's approach to the Islamist Palestinian group following years of tensions with Cairo accusing Hamas of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood group.

After months of rumours and speculation, Apple has scheduled the launch its new iPhone 8 - along with other products - for 10 a.m. The omission of a home button brings forth a new way of unlocking the iPhone X - tapping on the screen now wakes the device.

After US President Donald Trump assumed office in January, bilateral relations between Egypt and the US significantly improved.

Netanyahu - speaking at an event earlier this month - noted that the current shift is more profound than the one after the signing of the 1993 Oslo Accords with the Palestinians, and the 1994 Israeli peace treaty with Jordan.

The settlement will be based on the two-state solution and worldwide resolutions on the dispute, he continued.

The meeting between Sisi and Netanyahu in NY on Monday followed a rare phone conversation between Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas of Fatah and Hamas chief Ismail Haniya.

Let's hope that Sisi's message is taken to heart.

Trump visited Israel and the occupied West Bank in May.
