JERUSALEM (AP) – The Mideast peace plan announced by President Donald Trump on Tuesday supports the Israeli position on nearly all of the most contentious issues in the decades-old conflict.

As a result, the Palestinians have angrily rejected the plan, and the international community appears unlikely to rally around it.
