The economic portion of Trump's peace plan was unveiled during a US-led conference in Bahrain last June, a convention boycotted by the Palestinians. A statement from Netanyahu's office said most of the meeting focused on Iran, though the peace plan was also discussed.
"There will be no discussion with the Americans until they recognise the two-state solution", one Palestinian official said.
Al-Qurayshi said the plan was to "fight the Jews and restore all that they have usurped from Muslims". "But I think in the end they will. It's very good for them". So we'll see what happens. "In order to move forward with the 'Deal of the Century, ' it is our responsibility to march united under a prime minister who has the public legitimacy to enact it".
Details: Trump is to meet with Netanyahu first, at 11 a.m., and then with Gantz at 12:30 p.m. VP Pence, Secretary of State Pompeo, senior adviser Jared Kushner and other Trump aides are expected to attend both meetings.
Gantz's decision to travel to Washington separately reflected his need to remain on good terms with Trump while keeping his distance from Netanyahu.
Palestinians have roundly denounced a $50 billion USA economic revival plan it set forth last July to lift the Palestinian and neighbouring Arab state economies.
Palestinian leaders, who have not been invited to the White House, have already rejected the USA initiative and insist that Trump's administration has forfeited its role as an honest broker in the conflict due to what they say is the president's pro-Israel bias.
Trump was impeached in the House of Representatives last month and is on trial in the Senate on abuse of power charges.
Also on Monday, the Islamic State (IS) group vowed in to launch a new phase of attacks focusing on Israel and blasted the USA administration's plan to resolve the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
As the White House prepares to unveil its long-awaited plan for a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians, CNN has learned that the Trump administration has made a renewed attempt to speak to the Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.
"The outline has more political aspects than diplomatic", Ya'alon said in an interview with Kan Bet. "Whether it's next year or in five years, there is a high likelihood that the Democrats will take control of the White House", while adding that "even if Israel accepts this plan now, it could very well be turned back by the USA and that reality should not be ignored by the Israeli side".
The proposal, more than 50 pages long, aims to take on some of the most hard issues separating the two sides, such as the status of Jerusalem.
Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on Monday denounced the long-anticipated peace proposal, saying it "doesn't constitute a basis for resolving the conflict".
Regardless of the outcome of his summit with Trump, Netanyahu's foray to Washington gives him a major boost.
The Trump administration took several steps in recent years that angered the Palestinians.
"According to the report as well, the deal would cancel the Green Line, annex West Bank settlements and the Jordan Valley, and declare to adhere to Jerusalem as a whole, and all of this would happen at the height of a fierce Israeli election campaign". Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast war.
Palestinians and most of the global community view the settlements as illegal. Netanyahu faces charges of fraud and bribery. Both men deny wrongdoing. He also said the plan is supported by Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel's political parties. He had previously seen it as interference in the vote.
