Trump 'declaring war in the Middle East — Palestinian envoy

Poster in Jerusalem Welcoming Trump's Influence

Instead, they have a permanent residency that provides other benefits like access to Israeli education and healthcare.

The deadline of that waiver was Monday. "If Trump moved the embassy of course there would be chaos and protests against him".

Christine Keeler, the model who became internationally famous for her part in the Profumo scandal of the early 1960s, has died aged 75.

"There is no way that there can be talks with the Americans". "I don't mean war in terms of conventional war, I mean war in terms of diplomacy".

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has said there are no plans for Australia to shift its embassy from Tel Aviv.

Palestinians were calling for three days of protests starting from Wednesday, raising fears of potential unrest. But our position has not changed.

"Israel is duty bound to express its satisfaction and joy, and, yes, this is their capital and they want this recognition", said Yossi Mekelberg, a Middle East expert at the Britain-based Chatham House.

Abbas' diplomatic adviser Majdi Khaldi said the Palestinian leadership would "stop contacts" with the United States if Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the Associated Press reported in a dispatch from Jerusalem.

About 200,000 Jews live in several settlements in East Jerusalem.

The An-Nahar newspaper compared the US president to the late British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour, who a hundred years ago famously promised Palestine as a national home to the Jewish People, in what is known as the Balfour declaration.

Senior U.S. officials said Trump asked King Salman of Saudi Arabia, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, and Jordan's King Abdullah II to help in lobbying the Palestinians to refrain from violence and return to peace talks.

China has long maintained that Palestinians must be allowed to build an independent state, although it has traditionally played little role in Middle East conflicts or diplomacy, despite its reliance on the region for oil. Such terminology is favoured by Israeli officials and would imply Israel's sovereignty over East Jerusalem.

As a result, all countries with diplomatic missions to Israel maintain their embassies about 60 kilometres down Highway 1 in Tel Aviv. These are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this. "The city is sacred in Christianity, Islam and Judaism".

Trump isn't the first U.S. president to suggest moving the American embassy.

"On the issue of Palestinian territories, their hands are tied & they can't achieve their goals", he said. Palestine will be "freed" and the people of Palestine will reach victory.

He said he hoped "wisdom and prudence prevail, in order to avoid adding new elements of tension to a global panorama that is already convulsed and marked by so many and cruel conflicts".

Trump's move comes close to fulfilling a campaign promise, and will delight his political donors and the conservative and evangelical base so vital for the embattled president.

While running for U.S. president, Donald Trump made a similar pledge to Clark's to move his country's embassy.

The council also called on the US and all nations to commit to existing international resolutions on Jerusalem, describing any move to recognise Jerusalem as a capital for Israel as a "dangerous violation" of UN Security Council resolutions.

"When you look at a place that is on the verge of an explosion, you do not introduce a flame", said Hanan Ashrawi, who sits on the Palestine Liberation Organization's executive committee. There is no other obvious reason he is doing this now.

Speaking Wednesday at an event in Jerusalem, where he appeared keen to not trump Mr. Trump's own announcement later in the day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said only that Israel's "historical national identity is receiving important expressions every day, but particularly today".

"Emmanuel Macron recalled that the question of Jerusalem's status should be resolved within the framework of peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, aiming in particular for the establishment of two states living side by side in peace and security with Jerusalem as the capital", the Elysee said.

Since Palestinians also consider Jerusalem their capital, any policy that appears to favor the Israelis' claim over the Palestinians' is extremely contentious.
