Trump isn't deciding who controls East Jerusalem — Haley

Haley: Trump isn't deciding who controls East Jerusalem

"The transfer of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and the recognition of the Holy City as the capital of Israel is a blatant challenge and provocation to the feelings of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims", the mufti said in a statement Dec. 6. Both Israelis and Palestinians claim the city as their spiritual capital, and these tensions have helped fuel the longstanding Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But, he added, "I have delivered!".

Dayan insisted there would be "no change on the ground", but Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, disagreed.

Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital. The competing claims to East Jerusalem, the section of the city captured by Israel in 1967, have frequently boiled over into deadly violence over the years. But a key question is whether the EU will take action, such as robustly enforcing bans on imports from West Bank settlements and refusing to deal with Israeli businesses operating in occupied territory, setting itself on a clearly differentiated course from the US. It makes bold moves. I recently read an article in a Jewish newspaper headlined: World Jews 'more worried about Charedim than Arabs'. They all sound very different, but when they play together with every note perfectly timed in synchronised harmony, the result is outstanding.

Otherwise, the political benefits for him are unclear. As the only president to have prayed at the Western Wall while in office, the speech reflected his support for Israel.

Trump may think his stance will freshen the stale talks. China and Russia expressed concern the plans could aggravate Middle East hostilities. For the young Palestinians the anger was palpable, and raw.

"The recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is unacceptable and represents a step toward the elimination of the Palestinian cause, which will not be allowed by Arabs and Muslims", the mufti said, calling to confront the Israeli enemy in various ways.

Indeed, far from ruling out a Palestinian state, he potentially ruled it in, saying that the US would accept a two-state solution if the Israelis and Palestinians agreed on it. Nir Barkat, the city's mayor, said on Wednesday "here in Jerusalem and Israel we applaud the president" and if people became violent "they will pay a heavy price". The 25-year-old living in Ramallah had a red and white keffiyah scarf wrapped around his mouth, making only his eyes visible.

Trump in his Wednesday announcement said he would put plans in motion to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but also signed a six-month waiver delaying the move. Israel, behind the scenes, has become a tacit ally of the Saudis in the Sunni-Shia conflict.

In Lebanon, the leader of the militant group Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, said in a speech that he supported the call for an intifada after "Trump fired the last bullet at the peace process". "He destroyed the two-state solution", Saeb Erekat, who long served as the Palestinians top negotiator, told journalists.

So this could be done with the stroke of a presidential pen and a flourish.

Turkey slammed Trump's Jerusalem announcement as irresponsible and illegal.

Pope Francis said he was "profoundly concerned" and appealed that "everyone respects the status quo of the city". You demonstrate resilience. And you ask your good friends in the US, be they Republican or Democrat, evangelical or secular, to defend you; to affirm that Jerusalem is indeed Israel's capital. "We believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region".
