Trump is about to agree to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to East Jerusalem, and to more or less recognising it as the Israeli capital. This will enrage the Palistanians , cause huge diplomatic problems with Jordan and others.
Is there no end to this man’s dictatorial method of blindly making such huge decisions?
Actually I think Trump was right. I spent some time in Jerusalem a few weeks ago, a fascinating city. What he says is right, not acknowledging it as Israel's capital has done nothing to move the peace process forward. Every Israeli Government agency except defence has its base in Jerusalem. It's always going to be contentious but needs to be cemented as a fully functioning capital to enable further agreement with Palestine on the way forward.
Apart from Israel , from the Secretary of the UN and all the interested players - for example there is a treaty between Jordan and Israel after East Jerusalem was siezed from them by Israel - to China , Russia, Saudi and us and the EU all dissagree with this move. The fireworks will start soon
to enable further agreement with Palestine on the way forward.
Seriously? Hasn't it occurred to you that this is a deliberate attempt to start yet another bloodbath - predominantly Palestinian blood - pushing any settlement, apart from illegal Israeli ones, even further away?
