Trump tells Mideast leaders he'll move embassy to Jerusalem; breaks with US policy

What's at stake if Trump moves US embassy to Jerusalem

The brand-new PM, who was trying to fulfill a campaign promise, eventually backed down, but the debate nearly four decades ago offers a reminder of just how politically sensitive Jerusalem is for Israelis and Palestinians, who both lay claim to the city as their capital.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivers a speech, Dec. 6, 2017, during a diplomatic conference organized by daily Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post focused on Israel's security and economic ties with countries globally, in Jerusalem.

But Dr Danny Lamm, the President of the Zionist Federation of Australia, said he was delighted at the impending announcement.

Past administration have signed waivers every six months to delay the move.

The statement also highlighted that such a move will stir anger against the U.S. which goes against U.S. interests in the Middle East.

The so-called "Greater Jerusalem bill" would see the addition of 140,000 Jewish Israelis who live in these settlements to the population of Jerusalem, to ensure a Jewish majority in the city. Jerusalem, the pope said, holds a "special vocation for peace".

Since 1967, Israel has revoked the residency status of 14,595 Palestinians in Jerusalem.

The international community does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the entire city, home to sites holy to the Muslim, Jewish and Christian religions.

The Palestinian Representative to Britain, Manuel Hassassian, said Trump's recognition of Jerusalem could be the beginning of violence again and the "kiss of death to the peace process". "Mr Trump, Jerusalem is the red line of Muslims", President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, White House officials said US President Donald Trump would announce that the United States government recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday and direct the US State Department to begin the process of moving the US embassy from its current location in Tel Aviv to a site in Jerusalem. It is far too common in the Arab world today to look at the revolutionary uprisings in 2011 in a negative light, due to the upheaval and the unexpected progressions they took. California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for Ventura County on Tuesday, after a blaze scorched the neighborhoods, about 60 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.

As the news came through, via an embargoed but leaked press briefing, confirming that the Trump administration would recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, there are a few things to keep in mind. This hindered the development of East Jerusalem to a large extent, while population growth continued to grow over the years. All embassies are based in the commercial capital Tel Aviv, but most countries simply do not specify what they consider to be Israel's capital.

"The fact that President Trump, the White House, the United States of America will hopefully make that announcement tomorrow is one that we welcome".

Russia will not be competing in next year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the International Olympic Committee has ruled.

Senior administration officials however said that Mr Trump was still committed to the two-state solution if both sides were in agreement.

Trump's son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, along with other officials, has made several trips to the Middle East to advance what Trump has said would be the "ultimate deal". As long as accountability is absent, as long as the agency of the people of the region is not taken seriously, the dignity of the people of the region is not assured.

British foreign minister Boris Johnson, speaking as he arrived for a NATO meeting in Brussels, said "we view the reports that we have heard with concern, because we think that Jerusalem obviously should be part of the final settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, a negotiated settlement".
