Palestinians Reject Trump's Jerusalem Declaration

On Jerusalem, Trump seen delivering to evangelical backers at home in moment of 'rhetorical boldness'

Chinese tourists travelling to Israel should "stay vigilant" and use caution as US President Donald Trump's formal recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and order to move the American embassy to the holy city intensifies tensions in the already conflicted region, China's embassy in Israel has warned.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has lashed out at Israel after Donald Trump decided to recognise Jerusalem as the Jewish state's capital.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the Washington has credibility as a mediator with both Israel and the Palestinians and accused the United Nations of damaging rather than advancing peace prospects with unfair attacks on Israel.

The president hasn't hesitated to assess his first year in office as a banner success, pointing to promises kept, such as the installation of Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.

Palestinians clash with Israeli troops in the wake of Donald Trump's decision on Jerusalem. Federation, confederation, local autonomy, Jordan is Palestine - over the years all these formulas have been broached and none found viable. But they are also Israeli citizens who largely reject the notion of becoming part of a future Palestinian state.

There were widespread "predictions" that President Trump's decision on Jerusalem would "lead to violence". "Any move is significant and the world is right to regard it as a serious step".

I will be asking Israeli civilian and military sources whether war with Iran is likely on the country's northern frontier.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set off for a two-day trip to Paris and Brussels on Saturday night, criticizing European "hypocrisy" and "double standards" in remarks he made to the press before take-off.

"A decision like this without understanding the history, without understanding the intricacies of the impact of this decision is very bad", said demonstrator Al Suqi, of New Jersey.

Israel, of course, has not rewarded this conduct. And that people ranting about death to Jews are not part of any hypothetical "peace process".

Let's increase the costs of violence by doing things they don't want until they start negotiating sincerely. "People are joking that Trump talks and talks but delivers Americans only Christmas and Jerusalem". "I was there myself, four times", Khoury said.

I will be asking if anyone on either side has any new ideas on how to solve this most intractable dilemma. "Nobody watches Al Jazeera anymore; everybody I know is watching Al Mayadeen TV from Hezbollah's Lebanon".

'The leaders of major countries have a mission to make peace'.

The declaration was not an effort to reassure Israelis that America stands with them as they face the hard compromises any "deal" will entail.

The Palestinian Authority under President Mahmoud Abbas closed the schools Thursday, and called for a general strike in businesses.

Trump's landmark announcement on Wednesday, including starting the process of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, was a stark departure from nearly 70 years of U.S. policy.

Ramzi told me that he hadn't been able to get a permit to visit Jerusalem in 15 years.

I put this decision in the latter category on moral and historical grounds. But the version of Israel that Netanyahu is trying to consolidate today does not need reassurance. "But what it is is rhetorical boldness".

Trump's declaration was met with dismay in much of Europe.

Yet it is unclear how the Palestinians will respond.

Afghan protesters shout slogans against the U.S. and Israel. "If there will be disturbances, then we will respond immediately".
