Arab League leaders condemn Trump's recognition of Jerusalem

"No normalization [with Israel] and no compromises". As one of the three most sacred sites in Islam, it enjoys a highly significant status among the Muslims.

Afghan protesters shout slogans against the U.S. and Israel. President Trump is doing the right thing by telling the United Nations that the United States now rejects the one-sided U.N. Security Council Resolution.

Officials in the region said Trump's decision ended any pretense that the United States could be an evenhanded broker in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But what molds Palestinian and Arab political opinion is not the historical reality, but rather the image, context, and framing, which connect Balfour's declaration to the present day.

In Ramallah, Bethlehem, Tulkarim and Nablus cities in West Bank, as well as Gaza, the organization said 219 were injured.

In addition, China is a growing source of visitors, with 76,400 Chinese tourists visiting Israel between January and November last year, a rise of 60 per cent from 2015. Trump made the announcement on Dec. 6 at the White House.

"The mediation now is largely done by the US and the United Nations", he said. Jews could not live in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, where their forebears had built homes and synagogues for thousands of years.

"Israel bears full responsibility for any results of the escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip", said Hamas spokesman Hazem Kassem. If that is too big a leap, let the Palestinians urge the Arab states to go first so they have support for their move. But he did not.

The move was fully supported by Pence.

The protestors were carrying a huge Palestinian flag to show their support with Palestinian efforts to gather support around the globe against the US decision. "Until then, we recognize no sovereignty over Jerusalem", it added.

Trump's reversal of decades of U.S. policy on Wednesday sparked a Palestinian "day of rage" on Friday.

I will travel to the Golan, from which one can look into Syria and see hostile militias - and from where desperate Syrians cross into no man's land in order to seek treatment from Israeli doctors.

The Israeli military said hundreds of Palestinians were rolling burning tires and throwing rocks across the border at soldiers.

The Trump administration, however, appears to have concluded that the process might work differently if the Palestinians thought that they did have something to lose.

Rational negotiation, here as anywhere, involves rewarding behaviour we wish to encourage and punishing the opposite. Palestinian health officials say at least one Palestinian was killed. No future president can undo this pernicious agreement, since a veto not cast can never be retroactively cast.

In doing so, he rejected chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat's remarks from earlier this week, according to which Palestinians will move toward a civil rights struggle and demand one state.

But today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital.

In 1995, Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognise that that city - and so importantly - is Israel's capital.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he is recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the United States will be moving it's embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Most countries consider East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed after capturing it in the 1967 Middle East War, to be occupied territory, including the Old City, home to sites considered holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians alike. The time has come to look at what it will mean for Israel to permanently rule over a disenfranchised Palestinian population in the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem.
