US President May Recognize Jerusalem As Israel's Capital Next Week

On December 1, a senior US official told Reuters that US President Donald Trump may deliver a speech on December 6 recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Some Arab experts speculate that such a move will be a major blow to the US relations with Arab countries and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. None of the former US president or western leaders have ever recognized Israel’s control over all of Jerusalem.

However, a spokesperson with the White House National Security Council denied these claims and told Reuters that the White House have “nothing to announce”.

President Trump has promised during his presidential campaign in 2016 that he will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Many experts doubted Trump’s promises back then and didn’t believe that Trump could take such a dangerous step. However recently many reports claimed that the US president is close to announcing this historical decision.

Trump said on October 8 that he wanted to give a shot at achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians before moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Since then, no real effort has been made by the US to push the Israeli-Palestinian peace process forward.

“I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem … If we can make peace between the Palestinians and Israel, I think it’ll lead to ultimately peace in the Middle East, which has to happen” Trump said during an interview on October 8 according to Reuters.

Saeb Erekat, a member of the Palestinian Parliament described the possible US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as “playing with fire”, according to the Qatari al-Jazzera TV.

“Any US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will end Jerusalem cause,” Erekat said on December 1.

The Palestinian side will likely halt all negotiations with Israel if Trump fulfills his promise to Israel. A new upraising in the Western Bank and a military escalation in Gaza Strip are also a possible outcomes.

    The city of Jebusites was not built by Jews. David conquered the indigenous tribal peoples in 1000 BCE, then he renamed it Jerusalem. David then declared that it could only belong to the Hebrew tribe of Benjaminites. I who hold personal relationship with Christ understand ethnic-Hebrew history better then modern day Jews do. For those who wish to read the history itself, read the ‘Books of Samuel’.

      In UN the ISIS leader is the head of human rights violation.
      U.S. Senators John McCain and Hillary Clinton: we have been funding and arming ISIS, FSA, Al-Qaeda and Taliban all the time.

      Zionist America is the mother of all terrorists. They using ISIS, Israhell, AL-QAEDA, and other all terrorist groups for intervention in the target countries to divide e.g. Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan and so on.

      Zionist America funding and arming all terrorist groups to kill millions in every single country in the world. American, Israel and Saudi govs even don’t care and attack on residences and funerals which is against human culture and civilisation.

    Hah… To remain relevant, CIA-run Reuters goes 4-chan – just substitute “anon” with “Senior US official says…” and the news writes itself. Reuters: pathetic tactic – you still suck and 4-chan will always be way more entertaining.

    Just go on Trump, so the US could be removed from so called peace mediator then, this action is clear indication with who US sided with, and no change to legal status at all, it show that zionist force clearly in panic mode, and they already knew time isn’t on their side.

    Does anybody could expected something different, sooner or later ?

    In a sense, an senseless move, to do what, to somehow legitimize an “jewish” state, run from an “jewish” city, huh, and then what, the problem remains the same, ISISrael.
    So the freak show, The Trump Family, on steroids this days, little Khosher eh….. Kushner boy, have been running the show, yeah, an ISISraeli bitch, and in the WH, the bow to their master pimp, the Lithuanian rat, NothingbutYahoho insane drivel.

    Judeo-Christians, I dont even know how to begin to explain their stupidity, but everything the think they know is a lie, even the name Jew is an lie, its an invented one and is just an century old.
    The problem is their lies, about an home land, and even in their claims, they wiped the locals of the map, and they do it again.
    How nice, and you whine about Crimea.

    But I know this will be an reality, Trump is what we feared, an cheep whore, where the price tag is the only difference.
    What an dawn fall.

    You think Goolag is an problem regarding RT and so on, when it comes to religion, they go insane, the amount of bullshit about religion and certain religions is baffling, and the sites are stacked to an extent that finding any reading that is of higher quality, or far more correct/true, out there to an test, it will take your time, but in the mean time you wade thru shit and shinnola, because the lies and simple forgery’s is also staggering, and all encompassing, I dont know if it is an genuine trend, the rising level of ignorance, or is it deliberate, in that I am, hehe, not certain, but the search engines this days is weird, tsk, tsk, tsk.


  • Hide Behind

    To recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, hmmm; It already is looked upon as such by most of US NATO allies, they just do not yell it outloud.
    80+MILLIONS within US, with branches in every third world non-Islamic ones as well, all are affiliated as Dominionist Christian Zionism.
    Add their numbers to Israeli/Jews within US, all of them proffessing Jerusalem to be their capital city, whew, that is one heck of a lot of political and most importantly, economic power.
    Trump owes American Jewery big time. Massive big time, for it has been through their financial power in the few New England states has he survived.
    No one can launder money as well as the Jewish Mafia and their Orthodox Charity find set up, no one,
    Bush connection to Russian starchy began long ago, with money laundered by Russian Jews through Israel and back through states.
    Aside from not wanting to get his ass shot, by elements within US Intelligence, his debt to them if not paid could be a political death knell.
    Trump is but carrying out a promise made under Regan Bush and even Clinton read, all through both political parties power members.
    Does it slap over 50 years of IN mandates down, of course it does , but the IN is no more than a house of prostitution to service US and European powers.
    Trump can move Embassy to Jerusalem, but where in Jerusalem will he build it, as the Israelis have to kick out Palestinians to build a new apartment building as it is.
    HAMAS being no more than Jewish serve nts will just have to give a little.
    Oh they can whine and cry but if U.N. cuts off its aid they will shut up.
    American militia will support Trump no matter what he does.

    “Recognize” – why does a capital need to be recognised? By a foreign power? A capital is not a sovereign state that needs to be recognised as such! Weird garbled International law BS, making some propaganda headlines.
