[Update] Vice President Pence Confirms US Embassy Move to Jerusalem

Female journalists protest being 'penned in' during Pence Western Wall visit

The UK's former chief rabbi has come under fire for assisting US Vice President Mike Pence to pen a crucial speech delivered in Israel earlier this week, due to the Trump administration's perceived links to the far-right. When added to the Israeli supporters of the original package, this would raise total support to a significant majority.

There will be no negotiations, Abu Rudeineh said, until the current American administration abides by worldwide law and agrees to work toward a two-state solution, which would see a state of Palestine created along 1967 lines with East Jerusalem as its capital. Referring to past failed attempts at peace, Trump said they never got anywhere because the sides could never get over the issue of Jerusalem.

Abdullah further expressed his message to other Arab nations, encouraging patience as the United States peace plan has not yet come out. The voice belonged to Yehuda Glick, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative Likud Party.

The survey tested the details of a permanent peace agreement, incentives for those who are opposed; perceptions of the other, and alternate scenarios to the two-state solution, including both equal and unequal versions of one state, and a confederation of two states. But when fantasy is added to the question, most grab for it. America stands with Israel. There has also been a surge in rocket attacks from Gaza and Hamas, the terror group which rules Gaza and seeks to destroy Israel, has called for a new intifada to liberate Jerusalem and urged Palestinians to confront soldiers and settlers. "We have to give the Americans the benefit of the doubt", Abdullah said as he reflected on the history of the conflict and the potential for peace that may come after Trump's announcement and the USA peace plan to come. He said the Trump administration was attempting to fix the "damages" inflicted by its predecessor but cautioned against any move that could cause the Muslim world to come together against Israel. The next month, United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley followed suit. "But we will not chase after a Palestinian leadership that lacks what's needed to achieve peace".

The different Palestinian bodies accused the U.S. of helping Israel in "forging" the history of the holy city and "stealing the history of Palestine", with full disrespect to the worldwide resolutions regarding Jerusalem and Palestine.

The decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital was condemned by 128 countries in a UN General Assembly vote in December. Trump last week said it would take at least three years to move the embassy, but Pence in Israel this week said it would be in place before 2019 is out.

"I didn't set it back, I helped it just by taking it off the table, that was the toughest issue", he said. "But they want to make peace, and I hope the Palestinians want to make peace, and if they do, everybody's going to be very happy in the end".

"There is absolutely no doubt that the Trump statement was the fundamental cause".
