Palestinians seek European Union recognition of East Jerusalem as capital of Palestine

  • Palestinians seek European Union recognition of East Jerusalem as capital of Palestine

Israelis consider Jerusalem their eternal capital, but Palestinians have also long aspired to establish the city's eastern sector as the capital of a future Palestinian state, making the city a sensitive subject in potential peace talks.

But they can create a bloody mess on Israel's border, creating problems for the Jewish state and throwing the peace process even more into doubt.

"They don't even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel", the United States leader added. The US is the largest donor to UNRWA and ending its aid could have a particularly damaging effect in Gaza.

The two factions announced late Wednesday that they were postponing a planned handover of governing duties in the Gaza Strip from Hamas to the Palestinian Authority government based in the occupied West Bank. "I am talking about the Palestinian Authority's official media outlets; their official schools; their official camps". UNRWA provides aid to Palestinian refugees.

"The President is a master dealmaker and is as committed to trying to achieve the ultimate peace deal as ever, but he will not tolerate falsehoods being spread about America and our positions - and he certainly will not spend taxpayer dollars to subsidize those who spread them", the official said.

The blood-curdling threat comes just weeks after President Trump officially declared U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The Israeli naval soldiers then forced them to take off their clothes, jumped into the water and swim towards the Israeli gunboat.

"President Trump is absolutely right, it is impossible to wait and wait and wait for so many years for the Palestinians to go forward, and renew the negotiations", said Tzachi Hanegbi, Israeli Minister of Regional Cooperation.

Some of that US taxpayer money goes to a policy dubbed "pay to slay" where the PA pays convicted terrorists and their families monthly salaries.

Maqdisi calls on viewers to attack the security headquarters and courthouses of Hamas in Gaza, as these are "the pillars of tyranny".

A successful vote in the Senate would send the legislation to the president for his signature.
