Donald Trump expected to recognise Jerusalem as Israeli Capital

Will Donald Trump declare Jerusalem as Israeli Capital? Jordan and Palestine are in a havoc and call for an emergency meeting ahead of Donald Trump meeting Israeli Diplomats. The Arab-league is in a jeopardy as the rumour has gone strong that they are planning to declare Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. “It will hamper all the peace and development process in the middle-East.” says one of the leaders of the Arab league. “This threatens every Muslim in the world.”

The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, while the international community does not recognize Israel’s claim to all of the city. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned on Sunday that any recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would jeopardize Washington’s Middle East peace efforts. The Arab League also warned on Sunday of “hazardous consequences” if the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “If implemented, it would mark a change in Washington’s historical stance that sees the holy city as an occupied Palestinian city and an integral part of the occupied Palestinian lands,” Saeed Abu-Ali, assistant secretary general for the occupied Palestinian and Arab lands, said in an Arab League statement, as quoted by Xinhua.

Even though the president is said to have not made any decision but his meeting ahead with the Diplomats can do the rest. Israel has been asking to shift its Washington embassy. In May, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the move would contribute to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process by “shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.”
