Israeli PM urges approval of Jerusalem decision

Posted December 14, 2017

The incident comes after three days of protests were held in Palestinian territory against U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Macron expressed his disapproval of Trump's decision at Sunday's meeting.

Pope Francis on Sunday issued an appeal for "wisdom and prudence" in the wake of clashes over Trump's Jerusalem decision. Comments on his profile called him a hero for the alleged attack.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended. He reportedly was inspecting the Palestinian man's backpack when the terrorist pulled out a knife and stabbed the guard in the chest.

United States President Donald Trump's ground shaking announcement on Jerusalem prompted a new wave of rapprochement between Turkey and Russia, and the issue will be high on the agenda during Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Ankara today. In the West Bank, there were dozens of injuries, but no deaths.

Speaking on CNN, Guterres said he was pleased that Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner had been meeting with Israelis and Palestinians on a new peace plan after years of stalemate in the process.

Alyssa Farah, the vice president's press secretary, said in a statement, "It's unfortunate that the Palestinian Authority is walking away again from an opportunity to discuss the future of the region, but the Administration remains undeterred in its efforts to help achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians and our peace team remains hard at work putting together a plan". Trump's announcement was denounced by critics who suggested he had needlessly stirred more conflict in an already volatile region.

The police detained some demonstrators but it was not clear how many.

Lebanese security forces on the scene responded with tear gas and water cannons, as demonstrators lit a large garbage can andcar tires on fire.

The government of Lebanon, which hosts about 450,000 Palestinian refugees, has condemned Trump's decision. They acknowledged that Washington would most likely veto it.

A two-page resolution adopted by the emergency meeting, which began Saturday night, did not include any punitive actions against the US, such as a call for a boycott of American products or changes to ties with Washington.

The move upended decades of USA policy, and a longstanding global consensus, that the fate of Jerusalem be decided in negotiations.

"For those who want to say this is a bad idea, I'll tell you: Ask us five or 10 years from now if you still think it's a bad idea. I strongly believe this is going to move the ball forward for the peace process".

After all, Jerusalem has been Israel's capital since its founding in 1948. In Paris, Netanyahu talked about his quiet but improving relations with Arab countries that look to Israel as an ally against Iran.

Lieberman said the Arabs of Wadi Ara in northern Israel were "not part of us" and that Jewish Israelis should no longer visit their villages and buy their products. The Arab League also rejected the American decision, saying on Saturday that it amounted to recognition of the illegal occupation of East Jerusalem by Israel, and ipso facto had no legal basis.
