Controversy over Trump Israel policy ahead of visit

Danilo Martir | 19 May, 2017, 21:39

A diplomatic spat on Monday erupted between USA and Israeli officials, just days before a planned visit by President Donald Trump, after an American representative questioned Israel's claim to one of the holiest sites in Judaism.

Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who gave President Donald Trump's inauguration its single largest donation at $5 million, is furious about comments Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made on Sunday regarding Trump's campaign promise to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Axios reported.

Tillerson, speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday morning, said Trump is taking a very "deliberative approach" to the issue.

The statement from Netanyahu's office came after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump is still assessing the impact of the potential move.

"It would advance it by fixing a historic wrong and shatter the Palestinian illusion that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel".

While Trump has not taken any action on his pledge to move the embassy so far, the Palestinian leadership fiercely opposes any such effort, and the global community has warned that it could spark unrest.

Friedman, who has long argued for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and previously called the two-state solution a "scam", presented his credentials to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday.

Donald Trump is set to meet Palestinian and Israeli leaders nearly back-to-back on his first foreign trip as U.S. President.

President Trump is scheduled to make the Old City his first stop after landing at Ben Gurion Airport on May 22.

A senior member of a USA delegation preparing for President Donald Trump's upcoming visit to Israel reportedly snapped that the Western Wall is "not your territory" while discussing details of the president's visit to the Jerusalem holy site with with Israeli counterparts on Monday.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, on the other hand, said in a statement that moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem would not harm the peace process, adding that he made his views in this regard clear during his previous meeting with the Trump administration.

Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem in 1967.

Current US policy is that East Jerusalem's status should be determined by Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Friedman, who visited the Western Wall after his arrival on Monday, said Trump had given him "the unequivocal and unambiguous mandate to support the state of Israel in every way and in all ways".

The reaction to Trump's reported visit to the site shows why sitting United States presidents have stayed away from the Western Wall.

One focal point of President Trump's visit next week is bound to be Jerusalem.

Abbas is also at risk of being sidelined by Trump's efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
