GOP Rep: Trump 'Deeply Disappointing' on Israel Embassy

Irune Rengel | 04 Junio, 2017, 17:10

INSKEEP: Would you remind us why the USA embassy isn't in Jerusalem, which the Israelis say is their capital? President Trump can waive it only for six months, meaning he will have to revisit the issue again on Dec 1.

Israelis and Palestinians view the ancient city with great importance.

A senior Israeli official is expressing disappointment over Trump's decision against relocating the embassy to Jerusalem and is accusing the US of caving in to Arab pressure.

After announcing such a plan during the campaign, Trump this week signed the Jerusalem Recognition Act Waiver, delaying that move for at least six months.

Under the law, the American Embassy in Israel was supposed to be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in 1999.

He said he called 911 and an operator told him there were reports of a man with a gun in one of the rental vehicle parking lots. Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Chairman Frank Kruppenbacher praised the response of law enforcement and airport employees.

President Donald Trump will eventually move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, predicts a pastor and ally of the president.

Husam Zomlot, the Palestinian Authority representative in the United States, was happy with the decision, saying it removed one obstacle to negotiations. First, what Trump "heard from Arab leaders, starting with King Abdallah of Jordan (back in February) about the impact such a decision would have on US allies in the region both in terms of how it will affect them domestically but also complicate resetting Arab-US relations".

"The decision underscores the seriousness of the US administration's efforts to promote peace and build a bridge of trust", he said, "particularly after the summit in Saudi Arabia [attended by Trump] and the meetings between [PA President Mahmoud] Abbas and Trump". The president was referring to the Palestinian leader's claim that youth in the PA-administered areas are raised in a "culture of peace".

White House officials cautioned that this is a postponement and Trump still intends to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

He waited to do so until the last minute as the previous waiver, signed by former President Barack Obama in December 2016, was due to expire on Thursday.

En otro hecho, señaló que fueron halladas cinco bolsas de plástico con restos humanos a la altura de la colonia Nuevo Mirado. El portavoz dijo que la Fiscalía General del Estado inició las carpetas de investigación sobre estos sucesos.

Press secretary Sean Spicer reiterated in a statement that the president is still committed in his support for Israel and to the eventual embassy move.

A semi-annual presidential act, signing a waiver that maintains America's Israel embassy in Tel Aviv, has become a subject of heated speculation and debate, following Donald Trump's statements of intent - as presidential candidate and as President-elect - to move the embassy to Jerusalem.

"President Trump made this decision to maximise the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, fulfilling his solemn obligation to defend US' national security interests", the White House added.

Palestinians argue that moving the embassy from Tel Aviv would prejudge one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict - that status of Jerusalem - undermining United States status as an effective mediator. Schumer noted that he believes that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel, and was therefore "deeply disappointed in President Trump's decision". Two decades later, Israel captured east Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast War and annexed it, though without worldwide recognition.

However, its claim to all of Jerusalem is not internationally recognized, and is disputed by the Palestinians who want East Jerusalem, i.e. the historic section of the city, to serve as the capital for any future Palestinian state.
