European Union warns Trump against recognising Jerusalem as Israeli capital

Saudi's King Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud told US President Donald Trump that any decision to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem before a permanent peace settlement is reached will inflame the feelings of Muslims, Saudi state-owned media said yesterday.

Amid a frantic round of telephone diplomacy, Trump told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan's King Abdullah of his "intention" to relocate the United States embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, but crucially did not give a time-frame.

King Salman told Trump that any USA decision regarding the status of Jerusalem before a final peace agreement is reached is going to hurt negotiations and increase tension in the region.

On today's "Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten", Josh discusses reports indicating that while the USA might not move it's Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem just yet, a dramatic announcement is expected from the Trump Administration acknowledging that Jerusalem is in fact the capital of the Jewish State.

He said such a move is going to provoke Muslims around the world because of the status of Jerusalem for Muslims as the location of Al- Aqsa Mosque, the Muslim's first Qibla. The kingdom expresses its denunciation and deep regret that the administration has taken this step, as it represents a great bias against the historic and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem, which have been affirmed by the relevant global resolutions and have been recognised and supported by the worldwide community.

Egypt's El-Sisi cautioned Trump against "taking measures that would undermine the chances of peace" and complicate matters in the Middle East, a presidential statement released in Cairo said.

American officials said on Friday that US President Donald Trump meant to make the announcement soon in violation of a trend that his predecessors had followed in keeping this issue away from peace negotiations. Many western countries and Arab countries had urged not to shift embassy.
