Israel demands explanation from White House after spat over Trump trip

Kenny Thornton | 18 May, 2017, 05:28

June 1 is the expiration date on the presidential order, last signed by President Barack Obama, freezing implementation of the 1995 USA law calling for the move of the embassy to Jerusalem.

Earlier this month, marking Israel's Independence Day, Vice President Mike Pence said that the Trump administration was continuing to give "serious consideration" to moving the embassy to Jerusalem, The Times of Israel reported. Such a move would implicitly recognise the disputed holy city as the capital of Israel and be likely to end the prospects of a peace deal with the Palestinians, who regard east...

So far, the global community does not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and not a single foreign country has based their embassies in Jerusalem.

Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state along with the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip that is controlled by Islamist Hamas.

Trump was right the first time: the us embassy in Israel should be located in that country's capital, as it is, to my knowledge, in every other country in the world.

Israel's Channel 2 reported that during a planning meeting between United States and Israeli officials, the Israelis were told that Trump's visit to the Western Wall was private, Israel did not have jurisdiction in the area and that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not welcome to accompany Trump there. He's going to say, 'We don't accept.' It's all he can do.

The spat reportedly erupted during preparations for Trump's visit, during which he is planning a stop at the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City.

"It's not your territory", Israeli television quoted the unnamed official as having said.

Separately, Israelis were riled on Monday by a report on Channel 2 news that a member of the U.S. delegation making preparations for Mr Trump's visit rejected a request that Mr Netanyahu accompany Mr Trump when he visits the Western Wall, the Jewish religious site that lies in Jerusalem's Israeli-occupied eastern half.

The warnings from U.S. officials across government agencies - including from some inside the West Wing - add to the steady stream of cautionary advice Gulf state diplomats and top Arab officials have shared with Trump and top White House advisers. Mort Klein, President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), said on Monday that he is very disappointed with Trump's handling of the issue.

He also later met with Netanyahu. "It's part of the West Bank", Israeli television reported on Monday night. But Tillerson linked Trump's deliberations directly to his aspirations for brokering Mideast peace.

"[Dermer] explained why moving the embassy would help advance peace and not the opposite".

According to the report, the Israeli delegation was so angry that members started shouting.

"His love for and commitment to the state of Israel is rock solid and it enjoys his highest priority".
