Israeli defence minister says uneasy over US-Saudi arms deal

Kenny Thornton | 26 May, 2017, 19:04

Trump made headlines as the first sitting US president to visit the famous Western Wall, part of the Temple Mount and one of Judaism's holiest sites.

Israeli and Vatican officials have launched talks to discuss the possibility of Pope Francis paying a visit to Israel and the wider region in a bid to push peace between Israelis and Palestinians. By not mentioning the need for an independent Palestinian state in any of his public addresses, nor criticizing Israeli settlement building in the occupied Palestinian territories, Trump endeared himself to the Israeli right.

Clashes broke out between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces on Wednesday as Israeli demonstrators marched through the Old City of Jerusalem to mark the 50th anniversary of Israel's capture of the city's eastern half.

The White House said that in talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday, "President Trump underscored the United States' ironclad commitment to Israel's security, including to the maintenance of Israel's qualitative military edge". "Sovereignty means responsibility for each and every resident of Jerusalem".

It later annexed East Jerusalem in 1980, in a move that is not recognised by the worldwide community.

The worldwide community doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over east Jerusalem and Palestinians regard it as the future capital of an independent Palestinian state.

Maharashtra civic polls results : Congress-NCP ahead in two corporations,BJP in one
Counting of votes in all the three civic bodies will start at 10:00 am today, the election officer added. The Shiv Sena only managed one seat as of yet with the Congress and NCP failing to open their account.

Thousands of Palestinian homes and sites were destroyed or demolished in the occupation.

How many of those fulminating today about the damage done by the exposure of Israel's role in collecting intelligence on the Islamic State were similarly outraged when the Obama administration exposed Israel's role in the "Stuxnet" cyberattack on Iran's nuclear program?

Trump visited Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust remembrance center Tuesday for a wreath-laying ceremony, and enthusiastically pledged he would "never forget" when signing the guestbook at the site.

Although Trump was the not the first president to visit the Western Wall, he was the first sitting president to do so.

"The Palestinians are ready to reach for peace" and "Benjamin Netanyahu wants peace", said Trump.
