Arab states urge U.S. to abandon Jerusalem move
Listen



CAIRO: Arab foreign ministers on Sunday urged the United States to abandon its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying the move would increase violence throughout the region.

The announcement by President Donald Trump on Wednesday was a “dangerous violation of international law” and had no legal impact, the Arab League said in a statement after several hours of meetings attended by all its members in Cairo.

Trump´s endorsement of Israel´s claim to all of Jerusalem as its capital would reverse long-standing U.S. policy that the city´s status must be decided in negotiations with the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

"The decision has no legal effect...it deepens tension, ignites anger and threatens to plunge region into more violence and chaos," the Arab League said at 3 a.m. local time after hours of meetings that began on Saturday evening.

It said it would seek a U.N. Security Council resolution rejecting the U.S. move.

Lebanon´s Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said during the emergency meeting that Arab nations should consider imposing economic sanctions against the United States to prevent it moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

"Pre-emptive measures (must be) taken...beginning with diplomatic measures, then political, then economic and financial sanctions," he said, without giving specific details.

The Arab League statement made no mention of economic sanctions.

Arab criticism of Trump´s plan contrasted sharply with the praise Washington´s traditional Arab allies heaped on him at the beginning of his administration in January.

What if in case Trumps did not abandon his decision? What could happen afterward? The reality on the ground is going to change. Even his european allies did not agree to his decision.

I believe nothing will happen..One can't force US to change his decision ...Yes some of the European countries do reach but then this is not the prime issue for them ...

Even if the US insisted on its current taken stance, nothing will really change. Israel is bound by the Oslo Accord agreement which states that east Jerusalem is part of the Palestine territory. Trump can shove his decision where the sun don't shine.

Its very simple to explain,the US needs a new war,thats why this recognition.
Lets get ready for another Hezbollah vs Israel with some Hamas in the mix.
The only difference will be that this time both the Sunni's(supporting Hamas and the Shias(supporting Hezbollah) will be involved.
The Israëli people dont realize whats coming.
This could be WWIII in the making.

In a way this could help the Muslims unite(Sunni Shia).
Some people might think that Trump is a ''Muslim'' agent tasked to instigate the annihilation/destruction of Israel.

Yes in a way this could unite arm resistance too..I think Trump will soon be declared as an agent as you described supporting Hamas and hezbolaah in disguise..Opinions will now surely turn in favor of both these arm resistance...Trump i beleive is good for world ...Doesn't pretend and maneuver while openly declare (be it right or wrong)his intentions...
We should take him seriously now at-least he is delivery on his election promises..(Moving embassy to Jerusalem is one of those)

Bibi Netanyahu lashes out at Erdogan. I wonder what will Turkey response be? Will Turkey closes embassy and recall its envoy from Israel? Or will Erdogan put his head between his legs as if nothing happens!

Recognition of Jerusalem: Confrontation will hurt ties, US warns Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - The United States has warned Pakistan from going too far against Washington on the Jerusalem issue as it could hurt the already fragile relationship, diplomatic sources said.


Senior officials at the foreign ministry told The Nation that the US was not happy over Pakistan’s strong reaction and had urged Islamabad to “play safe”.

One official said: “We told them the recognition of Jerusalem by the US as Israel’s capital was unacceptable but they are expecting from us to move on and refrain from confrontation [with the US] on ‘petty’ issues. We cannot obviously betray the Muslim world.”

He added: “Pakistan is determined to spearhead the Jerusalem campaign. We will not come under any pressure.”

Trump’s controversial decision came when Pak-US relations were already at a low ebb. Last week, US Defence Secretary James Mattis visited Pakistan and asked Pakistan to show “practical change” regarding the indiscriminate action against the militants.

In August, US President Donald Trump accused Pakistan of protecting “agents of chaos” and threatened to end the alliance, if Pakistan did not show results.

The US is also angry over the release of Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Mohammed Saeed. Washington has asked Pakistan to re-arrest and try him.

The US and India accuse Saeed of masterminding the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.

Over the weekend, the White House called for “calm and moderation” as protests broke out worldwide after US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Trump urged all parties to “act in a manner conducive to peace,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said.

Demonstrators marched in Pakistan , Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia, Egypt, Europe and Palestine. Israeli forces killed four Palestinian protesters.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said at least 767 wounded people were treated during the course of the second “day of rage” clashes.

Another official at the foreign ministry said Pakistan had asked Washington not to link the Jerusalem issue with the bilateral ties .

“Jerusalem is a global issue on which Pakistan has a longstanding stance. Pakistanotherwise is keen to improve ties with the US,” he told The Nation.

The official said Pakistan would take up the Jerusalem issue at all international forums and stand with the Muslim world in “this hour of need.”

Earlier, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal said Pakistan was “gravely concerned” on Trump’s decision to shift the US embassy to the occupied City of Al-Quds Al-Sharif, altering the legal and historical status of the city.

“Such a step constitutes a clear violation of the international law and [the] UN Security Council Resolutions, particularly UNSCR 478 of 1980,” he added.

Faisal said Pakistan called for establishment of a viable, independent and contiguous State of Palestine, on the basis of internationally-agreed parameters, the pre-1967 borders, and with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

International relations expert Dr Talat Wizarat said Trump’s decision on Jerusalem had disappointed the whole world and infuriated all the Muslims.

“This is not a small issue. It relates to more than one billion Muslims living across the world. Pakistan has a decades-old stance on Jerusalem and Palestine. The government cannot change this policy under any pressure,” she said. Wizarat said the Muslims across the world must have a united stand on Jerusalem, forcing Trump to reverse his decision.

Former ambassador Mushtaq Ahmed Mehr said Pakistan was the leading Muslim-majority country and other Muslims had great expectation from Islamabad. “Pak-US tiesare important but we cannot compromise on the Kashmir and Palestine issues. [The] US must admit it has made a mistake by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. No Muslim country will accept this decision. Even the Western countries are not supporting Trump’s decision,” he said.

Mehr said protest marches were held in Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden in solidarity with the Palestinian people, which proved it was a global issue.
