Trump Recognizes Jerusalem as Israeli Capital
Thursday, 7 December 2017 11:36 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

''Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality,'' Trump said in a highly anticipated speech from the White House Diplomatic Room. ''It is also the right thing to do. It's something that has to be done. That is why, consistent with the Jerusalem Embassy Act, I am also directing the State Department to begin preparation to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said in the internationally televised 11-minute speech.

Trump added, œWe are not taking a position of any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, or the resolution of contested borders. Those questions are up to the parties involved.

The president called on all sides to œmaintain the status quo at Jerusalem™s holy sites, including the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif. Above all, our greatest hope is for peace, the universal yearning in every human soul.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the decision a œhistoric landmark. In a Facebook video, Netanyahu said Israel's "historical and national identity is receiving important expressions every day, but especially today."

But Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Trump™s plan is ˜tantamount to the United States abdicating it™s role as a peace mediator. Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh said, œOur Palestinian people everywhere will not allow this conspiracy to pass, and their options are open in defending their land and their sacred places.
