Trump Admin Regrets Erasing Israeli Territory From US Maps

Ellis Copeland | 22 May, 2017, 17:23

And Carter, who ushered in the historic Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty - also known as the Camp David Accords - during his tenure, knows all too well the challenges Trump now faces in marshaling the Arab-Israeli peace process forward.

The Palestinians want the eastern part of the city to be the capital of their future state, alongside the West Bank and Gaza.

Trump has sent mixed signals about how he will approach the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's depiction of his beleaguered regime as "the new Jews of the 21st century that Hitler pursued" has.

President Trump promised us he would recognize Jerusalem and move the Embassy to Jerusalem and we wholeheartedly believe that this promise is non-negotiable and will happen while he is President. The official asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Trump is also scheduled to meet with Netanyahu and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall. Like other countries, the USA keeps its embassy in Tel Aviv, approximately an hour away.

In a series of comments completely counter to decades-long official U.S. policy regarding Jerusalem and the Western Wall, Trump's ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Nikki Haley, created yet another controversy on Tuesday when she claimed in a television interview that the "Western wall is part of Israel".

"Previous discussions about a Palestinian-Israeli settlement revolved around the exchange of only 1.9 percent of the lands, but now we are talking about more than triple that amount", he noted.

Ben-Dahan argued that the U.S. administration officials who had placed pressure on Trump regarding the embassy and the administration's position on Jerusalem were remnants of the Obama administration, which had adopted a clear pro-Palestinian stance.

He sent an envoy, Jason Greenblatt, to the region in March to open talks, and Trump has met with both Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House.

"We are ready to engage with Israel in peace talks. So much of what goes on is in Jerusalem and I think we have to see that for what it is".

Still, Israeli analysts have scoffed at what they call Trump's clumsy decision to skip a visit to the fortress city of Masada, where Netanyahu had invited Trump to speak.

But with "a new sheriff in town", as Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, put it, both the Israelis and Palestinians want to give the new administration a chance.

President Trump will stay in a hotel suite built to withstand virtually any threat, including a building collapse, during his upcoming visit to Jerusalem.

That stunned the Palestinians but delighted Netanyahu, who heads a right-wing coalition with pro-settler parties that strongly oppose a Palestinian state.

Israeli officials say they are largely in the dark about what ideas Trump might present for peace or what concessions he may demand.
