European states push US for detailed Middle East peace proposals

This week, President Trump declared that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The residents, like many of Israel's Arab minority, sympathize with the Palestinians of the West Bank and often openly identify with them.

"In the name of Fatah I say that we will not welcome Trump's deputy in the Palestinian territories".

In a joint statement after the meeting, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden and Italy said the U.S. decision, which includes plans to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, was "unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region".

The emergency meeting of foreign ministers from 22 Arab states was held in Egypt's capital on Saturday night.

There has been widespread denunciation of Donald Trump's move, especially in the Muslim world. After a rowdy start, the protest drew several hundred people and became more peaceful, with demonstrators chanting and singing.

He said the Palestinian leadership was considering all options in response to Trump's announcement.

The preacher at Al Aqsa told worshippers that the city will "remain Muslim and Arab".

Yet it is unclear how the Palestinians will respond.

One rocket struck the town of Sderot but no casualties were reported.

The Islamist group Hamas, meanwhile, has called for an uprising against Israel.

But Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University, saw Trump's words about the embassy as "just a grandiose statement on Jerusalem without a line in the sand".

"What he does is he wants to give the perception of campaign promises filled", said Brinkley. But he did not.

Chinese tourists travelling to Israel should "stay vigilant" and use caution as US President Donald Trump's formal recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and order to move the American embassy to the holy city intensifies tensions in the already conflicted region, China's embassy in Israel has warned.

"We strongly condemn the use of disproportionate force by Israel", it added.

Instead, Trump said, "it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times". The reason: Sunni Arab countries that once backed them are now more focused on the threat from Iran than they are on the Palestinian cause. Alternative formulations would have included saying that the United States supports a two-state solution or a final, negotiated resolution. But as this point has been ably argued by various Post colleagues, let us narrow our focus to the question of the negotiations for peace that, politicians and pundits rushing in where angels fear to tread assure us, are going on in the region and might be threatened by this move. "At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel".

People close to him estimate that Mr. Trump spends at least four hours a day, and sometimes as much as twice that, in front of a television, sometimes with the volume muted, marinating in the no-holds-barred wars of cable news and eager to fire back.

Trump's announcement raised fears about a new wave of violence.

When someone in a position to stop violence "predicts" violence, he is threatening or promising that violence will occur. The announcement forfeited that possibility.

Trump's reversal of decades of U.S. policy on Wednesday sparked a Palestinian "day of rage" on Friday. On Saturday, the Hamas-run health ministry said two Hamas gunmen were killed in one of the strikes on a Hamas facility in Nusseirat in the central Gaza Strip.

The vicinity, containing contentious holy sites, is a flashpoint for violence. I will be asking.
