U.S. President Donald Trump has officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, this motion reverses many decades of American foreign policy and this has become more intense, as he plans on moving the U.S Embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City of Jerusalem.Meanwhile, the United States Jerusalem recognition doesn’t seem to accepted by all.
Trump made this decision as a break with many decades of failed policy in Jerusalem, which the United States, alongside other nations in the world has refused to recognize as the capital since the founding of the Israeli nation in 1948.That policy, he said, brought us “no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.”
President Donald Trump’s remarks seem to be the most closely examined of his presidency on the Middle East, where he has vowed to negotiate the “ultimate deal” between the Israeli and Palestine nations.He also promised that he’s committed to negotiating an agreement which will bring forth great deals for both Israel and Palestine.
The U.S. President has issued that the decision to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel shouldn’t be judged as the United States picking a side on whether, or how the Holy City might definitely be shared or not.But he offered a little relief to the Palestinians, as he failed to mention anything about their dream of East Jerusalem being the capital of a Palestinian state.
Instead, he threw more light on the domestic political aspect of the decision.He also noted that past U.S. Presidents has used this decision as a major campaign message in which they always fail to deliver.And the decision being one of his major campaign promises he will not fail to deliver.
Though this was not mentioned in his speech, President Donald Trump Just like his predecessors signed a national security waiver which will allow the administration to maintain the embassy in Tel Aviv for further six months.
President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Isreal has isolated the U.S. on one of the most sensitive diplomatic matters in the world.
This decision has drawn a lot of criticism from different leaders of the world most especially the Arab and European leaders including the Vatican.
