Palestinian Group Urges Stronger Intifada against Trump's Decision on Quds

Russian Federation announced its recognition of West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state.

"The one, who does not want to discuss peace with the U.S. side, does not want peace", Netanyahu said at the meeting with Israeli ambassadors. But Mogherini said she still wanted to work with the United States on Middle East peace talks and had discussed ways to restart them late a year ago with Pence and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Ambassador Dennis Ross, who has worked for Republican and Democratic administrations and, most recently, was a special assistant to President Barack Obama, said Pence emphasized the administration's outreach to Israel.

Israeli Arab members are escorted by security out as U.S. Vice President Mike Pence speaks in Israel's parliament in Jerusalem.

On Tuesday, Pence met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and vowed the United States would counter the Iranian nuclear threat.

"It's looking pretty bleak", said David Makovsky, director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy's Middle East Project, who was in Ramallah during the PLO meeting.

East Jerusalem, where the Western Wall lies, was occupied by Israel in 1967 and later annexed in a move condemned by the global community.

Tensions in the Palestinian Authority and Gaza - already high - rose Monday night with the Fatah faction urging disturbances at "friction points" following the vice president's historic speech to the Knesset earlier in the day.

Pence spoke to the Israeli parliament but not to all the country's lawmakers. I think this really takes America out of its global superior position, which is by itself not a bad thing because in many places the American involvement did not benefit the people or did not end conflicts.

Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

"You are a mensch", Rivlin said of Pence.

Referring to the 1948 founding of Israel, he said US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the country's capital last month "righted a 70-year wrong".

US president Donald Trump's announcement that the United States would move their embassy in Israel to Jerusalem soon backed the European Union into a corner concerning the Middle East peace process.

The Trump administration remains "hard at work" cobbling together an Israeli-Palestinian peace proposal but the effective Palestinian boycott of Washington is a "huge bump", a senior White House official said on Tuesday.

Pence told Reuters in an interview that the timing of a US-led Middle East peace plan now depends on Palestinians agreeing to return to the negotiating table.

"The U.S. administration is part of the problem rather than the solution", Erekat said.

Notwithstanding the ongoing incitement in the PA-administered territories and the PA's funding of terror, Abbas reiterated what he described as his "commitment to fighting racism, violence, and extremism, on a local, regional and global level despite any obstacles that might get in the way of a political solution".
