Trump 'thinking seriously' about moving United States embassy to Israel to Jerusalem

Trump 'thinking seriously' about moving United States embassy to Israel to Jerusalem

United States president Donald Trump on Friday said that he believes Israeli settlements in the Palestinian West Bank are not "good for pace".

"They don't help the process", Trump said of settlements in the Israel Hayom interview.

Israel Hayom - is regarded as a mouthpiece for Israel's prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu. "I don't want to condemn Israel during my term", Trump said. The Israeli army said the mortar was not aimed at Israel, but was a "spillover" from fighting within Syria, and that in response, the Israeli army struck a target in the northern Syrian Golan Heights. Israelis have gone through very hard periods.

During the first two weeks of Mr Trump's presidency, there was no comment from the White House as the Israeli government approved the construction of new homes at settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem. I don't want to condemn Israel during my term. Maybe there is even a chance for a bigger peace than just Israel and the Palestinians.

Mr Trump also said he was thinking "seriously" about his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a step that is fiercely opposed by the Palestinians.

'I don't think there should be a pause, ' Trump added during that interview, conducted in an Indianapolis hotel room. I'm learning the subject, and we'll see what happens.

She added: 'It has made me realise I can be strong and whatever happens, I know I will survive it. Runners up were madcap Irish duo Jedward who came third in their previous Big Brother experience.

"The embassy is not an easy decision". It's already been debated for years.

In the interview, Trump walked back on a number of statements made while campaigning for president.

"There is limited land left, and every time you take land for settlements, there's less land left".

"I am not somebody that believes that going forward with these settlements is a good thing for peace", he said. But we are looking at that, and we are looking at some other options we'll see.

Eyewitnesses who were at the funeral of one of the two workers in Rafah said that the tunnel opening on the Egyptian side was struck, not the Palestinian side, and both workers were killed.

"If the intention is genuine, proclaimed in words, to proceed in the direction that provides for the peaceful existence of two States, Palestine and Israel, for two peoples, then one can not take measures and implement accomplished facts that go in the opposite direction". Decades. A lot of people think that it can't be done.
