Arab states to push for east Jerusalem as Palestine capital

They also stressed the necessity to confront Trump's decision.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has privately urged Trump not scale back UNRWA's funding, the Times of Israel reported Thursday.

A state intelligence officer reportedly worked behind the scenes to get influential hosts to convince their audiences to accept the U.S. decision.

This is one month after US President Donald Trump recognised the city as Israel's capital.

The comments come in the wake of Donald Trump's announcement in December that the U.S. unilaterally recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Arab governments swiftly denounced the move as protestors sympathetic to the Palestinian cause took to the streets to express their outrage.

Discussions also covered best means to face the consequences of the United States decision that violates global resolutions. "Therefore UNRWA must become a thing of the past".

Shalom Lipner, an analyst at the Brookings Institution and once an aide to several Israeli prime ministers, told The New York Times that, "I don't discount that people are saying, 'Maybe we can get away with more now because nobody in the global community seems to care".

Such an action would minimize the damage to the humanitarian situation of Palestinians in Gaza, which could lead to more tension on Israel's border with the coastal strip.

Current Egyptian foreign policy is to recognize Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.

This position corresponds to Iraq, a country that 15 years after the beginning of the U.S. invasion and the second Gulf War, still suffers from enormous problems of instability and insurgency.

It is inappropriate for The New York Times, a reputable newspaper, to publish such allegations, SIS said.

The Trump administration announced this week it would be cutting security assistance to the Pakistani government for its alleged role in providing safe haven for terrorist groups.

Kholi spoke to at least four influential TV hosts, all of whom appeared receptive to his argument. "I am at your command".

Arab vigilance must continue especially in the wake of the recent Knesset decision making the ceding of any part of Jerusalem to the Palestinians virtually impossible. He has emboldened extremists in both the Israeli and Palestinian camps, alienated America's allies and sowed the same sort of confusion about United States intentions in this arena that has clouded other aspects of foreign policy.

The situation has become even more critical as a result of Trump's decision late previous year to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
