Israeli, French leaders tangle over US Jerusalem decision

BRUSSELS (AP) - European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini is meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address the issues of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the chances of reinvigorating negotiations on the peace process.

In East Jerusalem, mounted police and security forces fired tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets when the crowd approached an Israeli military base in the city.

Israel captured East Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War and declared the entire city as its capital in 1980, a move condemned by the international community to this day.

"Countries in the region who do not have formal relations with us yet". Then, Saudi Arabia, along with Turkey, started its campaign to destroy Syria and intervene in Iraq's affairs, and now, Riyadh intends to annihilate the Yemeni people.

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will not meet United States Vice President Mike Pence later this month.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended.

A wave of anti-American and anti-Israeli protests also swept through numerous countries, with thousands of people taking to the streets in Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Afghanistan and elsewhere. The main indicator of this is the position paper published by Trump's advisor Jason Greenblatt and current U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.

For his turn, Netanyahu said "Peace (talks) will progress if the Palestinians recognize the reality of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel". In the West Bank, there were dozens of injuries, but no deaths.

"Jerusalem will always be a part of Palestine". Comments on his profile called him a hero for the alleged attack. Even though the Israeli side knows very well that Trump's move won't lead to a comprehensive deal between the sides, it does not bother the Israelis at all.

In a resolution long on rhetoric but short on concrete actions, Arab foreign ministers demanded the recognition decision be rescinded and urged the U.N. Security Council to adopt a resolution condemning Trump's decision. But courage causes that...

"When it comes to those people (who are) upset, we knew that was going to happen".

Macron told Netanyahu that he needed to make gestures to the Palestinians to break the impasse between the two sides.
