Palestinians Deny Report U.S. Assured PA It Won’t Move Embassy

1

Senior Palestinian sources denied today a report that the PA had received assurances from Trump administration officials that the promised move of the U.S. embassy to Yerushalayim would not take place.

Asharq Al-Awsat had reported earlier in the day that PA officials were “relieved” by the assurances.

Responding to the initial report, Avi Issacharoff reports for Times of Israel, Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi told Israel Radio that Israel’s government was “sitting in the bleachers” on the embassy debate. “I assume this issue will be debated in the U.S. for some time.” Still, “I have no doubt the final decision will be different from preceding administrations. It may be creative, maybe a piecemeal [move].”

Hanegbi added that even without relocating the embassy, a move by Washington to recognize Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital would be very significant.

  1. I repeat…

    The Australian Government’s statement on Monday 2nd January 2017 that they would not relocate their embassy to Jerusalem was correct.

    “Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.”
