US Embassy's move to Jerusalem is another step by the Trump govt to delight Israelis and anger Palestinians

US Embassy's move to Jerusalem is another step by the Trump govt to delight Israelis and anger Palestinians
DAWN:

When the Stars and Stripes is hoisted over the new US Embassy in Jerusalem next month, it will be a physical milestone in a broader, striking shift by the Trump administration away from a half-century of traditional US policy toward Israel and the Palestinians.

For decades, even amid close US-Israeli ties, Washington has tried to position itself as a neutral party in the vexing Mideast conflict, willing to call out both sides when they take steps seen as contrary to the pursuit of peace. Yet, the expected May 14 move of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will be just the latest in a series of steps the administration has taken that have delighted Israelis and angered and alienated the Palestinians.

Over the course of his first 16 months in office, President Donald Trump has recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital over Palestinian objections, slashed American aid to the Palestinians and programs that support them and ordered their office in Washington closed, though he ultimately let the office stay open. Just last week, Trump’s administration signaled it may be moving away from describing the West Bank as “occupied” by Israel.

“Since the beginning of this administration there has been speculation about the real intention of this administration and of the team around the president,” Husam Zomlot, the Palestinian ambassador to Washington, said in an interview. “This is no longer perception, expectation, speculation. It’s reality. We are in the arena of certainty.”
