Verse of the Day

“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”” — Matthew 1:20-21 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica.

Report: US to Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital, Palestinians Threaten Violence

United with Israel

An Israeli media outlet reports that President Donald Trump is planning to announce that the US officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

According to the Israeli media outlet Yedioth Ahronoth, Trump is also weighing the possibility of fulfilling his campaign pledge of moving the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Potential US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the relocation of the US embassy are reportedly motivated by domestic political considerations related to renewed pressure from Republicans and evangelical Christians regarding US policy towards the Jewish state.

The Yedioth Ahronoth report came on Thursday just a day after the White House downplayed reports that Trump would announce the embassy’s relocation.

“This is a premature report. We have nothing to announce,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, AFP reported.

Israel’s Channel 2, meanwhile, reported on Wednesday that Israeli government officials believe it is extremely likely that Trump would announce the embassy move in the coming days.

In a speech on Tuesday marking the 70th anniversary of United Nations Resolution 181, which endorsed the establishment of a Jewish state in what was then British Mandatory Palestine, Vice President Mike Pence said that Trump is “actively considering” moving the embassy.

Trump on June 1 signed a waiver to keep the US embassy in Tel Aviv. The president now faces a December 1 deadline to decide whether or not to sign a waiver for an additional six months.

Palestinians Threaten Terrorism
Responding to the reports, the Palestinians are threatening violence.

Palestinian spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said on Friday that a US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem are “equally dangerous to the future of the peace process and would take the region into the square of instability.”

Abu Rudeineh had earlier said that “east Jerusalem, with its holy places, is the start and the end for any solution that would save the region from destruction.”

He stressed that “any just solution” to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict should ensure that east Jerusalem is the capital of the independent Palestinian state, adding that “failure to reach a solution to the Palestinian issue will prolong the state of tension, chaos and violence that are prevalent in the region and the world.”

He claimed that the region is facing difficult choices and the crises of the region are coming up to a difficult test, and that these serious challenges “affect the essence of the entire Arab existence.”

Hamas on Saturday said US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would lead to an “escalation” of the “Jerusalem intifada,” the Times of Israel reported.

The terror group said that the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital would constitute “flagrant aggression” against the city and “a barefaced violation of international law.”

Such a move would serve as a cover for a Jewish takeover of the city, Hamas alleged, calling on the Palestinians to resist any such action through renewed violence and terrorism.

以色列媒体报道,唐纳德·特朗普总统正计划宣布,美国正式承认耶路撒冷为以色列首都。

据以色列媒体Yedioth Ahronoth透露,特朗普也在考虑如何履行竞选承诺,将美国驻以色列大使馆从特拉维夫迁至耶路撒冷。

据报道,以色列的首都和美国大使馆的迁移可能使美国承认耶路撒冷,这是由于共和党和福音派基督徒对美国对犹太国家的政策再次施加压力所引发的国内政治考虑。

白宫发表声明说,特朗普将宣布大使馆的搬迁。

“这是一个不成熟的报告。法新社报道,白宫新闻秘书萨拉德·桑德斯(Sarah Sanders)说,我们没有什么可宣布的。

与此同时,以色列第二频道周三报道,以色列政府官员认为,特朗普在未来几天将宣布大使馆的举动极有可能。

在周二纪念联合国第181号决议通过70周年的一个讲话中,副总统迈克·潘斯说,特朗普正在“积极考虑”动使大使馆,该决议批准在当时的英国强制巴勒斯坦建立犹太国。

特朗普在6月1日签署了豁免保留美国驻特拉维夫大使馆。总统现在面临12月1日的最后期限,决定是否再签署六个月的豁免。

巴勒斯坦人威胁恐怖主义
对这些报道作出回应,巴勒斯坦人正在威胁暴力。

巴勒斯坦发言人阿布·鲁代涅(Nabil Abu Rudeineh)周五表示,美国承认耶路撒冷是以色列的首都,或将其大使馆从特拉维夫迁往耶路撒冷,这对和平进程的未来同样危险,并将使该地区陷入不稳定的广场。 ”

阿布·鲁代涅早些时候曾经说过,“东耶路撒冷及其圣地是任何可以拯救地区免于破坏的解决办法的开始和结束”。

他强调,巴以冲突的“公正解决办法”应该是确保东耶路撒冷成为独立的巴勒斯坦国的首都,并补充说“未能解决巴勒斯坦问题将延长紧张局势,混乱局势和暴力局势”在当地和世界流行的“。

他声称,该地区正面临艰难的选择,该地区的危机正在经受艰难的考验,这些严峻的挑战“影响到整个阿拉伯存在的本质”。

哈马斯星期六说,美国承认耶路撒冷为以色列的首都将导致“耶路撒冷起义”的“升级”,“以色列时报”报道。

这个恐怖组织说,美国承认耶路撒冷是犹太国家的首都,将构成对这个城市的“公然侵略”和“裸露的违反国际法的行为”。

哈马斯说,这样的举动将成为犹太人接管城市的掩护,呼吁巴勒斯坦人通过再次发生暴力和恐怖主义来抵制任何此类行动。
