Israel prepares for Palestinian violence during Pence visit

UN Security Council

The Muslim nation summit was a response to U.S. President Donald Trump's December 6 decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Senior Trump administration officials outlined their view Friday that Jerusalem's Western Wall will remain part of Israel, another declaration that inflamed passions among the Palestinians.

"The government has to be able to push the OIC to issue a joint statement on the withdrawal of the USA support for Israel", she said.

Trump made the announcement on December 6, saying at the time that the USA would be moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Ambassador Danny Danon, Israel's permanent representative to the UN, on Saturday night condemned the draft resolution submitted to the UN Security Council calling to rescind President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"We have supported Palestine and Jerusalem (al-Quds) on all global platforms and we will continue to do so", he added.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.

We must use all our power to oppose the villain, he said.

Google to take action against websites spreading fake news
The spokeswoman also stated that the move was to ensure that people "understand and see where their news online is coming from". The company also targeted the advertisements and paid promotional material saying that these should not exceed the content.

The draft resolution calls on all countries to refrain from opening embassies in Jerusalem, reflecting concerns that other governments could follow the U.S. lead.

The leaked Egyptian-drafted resolution obtained by Al Jazeera, however, does not mention the United States by name, saying it "deeply regrets recent decisions regarding the status of Jerusalem".

It demands that all member-states not recognise any actions that are contrary to United Nations resolutions on the status of the city.

Middle East scholar Siti Mutiah Setiawan of the UGM School of Social and Political Sciences said on Thursday that the UN Security Council had placed Jerusalem under the supervision of the world body.

Several UN resolutions call on Israel to withdraw from territory seized during the 1967 war and have reaffirmed the need to end the occupation of that land.

He urged the Muslim countries to cut ties with Israel.

"This American position proves once again that the current United States administration is completely out of the peace process", he added.

To pass, a resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by the United States, France, Britain, Russia or China.
