Satanovsky: Trump gave a "gift" to the Middle East on New Year

From the very first day of Israel’s existence, the Americans did not interfere in the political status of Jerusalem, insisting that the issue should be resolved solely through negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. However, in 1995, the US Congress passed a bill to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to the “city of three religions”, recognizing the latter as the capital of the Jewish state.

President Clinton, while working to resolve the conflict between Palestine and Israel, put a veto on Congress’s bill, fearing that these actions would negate his efforts. Further, this veto was extended by all subsequent US presidents.

Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has caused the anticipated anger throughout the Muslim world. Turkish President Erdogan even promised to break off diplomatic relations with the latter. We didn’t find support for Trump’s actions in Europe.

The expert on the Middle East Yevgeny Satanovsky believes that there will be no consequences of such a “loud” step by the American president.

      Hope this is sarcasm? It seems to me that Jews will be the last to help the Arabs in the fight against ISIS, and in your opinion Russians are fighting, and the smartest person is a Jew ....

    everyone here says that trump put a pig under the peace process between the Palestinians and the Israelis. whoa peace process where are you? but was he this process is a frozen conflict like the Nagorno-Karabakh or Donbass which will never be resolved without the active actions of one of the parties to the conflict and the trump decided to cut this Gordian knot and it is supported by all Israelis do big things proclaim the state of Israel but its stupid Jews the Zionists proclaimed and those who claimed that it was a historical mistake now screwed up Israel is flourishing and those who did not recognize it for a long time recognized it will be the same with Jerusalem, let it take another 70 years but it will be like Israel recognized by the whole world except obscurantist and marginalized countries if by that time they would still exist already and so three countries declared their readiness to relocate the embassies and Jerusalem handuras guatemala Philippines, Romania and South Sudan are considering the possibility of such a move
