Global moot in support of Jerusalem begins in Cairo today

US Vice President Mike Pence waves as he walks on Capitol Hill in Washington

In addition, the conference expressed full support for the steadfastness of the "Palestinian people" and the Intifada against the decisions of the American administration and the Israeli government regarding Jerusalem.

"Any future negotiations will take place only within the context of the global community, by an worldwide committee created in the framework of an global conference", he said.

The Times noted that moving the embassy quickly, albeit in a limited fashion, could boost Trump's side in the coming midterm elections, seeing as his daily aggregate popularity rating has gone up since his Jerusalem declaration from around 36% to an unwavering 40%. APN President Debra DeLee said in a statement that while her group "condemns the offensive language that Abbas used and particularly the unacceptable conspiracy theories that he repeated", the remarks were "the result of Trump's miscalculation" regarding Israel and the Palestinians.

The Palestinians can not force major changes in the policies of the Israeli government that continues with the same colonial, Apartheid-like policies that have defined Zionism since the 1947-48 creation of Israel and the dismemberment, disenfranchisement, and dispersal of the Palestinians.

Abbas blamed the restrictions under which his Palestinian Authority operates and what he regards as Israel's unrestrained occupation activity.

The majority of Israelis know that ruling over 1.5 million Palestinians in the West Bank, in addition to having some responsibility for the 1.5 million in the Gaza Strip, is not healthy for Israel's society- not to mention for those over whom we rule.

I could go on, but what is evident from the Abbas's speech is that the issue between Israel and the Palestinians is not a matter of the 1967 borders, but, rather, condemnation of the very existence of Israel.

The vice president will hold four days of meetings in Egypt, Jordan and Israel during his visit, the first to the region by a senior administration official since Trump announced plans in December to designate Jerusalem as Israel's capital and begin the process of moving the USA embassy from Tel Aviv, angering Palestinian leaders. Both Israelis and the Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their historic capitals. "Our equity is in the safety and security of USA personnel". The Palestinian leader said that it is impossible to trust a government which changes stance with every successive president. "The U.S administration uses pressure, blackmail and threats against the Palestinians who are simply seeking freedom and dignity while it rewards Israel". According to The Jerusalem Post, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley "advocated for a full and immediate aid cut".

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) called on the E.U.to condemn Abbas.

President Abbas claimed that the Palestinians have resided in this region for generations. The head of the Palestinian Authority said that the modern Palestinian's ancestry can be traced back to these original founders of the city.

The latest freeze was money intended for food aid, pledged by the United States in mid-December. Since then, the Trump administration has continued to pour it on.
