Theresa May To Challenge Trump Over Decision To Recognize Jerusalem As Israeli Capital


The UK’s Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called the move a ‘reckless threat to peace’

Jerusalem has been claimed by both the Israelis and the Palestinians as their rightful home.

Yahoo News reports:

Now, the Prime Minister has openly confirmed that she plans to ‘talk’ to Trump about the decision – which will also see the US Israeli Embassy moving to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

‘We disagree with the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before a final status agreement’, the Prime Minister confirmed in a statement.

‘We believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region. The British Embassy to Israel is based in Tel Aviv and we have no plans to move it.

‘Our position on the status of Jerusalem has been clear and long-standing: it should be determined in negotiated settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states.’

 She added: ‘We share President Trump’s desire to bring an end to this conflict. We welcome his commitment today to a two-state solution negotiated by the parties, and note the importance of his clear acknowledgement that the final status of Jerusalem, including the sovereign boundaries within the city, must be subject to negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

‘We encourage the US Administration to now bring forward detailed proposals for an Israeli-Palestinian settlement.’

 Her disdain at the move was backed by opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who branded it a ‘reckless threat to peace’.

‘Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, including occupied Palestinian territory, is a reckless threat to peace’, the Labour leader wrote on Twitter.

‘The British Government must condemn this dangerous act and work for a just and viable settlement of the conflict.’

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
