Palestinian Ambassador Threatens Trump Over Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem

Haaretz: The Palestinian ambassador to the US, Riyad Mansour, vowed the Palestinians “would ‘make life miserable’ for the United States” if Donald Trump moves the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Aides to President-elect Donald Trump reportedly warned outgoing President Barack Obama against 11th hour ‘new adventures’ on Palestinian issue or other major foreign policy moves. The Times of Israel picked up on Politico‘s scoop.

Trump, for one, has made it very clear he will support Israel and its preferences. A post-election statement by Trump’s advisers on Israel said, “A two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians appears impossible as long as the Palestinians are unwilling to renounce violence against Israel or recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.”

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev visited Israel to push for direct Israeli-Palestinian talks hosted in Moscow. Medvedev also signed agreements on agriculture, customs, high-tech and more. His visit kicked off with a politically incorrect visit to the Western Wall.
