Over 90 percent of Palestinians oppose Trump move

"I think the sooner the Palestinians come to grips with this reality, the sooner we move toward peace", he added. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, as the capital of a future independent state.

"The President (Donald Trump) has asked Vice President Pence to go to the region to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations", Jarrod Agen, Pence's deputy chief of staff, said in a statement.

The French and Israeli leaders sparred verbally Sunday over the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, while new violence rippled across the region following the move by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The decision was "a major disaster for the Palestinian people, while the Palestinian's own rights have been taken away for a long time", said Septi, a student at the rally.

Haley suggested that fears of unrest over the Trump decision are overblown.

Because of those negotiations, the United Nations - whose Security Council, except for the US, of course, officially condemned Trump's announcement on Saturday - refuses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Two Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli security forces on the Gaza border Friday, and Islamist group Hamas said two of its militants killed in an Israeli rocket strike on targets in the Gaza Strip early Saturday.

The assailant was trying to enter city's central bus station with the knife and carried out the attack near a metal detector.

European Union leaders, including Macron, have reiterated support for establishing an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees live in Lebanon, including those who fled or were expelled from their homes after Israel's founding, as well as their descendants. Israeli media identified him as Yassin Abu al-Qarah, who posted on his Facebook page in recent days about Jerusalem, saying "our blood is devoted" to the holy city.

With few options for the Palestinians, and the Arab world preoccupied by other crises, Arab willingness to press the issue may be limited. Upon departing for a diplomatic visit to Paris and Brussels, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was prepared to respond to critics.

Or, more precisely, to end Jewish control of Israel and place it under Arab and Muslim rule. The residents, like many of Israel's Arab minority, sympathize with the Palestinians of the West Bank and often openly identify with them.
