Arab states to seek recognition of East Jerusalem as Palestinian capital

The New York Times said that it has obtained audio recordings of Egyptian intelligence officer, Capt. Ashraf Al Kholi, urging TV hosts to promote a "quiet acceptance" of Trump's Jerusalem decision.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday, 20 Teves, that he "completely agrees" with President Donald Trump's critique of the United Nations agency aiding Palestinian refugees, saying that UNRWA only perpetuates the problem and should cease from operating in the region.

Donald Trump of the United States of America had on December 8 recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Where is the "appreciation" and "respect" in United States statements on Palestinians? "They don't even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel".

However, in a tweet last week, the American president said "we have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table", seemingly contradicting his prior remark.

Ingram, who scored 26 points against the Spurs on Thursday, left the game in the second quarter after tweaking his left ankle. The Lakers go on a three-game road trip, starting with the Dallas Mavericks on January 13 at 11:00 A.M.

Citing three Western diplomats who asked to remain anonymous, the reports said the grant was due to be delivered on January 1 and that the amount frozen is one-third of the U.S. annual funding to UNRWA.

Israel's Foreign Ministry openly tried to convince the USA not to cut funding to UNRWA. Other refugees throughout the world receive aid through the UN Refugee Agency under the auspices of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

In any case, the Palestinian problem is just one of those that motivate U.S. diplomacy in the region, and if measured by the amount of money that Washington invested in supporting its authorities, is several positions down the ranks of the allies Key to the United States in the Middle East.

"I fully agree with President Trump's strong criticism of UNRWA", Netanyahu said at the start of Sunday's cabinet meeting.

For his part, Abul Gheit said that the goal of Saturday's meeting was very helpful and another one will be held at the end of this month.

Egypt continues to struggle to contain threats from a variety of regional foes, including the Palestinian militant group Hamas, Iran, and scattered ISIS militants in the Sinai Peninsula, a strip of land that links northeastern Egypt to southern Israel.

The agency sources told the paper that there is concern than funding for education would be the first to be cut, since cuts to food, health, and infrastructure aid would directly endanger lives.

Israel has long viewed the United Nations agency, known as UNRWA, as biased against it, an allegation the agency strongly denies, saying it is only providing necessary services to Palestinians.

"We have specific requests, the most important of which is the recognition of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital according to the June 4th 1967 borders". Since then, it has been promoting the Palestinian cause, funding as many as five million "refugees" - the majority of whom never left the homes where they were born in the Gaza Strip, Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem or Arab countries - to the tune of $1.23 billion annually.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will meet with EU's foreign ministers on January 22 in Brussels, during which he is expected to ask them to recognize the Palestinian state on the territories occupied by Israel in 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
