Palestinians say Trump decision 'gives peace a chance'

The Tel Aviv regime, however, has refused to return to the 1967 borders and is unwilling to discuss the issue of al-Quds. "But, as he has repeatedly stated his intention to move the embassy, the question is not if the move happens, but only when".

It says that despite the disappointment, Israel appreciates Trump's friendship and his commitment to moving the embassy to Jerusalem in the future.

However, the law allowed the president to sign six-month waivers if it did not serve the national interest to move the embassy.

Known to Jews as the Temple Mount, the mosque compound is one of the most sensitive flashpoints of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and is the scene of frequent disturbances. But the president pleased many in Mr. Netanyahu's right-leaning coalition by abandoning automatic support for a Palestinian state unless both sides agree.

Palestinian sources reportedly conceded that Trump blasted Abbas for his incitement to terror, notwithstanding PA claims to the contrary.

When the United Nations officially recognized the State of Israel in 1947, it also sought to designate Jerusalem "corpus separatum", or an global protectorate, apart from the Arab and Jewish states being created between the Jordan River to the east and the Mediterranean to the west.
