Palestinians burn effigies of Trump, Pence

Palestinians burn effigies of Trump, Pence

Pence, the same source said, asked his interlocutors during the Arab legs of his tour to remind Abbas that if he insisted on rejecting the U.S. vision for a settlement of the Palestinian cause, and if he was to fail to check popular Palestinian resentment against the Trump administration, then the head of the PA needs to be prepared for a serious withdrawal of United States financial support, not just for the PA but also for agencies providing help to the Palestinians, including UNRWA.

Before the "execution" protesters held up Palestinian flags and various placards, including one with pictures of Trump, Pence and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, all with "X" marks on them.

US Vice President Mike Pence on January 22 receives a warm welcome in Israel but his visit to the region is snubbed by the Palestinians.

Sacker told the Jewish Chronicle that the meeting "centred around how best to frame elements of the speech - in particular the biblical and historical connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel, and the American and Jewish stories".

On the first day of his visit Monday, Pence told Israeli lawmakers the United States would open its embassy in Jerusalem in 2019 - becoming the first foreign nation to open an embassy in the city in nearly four decades.

The official said: 'Rabbi Sacks has advised prime ministers and presidents for years.

He described Trump as "a political pyromaniac, a racist misogynist". Pence's support is neither transactional nor illusory, and thus Israelis wave off things that might give them pause with other politicians, such as Pence's deliberate ambiguity this week over whether or not the Western Wall is in Israel.

Snap falls after report Twitter is the latest competitor to copy Snapchat
Bloomberg's report stated that Twitter's goal with the new product is to cut down the number of steps to start sharing videos. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has called Snapchat a "very modern" app and even admitted that his own app can be confusing.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that such unilateral decisions are contrary to the internationally-legitimate resolutions will not change the legal status of the city of Jerusalem as being under occupation. There has also been a surge in rocket attacks from Gaza, and Hamas, the terror group which rules Gaza and seeks to destroy Israel, has called for a new intifada to liberate Jerusalem and urged Palestinians to confront soldiers and settlers.

And while Pence was in the region making promises of more rigorous U.S. support to Israel, Abbas was in Brussels, the headquarters of the EU, to appeal for strong European backing for a fair settlement of the Palestinian cause, rather than the one offered by Washington.

In Bethlehem, the city's Catholic Mayor Anton Salman said Pence's comments contradict his declared aim of helping Christians in the Middle East. "You proved that you are a true friend of the State of Israel and of Jerusalem".

A poll released last week showed support for armed struggle has nearly doubled among Palestinians in the last six months: Only 26 percent of Palestinians said they supported a peace deal, a staggering decline from 45% last June.

In the two days before, officials from 86 countries met at Al-Azhar in Cairo to discuss Jerusalem.

Seidemann was referring to a powerful fringe evangelical movement that believes Jesus only after Israel retakes Jerusalem.
