On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, an interview with Dan Diker Senior Project Director – Program to Counter BDS and Political Warfare at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Diker says that Trump’s announcement – that the US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital of Israel, was a well orchestrated move with the backing of Sunni moderates in the region. While countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and others may have outwardly protested the move, Diker says that in reality they understand that a united Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty for all eternity (especially Jordan) is in their interests. He adds that this week”s upsurge in terror violence isn’t because of Trump, but rather an excuse to initiate attacks against Israelis due to incitement emanating from none other than PA head Mahmoud Abbas and his supporters in the Palestinian Authority.
