Status of Jerusalem Sticking Point in Talks, Says PA Source

The status of Jerusalem is one of the biggest points of dissension in  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s “framework” that he failed to publicize before returning to Washington on Monday, according to an official in the Palestinian Authority.

“Negotiators for the PA disagreed with several of Kerry’s suggestions in the negotiations with Israel, especially concerning the future of Jerusalem, the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press.

He explained that Kerry’s proposal to note that there is a “Palestinian aim” at making Jerusalem the capital of a new PA state does not meet Mahmoud Abbas’ demand that it be explicitly stated that eastern Jerusalem would be the capital.

A Kuwaiti newspaper reported that the Palestinian Authority is considering allowing  an Israeli military presence in the  Jordan Valley  but that the PA also would deploy forces there.

  1. Don’t trust the U.S. They’ll betray you! :(

  2. Joe Khoury says:

    Let me see….. Israel is supposed to hand over tangible real assets (lands, property, cities etc) to the Palestinian authorities and thus enhance their political agenda which includes the destruction of the state of Israel in return for a promise by the latter of non aggression . And surprisingly the current US gov’t is advancing this unequal equation. Real land and assets for a worthless promise from a leader who is not recognized as leader by half the Palestinians in Gaza. Makes no sense! Giving away Gaza is a prime example of broken promises.

  4. The muslim arabs who call themselves "palestinians" clearly don't know the Bible (because mohammad wasn't keen on reading and believing the Bible and they are followers of mohammad). If they did know the Bible they would have realized very long ago that they have absolutely NO claim to Jerusalem. Jerusalem belonged to the Jews since AT LEAST 1 800 BC. So why must Israel give up Jerusalem? In Zechariah God said that His love for Jerusalem and Mount Zion is passionate and strong and that He is very angry with the other nations that are now enjoying peace and security. God was only a little angry with His people, but the nations inflicted harm on Israel far beyond His intentions. Therefore, this is what the Lord says : "I have returned to show mercy to Jerusalem. My temple will be rebuilt, says the Lord of Heaven's Armies and measurements will be taken for the reconstruction of Jerusalem". This is also what the Lord of Heaven's Armies said : "The towns of Israel will overflow with prosperity and the Lord again will comfort Zion and choose Jerusalem as HIS OWN" – so Jerusalem IS the capital of Israel, whether the muslims like it or not. There is no "palestinian", all of them is muslim arabs, so why don't they go and live in any other muslim state? It's because no muslim state in it's right mind want to have them as citizens
