Arab League Blasts Trump Plan to Recognize Jerusalem as Israelís Capital

CAIRO Ė The Arab League secretary-general on Wednesday decried President Donald Trumpís intention to recognize Jerusalem as the indivisible capital of Israel and move the US Embassy to the Holy City.

Ahmed Aboul Gheit spoke out hours before Trumpís scheduled speech on the issue.

The secretary-general said out that the manipulation of the status of Jerusalem was an unjustified provocation to all Arabs, both Muslim and Christian.

He also urged world leaders to petition the Trump administration to freeze what Gheit described as a disastrous step.

The Arab League said recently that US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel could completely destroy the peace process and pose a threat to security and stability in the region.

East Jerusalem, which the Palestinians claim as the capital of their future state, has been occupied by Israel since the 1967 Six-Day War.

Israel unilaterally annexed the territory in 1980, but the international community refused to recognize the claim.

Until now, no nation that maintains diplomatic relations with Israel has moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The transfer of the US mission to Jerusalem would be understood as the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the entire city, including the occupied part.
