jerusalem - The decision of President Donald Trump to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, and officially call that city as the capital of Israel, leads to great anger in especially Arab countries.
Israel now considers both Western and East Jerusalem as its capital, after the country began building settlements in the east since the Six Day War. The Palestinians see the eastern part, now occupied by Israel, as their capital.
Trump himself is principled: 'Israel is a sovereign country and has the right, like other sovereign states, to choose its own capital. 'Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and put the US Embassy there' a milestone. '
