Palestinians strangle, burn cardboard cuts of Trump and Pence

America's planned move of its Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, concluded the Saudi diplomat, is as null and void as the Israeli occupation, and will cause tension in the whole Middle East.

KEITH: No. Vice President Pence has said repeatedly that he would like to meet with Palestinians while he's here, but they aren't really interested in meeting with him.

The protest, which took place in Aida refugee camp at the northern entrance of Bethlehem, comes following Mike Pence's visit to Israel on Tuesday, where he met with the Israeli president, Reuven Rivlin, and Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu, and addressed the Israeli Knesset.

Pence also said the United States will stand with Israel against Iran, calling Tehran's government the "leading state sponsor of terror", and urging changes to the 2015 nuclear deal.

"Well, this is the bottom line: Pence, contrary to the expectations - or let us say the weak hopes - of some Arab officials, was not in the region to try to reverse the mishap caused by the reckless decision of Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US Embassy [from Tel Aviv] to Jerusalem". He considered it a great tribute to the Jewish people that someone like Vice-President Pence would turn to a Jewish source for guidance on such matters'.

Madison has been on death row for more than 30 years for killing a police officer responding to a call of a domestic dispute. Now on his second appeal, Madison argues his death sentence is unconstitutional because it was not given by a jury.

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 vice president thought it was critical to have his counsel for a speech of this magnitude'.

On Monday, Ayman Odeh, the chairman of the Joint Arab List, a grouping of four Arab-dominated parties that hold 13 of the Knesset's 120 seats, said: '[Pence] is a risky man with a messianic vision that includes the destruction of the entire region'. Despite the obsequious fawning of Israeli ministers and politicians over Trump, there is a hint of uncomfortable self-awareness amidst the pageantry. And they would still support a two-state solution if that's what the Israelis and the Palestinians would support.

And while Pence was in the region making promises of more rigorous USA 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. But as I said, it is controversial because Palestinians also have a claim on the city.

The rise in militancy was believed to be tied to Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on December 6. They had signs that said Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.

"The pageant Jerusalem [that] the world witnessed during the Pence visit was a meeting between a prominent leader of the "end-of-days" evangelical cult and its Israeli sister settler cult-cults that now dominate the governance of their respective countries", Seidemann wrote. This theological belief is behind many far-right American Christians' political position on Jerusalem.
