Palestine President To Shun US Vice President Mike Pence Over Jerusalem Move

Trump's second-in-command Pence 'unwelcome in Palestine': Fatah official

"It will be ordinary Israelis and Palestinians who will have to live with the violence", Mladenov emphasized in calling upon political, religious, and community leaders to avoid using any rhetoric that could promote further escalation.

Ahmed El-Tayeb now says the engagement will only take place if Trump reverses his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. He added that Jerusalem and its people will stand firmly against any trials to assassinate its identity or to falsify its authentic Arab history. "I'm not saying that they aren't, but I'm not aware of them".

That decision came a day after Egypt's top Muslim cleric, Ahmed Al Tayeb who heads Al Azhar, also scrapped plans to meet the United States vice-president over the "unjust and unfair American decision on Jerusalem".

Abbas' refusal to host Trump was confirmed by Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki before an Arab League meeting in Cairo.

Abbas asserts that Trump's decision will not change Jerusalem's long history, "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine forever, we believe in our national rights, and we will stand one united front to defend Jerusalem, peace and freedom".

Quentin Tarantino to direct upcoming 'Star Trek' movie
The strangest thing is happening in Hollywood now , with director Quentin Tarantino pitching his idea for a Star Trek film. That, of course, means more scope in terms of swearing/violence, but not something so usually associated with Trek .

The Coptic Church's announcement comes a day after one of Egypt's most influential Muslim leaders, the Imam of the Al-Azhar mosque, also threatened to cancel a planned meeting with Pence later in the month.

"There will not be a meeting with Pence". Trump spoke about the Pence visit in his speech Wednesday, with his vice president at his side, noting, "Vice President Pence will travel to the region in the coming days to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations".

The Turkish presidential source said Erdogan and Macron agreed during a phone call that Trump's move was worrying for the region and that Turkey and France would make a joint effort to try to reverse the us decision.

Following Trump's speech, in which the USA president recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and ordered the State Department to begin preparations for moving the U.S. embassy to the city from Tel Aviv, Abbas slammed the move and said the United States has ended its historic role as the key sponsor for Israel-Palestinian peace talks.

It is not the only snub Pence will endure on his upcoming trip due to Trump's decision.
