EU, Arab League Insist That Jerusalem Must Be ‘Joint Capital’


European Union and Arab League countries insist that Jerusalem must be the joint capital of Israel and a future Palestinian state, as the U.S. prepares to move its embassy there in a step angering the Arab world.

Speaking after talks Monday between EU and Arab League foreign ministers, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the “special status and character of the city must be preserved.”

She said the two blocs also “see eye to eye” that there can only be a two-state solution to the conflict, with Israel and the Palestinians living side by side in peace.

The talks come as Washington prepares to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to a scaled-down, temporary facility that will open in Jerusalem in May.



  1. “EU, Arab League Insist That Jerusalem Must Be ‘Joint Capital’” What kind of joints are these idiots smoking?

    Amman (Jordan) is actually the capital of Palestine. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

  2. PSalms 83 Clearly say how Ishmael and Edom Plot TOgerhter to Erase the name of Israel and a prayer by KIng David that this united Enemies of the Jews and their G-d Disappear As Smoke.
    It is WELL KNOWN it is DANGEROUS for Jews to go into Palestinian (Gaza AND Ramallah) controlled areas where even accidentally straying soldiers and children get heavily attacked by mobs!
    It is also well known the Palestinian Authority actively incites to kill Jews even rewarding the killers with cash payments!
    Given this FACT it can not be where Jews go that Palestinians may have self rule as that would lead to blood shed – Sadly.
    Only under Israeli control is there free access to all Faiths!
    So there ought not be no “MUSTS” – EXCEPT that the Palestinians become CIVILIZED and THEN maybe we can get to the next stage for them.
