Jerusalem recognition was likely most memorable event of first year in office

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Argues with CNN's Jake Tapper about Moving Embassy to Jerusalem

"I think Jerusalem was a very big point".

Trump stated that while he knew he would go forward with recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital during his first year as president, he also understood why previous presidents had not.

"It was very important that I recognized Jerusalem as your attractive capital city", he told the newspaper's editor-in-chief Boaz Bismuth. Speaking to Israel Hayom's Boaz Bismuth, Trump explained that he was under pressure not to make the announcement but chose to follow through with his campaign promise. "The capital, having Jerusalem be your great capital, was a very important thing to a lot of people", he said.

"Friedman's recommendations and advice, which do not aim to achieve a just peace on the basis of worldwide legitimacy, are what led to this crisis in American-Palestinian relations", Abu Rdainah said.

In addition to East Jerusalem, Palestinians want the occupied West Bank for a future state and see Israel's Jewish settlements there as a major obstacle. [T] here were others who did not thank me. "The other presidents, all of them have failed in the promise even though they made it as a campaign promise but I understand it because I will tell you, the lobbying against it was tremendous".

Trump's December 6 Jerusalem declaration upended decades of USA policy and countered an worldwide consensus that Jerusalem's fate should be decided in peace negotiations.

Asked whether Israel will be asked to concede more to the Palestinians after Jerusalem was put "off the table of negotiations", as Trump himself said it was, Trump replied that both sides will have to compromise under an upcoming US-sponsored plan for a deal. The assailant fled the scene.

A liberal Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, published a column criticizing Friedman's stance and dubbing the settlement he had supported as "a mountain of curses" - a play on its Hebrew name, Har Bracha, which means "Mount Blessing".

Haaretz publisher Amos Schocken in response tweeted in defense of the opinion piece.

"As long as the policy of Israel that your Government and yourself support is obstructing (the) peace process. there will be more Shivas", Shocken tweeted.
