‘Jerusalem is like a wife, you can’t share it’ – Israeli debates Arab on RT
US President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that Washington will officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Trump said the American embassy will move from Tel Aviv to the ancient city which has long been contested by Israel and Palestine. After the announcement, huge protests broke out across the Middle East, including in the West Bank, Turkey, and Lebanon. Meanwhile, Israel has praised Trump’s decision. RT discussed this issue with Ahmed al-Burai, a lecturer at Istanbul Aydin University, and retired colonel Reuven Berko, Arab affairs analyst for Israel Today newspaper.
