Palestinian deaths associated with the United States moving its embassy in Israel to occupied Jerusalem should be a warning to others considering a similar move, the head of the Arab League (AL) said on Monday after the body called an emergency meeting on the issue. In response, America's U.N. Ambassador, Nikki Haley, made a veiled threat, pointing out the US contributes more money to the U.N. than any other country, and promising the USA would remember where countries fell on the embassy vote. These are considered illegal under global law, although Israel disputes this.
Trump, in a recorded message, said he remained committed to peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

"Jerusalem is a Palestinian territory, and according to global law, Jerusalem should be under worldwide law until both parties agree to divide it into (two) capitals or what", said Jamal Hamed, president of the Association of Palestinian Arab Canadians.

The Trump administration has said the embassy move does not aim to prejudge Jerusalem's final borders.
Last December, Trump announced his decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem, making it official that the USA recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State. "It'll last as long as it lasts".
"Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response", White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters, adding the United States did not believe the opening of the embassy or the latest violence would affect its peace plan.
That time, by all accounts, is not now.
