The hard stance that Trump has taken is starting to show fruit. This is HUGE. The whole article needs to be read.
Displeased with Palestinians, Arab states chart new Jerusalem policy – Israel Hayom, 2017/12/30
Fearing that PA-led moves in response to U.S. Jerusalem declaration will undermine its special status in the city, Jordan teams up with Egypt, Saudi Arabia to devise new policy • Official says Arab states fear U.S. will punish those who act against it.
Sources in Ramallah, Cairo and Amman told Israel Hayom that the decision to establish the committee was made after it became apparent that the Palestinian Authority’s efforts to counter Trump’s announcement had been ineffective.
“This is a super committee that is headed by the secretary general of the Arab League, and it effectively puts the Arab League in charge of the policy on Jerusalem, taking it away from the Palestinians.
“The Palestinians’ efforts to sway public opinion have been a complete failure, and as a result, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has created a rift between us [the Arab world] and Trump.
Referring to the non-binding U.N. General Assembly resolution calling on the U.S. to reverse its decision on Jerusalem, the source said, “Washington has made its views clear and said it would take action against those nations that voted against it at the U.N. General Assembly last week. Now, when it is clear Trump is indeed going to punish those that voted against the U.S., most countries are trying to cut their losses.“
Do you understand the shift that is happening?
1- Their temper tantrum didn’t work. They weren’t coddled – as has been the case in the recent past.
2- The adults over there are now understanding that Trump ain’t playing and are falling in line.
3- The Palestinian Authority is being put in the corner, while the adults try and clean up the mess.
This is what’s supposed to happen. And don’t underestimate that $285M cut to the U.N. That was a signal to them as well.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority has been disappointed that only several thousand Palestinians rioted in the wake of Trump’s Jerusalem proclamation. Officials in Ramallah have been particularly concerned by the weekly drop in the number of Palestinians protesters in the Gaza Strip and in Judea and Samaria.
The Palestinians’ doomsday warnings that the decision on Jerusalem would set the region ablaze have failed to materialize and the relative apathy on the Palestinian street has led to a mild response from the Arab world as well, particularly from the moderate Sunni states.
This is great news. Either they don’t care… or the funds of the leaders are drying up and they can’t pay people to fight… or they realize we are serious now. Whatever the case may be, the rank and file aren’t fighting against us, and the leaders have blinked and are changing their course.
