’Israeli’ Minister: Trump’s Al-Quds Move Coordinated with some Arab Leaders
An "Israeli" minister suggested that Donald Trump had obtained a "green light" from Arab countries for his recognition of Occupied Al-Quds as the capital of the apartheid "Israeli" entity.
Speaking to "Israel's" Channel 10, Yisrael Katz, Minister of Transportation and the Minister of Intelligence, claimed the US administration had coordinated the move with Arab leaders prior to the decision, to ensure they would help contain Palestinian and Arab reactions.
Some Arab governments' reliance on American protection, Katz said, is a key factor determining the nature of their reactions.
Regarding Saudi Arabia's position on Trump's move, Katz claimed Riyadh would take into account "shared security interests with "Israel"," particularly in relation to Iran.
Katz claimed that Trump's decision is "historical".
Donald Trump had informed several Arab leaders of his move a day before he made the announcement on Wednesday.
Arab leaders have since issued strong warnings and called an emergency meeting of the Arab League, but made no mention of any specific steps against the move that has already sparked protests across the Middle East.
The purported deal is said to have been discussed between Trump's son in law Jared Kushner and Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.
