Shocker: Russia recognizes ‘West Jerusalem’ as Israel’s capital

April 6, 2017

Russia’s Foreign Ministry shocks the world by declaring West Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel.

In a statement released today by its Foreign Ministry on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Russia took the unusual step of removing ambiguity about its stance on West Jerusalem.

After explaining that it is “deeply concerned” about the absence of active negotiations between Israel and the Arabs on the creation of an Arab state in Judea and Samaria, Russia spelled out its stance on Jerusalem.

“We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” read the statement.

Few nations have made such a declaration, with most preferring to leave the status of the entire Holy City to negotiations.

Israel has yet to respond to Russia’s statement, perhaps because a positive reaction could be read as a tacit approval by the Jewish state for the first part of Russia’s statement, in which East Jerusalem is said to be the future capital of an Arab state.

Russia’s statement also called for both sides to avoid “unilateral moves that undermine the potential for an internationally accepted solution” and referred to “the Palestinian and Israeli people” as both having “friendly relations with Russia.”

The unexpected statement concludes with Russia promising to, “focus on ensuring free access to Jerusalem’s holy places for all believers.”

I would NOT trust the " Russian's " as far as I could throw them.

This " West Jerusalem offer " as the Capital of Israel, buy only if " Palestine" gets " East Jerusalem " as " Its " Capital, is mind boggling ridiculous' and basically childish stupidity.

For a start ALL of " Jerusalem " belongs solely to the Jewish people , who built Jerusalem as " THEIR" Capital thousands of years, and not only that the South Syrian Arabs ( aka faux Palestinian's ) did NOT exist as a ethnic race or people.

Also the " West Bank " ( Judea and Samaria ) which was illegally occupied by the Jordanian's in the 48 War, is also historical Jewish land for over 3500 years.

there is no West Jerusalem and East Jerusalem, there is only " Jerusalem " the eternal Capital of the Jewish people from the days of King David and King Soloman, and will be the the Capital of Israel and its " Jewish owners " for eternity.
