sheldon adelson and his court right wing evangelical base whom the president needs now move them ever as his popularity ratings plummet throughout the day the president briefed the regional leaders which led to this question at the state department briefing i'm wondering if you can say that the that he's gotten the support of anyone for any decision that he might make so again i'm not going to characterize those conversations minutes later the white house press secretary was similarly callie about the decision i'm not going to get ahead of the president's remarks that he'll make tomorrow to say other than israel which thinks that this move is twenty two years overdue that all of the feedback he's been getting from world leaders is overwhelmingly negative so no again he spoke with five leaders that's hardly indicative of everybody across the globe mr president the fifth fleet of the president called was the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu israeli politicians have welcomed trucks decision jerusalem the israeli mayor of the city

over the weekend that the president's middle east envoy. is pushing saudi backed a plan that gives israel formal control of all of jerusalem it appears that drums announcement on wednesday will be in keeping with the direction of his administration's emerging middle east policy she average hands the al-jazeera washington all news of the possible move has angered palestinians in the occupied west bank dozens of protesters gathered outside the church of the nativity in bethlehem they set fire to posters with donald trump's image our position the position of the president is very clear and. this is going to be moved to jerusalem this is again. this is this would be unacceptable. if this. would complicate things. with an obstacle to the peace process maybe it will be the end of the peace process
11:06 am
. from this decision. well let's go live to our reporters standing by for us in the occupied west bank but first let's go to harry falsities outside damascus gate in occupied east jerusalem i suppose really what we are waiting for is reaction from the israelis to this potential statement late for the day. yes and within that what we're really waiting for is reaction from the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu now it just so happens there is a diplomatic conference being held by a major israeli newspaper the jerusalem post here in jerusalem on this day and we're expecting benjamin netanyahu to be among the speakers he's expected to speak in about an hour's time so that could potentially be his first official reaction to all of the indications that are been coming out of washington in recent days and more particularly on tuesday we also have had reaction from other israeli
11:07 am
politicians the marriott jerusalem thanking the americans from the bottom of his heart the transport minister saying that the recognition of jerusalem as the israeli capital would be more important even than the moving of the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem on the other side in israeli politics the meretz party leader a left wing party leader is saying that it risks an explosion and the possibility of moving this embassy but certainly from the israeli right we're already having a welcoming noises of this decision what we're really waiting for is to hear exactly what benjamin netanyahu has to say. every action has an equal and opposite reaction what sort of consequences are we seeing on the ground where you are. well you saw that fairly minor protest in bethlehem last night but i as you were reporting earlier there is this call for three days of rage. people here in east jerusalem of course have fresh in their memory the street protests over the al aqsa
11:08 am
mosque compound when a mass movement saw israel reverse a decision over installing metal detectors there so there is recent mass protest already in this city it could well be that we see more of the same if and when this announcement comes later tonight obviously the weather so far may dampen some of that we have had reaction though from the joint listy the palestinian members of the knesset the leader of that group of politicians calling trump a pirate maniac bent on setting fire to the entire region so that is an indication of how israeli palestinians are likely to view this war for the mobile leave it there with you have come back to you through the day well there has been of course strong global condemnation and concern about the intended me of at least a dozen leaders and organizations have a voice strong opposition to the plan here they are saying it would destabilize the middle east and contravene international law there are many voices that have been
11:09 am
speaking out could use mr trump jerusalem is a red line for muslims. we will follow the struggle to the very last moment with determination and we could even go right up to cutting our diplomatic relations with israel. a way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of jerusalem as the future capital of the states so that the aspiration of both parties can be fulfilled. the council of ministers rejects this step and expresses its utmost concern regarding this step as well as the moving of the american embassy to jerusalem the iraqi government warns of the consequences of this decision on the stability of the area and the world ignoring the rights of palestinians and the arab and muslim world and other
11:10 am
religions. that are indications that the united states in the coming days with. capital by the way without consulting with the. consequences of the steps would have germany's position on the should remains unchanged the solution a did a silly and problem can only be found. between the two parties. is a co-founder of the electronic intifada he thinks the reality is that the us supports a palestinian state in name only. and if trump's announcement is what you know stud you out of thinking that the u.s. was an honest broker i don't know what to say to the u.s. policy is to aggressively assist israel in doing everything it can to destroy any prospects for palestinian self-determination or palestinian liberation and that the united states has had the assistance of the
11:11 am
so-called international community and the various arab regimes that are now complaining so loudly about this i think what they should be asking themselves is what have we been doing for all these decades while israel was busy. i mix in jerusalem building settlements expelling palestinians from jerusalem israel has been gradually encroaching on on the old city and on the muslim holy sites i mean fact you have this so-called temple movement funded by the israeli government whose open goal is to remove the unlock some mosque in the dome of the rock and rebuild the jewish temple and meanwhile the arab regimes which complaining about this move by trump a busy embracing israel the gulf states moving towards israel at
11:12 am
lightning speed and there and absolutely no position to complain about this well as all of the correspondent in ramallah in the occupied west bank can see we have had small large membranes for palestinians both on the ground and the politicians as well but we don't suppose they have to wait and see for the exact wording of what president trump says before they could really react. yes absolutely the wording will be very important even though palestinian officials are quite confident that in the end even though trump so far has only told president mahmoud abbas about his intention they're quite confident that actually that will happen they say that they do expect president trump to play on words maybe not use the word undivided. jerusalem the one that the israelis
11:13 am
use all the time maybe not underlined whether it's west or east east. they do say that in the end the result is exactly the same president mahmoud abbas. had issued a statement warning of the implications of such a move he also spent a lot of time on on the phone talking to world leaders from vladimir putin to pope francis trying to mobilize as much as possible leaders behind him and try to really have them maybe mediate with the president having him maybe rethink this move but actually as we stand now everybody is expecting that when that speech comes it will be quite clear what will happen next and what will happen next is as you said you know there's been three days of rage that have been announced so far it's quite calm here in the occupied west bank the weather is very bad that
11:14 am
announcement still hasn't happened but people are bracing themselves for very difficult times ahead and did a lot really just bring me to the mood in the west bank we got an inkling of what it was like with harry eight east jerusalem where these sorts of statements abated one of significant is this it takes time to sink surely time for people to decide what they want to say even whether talking to a correspondent with a microphone in your hand. it takes time and it also doesn't take time i mean i was speaking to some palestinians you know just walking around and people are anger but they're not surprised it doesn't come as a shock many would point out the fact that they never actually believed that the u.s. was an honest broker in the peace process that the u.s. was a neutral mediator and actually one young man told me actually let it happen we will react the way we want but at least it will be clear to the entire planet that do
11:15 am
you as is not an honest broker as we have been saying all along so yeah there is that sort of anger maybe not knowing what to do next how far things will go days that a lot of people you know they do explain spec certainly some turmoil some protests usually protest turn into clashes specially with the israeli military but how far that will go is something people are worried about well for but we'll leave that of course follow events with you. throughout the day thanks hala well still ahead here on al-jazeera. told only about three dollars. the desperate measures taken by refugees in greece risking their lives to enter other parts of europe. by the skyline of asian harbor or off the coast of the italian riviera.
