U.S. government’s policy on Israel before presidential election November 1 19:40
Ahead of the U.S. presidential election, the U.S. government is moving to make President Trump’s policy of being close to Israel a fact, and the Palestinians are opposed to it.
With the presidential election in mind, U.S. President Trump has promoted Israeli-oriented policies, such as recognizing Jerusalem, which is attribution to Palestine, as the capital of Israel and forging the relocation of its embassy, and announcing that settlement activities on the occupied West Bank will not be seen as a violation of international law, in an order to gain the support of Christian evangelicals who value support for Israel.
Against this end, the U.S. State Department issued its first passport last month, allowing American nationals born in Jerusalem to change their passport’s place of birth from “Jerusalem” to “Israel.”
The U.S. government also agreed with Israel last month to lift regulations that could not be invested to support academic research in the West Bank.
In response to these developments, the Palestinians have been strongly opposed to the violation of international law.
As for the U.S. government’s progress at this time, Israel’s leading media, Harletz, said it was “prepared for the Trump administration to end by any chance.”
With the vote in the U.S. presidential election just around the corner, the U.S. government is likely to aim to make policy a fact that doesn’t go back, regardless of the outcome.
