Israeli Parliament makes parts of Al Quds harder
The Israeli Parliament has approved a bill Tuesday that makes it more difficult to cede parts of Al Quds after a peace agreement with the Palestinians.Â The Palestinians condemn the proposal because it undermines every chance to resume the peace talks.
By law the number of members of the 120-member Knesset that must agree to parts of Al Quds to "a foreign party '', increased from 61 to 80. The amendment, which has long been in the pipeline, was adopted with 64 votes for against 52 votes against.
Nabil Abu Rdainah, spokesman for Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, described the change in the law adopted Tuesday as "a declaration of war on the Palestinian people".
As home to major Muslim, Jewish and Christian holy places is Al Quds one of the most sensitive issues in the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Israel says the entire city its "eternal and indivisible" capital, but the international community acknowledges that not.
The Palestinians want to make the capital's Eastern Al-Quds of their State on the occupied West Bank and in the Gaza Strip.
Last month the American president got Donald Trump International a storm to criticism over them because of the recognition of Al-Quds as the capital of Israel.
