Trump, Pence effigies hanged and burned in video on Palestinian TV station

Such decisions are also considered to show a bias against the historical and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem, which have been guaranteed by the relevant worldwide resolutions and have received the recognition and support of the global community, the statement said.

On January 14, Abbas denounces White House peace efforts as "the slap of the century" and charges that Israel has "ended" the 1993 Oslo peace accords on Palestinian autonomy.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that such unilateral decisions are contrary to the internationally-legitimate resolutions will not change the legal status of the city of Jerusalem as being under occupation.

Back in the US, Daniel Seidemann, a prominent Israeli attorney who founded the NGO Terrestrial Jerusalem, hit out at Pence on Twitter for allegedly representing an "end of days evangelical cult" which is influential in the US and Israel but alien to the true Jerusalem.

"I think that Israel and Canada have shared a strong bond, a great friendship throughout history, and I think it is a just step, and the right step, and I would love to see Canada move its embassy as well", she said.

On Sunday, while hosting a dinner for Pence, King Abdullah told his guest that the time has come to fix the unfortunate damage that has been caused by the decision of the United States president on Jerusalem. There has also been a surge in rocket attacks from Gaza, and Hamas, the terror group which rules Gaza and seeks to destroy Israel, has called for a new intifada to liberate Jerusalem and urged Palestinians to confront soldiers and settlers.

However, an informed Arab diplomat in Cairo said that Pence was not willing to move an inch to accommodate Arab concerns as voiced by the Jordanian king.

KEITH: No. Vice President Pence has said repeatedly that he would like to meet with Palestinians while he's here, but they aren't really interested in meeting with him.

This, the diplomatic source suggested, is not a small threat because it is unlikely that the Europeans would pitch in to cover the financial drop that the PA would suffer as a result of such a financial reprimand. It is no exaggeration to say that if Israelis could unilaterally choose anyone in the world to be president of the United States, Pence would be on their short list.

"I would say that the positions that Pence made clear in Israel today, and those that had been demonstrated by Trump before, show one thing - that this administration cannot be expected to offer anything that could amount to a possible re-launch of the peace talks", the Palestinian official said.

MCEVERS: OK, so we hear some applause there, but how was this received?

"Peace can only come through dialogue", he said.

Sharren Haskel, a Likud member of the Knesset, said Canada could further strengthen its ties with Israel by moving its embassy to Jerusalem. And they would still support a two-state solution if that's what the Israelis and the Palestinians would support.

"We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you in the battle against radical Islamic terrorism", Pence told Rivlin.
