Skip to comments.Swiss government: Trumpís Jerusalem policy is an 'obstacle to peace'
Posted on 12/09/2017 10:20:40 AM PST by Olog-hai
The recognition by the US of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is an obstacle to a fair and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians based on a negotiated two-state solution, the Swiss government said.
Reacting to US President Donald Trumps announcement on Wednesday, the Swiss foreign office said any solution in the Middle East must be based on a comprehensive negotiated agreement on the final status of Jerusalem that respects the rights and aspirations of all interested parties.
Switzerland does not recognize the authority of Israel beyond the 1967 borders and will work towards the establishment of a viable, contiguous and sovereign Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as capital and based on the 1967 borders, the Swiss government said.

Everyone knows where Israel’s capital is, including the arabs who live there. Trump didn’t say anything that wasn’t already known by anyone.
Speaking reality shouldn’t be anything controversial.
No. Islam is an obstacle to peace.
What a joke. There is been no movement towards peace by the Palestinians in at least 25 years.
There has never been peace there. There never will be.
It's questionable if peace was possible before Trump's action, so recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capitol hasn't changed anything.
How much of that Nazi Gold do the Swiss still have?
Is “peace” even in the muslim vocabulary?
Does everybody realize how stupid you have to be, to believe this reduces the chance for peace?
Nearly 70 years and the Arabs still refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist, but this inhibits the chances for peace.?
How do these people get elected. Just plain scary...
The primary obstacle to peace over there is the mohammedans’ insistence on killing everybody else.
Switzerland, Phhhht, They submit, don’t they?
They use to be neutral, now they submit.
Im fed up with other countries preaching to us about this matter. It is none of their bloody business. Nikki Haley should tell the world to shove it. Trump should tell Treasury to cease sending funds to ALL foreign countries.
Now I know why they call it Swiss cheese.
Right....Like Peace has been going along so well for the last 50 years.
What was the obstruction to peace prior to Trump’s policy?
The globalists are so transparent.
Mohammed is the obstacle to peace.
Maybe the Swiss are motivated by “Nazi Gold” or maybe its something else but deep, deep down in the German DNA a residual puddle of jew hatred is, in my opinion, alive and well.
The Swiss escaped major damage from the Nazi’s. So, like watch making, we know they are keenly adept at playing and “tooling” both sides!
