"Any American declaration of recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – if there is one – would mean total destruction of the peace process," senior Palestinian Authority advisor Mahmoud Al-Habbash told reporters on Saturday. "The whole world will pay a price for any change or harm to the political reality of Jerusalem."

President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday and direct the State Department to begin the process to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. As it would take a long time to shift whole embassy setup to new place.
"It seems clear now that the physical location of the American embassy is not material to a peace deal. It's not an impediment to peace and it's not a facilitator to peace," one senior administration official said. "After having tried this for 22 years, an acknowledgment of reality seems like an important thing."
Another senior administration official said Trump "came to the judgment that this was both the right time and the right step to take specifically with respect to his hopes that a peace can be achieved," but offered no further specifics.
But if still Donald Trump does not take his words back there is no uncertainty that he himself want to put an end to Peace talks.
