the good news of The “definitive agreement” for peace in the middle East, Donald Trump preached during the election campaign has become a chimera sleeping in the drawers of the White House. The president of the united States itself that fulfilled what promised, a year ago, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the jewish State in a rollover to seven decades of consensus diplomat on the status of the Holy City. Israel occupied in 1967, the eastern part, which includes the sacred places of the walled enclosure, and the annexed 13 years later despite international condemnation. This is precisely the urban sector in which the palestinians aspire to establish the capital of their future State.

The kick to the status quo that had been respected by all presidents americans after the birth in 1948 of the jewish State has ruined the mediating role of Washington to the leaders the palestinians, who have broken all the relations with the Administration, Trump, and has rekindled the conflict in the Gaza strip, hibernated after the war that devastated the enclave in the mediterranean four years ago. The coincidence of the israeli Government is more conservative in recent history, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, with the presidency of the U.S. most favorable to the interests of Israel seems to have dissipated the hopes for a resumption of peace negotiations between the two parties, which have been paralysed since April of 2014.

The “corpum separatum” –as defined by the UN, the international status of Jerusalem by approving the establishment of a jewish State after the partition of historic Palestine under british mandate– is now a capital “eternal and united” to Israel. The over 300,000 palestinians who Makrobet live there, a third of the population, only have a residence permit in his hometown.

The rupture with the U.S. has already been performed in particular in the closure of the representation of Organization for the Liberation of Palestine in Washington and in the disappearance of the Consulate General of the united states in Jerusalem –considered both embassies informal– as a means of pressure to president Mahmoud Abbas to resume the contacts. The cancellation of the economic contribution made by u.s. to the UNRWA, the Un agency for palestinian refugees, has also helped to increase the tension between those who depend on foreign aid to survive, as 80% of the residents of Gaza.

The last may 14, Trump also met its commitment to move the u.s. Embassy from Tel Aviv, where they settled until then all the other diplomatic missions to the Holy City, in a measure which was only finally be made and seconded by Guatemala. While the discontent palestinian emerged with warmth in the west bank and east Jerusalem, in the Gaza Strip –where two-thirds of its population are precisely refugees– there has been an outbreak of protests on the israeli border, which reached its peak at the same date, with the death of 62 protesters by shooting the troops. More than 230 palestinians have been killed, in front of two people in Israel, over nearly nine months of conflict has not declared that it has been on the verge of degenerating into a new open war.

The strategy of the old property tycoon – exert pressure on those who refuse to accept the terms and conditions in the business– is pointing, however, to results adverse to israeli interests. The isolation of president Abbas threatens to impair the coordination, the security forces of the Palestinian Authority remain with Israel, the key to preventing attacks in the west bank and East Jerusalem, home to more than 600,000 jewish settlers. The popular mobilization on the border of Gaza, meanwhile, has returned to political prominence to Hamas, which controls de facto the coastal Strip from 11 years ago. The islamist movement, which just a year ago was willing to return the Government of the enclave to Abbas, is now negotiating a permanent ceasefire and the economic reconstruction of the territory thanks to the mediation of Egypt.
