Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem Has Not Led to an Uptick in Violence

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Many claim that President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy there has increased violence and instability in the area. Four months after the decision, one can easily disprove this assertion.

In a video news item on Ynet, a former Israeli intelligence officer – in an article disseminated by a reputable Israeli think tank – claimed that Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has increased violence and instability in the area. In making this claim, the officer was repeating a charge made by Israel’s detractors on Iranian and Arab media sites.

An uptick in violence was indeed anticipated by EU officials and diplomats of member states who opposed the decision, as well as UN officials.

Four months after the decision was taken, this assertion can easily be exposed as a myth.

The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, probably the most reputable source of data on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has spent many years tabulating significant Palestinian terrorist attacks in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
