At Arab Summit, China’s Xi calls for End to Israeli Settlements and Quick Establishment of Palestinian State With East Jerusalem as Capital

Again, China is taking positions here that have been never been pushed by the U.S. or from which Washington has retreated before the Israel lobbies. That East Jerusalem should be the capital of a Palestinian state that will be quickly brought into being, that Israel should cease sending in squatters to steal private Palestinian land for their squatter-settlements and should cease ruling the West Bank in a unilateral fashion — all of these are principles that the U.S. State Department has acknowledged in the past but on which the U.S. has proved fickle.

Symbolically speaking, nothing could underline the growing closeness of China to the Arab countries more than these frank and straightforward endorsements of the Palestinian cause by Beijing.
