Time is running out, but he can save the day. His task is simple: recognise Jerusalem as Palestine’s capital as well. Such recognition should also acknowledge the indivisible link between Jerusalem and Jews, Christians and Muslims. Such recognition will undoubtedly jump start a regional and global desire to create Arab-Israeli peace.

A US embassy in Jerusalem can be an embassy for two nations. Diplomatic norms need not apply. Indeed, they should not. For centuries, my Arab-Muslim family has been the guardians of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, for believers the tomb of Jesus Christ. Mr Trump can resurrect the dream of making Jerusalem a city of peace and for peace, not only for Jews and Arabs, but for everyone.
