The United States as undisputed closed relations with Israel, even than European counterparts. The relations can be traced back to a long historical record rather than the current events around the world. As a result, the attainment of Israel independence in 1948 enjoyed full support of the United States. Once Israel declared its independence, President Truman of the United States was the first nation to grant de facto recognition to the new Jewish State 11 minutes after the proclamation. Since then, U.S. has offered undisputed assistance to Israel in security, economy and other financial aspects. On the other hand, such action did not speak well with Palestine claims to the disputed territory. Ironically, U.S. unilateral acclaimed mediator role for the two sides did not only contribute to the crises but further reflect bias and favor Israel course, while the current unilateral declaration of Jerusalem as a capital of Israel and the U.S. embassy relocation has pour more controversy to the future state of the Palestine. Simultaneously, U.S. has been generous to provide aids and assistances to several Muslim states. Having played such double standard, could U.S. remains the sole mediator between Israel and Palestine in resolving their disputes? The research offered overview of the logic behind the recognition of Jerusalem as a new capital for U.S embassy. The paper also examined the future of the two state solutions and whether the current situation will pave way for new players in the negotiation. It finally analyzed the proposed future solution of the conflicts.
