While Palestinians may hold demonstrations against the decision, and Arab leaders may condemn it, violent extremists generally have not rallied to the Palestinian cause, said Aaron David Miller, vice president for new initiatives at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

If there were opportunities they would have moved against Israel already, said Miller, a former U.S. peace negotiator.

"Al-Qaeda has left the Israelis alone through three Gaza wars, in 2008, 2012 and 2014," he said.
