U.S. embassy to move to Jerusalem in May

HonestReporting contacted the IBT to point out that Jerusalem is Israel's capital where its government, parliament, president and supreme court are located.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked President Donald Trump for his decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem in May, to coincide with Israel's Independence Day.

The ministry summoned Ambassador Donovan after the US Department of State issued a statement on Friday, revealing its plans to open a new embassy in Jerusalem.

"This is one of the very wrong policies of the United States for which it will pay dearly in the future", he said, adding, "Given the imprudence we see in United States decisions, there is a need for a serious action in the Muslim world".

Until now, the U.S. embassy has been located in Tel Aviv.

The US embassy is expected to be housed temporarily in the consular building in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem.

A Cure for Mass Shootings Doesn't Exist
The information was not handled appropriately, however, the top US law enforcement agency said, and no action was taken. From what we know about the alleged perpetrator in Florida , so far, he satisfies almost every one of these.

President Trump's decision provoked protests in the Muslim world.

Safadi said, "We must also make sure that UNRWA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) continues to deliver its vital services to millions of refugees across its five areas of operation". A private donor would open up Israel and the USA to severe criticism, especially when it is from a Jewish donor, a Trump donor who is heavily invested in Israel. The other countries which supported the U.S. were Togo, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Marshall Islands, Guatemala and Honduras.

A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said: "This decision represents a serious violation of worldwide law and applicable UN Security Council resolutions, more specifically UNSCR 478. It signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process as well". Former US president Barack Obama was "frustrated" with Israel's new settlements but Trump has taken a U-turn.

That debate was settled weeks ago - earlier this month, foreign affairs critic Erin O'Toole referred to the party's support for Jerusalem as the capital during a conservative conference in Ottawa.

In the aftermath of Trump's announcement, the Tories had found themselves scrambling to define their policy on Jerusalem, as neither Scheer nor the party had taken a public position on the issue. Erekat added that the decision to move the embassy on "Nakba Day" of all days, which is considered a catastrophic day for the Palestinian people, was a provocation to the sensibilities of all Arabs and Muslims.
