Netanyahu: Moving US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem Will 'Advance' Peace

But US national security adviser H.R. McMaster suggested on Friday that Trump could move closer to the two-state principle when he meets Abbas, saying the US president will express his desire for "self-determination" for the Palestinian people. "On the contrary, it would advance it by correcting an historical injustice and by shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel", Netanyahu said this morning. He said Israel must oppose attempts to establish a Palestinian state and insist on Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem "forever".

After stopping in Saudi Arabia, Trump will visit both Israel and the Palestinian territories, in a bid to strike the Israeli-Palestinian deal that has eluded his predecessors. The administration has distanced itself from that assurance and instead has taken a wait-and-see approach as Trump attempts to restart peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Senior officials in Washington are pressuring US President Donald Trump not to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital or announce a move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem when he visits next week, CNN reported Monday.

Some even called for the end of the idea of a Palestinian state.

"The transfer of the American Embassy to Jerusalem not only will not harm the peace process, but the opposite", Netanyahu said in the statement on Sunday. He has yet to make any concrete moves toward carrying out that promise.

Tornadoes in Wisconsin, Oklahoma leave 2 dead
Just north of Chetek, in Barron County, many were busy Wednesday cleaning up, and reflecting on what they experienced Tuesday. Two persons were killed and dozens injured after tornadoes and severe storms swept through several U.S. states.

Binyamin Netanyahu insisted on Monday that he had asked President Donald Trump to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, highlighting a potentially explosive point of contention with the Americans just a week before the U.S. president is due to make his first visit to Israel.

The site has been politically controversial, as it is located in Jerusalem's Old City, which was under Jordanian control from the founding of Israel in 1948 to 1967, when it came under Israeli control following the Six-Day War. "It's part of the West Bank", the Times of Israel reported.

Visiting the Wall: According to a report by Israel's Channel 2, the US advance team rebuffed a request from Netanyahu's team to accompany Trump while he visits the Western Wall.

"We have had so many plans and it didn't work".

The new United States ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, departed from diplomatic protocol by visiting the Western Wall on Monday.

"I pledge to you to do all that I can to strengthen and enhance the relationship between our two great nations", he told Rivlin.

On the campaign trail, Trump voiced solidly pro-Israel positions.

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi and Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat reiterated their demand for a Palestinian state alongside Israel with East Jerusalem as its capital, and "commended Trump's commitment to working for a solution to the conflict", according to Jordan's state news agency Petra.

The new US Ambassador, David Friedman, just arrived in Israel and his first visit was to the Western Wall where he said he "prayed for the president". While Trump has articulated support for peace between the two sides, he has yet to explicitly endorse the creation of a fledgling Palestinian state, or join the global consensus supporting a two-state solution.
