Trump doesn't plan to use Israel trip to announce embassy move

Trump doesn't plan to use Israel trip to announce embassy move

Ron Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the U.S., claimed that moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem "will cause [Palestine] to understand that Israel will be here forever with Jerusalem as its capital", cited by the Times of Israel.

Both Israel and the Palestinians consider Jerusalem to be their capital.

Crosby, Murray provide lift to Penguins; series tied at 2-2
The Ottawa power play, despite chances, again proved futile, at times so much so that the crowd loudly booed the final moments. A late goal by Maatta on Anderson, and certainly one he'd like to have back, gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead after the first.

"The Republican National Convention's official 2016 platform rightly stated, 'We recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state and call for the American embassy to be moved there in fulfillment of USA law". Given the competing claims, the US and most countries maintain embassies in Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem.

President Donald Trump has decided he will not announce plans to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem during his trip to Israel next week, two administration officials told CNN Wednesday. "The AJC believes that the American embassy belongs in Jerusalem". Moreover, we were honored and grateful that you pledged to specifically uphold this policy in response to a request from the American Christian Leaders for Israel coalition during your campaign.

Staver, who will arrive in Israel the same day as the president, will lead a team of Christian college students from 30 schools as part of the Covenant Journey outreach.

Trump campaigned on a pledge to move the USA embassy in support of Israel, but has since backed away from the promise, particularly after Palestine observed that the move would imply a prejudice on the part of the United States and hinder Washington's ability to broker peace between the two countries. But by adhering to the same discredited policies that don't recognize that Jerusalem is Israel's capital and that for the first time in history the city's holy places are open to all faiths, Trump is going to get the same disastrous results as Obama. His decision is sure to put a damper on his highly anticipated visit to the Jewish state next week - just a couple of days ahead of Jerusalem Day, when Israelis will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War.

Despite a strong start, City lost in the League Cup fourth round, FA Cup semifinals and Champions League last 16. Of the current City players, only Joe Hart and captain Vincent Kompany have been there longer.

Despite the warnings from the all corners of the United States foreign policy establishment, some of Trump's aides, including the President's chief strategist Steve Bannon, urged Trump to make good on his campaign promise and make a bold announcement during his visit to Jerusalem next week. "Most certainly", she says.
