Trump to keep Israeli embassy in Tel Aviv

Trump to keep Israeli embassy in Tel Aviv

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. The official wasn't authorized to comment by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the poll, conducted by Smith Research was released on Thursday and found that only 56% of 500 Jewish Israelis who were polled said they considered the Trump administration more pro-Israel than pro-Palestinian.

Danny Yatom, another ex-Mossad chief, said that if the reports were true, Trump had likely caused "heavy damage" to both Israeli and American security. Israel's defense minister tweeted about his country's "deep, significant ties" with t he U.S.

Trump appears to have shared the information without Israel's consent, which would mark a severe violation of the confidentiality of their intelligence-sharing agreement. Israel has looked to Trump as a close ally but there has been growing apprehension over his unpredictability.

The trip is Trump's first outing overseas as president and it will include the announcement of a US arms deal with Saudi Arabia, Saudi investment in USA infrastructure and the establishment of a center to combat Islamic extremism in Riyadh, the official said. Trump is still planning to visit the Western Wall, and will be accompanied by the on-site rabbi, not Netanyahu.

Human rights will not take center stage at his meetings. That distinction between Jerusalem and Israel reflects the US position that the city's fate is an issue for Israelis and Palestinians to work out through future peace negotiations. "I think President Trump will come here and get a feel of what united Jerusalem is really like and I am convinced that he will see that the city belongs to the State of Israel and that our demand is legitimate and important".

The reunification anniversary is "the right time for the USA to correct this historic injustice", said Susan Michael, the director of ICEJ's U.S. branch.

"I am not real sure what happened with that issue", she added.
