"It is time for the US administration and members of Congress to end their practice of blackmail, extortion and threats against the Palestinian people and stop blaming an enslaved nation that is already living under a military occupation and suffering from deliberate and systematic acts of violence, colonialism and apartheid". USA and Israeli flags already adorn the area's street leading up to the United States consulate there. I hope that New Europe's embassies join us there shortly. Street-signs in Hebrew, Arabic and English have gone up.
European foreign ministers, while opposed to the U.S. policy shift, have urged Abbas to give Washington's peace plan a chance.
"I think we're all very happy and excited to be participating in such a historic event", Mr Friedman said.
The 25-year-old Israeli is anxious that the controversial decision will trigger new tensions between Palestinians and Israelis.
Others are less concerned about possible reactions.
"We're hard at work on it".
The name-change has not become official, according to the Post. The embassy will be either gradually expanded on the current premises or a new complex might be built. From 2006 until this week, the city didn't host a single foreign embassy. Israeli soldiers fired live bullets and tear gas volleys from the other side of the border fence. "Jerusalem today is more divided, less sustainable, more contested than ever before".
Beitar Jerusalem praised the president on Facebook. "So, we don't talk about it anymore".
Jada Pinkett regrets dating Will Smith while he was still legally married
Will and Jada , now married 20 years, would go on to have two kids of their own, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith . Pinkett Smith recalled. "His take was, 'That is Trey's mother, and that's just not your place'".
Tens of thousands of Palestinians are expected to surge the border fence between Gaza and Israel on Monday to protest the embassy move. Although most of the European diplomats have reportedly decided not to attend, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Romania were set to be represented at the event. Trump's daughter Ivanka will also attend. In 1967, Israel captured east Jerusalem, along with the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Furthermore, the move by our Central Europeans allies prove that President Donald Trump has been actually been playing "8-dimensional chess", as he has focused much attention on New Europe (e.g., the Romanian president's visit to the White House, Trump's visit to Poland, Hungarian ministers stating they prefer Trump to Obama) during the first half of his first term. "The Europeans have repeated on several occasions that they will not be able to resist USA sanctions", says Jafari, according to the conservative Fars news agency. "They are repeating history".
The moving of the embassy, a campaign pledge by U.S. President Donald Trump, has infuriated Palestinians, who view the eastern part of Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
The tunnel had reached just a few meters from the border, adjacent to Israeli communities, the military said. "Who is Trump to come and say Jerusalem is Israel?"

The fate of the city has been a central issue in years of intermittent US-brokered negotiations.
The opening coincides with renewed tension between Israel and Iran, that could turn into a full-blown conflict.
As well as the protests by the Palestinians, demonstrations are expected on Monday in other Arab capitals where governments have argued that the status of Jerusalem should only form part of a final peace agreement. Forty-two Palestinians have been killed and over 1,800 have been wounded by Israeli fire since weekly protests began on March 30.
In addition to the controversial embassy move, Palestinians will also commemorate annual "Nakba Day" ('The Catastrophe' in Arabic) on May 15, the day following the embassy move.
Needless to say, the Palestinian Authority had its own "strongly worded message" for the block.
