Netanyahu insists he told Trump to move embassy to Jerusalem

Trump was right the first time: the USA embassy in Israel should be located in that country's capital, as it is, to my knowledge, in every other country in the world.

During his election campaign, US President Donald Trump promised to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, whose status is one of the thorniest issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"The statement that the Western Wall is in an area in the West Bank was received with shock", an Israel official said, according to Reuters. "It will advance it by correcting a historic injustice and by smashing the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel".

Israel considers all of Jerusalem as its indivisible capital, a claim that is not recognised internationally, and the Western Wall - the holiest prayer site for Jews - is part of territory it captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

The U.S. passed a law in 1995 mandating the relocation of its embassy, but since then every U.S. president has signed a six-month waiver delaying the move - citing concerns over national security. He said Israel must oppose attempts to establish a Palestinian state and insist on Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem "forever".

Known throughout Brazil simply as Lula, he was Brazil's most popular president during his tenure from 2003 to 2010. Leaving the court after 5 hours of deposition, Lula met with political allies in a rally in Curitiba.

It was not the first time a member of the Trump administration referred to "Palestine", which the USA does not recognize.

President Trump is scheduled to make the Old City his first stop after landing at Ben Gurion Airport on May 22.

President Donald Trump is widely expected to use his first foreign trip to give fresh impetus to Middle East peace talks.

He has also advocated moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

Israel's right-wing had placed high hopes in Trump's presidency following his pledges of ardent support for Israel and a commitment to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem.

Still, it has to be frustrating for Man U to know they're paying an agent almost as much as the player he represents. The best in the world is nearly always the goalscorer. "I think he has everything". "I don't see it".

Netanyahu's office released quotes from summaries of the prime minister's meetings with Trump to back up its side.

A Fox News reporter cited sources saying Netanyahu had asked Trump not to move the embassy now, leading the prime minister to issue an angry rebuttal.

Moreover, Tillerson's most ferocious promoters, such as James Baker, Condoleeza Rice, and others, long believed that America was right to try and impose a two-state solution on Israel and the Palestinians, instead of letting the two parties engage in direct negotiations.

Trump is to begin his first trip overseas as president on May 19, visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel (and the West Bank city of Bethlehem), and the Vatican before jetting to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels and the G7 summit in Sicily.

"We are convinced that this statement is contrary to the policy of President Trump ..." He has also accepted an invitation to visit Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.
