Netanyahu: Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem Would Not Harm Peace Process

"The things published on Fox New are a lie", the prime minister's office said in a statement Monday, according go the Jerusalem Post.

Netanyahu said that "not only would moving the embassy not harm the peace process, but to the contrary". "It will advance it by righting an historical wrong and by shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel".

There are ongoing rumors and undertones that it is the Israeli administration, and not the White House, which is delaying the move.

Trump promised during his presidential campaign to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel's capital and remarked on the pledge in an interview the day before his inauguration, saying: "You know, I'm not a person who breaks promises". Palestinians and most of the global community regard all or part of East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The statement from Mr. Netanyahu's office concluded: "This is the clear and consistent position of Prime Minister Netanyahu, which he reiterated today".

Trump would be breaking with strong tradition if he does not attend the shrine and lay a wreath for Holocaust victims but neither the White House, the State Department or the Israeli Embassy in London were unable to confirm with IBTimes UK that he will be paying his respects.

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

She eventually finds Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, at a New Jersey golf course. "Sean, come on, I would never do that", says "Trump".

The US, like most of the global community, considers Jerusalem disputed ahead of final-status negotiations.

Netanyahu is reportedly pushing to deliver a joint speech with Trump at Masada, another historical site in Israel, rather than just the introduction he is now slated for.

Channel 2 reports, as noted by the Times of Israel, that a Trump aide then angrily told Israelis that the Western Wall was part of the West Bank, which is governed in part by the State of Palestine.

June 1 is the expiration date on the presidential order, last signed by President Barack Obama, freezing implementation of the 1995 United States law calling for the move of the embassy to Jerusalem. The report said the Americans rebuffed the request, with one official telling the Israelis the site is "not your territory".

Adelson disagrees with the notion the embassy move should be tied to progress in the Mideast peace process, sources informed Axios. "The embassy - the PM supports moving it", a summary of the Oval Office meeting read. "It makes many of us - who are hoping for a change in U.S. -Israel relations - nervous", Foxman, the current Director of Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, told Jewish Insider "I can not believe that the traditionally pro-Palestinian functionaries in the American Consulate in Jerusalem are making the decisions on the Kotel and Jerusalem". He has also accepted an invitation to visit Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

Friedman headed straight to the Western Wall to pray from the airport, calling it "the holiest place in the entire Jewish world".
