Israel Expects President Trump to Move Embassy to Jerusalem Within Days

Israel Expects President Trump to Move Embassy to Jerusalem Within Days

Mr Pence said the only questions now are "when and how" to move the embassy despite the ongoing question of Palestinian and Israeli control of the holy city of Jerusalem.

"We are witnessing the articulation of Israeli positions, but through American mouths", said Shaheen, referencing the "Zionist" views of USA ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner. "Under our administration, America will always stand with Israel".

On Tuesday, US Vice President Mike Pence said US President Donald Trump was "actively considering" moving the embassy to Jerusalem, evoking a campaign promise that the administration had sidelined.

The report comes just a day after Trump's vice-president Mike Pence stated that the President was "actively considering" how and when to move the USA embassy.

"The president has also made clear that he intends to move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem".

On June 1, Trump shied away from what was a major campaign promise by signing a legal waiver that keeps the embassy in Tel Aviv.

According to the estimated motive for the decision now, sources have said that the President does not want to wait for a formal political plan of action to take shape because he does not want to have to again sign a renunciation of the plan to move the embassy.

Regarding the embassy move, Pence urged Israelis to be patient, but not to worry. Something which the reigning USA presidents have done for years.

Pence's pledge comes days before the December 1 deadline for Trump to decide whether to waive a 1995 law mandating moving the embassy to Jerusalem, which sources say that Trump will not renew.

"While Israel was built by human hands, it's impossible not to see the hand of heaven here too".

Palestinians say that moving the embassy would prejudge one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict - the status of Jerusalem - and undermine the US' status as an honest mediator.

Regarding the Iran nuclear deal, Pence said the Trump administration "will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons".

Meanwhile, Iranian officials continue vowing to destroy both Israel and the U.S. Despite those very real threats, Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon said Israel will continue to be "a light to the nations". The State of Israel, was born out of the 2,000 year old hope of the Jewish people to return to our homeland: to return to Zion, to Jerusalem.

The event was organized by the World Jewish Congress and the Israeli mission to the UN and was held in the Queens Museum in NY where the UN General Assembly met in 1947. But the vote in the UN, 70 years ago, gave Israel something very special: "a place among the nations".
