Jerusalem soccer club seeks to change name to honor Trump

"I call on all countries to join the United States in moving their embassies to Jerusalem", Mr Netanyahu said, adding: "It's the right thing to do... because it advances peace".

The new US embassy in Jerusalem is set to open on Monday, coinciding with Israel's Independence Day.

He says Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jews for thousands of years, and any peace agreement will include Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

I am honored to join the distinguished delegation representing President Trump, his Administration, and the American people at this momentous ceremony commemorating the opening of our new US Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel.

The Palestinian Authority's leadership has effectively refused to speak to Trump's team since the move was announced, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is supposed to be spearheading a new drive for peace.

Monday's opening of the US Embassy in contested Jerusalem, cheered by Israelis as a historic validation, is seen by Palestinians as an in-your-face affirmation of pro-Israel bias by President Donald Trump and a new blow to dreams of statehood.

The event takes place at 7 p.m. Thunderbird Square (32388 Veterans Way) and is sponsored by UFV Amnesty International, UFV Greens, and UFV Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights.

Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of J Street, a liberal pro-Israel group in the USA, expressed concern that the embassy move would backfire.

The status of Jerusalem goes to the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Shortly after, the government approved construction of a $57 million cable auto system that will link west Jerusalem to the Old City. The Palestinian protests also mark the date as the anniversary of their "naqba", or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands of people fled or were forced from their homes during the war surrounding the event.

India's 'uncooperative' attitude, 'stubbornness' delaying Mumbai attacks trial, says Nisar
Pakistan's former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan (L) questioned the haste in hanging Ajmal Kasab. The Mumbai case is being tried in an anti-terrorism court since 2009 but the case isn't going anywhere.

The Israeli military said the crowd had grown violent and that troops were defending the border.

On Sunday, Hamas leader Ismail Haniya travelled to Cairo for talks amid speculation over whether Egypt is attempting to calm the situation. This year, Nakba day will also coincide with the start of the month of Ramadan, which usually sees a rise in clashes.

The Palestinians, who claim Israel-annexed east Jerusalem as their capital, are angered by the American move and have virtually cut off ties with the White House.

The timing of the embassy move has led to concerns about increased tension in Gaza.

Gaza Health ministry said in an official statement that 49 Palestinians were killed and more than 8,000 injured by Israeli army gunfire since the beginning of the marches. It expanded the municipal boundaries into the West Bank, increasing the size of east Jerusalem and annexing it to its capital, a move not recognized by most of the global community. Guatemala and Paraguay plan to move their embassies to Jerusalem later this month.

The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

John Bolton says moving the embassy from Tel Aviv is "a recognition of reality".

An Israeli man confronts a Palestinian woman at Damascus gate in Jerusalem on Sunday as Israeli settlers celebrate Jerusalem Day in the Old City.

The government of Jordan, the custodian of the site, sent a letter of protest to the Israeli foreign ministry condemning this as a "provocation by extremists", a spokesman said.
