Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, forge ahead with moving US Embassy

Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, forge ahead with moving US Embassy | 05 Dec 2017 | President Trump on Wednesday will order the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, senior administration officials said, a move that fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives but one that could inflame tensions across the Middle East. The U.S. would be the first country to move its embassy to Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians. Other countries who have diplomatic relations with Israel keep their embassies in Tel Aviv. But the embassy move would not be immediate and could take at least three or four years.
