Posted on 02/24/2018 7:30:59 AM PST by SunkenCiv
Israel is currently holding talks with 10 different nations over the possible relocation of their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely revealed Thursday... Hotovely told American Jewish leaders that Israel is currently engaged in talks with 10 different countries regarding the relocation of their embassies...
Hotovely also discussed the politicization of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), and the Palestinian Authority leadership's use of what Hotovely termed "fake refugees" as a political weapon against Israel.
"For the first time, the Israeli leadership is no longer willing to accept the idea of fake Palestinian refugees. Only this week in his speech at the UN, Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) spoke of 'six million Palestinian refugees' who were not born in Israel - six million people raised on the idea that they will 'return' to the State of Israel. This approach is certainly not leading us towards a peace process, but instead to perpetual conflict. The international community has for years ignored this 'demand to return', and it serves to eternalize the conflict. Therefore, anyone who seeks peace should stop supporting the idea of the refugees that UNRWA continues to espouse, and the demand for a return whose aim is the destruction of Israel."
The Deputy Foreign Minister expressed optimism regarding Israel's warming ties with nations around the world, including India and China.

Trump, take note: How Jerusalem went from hosting 16 embassies to zero
David B. Green
originally published on December 6, 2017
...there was a period in Israels short history when at least 16 states had their ambassadors stationed in the city. Three of them were African nations - Ivory Coast, Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) and Kenya; 11 were from Latin America - Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Uruguay and Venezuela, opening embassies as early as the 1950s; as well as the Netherlands and Haiti... The first blow occurred after the Yom Kippur War, when Ivory Coast, Zaire and Kenya all severed relations with Israel following a meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement in Algiers in September 1973. Though all three eventually restored relations with Israel - Zaire in 1981, Ivory Coast in 1986 and Kenya in 1988 - ultimately, their reopened legations were based in the Tel Aviv area. The remaining 13 states shuttered their Jerusalem embassies in 1980, following the Knessets passage of the Basic Law on Jerusalem, the Capital of Israel, which stated that the city would remain the complete and united capital of Israel.
Hope Trump’s family invested in real estate there as the prices are about to go up.
Jerusalem is less costly than Tel Aviv. Something like 90% of land in Israel is under government or quasi-government control.
The Lord God declared it so!
It matters little what others may say or do, nothing will change God is Sovereign!
All part of MAGA.
This is a classic plot formula. One courageous person does what “ought not be done” and then everyone else realizes that it can be done. Thus the Establishment loses its stranglehold, just like that.
Its control is based on the projection of power in order to keep the masses subjugated, but when openly exposed as fake...
Game Over. Trumped.
Once the mask is off, though, it stops playing nice. Of course then everyone *really* finds out how evil it is, and turns on it.
The racist bigots of the PLO's power is a house of cards. By the end of his first term he'll have the UN talked into eliminating UNRWA.
That would be amazing! And I don't doubt he can do that.
Now this is why President Trump is a world leader. He leads from the front as opposed to our previous president who led from behind.
