Slovakia Becomes Latest Country to Move Embassy to Jerusalem

Slovakia will open a cultural embassy in Jerusalem for now. But that appears to be a prelude to a larger move.

“Slovakia is on its way to relocating its embassy to Jerusalem,” Head of the Slovak National Council Andrej Danko told Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the visiting delegation of Slovak lawmakers announced the Eastern European country would open a cultural center in the Israeli capital.

The move, when it materializes, would mark a break from European Union policy on Jerusalem. Slovakia would join the Czech Republic and Bulgaria as the other European Union member states to expand their diplomatic presence in the city since US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

There is a groundswell in Eastern Europe and South America. Those are also the regions where Israeli diplomatic outreach has been at its most effective over the years.

In June, Bulgarian prime minister Boyko Borisov visited Israel and while visiting Jerusalem, told Benjamin Netanyahu that he appreciated Israel’s desire for the international community to recognize Jerusalem’s status as Israel’s capital, adding that he would seek to move his own country’s embassy to the “eternal capital of the Jerusalem”.

Slovakian Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini’s decision was reached after Speaker of the Israeli Knesset Yuli Edelstein called on Slovakia to follow their neighbors from Czech Republic in committing themselves to Jerusalem by opening an honorary consulate in the city.

Yes. Amazing! Good moves for us, too. Israel is a powerful ally in some ways.

Imagine locating an embassy in a nation’s capital. What a novel idea.

Yes, in the ancient nation’s capital. But the so called “Palestinians” deny the reality of that.
