Posted on 03/25/2019 3:00:06 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Honduras announced plans to move its diplomatic mission in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, opening a new embassy in the Israeli capital city.
President Juan Orlando Hernandez made the announcement Sunday, during the 2019 American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington DC.
Speaking at the opening meeting of the conference, Hernandez said his country would immediately open an official diplomatic mission in the Israeli capital city.
"Honduras will immediately open our official diplomatic mission and this will extend our embassy to the capital of Israel, Jerusalem."
The Hernandez government had previously floated the possibility of moving the Honduran embassy to Jerusalem in exchange for the upgrading of Israels diplomatic mission to Honduras from a consular level to a full embassy.
The cost of maintaining a full-fledged embassy has been estimated at one million dollars a year.
Once Honduras embassy move is completed, it will join the US and Guatemala as the only three countries with full-fledged embassies located in the Israeli capital.
Paraguay, which had initially followed the US and Guatemala and moved its embassy to Jerusalem in 2018, later moved its diplomatic mission back to Tel Aviv.
Other countries, including Brazil, Australia, and the Czech Republic, have suggested they may also relocate their embassies to Jerusalem.

Good for them. I think I will visit Honduras...now. Summer of 2019.
If the U. S. Embassy is there, others will want to be there to do business.
Trump is da man...
Under Obozzo we were viewed as the biggest p*ssies in the world.
Now we are leaders who are respected , who are followed.
Don't drink the water. I did.
and don't leave the hotel.
Be very careful. Honduras is one of the most dangerous countries in the world. some parts are nice but most others are not.
Zechariah 12:3 King James Version
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
I think the dividing line is only going to increase. It’s just a guess but it will be interesting going forward.
This kind of stuff will make a few people not happy.
We are definitely in the season.
