    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...

    Another diplomat working at the United States Embassy in Havana has been sickened by a mysterious attack, bringing to 25 the number of personnel who have fallen ill there, the State Department said on Thursday. The case was the first confirmed in Cuba since August and could suggest that whatever caused the illnesses in late 2016 and the first part of 2017 had started again or was continuing. Complicating the situation for officials was news this spring that at least one diplomat at a consulate in Guangzhou, China, had experienced symptoms almost identical to those reported by diplomats in Havana....
  • Jerusalem a factor as Ecuador minister beats Honduran for UNGA presidency

    Honduras's support for US embassy move thought to play role in Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garces winning contested vote and becoming only fourth woman to head General Assembly The UN General Assembly on Tuesday overwhelmingly elected Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garces as its next president, making her only the fourth woman to lead the 193-member world body in its 73-year history. She defeated another woman — Honduras’ UN Ambassador Mary Elizabeth Flores Flake — by 128-62 with two abstentions in the secret-ballot vote. Honduras’s and Ecuador’s diverging stances on a resolution condemning the US for moving its embassy to...

    Robinson was sentenced to 13 months imprisonment for “contempt of court” after attempting to livestream outside a trial that had been restricted from media reporting. Ten months was attributable to the livestream, and an additional three came from a re-activated suspended sentence from a previous attempt to film a child rape case. British reporters were temporarily banned from reporting on Robinson’s case, but the ban was later lifted. Flowers Left at British Embassy The American activists left flowers on the British flag “for the innocent girls, the victims of these brutal gangs that are rolling rampant through the UK and...

    On Monday, at President Donald Trump's direction, the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem opened its doors to great fanfare, fulfilling a long-term promise made by numerous U.S. presidents and supported by a vast majority of Congress in 1993. The move proved popular among Israeli Jews as well, according to a new poll. A full 93 percent of Israeli Jews support the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of them said they support not only moving the embassy, but doing so now. Another 20 percent said they support the move, but disagree with the timing. They suggested...

    President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner — both White House advisers — led the United States delegation in Jerusalem, Israel on Monday for the opening of the new U.S. embassy. Alongside the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara Netanyahu, Ivanka announced the opening of the embassy which was revealed by the drop of a curtain. “Today we dedicated the new US Embassy in Jerusalem – a longtime promise to the American and Israeli people,” Ivanka wrote on her Instagram.....In true Ivanka fashion, she donned a pair of pearl earrings to top off...

    At least three of the 41 Palestinians reportedly killed Monday in clashes ahead of the Jerusalem opening of the U.S. Embassy to Israel were “armed terrorists” caught trying to plant a bomb near the Gaza border fence, Israel's military said. More than 35,000 protesters amassed at a dozen locations, with many engaging in skirmishes .... 41 people so far have been killed in Monday’s violence, and at least 772 have been wounded. The relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv, a key campaign promise of President Trump, has infuriated the Palestinians, who seek east Jerusalem as a future capital. “Moments...

    The United States has hammered another nail into the “coffin” of the 1947 UN Partition Resolution that called for the internationalization of Jerusalem.The Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, the Philippines, Guatemala, Honduras, Bolivia, and various other countries are considering to follow in the footsteps of the United States.The Christian evangelical sector of American voters was what finally clinched Trump’s resolve to transfer the embassy from Tel Aviv and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.The “price” Israel will pay appears to be continued restraint in construction and an occasional building freeze in Jerusalem.The embassy will open in west Jerusalem, with...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country rejects the move of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, adding that the U.S. has “lost its role as mediator” in the Middle East in the process. “With its latest step America has chosen to be a part of the problem, not a solution, and lost its mediator role in the Middle East peace process”, Erdogan told the Chatham House global affairs think tank on Monday. “We are rejecting once again this decision which violates international law and which is against UN resolutions,” he said. ‘President Erdogan vigorously defended Turkey’s...

    Four U.S. Senators addressed members of the press at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Monday morning, hours before the official relocation of the U.S. embassy — and all four were Republicans. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Dean Heller (R-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Mike Lee (R-UT) made the trip, along with ten Republican U.S. Representatives — but not one Democrat joined the U.S. delegation for the embassy event. Only former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) — who was the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000 before being rejected by his party in 2006 for his support of the Iraq...

    Ex-Senator, Joe Lieberman will be the sole and only Democrat, Jew to attend the opening ceremony of the USA Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel today. No Schumer, No Wasserman Shultz, No Sanders, No Schiff, No Blumanthal, No Wyden, etc. They all must be like their Ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama.....not big fans of the state of Israel. Sad day for American Democrat Jews, who have coldly turned their backs on their thousands of years holy God's religion, history and heritage. As for me, God Bless America, God Bless Israel, God Bless POTUS, Donald J. Trump, and may God Almighty make Israel &...

    In but a few moments ancient prophecies will be fulfilled and veritable truths realized when the United States moves its embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem. It will also be a day when we will remember the strength and courage of the man who made it happen: President Donald Trump. Over the past decades the United States Congress was sincere when voting overwhelmingly to relocate our embassy from Tel Aviv, Israel’s largest city, to Jerusalem, Israel’s dedicated capital. It made sense; after all, every country in the world decides the location of its capital and embassies are located in those capitals....

    Associated Press ^ | May 13, 2018 6:14 AM | Karin Laub and Mohammed Daraghmeh
    Monday’s opening of the U.S. 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 festive inauguration helps harden Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ rejection of Washington as a future mediator in the conflict with Israel, likely ushering in a prolonged period of diplomatic vacuum in which other powers are unwilling or unable to step up as brokers. Such paralysis and loss of hope have been major drivers of Palestinian unrest. Underscoring the conflict’s volatility, thousands...

    President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to Make America Great Again is apparently going international. With the expected opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli and American flags are being displayed on several main streets. But the flags are not alone, as signs have popped up as well declaring “Trump, make Israel great,” and “Trump is a friend of Zion.” While many of the president’s critics panned his decision to go ahead with moving the Embassy, Trump is being praised in Israel as a friend and ally. Not only is Trump Making America Great Again, he’s making the...

    Citing its opposition to "unilateral moves", the leftist Meretz faction will not attend next week's festive opening ceremony for the US Embassy in Jerusalem. "I really want to see all the embassies in Jerusalem, and I want to see Jerusalem recognized by the world as the capital of Israel within recognized and safe borders. I want to see Jerusalem recognized by the world as the capital of Israel," Meretz Chairman Tamar Zandberg told the IDC Herzliya Conference on Thursday. "We simply can not celebrate unilateral moves whose potential for danger is so significant. " According to Zandberg, "Past experience shows...
