Following the U.S. and Guatemalan decisions recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announcing plans to move their respective embassies to the ancient city, other Central American countries, Honduras and Panama, have announced to the Palestinian Authority that they are following suit.
The news is a huge political victory for Israel and Israeli sovereignty over the Holy City. Just days before the announcement, the Czech Republic officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and in conjunction with Hungary helped block an E.U. resolution that would voiced opposition to Trump’s recent decision.
