by Geoffrey Grider

The Israeli government considers it extremely likely that US President Donald Trump will declare in the next few days that he recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and that he is instructing his officials to prepare to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, an Israeli TV report claimed Wednesday.

“In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.” Zechariah 12:8 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: President Trump has stated many times privately over the past few weeks that he does not want to sign off on another 6 month extension of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. Israel is buzzing that he is planning to start the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem within less than a week. Will he or won’t he? Seeing as this is the whole reason why God allowed him to be president, I think he will but we shall see. 

The Hadashot news report came a day after US Vice President Mike Pence said Trump was”actively considering” moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.

“In Jerusalem, there is a very high expectation” that Trump will declare that he “formally recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and instructing his team to actively prepare to move the embassy,” the Hadashot news report claimed. It said this declaration was expected within days, and possibly as soon as Sunday.

There was no official confirmation of the claim from Israel or the US.

The TV report came after Pence addressed the embassy issue Tuesday in a keynote address at an event in New York commemorating the 70th anniversary of the UN vote for partition of Palestine, which led to the creation of the State of Israel.

“President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Pence told the gathering of UN ambassadors, diplomats and Jewish leaders, hosted by Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon.

The UN General Assembly on November 29, 1947 passed a resolution adopting a plan on partitioning British-mandated Palestine to establish a Jewish state. Of the 56 members of the UN at the time, 33 voted in favor, 13 against and 10 abstained, enabling the establishment of Israel the following year. In keeping with Jewish tradition, the celebration was held on the eve of the historic date.


“Israel didn’t need a resolution to call for its existence, because its right to exist is self-evident, and timeless,” Pence said. “While Israel was built by human hands, it’s impossible not to see the hand of heaven here, too.”

The US vice president received a standing ovation from the audience at the Queens Museum, site of the original United Nations vote in 1947. source

Jordan’s King Abdullah warned on Wednesday against moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, asserting that doing so at this stage “would have implications on the Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim scene, and would threaten the two-state solution.”

According to The Jordan Times, Abdullah, speaking on Wednesday during a meeting in Washington with US lawmakers including House Speaker Paul Ryan, claimed that “there is no alternative to the two-state solution.”

He said that the peace process between Israel and the PA must be given a chance to succeed, such that “moving the embassy must come within a comprehensive solution that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem [sic] as its capital, living side by side with Israel.”

He also claimed that an immediate move “could be potentially exploited by terrorists to stoke anger, frustration, and desperation in order to spread their ideologies.”

Speaking on Tuesday at an event hosted by the Israeli mission to the United Nations to mark the 70th anniversary of the historic United Nations General Assembly vote on Resolution 181, endorsing the establishment of a Jewish state, US Vice President Mike Pence had said that the president is “actively considering” moving the embassy, calling it a matter of “when and how.”

“President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Pence said.

Channel 2 reported on Wednesday that Senior officials in Jerusalem assessed that President Trump is expected to authorize the relocation of the embassy within days – before his administration presents its plans for a regional peace deal.

The sources claimed that Trump has resolved not to renew a waiver allowing the embassy to remain in Tel Aviv.

The White House later pushed back on the reports, however, saying that reports of an imminent embassy move are “premature.”
