    U.S. delegation arrives in Jerusalem ahead of embassy move
    by Ziad Jaber, Paul Goldman, Lawahez Jabari and Alexander Smith / May.13.2018



    JERUSALEM — Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and other members of the U.S. delegation arrived in a tense Jerusalem on Sunday to celebrate the relocation of the United States embassy.

    President Donald Trump recognized the city as Israel's capital last year and pledged to move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

    That will officially happen Monday at a ceremony attended by Ivanka, Kushner and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The president will address the event via video message.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meanwhile said Israel would be celebrating Trump's decision.

    "President Trump promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and he did so. He promised to move the American Embassy to Israel and he is doing so. Of course we will all celebrate this day, a real celebration, tomorrow," he said at a weekly Cabinet meeting.


    The new embassy is opening in part of a pre-existing American visa-and-passport facility and will have an initial staff of at least 50, according to senior Trump administration officials previewing the highly anticipated opening. That includes Ambassador David Friedman's aides and U.S. consular officers already working at the site.

    Around 800 guests are expected to attend Monday's event. There will also be events on Sunday to celebrate the move, though many European nations who oppose the decision are expected to skip them.

    Forgive my ignorance but doesn't the U.S move its embassy to the western parts of Jerusalem, not the eastern part?

    I thought it was internationally accepted that the western part of Jerusalem belongs to Israel and the eastern part, the Palestinians?

    If so, isn't it an acceptable move?

    So, they are turning the consulate in Jerusalem into the embassy and they are turning the former embassy in Tel Aviv into a consulate.

    Did I get that right?

    I apologize if this has already been covered in this thread.

    Israel has created this special coin to celebrate the 70 years of Israel as an independent nation.

    Here's the previously posted info on the location of this provisional embassy until a permanent site is chosen to build a new building. Hope that'll help you get up to speed.
