Does US believe Western Wall is in Israel?

President Donald Trump has decided not to immediately move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a senior White House official said, violating a campaign promise but avoiding a provocation that could drive Palestinians away from peace talks. "The US embassy and the other embassies ought to be in Jerusalem".

When two leaders of a Muslim Brotherhood-linked advocacy group lobbied Congress on May 3, they failed to disclose their open.

Part of the problem is that Trump has come under the influence of mainstream figures like McMaster, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. "But the buck does not stop with bureaucrats", he wrote. "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel". "The worldwide community's decision to cower before Israel's enemies by keeping embassies in Tel Aviv is disgraceful". U.S. diplomats defended this because the Western Wall is in the occupied Old City.

No country in the world has its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem since the status of the city remains disputed in the eyes of the worldwide community.

The letter, signed by about five dozen Christian leaders, was delivered this week to the president.

Since the announcement of the president's travel plans, there has been some speculation that he would use the occasion to fulfill his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Trump said in a speech to the American Israeli Political Action Committee conference in March 2016 that he would move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, calling it "the eternal capital of the Jewish people". "Many of our constituents cast their vote for you due to this commitment, '" the letter said.

The non-profit Liberty Counsel reports the letter calls for the move - which was directed by Congress in 1995 - to be made "at long last".

"He wants President Trump to move the embassy to Jerusalem and to try to get to a status quo between Israel and the Palestinians, to continue settlements". Another poll will be taken after Trump's Israel visit.

Reps. Tom Suozzi, D-N.Y., and Francis Rooney, R-Fla., marked the celebration by introducing a nonbinding resolution celebrating Israel's capture of the eastern portions of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War in 1967. Moving the American embassy there would be a de facto recognition of Israel's sovereignty in the area and would rebuff Palestinian claims.

Citing a White House official who spoke on condition of anonymity, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday that the White House believed that recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital "would not be wise at this time". "And so I think in large measure the president is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact a peace process".
