Controversy Trailing, Trump Heads For Israeli-Palestinian Talks

The King David Hotel was notably the target of a 1946 bombing by Zionist militants that left 91 dead and 46 injured.

Among the cargo already delivered from the United States are bullet proof glass to be installed in the president's hotel suite.

Bannon, who has been observed as the man in the White House who represents the interests of the president's base, is heading the effort to convince Trump to fulfil his embassy campaign promise.

In order to prevent explosives-laden cars from ramming the hotel, two buses full of heavy equipment will be placed at the entrance to the main road.

Balloons floating above the hotel will watch for suspicious activity and bomb-seeking robots will roam in the sewers beneath the building.

Reports emerged last week that Trump's national security adviser H.R. McMaster twice refused to say whether the Western Wall is part of Israel, while American diplomats at the USA consulate in East Jerusalem told representatives of Netanyahu's office that the Western Wall was part of the occupied West Bank, and refused to hold talks with Israeli officials about arrangements for Trump's planned visit to the site.

"The fact that the global community is so obsessed with a Palestinian state a second Palestinian State beyond the one in Gaza is disappointing".

Israel's Operation "Blue Shield" will involve undercover police, special patrols, motorcycle officers, sniffer dogs and helicopters.

"Israelis have noticed that he's very interested in the Palestinians, too", said Philip Gordon, Obama's coordinator for the Middle East who's now a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Eyebrows went up because those views don't reflect the longstanding policy of the USA government.

But whether those views are realized or not will depend on the long-range diplomacy Mr. Trump is launching with Israel and major Arab states to shape a lasting agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

On Thursday, local media began reporting that a full-blown US airlift had begun. Around 30 C-17 transport planes with hundreds of tons of equipment on board have started to arrive, Jerusalem Post reported.

The sprawling security operation in Israel and the West Bank underscored the longstanding tensions in the region.

According to Israeli emergency services, some 48 Israelis have been killed and 608 wounded in attacks by individual Palestinians since August 2015 - the latest bout of violence.

"The president has made a general statement regarding his position and he hopes the Israeli government will take it into consideration", the White House official told Haaretz in a report published Sunday. "The US embassy said you can't do that". "People tend to look at this stuff as basic protection that they can see, but what they don't see is that 90 percent is underwater".

The president's entourage will include his wife Melania, daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner. The UN Security Council Resolution 242 also calls for Israel to withdraw from all territories the Jewish State captured in the Six Day War, including East Jerusalem, Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today that Jerusalem will always be the capital of the Jewish state, speaking ahead of a visit by US President Donald Trump. Prime Minister Netanyahu's bold and visionary outreach to Sunni Arabs on the basis of TTP: Terror, Technology and Peace, is completely in sync with President Trump's vision of how good vs. evil will ultimately win the day. USA flags are flying alongside Israeli ones at Ben-Gurion International Airport, outside Tel Aviv. Trump is now planning to visit without being accompanied by any Israeli officials, though there has been speculation over whether that could change.
