Embassy move 'disqualifies' USA as peace mediator says Palestine

It will happen after the United States.

But she told Haaretz that Israel is focusing on persuading them to recognize Yerushalayim as Israel's capital, as President Trump did, and not necessarily moving their embassies. While no hints of what that peace offer may entail have been released, Capitol Hill observers have suggested that Kushner would reveal the contents of a new deal in early 2018.

The U.N. General Assembly voted overwhelmingly Thursday to condemn the USA decision in a non-binding resolution.

A former president of Guatemala, Ramiro de Leon Carpio, who was in power 1993-1996, had made a decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem, but backtracked when Muslim-majority countries shut off access to Guatemalan goods.

The final route of Israel's Kotel metro project, according to the paper, will include a three-kilometer subterranean tunnel connecting the HaUma station with the wall, a holy site for Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike.

The Palestinian foreign ministry has called Guatemala's decision "shameful and illegal".

Past year an initiative to convert an already excavated area abutting the Western Wall into an egalitarian Jewish prayer section was hotly contested by Israeli archaeologists, who said such a move would cause irreparable damage to the historic remains of the ancient city.

Jerusalem was restored as the de facto capital of Israel after the Jewish people regained control of the city in 1967, for the first time in roughly 2,000 years.

The Western Wall train proposal will likely face opposition from the global community, which doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over east Jerusalem and the Old City, which Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed.

The tunnel would have two stations about 70ft below ground, "City Centre" and "Donald Trump, Western Wall", near an ancient expressway in the Old City's Jewish Quarter called the Cardo.

The result would link Jerusalem to Tel Aviv by high-speed rail.

Previous excavations by Israel near the holy site - the spiritual epicenter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - have sparked violent Palestinian protests.
