Trump to dive into Mideast conflict on first presidential trip

US presidents of both parties have repeatedly waived a USA law requiring the embassy be moved to Jerusalem.

Israel captured the Old City, along with the rest of east Jerusalem, in the 1967 Mideast war.

Trump also outlined his administration's efforts to create new economic opportunities for Palestinians through a "positive, ongoing partnership" between the United States and the PA "on a range of issues", including private sector development, regional security and counterterrorism.

A source close to the preparations team in Israel told Channel 2 that the statements made by the White House official were received with utter shock by Netanyahu's team.

He will meet Israeli and Palestinian leaders as part of his first foreign trip later this week.

Since taking office, Trump has backed away from his campaign pledge to move the embassy in a gesture to Israel, instead saying he's still studying the issue.

According to the report, top USA officials close to the president warned that the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital could have broad regional risks, echoing recommendations from leaders in the region, including Jordan's King Abdullah who warned Trump that an embassy move would have a negative impact on the peace process.

The new US Ambassador, David Friedman, just arrived in Israel and his first visit was to the Western Wall where he said he "prayed for the president".

North Korea Links Nuclear Advances to Hostile US Policy
Pollack said experts say the only one of these sites North Korea could potentially reach now is Hawaii, and that is a stretch. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that military action against the DPRK would be "tragic on an unbelievable scale".

The US official reportedly said Israel did not have jurisdiction in the area and that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not welcome to accompany Trump there.

Moving the embassy would likely indicate a change in USA policy towards recognizing Israel's claim to a united Jerusalem.

Netanyahu's office released quotes from summaries of the prime minister's meetings with Trump to back up its side.

Tillerson linked Trump's deliberations directly with his aspiration to broker peace in the Middle East.

There have been some signs that the Israeli government, while publicly supporting moving the embassy, has quietly raised concerns that doing so could enflame the political and security situation.

Fatah and Palestinian Liberation Organization officials have told CNN that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will attend an "Arab, Islamic, and American Conference" in Saudi Arabia next Sunday, an event Trump is also expected to be present at.

The new U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, departed from diplomatic protocol by visiting the Western Wall on Monday.

There were no further details about the security arrangements but the source added that the Palestinian security apparatus would oversee parts of president's visit as had been the case with previous trips by USA leaders to the the West Bank.
