Does US believe Western Wall is in Israel?

President Donald Trump speaks during a bilateral meeting with Kuwait's Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, Sunday, May 21, 2017, in Riyadh. The sensitivity about Jerusalem, claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians, stems from the role the city plays in the age-old debate about who has a legitimate historical claim to disputed territory.

Analyst Ghaith al-Omari said the idea seemed to involve "key Arab States - Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and other U.S. allies - into a regional process that would create, as Trump called it, a "bigger canvas" for reaching peace".

The Prime Minister's Office was reportedly concerned the measures would face opposition from Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett, who was said to be working to dissuade other cabinet members from backing Netanyahu's plan.

Palestinian factions in the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah have called upon the Palestinian people to partake in a "Day of Rage" on Tuesday, during the planned visit by US President Donald Trump to the occupied Palestinian territory.

With American President Donald Trump's upcoming visit to Israel, a lot has been made of the USA moving its embassy to Jerusalem.

Trump is still planning to visit the Western Wall, and will be accompanied by the on-site rabbi, not Netanyahu. The official wasn't authorized to comment by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

In 2012, NYC driver wanted to kill cops
The New York Police Department said the driver drove along the sidewalk for at least three blocks, hitting pedestrians as he went. Friends of a man suspected of plowing his vehicle into pedestrians in Times Square say he'd been going through a rough time.

And yet on February 2, two weeks before Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington, Mr. Trump made it clear he would not condone unfettered building in the West Bank.

White House aides have played down expectations for significant progress on the peace process during Trump's stop, casting it as more symbolic than substantive. The US leader "will convey his administration's eagerness to facilitate an agreement that ends the conflict, and he will urge Palestinian leaders to take steps that will help lead to peace", McMaster informed the media.

The Trump team knows pressure tactics when it sees them, Levy added.

Trump advocated during his campaign breaking with decades of precedent and moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a prospect deeply alarming to Palestinians.

"We will strengthen security ties, which are strengthening daily, and we will also discuss ways to advance peace", he said.

The main reason for Israel's disquiet relating to Mr. Trump's visit is his growing personal desire to oversee a comprehensive peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. Fink explains his take: "Trump suddenly gets along very well with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas".

Pay tribute to law enforcement officers by flying flags half-staff
The event was part of National Police Week . "We had a terrorist group come into our town and terrorize out community". US President Donald Trump lit the White House with blue lights honouring slain police officers, the media reported.

The new USA ambassador to Israel David Friedman, who took up office on Monday, has also backed the move.

Both stand on an elevated plaza Jews refer to as Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, and the location of an ancient Jewish temple. Later, during the March visit of U.S. Special Envoy for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, Netanyahu was surprised by a U.S. request to hold construction in isolated settlements in the West Bank. As the nation's envoy to the United Nations, her public comments on foreign policy issues generally are assumed to be statements of US policy.

The holiest site where Jews can pray, it is in the Old City of east Jerusalem, which Israel occupied in 1967 and later annexed in a move not recognised by the global community.

The last round of peace talks, led by then-President Barack Obama and his secretary of state, John Kerry, fell apart in 2014.

The last US president to visit Israel was Barack Obama, who came to the country shortly after he started his second term in 2013.
