US Presidential Delegation Arrives in Israel for Embassy Dedication

Hamas called on people to keep sticking to their right of return and join the great marches on May 14 and 15, saying that rallies on Monday will also protest the US decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he won't give up any part of the city, while Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says Trump's policy shift on Jerusalem disqualified the a broker.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser believes that relocating the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem will "make it easier" to arrive at an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.

The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

"Big week next week when the American Embassy in Israel will be moved to Jerusalem".

It is being reported by Barak Ravid of Israel's Channel 10 news that Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania blocked a joint European Union statement criticizing the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

The Israeli army said on Sunday that it held Hamas accountable for anything in the Gaza Strip "and its consequences".

Israeli officials have speculated that more than 100,000 Gazans will attempt to breach the border with Israel.

The United States is opening its new embassy in Jerusalem on Monday. "We will pray for the boundless potential of the future of the US-Israel alliance, and we will pray for peace". Israel says it has a right to defend its border and has accused Hamas of using the protests as a cover for attacking the border. "Despite American and Israeli efforts to violate the status quo and the legal status of occupied Jerusalem, we will remain steadfast and resilient in the face of the belligerent occupier and continue the nonviolent struggle for freedom, independence and dignity".

In addition, "Tuesday is the day that's known as the Naqba or the catastrophe, when Palestinians mark the day that hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced from their homes or fled their homes", Stoffel said.

The 83-year-old appears politically weak and out of ideas, at a time when Hamas is seen as taking charge by leading mass protests against Israel. No Israelis have been injured.

According to a post on Beitar Jerusalem's Facebook page, Jerusalem had waited long enough- 70 years to be precise- for global recognition, and President Trump was the one to finally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

No other countries have their embassies in Jerusalem with diplomats kept an hour away in Tel Aviv - so as not to show support for rival claims to the Holy City.
