Bolton: Recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel 'enhances the chances for peace'

"Two states means a Jewish state with an Arab component, a Palestinian state living in dignity side-by-side with Israel", Graham said.

In honor of President Trump's historic decision to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem, the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club will be changing their name to Beitar Trump Jerusalem.

Trump announced in December his decision to keep a campaign promise to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and began the process to move the U.S. Embassy there.

In addition to the controversial embassy move, Palestinians will also commemorate annual "Nakba Day" ('The Catastrophe' in Arabic) on May 15, the day following the embassy move.

Bolton said Sunday that relocating the embassy from Tel Aviv will "make it easier" to eventually reach a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, even though the region is bracing for large protests.

Meanwhile, Israel warned that its army will harshly respond and strike on Hamas infrastructure all over the Gaza Strip, in case of masses of demonstrators who try to cut the fence of the border and infiltrate into Israel, according to Israeli media. You have Hamas controlling Gaza, Palestinian Authority controlling the West Bank, Gaza is a rocket-launching factory against Israel.

"I think we're all very happy and excited to be participating in such a historic event", Mr Friedman said.

Netanyahu on Sunday praised Trump's "bold decision" in upending decades of US policy by relocating the embassy from Tel Aviv and recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israel says it has a right to defend its border and has accused Hamas of using the protests as a cover for attacking it.

In Jerusalem, dozens of foreign diplomats are expected to the attend the opening of the new mission, set on the site of the U.S. consulate, although many ambassadors who oppose the move will skip it.
