New Jerusalem Train Station To Be Named After Trump

New Jerusalem Train Station To Be Named After Trump

On Monday, a deputy minister had said that Israel is in touch with "at least ten countries" over the possible transfer of their embassies to Jerusalem.

Katz said the decision was taken to honour President Trump's decision to consider Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

He proposed naming the station after Trump "for his courageous and historic decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital" earlier this month.

Citing scholars, Ziedan said that the structures of Al-Haram Mosque and Al-Aqsa Mosque were "on the road from Mecca to Ta'if" and that "neither we [Muslims] nor the [Jews] have anything to do with it".

"I have chose to name the Western Wall station... after US President Donald Trump for his courageous and historic decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel", said transport minister Yisrael Katz. "The announcement of the president and of the foreign minister was explicit that Guatemala would be immediately after the United States", Cohen said.

The United States and Israel mustered seven other countries to their side to vote no to the UN resolution.

Trump announced his decision to move the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in early December, a move that broke away from over 20-years of indecision from previous US presidents.

An overwhelming majority of United Nations member-states-among them are America's allies-voted to declare the U.S. proclamation null and void.

A total of 128 nations voted to maintain the worldwide consensus that Jerusalem's status can only be decided through peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.

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

"There has been no recent discussion, whether among relevant government agencies, or bilaterally with Israel or with any other country, on the location of the Philippine Embassy in Israel", DFA said in a statement.

"It won't happen tomorrow morning".

"We spoke about the great relationships we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the State of Israel".
