Israeli minister decides to name Western Wall train station after Trump

Indonesia condemns Guatemala for Israeli embassy move Israel in talks with '10 countries' on moving capital to Jerusalem

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said the United States can no longer be a fair broker in the peace process.

The tunnel would have two stations about 70ft below ground, "City Centre" and "Donald Trump, Western Wall", near an ancient expressway in the Old City's Jewish Quarter called the Cardo.

Israel wants to name a train station after Donald Trump to thank him for recognising Jerusalem as its capital, Transport Minister Israel Katz said in a statement on Wednesday.

Ikrema Sabri, a senior Muslim cleric in Jerusalem, on Wednesday denounced an Israeli government plan to dig a railway tunnel under Jerusalem's Old City, passing near sites holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims - and ending at the Western Wall with a station named after US President Donald Trump.

The post Israel set to build "Trump station" near Western Wall appeared first on Vanguard News.

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




Congress passed a law in 1995 that ordered the USA embassy to be located in Jerusalem, but every US president since the mandate became law made a decision to delay it, arguing that a relocation must come through negotiations, not a decree. Tzur even suggested he would consider inviting Trump to the opening of the park in April 2018.

"There will, of course, be disagreement and dissent regarding this announcement", Trump said in early December. Rabbi Yakov Avitan, an Ashkelon council member, said he believes Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is equally as important.

"Dear people of Guatemala, today I spoke with the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. It's been the capital of the state of Israel for 70 years, and it's about time that the USA said - and I'm glad they said it - this is the capital". The Tel Aviv-Jerusalem high-speed line is expected to open next spring.

The transportation minister ordered officials in his ministry to define this project a top priority mission. The line will run from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israel captured east Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, in 1967, and annexed it in a move not recognised internationally. Two sections - largely underground - of the line run through the West Bank, which is land the Palestinians envision for a future state, a position widely held as the worldwide consensus.
