Benjamin Netanyahu 'blesses' Guatemala's decision to relocate embassy

Israel minister plans Trump train station at Western Wall

The same area is now home to the al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the oldest in Islam, and the Dome of the Rock, the landmark where tradition says the prophet Muhammad made his night journey to heaven.

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

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, while the Palestinians claim the city's eastern sector, which was captured by Israel in 1967.

Just three weeks after President Trump officially announced the United States will move its embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing the city as the capitol of Israel, a number of other countries are following America's lead. The wall is the last remnant of the Second Temple, and it remains the holiest site in Judaism.

Katz, a senior Cabinet official who also serves as Israel's intelligence minister, is a close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and is seen by many as his likely eventual successor as head of the Likud party.

Ambassador Jado revealed the importance of the Arab League's statement at its emergency session on Trump's announcement of the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, referring to the Arab League's decision to cut the relationships between Arab countries and any country that moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Trump's December 6 decision has drawn global condemnation, including in a Turkish-sponsored resolution overwhelmingly passed last week by the UN General Assembly.

He also "liked" and "loved" a Facebook post that depicted a Santa Claus standing in NY with a box of dynamite. The FBI's investigation began on September 19, when an FBI informant reported a suspicious Facebook account.

Trump's announcement has enraged the Palestinians and much of the Muslim world.

The Western Wall train proposal will likely face opposition from the global community, which doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over east Jerusalem and the Old City, which Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed.

A longstanding worldwide consensus holds that the fate of the city should be decided through direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

'There's no reason why this train won't be built, ' he said. "We already know how to deal with no less hard opposition".

The Department of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday dismissed media reports that the country is in talks with Israel to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

Israeli forces have shut down a Palestinian radio station in the occupied West Bank for six months, the army and sources at the station said on Thursday.
