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

President Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, second from right, attends the official reception at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem on May 13, 2018, ahead of Monday's transfer of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

And although Donald Trump is fulfilling his election promise to move the embassy to Jerusalem, he also promised a peace accord between the Israelis and Palestinians.

"We look forward to celebrating Israel's 70th anniversary and the bright future ahead", Ivanka wrote on Instagram ahead of the opening, which will take place on Monday, exactly seven decades since the country declared independence.

Protests are continuing across the region.

Later on Saturday, Israeli war planes destroyed an underground attack tunnel near the border that was being built by Hamas, the Islamist group that controls Gaza, to help militants cross into Israel, the military said.

"If you're not prepared to recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that's where the American Embassy should be, then you're operating on a completely different wavelength", Bolton told ABC's This Week.

The 1-kilometer tunnel was only meters away from the border fence near the Erez crossing into Israel and a short distance away from a kibbutz, said the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman.

Their auto is desperately poor this year, too, and they will head into tomorrow's race rooted to the foot of the constructors' championship.


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 USA decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

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.

Israel says it is protecting a sovereign border and accuses Hamas of using the unrest to plan and carry out attacks.

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

In just over a year of presidency, President Trump has managed to officially recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, cut funding to reward terrorists, create a supporting stage for Israel in the United Nations, challenging every anti-Semitic resolution that comes up, and as said, he is the first president that held up to his promise about moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

More than 40 Palestinians have been killed in the latest violence.

A high-ranking delegation of Gaza's Hamas rulers headed to Egypt on Sunday, amid diplomatic efforts aimed at containing the mass rally.

Friedman confirmed that Trump will "be there on video" at the embassy ceremony and that Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, a senior White House aide, will speak in person.
