Israel will deploy 10000 police for Donald Trump visit

The comments also come only one week before Trump is expected to make his first official visit to Israel, on his first overseas trip since becoming president.

President Trump is also slated to visit the Western Wall which would make him the first sitting U.S. president to visit the holy site.

Benjamin Netanyahu's office responded to a tweet by a Fox News correspondent which asserted that the Israeli prime minister asked President Donald Trump not to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem. "Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem will not only not harm the peace process, it will advance it by correcting a historical wrong and by shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel".

Bennett, who chairs the coalition's Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party, which unequivocally rejects the two-state solution, referred to Netanyahu's 2009 speech at Bar-Ilan University in which, apparently under massive pressure from former US President Barack Obama, he endorsed a two-state solution.

The spat reportedly erupted during preparations for Trump's visit to the region next week.

This gave Isaiah Thomas more room on the offensive end, which helped him take control of the game in the second half. The play of both teams has been largely unpredictable over the course of the last six games.

"The Israeli government, which is the occupying force, bears responsibility for the shooting of a Jordanian citizen in occupied east Jerusalem which led to his martyrdom", government spokesman Mohamed Momani said in a statement.

Trump pledged during his presidential campaign to relocate the embassy, telling the pro-Israel lobby group American Israel Public Affairs Committee in March 2016 that he wanted to "move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was pleased that only 22 out of 58 member nations supported the resolution.

The Palestinians say it is the result of 50 years of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, home to more than 5 million Palestinians. The administration has distanced itself from that assurance and instead has taken a wait-and-see approach as Trump attempts to restart peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's July visit to Israel, Abbas said India should continue to play the important role it has been in bringing peace to the Middle East. Israel captured east Jerusalem - claimed by Palestinians for the capital of a future independent state - from Jordan in 1967 and annexed it, a move not internationally recognized.
