Ivanka Trump Has 'Great Joy' Going to Jerusalem Embassy Opening on Monday

Top US officials insisted Sunday that they could still push forward the troubled Israeli-Palestinian peace process, despite outrage across the Arab world over the opening of the new American embassy in Jerusalem, topped with a refusal by Palestinian officials to meet with their US counterparts.

Israel is bolstering its forces along the Gaza border and in the West Bank in anticipation of mass Palestinian protests, as the US prepares to open its new embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

A signature campaign promise, Trump's December announcement of the embassy move led to major protests in Gaza and the West Bank. The Palestinian leadership rejected Washington's traditional role as a mediator following Trump's Jerusalem decision. "It is still unclear how long it will take to fix and replace the necessary parts". "Today's move of the U.S. embassy gives life to a religious conflict instead of a dignified peace".

The fate of Jerusalem is a deeply emotional issue at the heart of the Israel-Palestinian conflict. It will also feature U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan, Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin, senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner, the president's daughter Ivanka Trump and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.

Sharif's Mumbai attack remark
A spokesman for Sharif said: "At the outset, statement of Nawaz Sharif has been grossly misinterpreted by the Indian media". India's position has been that the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attack operated from Pakistan.

There were already tensions in the weeks before the embassy move. The worldwide consensus remains that the status of the Jerusalem should be part of final status negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

"We will place a million martyrs on this land until, God willing, we liberate it", Mahmoud al-Zahar, a co-founder of Hamas, vowed this weekend.

"The reason is simple: For over 3,000 years it has been the capital of our people, and only of our people". Many other countries have spoken about subsequently moving their embassies as well.

Bolton meanwhile said the opening of the embassy in a city which the Palestinians also want to make the capital of their promised future state would actually enhance the prospects of peace.
