Embassy transfer expected following Pence's United Nations speech

King Abdullah II

Under the current Trump presidency, I promise you that: The United States will stand side by side with Israel because your values are our values, your goals are our goals and your wars are our wars.

Earlier this year, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had warned against the embassy's move, in an official letter addressed to Trump. "Under our administration, America will always stand with Israel".

President Trump is "actively considering when and how" to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday.

The ramifications of such a move, according to the same sources, would be that Trump would instruct his staff to begin preparations to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

With the Trump administration facing a deadline within days on whether to move the embassy, Pence's comments suggested the administration may be closer to agreeing to a key Israeli wish.

A report by Channel 2, revealed that senior Israeli officials have said that the Israeli government expects an announcement from President Trump in the coming days, regarding moving the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The next six-month waiver is due to be signed this week. Something which the reigning US presidents have done for years.

The White House said at the time that the question is "not if that move happens, but only when".

Gas prices down, but high for time of year
The switch to winter-blend fuels, which are cheaper to produce, usually have some effect on Idaho prices by now. Gas prices in states within the West Coast region are among the most expensive in the country.

"While Israel was built by human hands, it's impossible not to see the hand of heaven here too".

The administration was "committed" to bringing peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said.

"Under President Trump, the USA will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons", he said.

He also commented on USA efforts at the UN, repeating US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley's words that "the days of Israel-bashing at the United Nations are over". The State of Israel, was born out of the 2,000 year old hope of the Jewish people to return to our homeland: to return to Zion, to Jerusalem.

Pence was met with applause when he said the Jewish people have the right "to be the masters of their own fate, like all other nations, in their own sovereign state".

Meanwhile, Iranian officials continue vowing to destroy both Israel and the U.S. Despite those very real threats, Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon said Israel will continue to be "a light to the nations". "And today, in 2017, 70 years later, the modern State of Israel has made the impossible possible", he told United Nations ambassadors, diplomats and leaders of American Jewish organizations.
