Israeli authorities begin putting up road signs for U.S. embassy in Jerusalem

Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu

The announcement comes one week before the United States embassy opens in Jerusalem on May 14 in accordance with President Donald Trump's December 6 recognition of the city as Israel's capital.

Trump has been coy as to whether or not he would attend the ceremony, and Monday's statement did not list him as an attendee indicating he will not make an appearance.

Other members of the delegation include Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Trump's Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.

Sullivan will be accompanied by Ambassador David Friedman, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, White House aides Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and special envoy for global negotiations Jason Greenblatt.

They see in him a father figure, strict but with their best interests at heart. We wish him well and to recover very quickly.

The signs were placed near a building of the USA consulate south of Jerusalem, which appears to be the embassy's headquarters, as it will be officially moved on May 14. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the U.S. move saying that Washington has lost its credibility as mediator in the Middle East crisis. "Given that the focus of the event is on US-Israeli relations, we did not extend an invitation to the foreign diplomatic corps". No country now has its embassy in Jerusalem, instead keeping them in the Israeli commercial capital Tel Aviv.

Workmen installed the black-and-white signs, in English, Hebrew and Arabic, along roads leading to a US consulate building in south Jerusalem that will be remodeled as the embassy when it is formally relocated from Tel Aviv on May 14.

Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who serve as advisers to the president, will also attend. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish People and now, the world will begin to recognize this.

Trump made recognizing Jerusalem as the capital a campaign vow, breaking with previous presidents who believed the controversial move would kill any peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Kushner has been tasked with leading efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians, which have hit a virtual standstill.

This is also great news for brands as they now get to enable their target audience to buy rather than just show them promotions. So, players like BookMyShow and PayTM that sell movie tickets will be able to sell tickets on Instagram as well.

Palestinian officials didn't see it that way.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat has urged the global community to boycott the ceremony.

The interim embassy will initially contain office space for Friedman and a small staff, a United States official in Israel told The Times of Israel, last month.

"Most embassy staff will continue to live and work in Tel Aviv during this period, until a new embassy is built in Jerusalem".

The death is the first in the line of duty by an officer with the Terre Haute Police Department since July 11, 2011. The suspect who was also wounded, managed to barricade themselves in the building for several hours.
