The US officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on May 14 when a new US Embassy opened there. It will be housed temporarily in the former consulate building in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Arnona while officials look for a permanent location.
Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and several members of Congress attended the opening ceremony. President Trump did not attend in person but spoke to the group via video.
It’s a controversial move that breaks with decades of official US policy — and it comes at a particularly tumultuous time for Israel and the region.
Either way, congratulations and this fulfills a Biblical prophecy.
