Ex-mufti rails at plan for Trump train stop at Western Wall

The president of Guatemala Jimmy Morales shook hands with the Israeli prime minister in a meeting held in November 2016

Mr Trump has said he was simply acknowledged the reality on the ground by recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital - but the Palestinians and most world powers have said he undermined the long-held position that Jerusalem's status must be settled by future negotiations.

President Trump announced on December 6 that the United States would henceforth recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the USA embassy from Tel Aviv-the coastal city that serves as Israel's primary commercial hub-to the ancient city that served as Israel's capital for more than 1,000 years, beginning with King David and his son, King Solomon.

Yisrael Katz told Israeli rail executives that he wanted to honour Trump "for his fearless and historic decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital".

Foles said he didn't think the team executed well enough on third downs and it prevented them from staying on the field. The Raiders recovered at their 30, but gave it back on the next play when Marshawn Lynch fumbled at the same spot.

In addition to the station, Trump-naming frenzy has swept across Jerusalem and Israel, where multiple municipal projects are expected to bear the name of the 45th President.

The post Israel set to build "Trump station" near Western Wall appeared first on Vanguard News. The project would extend Jerusalem's soon-to-open high-speed rail line from Tel Aviv to the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray. "We discussed the excellent relations that we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the state of Israel", President Jimmy Morales wrote on his official Facebook account.

A council resolution in the coastal city of Ashkelon would name a road "Trump Declaration Street", echoing the title of the "Balfour Declaration" of 1917, in which the British government committed to a Jewish home in British-mandatory Palestine. Rabbi Yakov Avitan, an Ashkelon council member, said he believes Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is equally as important.

That rematch, however, would take place at Gillette Stadium , where the Patriots have won nine straight playoff games. Yates: Through 25 minutes of play, he's completed as many passes to Texans receivers (one) as Steelers cornerbacks.

A transport ministry spokesman told AP that the project would take four years to complete and was estimated to cost $700m. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Knesset (the Israeli legislature), and the rest of the Israeli government operate out of Jerusalem. The station will be about 150 feet underground.

And the proposed extension of a high-speed rail link from Tel Aviv would see a subway stop built next to the Western Wall.

A longstanding worldwide consensus holds that the fate of the city should be decided through direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Trump told a caller from MS that the state is "great" and predicted that "Santa is going to treat you very well". He specifically praised the Coast Guard for their response to the hurricanes this fall.

Katz's proposal is likely to face opposition as the global community does not recognise Israeli sovereignty over East Jerusalem and the Old City which Israel captured in 1967 and then annexed. Two sections - largely underground - of the line run through the West Bank, which is land the Palestinians envision for a future state, a position widely held as the worldwide consensus.
