The proposal to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim appears to have been shelved indefinitely, and was completely obscured by other issues at last week’s summit at the White House.
Nevertheless, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked expressed her confidence on Monday that the move will be made.
“The government expects that President Trump will meet his obligations to his voters and move the embassy to Yerushalayim,” she told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, according to The Jerusalem Post.
“I definitely think the embassy should move to Yerushalayim and hope he will keep his promise,” she added.
Shaked also said, “I am concerned about … decreasing support for Israel in the Democratic party. I almost didn’t sleep at night after I saw a poll two weeks ago,” which termed it “a strategic issue for Israel.”
