Ivanka Trump in Jerusalem for embassy opening as Gaza braces for bloodshed

Known for his anti Muslim views the veteran left-winger Zeman would like the Czech embassy to move to Jerusalem too

"For 70 years has Jerusalem been awaiting worldwide recognition, until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel", the club wrote.

'The chairmen of the club, the owner Eli Tabib and the executive manager Eli Ohana have chose to add to the club's title the name of the American President who made history, and from now on will be called Beitar Trump Jerusalem.

An Israeli soccer team has changed its name to honor President Donald Trump, a day before the US embassy is slated to move to Jerusalem.

Thousands of Palestinians are expected to protest against the move from across the occupied Palestinian territories on Monday, including the Gaza Strip as part of the Great March of Return. Hamas leaders in Gaza are calling on tens of thousands to protest along the border with southern Israel as well as throughout PA (Palestinian Authority) areas in Yehuda and Shomron and to engage in confrontations with IDF soldiers.

It would be politically hard for any Trump successor to move the embassy back to Tel Aviv, though the next administration could theoretically still try to broker talks on the future of Jerusalem, said Nathan Thrall of the International Crisis Group think tank.

A small interim embassy will open inside the existing United States consulate building in Jerusalem on Monday, while a larger site will be found later when the rest of the embassy moves from Tel Aviv. Friedman in the past has been a supporter of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

On Tuesday, Palestinians will mark Nakba, referring to the mass uprooting during the Mideast war over the 1948 creation of Israel.

Since the Hamas-led marches began at the end of March, 44 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1,700 wounded from Israeli army fire. No Israelis have been injured.

She is one of five US officials who are part of the delegation for the opening, led by Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan, that President Donald Trump will not attend.

For Israelis, Sunday is Jerusalem Day, an annual celebration of the "reunification" of the city following the 1967 Six-Day War.

Abbas, who for years had banked on the USA to persuade Israel to cede land for a Palestinian state, felt betrayed and halted contacts with the Trump administration.

Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has been staging a series of weekly demonstrations against a crippling Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the territory.

Although Trump has said his declaration does not set the final borders of the city, his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital has been perceived by both Israel and the Palestinians as taking Israel's side in the most sensitive issue in their conflict. He promised to move the American Embassy to Israel and he is doing so.

Islamic Hamas movement on Sunday called on people to join the largest ever rallies and marches organized in eastern Gaza Strip on Monday.

The squad announced earlier today (Sunday) their intention to add "Trump" to the team's official name.
