"There will be a loss of faith between the intelligence services", he said.

The Wall stands in the Old City in the east of Jerusalem, which Israel captured during the 1967 Middle East war.

Trump is due to visit Israel and the West Bank on 22-23 May after a trip to Saudi Arabia. That distinction between Jerusalem and Israel reflects the USA position that the city's fate is an issue for Israelis and Palestinians to work out through future peace negotiations.

The Jerusalem Post notes that Trump will need to work to convince Israelis that he is on their side during his visit to the Holy Land next week. The Palestinians see it as the capital of a future independent state. "This is how it has been and how it will continue to be".

Moreover, Trump expects "assurances and signals from the Israeli government that they've heard his views" on Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria, the senior official reportedly added.

Netanyahu's office confirmed that the two leaders had spoken for about 20 minutes on Tuesday, but would only say that the discussion dealt exclusively with the upcoming visit. Trump has a June 1 deadline to choose between another waiver or moving the embassy. Reinforcing their delusions, as Trump has done, will make peace even less likely.

Haley's comments in an interview that aired Wednesday attracted particular attention because they came in the wake of a diplomatic dust-up between American and Israeli officials over planning for President Donald Trump's trip next week to Israel, the Palestinian territories and Jerusalem.

When asked on "Meet the Press" about the possible move this week, Tillerson said "the president is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact a peace process".

Hagee also noted that Trump will soon need to decide whether to postpone the embassy's transfer to Jerusalem by at least half a year. Israeli right-wing politicians have been hoping he won't postpone the decision, and have attacked Netanyahu for not making a strong enough case. "Now is the time to honor our friend and fully recognize Jerusalem as the eternal, undivided capital of Israel", said Michael in a statement, according to The Daily Caller.

Trump's visit to the Palestinian territories is listed under Israel, where the video explained Trump will be meeting with the "President of the Palestinian Authority".

Pollster Smith Research measured the answers of 500 adult Israeli Jews and found that Trump will have to work hard to persuade nearly half of the country's population that he has their interests at heart. "People on the right will let Trump get away with anything as long as he acts as if the only interest that he has is Israel".
