"As Washington pursues a policy of encouragement of worldwide anarchy and disregard for organizations and global law, we call upon all diplomatic corps, civil society organizations, and religious authorities to boycott the inauguration ceremony of the USA embassy in Jerusalem, lest they lend legitimacy to an illegal decision and to continued Israeli policies of occupation, colonization, and annexation", Erekat said in an official statement.

But, unfortunately, from the Indian side, there is no sign of shifting their embassy to Jerusalem!

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Palestine-Israel conflict, with Palestinians seeking East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel since 1967 - as the capital of an independent Palestinian state. "It is reality. I am proud and moved to have hung this morning the first new signs that were prepared for the U.S. Embassy", Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat wrote on Twitter. This is a historic event and I thank President Trump.

Road signs directing vehicles and pedestrians to the "US Embassy" were erected on Monday across Jerusalem only days ahead of the relocation of America's mission from Tel Aviv to the US's newly recognized capital.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday announced the designation of a presidential delegation to Israel to attend the opening of the U.S. embassy. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the United States move saying that Washington has lost its credibility as mediator in the Middle East crisis.

Earlier this week, Amnesty International UK also condemned the launch of the race right next to East Jerusalem al-Quds where Palestinians regularly face house demolitions, illegal settlement building and restrictions of movement. The city is claimed by Muslims, Christians and Jews to be historically important for them. The Palestinians, on the other hand, see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state and oppose any Israeli attempt to extend sovereignty. They were promised East Jerusalem as their capital by worldwide community during the USA sponsored peace talks through last several decades.
