Western Wall Not Part of Israel

The scene of a stabbing attack in Jerusalem's Old City
The rival claims to Jerusalem lie at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and no countries now have their embassies in Jerusalem, instead basing them in Israel's commercial capital Tel Aviv.
"Israel's position has often been expressed to the American administration and to the world", the statement from the prime minister's office read.
Israel considers all of Jerusalem as its indivisible capital, a claim that is not recognised internationally, and the Western Wall - the holiest prayer site for Jews - is part of territory it captured in the 1967 Middle East war.
Trump has already promised Netanyahu that he would recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's "eternal" capital.
Top officials at the State Department, Department of Defense and the USA intelligence community are urging the White House not to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, warning that such a decision would be harmful to the peace process and carry broader regional risks, a senior administration official and several U.S. officials told CNN.
The Palestinians want to establish a state in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
However, the six-month extension of the waiver will end on the first of June, leaving Trump before two choices: either to extend it or to allow for the embassy relocation.
As the Times of Israel notes, the visit "would likely be interpreted by some as akin to an American recognition of Israeli sovereignty over East Jerusalem". Instead of moving the embassy to Israel's capital of Jerusalem (almost every overseas American embassy is in the host country's capital), Tillerson floated the potential move as a bargaining chip as part of a peace deal with the Palestinians.

Friedman, who owns an apartment in Jerusalem, is expected to live in the United States ambassador's official residence in the Tel Aviv suburb of Herziliya. "The President is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact a peace process", he said.
Worshippers at the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, Jan. 17, 2017. While Trump has articulated support for peace between the two sides, he has yet to explicitly endorse the creation of a fledgling Palestinian state, or join the global consensus supporting a two-state solution.
"We are convinced that this statement is contrary to the policy of President Trump".
Before he visits Israel, Trump is scheduled to travel to Riyadh where he will hold a summit with Arab and Islamic leaders on May 21.
