Trump's speech to Israeli parliament scrapped amid concerns

In a much-awaited speech at the Israel Museum, Trump pledged unstinting support for Israel, vowed that he would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and asserted that Israeli and Palestinian leaders were ready to make peace. It was the final event during his 27 hours in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Melech, an 18-year-old who did not want to give his surname, said "when we walk on these streets, no matter if it is a Jewish section or Arab section, for us it is all a holy city". "But we really hope that he goes forward and these things don't remain on the level of slogans and talking".

During a ceremony marking 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem in the Six Day War, Israel's president urged the government to improve the conditions of its eastern part.

The White House late Tuesday released a readout of Trump's meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem from earlier that day.

Although many politicians in Israel hailed this description of Jerusalem's historical ties to Judaism, Pizzaballa took a more measured approach.

Trump came to power promising to be the most pro-Israel president in United States history. It believes - not without reason - that any other course of action would expose its citizenry to unacceptable risk of violence, and also potentially fatal to the country's national spirit. That might not be the world that we want to live in - it might not be the world that either Jewish or Arab residents of Jerusalem want to live in.

He said: "Both drivers did their utmost today to gather as many valuable points as possible for the championship ahead". The Williams of Felipe Massa went ninth, and the second Haas of Kevin Magnussen took the last place in the points.

Israel's parliament speaker says a proposal that Donald Trump would speak before the Knesset during his visit to Israel was scrapped over fears that the American president would be interrupted and heckled by some lawmakers. Police also ejected several Jewish visitors who bowed in prayer, in violation of a longstanding ban on Jewish worship at the site. Trump did not visit the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, which was originally rumored to be part of the itinerary.

The wall is the holiest site where Jews can pray. Today, Jerusalem continues to be built up as the light rail is extended to outlying neighborhoods and new residential housing flourishes citywide, as it's written. The global community doesn't recognize Israeli sovereignty over east Jerusalem and Palestinians regard it as the future capital of an independent Palestinian state.

Sutton said he didn't know if it was realistic to expect any breakthrough, but wasn't sure Trump could do a whole lot worse than previous administrations.

Hoenlein said he was "told by a USA official that Israel's military advantage would be protected". I'm finding it hard to understand why that is so.

Ramon pointed out that prior to the trip, Trump rarely had bothered to make the distinction between radical Islam and mainstream Islam.

Trump has now flown to Rome ahead of a meeting with Pope Francis.

Before kickoff, Prince William laid a wreath in memory of the victims alongside Manchester mayor Andy Burnham. Trump said the relationship between both countries was the most cherished of all United States ties.

Pizzaballa said it was hard to predict what will happen with the meeting between the pope and president.

Similarly, Logan Bayroff, associate director of communications for J Street, said the visit was "very light on substance".

Overall, though, Middle East and North African countries would see their assistance slashed by $850 million (£656 million), estimates from thinktank the Project on Middle East Democracy said.

To be clear, I think this is the right decision.

Regarding the embassy, Trump repeatedly promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem, asserting: "I'm not a person who breaks a promise". "I'm not so excited by anything of this".
