TRUMP PRAYS SECRETLY AT THE WESTERN WALL WITHOUT PUTTING A REQUEST IN THE WALL ON DAY 1 OF HIS 2 DAY ISRAEL TRIP.
1 And there was given me a(MEASURING) reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out,(TO THE WORLD NATIONS) and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.(JERUSALEM DIVIDED BUT THE 3RD TEMPLE ALLOWED TO BE REBUILT)
27 And he( THE ROMAN,EU PRESIDENT) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:(1X7=7 YEARS) and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,(3 1/2 yrs in TEMPLE SACRIFICES STOPPED) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it.
5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.
31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.(3RD TEMPLE REBUILT)
11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away,(AT THE MIDPOINT OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD)(3RD TEMPLE SACRIFICES STOPPED BY DICTATOR) and the abomination that maketh desolate set up,(TO WORSHIP THE DICTATOR OR DIE) there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.(1,290 DAYS)(AN EXTRA 30 DAYS AT THE END OF THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION PERIOD FOR JESUS TO DESTROY THE ARMIES AGAINST JERUSALEM.AND TO JUDGE THE SHEEP AND GOAT NATIONS OF MATTHEW 25:31-46-HOW THEY TREATED ISRAEL DURING THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION PERIOD.AND THEN I BELIEVE JESUS WILL REBUILD THE 4TH TEMPLE 25 MILES FROM THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT.AND THEN JESUS RULES FOR THE 1,000 YEARS-THEN FOREVER FROM THAT 4TH TEMPLE.)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
REBUILT 4TH TEMPLE (THE TRUE MESSIAHS TEMPLE)
12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH;(JESUS) and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.
10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
3 For the LORD shall comfort Zion:(JERUSALEM) he will comfort all her waste places;(FROM NUCLEAR WAR) and he will make her wilderness like Eden,(I BELIEVE THE EZEKIEL 40-48,(4TH) TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT 25 MILES FROM THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT AFTER JESUS RULE FOR THE 1,000 YRS FROM JERUSALEM) and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.(PRAISE TO JESUS IN THE DESERT-COULD BE THE NEW JERUSALEM-4TH TEMPLE BUILT 25 MILES INTO THE DESERT FROM THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT.SINCE EZEKIELS TEMPLE IS WAY TO BIG FOR THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT)

Trump makes history as first serving US president to visit Western Wall-After walking to Church of Holy Sepulchre, president dons black kippah to visit Jewish holy site, slipping a prayer note into its stones-By Marissa Newman May 22, 2017, 4:59 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Fifty years after Israel captured the Western Wall, US President Donald Trump on Monday became the first sitting American leader to visit the holy site, in a historic visit that saw him accompanied by his Jewish relatives in Jerusalem’s ancient Old City.Entering the Old City’s warren of alleyways on Monday — on lockdown by police for his visit — Trump and his wife Melania met the heads of various Christian denominations and began their tour at one of the holiest sites in Christianity, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed by Christians to be the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection.Security camera footage showed the US entourage, numbering hundreds of people, strolling through the ancient city’s alleys from Jaffa Gate to the holy Christian site under unprecedented security.The US president was greeted outside the ancient church by the Armenian and Greek Orthodox patriarchs of Jerusalem. After briefly stopping to be photographed, he entered the building, along with his son-in-law and daughter, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.From there, the US delegation walked back to Jaffa Gate, where they entered the convoy of dozens of vehicles to drive to the Western Wall.Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch and Western Wall Heritage Foundation director Mordechai Eliav met the black kippah-clad Trump at the entrance to the plaza, which was emptied of worshipers for the presidential visit.From there, Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner strolled to the men’s section of the wall, in accordance with the gender-segregated Orthodox practice at the site, while Ivanka and Melania Trump headed to the women’s section.Trump approached the wall, lingering to touch the stones for some 30 seconds and slipping a note inside. On the women’s side, Ivanka Trump, who is Jewish, prayed at the wall, eyes shut, before stepping away. Melania Trump, too, stood in reverence at the wall.The US president later read a chapter of Psalms along with the rabbis.The Western Wall, part of the retaining walls of the Second Temple compound, is the closest point of prayer for Jews to the site of the Temple itself and thus the Jewish people’s holiest place of prayer. It was captured along with the rest of the Old City and East Jerusalem in the 1967 war and annexed by Israel as part of its united capital — a move not recognized internationally.Monday’s visit comes two days before the 50th anniversary of Israel’s recapture of the city.In a bid to keep the tour free of political undertones, US officials reportedly rejected a request for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to join the visit, saying it would be “a private visit” by the president and that he would go on his own.Last week, the White House confirmed that Trump would not be accompanied by any Israeli officials when he visits the holy site.Earlier on Monday, police said a protest broke out near the Jaffa Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. The protesters were Jews, but the precise agenda of the protest was not immediately evident.Police officers on the scene quickly dispersed the protest and removed the demonstrators, as the area was closed off as part of the security precautions for Trump’s trip, a police spokesperson said.Trump, who landed Monday afternoon for a whirlwind 28-hour visit, will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the King David Hotel at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner at 7:30 p.m. at the Prime Minister’s Residence where Trump and Netanyahu will be joined by their wives.On Tuesday morning, Trump will head to Bethlehem at 10 a.m. for a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. He may visit the Church of the Nativity in the city.The Israeli part of his visit then resumes Tuesday with a 1 p.m. wreath-laying ceremony at the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum.At 2 p.m. Trump is due to move on to deliver an address at the Israel Museum located across the street from the Knesset. This is set to be the main speech of his Israel trip.The US president will then return to Ben Gurion Airport and lift off for Italy, and the Vatican leg of his trip, at 4 p.m.

3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
Donald Trump brings God into the negotiation room-The former real estate magnate doesn’t see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a simple land dispute. As opposed to his predecessors, he focuses on the religious dimension-By Raphael Ahren May 22, 2017, 12:13 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
At Shimon Peres’s funeral last year, famed author Amos Oz described the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a simple but striking metaphor.“Because Israelis and Palestinians cannot suddenly become one happy family, cannot jump together into a double bed and go on a honeymoon, there is no other way than to divide this house into apartments,” he said, “and to turn it into a house for two families.”The competing claims for the same territory by Israelis and Palestinians have often been described in terms of real estate. The Land of Israel — or alternatively, “historic Palestine” — is but a piece of property that needs to be divided, and as soon as we can figure out how to do that fairly, the conflict will end.Leaders in Jerusalem and Ramallah have long embraced this narrative, and while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in recent years introduced nationality or peoplehood into the equation — by demanding the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state — both sides have been extremely wary of attempts to view the century-old conflict through a religious lens.It is somewhat ironic, therefore, that Donald Trump, a former real estate magnate, is the one seemingly departing from the position that this conflict is merely about competing claims to a piece of land.Instead, he appears eager to effect a paradigm shift: Rather than approaching Israel/Palestine as a property that a good negotiator can convince both parties to divide, he approaches the issue, at least initially, as a conflict of good versus evil that could easily be solved if only the good people of all religions would unite against those abusing faith for their wicked ends.“This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it,” Trump said Sunday in Saudi Arabia, referring to the fight against terrorism. “This is a battle between good and evil.”Addressing political leaders from Arab and Muslim countries, Trump mentioned “God” a whopping nine times. The theme of his speech was the joint need to combat terrorism, but it was infused with a spiritual message. “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory — piety to evil will bring you no dignity,” he warned. “If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.”For “many centuries,” Christians, Muslims and Jews have been living “side by side” in the Middle East, Trump went on. “We must practice tolerance and respect for each other once again — and make this region a place where every man and woman, no matter their faith or ethnicity, can enjoy a life of dignity and hope.”Trump described Saudi Arabia, his first destination on his first presidential trip outside the US, as “the nation that serves as custodian of the two holiest sites in the Islamic faith.” After Riyadh, he will come to Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Vatican — three additional sites holy to the Abrahamic religions. “If these three faiths can join together in cooperation,” he declared, “then peace in this world is possible — including peace between Israelis and Palestinians.”The White House made plain that Trump’s unprecedented visit Monday to the Western Wall — he’ll be the first serving US president to visit the disputed site — should be seen as a gesture aimed at promoting interfaith tolerance, not a political statement.The fact that Trump will pray at the site without any official Israeli accompaniment is an indication that he does not want the religious message of his visit to be overshadowed by speculation over a possible American recognition of Israeli sovereignty there.National Security Adviser General H.R. McMaster on Friday emphasized that a central goal of Trump’s visit to the Middle East is “to broadcast a message of unity to America’s friends and to the faithful of three of the world’s greatest religions.” The president wants “to unite peoples of all faiths around a common vision of peace, progress, and prosperity” and deliver “a message of tolerance and of hope to billions, including to millions of Americans who profess these faiths.”It appears that the focus on religious symbolism is more than a mere gimmick to provide good photo ops or feel-good sound bites.In March, Jason Greenblatt, the US administration’s special envoy for international negotiations, took time to meet with senior Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious leaders in Jerusalem.Greenblatt reportedly said the 90-minute encounter, attended by both Israeli chief rabbis and the chief justice of the Palestinian Authority’s sharia court, was the most important meeting of his week-long tour in the region.“The leaders agreed that the search for peace must be governed by respect for life and human dignity for all people; to work together for peace, reconciliation, and a just solution; and to reject all incitement to violence,” said a statement released by the US Embassy in Tel Aviv at the time.Rabbi David Rosen, an interfaith adviser to the Israel Chief Rabbinate, deemed Greenblatt’s initiative “historic” in that it marked the first time in recent memory that a senior US administration official engaged in peacemaking efforts asked to meet with religious leaders.“From that point of view it’s very historic, because the impression previous administrations’ peace initiatives have given is that religion has not been considered an important factor in trying to resolve the conflict,” Rosen told The Times of Israel shortly after the meeting concluded. “Jason Greenblatt has given precisely the reverse message.”This focus on the religious dimension of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has not gone unnoticed in Jerusalem.“The Americans want to emphasize that what they’re looking for is harmony between the main religions, that all three religions might be united around the idea of peace,” said Maj. Gen. (res) Yaakov Amidror, Netanyahu’s former national security adviser.The architects of the Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinians entirely ignored the religious aspects of the conflict, he said. “That was a huge mistake.”Talking about interfaith dialogue and tolerance will not bring peace tomorrow, Amidror stressed. “But we have to begin somewhere,” and the understanding that there is a religious element to the Israeli-Palestinian dynamic is a welcome first step.Promoting religious tolerance is, of course, not the only element of Trump’s Middle East strategy. In his meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders this week he will also want to talk business, and will seek to find out what concrete policy proposals each side can bring to the table to foster a climate conducive to peace.His predecessors have done exactly that and failed spectacularly. It is by no means guaranteed — and that’s an understatement — that Trump’s attempt to clinch what he’s called the “ultimate deal” will see any more success. But at the very least, an approach that pairs political pressure on both sides with an effort to create goodwill among the region’s religious groups is something fresh.

Skirting own policy, White House puts ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on website-Live clip of statements by Trump and Netanyahu notes location of capital as being in Jewish state-By AP and Times of Israel staff May 22, 2017, 10:18 pm
WASHINGTON — The White House Monday put “Jerusalem, Israel,” on its website, breaking with decades of US policy to not recognize the city as part of the Jewish state.A screen announcing imminent statements by US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from the Prime Minister’s Residence, and the livestream of their remarks, noted the location as “Jerusalem, Israel.”No explanation was given for the dateline. The page was later taken down from the website, but was still available on YouTube.US policy doesn’t hold that the city is part of Israel.Rather, Democratic and Republican administrations have said Jerusalem’s status must be solved through US negotiation.-whjerusalme-Another page listing video feeds available on the site showed a dateline “Tel Aviv, Israel” for a video of Trump’s remarks after his arrival earlier Monday at Ben Gurion airport outside Tel Aviv.That page listed just “Jerusalem” for two other videos or remarks he made before meetings with Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin.Trump’s campaign had pledged he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital if elected, but the president has since retreated from that promise and a vow he would move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.During his first day in Israel, Trump did not refer to Jerusalem as part of Israel. His Secretary of State Rex Tillerson earlier said Trump would visit “Tel Aviv, the home of Judaism,” even though the lion’s share of Trump’s trip will take place in Jerusalem.People familiar with Trump’s trip said US officials might offer a subtle gesture to recognize Israel’s strong feelings about Jerusalem being its eternal capital.The city is marking 50 years since its reunification in the 1967 Six Day War this week.
Full text of Netanyahu, Trump remarks in Jerusalem-In joint appearance at PM’s residence, leaders voice optimism about prospects of improved ties between Israel, Arab states-May 22, 2017, 10:25 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The following are remarks by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump at the prime minister’s official residence on the evening of Monday, May 22, 2017.PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: President Trump, Donald, Sara and I are absolutely delighted to welcome you and Melania to the Prime Minister’s residence in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people, the united capital of the Jewish state.We’ve known each other for many years, and it’s always good to see you. But it’s also wonderful to see the blossoming friendship between our two beautiful wives, Sara and Melania. You’re so welcome here, and we’re so pleased to see you. We’re honored to have you in our home.You’ve been today, Mr. President, to the Western Wall, one of the holiest sites of Judaism. You have been to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the holiest sites of Christianity. We protect the Christian sites as no one else does anywhere in this region. We protect Christian sites, Muslim sites, obviously Jewish sites. We’re committed to the freedom of all faiths and to the rights of all.Mr. President, I appreciate the fact that you went to the Western Wall and you’re the first acting President who’s done that. The people of Israel applaud you for it. (Applause.)We had a terrific discussion today. And when I say terrific, it encompasses everything. We can talk about deregulation, we can talk about economics. I think we quote each other. We understand each other and so much of the things that we wish to accomplish for both our countries.But I want to thank you especially today for your deep commitment to Israel’s security, its wellbeing, and its future. I have no doubt that, as we work together, you and I, the alliance between our countries will grow ever stronger. I want you to know how much we appreciate the change in American policy on Iran, which you enunciated so clearly just an hour ago.I want you to know how much we appreciate your bold decision to act against the use of chemical weapons in Syria. And I want to tell you also how much we appreciate the reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East.I look forward to working closely with you to confront the dangers we face together in this violent and volatile Middle East. I believe that together we can roll back Iran’s march of aggression and terror in this region, and we can thwart Iran’s unbridled ambition to become a nuclear weapon state.I also look forward to working closely with you to advance peace in our region, because you have noted so succinctly that common dangers are turning former enemies into partners. And that’s where we see something new and potentially something very promising. It won’t be simple. But for the first time in many years — and, Mr. President, for the first time in my lifetime — I see a real hope for change.The Arab leaders who you met yesterday could help change the atmosphere, and they could help create the conditions for a realistic peace. These are all great signs on your historic visit. It’s a visit that I think has echoed down the ages, because the great Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said that there was no city on Earth he so much desired to see as Jerusalem.Well, Mr. President, Donald, there’s no city on Earth where you are more welcome than right here with us in Jerusalem. Welcome to Jerusalem. Welcome to Israel. (Applause.)-PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. And it’s a great honor to be with my good friend, Prime Minister Netanyahu, and, of course, Sara. Thank you. And also thank you for that beautiful tour. Melania is still talking about it. Thank you very much.You honored me and Melania by being one of the first world leaders to visit the White House, as you know. And we had a very good and sound discussion. And now you honor us again by welcoming us to your home on my first trip abroad as the President of the United States.This is a land filled with beauty, wonder, and the spirit of God. I’ve been amazed by the glorious and beautiful monuments and holy sites, and the generosity of your incredible people. Because it’s all about the people. I was deeply moved by my visit today to the Western Wall. Words fail to capture the experience. It will leave an impression on me forever.Today, we reaffirmed the unbreakable bond of friendship between Israel and the United States — a friendship built on our shared love of freedom, our shared belief in human dignity, and our shared hope for an Israel at lasting peace. We want Israel to have peace.But we are more than friends. We are great allies. We have so many opportunities in front of us. But we must seize them together. We must take advantage of the situation, and there are many, many things that can happen now that would never have been able to happen before. And we understand that very well. That includes advancing prosperity, defeating the evils of terrorism, and facing the threat of an Iranian regime that is threatening the region and causing so much violence and suffering.During my travels, I have seen many hopeful signs that lead me to believe that we can truly achieve a more peaceful future for this region and for people of all faiths and all beliefs and, frankly, all over the world.In my visit to Saudi Arabia, I met with many leaders of the Arab and Muslim world, including King Salman, who treated us so beautifully and really wants to see great things happen for the world. He really does. I got to know him well, and he really does.These leaders voiced concerns we all share — about ISIS, about Iran’s rising ambitions and rolling back its gains, and about the menace of extremism that has spread through too many parts of the Muslim world. I’m encouraged that they pledge cooperation to confront terrorism and the hateful ideology that drives it so hard. America welcomes the action and support of any nation willing to do the hard but vital work in eradicating the violent ideologies that have caused so much needless bloodshed and killing here and all over the world.We are willing to work together. I believe that a new level of partnership is possible and will happen — one that will bring greater safety to this region, greater security to the United States, and greater prosperity to the world. This includes a renewed effort at peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and I thank the Prime Minister for his commitment to pursuing the peace process. He’s working very hard at it. It’s not easy. I’ve heard it’s one of the toughest deals of all, but I have a feeling that we’re going to get there eventually, I hope.I’m certain we will have very productive discussions. And we’re going to have very productive discussions, in my opinion, with the leaders of other nations also. And I feel strongly about that, because there’s a lot of love out there. And people from all nations, even nations that you would be surprised to hear, they want to stop the killing. They’ve had enough.America stands ready to assist in every way we can. Our deep and lasting friendship will only grow deeper and stronger as we work together in the days ahead. I thank you again for hosting us in this beautiful and ancient land. Truly, it’s a land of wonders. And it’s my honor to be here with you.Sara, thank you. Bibi, thank you. I appreciate it very much. Great honor. Thank you.PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: Thank you. (Applause.)

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations;(14)and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations;(14)and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.(14)(42 GENERATIONS DIVIDED BY 2160 YEARS = 51.4 YRS TO A GENERATION)
38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,(SO HERE IN LUKE 3 WE HAVE 77 GENERATIONS FROM ADAM TO CHRIST-77 DIVIDED BY 4,000 YEARS = 51.9 YRS TO A GENERATIN)(SO A TRUE BIBLE GENERATION IS FROM 40 TO 51 YEARS)

President Trump’s speech on arrival in Israel-‘We have a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region and to its people,’ US leader says at Ben Gurion Airport. ‘We love Israel; we respect Israel’-By Times of Israel staff May 22, 2017, 2:26 pm
Thank you and Shalom. It is wonderful to be here in Israel.President Rivlin, Mrs. Rivlin, Prime Minister Netanyahu, Mrs. Netanyahu, thank you very much.I am deeply grateful for your invitation and very, very honored to be with you.On my first overseas trip as president, I have come to this sacred and ancient land to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and the State of Israel. In this land so rich in history, Israel has built one of the world’s great civilizations, a strong, resilient, determined and prosperous nation. It is also a nation forged in the commitment that we will never allow the horrors and atrocities of the last century to be repeated.Now we must work together to build a future where the nations of the region are at peace, and all of our children can grow and grow up strong and grow up free from terrorism and violence.During my travels in recent days, I have found new reasons for hope. I have just concluded a visit to Saudi Arabia where yesterday I met with King Salman and with the leaders from across the Muslim and Arab world. In that visit, we reached historic agreements to pursue greater and greater cooperation in the fight against terrorism and its evil ideology.My future travels will take me to visit Pope Francis at the Vatican and then our NATO and European allies. We have before us a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region and to its people, defeating terrorism and creating a future of harmony, prosperity and peace. But we can only get there working together. There is no other way.Mr. President, Mr. Prime Minister, I look forward to working closely with both of you during my stay. We love Israel; we respect Israel. And I send your people the warmest greetings from your friend and ally, all of the people in the United States of America. We are with you. Thank you and God bless you.

President Trump, Madam First Lady, Donald, Melania, Welcome.A very warm welcome to Israel.Your visit here, Mr. President, is truly historic. Never before has the first foreign trip of a president of the United States included a visit to Israel. Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you for this powerful expression of your friendship to Israel.Mr. President, yesterday in Saudi Arabia you delivered a forceful speech of clarity and conviction. You called on all nations to drive out terrorists and extremists. You called for the forces of civilization to confront the forces of barbarism. Mr. President, for 69 years, Israel has been doing precisely that. We’ve manned the front lines of civilization; we fought terrorism; and we’ve build a modern, vibrant, democratic, Jewish state. In doing so, Mr. President, we’ve protected all faiths – Muslims, Christians, everyone.Throughout the Middle East, Christian communities are decimated, minorities persecuted. But here in Israel, we’re proud to have a growing and thriving Christian community, and we guarantee the rights of all.Mr. President, Israel also shares the commitment to peace that you expressed yesterday. We’ve already made peace with Egypt and with Jordan, and Israel’s hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians. The peace we seek is a genuine and durable one, in which the Jewish state is recognized, security remains in Israel’s hands and the conflict ends once and for all.Mr. President, you just flew from Riyadh to Tel Aviv. I hope that one day an Israeli prime minister will be able to fly from Tel Aviv to Riyadh.May your first trip to our region prove to be a historic milestone on the path towards reconciliation and peace. I look forward to working with you in the years ahead, Mr. President, to advance security, prosperity and peace. I’m confident that under your leadership the remarkable alliance between Israel and the United States will become ever greater, ever stronger.Donald and Melania, the entire US delegation, on behalf of the Government and the people of Israel, we welcome you to the State of Israel. May God bless you, Mr. President, may God bless Israel and may God bless the United States of America.
Trump’s White House continues to flip-flop on status of Jerusalem-Netanyahu hails Trump’s ‘reassertion of US leadership in the Mideast’; visiting American leader urges Netanyahu to seize ‘new partnerships’ with Arab world, says a ‘lot of love’ will help bring peace-By Times of Israel staff and Tamar Pileggi May 22, 2017, 8:54 am
21:56-Trump’s visit to Saudi a ‘turning point,’ king says-Saudi King Salman describes Trump’s visit to the Muslim kingdom in the Gulf as a “turning point” in relations between the two countries.“This is a turning point in relations between the two countries,” Salman tells his council of ministers, according to state news agency SPA.He said relations between the two countries will advance from a partnership to the “level of strengthening consultations, cooperation and coordination on all fronts.”Trump yesterday concluded his landmark visit to Saudi Arabia, which he chose for his first foreign trip since taking office in January, during which the allies announced arms deals and investments worth hundreds of billions of dollars.— AFP-21:27-Trump’s White House continues to flip-flop on status of Jerusalem-Trump’s administration continues to waiver on whether it will change longstanding US policy by declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel.Earlier, a screen preview on the White House website announcing upcoming statements by Trump and Netanyahu noted the location as “Jerusalem, Israel.”Less than an hour later, the dateline was revised to mark the location as only “Jerusalem.”No explanation was given for the original or revised datelines.-21:15-Bennett again urges Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital-Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett again calls on Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.In a speech delivered to mark Jerusalem Day, Bennett tells the visiting US president that he “touched the hearts of the Israeli people” by visiting the Western Wall earlier today.Bennett calls the international community’s non-recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital a “historic anomaly.”“Jerusalem has been our capital for 3,000 years. More than Paris for France, London for England or Washington, DC for the United States,” he says at a Jerusalem Day event being held at the International Convention Center.”As the leader of the free world, and of Israel’s best friend, you have the historic opportunity to be the first leader to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital,” Bennett says.”On behalf of the Israeli people left and right, and on behalf of Jews around the world, I call on you today: President Trump please make history! Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital!”-21:02-White House puts ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on website-The White House puts “Jerusalem, Israel,” on its website.A screen previewing the statements by Trump and Netanyahu at the prime minister’s residence noted the location as being in “Jerusalem, Israel.”US policy doesn’t hold that the city is part of Israel. Rather, Democratic and Republican administrations have said Jerusalem’s status must be solved through US negotiation.No explanation was given for the dateline.The Trump administration had said ahead of the president’s trip that he wouldn’t recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a pledge he made during the campaign.But people familiar with Trump’s trip said officials might offer a subtler gesture to recognize Israel’s strong feelings about Jerusalem being its eternal capital.— with AP-20:41-Trump urges Netanyahu to seize ‘new partnerships’ with Arab world-At a joint press conference with Netanyahu, Trump expresses optimism that a “new level of partnership is possible” between Israel, the US and the Arab world.“There are many things that can happen now that could never have happened before,” Trump says. “We must seize them together. We must take advantage of the situation.”The US president says that he met many Arab leaders during his trip to Riyadh earlier this week, and that Saudi Arabia’s King Salman “wants to see great things in world.”“We are willing to work together. I believe that a new level of partnership is possible and will happen,” he says.Trump also expresses optimism that a “renewed effort” will lead to an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.“I’ve heard its one of the toughest deals of all, but I have a feeling we will get there eventually, I hope,” he says. “There’s a lot of love out there.”-20:30-Netanyahu: Israel can ‘roll back Iran’s march of aggression’-Netanyahu welcomes Trump and his wife Melania to the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem, and says he is “absolutely delighted” to welcome the US president and his wife to the “united capital” of Israel and the Jewish state.Noting Trump’s earlier visit to the Western Wall and Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Netanyahu tells Trump that Israel “protects the Christian sites like no one else does in the region.”“We are committed to freedom of all faiths,” he says.Netanyahu praises Trump for being the first sitting US president to visit the Western Wall, and says “the people of Israel applaud you for it.”He goes on to say that he and Trump had a “terrific” meeting earlier, and thanks Trump for the “change on US policy on Iran” and the “reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East.”He says the two countries can “together…roll back Iran’s march of aggression,” and work together towards Mideast peace.“It won’t be simple. But for the first time in many years, and Mr. President, for the first time in my lifetime, I see a real hope for change,” Netanyahu says.-20:12-Netanyahus welcome Trumps to ‘very modest’ residence for dinner-Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu welcome Donald and Melania Trump to the “very modest” prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem for dinner.The Trumps sign the guestbook before posing for an official photograph with the Netanyahus.Yair Netanyahu is introduced to the US president and his wife and tells them he is a “big fan.”-20:06-MK slammed for Trump selfie insists US president ‘loved it’-Likud MK Oren Hazan rebuffs criticism for taking a selfie with an unamused-looking Trump after he landed in Israel earlier today, insisting to media outlets that the US president “loved it.”“Protocols are fine, but you can deviate from them,” Hazan, a politician with a reputation for inappropriate antics, tells Channel 10. “I presented myself nicely, and I told him that I’m nicknamed ‘the Israeli Trump,’ and he really loved it.”“He even said ‘I wish there was more like us,'” says Hazan.The scandal-dogged MK also dismisses Netanyahu’s apparent disapproval of his gesture, jokingly saying that perhaps the prime minister was upset that he was not invited to be in the picture.Hazan at the welcoming ceremony pulled out his cellphone and took a selfie with the US president to Netanyahu’s horror, who attempted to lower Hazan’s arm and prevent the photo.-19:35-Ivanka Trump calls visit to Western Wall ‘deeply meaningful’-Trump’s daughter Ivanka, says her visit to the Western Wall earlier was “deeply meaningful.”“It was deeply meaningful to visit the holiest site of my faith and to leave a note of prayer,” she says in a tweet.Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, visited the women’s side of the Wall after her father visited the men’s side.

The army says those were not the result of a single systemic error, but were rather unrelated incidents.— Judah Ari Gross-18:25-Trump says didn’t mention Israel in intel leak to Russians-Trump tells reporters in Jerusalem that he “never mentioned the word Israel” during his recent meeting with Russian officials in which he divulged classified information that reportedly came from Israel.In a photo op at the Kind David Hotel, Trump tells journalists that reports that Israel was the source of the intelligence were yet another thing “you got wrong.”Netanyahu adds that US-Israeli intelligence cooperation is “terrific.”-18:16-Trump: Iran should be ‘grateful’ to US for nuclear deal-Trump tells Netanyahu during their working meeting at Jerusalem’s King David Hotel that Iran should be grateful to the US for the benefits it received under the “terrible” 2015 nuclear deal.“We gave them wealth and prosperity…and an ability to continue with terror,” he says.“Iran will never have a nuclear weapon, that I can tell you,” Trump adds.The president says the “terrible” nuclear deal reached with Iran under his predecessor Barack Obama has emboldened the Islamic republic.Netanyahu thanks him for taking a stance against Iran a day earlier in a speech the US president gave in Saudi Arabia.Trump adds that he is “honored” to be the first sitting US president to visit the Western Wall earlier today.-18:05-Melania Trump, Sara Netanyahu visit Hadassah Hospital-Sara Netanyahu accompanies Melania Trump on a visit to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.The two first ladies are greeted by Hadassah President Ellen Hershkin and hospital director Prof. Zeev Rotstein.Netanyahu and Trump then take part in an art project with pediatric patients in the hospital garden.First lady Melania Trump visits the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem with Sara Netanyahu https://t.co/PaOss23Y2K https://t.co/zWdffZbsDc— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) May 22, 2017-17:59-Hamas says Trump smeared Palestinian ‘resistance’-Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas accuses Trump of smearing the name of Palestinian “resistance” and “aligning himself with the policies of the (Israeli) occupier.”Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum says Trump’s remarks on terrorism and Islamic extremism in Riyadh yesterday were “aimed at besmirching the reputation of the Palestinian resistance.”The group refuses to be treated as a “terrorist” organization, he tells AFP.Meanwhile, senior Hamas official Mushir al-Masri says Trump is “aligning himself with the policies of the (Israeli) occupier”Addressing Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia, Trump yesterday called for unity against “Islamic terror,” specifically naming Shiite jihadist groups Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic State.— with AFP-17:02-Rebuffing Trump, Iran president says missile tests to continue ‘if necessary’-Iran President Hassan Rouhani says the Islamic Republic does not need the permission of the United States to conduct missile tests, which would continue “if technically necessary.”“Our missiles are for our defense and for peace, they are not offensive. Know that while there is a technical need to conduct missile tests, we will do so and we will ask the permission of no one,” Rouhani tells reporters in Tehran, following renewed criticism from US President Donald Trump.Rouhani says that Iranians are “waiting for this government to be civil” and that “hopefully, things will settle down … so we could pass more accurate judgments.”Rouhani also criticized a meeting Trump attended in Saudi Arabia yesterday, describing it as a “show-off” that “will not have any political and practical values.”The president adds that “the issue of terrorism cannot be solved through giving money to superpowers.”— Agencies-16:47-Police say Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli troops shot dead-The Palestinian man who was shot as he attempted to stab two Border Police officers at a guard post in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Dis is killed, police say.No Israeli forces were injured in the incident.The attempted stabbing comes as US President Donald Trump visits the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City.— Judah Ari Gross-16:28-Police investigating possible stabbing near Jerusalem-Police say security forces “neutralized” a Palestinian man as he attempted to stab Border Police officers at a guard post in the Palestinian village of Abu Dis.No officers are reported injured.

In order to dream, we need to be sure that Iran is out; out of our borders, out of Syria, out of Lebanon.”Rivlin thanks his American counterpart for his willingness to advance Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

America is back again,” Rivlin says.“You marked the defeat of ISIS as one of your top missions. This is a most important objective. Israel will do everything in its power in order to assist you in this mission.“Israel appreciates Washington’s leadership in the action you took in Syria. There are red lines that must never be crossed. There is a price that must be paid by those who violate the most basic values that make us human. Further action must be considered in the face of the horrors that are still taking place on the other side of our border.”— Raphael Ahren-14:50-Israeli diplomats fume over MK Hazan’s protocol-breaking Trump selfie-Israeli officials are livid over MK Oren Hazan pushing his way to the front row to snatch a selfie with US President Donald Trump.“It’s a real embarrassment,” a senior Israeli diplomatic official who witnessed the event fumes in a private conversation. “He should be punished over this.”Hazan, a troublemaker freshman lawmaker from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, was not meant to stand in the line of senior ministers and dignitaries shaking Trump’s hand, but elbowed his way to the front as Trump made his way down the receiving line.-14:43-Trump’s presidential guestbook entry-US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump sign President Reuven Rivlin’s guestbook. “It is such a great honor to be in Israel with all of my great friends,” Trump writes in capital letters.-14:30-Trump: ‘Great honor to be in Israel with all my great friends’-Trump’s guestbook note is published by Channel 2: “It’s such a great honor to be in Israel and be with all of my great friends.”-14:24-Trump sees ‘tremendous good feeling’ among Saudis toward Israel-US President Donald Trump says he heard “tremendous good feeling” toward Israel from Saudi leaders.“We just came back from Saudi Arabia. We were treated incredibly well. There’s tremendous good feeling [toward Israel],” Trump tells President Reuven Rivlin during his visit underway now at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem.The shared opposition to Iranian ambitions in the region has caused a shift, Trump says.“I’ve seen such a different feeling toward Israel from countries that were not feeling so well toward Israel not long ago.

The strike coincides with the arrival of US President Donald Trump for a two-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.Hundreds of protesters are blocking roads in cities and towns of the West Bank as the hunger strike entered its 36th day Monday. A Palestinian advocacy group says several of the hundreds of hunger striking prisoners are hospitalized.Israel Prisons Service officials said on Sunday that dozens are expected to be hospitalized in the coming days.Palestinians say well over 1,000 are on strike, while Israeli officials insist the number is closer to 850. Many of the prisoners were convicted of terror attacks.Stores and government offices are closed down in Ramallah, public transportation has ground to a halt and main thoroughfares in Palestinian cities are empty of people and cars.The Palestinian prisoners’ affairs committee calls for a “day of rage” on Tuesday, when Trump visits Bethlehem, for “the voice of the prisoners to be heard by the president.”— Agencies and Times of Israel staff-11:46-Tel Aviv car-ramming ruled an accident, not a terror attack-Police say the car-ramming in southern Tel Aviv was not a terror attack, but a car accident.According to investigators on the scene, a driver hit a motorcycle, who then collided with a bicyclist.All five of the wounded are lightly hurt, police say.-11:45-Channel 2 says Tel Aviv car-ramming likely an accident-Channel 2 says it’s looking like the southern Tel Aviv car-ramming from a few minutes ago is an accident.Police are still conducting their preliminary inquiry, and won’t say if the incident that left five hurt was a terror attack or traffic accident.-11:42-Number of wounded in possible Tel Aviv car-ramming rises to 5-Magen David Adom rescuers say the number of people hurt from a vehicle that ran over pedestrians in a southern Tel Aviv street is up to 5.Initial media reports, citing police sources, say the driver may be Palestinian, but police are not yet saying whether the ramming is intentional or accidental.The incident took place near the Nahalat Binyamin outdoor market.-11:38-3 hurt in possible car-ramming attack in Tel Aviv-At least three people are hurt when they are hit by a car that drove on the sidewalk in a crowded southern Tel Aviv street.Police say it’s not yet clear if this is a deliberate attack.

It’s a four-hour wait, work hours, phone calls, mail, meetings, I have things to do in those four hours. To drag us there to stand as the scenery — that’s ugly. It’s beneath the dignity of the government of Israel and does not give any more respect to President Trump.”-11:04-Key US lawmakers vow full airing of reasons for Comey firing-WASHINGTON — Members of key congressional committees are pledging a full public airing as to why former FBI director James Comey was ousted amid an intensifying investigation into Russia’s interference with the US election.The probe appears to be reaching close to US President Donald Trump and his inner circle.In Sunday show appearances, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers say they will press Comey in hearings as to whether he ever felt that Trump tried to interfere with his FBI work. Others are insisting on seeing any White House or FBI documents that detail conversations between the two, following a spate of news reports that Comey had kept careful records.Comey was fired by Trump earlier this month. The former FBI director agreed to testify before the Senate intelligence committee after the Memorial Day holiday.“The American public deserves to know the answers,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, a member of the Senate intelligence committee. “Did he keep these memos? What do those memos say? And why did he write it? And how did he feel? Did he ever feel like he was being put in a position where he couldn’t do his job? There’s no doubt that that’s the questions that are going to get asked, and asked repeatedly.”The New York Times reported last week on a Comey memo indicating that Trump had urged him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. A second Times report said Trump also had told Russian officials in a closed-door meeting at the Oval Office that firing Comey “had relieved great pressure on him.” The Washington Post, meanwhile, said a senior Trump adviser is now being considered a “person of interest” in the law enforcement investigation into whether Trump’s campaign coordinated with Russia to sway the election.— AP-11:00-IDF soldier in Trump honor guard catches a snooze ahead of welcoming ceremony-10:28-Air Force One lifts off from Riyadh on way to Israel-Air Force One lifts off from Saudi Arabia on its way to Israel, where it is slated to land at Ben Gurion Airport shortly before 12:15 p.m., or just under two hours from now.One stop down, four more to go.

Contradicting police, minister tells Trump road accident might be terror attack-Unaware of updates, Gilad Erdan said incident in Tel Aviv was still possibly terrorism an hour after cops said it was a traffic crash-By Stuart Winer and Judah Ari Gross May 22, 2017, 9:02 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Monday told visiting US President Donald Trump that an incident in which several people were injured in Tel Aviv shortly before the president arrived in Israel may have been a terror attack, despite police having told the media that it was a road accident an hour before.It was later reported that Erdan, who was recently embroiled in another scandal regarding terming an incident terror before it had been fully investigated, had not been updated because ministers had their cellphones taken from them when they underwent security screening ahead of the airport welcoming ceremony.The accident took place at around 11:30 a.m., approximately an hour before Trump landed at Ben Gurion International Airport.According to police, a man driving without a license hit a bicyclist, a man on a motor scooter and a pedestrian, injuring them to varying degrees, in central Tel Aviv.The timing, along with the fact that the driver of the vehicle was Arab, initially raised concerns that the accident was a car-ramming terror attack. However, within 15 minutes, police said they believed it was a car accident and not a terror attack.An hour later, as Trump was greeted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a line up of government ministers on the tarmac, Erdan was introduced to the president by Netanyahu as being responsible for internal security.Trump then quipped, “Who is responsible for external security?” to which Erdan responded, “He is in charge,” and pointed at Netanyahu.“I thought I was in charge of all security,” Netanyahu said. “You know, terrorists don’t make a difference between internal or external.”“You know, it is possible that today it was also a terror attack. In Tel Aviv, a [car] ramming. It’s very hard to decide,” Erdan then told Trump.Channel 2 news reported that Erdan later said he was not able to bring his mobile phone on to the tarmac with him during the welcome for Trump and was therefore not informed on the latest updates from police until after the ceremony.The last he had heard before meeting the president was that police were still trying to determine the nature of the incident, he explained, according to the report.However at least one other lawmaker, MK Oren Hazan, managed to bring a phone on the tarmac, snapping a selfie with Trump a few minutes later.The driver, a 29-year-old Jaffa resident, was detained at the scene for questioning. When it was determined that he had been driving without a license, he was placed under arrest, a police spokesperson added.According to the Magen David Adom ambulance service, the bicyclist was moderately injured, suffering “head, chest and limb injuries.” He was identified as a 26-year-old man. Medics took him to Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital.The scooter driver and pedestrian — a 40-year-old man and 50-year-old woman, respectively — sustained light injuries. They were taken to Wolfson Hospital, in Holon, south of Tel Aviv.In February, Erdan was forced to backtrack his insistence that jihadist-inspired terror was behind a controversial incident in a Bedouin village in which a local man was shot dead by police.In a statement, Erdan — who, in the aftermath of the January 18 incident, asserted that Yaqoub Mousa Abu Al-Qia’an was a nationalistically motivated terrorist, inspired by the Islamic State group — admitted it was “possible” he was mistaken.The minister came under fire from fellow lawmakers and others after a Justice Ministry probe reportedly found that Abu Al-Qia’an was not a terrorist, but was shot by mistake in the chaos of a pre-dawn operation to raze homes in the Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran.The incident took place in the early morning of January 18, when police arrived to demolish houses in the unrecognized village, which the state was seeking to remove in order to clear the way for a new Jewish town.As officers converged on Umm al-Hiran, Abu Al-Qia’an, 47, a teacher and father of 12, packed a few belongings into his SUV and drove from his house, telling friends that he did not wish to witness its destruction. Soon afterward, the vehicle rammed into a group of officers, killing 1st Sgt. Erez Levi, 34. Abu Al-Qia’an was fatally shot by police.Video footage that emerged in the hours after the incident showed that the officers fired before Abu Al-Qia’an accelerated, and that, contrary to police assertions, the car’s lights were on. In addition, Channel 10 reported in January that a police autopsy indicated that a police bullet hit him in the right knee, smashing it. The bullet wound may have caused Abu Al-Qia’an to lose control of his car, the TV report said.According to reports in Hebrew-language media in February, the Justice Ministry’s Police Internal Investigations Department found no evidence to support the claim that the incident in Umm al-Hiran was a terror attack, and also determined that police officers did not act according to protocol.Erdan was also criticized for seeming to overplay the number of blazes set during a rash of fires last year as having been set by nationally motivated arsonists.
