The Trump affect is in full swing in regards to Israel, because great leadership is always emulated. It looks like Honduras will be next. And Brazil as well. Palestinian Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat has threatened to end ties with countries that open a Jerusalem embassy. What Erekat does not seem to understand is that the days of the world appeasing his terrorist organization is over. The world would much rater embrace Israel, and exploit Israeli technology and innovation to benefit their citizens. Most especially in Africa and Latin America.
Malawi to open embassy in Jerusalem
By Jerusalem Post, September 6, 2020
The African country of Malawi over the weekend announced that it would open an embassy in Jerusalem, following similar announcements by Serbia and Kosovo.
To date, only the United States and Guatemala have embassies in Jerusalem, while the remainder of the 87 embassies in Israel are located in the Tel Aviv area.
The east African majority-Christian country has had relations with Israel since 1964, but neither country has opened an embassy on the other’s territory.
On Friday, Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera spoke of opening an embassy in Jerusalem as he addressed the country’s parliament and spoke of the need to reform its Foreign Ministry.
“The reforms will also include a review of our diplomatic presence, including our resolve to have new diplomatic missions in Lagos, Nigeria, and Jerusalem, Israel. I will be sharing more details about this in the near future.”
Should Malawi make good on its pledge, it would be the first African country to take this step.
The bulk of the international community has refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, holding that such status could only be granted upon conclusion of a final status agreement for a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
US President Donald Trump’s peace plan clarifies that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. America has pushed for other countries to recognize this by relocating their embassies there.
