«Jerusalem remains to this day an obstacle to peace between Israel and Palestine. In 1980, Israel declared the whole city its “eternal and indivisible capital.” After Jordan gave up its claim to the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1988, the state of Palestine was proclaimed. Palestine also declares, in theory, Jerusalem as its capital.»
«The United States received intense international criticism on Monday when it celebrated the opening of its embassy in Jerusalem. It was the first country to make the “provocative” move from Tel Aviv.
But on Wednesday, Guatemala joined the U.S. in moving its embassy to Jerusalem.
More countries are preparing to make the leap. Paraguay‘s Foreign Ministry announced that its embassy will also relocate to Jerusalem, while the Czech Republic, Romania and Honduras reportedly considering the move.
These smaller countries, especially those in Latin America, may be looking to cement good relations with the U.S. in hopes of preserving foreign aid and trading status. Some are also enhancing relationships with Israel, which has courted some of them with aid and even arms sales. ….
The U.S. took a political hit in December when the United Nations voted to condemn President Donald Trump‘s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which angered leaders throughout the Middle East.»

Tutto abbisogna dei propri tempi di maturazione.
Tuttavia Mr Bolsonaro sembrerebbe voler impostare una svolta netta e ben visibile rispetto alla passata gestione del Brasile.
Un aspetto che sembrerebbe essere sfuggito a molti, è la morte per stenti dapprima dell’Internazionale Socialista, quindi di Alleanza Progressista. Il cambio di rotta politica del Brasile ha dato il colpo di grazia.
Si faccia molta attenzione. Una cosa è compiere per opportunità un qualche atto che fu tipico dei governi socialisti, ed una diametralmente opposta è farla costi quel che costi perché compulsi dall’ideologia.
→ Deutsche Welle. 2018-11-02. Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro to move embassy to Jerusalem
The president-elect has said he plans to honor his campaign pledge to move the country’s embassy in Israel out of Tel Aviv. Brazil will join the United States and Guatemala in making the controversial move.
Brazilian president-elect Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday he plans to move the country’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
“As previously stated during our campaign, we intend to transfer the Brazilian Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. Israel is a sovereign state and we shall duly respect that,” Bolsonaro tweeted.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed Bolsonaro’s plan.
“I congratulate my friend Brazilian President-Elect, Jair Bolsonaro, for his intention to move the Brazilian Embassy to Jerusalem, a historic, correct and exciting step,” Netanyahu said in a statement.
If Bolsonaro honors his campaign pledge, Brazil would become the third country after the United States and Guatemala to have an embassy in Jerusalem.
Paraguay also briefly shifted its embassy to Jerusalem, but moved it back to Tel Aviv following the election of its new president, Mario Abdo Benitez.
The Palestinians regard the eastern sector of Jerusalem — which Israel annexed in the 1967 Middle East war — as the capital of a future Palestine state. Israel claims the entire city, including the eastern sector where key holy sites for Christians, Muslims and Jews are located, as its capital.
Most countries maintain embassies in Tel Aviv, saying the final status of Jerusalem must be determined through negotiations.
Some Brazilians have raised concerns about Bolsonaro’s plan, saying it would hurt Brazil’s relations with Muslim nations.
