Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales confirmed on Sunday night that his country will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem on May 16, two days after the United States moves its embassy to the Israeli capital.

His announcement came at a speech at the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington.

“On December 24 of last year, Guatemala was the first country to join the United States and announce that we will be returning our embassy to Jerusalem. I would like to thank President Donald Trump for leading the way,” said Morales.

“I decided to return the Guatemalan embassy to Jerusalem. As a sovereign decision, we recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” he added.

Earlier on Sunday, Morales met Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who told him, “Thank you for everything you’re doing, for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. I hope soon you will move your embassy to Jerusalem; we hope.”

Morales replied, “It is an honor and it is the right thing to do.”

On Saturday, Guatemala’s Constitutional Court rejected a local lawyer’s attempt to prevent the government from moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

A court spokesman said the high court’s five magistrates turned down a request from lawyer Marco Vinicio Mejia, who argued in a petition filed in January that the embassy move was contrary to international law. (Click to Source)

Honduras And Panama To Move Embassies To Jerusalem

Following the U.S. and Guatemalan decisions recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announcing plans to move their respective embassies to the ancient city, other Central American countries, Honduras and Panama, have announced to the Palestinian Authority that they are following suit.

The news is a huge political victory for Israel and Israeli sovereignty over the Holy City.  Just days before the announcement, the Czech Republic officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and in conjunction with Hungary helped block an E.U. resolution that would voiced opposition to Trump’s recent decision.

Evans Mobilizing 31M Followers to Influence World Leaders to Move Their Embassies to Jerusalem

An evangelical leader in Israel is hoping to build momentum for more nations to move their embassies in Israel to Jerusalem.

Mike Evans is the founder of the Friends of Zion Museum and one of President Trump’s biggest cheerleaders.

Evans latest tribute to Trump is a New Year’s Day wish in the form of a four-story digital banner on the facade of the Friends of Zion Heritage Center.  It reads “Thank You, President Trump. You’re making Israel Greater.”

He’s planning a ‘royal welcome’ for Vice President Mike Pence when he arrives in mid-January with over 110 billboards, buses, and even camels.

Perhaps more importantly, Evan is mobilizing his 31 million followers to influence world leaders to stand with Israel and the Jewish people and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The objective is to have as many other states join Guatemala’s Evangelical President Morales and follow President Trump’s declaration and move their Embassies to Jerusalem.

Evans pledged that every world leader that says “yes” would receive the Friend of Zion Award.

He recognized Trump’s declaration by presenting him with the Friends of Zion Award during a ceremony in the Oval Office with Vice President Pence and faith leaders representing over 150 million Christians globally.

Evans also initiated a campaign to blanket the city with more than 100 banners that read ‘God Bless Trump.’

The campaign includes a giant banner that reads “God Bless Trump From Jerusalem, DC (David’s Capital) to Washington, DC.”

The campaign began on December 6th when Trump made his historic announcement that he was recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and would begin the process of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, as mandated in the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act.

Since then, the banner has appeared on billboards, buses, and even camels.

“We believe what he (Trump) did is going to bring the blessing of God on our own country America,” Evans told CBN News.

“President Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem will secure his place in history as the first American president to take that step since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948,” Evans said.

Evans and other evangelical leaders have hailed Trump as a modern-day Cyrus, the Persian King in the Bible who helped the Jewish people return to Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile.

He believes that for hundreds of millions of Evangelical Christians around the globe, Trump is an answer to prayer.  He compares President Trump’s declaration Jerusalem to the 1917 Balfour Declaration that called for a homeland for the Jewish people and President Truman’s acceptance of Israel into the family of nations in 1948.

Evans wrote, “No president in history has ever built such an alliance for the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and no president has courageously stood up for the State of Israel on the global stage as President Trump.”

He founded the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem to tell the stories and history of Christian Zionists who helped the Jewish people throughout history and especially before the founding of the modern state of Israel. (Click to Source)

Guatemala Says It Will Move Its Embassy From Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

Guatemala was one of a handful of nations to vote with Israel and the U.S. at the UN last week.

The president of Guatemala says the Central American country will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, becoming the first nation to follow the lead of U.S. President Donald Trump in ordering the change.

Guatemala was one of nine nations that voted earlier this week with the United States when the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a non-binding resolution denouncing Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales said on his official Facebook account Sunday that after talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he decided to instruct his foreign ministry to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Guatemala and Israel have long had close ties, especially in security matters and Israeli arms sales to Guatemala. No other country has their embassy for Israel in Jerusalem, though the Czech Republic has said it is considering such a move.

Trump upended decades of U.S. policy with his announcement that he was recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Though Trump said he was merely recognizing reality and not prejudging negotiations on the future borders of the city, Palestinians saw the move as siding with Israel on the most sensitive issue in the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

The resolution passed at the UN declared the U.S. action on Jerusalem “null and void.” The 128-9 vote was a victory for Palestinians, but fell short of the total they had predicted. Thirty-five nations abstained and 21 stayed away from the vote.

Voting against the resolution, alongside Israel and the United States, were Guatemala, which joined Honduras, Marshal Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo.

Despite the change in Jerusalem’s status, Trump delayed relocating the American embassy from Tel Aviv. (Click to Source)
