Yet Another Embassy Moves to Jerusalem

US President Donald Trump got the ball rolling, and now a steady stream of other nations are moving their embassies

The ball is now rolling.

US President Donald Trump's fulfillment of a decades-old congressional decision to move America's embassy to Jerusalem has prompted a growing number of other nations to do the same.

Last week, Guatemala followed close on Trump's heels by moving its embassy to the Holy City, and this week Paraguay will become the third nation to thus cement its recognition of the Jewish state's right to choose its own capital city.

Paraguy's president, Horacio Cartes, arrived in Israel on Sunday for the inauguration of his country's new mission, which will open in Jerusalem on Monday.
