Guatemala moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

President Jimmy Morales Cabrera of Guatemala ceremonially dedicated his country’s embassy in Jerusalem on Tuesday, alongside Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, cabinet ministers and the mayor of Jerusalem, two days after the US embassy’s dedication in the capital. The new embassy is located in the Technology Park in Malcha. Tuesday night, the Old City walls were illuminated with the flags of Guatemala and Israel. Guatemala was in fact the first nation to recognize the city as Israel’s capital and established its first embassy there in 1959. Forty years ago, it was moved to Tel Aviv.

    Good. I hope that Israel reciprocates with lots of bilateral and mutually advantageous business partnerships. Let the record show that Guatemala stood by Israel when cowards in the EU and the Arab world and elsewhere did not ( my own country, Canada, was one of the pro-Terrorstinian cowards that did not attend and does not have its embassy in Jerusalem).

      Yes, important point. These are the brave among the cowards, terror enablers and backers.

    The Philippines under president Rodrigo Duterte also recognizes Yerushalayim as the capital of Israel. Now, we just have to move it there.
