Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales has declared his government will be moving the nation’s Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This move follows President Trump’s announcement of the same two weeks ago that caused an international stir and prompted the United Nations to draft a resolution against the move.
Guatemala was one of nine countries that voted against the U.N. resolution.
Morales attributed the decision to a discussion he had with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Some are already accusing Morales of succumbing to threats by President Trump, who indicated through U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley that the U.S. would be taking names of those who vote in favor of the resolution:
United States Ambassador the United Nations Nikki Haley made a bold statement to the world today on Twitter. As the U.N. prepares to vote in the general assembly on a resolution condemning any move of an embassy to Jerusalem as President Trump announced last week, Haley warned that we “will be taking names.”
“At the UN we’re always asked to do more & give more. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American ppl, abt where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us. On Thurs there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice. The US will be taking names.”
Guatemala and neighboring Honduras, who also voted against the resolution, are two of the biggest recipients of American aid in Central America. This move is very likely to encourage the President to embrace the impoverished country even more, perhaps redirecting aid earmarked for other countries who voted in favor of the resolution.
GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) – Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales said on Sunday he had given instructions to move the Central American country’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a few days after his government backed the United States in a row over the city’s status.
In a short post on his official Facebook account, Morales said he decided to move the embassy from Tel Aviv after talking to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
