Adelson offers to help Trump administration pay for US Jerusalem embassy

The Trump administration had previously said the move would be next year: "We anticipate having a small version of it open sometime next year", Trump said while meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Davos, Switzerland, in January.

According to the report, the unusual offer came shortly after US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December. The date is known as Israeli Independence Day to Israelis, and as the Naqba, or catastrophe, to Palestinians.

The new embassy will be located temporarily in a United States consular building in Jerusalem's Arnona neighborhood, the USA official said, while Washington seeks a permanent location.

Sheldon Adelson, a right-wing casino mogul and a major contributor to both Trump and Netanyahu, has reportedly offered to cover at least part of the cost of the new United States embassy building in Jerusalem.

Trump said many previous presidents had made the move an election promise but failed to fulfill it. "But I get it", he said. Palestinian refugees are now scattered across Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and other countries, while many have since settled in refugee camps in Palestine's West Bank and Gaza Strip. Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas delivered a rare address to the UN Security Council on Tuesday, calling for an global conference to be held later this year to launch a new, wider Middle East peace process and pave the way to Palestinian statehood.

She told the publication afterwards the medal could be a consolation after they'd had time to "reflect, but not at the moment". Many of the Team USA athletes took to Twitter to celebrate their win after the game. "I'm really sad for our team ".

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas this week travelled to the United Nations to call for an global conference by mid-2018 in which the United States would not have the central mediating role in launching a wider peace process.

But the timing of the move caused tensions between Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and US Ambassador David Friedman, CNN reported last month.

In 1948, a new state - "Israel" - was established inside historical Palestine.

One Israeli minister suggested the administration could potentially cut the ribbon and open the embassy on May 14 - Israel's independence day and its 70th anniversary - although in Israel, it will be celebrated on April 19 in the Hebrew calendar.

"The hardest deal to make of any kind is between the Israelis and Palestinians", Mr Trump told reporters Friday at the White House.
