The lack of foreign embassies in Israel's capital distances peace because it feeds the Palestinian delusion that there is no connection between the Jews and Israel to Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday shortly after US President Donald Trump signed a waiver keeping the US embassy in Tel Aviv.

A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said that Israel's consistent position has been that the US embassy, like all the embassies in Israel, needs to be located in Jerusalem.

The statement said that despite disappointment that that the embassy will not be moved, “Israel appreciates the friendly words of President Trump and his commitment to move the embassy to Jerusalem at a later date.”
