Israel prepares on Sunday for the opening ceremony of the new US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, a move that has sparked Palestinian protests.
May 14 is also the 70th anniversary of the date that U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized Israel, which is the reason the embassy transfer was scheduled for that date. Friedman, like other US officials, insisted that the move will help the peace process, regardless of what Palestinian leaders have said.
A reception Sunday included members of a delegation led by President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka, his senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner and Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin.
Israel on Sunday kicked off festivities to celebrate the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, even as it bolstered its forces along the Gaza border and in the West Bank in anticipation of mass Palestinian protests of the move.
"Obviously security is a concern, but it's not an overwhelming feeling right now", the official said, speaking only on background.
He called on other countries to follow the United States move, saying that "in any peace that you could possibly imagine, Jerusalem will remain as Israel's capital".
"We're hard at work on it". We do not want to become a people of disabilities. Forty-two protesters have been killed during the past month of weekly protests.
The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, and view the relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv as a 1-sided move that invalidates the U.S. as a Mideast peace broker. "The United States government has taken a number of actions to ensure that not only our governmental interests but the American people in that region are secure as well, and we're comfortable we've taken action that reduces that risk", said the top USA diplomat.
"There are handsome views here that will be blocked by the big wall they're planning to build", said Naomi Schachter, who's sought to block the project with other neighbors. "We are moving into a new phase and they [the Palestinians] have a big opportunity with this new president, who's quite supportive of them".

"The threats aren't going to go away".
But Israel is not letting the threat of violence boring its party.
The IDF has described the protests in the border region during the past several weeks as "a violent riot", asserting that protesters have thrown Molotov cocktails and rocks at its soldiers, opened fire on them, set tires on fire and attempted to pass into Israel's borders. "Anytime there's a high profile event and delegation like this it pays to be concerned and keep an eye on things".
Pompeo said he was aware that there could be security concerns for USA embassies and citizens in the region in the coming days. "This should not be a cause for violence, there should be a cause for celebration".
