Israel at 70: jubilant US embassy opening masks fevered times | World news | The Guardian
Move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is celebrated in land where ‘Netanyahu is king and Trump is a god’
Flowers – red, white and blue – form the image of the US flag on the road leading up to the site of the new American mission in Jerusalem. “US embassy” signs have been hoisted in the neighbourhood. The US embassy Twitter account – previously in Tel Aviv as @usembassytlv – is now @usembassyjlm.
All is set for the inauguration on Monday, an opening charged with symbolism that its organisers anticipate will set off a wave of euphoria across the Jewish state 70 years since it declared independence on 14 May 1948.
