Israeli Minister of transport stated this in connection with the decision of the U.S. President to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
Israeli Minister of transport proposed to call the new train station at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem in honor of the President of the United States Donald trump, who recently announced the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The plan proposed by Minister Israel Katz at a recent meeting with the leadership of the company, “Israel Railways”, provides for the expansion construction of high-speed railway to the Western Wall and construction of a new station.
Katz suggested naming the station in honor of trump in gratitude “for his brave and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
The Wailing wall, or Western wall is the main place of prayer for Jews and the third holiest site of Islam.
Offer, this will likely cause resistance from the world community, which does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over East Jerusalem and the Old city, which is part of modern Jerusalem. The Eastern part of the city where the Western Wall was captured by Israel during the six day war in 1967.
The Palestinians want to make East Jerusalem and the Old city, where the Muslim, Christian and Jewish Holy sites, the capital of their future state.
For tunneling to the Wall, you will need to work near archaeological sites, which may entail problems, legal and logistic services.
Despite the potential objections, the official representative of the Ministry of transport Avner Ovadia said that, in the absence of serious complications, the plan could be approved next year.
The decision trump Jerusalem angered the Palestinians and much of the Muslim world. Last week, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution condemning the decision of the American leader.
