Saturday, May 14 marks the 74th anniversary of the founding of modern Israel by secular power and the fourth anniversary of the US embassy in Jerusalem, recognized by President Donald Trump as the undivided capital of Israel.
As Breitbart reported on the location at the time, a beam of light struck from above as soon as the embassy’s seal was revealed.
The embassy also posted an enlarged copy of the Jerusalem Embassy Act, passed by Congress in 1995 and signed by President Bill Clinton, ordering the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem.
Officially, the embassy dedication ceremony began with the announcement of colors, the chanting of the American flag and the opening remarks of the US Ambassador to Korea, David Friedman.
“Today we are opening the US Embassy in Jerusalem.
The opening prayer was by Pastor Robert Jeffress and Rabbi Zalman Wolowick, who quoted Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem”.
Ethiopian Israeli singer Hagit Yaso, whose parents crossed Sudan and arrived in Israel, sang a creepy version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, which brought many audiences to tears.
[W]A ray of light struck the stone of Jerusalem as White House adviser and daughter of the president, Ivanka Trump, officially unveiled the embassy seal above the entrance.
Ivanka Trump’s husband, White House adviser Jared Kushner, also emphasized that the United States is committed to negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
The embassy’s approval indirectly led to peace negotiations with several Arab and Islamic countries. Palestinians have most recently launched terrorism and riots in an attempt to disrupt the growing Israeli-Arab negotiating movement.
