Lapid, Lieberman Urge U.S. to Recognize Yerushalayim as Israel’s Capital 

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and opposition Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid on Monday urged President Trump to recognize Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital and relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv, Times of Israel reports.
Lieberman brushed off threats of violence by Palestinians and the wider Arab world, saying Israel will “know how to deal with all the ramifications” of any U.S. recognition. He hailed Yerushalayim recognition as the “right step” and a measure that would be “very, very important to all Jewish people.”
Lapid said the U.S. should have recognized Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital “70 years ago,” or at the very least “the day after ’67,” referring to the Six-Day War when Israel reclaimed the whole city.
