Many are speculating that President Trump will not keep his promise about moving the US Embassy to Israel's capital Jerusalem
President Trump Repeatedly Promised that the US Embassy Will Be Moved to the Capital of the Jewish Nation = JERUSALEM!
1-26-17, Caroline B. Glick, Jerusalem Post [Excerpted] -- Today in Israel, excitement abounds about the new, friendly administration of President Donald Trump. [..snip]
Last Wednesday, Jan 18, 2017 PE Trump told Israel Hayom that he intended to keep his campaign promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel's capital of Jerusalem. The next day Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters to "stay tuned" on the embassy move, intimating that an announcement could come as early as Trump's first day in office.
On his first full day in office, Trump boldly moved overturning Obama's policies. But [so far] he ignored Jerusalem. [Apparently] Spicer made clear that the early plan to move quickly on the embassy has been abandoned. At his press briefing he wouldn't even commit to moving the embassy before the end of Trump's term of office.
Israel must move immediately to take advantage of the time it has with President Trump in power, and with the Republicans in control of Congress to ensure our interests in Judea and Samaria [aka West Bank] rallying Trump to support our policies.
Time is of the essence as Israel treads lightly, its opponents scored a victory. If Netanyahu doesn't seize the moment, the opportunity we have today will quickly slip away.

Delayed - Ignore the Waiver in June?
1-25-17, TheAtlantic -- Jerusalem is sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims around the world. It has therefore been one of the most symbolically laden—and contested—places on earth. Late last week, an unconfirmed report by Israel’s Channel 2 news suggested that President Donald Trump would soon announce the relocation of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, delivering on a promise he made repeatedly on the campaign trail.
All of Jerusalem is claimed by Israel as its “eternal and undivided capital.” But the eastern part is considered by anti Israel nations and Arab Muslim world to be occupied territory, and claimed by so called 'Palestinians' as the capital of their own future state. There is a distinct possibility the embassy move may never happen, with the prospect diminishing further, however slightly, with each passing day.
There are many half-measures the Trump administration could announce that fall far short of moving the embassy while allowing him to claim that he has fulfilled its promise. David Friedman, Trump’s nominee to serve as ambassador to Israel and a strong supporter of the settler movement, may reportedly operate out of Jerusalem—possibly in the U.S. consulate, the de facto embassy for the Palestinians—while the rest of the embassy stays behind in Tel Aviv. Friedman, who holds extreme views about Palestine and opposes a two-state peace agreement.
Date to watch: June 2017 - Will Pres Trump Sign Waiver of US Embassy ?
JERUSALEM EMBASSY ACT OF 1995 Public Law 104-45 104th Congress
In 1995, the U.S. Congress passed a law providing for the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem. However, allowing for a presidential waiver for six-month periods “to protect the national security interests of the United States.” That waiver has been invoked by every president until now. One of the simplest steps President Trump could take is to allow the waiver to lapse. More here:
