Honduras and Brazil planning to move embassies in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

On track to join Guatemala and the US in moving embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Honduras is holding talks with the US and Israel on the subject. The meeting was held in Brazil next to the inauguration of its new president Jair Bolsonaro, who has said the Brazil’s move to Jerusalem is a question of “when, not if.” The embassy moves are strongly supported by massive Protestant Christian groups in the countries, as well as the political motivation of the right-leaning or right-wing governments to improve their relations with the US. These moves continue to be condemned by Palestinian activists and Muslim countries around the world, and it remains to be seen whether a significant number of countries, beyond the small number in the Western hemisphere, will make the move that impacts Israeli-palestinian relations and any future peace agreements.
