Jerusalem tensions cast shadow over Holy Land Christmas

Morales said in his official Facebook account that he spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the return of the Guatemala embassy to Jerusalem and that he instructed the chancellor to initiate the process to do so.

"We will also defend the rights and justice of Orthodox and Catholics in Jerusalem if necessary, as we did throughout history", he said, asserting that Turkey "will not allow" Jerusalem "into a bloodbath".

Guatemala and neighbouring Honduras were two of only a handful of countries to join Israel and the United States, which has pledged to move its embassy to Jerusalem, in voting against the U.N. resolution.

On Friday, Morales foreshadowed the decision he was to make regarding Jerusalem, as he defended his government's vote at the UN backing the United States.

Lanzini will be serving the second match of his ban in this contest, depriving Moyes of his top playmaker since Lanzini leads the team with four assists in all competitions. "It is very, very important".

"We have a Christian way of thinking that, as well as the politics of it, has us believing that Israel is our ally and we must support it". Blackmail is the word for making a supporting vote a condition of U.S. aid.

It came after US President Donald Trump threatened to cut financial aid to those who backed the resolution. Thirty-five nations abstained from the vote.

Others, such as Britain, France, Germany and South Korea were in the majority of 128 nations denouncing any unilateral decision to view Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"From Iran's perspective (and that of the Arab countries), there could be no happier outcome, despite the vote's declarative and non-binding nature".

The Palestinian leader doubled down on that vow in a Christmas letter to Palestinian Christians, writing that the White House is "biased" towards Israel and that the U.S. plan "is not going to be based on the two-state solution on the 1967 border, nor is it going to be based on worldwide law or United Nations resolutions".
