Sixty-nine years after Israel declared Jerusalem as its capital, and 23 years after the US Congress passed a law mandating that Washington move its embassy there, the US formally opened its embassy in the city on Monday afternoon. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the move "courageous" and "momentous," telling President Trump that "by recognizing history, you have made history. All of us are deeply moved. All of us are deeply grateful."
Fox News Radio's Guy Benson & Marie Harf sat down with Former US Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro to get his thoughts on the Embassy opening.
How he views this move: I supports the move on merit, the only concern I have is that Trump failed to speak up on the two state solution. (1:45)
What is the mood on the ground: a lot of appreciation for the move, but today was a very violent day. Much concern on what happens next. (3:30)
Does the Administration have a plan for where this goes next: I think they have been working on a peace plan, but the circumstances are almost impossible to do that. (6:39)
