By Jonathan Benedek.. “And the many peoples shall go and say: “Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; That He may instruct us in His ways, And that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction shall come forth from Tzion, The word of Hashem from Yerushalayim.” Isaiah 2:3. With the Guatemalan flag already hoisted at the location of its new embassy in Jerusalem, there is a palpable mood of excitement among Israeli officials to see other countries doing the same very soon.

“I was moved to see the flag of Guatemala waving in Jerusalem in advance of the opening of the Guatemalan embassy later this month,” Netanyahu tweeted. “Dear friends, welcome back to our eternal capital!”

Although Guatemala has already raised its flag in Jerusalem’s Malcha Technology Park, its embassy officially opens on May 16, two days after the United States inaugurates its new embassy in the Israeli capital. The date of May 14 was selected to coincide with Israel’s 70th anniversary on the Gregorian calendar. Read the full story.
