For Donald Trump, several of those await in occupied Jerusalem and Bethlehem next week.In the meantime, Trump has appointed as his envoy to Israel David Friedman, a devout Jew who insists the embassy must be moved and plans to work out of Jerusalem some days of the week.Trump intends to visit the Western Wall too, something past presidents have not done because of the political sensitivities.Trump is scheduled to visit Abbas for an hour Tuesday in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, which lies a few kilometers south of Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank.Both Palestinians and Israelis will be on alert to see what language Trump uses when he meets Abbas.After negotiating that diplomatic minefield, Trump is scheduled to visit Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial.
