Rishi Sunak took over as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom today, after the resignation of Liz Truss, who spent less than 50 days in office. Sunak is considered an ally of Israel, having already declared that he sees Jerusalem as Israel's "historic capital".
Everything indicates that there will be a big movement to move the British embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – just as Donald Trump did in December 2017, when he unilaterally recognized the city of Jerusalem as the “indivisible capital” of the State of Israel.
These are brave moves. Despite Israel having established West Jerusalem as its capital in 1948 and concentrating its entire government structure in the city, the international community does not recognize and consider Tel Aviv the capital of the country.
