President Donald Trump's decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv broke with generations of global consensus that Jerusalem's status should be settled as part of a two-state peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

The couple - both senior White House advisers - will attend the ceremony.

President Trump's last name is used for branding purposes throughout the world.

The decision to move the embassy has been greeted with anger from Palestinians. The Mufti also called for commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Nakba.

Israel considers the entire city its capital, while the Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

"Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible approximately 650 times", Netanyahu said.

Lindsey Graham's office said he would be among a delegation of senators, also including Ted Cruz, who would attend the opening ceremony and meet with Israeli officials about "counter-terrorism and national security issues".

A United States delegation has flown to Israel amid rising tensions ahead of planned protests against the controversial move of the American embassy to Jerusalem and ralllies calling for the Palestinians' right of return to the homes from which they were expelled from in 1948.

On Monday, the official dedication ceremony will be held in the new US consulate-turned-embassy in Jerusalem's Arnona neighborhood. Tens of thousands of Palestinians are expected to gather along the border between Gaza and Israel on Monday to protest the embassy opening.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Trump was fulfilling a key campaign promise by moving the embassy.

"We look forward to celebrating Israel's 70th anniversary and the bright future ahead", Ivanka wrote on Instagram ahead of the opening, which will take place on Monday, exactly seven decades since the country declared independence.

"We will not accept the deal", Abbas told a PLO convention two weeks ago, referring to the plan reportedly being prepared by Trump's Kushner-led Mideast team.

Why is the move so controversial?
