An Israeli organization has minted a coin bearing President Donald Trump’s image to honor his decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem. The Mikdash Educational Center said Wednesday that the “Temple Coin” featured Trump alongside King Cyrus, who 2,500 years ago allowed Jews to return to Jerusalem from their exile in Babylon. A representative from the center said that they wanted to honor President Trump on the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence.
"In an action not seen in more than a century, the leaders of Jerusalem’s churches closed the doors of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Sunday in a show of united protest. The dramatic decision comes in response to moves by Jerusalem authorities to begin collecting tens of millions of dollars in taxes from churches, as well as proposed legislation to confiscate church-owned land."
