The Israeli-American fashion rivalry has been a constant source of controversy since the US began trading diplomatic recognition of Israel in 1979, which sparked an unprecedented diplomatic crisis that has lasted for nearly a decade.
Since the end of last year, the US has refused to recognize the State of Israel, saying it violates international law.
While the US was largely supportive of the current Israeli-US diplomatic process, the situation has been particularly heated between the two sides in the past few months.
As part of the new process, American President Donald Trump has said he will move forward with plans to move the embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
But the latest diplomatic spat between the US and Israel has been more heated than the one that occurred in 1979.
The American side has argued that a new Israeli embassy in Washington would violate international law, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the US move an attack on Israel.
Both sides have expressed anger over the issue of a new embassy in the US.
Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu has said that he would move his government to Washington as soon as possible if the US does not recognise his government as Israel’s legitimate government.
In February, US Senator Ben Cardin, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, announced that he plans to introduce legislation to change the US Constitution to recognise Israel as Israel.
However, the bill has not yet been passed.
A senior US diplomat said that the US government is currently reviewing whether or not to move to Jerusalem.
“We’re reviewing it right now,” the official told the New York Times.
“It’s important to note that this is not a unilateral action.”
However, many in the Israeli community are concerned that the move could escalate the diplomatic spat.
Some commentators, such as Haaretz’s Yossi Melman, have suggested that the Trump administration is hoping to escalate the conflict between Israel and the US to a military level by threatening to withdraw the US from the Middle East peace process.
In the meantime, the American government has made no comment on the matter, and US President Donald Trumps spokesman Sean Spicer did not comment on his counterpart’s statements.
The Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC, has not responded to a request for comment on whether the US would follow through with the move.
