El Salvador moving embassy to Tel Aviv

El Salvador announced on Friday that it would be following Costa Rica and moving its Israeli embassy out of the capital city of Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv. El Salvador was the last country remaining whose embassy was located in Jerusalem.

"Considering the current situation in the Middle East, El Salvador has decided to move its diplomatic representation in the State of Israel…With the decision announced today, El Salvador seeks to contribute through diplomatic means to peace between all the parties involved," El Salvador’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said, adding that it would continue to “recognize and guarantee the right of Israel to exist and live in peace within internationally-recognized borders." [What a.... CiJ]

El Salvador’s President Tony Saca, is descended from Christian Arabs who emigrated before the founding of the State of Israel.

As recently as August 22nd, following Costa Rica’s decision to improve ties with Arab states by moving its embassy, El Salvador has claimed it had no intention of relocating its embassy.

El Salvador said it had made the decision to move the embassy in consultation with the Israeli government, led by former Jerusalem mayor, Ehud Olmert.
Regarding that last paragraph: Huh? This has been out since Friday (I pulled it off Arutz Sheva's web site where it appeared late Saturday night) and there has apparently been no denial from Olmert's office since then. Olmert is telling diplomats to move out of Jerusalem? What's that all about?

Olmert plans to move the capital to Tel Aviv? What's your source for that one?

It's my gut feeling, or maybe an educated guess based on the thought pattern of the clown.
I hope I'm wrong, though.
